The Latisse Diaries: Week 2, Part 1

The Latisse Diaries: Week 2, Part 1 — Ouch!

Why am I in pain? I'll tell you. I've been using Latisse for a while now, and though I haven't seen results just yet, I do know one thing for sure — the brushes that come with the product are terrible. For the dish on one of the worst things about Latisse, just keep reading.

My skin is sensitive, sure, but these brushes are really scratchy and of poor quality, and I've begun to doubt the necessity of using them. So I'm throwing them out, dear reader. I know how much I'm supposed to apply (the brushes also do not, as the box claims, give you just the right amount of solution. I think they just absorb a lot of the product so you'll use it faster), and having gorgeous eyelashes is totally not worth it if I have scratched, purple eyelids. With my dermatologist's benison, I'm going my own way. Oh, also, I'll be checking in a couple of days from now with some juicy tips. So watch this space.

you're right!...the brushes are really terrible! It only absorbs a lot of the product & i felt really bad for throwing away all those brushes & producing so much unnecessary waste... =\ I only got Latisse b/c I accidently cut some of my lashes while trimming my eyebrows…LOL…. be very carefully while using scissors. =) My lashes did grow a bit longer (not thicker)... though really only noticeable w/ mascara.

ren_kr, the Latisse website esentially says "it probably won't happen, but it might." Could LATISSE® cause the color of my eyes to change? Increased brown iris pigmentation has occurred when similar medications were instilled directly into the eye to treat elevated intraocular pressure/glaucoma. Although iris pigmentation was not reported in clinical studies with LATISSE®, patients should be advised about the potential for increased brown iris pigmentation which is likely to be permanent. Other sources (beauty blogs, reviews, tec.) say that it is a legitimate risk.

I remember when this product came out maybe a few years ago, I read somewhere in some article that some chemical or ingredient can cause your iris to change into a darker color? Was that all a myth?
