I can admit my craving for enhanced lashes is a bit greedy. I have pretty long lashes with excellent volume, but that is not going to stop me from trying out a product or two that promises healthier lashes. I recently got the opportunity to try GrandeLASH MD by Grande Naturals. GrandeLASH released a few new products during their spring and summer 2015 launch, and I will introduce you to three today.
This product is an award winning eyelash conditioner created with a proprietary blend of vitamins, peptides and amino acids, plus conditioning ingredients. This product promises to deliver more youthful, healthy and dramatic lashes within 4-6 weeks.
Key ingredients include hyaluronic acid, peptides, pantethine and hydrolyzed glycoasaminoglycans. Customer studies show a 68% increase in lash density within 4-6 weeks.
GrandeLASH MD has a liquid like texture with no smell. It is not greasy and leaves no residue. Application was very simple, you apply like you would a liquid eyeliner, with a single stroke at the base of the upper lash line before bedtime. One dip is enough for both upper and lower lashes on one eye. Please avoid applying excess liquid to the lash area or applying too close to the edge of the eyelid.
Not every lash primer has the power to prime and condition the lashes at the same time, but this primer does. GrandePRIMER Lash Boosting Pre-Mascara Lengthener & Thickener is infused with nutrient-rich fibers to boost your natural lashes while lengthening and thickening. It contains a special ingredient, Sympeptide 226EL to condition lashes and prevent breakage.
Overall this primer was simple enough to use, however, the time between primer application and mascara application has to be very quick. I applied the primer and took a photo and by the time I was ready to apply the mascara, the primer was dry and made it very hard to apply the mascara. I did not find this primer to be buildable due to the fast dry time.

Need a lift? This mascara promises to fortify lashes, providing length and thickness for naturally beautiful eyelashes.
GrandeMASCARA was difficult to apply, because of the fast drying primer but overall gave my lashes beautiful volume and length. Too bad it didn’t cover up all the primer! I was left with little white patches in my lashes that could not be covered.
