LATISSE aka the beginnings of a lengthy review.

Today at my yearly dermatologist appointment (or should I say, full scale inspection that should have resulted in a lovely dinner!) I asked about Latisse. I have been reading about it on blogs, in mags, on forums, and obviously seeing Brooke Shields and Claire Danes in the ads hasn't hurt either. I only hesitated because I was concerned about eye color change. I like the color of my eyes so adding more brown isn't really appealing, but I figured if that happened I would quit using it.

So I called the pharmacies around town before filling it, on the recommendation of the doctor and nurse practitioner, and ended up just settling at CVS. Regularly priced, it's $98 at Walmart, but I'd rather pay more than enter the gates of hell, Target didn't have it in stock to give me a price, CVS was $115 and Walgreens was $119. I went with CVS, and was smart enough to get a coupon from the Latisse website for $20 off. So vanity is not cheap. I really hoped this product would help me get darker, denser lashes so that my morning mascara routine could maybe be cut in half. It seriously takes like 10-15 each morning just to do my mascara. Which is ludicrous. But we'll see.

I will try to take pics as I go. And hopefully at the end can show a series.

Stay tuned!


  1. I asked my derm about it a few months ago, but I couldn't get past the cost. I'm looking forward to the on-going review!

  2. I'm really excited to hear your thoughts on the product. I've heard it works really well.


What do you think?
