I know you all love a good dupe so here it is.
A while ago I splurged on the It Cosmetics Tightline Full Lash Length Black Mascara Primer because I really wanted to try out a product that would get as close to my lash line as possible.
More recently I picked up the Skinny Mascara from NYX Cosmetics, and much to my surprise it was almost identical to the It Cosmetics Tightline so I pulled it out to compare.
Even though NYX says it’s a mascara, it really doesn’t give you that full lash look so it can easily be used as a lash primer.
It Cosmetics Tightline retails for $24 and The Skinny Mascara retails for $6.99. That’s a pretty big difference for two products that give the same results.
Each wand is almost identical. They are very thin which makes getting close to the lash line very easy. Both are on the dry side though, that is why I use the NYX mascara as a primer as well, and follow with one of my favorite volumizing mascara’s.
If you really want to save money I would honestly just purchase the NYX Skinny Mascara and use that as a primer.
I hope this review helped.
Thanks for reading!
