From The Manufacturer

Pink-tinted mascara primer thickens lashes for voluptuous volume and helps enhance the wear of your mascara. Conditioning pink primer formula, infused with rose oil, helps adhere mascara to lashes for enhanced mascara wear. Soft wavy mascara brush with over 200 bristles holds maximum formula to coat and prepare lashes for mascara. Use before mascara – glide brush from lash base to lash tip, allow primer to dry before applying mascara on top. Tested under ophthalmological control, suitable primer mascara for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.


You use foundation primer on your face and eyeshadow primer on your lids, so why not use a base coat of product under your mascara? Pre-mascara primers come in tubes that look like regular mascaras, but the product inside is either clear, white or white with a subtle tint. That gets covered up by the mascara, though, so you won’t see the lighter color.

These primers create moisturizing shields around each lash and contain oils, waxes and other smoothing ingredients that make mascara cling better. They prep the lashes for what is to come, giving them more volume, definition and sometimes curl. Some also contain nourishing ingredients like oils, waxes and collagen that keep eyelashes healthy and moisturized. If you want even more volume, shop for ones that contain mini fibers.

Like mascaras, these primers come with different kinds of applicator brushes. Some products offer a primer on one side and mascara on the opposite for added convenience. Primers are usually less expensive than mascara, and you only need to put on one coat. Follow that up with one or more coats of your regular mascara.

To apply a pre-mascara primer, curl your eyelashes first. Apply one thin layer of primer from the roots down to the tips of your lashes and allow to dry for 30 seconds. Then, you can put on your favorite mascara. It only takes about a minute or two to put on the primer, which adds almost no time to your daily routine.
