These Best-Selling Mascara Primers Are Better Than Lash Extensions
November is here, and suddenly 'tis the season of Sunday sessions, holiday parties, and (not unsurprisingly), eyelash extensions.

This, of course, is no a coincidence. When our schedules get packed, it seems we search even harder for time-saving tricks that can both grant us a sleep in and get us out the door faster. While lash extensions fit the bill (also, spray tans and keratin hair straightening), they do have downsides. A full set can be costly, and a proper upkeep schedule is not for low maintenance girls. What if I told you there was a secret online community of women obsessed with mascara primers so effective they deliver all the benefits of extensions, with none of the downsides? According to our pals at Rank & Style, not only do these mysterious lash primers exist, they're bonafide best sellers. Keen to discover the finest lash-boosters the internet has to offer?
