I ordered this last month when Urban Decay had their Friends & Family sale. I have been wearing primer underneath my mascara for as long as I can remember. I find that it helps add that extra oomph for me, especially when I am just donning mascara for school and work and forgoing the falsies.
I was intrigued when I took out the wand and noticed the little fibers in the formula. I have never tried a mascara with fibers before but have heard and read about them. You can see the fibers in the wand below:
I was a tad worried about the fibers only because I am a contact lens wearer and had read about some people who had experienced irritation because of them. Luckily, I had no problems with this primer potion. See what Urban Decay has to say about the fibers in their primer:
The primer is white as you can see, and it does tint your lashes white once applied on the lashes.
When I'm doing my morning makeup routine, I apply this primer to both eyes and then move on to blush while I wait for it to dry. Then I go back and do two coats of mascara.
(I always comb through my lashes with a lash comb after apply mascara to get rid of clumps.) My lashes would be stick straight and skinny without this extra step. I don't think that I would ever go back and just use only mascara.
Here is what my lashes look like with only mascara on:
As you can see, they need all of the extra length and volume they can get.
- Fibers help extend lashes
- Wand is small enough to get into corners and small lashes
- Cute & sturdy packaging
- White wand will gets dirty quite easily
- Expensive at $20
Repurchase? Sure. I am having lots of fun using it and it doesn't irritate my eyes at all. What do you think about primers under mascara? Do you need this extra step?
