My Experience With Latisse

Hi beautiful muggies!  I wanted to share with you my experience with Latisse since I’ve had so many of you asking about my lashes.  Here’s my thoughts on it, with some pictures showing the before and after!

My lashes have always pretty long but not as thick- I wanted to see if Latisse actually worked like it was advertised.  I started using it 4 months ago and spread out 2 bottles worth.  Normally you apply it every night, but I used it every other night since it is so pricey!  I started noticing longer lashes after 3-4 weeks of use, and slightly thicker lashes after 3 months.

Here’s 4 months after using Latisse (2 bottles worth):

Each bottle costs $120 (ouch!) and lasts one month if applied daily.  Is it worth it?  um…. not so sure.   It did make my lashes longer and darker, but honestly I’d rather spend the same amount of money for lash extensions that are dramatically thicker and longer.  Plus the monthly upkeep of them is $40-60 a month instead of $120.   If Latisse would drop their price to maybe $20-40 a bottle, I may consider buying more.

I have not had any side effects- no problems with vision, no change in eye color, and no discomfort whatsoever.  The only thing that bothers me is you have to apply every single night or it will not work.


  • Longer, thicker, and darker lashes
  • Does not damage natural lashes
  • Too expensive
  • Have to apply it every night
  • Is not a permanent solution. When you stop using, your lashes will eventually go back to normal length.

Price:  $120

Where to Buy: Your local dermatologist

I did find a generic bottle on Amazon- not sure how well it works, but it may be worth a shot.    (Amazon)

If you all are interested, I will do another video later about just lash extensions.  Have a wonderful weekend!  Much love, Marlena
