Black Lash Primer
Give your lashes the ultimate foundation for volume and nourishment. The black lash primer by blinc gives your mascara a true black finish while delivering a health-boosting base coat for your eyelashes.
Why prime your lashes? When you apply eyelash primer, you’re not just giving them a conditioning treatment to promote health. You’re setting your lashes up to get the most out of whatever mascara you apply. Our primer delivers thicker, longer, healthier lashes.
The blinc black eyelash primer helps you:
- Keep lashes separated. Avoid mascara clumping and enjoy lush, fanned-out lashes.
- Strengthen your lashes. Primer acts as a conditioning lash treatment to boost your eyelash integrity.
- Give your lashes length. Adding mascara to lengthen lashes helps you avoid over-layering your mascara.
- Thicken your lashes. Layer it on before your coats of mascara for a voluminous lash!
- Improve your mascara’s longevity. When primer holds your lash separation, length, and volume, you’ll enjoy your mascara longer during the day.
The vitamins, growth promotion peptides, and other nourishing ingredients in the black lash primer formula support long-lasting moisturization and conditioning. Beginning your lash routine with primer helps protect your lashes from breakage and environmental damage.
Before putting on your favorite mascara, simply apply a layer (or a few) of eyelash primer. Apply all the layers of primer you’d like within 60 seconds for the best results. Once the primer dries, apply your mascara as usual.
You can use whatever makeup remover you’d like to remove blinc’s black lash primer.
You can use blinc’s black lash primer to treat your lashes or to enhance their look.
If you’re using eyelash primer for the treatment benefits, apply one or two coats before going to bed or before wearing mascara. If you're using mascara primer for eyelash enhancement, follow the instructions below.
- Apply a single coat and let it set for 30 seconds.
- If you’d like more coats, keep applying until you’ve achieved your desired lash volume, length, and separation. Remember to let your primer set 30 seconds between each coat.
- Apply your mascara as usual. We recommend applying your mascara just before your primer is dry to avoid clumping.
You can take your eyelash primer off with any makeup remover.
Tips & Tricks
- Want to do without mascara? The black lash primer can be used alone for a natural lash look.
- Want the lash-fortifying and volumizing benefits on your eyebrows? You can brush the primer onto your brows.

Does blinc black lash primer contain parabens?
No. The black lash primer formula is paraben-free.
Does this primer contain gluten or grain of any kind?
Yes. The black lash primer formula does include gluten.
Is blinc’s black eyelash primer waterproof or water-resistant?
The black lash primer will have the same water-resistance as the mascara used over it. If you apply a water-resistant mascara, like the blinc mascaras, then the lash primer will perform the same as the mascara.
Does the blinc black lash primer work with any kind of mascara?
Yes. Although it’s been formulated to work best with blinc mascara, many users have commented how well it works with other mascara brands.
How do I remove blinc’s black lash primer?
You can use any makeup remover to take off this primer.
If you’re using a tubing mascara over the primer, you’ll want to remove the tubing mascara with water and light pressure before using the makeup remover for the primer.
Can I use the black lash primer with mascara that’s not black?
We don’t recommend it. Black primer pairs best with black mascara. The black primer may alter the shade of a brown or colored mascara. This is especially true the lighter the color you use.
However, our white lash primer was made specifically to retain the color of your non-black mascaras. Coating your lashes with white primer works as an excellent base for both mascaras and eyebrow mousse.
How do I apply lash primer?
You’ll apply the primer similarly to mascara. Starting at the base of the lash, sweep the brush up to the tips, wiggling the wand to separate lashes.
Unlike a traditional mascara, you’ll want to let the primer set for 30 seconds before adding another layer of either primer or mascara.
Do you put lash primer on first or last?
You’ll want to apply eyelash primer before your mascara. For the best results, make sure your lashes are clean and free of lotions, serums, or other topicals.
How do I avoid clumps when I’m using primer?
When you apply the primer, make sure your brush doesn’t have too much primer. Also, be sure to wiggle the wand to help separate the lashes. Dried-out and expired primer can also create clumps.
If you’re getting clumpy mascara after applying your primer, try applying your mascara after the primer sets for 30 seconds. Primer that’s too dry on the lashes can lead to clumping mascara layers.
Still getting clumps when coating your lashes with primer or mascara? Experiment with different setting times to see what gives you the best results.
Can I wear just the primer without any mascara?
Absolutely. In fact, only wearing the primer is a great way to enjoy enhanced lashes while giving your lashes a break from mascara. Many users like to solely wear primer like a black mascara for a natural lash look.
How long do I let eyelash primer dry? Do you let the primer dry before applying mascara?
You’ll want to let the primer rest for 30 seconds before applying mascara. This should allow the primer to set but not completely dry. A completely dry primer may result in clumping mascara.
We recommend starting with the 30-second setting time—but if you’re getting clumps in your mascara, experiment with different setting times to see what works.
Does lash primer help hold a curl?
Yes, it does. The primer helps condition lashes and prevent them from becoming brittle. This allows a lash curler or your mascara to set the curl you’d like.
For the best-held curl, we recommend our tubing mascara, which sets around each individual lash, holding its shape like a cast.
Can you leave eyelash primer on overnight?
Yes. Primer nourishes and conditions your lashes, making it an excellent overnight lash treatment.
