        Have used this product for several years and have loved it. I think this is another case of trying to improve something but you really didn't. I've never had any problem with application of this product,but now, the primer clumps at the base of the wand so you have all this waste and excess that you can't use and it makes application difficult. Part of the reason why I stopped using Mac mascara was because of application. Your wands clump the product up so its impossible to apply it. Plus I think the applicator itself is a bit smaller than its predecessor. So disappointed.

        So so

        By 

        from WA

        Comments about MAC False Lashes Maximizer Primer:

        Like some of the other reviewers, I LOVED the Prep and Prime lash. I have a problem of having deepest eyes and without primer my mascara transfers to under my eyes/upper cheeks. The primer prevented that AND made my lashes look amazing! I have tried the false lashes maximizer and it's very so so. It helps my major problem of mascara transfer, but the wand is horrible, it's difficult to apply and it does not add as much volume as the Prep and Prime. I am definitely going to try other products before re-purchasing this.

        Nothing compared to the original

        By 

        from Vancouver

        Comments about MAC False Lashes Maximizer Primer:

        The original Prep + Prime was amazing!! This, however, is nothing comparable. Like one review mentioned, this brush is useless. I also keep the brush from the original product. This helped a bit but the new product consistency is too thin; it doesn't coat the lashes as well. I no longer get asked if I have lash extensions while wearing this new formula.

        Bring back the original Prep + Prime Lash!!

        Comments about MAC False Lashes Maximizer Primer:

        I have light colored, thin lashes and I always use a primer before mascara to help give them an extra boost. I've tried many other brands and this one from MAC does not disappoint. Great quality and price point. I will purchase again.

        The new brush is worthles

        By 

        from USA

        Comments about MAC False Lashes Maximizer Primer:

        The new brush is worthless - clumps up on brush and top of brush. Luckily I saved the brush from the previous product. Overall the product works well.

        Disappointed

        By 

        from Ottawa

        Comments about MAC False Lashes Maximizer Primer:

        I was really disappointed in the presentation of this product online. I thought it was a regular black mascara like other "false lashes" mascara products and so I ordered it online. When it arrived I realized that it was white and only for fake eyelashes. I then proceeded to try and return it to a retail store and retail stores DO NOT accept exchanges or returns from online orders. Very disappointed in MAC. I've been a life time member and this might be the last product I buy....

        2 1/2 stars?

        By 

        from Anchorage, AK, USA

        Comments about MAC False Lashes Maximizer Primer:

        I would definitely rate this closer to a 2 than 3. The formula is "meh" at best. The wand by far is the worst of any primers I've tried to date. Unfortunately I have had to try too many others because I'm still searching for a prep + prime lash replacement. This formula clumps and dries fairly slow. Not sure if that is due to the wand giving too much from mid to the lower end; however, it gives too little product at the tip of the wand. I still get "smudging" with this formula, and by the end of a long day I'm likely to have raccoon eyes if I'm not wiping or refreshing in that area throughout the day. The prep + prime lash allowed for some teariness without coming off. The maximizer does quite the opposite. PLEASE PLEASE bring back prep + prime lash!!!

        Flakes off!!

        By 

        from Mesa, AZ

        Comments about MAC False Lashes Maximizer Primer:

        While it made my lashes look nice, after only a few hours of wearing it starts to flake off and I end up with black spots under and in my eyes. I use mac mascara too, so I would think it would compliment well... I was super disappointed when I heard they got rid of prep and prime for lashes. I used to recommend it to friends all the time, but I have already told many how awful this new product is! Super disappointed MAC....

        Acceptable replacement for the Prep + Prime

        By 

        from Birmingham, AL, USA

        Comments about MAC False Lashes Maximizer Primer:

        I too was disappointed that the Prep + Prime was discontinued. I agree with other reviewers that too much product comes out on the wand and I end up having to scrape off the excess at the tube opening. Other than that, in my experience I have had less eyelash clumping that I did with the Prep + Prime. I think that it dries clearer as well.

        does the job, kind of a mess on the wand

        By 

        from Indianapolis, IN, USA

        Comments about MAC False Lashes Maximizer Primer:

        bottom line: the product works. that is the good news. not so good news: the product is a bit of a mess on the wand, cannot figure out how to keep that from happening. but the actual priming does work.
