Best vs. The Rest :: Mascara Primer

Best: LOreal Voluminous Lash Primer
Test: Makeup Revolution Good Vibes Blowout! Volume Lash Primer & Milk Makeup KUSH Lash Primer

Tested with Lancome Monsieur Big :: Lashes on your left (my right eye) doesn’t have primer, lashes on your right (my left


LOreal Voluminous Lash Primer

Highlights–Instantly thicker, longer lashes :: mascara amplifier :: amplify any lash look :: nourish lashes

Price–$8.99 at Ulta, Walgreens :: $6.89 at Target :: $6.74 at Wal Mart :: $6.63 on Amazon

Cruelty Free–No

Pros–Affordable :: easily accessible :: agree with all claims :: makes a huge difference in mascara application and end result of how lashes look

Cons–Not cruelty free

Final Thoughts–LOVE this product and I use it every single day with any and all mascaras :: I’ve tried primers from other affordable brands and high end brands and none of them compare. Primer is an extra step that most people skip, but it’s necessary for me and my poor lashes. This makes my lashes look longer, fuller, and thicker. I’ve repurchased multiple times and will continue to. The product is white so you can see where you’ve applied it on your lashes. You get a good amount of product on the wand to apply to your lashes. It’s a can’t live without it product for me.


Makeup Revolution Blow Out!

Highlights–Nourish lashes :: preps lashes for mascara :: thicker, longer lashes

Price–$8.00 at Ulta, revolutionbeauty.com

Cruelty Free–Yes

Pros–Affordable :: cruelty free

Cons–Availability (Ulta or online only) :: don’t get a lot of product on the wand :: product doesn’t transfer from wand to lashes easily

Final Thoughts–Natural bristle wand :: fussy–have to keep dipping in to get product on the wand and really work the wand into your lashes to get the product on them :: made my lashes clumpy, no real noticeable difference :: do not like


Milk Makeup KUSH

Highlights–Wand/brush shape made to define, separate, & coat each lash :: volumizing fibers :: conditioning formula to amplify the results of mascara

Price–$12-24 at Sephora, milkmakeup.com

Cruelty Free–Yes and vegan

Pros–Mini size for travel/testing :: luxe, heavy packaging :: unique wand shape :: clean at Sephora product :: agree with all claims

Cons–Expensive :: availability

Final Thoughts–I bought this at TJ Maxx for $7.99 and at that price, I’d buy it again. However, I wouldn’t pay full price for it. I really love the unique wand shape. It grabs and coats each lash. My lashes looked more separated, full, and thick. LOreal does all the same things and is much cheaper.


LOreal is still the best! Good & cheap–my favorite combo.
