Cils Booster XL Mascara Primer
Rated 5 out of 5 by HasiT from Works!! I have medium length lashes, not very full. The Cils Booster XL glides on smoothly, already lengthening my lashes. And then when I apply the mascara, oh wow, long lashes I wasn't born with! And it stays good and clean all day, no clumping. Sometimes I used to have dark smudges by the end of the day, but now it doesn't happen unless I get teary eyed. I gave a tube to a friend and she is still singing its praises. Thank you Lancome, what a great product. Note: Don't let the Cil Booster XL dry before you put on your mascara, or it will clump. Do one eye at a time. I got this tip from Lancome online support. Unfortunately the product didn't come with instructions. :- /

Rated 5 out of 5 by hotlipshooverpusher from This stuff is GREAT! I almost never take the time to write reviews about products, but this product works so well that I must spread the word to all the ladies out there who solemnly believed they were destined to have stubby lashes forever. NOT. As a subtle hint, my friend gave this to me as a gift. She said that mascara (especially the cheap kind) tends to dry our your lashes and that this product when used before applying mascara, would protect my (sparse) lashes and nourish them. She was right. It's been about a month so far and I already notice an astonishing improvement. Cils Booster XL will be a staple in my makeup case from now on. I highly recommend this!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by justd from Does what I need it to do. I love this product. I have always had a very physical job that because I sweat very easily, I only wore makeup when I went out. I also don't have very long eyelashes and have always admired lash extensions and false eyelashes. With this product I not only have very long eyelashes but it also does not allow the mascara to end up all over my face, but my mascara is exactly the same at night when removing it as when I applied it in the morning. I also am not taking the risk with glue being applied around my eyes, the constant up-keep of false or extensions, or the expense of these other alternatives. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JanelleT from Makes your lashes crunchy This accidentally came with my order so I didn't purchase this product. I didn't like this at all. I hate any mascara or primer that make my lashes hard and crunchy. This did just that. It does make my lashes look bigger but it also clumps then together. After it dries it makes my lashes feel like tiny needles poking out of my face. Nope not for me. I only recommend this if you don't mind that crunchy lash feeling because it does work. Also, I didn't use this with a Lancome mascara. I used a Dior one. Maybe it would be better paired with a Lancome product? Since I don't intend on stitching mascaras this was not for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mimr from Great with my oily skin I wear waterproof Lancome mascaras on my top lashes only, but they always smudge by late afternoon because my eyelids are oily, even without eye cream. I'm 42, and my oily skin hasn't dried up yet, so I thought I'd have this mascara problem for life. Then I tried a sample of Cils Booster XL, and my mascara stayed put until late evening! I couldn't believe it, so I decided to go 2 days without the base to see if it was the Hypnose Drama I was also using for the first time. It flaked and smudged on my oily skin just like the Definicils does. I've been using this base ever since, and I swear by it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Equestrianlady4 from A Fan of Definicils for Many Years! I have been a big fan of Definicils mascara for many years. More than I can remember! I would not be without it for anything. That being said, when the Cils Booster XL, primer for mascara, came out I could literally not believe my eyes! The primer makes the mascara go on quickly, evenly and without any fuss at all. It also extends the life of my Definicils to almost twice as long as previously because you don't have to use as much. With the primer in place the slightest touch of Definicils goes a long way. Hooray for Lancome and the best products on the make up market. They are worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by downtothree from Mascara alone? Nope Cils Booster I love love lover this mascara primer, booster, lash extender. Cils booster is a must. I have short lashes. A couple coats of Cils Booster underneath my mascara is getting me more complements. Wow! I love your mascara is one of my favorites. It's not the mascara alone that give me the most gorgeous lashes, it is without a doubt the Cils Booster. Forgive me if I overstate the obvious, but the product works best if you let it dry between coats of Cils Booster as well as before mascara application. I love this product. I have ordered it multiple times. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by KatherineBBBUN from Excellent mascara primer!!!! I am very happy that I tried Lancome Cils Booster XL because it makes your lashes stay up the whole day. The product has a medium sized, triangular shaped brush which separates the lashes well and holds enough product to fully coat your lashes with one application. You can add a second coat of the Booster if you want thicker lashes. If you want longer lashes, apply a second coat of the Booster to your lashes from the middle of the lashes to the tip. I did not have any problems with clumping. I did not need to use a lash comb to separate my lashes. The true greatness of this product comes when you apply your mascara. I tried this product with a thickening mascara - my lashes looked fuller and fringier. I tried this product with a lengthening mascara and my lashes extended to where the tips almost touched my eyebrows. There were no problems with coverage and my lashes looked dark and defined. The Booster did not fade out the color of the mascara. I had no difficulty removing the product with my usual eye makeup remover which is for removing waterproof makeup. I do not know how it will remove with other types of products.
