- I do have stretch marks, yes. I’ve never tried to do anything about them, though. You could try bio oil/ shea butter/ coco butter… Alternatively you could look into the various medi-spa procedures offered to target stretch marks like laser etc.
- Thank you! I used latisse for a while hoping it would make my lashes darker but it just made them so long that it sucked to wear glasses. I stopped using it a long time ago and my lashes now are just how they were before.
Latisse is pretty pricey but i’ve not heard of anyone trying it that didn’t see results in length and thickness. You could try one of the cheaper ones out there first if you didn’t wanna commit; NYX have one.
- Bring up in general to look at or bring up to me? I guess people don’t really just show me my own nude photos because i was there when they were taken, i’ve seen them! As far as shooting nude again, i don’t know… i have no strong urge to.
- It’s on it’s way!
- Aw thank you so much for saying so!
- I had a sample of Origins GinZing that i really liked. I don’t use any eye products specifically for puffiness, just the One Love Organics Eye Balm.
- They’re from BDG i believe :)
Yo Rhian! I know how you love your beauty products and read a while back that you were experimenting with latisse. I wanted to recommend/let you know that Physicians Formula 2+1 eyebooster lash serum Eyeliner is literally making my eyelashes grow like weeds. And it retails for about $10! I've had to cut back using it because my eyelashes are getting too long. It's a great product and an excellent and very precise eyeliner as well, and since it's PF its super gentle on the eyes.
- If you are already using non oil-based products i would try a product like a primer or setting spray that controls oil.
Prime Time primer is awesome so i imagine this one is too.
Urban Decay just partnered up with Skindinavia to make their version of the original setting spray which comes highly recommended.
You might also want to look at what skin care you’re using and see if you might need to try something new to control the oil. Just an idea :)
- I have absolutely no idea if its even sold in the UK yet. You could try calling medispas (anywhere that does fillers/botox etc) and see if they carry it. Otherwise you might just have to try online (read lots of reviews if you’re unsure) or wait til its available :)
any final thoughts on latisse? only anonymous as i don't have tumblr but i follow you for your beauty tips! you are so inspiring, would love to have a friend like you xo
Definitely lengthens and thickens but didn’t darken mine.
If you already have dark eyelashes though, the thickening effect would make them look darker.
Use it with a thin eyeliner brush and it’ll last longer.
Latisse boasts that it lengthens, thickens and darkens lashes with one application per day. I noticed 2 out of 3 which isn’t bad. My lashes are longer and thicker but still just as blonde. I’m guessing if you already had dark lashes, the thickening effect would make them look darker but it didn’t work for me.
I found what worked best for me is to apply it at night after I’d removed all my make up. I didn’t use the applicator brushes included because they are so thick I felt like they soaked up some of the latisse. I use a thin eyeliner brush which gives you better control over the application and also makes the product last longer. I just squeeze 1 drop out and dip the brush in then run it along my upper lash line on each eye. You don’t need to use much at all!
I stopped using it for a couple of weeks around allergy time just to avoid aggravating my eyes any more but other than that i’ve had no issues with irritation or redness.
When I bought it I paid $111.30 at my local medi-spa but it had a rebate offer to get one free so essentially I paid around $50 for each. Check prices at a medi-spa in your area for accurate pricing.
I would definitely recommend this for lengthening and thickening lashes but not so much for the darkening. I’m kicking myself for not taking before photos but I have definitely noticed a difference and think it was well worth the money.
I wanted to try Latisse after i saw my nurse at a local medi spa had the most ridiculous lashes ever due to Latisse.
I’ve always had fairly thick, long lashes but they are so blonde that i can’t get away with not wearing mascara and Latisse boasts longer, thicker, darker lashes so i figured it was worth a shot.
I’ve been using it about 4 weeks now and i’m definitely noticing them becoming thicker and longer. When i have mascara on they look more uniform if that makes sense, no sparse areas or varying thicknesses.
So far i’ve not had any darkening but it can take a while longer before i’ll notice that and really i’ll be the only one who notices it because i always wear mascara when i go out. I know a lot of people have seen the commercials and are worried about darkening of the skin around the eyes and even pigmentation in your iris but i haven’t noticed anything yet or heard of anyone else experiencing it so lets hope that’s just a very rare side effect.
I’ve not had any adverse reaction at all yet but i am very careful not to get any in my eye and apply it with a TINY lash brush. I know a handful of other girls who’ve used it with great results too.
If you want it for thickness and length i’d say its definitely worth the money and latisse usually run rebate offers. Mine was $111.30 and i sent in my rebate for a full free kit so it worked out around $50 per pack. As far as darkening i can’t comment on that yet but i’ll keep you up to date.
Re: the question you received about latisse.
I have had so many customers come in to work who use it and the results are actually outrageous! I swear a woman had lashes almost an inch long and they were so thick and black and curly. I could see them across the shop. Excellent for eyebrows too apparently. Would love so much to try it myself except for the large price tag!
Awesome to know!
Thank you. I’m definitely thinking of giving it a try.
