Has anyone tried "Latisse" to grow your lashes?

    I have been using Latisse for a couple months now and I LOVE IT!!! I looked into using it after I had some eyelash extensions that pulled out most of my middle lashes, I was frantic to say the least. A girl I work with started using it and I saw results on her in about 2 weeks... so I made an apt with my eye doctor and I got it. Not only did my lashes that were little broken stubs grow back but the good lashes I had grew longer and thicker. When I first started using it I was doing it every night, but now that I have my lashes the length and thickness I want I only do it every 3-4 nights to maintain. My Insurance actually covered the script since it is also used to treat glaucoma when used directly in the eye so it ended up only being $35 and the bottle has lasted 2 months and its not empty by any means. I would recommend it to anyone.

      I've tried it.....I used to work at a laser eye clinic, so we had the same stuff as Latisse, but the Glaucoma brand (its exactly the same thing, just different name for the different purpose!) We had samples that I used so I didn't have to pay for it. It certainly worked, but i'm not good at a routine, and it just wasn't something I kept up. Personally I'd rather just wear fakes for one day, so much easier and from what I know, more cost effective!

        Sephora: Talika Eyelash Lipocils: Mascara
        I use Talika for my eyebrows (I literally have none, in my family we lose them with age) and I swear by it. I have never used the eyelash thickener but I will have to check it out.

          I've done falsies on many occasions and I just love them. We are having lots of events the weekend of the wedding and I don't know how well they will stay on. Sometimes the glue itches my lids a bit as well. I considered Latisse because I plan to spend lots of time in the water - pool and beach - and want to have that glam factor even then. Vain, huh?

            I've always had short and spaced apart lashes, so i tried lash extensions couple months ago to see if i'd like them for the wedding. then had them removed, big mistake - they're even worse than before!


            so i finally had a moment, went and asked my doc for the prescription for latisse and filled it today. hopefully it works!

                  Oh don't even start with just BABY boys when comparing them to my stubs of lashes.  Every guy I've dated or has been a close male friend has had the most think, luxurious and beautifully curled lashes! People used to think my ex wore eye-liner since they were so thick and long (he didn't btw).  Not fair, haha.

                      Hi ladies,


                      In case you were curious, here's some photos of the results I've been seeing so far.


                      (Photo is best viewed closer, so here's a link)



                      The gaps before I started were from having lash extensions removed.


                      I put mascara on the last photo because it's easier to see the lashes. Although the gaps have not been all filled in yet, there's definate improvement.


                      Let's see how this goes after few weeks.
