The before and after photos are exactly the results I experienced. Longer, thicker, darker. My eyelids are reddish/brownish. If you don't wear makeup much, I wouldn't recommend this because your eyelids will look bad. I wear makeup most every day so not a big deal to me. Also I grew little lashes close to my tear ducts. They pull out really easily and painlessly - don't even need tweezers. Bought it to prepare for my wedding rather than extensions. Lashes reach up to my brows. Beautiful!
