Even if you have an undying allegiance to a certain mascara — one that seemingly knows every curvature of your lashes inside and out — it can at times betray you. Maybe it’s clumping too much, it isn’t coating your lashes uniformly, or won’t stay put.
That’s when you reach for Dior Diorshow Maximizer 3D Triple Volume Plumping Lash Primer.
When applied prior to mascara, the primer fills in every nook and cranny in each lash, effectively laying down a smooth foundation for mascara to glide seamlessly over. By starting off with an application of the eyelash primer, you set the stage for amplified lashes. But that’s not really why we like it.
What you really need to know is that the primer contains a serum that moisturizes and conditions natural lashes, giving them more flexibility, so that they won’t break as easily. The benefits of the oil are cumulative, so regular use makes lashes healthier and more receptive to mascara.
Though the product doesn’t purport to make your eyelashes grow, the primer conditions and strengthens your lashes, which means the next time you rub your eyes or remove your makeup, your eye-framing fringe has a better chance of remaining intact.
