Lash Primer Lancome CILS booster applied on model

Lash primer is possibly one of the most under-rated beauty products. Not only can you apply it under your mascara to plump up those lashes for long, thick perfection, but it will boost your lash condition and health long term as well. 

Read on to discover the eight best lash primers that users are raving about.

Lancome Cils Booster Xl Mascara Enhancing Base

LANCÔME CILS BOOSTER XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base- $26

Sephora (3,000 reviews):
Ulta (600 reviews):

Lancome’s lash primer is described as a mascara enhancing base because the white pigment helps mascara stand out more intensely when applied on top.

That’s not the only benefit: this water-based product also helps to lift and separate the lashes, help the mascara go on smoothly, and keeps the mascara from rubbing off under the eye.

I don’t know about you but I’m sold on the promise of no-panda-eyes alone!

Estēe Lauder Lash Primer Plus

Estēe Lauder Lash Primer Plus – $26

Macy's (350 reviews):
Nordstrom (300 reviews):

Estēe Lauder make a conditioning base primer that can be used two ways: to help maximize the benefits of your mascara and to wear overnight to give your lashes a conditioning treatment.

There is much debate among beauty lovers about whether to wait for lash primer to dry before applying mascara or apply mascara while the primer is still wet. With this product Estēe Lauder definitively recommend, for best results, to immediately apply mascara while the primer is wet.

It promises more curl, length and volume. One user described her lashes as starting to grow thicker and longer within two weeks of use.

Target (1,200 reviews):

Honest Beauty’s Extreme Lash Mascara + Primer is a 2-in-1 goodie for glorious lashes.

First apply the primer, wait 30 seconds, then apply the included mascara.

One of the standouts of this product is the very tiny bristle brush which helps to catch and separate all the little hairs. This product is designed to boost lash length, volume and definition.
