PROFILE: 24 year old Asian female with short short eyelashes. I've tried it all - from fake eyelashes, to those Korean eyelash extensions, to eyelash perms (which worked the best for its price) - but nothing ever really worked. The eyelash perms were really good because it kept my lashes curled for 4 weeks. But perming them didn't make the lashes any longer; they were still short and scarce.
1. Easy to use - Applied once a night right before bed
2. Really does work - I definitely have noticeable longer and fuller lashes, after just one month of use
1. Expensive $$$ - $120 and not covered under insurance because its cosmetic* (I have gone back to my PCP doctor for my 2nd month supply, but I asked for a generic brand that's insurance covered, called Lumigan - which is suppose to have the same effect. Check back later for updates on that)
2. Small supply - the box it comes in is quite big. But after you take out all the brushes (which all aren't necessary), the Latisse bottle itself is super small
I haven't noticed any of the side effects that were spoken of: eye color change or darkening of the eyes. The only thing I might have faced is some morning red eye (which I fix with some Visine). But I'm not sure if its from my daily contact/make-up usage or what. I think I'll continue to use this product because I'm happy with the results. Let's see how the Lumigan product goes!
