Lengthen your eyelashes naturally

Updated on February 24, 2012

How many times do we spend extra bucks for buying double lengthening or volumizing mascaras?? How many of you have spent tons of money on eyelash extensions that look so fake??

What is. Latisse??

About 4 to 5 months ago I saw this ad at my eye doctor clinic. Its called Latisse.

This is a drug to cure eye pressure problems It costs more than $100 if paid out of pocket and cheaper if paid by insurance. I'm sure while testing this drug they found that the subjects this drug was being tested on had significant increase in their eyelash length. good for Latisse, they could market their product to a huge audience like you and me who want some length.

All sounds nice but it is known to darken the eye color to brown or black if you have light eyes. now who would want that??

There are high end brand and drugstore brand products as well like L'oreal eyelash serum that are similar to Lattise but in less concentration. Of course these products also work as intended but are they worth speding your money if they change your eye color??

Pros: Long looking lashes in just weeks.

Cons: Changes eye color

Price: Month's supply costs more than $100.

Vaseline Petroleum Jelly

I have finally found my holy grail of long and voluminous lashes.

How it works:

In general eyelashes grow to a certain length and when they start to get heavy at base, they fall off and new lash grows. This is usually a 3 week or so cycle. If you can provide strength to the base then the lash continues to grow longer. Vaseline conditions and nourishes the eyelash follicle providing strength to it and making eyelashes longer and thicker.

How to apply:

At night before sleeping, rub a small amount of Vaseline between your thumb and index finger. Then run your upper lashes between your thumb and index finger. Also apply it on your eyelids where you apply eyeliner. Repeat the same on lower lashes as if you were applying mascara with your index finger.

You don't need to apply a thick layer of it. You will notice a difference in a few weeks that your eyelashes will grow long and you will also notice new growth of hair that you thought never existed. You may also apply it around your eye area to prevent future wrinkles.

Final Verdict:

I have personally had sparse eyelashes on my lower lashline and after a couple of weeks of using Vaseline I have volume and length. I now have to look down while applying mascara and still look down till it dries because now they easily touch my eyelids when curled. Its funny.. I don't know if Kim Kardashian uses fake eyelashes on her lower lashline but I can now compare mine to hers. I wish I had a before picture for you to compare.

Pros: Long, volumized eyelashes that are strong and highly nourished. It also prevents future wrinkles around eyes by making the eye area nourished, soft and supple.

Cons: Since it is a waxy product your eyelids will become more oily than before. I have noticed the morning after the Vaseline application, my eyeshadow creased on my eyelids even after wearing the primer.

Price: $4 for a 25 oz jar that will last you about or maybe more than an year.
