YouTuber Everyday Starlet spends a week testing a different last primer each day.

Putting on an extra coat and waiting for it to dry does take an extra minute, which could be a big deal if you’re short on time. On the other hand, if it makes a big difference in the way your lashes look, that extra few seconds could really be worth it.
