Unlike other lash primers that are usually white, the new Estée Lauder's Little Black Dress primer is black and.. water-resistant! You can use it on its own or under your favorite mascara, and you can even use it as a topcoat to help reduce smudging!

On its own, the Little Black Primer gives a very natural look. It enhances the lashes, they are darker and slightly longer without any clumps. You will love it if you don't wear a lot of makeup and prefer a natural effect!
It doesn't feel crunchy or stiff, my lashes are still soft. It doesn't flake or smudge either, and it's really waterproof! You will need a good eye makeup remover though because it doesn't come off easily.
I love to use it as a primer because it's waterproof and hold the curl much better! I usually only use waterproof mascaras because other mascaras contain too much water and are too heavy for my lashes. This primer allows me to use it with any mascara even if it's not waterproof! It helps lashes hold their shape and provides extra volume. If you are looking for a primer that will give you a lot of length and volume though, this isn't it.
The Estée Lauder Little Black Primer retail for $27 CAD for 6ml.
