With short and sparse lashes, anything that can make them look a little more longer and fuller is better than nothing. Enter lash primers. I have used lash primers but I have also used mascaras that simply provided length as a base. Both ways work well but I love trying out new primers, especially ones that come in a different shade other than black. Volumizing mascaras can also do the trick. By giving the lashes volume, it gives it that illusion that your lashes are longer and in turn, looks fuller.
Morphe The Big Prime Lash Primer and Make It Big Volumizing Mascara are two products that promises to lift, boost, and amplify your lashes.
The Big Prime Lash Primer
Infused with ingredients known to condition lashes for mascara application, the unique blue shade preps lashes for ultimate volume and amplifies the effects and colour intensity of your mascara.
How to Use:
- Coat the top side and bottom side of upper lashes, then let it set before applying mascara.
The mascara primer comes in a blue shade and the wand looks like your standard mascara spoolie wand. In terms of how well the product performed, I have short lashes and the Big Prime Lash Primer does a great job at lengthening each lash even with just one coat. The blue is very vibrant looking and although it’s a mascara primer, if you’re bold enough to wear blue mascara, then just leave it as is, otherwise definitely follow-up with a black mascara to cover the blue while really lengthening the lashes.
Make It Big Volumizing Mascara
This longwearing mascara makes a big statement giving you large and in charge lashes that won’t flake out. The innovative curvaceous wand coats even the smallest lashes, it is safe for contact lens wearers and is Ophthalmologist tested
Get the most out of the Make It Big Volumizing Mascara as easy as 1, 2, 3:
- The innovative wand is designed and coated for pump-free use. No need to pump before application (product will build up).
- Make sure to wipe off excess product on a tissue to avoid any buildup on the tip and tube.
- For fully coated, clump-free lashes, comb through from root to tip with a back-and-forth motion.
This Make It Big Volumizing Mascara isn’t my favourite. The wand is shaped in a way that I find odd to apply to my lashes, I know it stated it coats even the smallest lashes but personally, I don’t quite see any benefits for it to be shaped in such a way.
Although it did make my lashes more bold-looking, lengthen and volumized, it also clumped my lashes together. I had followed the instructions and wiped off all excess product on a tissue but my lashes still ended looking clumpy – it looked as if I applied multiple coats when I didn’t. The formulation also causes a bit of flaking.
Overall, the Make It Big Volumizing Mascara is a no-go for me but the Big Prime Lash Primer is definitely a product I will continue to use and follow up with a different mascara that doesn’t leave my lashes looking like I purposely apply too much mascara.
