I love this stuff! I have fine, thin lashes - which I pick at occasionally. After using this stuff for about a week, the bald spot I had was filled. I couldn't believe it! There is a little bit of sting if you get this in your eye, but I feel like this has never really been an issue if you apply it carefully. I could tell a difference within the first few days. My lashes didn't grow astronomically but I could tell that my mascara was going on much better and that my lashes were actually holding a curl! After using it for a few weeks I could tell that my lashes had grown a bit, and that they were longer and healthier. My only complaint is that whenever I wash my face (I use L'Oreal Go 360 Clean with the little rubber scrublet) I would always notice more lashes falling out onto my face scrubber. I know this serum stimulates the lash cycle and there is no need to worry - but it was a bit unsettling to see my lashes falling out! Also, if you apply this above your top lash line and then saturate your lashes with this, you might have difficulty getting it off. After applying eyeshadow (in the morning..I apply this before bed!) I realized that the layer of liquid above my lashline dries and that you have to peel it off. I also notice a bit of stringy, thin rubbery fibers that are stuck to my lashes in the morning. I always have to take these off before I apply my mascara - or else it looks a bit funny. Overall, this product has really helped my lashes look so much better. For the price, it's so worth it!
MegaLash Serum so far isn't that bad. I've noticed some growth on both my upper and lower lash lines. Not an amazing growth, but some longer lashes. My lashes are blonde, so without mascara, it's very difficult to see them.
I use this Serum at night. It does sting if you accidentally open your eyes and some gets in. It's not a horrible stinging and squeezing your eye shut tighter a few times will cure that. Also, dabbing the excess at the corners will help. The brush is easy to use to swipe across your lash line, and it dries quickly enough in a few minutes.
Does it really help? I believe so. I can see my lashes without any mascara. I can curl my lashes now. That's a big help. I can use mascara on my lower lashes where before I had difficulty. So if that's any indication, it does work.
I've looked at the photos of the the other MUA'ers that have these huge lashes that have grown with these products and I wonder. I doubt mine will ever look that long with a product like this. All I'm looking for is some growth so that I can put on mascara evenly and fully without using a pack of q-tips.
It's inexpensive, and that's a plus. I've been using it over a month now and the bottle is nowhere near empty. No lash loss, no eye color change. Frankly for the price, it's a win-win situation. I bought it on sale at CVS and figured I couldn't go wrong. I'm happy I bought it and tried it. Next, I'm going to try another one that MUA'ers think is so great with their reviews at a higher price point. I've tried PTR's (which is super expensive) and wasn't too pleased with the results there, it took ages to see any results), this one I see results for a fraction of the price, so next I'll be going middle of the road.
I've also used it on my brows which I see a definite lush growth in and I'm happy in that. They weren't thin to begin with, but I figured I'd swipe the excess across my brows out of curiosity. It works on them, too.
I'd tell others to give it a try, it's that inexpensive.
On Paula's Choice, she says that one of the ingredients, pentapeptide-17 is also one of the ingredients in Marini Lash which sells for 160 dollars. According to her site, she tells her consumers to try Wet'N'Wild for the cost altho she says that ingredient hasn't any benefits for lashes. Then again, she gave it an average review. Go figure.
It hasn't hurt my lashes at all. My lashes appear stronger and slightly lengthened. I'm not expecting a miracle here for a few bucks. I gave it a try and wasn't disappointed.
I had very short, thin, pale brown/dark blonde eyelashes. After using this product, I have noticed that I now have more eyelashes than before, but they are not noticeably longer or thicker. There are just more lashes. However, for about $6 I can't really complain! The product does burn if it accidentally gets in your eye. I also wear contacts, and oftentimes leave them in while applying makeup (I can't see to save my life without my contacts or eyeglasses), and when the product has gotten in my eyes, I haven't had to take out my contacts and rewash them to relieve the burning, which is rare.
Overall, this product didn't do exactly what I wanted it to do, but is still worth the price.
