Questions and Answers

Worked OK for me

This primer helps to prepare my lashes for mascara. I could see more definition (separation) and length. It was just slightly clumpy, but I would probably purchase again if I found the larger size at a lower price.

Doesn't keep my lashes curled

I have pin straight eyelashes so I always curl them. Since I'm switching all of my products to cruelty free products, I thought I would give opening act a try. My old primer was amazing at keeping my lashes lifted and curled. I've been using opening act for a couple of week with the same results — sad, droopy eyelashes. Once I put the primer on my freshly curled lashes, they start falling down. They do lengthen, which is nice but cannot hold a curl on my stubborn lashes.

It's a little "heavy"

It is a good primer and does make your lashes longer, but it's "heavy". I have straight lashes and I use a eyelash curler. This primer is wet and heavy, it doesn't hold the curl, but my lashes are longer.

Enjoy this make up product

I love this primer, I have used the urban decay perversion primer and mascara and this used with the Tarte Big Ego mascara is a similar duo. I would buy this product again. It clearly enhances the length and smoothness of your eye lashes.

I stopped using a eyelash curler months ago because I was seeing after applying any lash primer with any mascara was not giving me volume, length in my lashes. My lashes using this product with my mascara which is from Hourglass is the perfect combination for me, I have volume, length !

  • Jenn


It didn't do anything special. Just seemed like I was wearing mascara regularly. Would not buy again.

  • anna

never knew i needed a lash primer until i used this!

i used to think lash primer was pointless, but this proved me wrong! it makes mascara so much easier to apply and makes you lashes looks nice, defined, and separated. you need this to make you lashes look extra beautiful!

  • Katie
