NYX Big & Loud Lash Primer | Review

Hello again,

Seeing as I’d run out of my Clinique Lash Building Primer, I thought I’d try a new one. I much prefer trying out new products than buying the same ones over and over again. My trust Clinique primer cost me £14 whereas my new NYX Big & Loud Lash Primer was just £5.50 so as you can imagine I was hoping that the NYX one would become my new favourite…

First and foremost, if you don’t use an eyelash primer then you must. I find that it’s a product that nobody else thinks about. People tend to forget that eyelash primers exist. Personally, I couldn’t imagine putting mascara on without a primer. It simply wouldn’t feel right.


When I first used this primer I was a little confused. My Clinique one always coated my lashes with a thick layer of product. When I first used my NYX primer, it applied so easily that I barely noticed any product on my eyelashes. You can actually barely see it when I’ve put it on. I’m going to be honest, at this point I didn’t expect the primer to work at all because it was so different to ones I’ve used in the past.

I found that my mascara was so much easier to apply than it was with my Clinique primer. This stopped my eyelashes from going clumpy and looking too thick. This primer makes my eyelashes look a lot more natural and feminine than my previous one did.


Once I’d applied the primer on my first eye, I let it try for a few seconds before putting my mascara on. I was actually really shocked that the primer made a difference to the application of my mascara at all.

I’ve also noticed that my mascara is a lot more long lasting when I use this primer. I used to find that bits of my mascara would flake off gradually throughout the day. Now, it stays put right up until the moment I want to take it off at night.

It’s interesting how I thought I’d hate this primer and now I couldn’t imagine doing my makeup without it. As you can probably already tell, I highly recommend this product…

As always, thank you for reading.

Let me know what your favourite eyelash primer is, I’m sure it won’t be long before this one runs out…

  1. i have never tried this primer but i am excited to do so after reading this review ! i was using the urban decay one .

  2. I’ve honestly never thought about using a lash primer. I’m currently using Better than Sex mascara by Too Faced and I think it has a primer in it? But I’m almost out and don’t really want to spend $30 on a new one, so I think I’ll try this lash primer!

  3. I use the benefit lash primer and as much as I love it I don’t think I could cough up £18 a time and I’ve heard such great things about NYX products! I definitely need to check this out xx

  4. I absolutely hate mascara flaking so I HAVE to try this. I’ve never even heard of a mascara primer but it makes sense that it you use primer for your face, your eyelids and your lips why not for your lashes?

  5. I love the clinique primer but I hate buying it because of the price so this is awesome! I am so happy you wrote about it! I have only ever tried NYX lip products before, so I am definitely picking this up!

  6. You are so right! I use primer for pretty much every makeup that I put on my face but I tend to forget my lashes. I must give this product from NYX a try. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I love finding products that are less expensive that work just as well! I will have to try this primer. I’ve never tried it, but I’ve been happy with the NYX products that I have tried. Their liquid eyeliner is very good!

  8. Ooh! This looks like something I need to try & I love that it is a bargain. Thank you so much for sharing this, off to check it out right now!!

  9. Wow I didn’t realize how much I didn’t know about make up! I didn’t know you were supposed to have a primer for mascara. What does it do exactly?

  10. I have totally been on the hunt for a better mascara – I cant seem to find one that doesn’t bleed by the end of the day.

  11. I think I want to try out this NYX one after reading your thoughts about it. I never use primer – just that one extra step I dont feel like completing! haha – but… if it works better with this I just might change my mind!

  12. I’ve never heard of this but then again I don’t use makeup haha. I know exactly who to share this with!

  13. I haven’t tried their primer, but I love Nyx products. When I run out of my benefit primer I will give this one a try!

  14. I’ve never given any thought to lash primers before! I don’t have any issues with the staying power of my mascara in particular but it’s nice to know this kind of product is out there.
