My eyes are somewhat sensitive but I wear daily contacts b/ of my need for moisture and this hasn't had any negative effect on my eyes, contacts or sensitivity at all!

Question
Use with "tubing" mascaras
Can this be used with tubing mascaras (such as Blinc or Kevyn Aucoin)? I have thin eyelashes and definitely see an improvement on how my mascara looks when I use a primer. I am just concerned since the concept of the tubing mascaras is completely different than the majority of mascaras.

Has anybody used the Urban Decay one?
I love Urban Decay and Smashbox. Which one will curl more? Smashbox is a little cheaper, so I might try that one first.

I have the smashbox and use it with my Buxom mascara. This one is cheaper but I am totally in love with it. I don't ever skip a day without this under my mascara. It has made my eyelashes longer and fully with the conditioning serum, since I had thin eyelashes to begin with. I love this for everyday use. It holds my mascara on great. No raccoon eyes, even during my track workouts, it keeps my mascara on! Which I was worried about when I ordered it. I defiantly would recommend this to you.

answer 2
go to the store and use try one on one eye, and one on the other. bring your own mascara so you know how each reacts with what you already have. (have a contest LOL)

i personally prefer administering the "accidentally scratching my eye test" and see which one will hold better with an accidental scratch.

note that people have a different reaction per product, so its best that you see how it reacts to you, not to other people.

Question
How should I apply this?
Should I apply mascara immediately after? Wait for it to dry a little? Wait for it to dry completely? I have to use a lot of mascara to cover up the white, and it can get clumpy so I'm wondering how to use this for the best effect. Also does anyone know if this improves your lashes over time (strength, length, volume)?

answer 1
after alot of trial and error. i hold the primer and my mascara in the same hand. i take the primer and use it first on top lashes. then before i move to the bottom i apply mascara to the top before it has a chance to dry completely. this (for me) prevents clumping and gives my lashes a little extra length. then i repeat the same process on the bottom lashes.

I'd apply the mascara immediately after. I have tried waiting for the primer to dry first and I don't get as good a result as when I apply mascara immediately after.

Try applying mascara right after applying the serum while it is still wet to prevent dryness or clumps- over time this does help to strengthen and soften the lashes.

Question
Smashbox vs. Clinique
I want to buy a mascara primer but I can't decide between the Clinique one or the Smashbox one. Which one creates the illusion of thicker, longer, healthier lashes?

answer 2
For me, the Clinique lash primer does not curl your lashes but makes them stick almost straight up, like an L if applied from the roots to the tip of my lashes but this really makes my short lashes appear long. Once I apply mascara on top of that, they look unreal: thick, volumized. I can't say they look false because they're not SUPER long (only because I have short lashes). The Smashbox one curls a lot nicer (it looks prettier) and my lashes look more like the curvey part of a candy cane instead. I like the Smashbox brush better because I find it easier to get my lashes the way I want them to curl. The Clinique lash primer gives so much volume, more than the Smashbox one, but I'd rather have nicely curled lashes and wear a good mascara on top instead.

So if you like dramatic eyes, I'd reccommend the Clinique lash primer but if not, Smashbox is much better. They're both great primers and if you do have a chance, try them both on... maybe one on each eye because it's a matter of preference and the length of your eyelashes you happen to have.

I've never tried Clinique, but I can tell you from experience that the Smashbox Lash Primer will not just create the ILLUSION of well-defined, softer, longer lashes, but it will help your lashes become them! It's definitely what you're looking for.

Because the Lancome is made to be more of a lengthener & Smashbox is made to be more of a strengthener, to I use them both together. I wouldn't live without either of them. I use the Smash box first to protect my lashes & then the Cils Booster XL to give them that great lengthening power.
