    Latisse

    From a medical perspective

    Latisse totally does what it says it's going to do. Why? Because the drug company who manufactures this same exact medication as a glaucoma drop just happened to notice that patient's eyelashes were growing, thickening and darkening like crazy after using it for a while. Someone got smart, changed the name and packaging, and Latisse was born from Lumigan...except your insurance won't cover this. ;) How do I know this? I've worked for eye doctors for over 10 years now. Lumigan, Travatan and Xalatan have all shown marked eyelash growth when being used to treat glaucoma. It works exactly the way it promises. The drawbacks are the redness of skin and darkening around the eyes, skin irritation, some red eyes, and some people have noticed brown pigmentation in the irises of their eyes. (although thats not very common, so don't freak out) Another ripoff are the brushes. They're crappy to begin with, and make precision work of putting the product at the lash line all but impossible. Not to mention, they want you to use one per eye and throw them away immediately. Pfft. Forget that and just buy yourself a tiny eyeliner brush and some brush cleaner. You'll save product usage, skin contact...and annoyance. This is also something that you have to use long term, because if you stop...the effect goes away. You can maintain by using it 3-4 times a week, though. Overall? Expensive, but it works.

  • L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara

    I LOVE this mascara!! I keep trying different ones when the hype comes out, but I always go back to this. There just isn't a better mascara in my opinion. It stays on all day with NO flakes. I have even cried while wearing it, and it doesn't run and make me look like I'm behind bars. Aside from the red, puffy eyes, no one can tell you've cried by your lashes. Total win.
