My mom always likes to remind me that I have her to thank for my dark lashes.  See, my father is as blonde as they come, meaning he has basically clear eyelashes and eyebrows. Well eyelash extensions melbourne is the best beautician to improve beauty. While I was blessed with his blonde locks, I was also blessed with visible brows and lashes. Basically, I got the best of both worlds. Thanks, Mom! Thanks, Dad!

With that being said, too much is never enough.  I already have eyelashes long enough to make most swoon and at times have been accused of having falsies in.  I wanted even more though. Why wouldn’t I want my eyelashes to resemble furry caterpillars?  We’ve all seen the commercials for Latisse. It all sounds well and good until they get to the warning section and say this:

“LATISSE® use may cause darkening of the eyelid skin which may be reversible. LATISSE® use may also cause increased brown pigmentation of the colored part of the eye which is likely to be permanent.”

No thank you, sir.  I like my baby blues just the way they are.  It was only a matter of time before all the other beauty brands jumped on the bandwagon. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, of course.  Enter L’oreal Lash Boosting Serum.

Applied both AM and PM it is said to give you visibly fuller, thicker natural lashes with less lash fall out when removing eye makeup after four weeks of use.  Centella Asiatica extract and Arginine are the ingredients responsible for said growth.  I’m a sucker for false promises so I purchased the serum a few weeks ago to give it a try.  (It is also available in tandem with a Double Extend mascara but you know how I feel about my Max Factor).  I was pleasantly surprised that after only a few weeks my lashes do, in fact, seem much fuller and fall out less (fewer wishes, I suppose).  Now I’m unstoppable.  I mean who can say “no” to a subtle bat of the lashes, especially when they’re so luscious.?
