I just heard about this medication the other day, and I have to say I think it should "win the prize" for "most stupid reasons to risk side-effects". One of the side effects is that people with light eyes may develop brown spots on the irises. Another one (may not be permanent) is darkened eyelids. I don't know what the other side-effects are because I stopped listening after "brown spots on light eyes". Would anyone even consider this stuff? (I've always been happy enough with volumizing mascara.)
Funny I saw the same commercial and thought the same exact thing. I think that Brooke Shields or someone like that was the spokesperson for the medication. It is so inane I have to agree with you.
My lashes are about as skimpy as they come, but I've had no problem getting really good results with the right mascara. My sister and daughter are the same. (My son, on the other hand, has always had the most amazing "giraffe lashes". Apparently, giraffe lashes skip a generation and only get passed to one offspring. ).
yes, and only the boys get it!!!!
funny about this, I was just talking about this stuff to a friend..we think the same thing...stoooopid!!!! My eyelashes are short, thin and blonde...invisible... They do thier job of keeping dirt out of my eyes just the same!
I have glaucoma (an eye disease) and have used drops for it for years - I have very long eyelashes and apparently it is a known side-effect!
I don't recommend getting glaucoma just to grow long eyelashs - just stick some falsies on
My sister used something similar. If she wasn't very careful where she put the cream, eyelashes would sprout from ALL around the eye area. It later got taken off the market as it was found to potentially cause blindness. Oh, the vanity.
I saw the commercial recently, and was not in any way impressed to try something as dangerous as this. Reminds me of the liquids used to enlarge lips - what happens if it accidentaly touches the tongue? Yikes!
I would not care to try it either. For some reason I tend to think that taking a chance with your eyes is a pretty risky proposition.
It was originally a medicine for glaucoma, when patients began experiencing eye lash growth, they tweaked it and re-marketed it for that purpose. While I wouldn't take it, to each his own. Its like $90-$140 for like a 3 month application. But if you don't buy mascara the rest of your life, I dunno... maybe? But still not for me
Half-witted thing to put on your eyes, I reckon!
I have thin, short, white eyelashes, and look like a rabbit. So I wear mascara (-:

There are many products on the market that promise super long eye lashes. Being a budget-minded shopper, I am currently using Lash Stiletto mascara by Maybelline. I pretty pleased with it, but am wondering if any of you...
