It's new. Done by physician for now.

Has anyone tried it? The after pics of users are amazing. But I just wonder how long it lasts?

Hi, i just started using it a week ago..i made the mistake of putting on my lower lashes because nobody fully explained they just told me not to so of course that was not reason enough until i saw a bit of dark under my eyes and then i did some research and realized it turns your skin dark under eyes..i am going to keep using on top and just hope the dark goes away..

My friend has been using it and I actually thought she was wearing mascara. So, I guess it works. I have some other stuff I bought last time I was at the doctor for my botox appointment. I haven't been using it, but I guess I should. After all, I paid a boatload of money for it!

Ive been using Latisse for 3 weeks and have seen pretty good results. I had one bare spot on my lower eyelash line that has sprouted a few baby hairs. I found it much cheaper to order online here http://tinyurl.com/yh7dba7 (broken link)
for $12.50 the $100 the dr wanted was WAY out of my budget!

I wanted to try it till I heard it can turn your iris brown. I have green eyes and I like them that way.

There is another product that they sell at the drug store called Rapid Lash (?) that is around $50.00. I wonder if it's the same thing, but weaker?

Yes, it does say on the commercial that it can turn your eyes brown. I'd love longer/thicker/darker lashes, but I want my eyes to stay green. Anything that can make your eyes change color also makes me wonder about other possible health risks...

Yeah that's true, altho I'm sure if my eyes were already brown I'd try it. Can your eyelashes ever be too thick?

I have some from my Dr. but still have not used it. I have blue eyes and am afraid they will turn brown - but the Dr. told me it is mostly people with green or hazel eyes that turn brown - strange, isnt it?

No kidding...I think this is almost a given. I read somewhere that one has to continue to use it permanently or your eyelashes will revert to their natural state.

But I don't understand why anyone would take even the slightest chance with their eyes. It's just not worth it IMO, especially if you happen to be the one who "discovers" another associated health risk.

The side effects refer to glaucoma patients who drip the med directly in their eyes. The tiny amount you use on your eyelashes really has no chance of side effects. Have you ever read the side effects on the label of an asprin or tylenol bottle? Tons of sides listed that are very rare and you'd need to take pounds of the drug to experience them.

That said I've been using latisse for 3 months and love it.No way can I afford $120 a month so I've been ordering it online from here [url=http://bit.ly/9upj6r]How Much Does Latisse Cost | Latisse Info[/url] It's only $12.50 for the SAME THING those Dr's are ripping you off for $120. Latisse is only generic Bimatoprost marked up 10x so the Dr's make a humongous profit. Just think - why do they want you to buy a prescription product IN their office instead of the pharmacy??? You don't buy antibiotics in the Dr's office you get them from the pharmacy.

Sorry for the rant I'm just tired of being ripped off. I've ordered from that place 3x. It takes 2-3 weeks but for the price it's worth it.
