There's a slew of double-ended mascaras out on the market right now with a primer or conditioner on one end and mascara on the other. The idea is just like with foundation primer: providing a smooth, supple surface for your foundation to stick to, it protects and softens eyelashes. Lorac's Special Effects Conditioning, Defining, & Lengthening Mascara ($22) is one of the best out there, IOHO, though we dearly wish it came in waterproof. The conditioning primer contains natural oils & plant extracts, and the mascara is a rich carbon black guaranteed not to clump or flake. If you're craving flexible, soft, defined & lengthened lashes, this is for you.
