Lush Lashes

When I was younger I had great eyelashes. They were long and thick and dark. They were so long they would hit my eyeglass lenses. But it seems that the older I get, the more thin and brittle my lashes become. And because I refuse to grow old, I needed to find a solution.
Latisse was the first product to hit the market, but 2 things stopped me from trying it. First, you need a prescription (I’m sure my eye doctor would laugh as he’s always commenting on how long my lashes are). Second, and this is a biggie for me, it can cause brown pigmentation of the colored part of your eye (which may be permanent). I have blue eyes. I love having blue eyes and I do not want them turning brown. So, I set off to find an alternative.
I started with Peter Thomas Roth’s Lashes to Die For Platinum. I really liked it and saw great results. I used it for quite awhile, but at $125 a tube….this unemployed girl could not swing it anymore. I headed to Sephora to see what else there was and found a lot of choices. I went with Urban Decay’s Lush Lash System. I liked that it was a two-part system. There is a clear gel serum you put on your lash line (upper only). The serum accelerates lash growth. The other part is a conditioning mask you put on like mascara. The results have been amazing. My lashes are definitely fuller and longer, and I don’t have the breakage or lash loss that had been plaguing me. One tube is $42, but it lasts for several months. There are many other lash accelerators on the market now, but I think I’ll stick with Urban Decay!
