Latisse Review and Diary

The Latisse Diaries: Week 1, Part 1 — In Which I Take the Plunge

Latisse, the liquid that the FDA recently approved to lengthen and thicken eyelashes, has fascinated me since it hit shelves a couple months back. The before-and-afters on the website are impressive, and the fact that it has a guarantee from the government is no small feat, but I'm still leery of the whole thing. (I don't love weird chemicals, as you all know.) So I've decided to use myself as a guinea pig for the greater good of Bellas everywhere and document my experience with Latisse as accurately, and with as many photos, as possible. Join me here, in the Latisse Diaries, to see real pics of what "Latisse lashes" look like and get an unbiased take on the Latisse experience. Wish me luck, and meet me back here shortly for pics and a breakdown of my first week with Latisse.

Latisse darkened my eyes in a very short amount if time, from a light bright blue green to a very dark grey/dark green. I used in twice a week for 7 weeks. Tiniest drop for both top lash lines. I used so little, I'm shocked how it even got in my eyes. I'm devastated. I only intended to use it for 8 - 12 weeks to recover from las extrndion damage. Big mistake. I'm very depressed. - can't get used to looking at them in the mirror.

Latisse gives you raccoon eyes after six weeks. The product is great for lengthening lashes but for now I have two black eyes.

Why would you use Latisse if you can use Fysiko? It grows lashes and has no side effects? I have green eyes and used Latisse? lashes grow, iris didn't change? but the trip to get prescription and the cost.. that was a problem

I can't imagine rubbing this chemical so close to my eyeball... I'm the kind of person to wait a few years so you can hear long-term results (and horror stories). Plus you have to keep using it forever or your lashes go back to normal!

I work in a medspa that sells Latisse and I have been using it for 6 weeks. I have green eyes w/ no color change or darkening of the eyelids. My eyelashes are not only longer but they are thicker and darker too. I personally know people that have to trim their eyelashes b/c the grow so long. Once you get your the results you are looking for (12-16 weeks) you go to a maintenance program (apply 1-2x per week). I am happy w/ this product and I am SUPER funny about chemicals, I saw so many people have success that I tried it!

Anon, I know someone personally who's eyes did changed color slightly, so she stopped using it right away. I know the risk is low, but they obviously wouldn't report it if it didn't exist! If I really want long lashes, I'll just get extensions.

The risks far outweigh the benefits, in my opinion. I'm curious to know how it goes but I would never do it myself. Good luck!

Would love to see how this turns out for ya! But the darkening of the irises thing is pretty weird?!?! I wonder what makes it do that?

I use this, and WOW. My lashes look a-maz-ing. I didn't notice them growing really until about 4-5 weeks, as I was putting on my mascara (I've been using it since mid March now). People are constantly commenting on how long and gorgeous my lashes are! My eyes are really dark brown, but I would have reservations if my eyes were blue or green...

I cried foul when I saw Brooke Shields as the spokes person for this product...She was born with natural lashes as thick or thicker than false lashes!

I am curious about the results, but I would never try this myself. I love the color of my eyes too much to risk permanent darkening of my irises. I know the risk is low, but it's not worth it, to me anyway!
