I got the short end of the stick in the eyelash department. Started Latisse on February 2 of this year. I've never had great eyelashes but I do now. It is now the end of June 2016, I've been using the product for 4 months now. I began cutting back. Allergen sent me a free bottle but I've always had to put more of the brush than l gtt. I'm going to try the suggestion I read here about cutting the brushes bristles off. I read what was written here about purchasing from a reputable pharmacy. Will try to post pics at a later date.
