this product really lifts your lashes and gives them length but it doesn't give them any curl and doesn't give much volume but this is my favorite lash primer and i will buy again

- Ulta User

i use this every day with my tarte lifted sweatproof mascara, and the combination is absolute perfection

- Tartecosmetics User

my mascara lasts all day and i get asked all time time where i get my eyelash extensions done when all i'm doing is wearing primer

easy to apply prepares your lashes for mascara and allows it to last all day

- Ulta User

clumping

not clumping

no clumps

- Ulta User

completely non-irritating on my eyes, makes my mascara look incredible, and lengths while plumping the lashes without getting heavy or clumpy

- Tartecosmetics User

look

dramatic

this is a must for making your lashes look full and dramatic

- Sephora User

this comes with the lights camera lashes though and i compared using the two different mascaras with this primer and the lights camera lashes gives a more feathery look while the tarteist will give a look that is more dramatic

Keeps the curl in my lashes

I have had a great deal of trouble getting my lashes to stay curled. This primer, along with waterproof mascara, keeps the curl and volumizes at the same time. I apply a thin coat of this primer and then follow that with a coat or two of mascara and my lashes stay curled all day. I've tried other primer with disappointing results, but a friend recommended this one and I couldn't be happier. I've finally found a remedy for my stick straight lashes. I warm the curler up with the hair dryer for a few seconds and then curl my lashes, waiting for the curler to completely cool off before removing it. I then apply a coat of this primer and then mascara and VIOLA!! my lashes stand at attention and also have a lot of volume and length. There's not a single thing negative I can say about this product. It works beautifully and my lashes don't clump and there's no smudging. My lashes look just curled when I get home in the evening, so this is definitely my new go to lash product. It goes on white but dries clear and quickly. It adds that little bit of extra oomph to my lashes that I definitely need now that my lashes have become sparser. They're still long but not as lush as they once were. I now even get compliments on them, which is crazy but that's what a big difference this primer has made. I definitely recommend it especially if you're having issue with your lashes holding a curl. It works like a charm. Certainly some kind of magic going on with it and I'm just glad I discovered it.

I love this product. It has saved my lashes so many times when I feel as though they won’t cooperate. It lengthens and prevents clumping.

Several years ago, I tried a lash primer by a different brand, but I gave up on it; I am so glad I tried Opening Act about a month ago as it is far superior. It adds much needed length and volume to my lashes without making them look clumpy. I typically layer it with Gifted for a more natural look or with Lights Camera Lashes for a more dramatic effect.

Dissapointed

I have purchased this product on a whim as my usual go to primer: Urban Decay Subversion Lash Primer was sold out. The reason I purchased it was due to the fact that it was labelled as "Top Seller" when I walked by the Tarte's section. I find it to be too runny when compared to UD's subversion lash primer as a result it separates my eyelashes but adds absolutely zero volume and does not separate my eyelashes, as a matter of fact it clumps them together so it looks like I've got 5 visible lashes per eye. Also, I have not experienced curling of the lashes. i will be return this at my local Sephora but If you are willing to give this product a try, I would recommend a few coats, then wait 5-10 min for it to dry then coat it with mascara.

If you’re looking for a base for your mascara, I highly suggest a mascara primer. Doesn’t dry hard like that may before you’re able to put mascara on. My favorite is by Tarte.
