Ok, so I've only been using Careprost (generic same as latisse) for 3.5 weeks, but lashes definitely got thicker and darker after about 2 weeks. Periodic itching first week or two, but it went away.
Can't tell if lashes are getting longer, but they look pretty good with mascara. I will update as I've used it longer.

After only three uses, I developed the eyelid darkening that Allergan warns about. On me, this will not pass for eyeliner; rather, it looks like mottled purple bruising, complete with veins, covering an area just wider than the application site. Not a good look! It "may be reversible," we'll see. Meanwhile, I'll never use this again.

I order my careprost online @ $12.57 a bottle with free shipping- it takes a bit to get here (Im on day 6 of waiting and expect another 6 days until delivery) but for the amount I save, as long as I don't run out in the meantime I'll be good to go. I love it ( tried latisse before) but my eyelashes to go a little wonky in direction when they get very long. Then I just have to back off a bit!

I ordered my first 2 bottles of Careprost from reading reviews here in MUA. So I'm here now to make a review about the product and it's pros and cons.

Careprost is an amazing product. I was very pessimistic about using it on my eyelids after reading the side effects. But in the end, it was all worth it!

1st Week - I had redness on my eyes, when I contacted where I got it from. They didn't respond at all. So I contacted a different online supplier. Crystal from crystalbeauty101 said that it might have been due to unwashed applicator or I was applying too much. So I became very careful with the application.

2nd week - Redness went away but still a little itchy. I was worried but kept going. After few days, itchiness just went away by itself.

3rd-7th Week - very minimal results were showing.

11th week - Whooaaahhhh... I know it sounds like I woke up one day with nice long and thick lashes! But my lashes are darn amazing! With the help of mascara, they show more volume and thickness! People from work really think I'm using fake lashes. That's how great this product is.

I'm on my 4th month and I still can't get over the fact that there's really a breakthrough like Careprost.

Careprost promised that in 4 months, if you follow the simple steps, you will see great results! So far for me, this product kept its promise :)))

Works. Addicted and I love it. Works on eyebrows too! Tip:use one drop on your finger and massage or rub over lash line to mKe product last longer. I feel like the sterile brushes are a waste.

I have been using Latisse (the name brand) for over 2 years. LOVE IT, and can't live without it !!! I have very sensitive skin, but have not had any problems at all with Latisse.

BTW - the mascara I can't live without is L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes (see my review). If you use both the primer and mascara on Latisse lashes, you'll look like you're wearing false eyelashes!

Latisse is expensive, so these are my tips on making it last a LOOOONG time. You will get the same great results as you would with nightly application. I'm 4 months into a 5 ml bottle, and expect to get at least another 6 months out of it (I'll update this when it's done to let you know how long it lasted).

FREQUENCY - every night for 6 weeks; then 2 or 3 x a week for maintenance

When you first start, use it every night. It takes 5 or 6 weeks for full results, so be patient. The first few weeks, you won't notice any difference at all.

Week 4 - I suddenly noticed a difference when I put on mascara (L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara).

Week 6 - I can't do nightly application anymore because my lashes will get too long (long enough that I would have to trim them - yeah, seriously).

After 6 weeks, I backed down to 2 or 3 x per week. Eyelashes have an ~ 6 week turnover rate, so don't get lazy and blow it off completely for a couple of weeks - you'll be starting all over again. Just apply it every other - or every 3rd day, or so.

-- the instructions say to put one drop on the brush and apply it to the 1st eyelid. Then a 2nd drop for the 2nd eyelid. Using my tricks, 1 drop works for both eyelids and your eyebrows.

1. Use the brushes they give you, but cut the bristles down so they are about 1/3 to 1/2 of their original length. Basically just long enough to pick up product and "line" your upper eyelid. If you use the brushes at the length they give you, you waste a huge amount of product.

2. Put one drop of product into the Latisse cap. Make sure the drop hits the bottom of the cap, and not any of the ridges. Tip the cap a bit, so the drop pools to one side. Dip the brush into the product.

3. Start on the first eye, and draw along your upper lash line like you would an eyeliner. Get as far as you can with the first eye. You may not get the first eye completely done. When the brush is dry, some of the product goes into just getting the brush wet the 1st time through.

4. Dip the brush into the cap again, and continue where you left off on applying it to your upper lash line. After the brush is damp, it picks up the product much better.

5. Just keep doing that until you've used up the 1 drop you put in the cap. I'm able to go over both upper eyelids twice. People have told me it works for their sparse eyebrows, but I didn't notice a difference when I tried it.

My review is for the generic careprost. Bought at crystalbeauty101, fast shipping, less than $30 for .3ml. Have used Latisse from S and had great success but stopped due to cost. My Lashers really show change in about a month. I'm 59 and better lashes make a huge difference. Ladies, take the plunge, go generic!

My review is for generic Careprost-I just ordered 3 bottles so Careprost has not been discontinued, so I don't understand why that review area says that. I have always had long lashes but I've noticed as I have aged-mid 50's now-they have seemed to just be thinning out. I wanted them to be thicker and full and Careprost has done that. Seriously, after only 2 and half weeks, I could see results. My lashes are soooo thick and dark and healthy looking. I hardly need much mascara at all, this is just crazy to me!! I have had no side effects from using this product. I think sometimes I feel my lids are a little red or itchy but in the morning, I don't notice any of that. I love the price of this, about $29 a bottle. Nice. I recommend this wholeheartedly, great for thinning lashes. I have also been seeing the length grow also, but I am stunned at the thickness and fullness of my eyes, worth $29 bucks.

This review is for Careprost, the generic version, which I order from online pharmacies. (MUA says that it's discontinued but it is not as far as I know) It is WONDERFUL. After so many years of using products that don't do what they promise to do, I was shocked by how well this worked! I'm on week 9 and my lashes are beautiful. They are very noticeably longer as well as fuller. I'm going to throw out my falsies because I won't be needing them any more! I also use use this to fill in a thin spot on my brow and it's done wonders there too. This has been the best $35 I've spent in a long time!!

I have not experienced discoloration or dryness, however, if I accidentally get a lot of it into my eye, it will be red the next morning. So try to keep it only on the lashline!

I apply this 1x a day at night by putting one drop onto a clean surface and use my eyeliner brush to line my lashline, exactly as I would put on eyeliner. One drop is enough for both eyes + my eyebrow thin spot.

I only started seeing results in week 6, so be patient!

OMG, this is like my must have beauty product! I have been using this for 4 months now and my eyelashes have grown insanely long and thick. Granted, I has decent eyelashes to begin with and am only 25 years old.. but I love dramatic lashes. I can get away with no mascara but when I do use my DiorShow primer and DiorShow Black Out mascara, my eyelashes look better than falsies! In fact, I had a photo shoot last week and the makeup artist put falsies on me but my real eyelashes were longer than them! She had to blend them in with mascara and said she had never had that problem before when applying falsies lol I get asked regularly if my eyelashes are real or extensions, even by the girl who waxed my brows! I swear by Latisse and will continue to maintain my precious lashes! Lol I have big brown eyes so I can't tell if any pigment changes and I think the skin at base of my lashes may have darkened a bit but it actually makes my eyes stand out even more without any makeup lol LOVE, LOVE, LOVE LATISSE! I highly recommend!
