I've always been fairly satisfied with my lashes, until I compare them to my sister's. (It's sort of like thinking you have a pretty decent body, and then comparing yourself to your sister, Gisele). My lashes are pretty long and thick and curly, but they are not so outstanding that they attract attention and garner compliments. So I've always been on the quest for naturally longer lashes.
Sure, mascara can give you longer, fuller lashes temporarily, but I want my lashes to be wink-worthy even without makeup.
For years I've relied on Talika Lipocils, a brush on lash conditioner that you apply in much the same way as you do mascara. Unlike mascara, it really builds longer, stronger lashes. I've been using it on and off, and when I'm religious about it, I really notice a difference.
But recently, my friend Kari slipped me a tube of RevitaLash. One of the key ingredients in RevitaLash is a glaucoma medication, which may sound strange, but it's really supposed to have miraculous effects. Unlike Talika Lipocils, RevitaLash is applied as you would liquid liner, at the base of the lashes. Kari is a beauty professional and she is a definite believer! She's been using it for a couple of months now, and her lashes are noticeably longer and lusher. She claims her lower lashes have gotten so long, that they look like they used to look with mascara on.
Unfortunately, I will have to wait to try it until after my pregnancy. Because even though I will never have my sister's blue eyes, I wouldn't mind competing for most lavish lashes.
