Well, so, it’s a long story…
It started innocently enough, with a pair of cheap false lashes from the drug store. Drug store false lashes are THE BEST the best the best. Two thumbs up! I got a little bit accustomed to seeing my face framed by enormous lashes and so suddenly, one day, it wasn’t enough to glue them on every day. I wanted something more… permanent. That’s when it got progressively more serious, with some at-home DIY lash extensions experiments (which I don’t not recommend trying, but which I also can’t totally recommend, either… ??), and then when those DIY lash extensions started falling out and taking my real lashes with them by the angry clumpful …
Right. You see what I mean?
My mother was using Latisse at the time, a prescription-only eyelash growth serum and, having seen the results in person, I decided it was high time I start doping my lashes so they’d come back in with vigor. Except I didn’t really want to go to the hassle of convincing my doctor to write me a scrip, and also, no insurance on the planet is going to cover this, and also, a single tube clocks in at around $130. Not to mention the copay.
So, I played around a bit with the various drugstore options available before letting my curiosity win out and ordering some Lilash (a non-prescription version of Latisse).
Specifically I was looking for: insane, insane lash length, boosted volume, and hopefully no weird-o side effects (eye color changes, I’m looking at you). Do any of these serums deliver? Would I go blind? Would my green eyes turn poopy brown?
