I second 867, Latisse is awesome for lashes. Mine look fake almost they are so long. Mine weren't short to begin with but Latisse just makes them better! You can also get Minoxidil OTC even at Walmart for hair loss and they have a generic that's much less expensive.
I just picked up Younique on Ebay for $13. Using my Ebay Bucks it cost me $6. It runs $30 by the private sellers. I've never used it, I will let you know. Also, you should use 2 mascaras, 3 if you want it waterproof. One that lengthens first, then one that volume-izes. Waterproof for hold.
Younique is tricky. I have watched YouTube about it. It can be clumpy if you do it wrong. But do it right and you get amazing results with their fibers. I work with a bunch of ladies. We always talk about our beauty secrets.
I think the trick with fibers is to get them to go the right direction, that is, vertacle. They go on in all different directions right from the tube so you have to brush them the length of your lashes using another clean brush. It takes time.
AFWife. I have straight lashes, only the tiniest bit of natural curl. I need the use of an eyelash curler for my lashes to be seen. Water-based mascara will take the curl out of curled lashes. If I don't use a waterproof one as a base coat, I think Yonique will also take the curl out if as you say, it removes easily.
Also, as 86 zmentioned, Latisse produces longer, thicker darker lashes- it takes a couple of months, but if works- buY it on line, it's half the price- and follow directions- DON'T put it on your bottom lashes-
I've read that, too, but it's never happened to anyone I know- just make sure you don't put a ton on so that it gets in your eyes, and stay off the bottom lashes! You don't need much- I don't go all the way to the corners, either- and don't buy it with a prescription, because the cost will kill you! You can order it online, now-
If you put it on the bottom lashes you are using too much and wasting it . Latisse doesn't work any faster with more but you risk darkening of the skin using extra. I use 1 drop a day instead of 2 and got results after a month. ... Used that tube mascara. When i removed it, i thought my lashes were coming off. It freaked me out. Lol
I had a convo with my hair stylist as she lopped off 6-8" off my hair. We think it is a problem for women who naturally lose body hair volume like eye lashes, eye brows and head hair as we age, while being young enough to care about our looks. It's not about vanity, it's about caring how we look. When you lose eye brow volume it changes the expression on your face. then add medical issues, such as chemo and what Blessed is going through and loss of hair becomes even more of a challenge.
I have always had short sparse eye lashes and they have always been a challenge for me to achieve the look I want. I wore lash extensions in HS and College before they were called "Extensions". I have experimented with most of the mascara products and lash lengthening products out there, including Jan Marino's $$ lash product when it first came out. Losing lash volume as I age has only made my issues worse.
I wore extensions in a natural length for about 4 years. I removed them in December to try out some of the new things out there. Since Latisse is working for growth, I am excited about using Younique for length and volume. Watching the Youtube on this product gives me encouragement. It is fun to watch the expressions and squeals of surprise when they are pleased with the product.
