  1. […] KVD Epic Curl Lash Primer–I’ve tried almost every mascara primer on the market and and this one is the BEST, no contest. My lashes looked long, voluminous, and separated with any mascara I paired with this primer. If you don’t use a mascara primer, you should start, and you should use this one. It’s just pure magic in a tube. I would pay $50 for this. For real. (reviewed here) […]
