My Opinion/Review: I haven’t really seen this product hyped or anything, but I saw a video from YouTube Guru Eily311 using this to make beautiful dramatic lashes with out false lashes.
This video made me want to go out and buy and try it out.
Appearance / Packaging?
I absolutely adore the packaging! It’s a metallic lavender with purple lettering and silver-ish designs (containing: decorative swirls, mushrooms, and other leafy type designs).
Wand?
I like the bristle on this wand; it coats the product nicely without making it clump. The thing I don't like is that the wand is a little too big, if it was half the size I find it would be perfect to apply from root to tip and get the lower lashes nicely. Gives me an idea of cutting in half now 8)
Flaking or Clumping?
The formula of this product is very moisturizing; it’s like putting lotion on my eyelashes lol. Whatever the formula is, it makes this eyelash primer potion have no flaking what so ever, but when it comes down to clumping this will, if applied to much. As for clumping or flaking is non-existent.
Staying Power?
It last quite long and makes whatever mascara you apply after hold on longer then it would normally does on its own.
Other?
If your like me you will find whatever you put on your lashes after curling them they will pretty much droop back down, but this eyelash primer does a pretty good job of keeping the curl intact.
This lash primer helps gives volume and length, which I so desperately need.
Because the eyelash primer potion is white, it's nice as a base color for colored mascaras. It will make the color much more vibrant, making it stand out more.
Bottom Line …
I really don't think this product is a necessity, especially for its price being $20.00 USD. I can't really say I recommend it, but if this product strikes your fancy, then get it if you don't mind the price.

Color Description & Swatch: The color is white, so wearing it alone is a no go.

Overall score: ★★★★☆

My 1st Giveaway Win!
I won Venus In Virgo’s TokiDoki Giveaway! I really didn’t think I would win, because I hardly win anything (story of my life). But I just wanted to show off this nail file set I got from her!

She had a little note with it; I love your handwriting Maria!

I love that this set comes with a case to store your nail file in.

I really need another nail file to carry around, the one I had was falling apart and it was not in the best working condition any more lol. If there’s any tip I can give you with nails, is to always carry a nail file around with you. You will never know when your a nail will break, leaving your nails jagged, like weapon, catching on everything (not fun!).

If you’re interested in getting this particular set, I believe it’s no longer available for purchase. However I think Tokidoki will be releasing more nail file sets like this in the holiday season (but don’t quote me on that).
For now Tokidoki does have a nail file called ‘sandy nail file’ where you can get it at Sephora or Sephora.com (link here).
It retails for $5.00 USD, if you like a review on the Tokidoki nail files, there is a great one from Venus In Virgo (Link here).

So I wanted to say a special thank you to Maria (Venus In Virgo) for holding this giveaway!
If any of you are not following her, you should be. She has amazing reviews of pretty much everything beauty related under the sun an much more! Here blog here ---> Venus In Virgo
