Okay, so I tried it! I tried Latisse! For those of you not in the know, Latisse is a solution prescription treatment for hypotrichosis (a fancy name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes). With several weeks of proper applications of Latisse, your eyelashes grow! Not just grow, but get longer, thicker and darker. Apparently I have “hypotrichosis” because my lashes have always been dinky and flat, see my previous blog, “Are you Looking at Me?”. So, I tried it!
The results? FABULOUS! Six weeks and I was batting my eyes all over town. There is nothing, and I mean, NOTHING in this world that can make you look more relaxed and rested than a thick set of lashes. Mascara can only take you so far! Imagine waking up looking like you have already curled your lashes for the day (like anyone has time for that)? Imagine looking younger and more “bright eyed” on only three hours of sleep!?
My experience was simple and yet, effective. It started with a visit to Providence Eye & Laser Specialist for proper usage instructions and a quick eye check. After only thirty minutes, I was on my way! The staff was friendly, helpful, and even ogled over my twins in the waiting room (thanks)!
That night, I swiped Latisse on my lids and woke up running to the mirror just anticipating juicy lashes. Well, it didn’t happen overnight. Duh, nothing great does! It took a bit of time, but before I knew it, I was seeing darkened and plumper lashes. Finally, the word “plump” used in a positive manner! My lashes had finally grown! Once I was even asked if I “got some work done”! Seriously? All this fuss from lashes? Yes!
Latisse is a fast and effective way to change your looks without being too obvious about it, and without dropping a wad of cash. With summer here and mascara doing nothing but melting on your face, why not try something different to give yourself a little boost!? Oh, and don’t worry, your secret is safe with my . . . wink, wink!
