Many people do not understand the need for eyelash primer. I have to admit at one point I was one of those people. However I looked up the top 10 best eyelash primer 2012 reviews for primers and found some wonderful information. However, so many of the reviews were confusing and lacked real substance. After reading I still did not get a great feel for the products.

I began a mission to test primers until I figured out what they did and what worked best for me. After testing many of the products I have found my top 10. Each person is a bit different so results may vary, but listed below are the best primers and what they did for my eye lashes. 

Blinc Lash Primer

If your favorite mascara can sometimes smudge, or leave your lashes looking spindly this primer should solve your problem. Suddenly your lashes look full and long without causing eye irritation. As an added bonus your natural lashes will become healthier and softer.

Eyelash Primer Potion

No mascara flakes or running products when you use this primer. If you have oily skin or eye lids it is possible to achieve a matte look for more than 2 hours without touch up. That alone is worth having this product as a make-up staple.

Lancome Cils Booster XL Super Enhancing Mascara Base Primer

This product works ok with all mascaras, however, for best results pair it up with Loancome Mascara. With this combination the primer goes on smoothly, and evens your lashes with a conditioning. The Vitamin E adds extra length and thickness to your natural lash as well.

Layer Lash Primer

Layer Lash is so good even the cheapest mascara will appear to give you false lash look. Do be careful not to apply too much primer or you will get clumps. With a product this good less is more. Over time this product will not add length to your natural lash but will make them thick and give the appearance of lashes three times as strong and brilliant than prior to using the primer.

e.l.f. Studio Mascara Primer

Your lashes will look thicker, longer, and stronger with steady usage. The primer has vitamin B5, soy protein, as well as hydrolyzed wheat to help condition your lashes and enhance your mascara.

L'Oreal Paris Lash Boosting Technology, Concentrated Lash Boosting Serum

Contact users or people with sensitive eyes will find this primer easy to use, and easy on the eyes. There is no real smell to the product and this help to reduce the watering of eyes, as well as burring some other primers will momentarily give.

L'Oreal Paris Double Extend Beauty Tubes

With regular use your lashes will get much larger and healthier. They will look so great after time you won’t even need mascara at all! Don’t give up on the primer looking for instant results. However, with daily use you should notice longer fuller lashes within a couple weeks. Within a few months they will look amazing.


Don’t be intimidate by multiple tubes and brushes. They are there for a reason! This combo pack is two for one deal. First apply the primer, let dry, and then add on the second tube of mascara. Make sure your primer is completely dry before the mascara or you will run the risk of clumping lashes.

gloMinerals gloLash Thickener & Conditioner

This primer is perfectly acceptable for everyday use, and will not make your lashes look better, not fake. Your lashes will be fuller and thicker all day long. The product delivers everything it promises.

L'Oreal Paris Lash Boosting Technology, 24-Hour Lash Boosting Power System Kit

This is the top of the line L’Oreal product. The cost is an effect of this fact. It is a bit more expensive than other primers but it does come with mascara as well. Your lashes will look and feel stronger than before and the product is easy on your eyes. However, this will not get you a huge lash look. If you want to just bump up your lash without appearing to have false lashes this is the product for you.
