Project Va Va Voom: Latisse Lashes

I finally caved in and spent $120 on a small 3ml bottle of Latisse. But in my defense, it was a buy one get one free deal from Allergan (the manufacturer). While working for an opthalmologist, I've witnessed many glaucoma patients get intense results from this product, but unfortunately for them and for me, once you start to use Latisse you have to continue or else your lashes will revert to it's original state. My only consultation is that I might in the end saving on mascara and falsies and of course, the time I spend applying mascara every morning!

Here I am on day 1 without any mascara. I am blessed with pretty long and curly lashes (for an Asian girl) to begin with, thanks to my mum cutting my eyelashes with scissors when I was young. (no joke!)
Here are my lashes with mascara but pre-Latisse. Already looks like falsies, so I am really excited to see what Latisse has in store for me!

Here I am at day 3. Is it my imagination or does my lashes look longer and thicker already? The doc told me it would take at least a month to show results, but I almost feel like I'm already getting some results!

For those of you who are curious, this is what the package looks like. You get a 3mL eye drop bottle plus 60 applicators. Ideally, you're supposed to use one applicator per night for 30 days. I was warned that the bottle will last up to two months, so I use one applicator for both eyes per night. Some people like to use their own eyeliner brush, but I'm not picky and have no problem with the provided applicators.
All in all, I'm very excited to see what kind of results I'll get! I'm still sad that it'll cost me $120 every month, but it's expensive being a girl!

Stay tuned for more pictures along the way!
