Lashes....long beautiful lashes are so pretty. I love the look of full feathery non-clumpy lashes. Unfortunately I was not born with those flirty lashes of my dreams. However, I have learned a way to get something close over the years.
(Me and my long-lashed and slightly sunburned husband in Steamboat, Colorado.)
I was born with lighter sparse eyelashes that are short and straight. No matter how much mascara and lash curling I did they were never ideal. My husband however has the most amazing natural lashes...seriously they are every gals dream lashes. They are dark, long, full and have the perfect curl. I am so jealous! (Me, Michael and our long lashes on a plane to Europe)
Everything changed when I started using Latisse. It is my absolute favorite lash product! Latisse is a serum that is applied daily to the lash base and causes lashes to grow darker, fuller and longer over a period of 16 weeks. It changed everything for my lashes. I went from having minimal lashes to now having luscious lashes that I love. I even get compliments on my lashes and some people even think I have lash extensions! What a difference Latisse has made for me! (Now if only there were a serum like this for my short legs!)
I have tried other lash serums but none have worked as well for me as Latisse. Revitalash is another serum to help with lengthening. Unlike Latisse, Revitalash is not a prescription and is plant based. I found that when I stopped Latisse and switched to Revitalsh my lashes grew longer but they seemed less full and feathery so I switched back. I also tried the ZO Ossential Lash Enhancing Serum which is a peptide that helps to grow the lashes but again I found that Latisse worked best for my lashes.
When I apply Latisse to my lashes and my husband sees me he teases me and says I am "doping". He calls me Lance Armstrong because I am using steroids on my lashes to make them grow. In response, I just give him a big smile and a seductive wink with my flirty, long, feathery steroid-enhanced lashes and I am always sure to get a kiss! (Us in Lake Como, Italy).
