Not personally, but a lady I work with started using it. It’s a subtle difference but there is a difference.

YES, and it’s amazing!  I notice a huge difference and my close friends have noticed as well.  My lashes are definitely longer, fuller, and naturally curl up now.  I’m still going to wear fake eyelashes at my wedding to enchance them, but this is something I will likely continue moving forward.  There are risks though, but I’ve had no bad reactions.

I haven’t personally used it, but I’m familiar with the medication.  I’m sure you’ve read all about the potential side effects, but for me the one that stuck out was that it can cause permanent changes in eye color, eyelid, and eyelashes.  If you’re going to use it, it’s definitely good to start it quite a while before your wedding – it can take months to years to see an effect.

I am the first person who is willing to take risks for beauty.  But THIS?  Not something I’m willing to do.  Falsies look just as good, are cheap and easy to put on.  It’s not worth blindness just for pretty lashes. 

I don’t mean to get on my soapbox and yell here, I will stepdown.

I’ve been using it for a year now and L.O.V.E. it!!!  It has worked so well for me that I’ve had make-up artists comment about and they think I’m wearing eyelash extensions.  My daughter is also saying “your eyelashes are soooo long – I’m jealous!”.  lol.   I was concerned about the potential side effects as well since I have very light skin and light blue eyes.  But I spoke with my doctor and he had never had a case nor heard of a specific case of iris discoloration or even lid darkening.  So I took a gamble and I’m sooooooo glad I did – I can’t even tell you!  I’ve had absolutely NO side effects.  And I’m very, very allergic to eyelash, nail glue and the like so I can’t wear false eyelashes or my eyelids swell up and get red and itchy.

I had an issue with a laser treatment for my acne scars and getting a little bit of my eyebrow taken off. Needless to stay I was furious so she gave me lastisse to use on them. My mom had skin cancer and her eyebrow was messed up as well. We both used it there and it worked great. I had some extra so I used it on my eyelashes and although I wasn’t doing it for very long or very often I still saw a difference! I loved it!

I’ve never used this particular brand, but I have used a different one. It worked amazingly!!! My eyelashes are already decently long, but when using this product my eyelashes were touching my brow bone. One thing I will say. One of the side effects was possible permanent discoloration of the skin where the product is applied. I do have that now, though it is less noticeable 2 years later.

The chance of it changing your eye colour is slim to none I believe, but it still does make me wary of it in the future.
