I know I said I wasn’t going to post any photos of my lashes after using LiLash, but as I was putting my mascara on this morning I was just so blown away by how well LiLash had worked. So I had to take these photos.
Okay granted, I was wearing a LITTLE BIT of mascara in these photos (my eyelashes get really blonde in the summer so you would have barely have been able to see them without mascara) – but yes, those are my real eyelashes thank you very much. I’m extremely impressed with this product. I highly recommend it.
In case you don’t know anything about LiLash, the abbreviated description is that it’s a non-prescritpion serum that you put on your lash line that is supposed to make your eyelashes grow longer. One of it’s biggest competitors is Latisse, which I reviewed here.
Unfortunately, I didn’t take any “before” pictures of my eyelashes before I started using LiLash (but you can look at my “before” pictures from this post to compare). But I can tell you that my lashes were short and uneven before LiLash entered my life. I used to spend a ton of time applying mascara in the mornings. Now I spend mere seconds. And unlike my experience with Latisse, LiLash has given me no irritation.
I got a couple of really good questions from readers in the comments section of my last post, which I answered there but I’ll also answer here because they made me realize I left some important information out of my review of Latisse.
Question: Kelsey, an awesome beauty blogger from Makeup Downlow, asked: “Where do you buy LiLash? Also, how expensive is it?”
Answer: I know that some hair salons sell LiLash, but you can also buy it online through their website at http://www.lilash.com/categories/LiLash-LiBrow/. It’s $139.97 online, plus shipping, I assume. When I bought it through a hair stylist, I think I paid about $170 for it. So it looks like you can get a better deal online.
Question: Katie asked: “Even though you didn’t have the same irritation with LiLash as you did with Latisse, did you have any irritation at all? Like watery eyes? Also, is it easy to apply? Those are the only things I was wondering before trying it myself.”
Answer: It’s honestly a little difficult for me to tell if LiLash has been irritating at all because my eyes are STILL a little irritated from Latisse. But as far as I can tell, I haven’t encountered any additional irritation from LiLash. But like I said, it’s a little hard to tell.
And yes, it’s really easy to apply. With Latisse you had to go through a whole bunch of brushes because they instruct you to use a new one for every application. With LiLash, you apply it like liquid eyeliner – but clear liquid eyeliner so you don’t have to stress too much about being precise.
1) ONLY apply LiLash one time a day (or even every other day). Applying more often will not make your lashes grow faster, it’ll just irritate your skin.
2) Wipe the extra solution off the brush onto the inside of the applicator (as you would if your mascara brush came out clumpy). You only need a tiny bit of the solution because it’s very potent. This will also make it last longer – bonus!!
3) Don’t put any of it on your bottom lashes.
Following these tips and the directions on the bottle will help prevent irritation and still give you awesome results.
I’m glad I was able to share my experiences with all of you! What do you think? Are you considering trying a lash growth serum?
