LATISSE

Anyone get good results with Latisse? I just started using it. Is it me or is the brush hard to use. If I had an angle brush I feel like I could reach the base of the lashes better.

I used a new eyeliner brush without issues. It worked fast for me. I noticed growth within two weeks like major length. It works good but I had to lay off because it caused my extensions to fall off quicker

Omg what a great idea! Thanks for that tip. The brushes they give you are really annoying. I was thinking of going back to get my extensions put on but I got frustrated with them being so expensive here. It's over a hundred bucks here in NYC every time. That's why I tried Latisse. But I'm dying to put my extensions back on b/c I feel like they aren't growing fast enough!

I started it about a month ago and love it!!! I already use another eyelash inhancer and use its brush instead. The Latisse works so much better! Huge results already after 1 month, can't wait to see in another or two.

Nice! I've been using it now for two weeks and I haven't seen any progress yet. But the recep at my ps office who sold it to me said it was fab! Anyone know if you can use it on eyebrows also?

Apparently you can use it on any hair so eyebrows would work. I used it for a few years and it was great when I was using it. The downside (sorry) is that as soon as you stop using it - the eyelashes fall out (shed) and you are back to square one. All hair goes through three stages - growing, resting, and shedding. Latisse works (they think) by affecting the growth of eyelash hairs by increasing the length as well as the number of hairs in the growth cycle.

Oh wow! I didn't know about the growing, resting, and shedding cycles. Interesting. I stopped going for the fake extensions here b/c it was so pricey (like every 2-3 weeks $100) and I started to think my real lashes were getting damaged. I miss the long, sexy look of them though so I picked up some latisse at my ps's office. I'm going to try it on my brows next b/c I feel like they are thinning out.

Latisse Brush

I have been using for about 18 months now - good stuff - I end of buying brushes at my local beauty store - I wish they would fix that. Otherwise great stuff and price. www.latisse.bz

I have used it for couple years. Love the results. I take the cap and put a tiny drop in that ...dont squeeze too hard...then dip a tiny brush in and apply.

Thanks for all of your responses and tips. I really appreciate it. Where did you guys get different brushes? I can't find any!!! And the one it came with is annoying. It's too fat!!

I love Latisse. I miss my fake eyelashes sometimes too. But it is expensive and annoying to keep getting them filled in!

Ordered mine off amazon and was told to just sanitize it regularly like I do other make up bushes. Also jut put one small drop in the cap and also run it along end of eye brows after lashes.

I use latisse! Love that stuff!! I use one drop per day and use a tiny liquid eyeliner brush. One drop is more than enough for both eyes and makes a bottle last twice as long!

Does it make your eyes red? A guy I work with uses it and his eyes are always blood shot. Apparently it's a side effect? I really want to try it though.

if you're having trouble with the brush, cut it angled. And yes, when I used to use it my eyes were always blood red. I liked the product, it made my lashes really long but didn't like the red eyes so I stopped using it.

I've heard of some people having issues with irritation/red eyes, but I don't. It definitely works. I was at a party last weekend, and in the middle of a conversation, someone blurted out, "you have the longest eyelashes? OMG, are they real?" I find that after the initial growth, if I just use it 2-3 times a week, my lashes stay long.

I just started using Latisse the other day, and I'm hoping for some great results. I'm definitely going to use a different brush, so thanks for the tip!

Did anyone have any change in their eye color? I've seen that one of the side effects is it can turn the iris brown. I love my green eyes so I would hate to sacrifice that for long lashes. I have full thick lashes, just had cousins start to use Latisse and thought I'd give it a go.
