Happy New Year my beauties! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday! My holidays were positively perfect; filled with family, friends and relaxation.
To ring in the New Year, I want to share with you all a miracle product that has changed so much for me. I tested it out through half of 2017 and feel that I can FINALLY share my results!
Around May of 2017, I got lash extensions for the first time and absolutely loved them! However, the upkeep and cost were weighing me down after my third fill. I found that the extensions were not as full as the first application and my own lashes were quite stubby. I also had a hard time not wearing mascara as I am a mascara-junkie (mascara lessens the life of the lash extensions). I literally could apply mascara all day long, I love it that much. But I absolutely loved having these long luscious lashes everyday, so what’s a girl to do?! That’s where Latisse comes in.
What is Latisse?
Latisse is a topical treatment that helps stimulate the growth of lashes. Latisse actually originates from a glaucoma eye drop. Many patients that used this eye drop noticed that a common side effect were long, luscious lashes.
Latisse is to be applied along the upper lash line once per day. The results from Latisse begin to show after 4-8 weeks of use and the most dramatic results at 12-16 weeks of use. However, once you stop using Latisse, your lashes will eventually go back to their original length.
So, do you want to see how Latisse worked for me? I know you do!
Here are my results after 3 months of using Latisse (I also applied Latisse to my eyebrows to help thicken them up):
I did take a break for about a month, but have been using it again for a solid two months and here’s my lashes/eyebrows currently (with makeup):
I believe the results speak for themselves. Latisse is hands down AMAZEBALLS! And the most amazing part? Its my own lashes, not a foreign object being glued on to my lashes (that’s not to say that I won’t ever get lash extensions again).
There are a couple of cons when it comes to Latisse. One being the cost. Latisse can cost anywhere from $120-$150 for just 1 month’s worth of product. Also, you cannot buy Latisse over the counter as a prescription is required. However, there are a few cosmetic clinics in Kingston that you can set up a consultation with a doctor to discuss Latisse.
Although the price is steep, I truly believe this product is worth it. The results truly speak for themselves! Have you tried Latisse? Let me know what you think!
