I am 65 and have been using another brand of mascara for a couple of decades, and they featured a primer on one side and mascara on the other side. I have LOVED this mascara because of the primer, which brought out the tiniest lashes, even the fine, thinning ones as I got older. I even recommended this other brand to my mother!! However, in the last couple of years, the actual mascara began to smudge on my lids, so I was purchasing this only for the primer and buying another mascara. And then, at the end of 2012, I found that this product had been discontinued! Since then, I have tried many other primers to use with the mascara only to face messy failure each morning. Memory reminded me of Origins Underwear for Eyes. When I checked, I was thrilled to see that Origins still DOES have Underwear, so I ordered this primer and began using it as soon as it arrived! I absolutely LOVE it! It is even softer on the lashes than what I had been using! And since then, I have ordered Fringe Benefits Mascara in Brown to replace the waterproof, smudgeproof mascara I had been using, and am the happiest camper around! For the first time in my life, my lashes do not look clumpy and spidery and are NOT stiff! The Underwear is the perfect primer for anyone with fine lashes that "fall" as soon as you put mascara on or whose lashes are not quite as long or are a bit more sparse than you would like!!! THANK YOU, ORIGINS - AGAIN!!! PLEASE do NOT discontinue this product!!! And even though it may SEEM pricey, considering how long it lasts, it is LESS expensive than drugstore brands.

The older I get the less make-up I wear, but I won't go out without the basics. This is a new basic for me. I absolutely love this product. Want long, natural-looking lush lashes without the over-done look that three coats of mascara gives you? Then stop looking. This is your product.
Underwear for Lashes gives you amazing length and fullness with just one coat of your favorite mascara (my favorite is GinZing!). Basically, it's like a coat of mascara sans the color so you don't get the build-up when color is applied. The brush is full so it separates the lashes during application for optimum coverage.
For best results, I find that you should wait until the product dries before applying your mascara. You know when it's dry as you'll no longer be able to see it on your lashes. So it's the first thing I put on in the morning and by the time my coffee is ready my lashes are dry and on to the next step I go.
While I have used it in conjunction with other major brands of mascara, I now use Origins GinZing mascara. I've played golf, been got caught in the rain, shed a tear and yet it still stays in place but comes off easily with soap and water. And I never end up with black flakes or creases around my eyes. Unfortunately, I can't say the same when used in conjunction with Origins Full Story mascara. But that's a result of the Full Story product.
Now, if they only made this formula WITH color it would be a wonderful mascara!

I must note that I have only used this for two days. Originally, I purchased this product to see if it would help my mascara from "running/falling off" and making black circles under my eyes. So far it is working much better than just plain mascara - I have long lashes so any mascara falls and makes black circles. Yesterday, I wore it on both eyes and I was ecstatic to find that I didn't have to wipe or reapply foundation under my eyes At the end of the day, it actually looked like I was still wearing mascara! Today, I applied it on one eye and left the other with just plain mascara. WOW. There is a HUGE difference! I sent a picture of the difference to friends and my favorite response was, "Wow, your mascara is on point!" I am completely satisfied with the results of how it keeps my mascara on all day long, and even more satisfied that it makes my lashes pop even more! I use this and then follow up with the GinZing mascara! Others noted that it makes your eyelashes clump. I haven't really had this issue, but after I applied it I took the end of my tweezers and just separated the lashes I thought might look clumped or stuck together when I applied mascara. I wish we were allowed to upload photos because you can really see a huge difference in the primed eye vs. the unprimed eye!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by DiInBoise Not for me
I had high hopes for this product and it failed. Even with wiping the excess off the wand before applying it went on gloppy and clumped my lashes. Took several minutes to dry and when I applied mascara didn't notice any difference.
I'll stick with my eyelash curler.
Overall very disappointed. Returned item.
