This is the only primer that holds mascara in place for me. I\’ve tried Dior and Benefit and … no. Frickin raccoon over here on those. The other thing I love about this formula is that if you want more dramatic lashes you can let the primer dry before applying mascara but you can also just apply the mascara to the wet primer lashes and it doesn\’t compromise the formula at all. I do that for work days so it\’s more understated. Love it!
