Estée Lauder Little Black primer

 Woweee is this a great product. It's become my latest product addiction. 
 My lashes have been looking pretty pants in the last few months (this is Stacey at Pixiwoo). Maybe it's due to my recent pregnancy or just natural shedding, either way my lashes look thin, straight and non existent. Sam and Nic have both been using Lilash lash treatment( with fab results but I haven't had a chance to test one out yet.
 Jealous of their wonderfully long, thick lashes I went on the hunt for something to compete with. I could also use Lilash but I'm so rubbish at remembering to put it on so it's pointless. I also want instant results, who has the patience to wait hey?!

I'm also not really one for lash primers so I had completely over looked this product.
 I came across it in my makeup bag and decided to give it a go.
  Unlike most lash primers this is black rather than white. The brush is tiny and curved to fit the lash line with ease.
 The brush shape allowed me to get right to the roots and almost pick out individual lashes. It's great for catching those teeny lashes on the inner corner of the eye.
 The black pigment coats the lashes but unlike lots of other primers it doesn't leave them feeling spiky or brittle. My lashes look silky and separated. 
 The genius brush really helps to lift the lashes and set them into position. You could totally get away with wearing this on it's own for a super natural day look.

 I then applied my mascara on top (the new Bobbi Brown Eye opening mascara). 
 My lashes looked transformed. Curled, separated and actually visible rather than being poker straight. I can feel my lashes fluttering against my upper lid.
 If you want to waterproof your mascara you can also apply a second coat on top. This second layer also helps prevent transfer and flaking.
 If you are someone who finds that their mascara or liner transfers easily around the eye it could be that you are using too much concealer or cream product around the eyes.

Check out the results below...

Primer applied to my right eye. My left eye is bare.

This is a great product for lash lovers. I wouldn't be without it now.

  4. I've been so underwhelmed by this product. It made my lashes so hard and dry, the top and bottom ones got tangled (used it with Chanel Le Volume). It didn't make my mascara any less smudgy, but did make it well nigh impossible to remove at night. Dior's Maxilash works a treat for me though!

  5. I really need to try mascara primer!

  6. I've only ever used the Lancome white primer, so would love to try a black one!

  7. That's a brilliant idea and the result looks great!
