I LOVE the way my eyelashes look when I use fake eyelashes. Long, dark, and full. But putting them on is so much work. Why is it that the nights I want to wear them, I always feel like I don’t have enough time to get them on right? What usually ends up happening is a domino-effect disaster: I’m rushing, so I don’t wait long enough for the eyelash glue to “set,” since I don’t wait for it to set, the eyelashes don’t stay in place. Then, there I am trying to get them on evenly but inevitably, one is on closer to the inner corner of my left eye and the other one is closer to the outer corner of my right eye, and then I have to take them off and try to re-do them. But now there’s little balls of adhesive stuck to my eyelid and its rubbing off all of my eye shadow… ugh! Oh and then of course, by the end of the night, one of them starts falling off so it looks like a mini spider is crawling down my face. So when Latisse came out a few years ago with the promise of an easy, in-home process that would grow long, luscious lashes, I was VERY interested.
I got my first Latisse kit from a plastic surgeon’s office. Now the thing about Latisse is that it doesn’t give you long luscious lashes overnight. Beauty takes time my friend. You have to apply the liquid solution to your eyes every night for 16 weeks before you start seeing results. I started seeing results before that, but still not until around the 6 week mark. And at first, I would look at my eyelashes and I would “think” that they looked darker and longer, but then I thought that maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me. But then, I started getting the compliments. Lots of them. Only from women, but women that knew me very well, like my sister-in-law and my cousin. They noticed something about me, but they couldn’t put their finger on the change. They would say, “Did you change your mascara? You eyelashes look so pretty!” I told them I had been using Latisse. They were amazed. A couple of weeks later, I noticed that my eyelashes had gotten so long that they were hitting the insides of my sunglasses when I was wearing them! Wow. My lashes looked as if I had falsies on. With a little mascara- forget it! They looked like Kim Kardashian lashes. That was a deal changer moment for me. I actually got to a point where I didn’t want them to grow any more! I think around the 3 or 4 month mark, I started only applying the application every other night instead of every night. This worked at maintaining my new lashes, and I was also able to save some money becuase I wasn’t going through the solution so fast.
Interested in lashes so long and luscious they look fake? Well now, you don’t have to go to a plastic surgeon’s office to try Latisse. CVS Minute Clinic now provides Latisse eyelash lengthening consultations. All you have to do is stop by your nearest Minute Clinic for an assessment. They’re available at every clinic, seven days a week, and no appointment is necessary.
LATISSE® is the only FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough lashes. It is a prescription treatment to grow eyelashes longer, fuller, darker. Great eyelashes don’t just happen overnight. That’s why it’s important to note that LATISSE® solution works gradually and remarkably.
As the treatment progresses, you’ll first begin to see changes in length. Then, gradually, you’ll notice more thickness and darkness in your lashes. If you’re satisfied with your results by week 8, don’t stop there. Stick with the treatment. After week 16, you’ll see the full effect of LATISSE® solution — and so will others.
