I started using Latisse (via a free sample from my family doctor) last June and my eyelashes gotten so much darker and longer than I could have ever imagined. As an extra bonus my eyebrows have started filling in as well. My lashes are ‘over the top’ long and I get major comments on how long they are.
For those unfamiliar with Latisse, it is a prescription product that was originally designed to treatcataract patients. The doctors started noticing the patients were growing long and luscious lashes with continued use. The pharmaceutical company remanufactured the product, attached a hefty price tag and VOILA = vanity cash cow.
Lashes AND eyebrows become longer and darker
Longer lashes makes you look younger, and a bit Kardashian-esque
Your lashes will continue to grow since the product eliminates the natural hair shedding process
This is very hard to comprehend, but you my have to use scissors to trim your eyelashes since they can become too long. Amazing, I know.
It takes a solid 6-weeks of applications before you will love your lashes
There will be a stage in the beginning where your lashes will look like spider legs since some will be longer than others. Be patient, they will fill in.
You have to apply the product every night until you get to your desired length
You will notice red irritation above the upper lash line. This can be covered with makeup
Occasionally your eyes will be red/itchy. I noticed I had more sun sensitivity when I was in Hawaii - apparently that is not common.
If your eyes are green, you may be at risk to have increased brown pigment. Mine are blue and I have not noticed any changes whatsoever.
Sorry for the gross eye close-up. No curler used. Crazy, huh?
