How to Select the Best Mascara from Lancôme for Your Lash Look

Not all mascaras are created equal, but for the most part we all dream of having longer lashes and loads of volume. Different mascaras give different effects and create different lash looks to compliment your makeup. Regardless of if you want to create the look of longer lashes, lifted lashes with a full and fluttery effect or bold thick and volumized lashes Lancôme has a mascara for you.

The Ideal Base for Every Lash Look

Long and bold lashes don’t just start with mascara. Just as you may prime your skin for foundation or your eyelids for eyeshadow, you can also prime your eyelashes. So the next time you apply mascara try using an eyelash primer which can help to boost your lashes and provide the perfect base for your go-to mascara. Some of the benefits include: intensifying the color of your mascara and adding length and volume to short lashes.

For the ultimate lash prep try Cils Booster XL a lash-conditioner and mascara primer all in one. Just one coat primes lashes with a smooth surface of mascara and the white toned hue provides an opaque base to intensify the rich black pigment of your chosen mascara. Infused with micro-fibers to create a false lash look plus Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E lashes appear longer and fuller and its conditioning effects improve lash thickness and curl over time (so you can enjoy longer lashes with and without mascara)
