Excited - at first. Had to discontinue due to darkened eyelids.

I was excited from the minute I heard about the ingredient in glaucoma medication that would grow lashes! I am part Native American and I have little body hair and virtually NO lashes. Extensions weren't even the answer, as you have to have enough lashes to attach the faux lashes to! I learned as a teen model to apply strip lashes extremely well, but what a pain on a daily basis and while traveling. For my 60th birthday "makeover" this year, I am treating myself to several beauty "treatments."

I purchased Latisse through my Dermatologist and started Jan. 10. I was told full effects would take 4 months, but at 2 1/2 months - I am THRILLED. I am using an art brush to apply and am also using on my eyebrows. The bottle lasted 2 months, and the office staff at my doctor's office said that they use the product about 3 times a week after achieving full effects. My lashes are darker and much longer. I even had to trim 2-3 of them. I am waiting for them to get thicker, but the current improvement is so good that I would be happy if the current appearance was the full effect. I am sure some of my co-workers and my sister will be the next Latisse customers!

I am now past the 3 month mark with using Latisse faithfully. My lashes are a lot longer, but not as full as I thought they would be, and a few of them are stick straight - cannot be curled or mascara'd in any way to "join" the others. I am also having to use a Ton of concealer and eyeshadow to cover the darkening of my entire eyelid (a greyish purple). And no, I have not applied the product anywhere but the lash line with a very fine art brush, - making sure it is dry before going to bed. I'm not sure if this will be a permanent solution for me and may consider trying SmartLash.

At 4 months, I treated myself to a make-up lesson with a reputable professional artist who has worked in the movie industry. I had already discontinued daily use of Latisse, but her comment was "Ya gotta lose that stuff." Without makeup, the entire orbital eye area is dark. I have no idea how long it will take to get better! (Anyone else have this experience?) Again, I did nothing different/wrong in application. Her clients have had great results with LiLash, and I have already ordered it.

8 months

The discoloration has faded and the 2nd product I used was LiLash - no results. I did lose the Latisse lashes, but my natural lashes are a big thicker and healthier just from not wearing false strip lashes and using as much mascara. The 3rd product I am currently using is Talika Lipocil eyelash gel. The saga continues.......
