I brought this about a month ago and have been using it every day. As I perm my lashes every month, and wanted a product which conditioned my lashes so they didn't become brittle and start falling off (not that curling would do that to your lashes.)
I've never used an eyelash primer before and therefore can't compare it to anything, but I'd like to let you know my views.
The Mister Lash Booster is part of a new Mister range by Givenchy launched earlier in August 2010. This product comes in a black mascara shaped boxed. When you open it there is a little leaflet which tells you how to use it, or you can go to the Givenchy website and it will explain all to you.
Once you open it there is a brush applicator, it's not like a mascara brush. The applicator is soft and in the shape of round plastic little bristles. You do have to turn the bottom for the serum to come out of the little hole in the middle of the applicator brush. It does take a few turns for this to happen.
A clear serum (not sticky) will start to ooze out of the middle. You will have to apply from the inner corner of your lashes and work outwards. Start from the base of the lash and work upwards to the end and make sure you cover all of your lashes. The great thing about this applicator is that it will reach all your lashes, even the smaller ones in the inner and outer eye, it's perfect. You will have to repeat the process for the bottom lashes too.
Once I left it to dry, which it does in less than 30 seconds, my lashes appeared longer and fuller. I don't think it will make my lashes grow (but it does say to use for 2 months before results appear). However my eyelashes looked thicker and fuller with a glossy shine to them. It was great. If you don't like wearing mascara on a daily basis or hate it smudging etc then this is perfect for you as it gives you the same look as mascara but less clumpy and more fresh.
I have also worn mascara over it, and it makes my eyelashes look amazing. I do have very long and thick eyelashes. But this adds that extra bit to it, making them look so full and healthy, and the normal mascara I wear feels so much thicker on my eyes. It's great.
It does say in the leaflet provided to wear it over night, however I think that's a waste, as it makes your eyelashes look great. So I think just wearing it every day instead of a mascara does the job.
You can buy this online or in Debenhams for retail price of £24.00. you don't need to use a lot of the serum on application which leads me to believe that it will last.
It's a great find and I would highly recommend you try it for yourself.
