Estee Lauder Little Black Primer
Product Caused Eyes to Sting and Become Sore
When I applied the product, within a few minutes, my eyes began to sting so I immediately removed the product. Once product was removed, the stinging stopped but my eyes felt sore and tender. However, I recognise that not everybody would react in this way. This is the first time my eyes have reacted to any make-up product in this way. If my eyes had not reacted, I would rate the product a lot higher because I was impressed with the application, and the way it made my eyes look.
The tube itself is simply black which matches the name of the product. The wand is curved so as to follow the natural curve in the shape of the eye. This ensures that the lashes appear more lifted.
When applying alone, the lashes appear extended and slightly darker. There were no bumps or lumps caused by the product. Also, the wand helped to separate the lashes, causing my eyes to appear larger than they are. When applying as a primer so that it is a layer under the actual mascara, my lashes appeared longer and much more volumised. This was noticed with the bottom lashes in particular because my bottom lashes are very sparse.
Again, I must emphasise that had the product not reacted with my eyes, I would rate it a lot higher and would continue to use it. Not everybody would react in the same way. It's just a matter of being careful and taking action immediately if you feel that something isn't right.

This product sets my usual mascara perfectly. No more smudging onto my eyelids midday! Yay!
Great primer to use before mascara aswell. Lashes definitely look longer once applied.

Little Black Primer
Very good product.You can use it in 3 ways. TINT, AMPLIFY and SET.
I have dark lashes that are already quite long so the tint didn't work for me however I'm sure it would work on fairer eyelashes.
Amplifying my lashes worked wonders! As I stated my lashes are quite dark and long so I only use mascara to frame my eyes more for a day look. However using it as the primer and them applying mascara made the mascara seem so much thicker and longer! Gave my eyes a really dramatic look and really looked lovely but more for a night out than a day look.
I have not yet used the 'set' method but I don't doubt for a second that it'll be amazing.
Really good product overall. Certainly getting your moneys worth.
