    Hi Brides,

    I was wondering if anyone has had any success with Latisse, the product that is currently being pitched by Brooke Shields. Would you mind posting pics as well as feedback? It's pretty expensive, so I'm sure that there are some brides who'd like to know if it's worth the investment.

      I've not tried it, probably because it's so expensive! But Sephora has a mascara that promises to make your lashes longer and thicker, and it's cheaper than Latisse (see link). Have you tried it?

        No, I hadn't heard of that one but I will investigate. I was told that the downside to Latisse is that once you stop using it, your new growth lashes do fall out.

          I heard that too. I guess it would be similar to Rogaine. It apparently will grow new hair (on your head!), but the minute you stop using it your new growth will fall out.

          I'm also curious to see if anyone's tried Latisse (or Sephora's mascara - yikes, I've hi-jacked your thread !!).

            I was going to try it, as I hate how short my eyelashes are...but I love the green color of my eyes and would be sad if they darkened (a side effect of Latisse). Also, if you discontinue use of Latisse, your lashes do not stay long...I figured I wouldn't be using it for the rest of my life so whats the point. lol. Would love to know other brides results if they used it!

              I think it was a waste of money personally. Didn't make that big of a difference for the hassle. I have invested in a good mascara and fake lashes for special days. It's alot easier I promise you

                I haven't tried Latisse or Sephora's brand, but I have tried Renew Lash (Amazon.com: RenewLash Eyelash Stimulator: Beauty). It is amazing. During the first week your eyes get a little red and itchy, but then you get used to it. Your eyelashes get thicker, darker and longer. I got mine from a friend who is a cosmetologist, but Amazon also carries it. Personally, I think it was a good investment because it lasts for a long time and then you don't have to worry about fake lashes coming off on your wedding day...not to mention they look good everyday.

                  I agree, it seems kinda like a waste. I might get an eyelash perm, because mine point STRAIGHT down (like snuffelofagous ?sp?) And then I'm going with fake! I would rather spend $150 on a room upgrade or a snorkel trip or something more fun than lashes that are a few mm longer :)

                    I've heard generally good things about Latisse.

                    That being said, I got "flirty fakes" applied for my legal day at home, from MAC for $13, and I LOVED them!!! My MIL bought the glue and reapplied the same lashes for me on the wedding day and the result was more stunning (and cheaper/easier!) than Latisse would have been, I have no doubt

                      I've tried Talika Lipocils about 2 years ago, it works. For me it wasn't noticable on the top as they were on the bottom. I went from having next to no noticeable lower lashes (they were thin and short) to having quite a few longer lower lashes. they didn't fall out they're still there.

                      since it was a bit pricey and at the time i wasn't sure if the lashes woudl stay, i didn't purchase a new tube, haven't thought about re-purchaing again but definately thinking about it now.
