Latisse comes as a liquid and you place a small amount on a brush, which you then use to apply the medication along your upper eyelash line.

Latisse is actually in an eye dropper bottle

Latisse is the same medication as a glaucoma eyedrop, Lumigan, so it comes in a small eye drop bottle. It is packaged with applicators and you place a drop on the applicator and then use this to place the medication at the base of your lashes. It is packaged so that one applicator is used for each eye, and therefore it comes with 60 applicators for a month supply. Some doctors recommend to use one applicator for both upper eyelids, which effectively doubles the length of time that a bottle will last, although this is not the manufacturers recommendation and you should check with your doctor. Enough transfers from the upper lid to the lower lashes for it to be effective on these lashes as well.

Latisse comes as a drop, with a supply of applicator brushes. One package is about a month's supply, with 60 brushes. Although not recommended by the manufacturer, you can choose to use one brush for both eyes, which might give you more than a month per box.

To use Latisse, you apply a drop to the brush, then gently brush the upper eyelid at the base of the lashes. The lower lid is not treated.
