Review: Lancome CILS BOOSTER XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base

Hello Gorgeous!

I was recently introduced to a beauty product I never thought I would buy let alone use and now I don’t want to live without it! It is a lash primer. Specifically, it is Lancôme CILS BOOSTER XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base that I received as a free gift from Sephora as my Beauty Insider free deluxe sample. This little tube is AMAZING! The main reason why I never considered a mascara base or primer before is because my lashes are pretty healthy and very long on their own, but this product made a HUGE difference. First, it gently separates each lash, coating them with a thin layer of primer, prepping each lash for mascara. Once I applied my mascara, I instantly noticed it was easier to apply as it just glided on without clumping. The final result: my lashes were longer, fuller, and less clumped together. I also noticed it was much easier to curl my lashes and the curl lasted much longer. Throughout the day, my mascara and lashes stayed in place and looked flawless (they didn’t flake at all). And lastly, the primer seemed to protect and condition my lashes as they seem healthier than ever before when removing and reapplying my mascara. Lancôme states in their description that “This innovative mascara base maximizes the result of any Lancôme mascara”. And while this is true, it also maximizes the result of any mascara. I used my favorite inexpensive mascara and achieved perfect results (CLICK HERE to read my review on my favorite inexpensive mascara). I cannot express how much I adore this product. Just like a face primer, this mascara primer provides a perfect application and the results are flawless. This product is definitely worth the extra step in your beauty routine.

Quick Tip: I found that applying the primer and following it immediately with my mascara works best.

Think of it as anti-aging for your lashes!
