To Latisse or not to Latisse?

Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE a full lash. I'm the girl wearing two or three pairs of falsies on a night out. I'm notorrrrrrrrrious for it.

Unfortunately, God did not bless me with the long, thick lashes that I waste $12 a weekend to achieve [But he did gift me with an indestructible head of hair, so fair's fair]. I've been seriously considering eyelash extensions, despite the hefty price tag and need for replacement appointments every 3 weeks or so.

Suffice to say, I was way too excited when a "miracle product" for sparse lashes arrived. Latisse, a prescription drug that is applied to the base of eyelashes, boasts longer lashes. It works by keeping hairs in their growth phase, producing longer, darker and thicker eyelashes.

Now, I have light amber colored eyes, so warnings of potential increased brown iris pigmentation (which is likely to be permanent) FREAK ME OUT. There are also reports of red, irritated eyelids while using this. NOT a good look.

On the "pro" side, the results advertised ARE impressive, but one should note that when you stop using the product, lashes do return to normal. Something to seriously consider, especially with the monthly price tag of $130.

I'm still on the fence about this the result worth the risk?
