Twice I started and stopped Latisse due to unsightly dark pigmentation around my eyes. A friend of mine who had used Latisse and stopped, did so because she experienced both redness and itching, as well as eyelash hairs growing crookedly and getting into her eyes. I was tempted to begin again, after reading more hype, but was reminded of my previous experiences. I am convinced that since... more
For the first 7 month of use I was amazed! My lashes were so long, not too much fuller, but beautiful enough to get compliments all the times. My eye lid is a little darker, but I have medium skin tone and it doesn't look bad.
About a month a got I started to notice white bumps on my lower eye lid, but I thought...uh it'll go away, it's worth it my long lashes. Last night after... more
I can say for a fact that Latisse works. I had thin, short, light auburn lashes before. Now, at not quite 4 months I have very long, slightly thicker, dark brown lashes. They are really amazingly long.
I have brown eyes and I have not seen any darkening of my eyes or the area around my eyes.
I have been using the product on my eyebrows and it seems to be making them thicker too.
I am a Filipino-American in my early 20s who was born with "wimpy" lashes. I've tried lash extensions (too expensive & only look good for the first week), and falsies (still wear them for special occasions for extra OOMPH). I wanted to have nice, long, natural looking lashes for daily life and tried both Jan Marini and Revitalash. They both worked but once I found out they... more
Definitely worth it! I used it for the full 16 weeks and am now just maintaining by applying Latisse every 3 days. It does leave your eyes bloodshot and somewhat irritated for the first month but that can easily be remedied by using eye drops. They are long, thick and all I need is one coat of mascara. My lashes hit my upper lids. My friends thought I had on fake lashes.

I've been using this for a few years, I used Lumigan off-label before Latisse came out (they are the same thing made by the same company).
I've learned that there is a growth cycle with Latisse. With daily use your lashes will continue to grow longer and thicker until about the 8 week point, then you'll notice there is a shedding period when you longest lashes start to fall out... more
Good news: It really worked. My lashes got so long I couldn't even wear my sunglesses because they kept hitting the lenses! The lashes got longer however they did not get thicker.
Bad news: They stayed long about two weeks and then fell out! So the results were short lived. more
I have been using Latisse for 6 days now. After the 4th day, I noticed that my eyelids feel weird. By weird, I mean heavy. I can't even explain it but it feels weird. The applicators that it is very tacky and bulky so I listened to the others on this forum and went out and purchased a small eyebrow brush. I put one drop of the latisse in the cap and use the brush to sweep it across my upper... more
My lashes are very sparse so I decided to give Latisse a try. It's been exactly 2 weeks now and I have to say it is working. My lashes are a bit longer now, just not that thick and lush yet. But it's only been 2 weeks and I look forward to seeing the results in the next 2 weeks. more
