Save vs Splurge: Mascara Primer

Happy Makeup Monday!

I was first introduced to mascara primer a couple years ago when I tried the Dior Mascara Primer! I loved that it extended the wear and enhanced the mascara itself however the Dior price tag was not for me! Once I was hooked on mascara primer I sought after a primer that was just as great in quality but more affordable, in comes the Tarte Opening Act Mascara Primer. Ive been using this product for the last year and absolutely loving it until I stumbled upon the L’Oreal Voluminous collection, including their Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara (my absolute favourite) and their Voluminous Mascara Primer.

At $7, the Voluminous primer is an absolute steal and the quality is exceptional! In comparison to the Tarte primer I find I get more length, volume and thickness with the Voluminous primer. I believe this difference is because of the bristles of the brush itself. As you can see below the bristles are longer, thicker and wider allowing your lashes an even and thick coat of primer that separates and extends each lash! Unfortunately I was unable to get some good photos comparing but I will share some in the future, with Clayton being away getting even 10 minutes to myself has been difficult!

Overall I would highly recommend you save and invest in the Voluminous Mascara Primer. It will be the best $7 you spend, as many women will attest that good mascara is a game changer, well consider your mascara game changed!!

Hope you have a great week!