This may sound stupid, but I got it at 9$ I know, over-priced. I'll buy it somewhere else next time. It's still awesome though. As others have said, the angled brush is hard to use, but still manageable. For some reason, my lashes on my left and right are noticeably different. The ones on my left are lush, but a little shorter. While the ones on my right are longer, but not even close to as lush. It's confusing, since I do believe I use the same amount of product on both. I apply as I would if I was using mascara. I tried applying it on my lids and letting it fall, but then it just falls into my eyes and cause them to sting like crazy. I sometimes poke my eyes with the brush as well. It was my first lash serum I have ever used. It really works and I'm glad I tried it!
I didn't think this is was going to do anything. I originally went to the drugstore for the Rimmel Lash Accelerating Serum but they were out. I definitely want longer lashes but not enough to buy RapidLash or Latisse. I saw this on sale for half off at around $3 so I though why not! The brush is a little hard to use, it looks more like an eyebrow brush than an eyeliner brush, it has angled tip. But it's nothing I can't work with. I only use this at night because I have really sensitive eyes and this stuff can be a little irritating after a few days of use but luckily I haven't had any burning or problems getting it in my eyes.
The actual effectiveness of this product is great! It's been about a week and a half and i've already seen a noticeable increase in length and volume of my lashes. I don't know how this compares to other growth serums because this is the first i've tried but for the prices it's completely worth it.
I am VERY impressed with this product! I started using it about 10 days ago. In the first couple of days I forgot to use it, so I have only used it for about 6 days in a row. Also, I have only used the serum (not the mascara), and only at night. I apply by swiping the brush across the top of my lashes and along my eyelid as I would apply eyeliner. I wipe the rest on my brow before re-dipping and moving on to the other eye. I'm not too precise, but I do make sure my lashes are saturated. I'll admit that I was not expecting much considering that this is the third lash enhancing product I have used (I previously tried the L'Oreal serum and the Physician's Formula silver eye pen, with no noticable results). But I am really astonished by this wet n' wild serum! My eyelashes are starting to appear longer, and definately thicker. At first I thought maybe it was wishful thinking on my part, but two of my coworkers have commented in the last 2 days on how long my lashes look. One of them actually said "you have a million lashes!". I have naturally sparse, blonde, and stubby lashes so this is pretty amazing. When I take my mascara off, I run my fingers over my lashes and can feel the extra length. They also seem to be stronger (No fallout when washing my face). I am sold on this serum and can't wait to see what kind of results I have after a month!
One day after writing this review, I woke up to find that I had sprouted a few eyelashes ABOVE my natural lash line, for almost a double lash effect! It doesn't look freakish, though. It's not like the extra lashes are sprouting all the way up on my eyelid, more like right on the lashline. Strange, but in a good way!
This is a great product. After reading the reviews here, I decided to give it a try and found it at CVS for $6.59. My eyelashes are already very long, but have been getting more sparse with age; so, I was looking for something that would give me more volume. I've been using it for about two weeks, and it's already made a significant difference. My lashes are definitely getting thicker, and my mascara is applying beautifully and evenly. I can't wait to see what this is like in a few weeks. Fuller lashes help keep a more youthful appearance, so this is a great product for those of us who are hitting our 30's and up!
I apply it twice daily to my lashes and the base of the lashes. I have accidentally gotten a it in my eye, and I have to say, I didn't think it stung that badly at all. It wasn't pleasant, but nothing that was a problem. It didn't leave my eye red or anything, and I just blotted it out and it was over.
I started with Physician's Formula Lash Serum which helped somewhat with my lashes but more with the patchy spots in my eyebrows. Since this is a better price, I decided to try it. The good effects I had with PF have remained. I use it like an eyeliner at the base of my upper lashes so it does not get into my eyes. Since all hair is dead tissue, the serum needs to be on the skin to come in contact with the hair follicles.
First off, to those who claim that getting the serum in your eye stings... Freaking DUH! Don't get it in your eye, it's not meant to be there!
Sorry, had to get that out. Overall, my review is the same as most.. For the price, totally worth it. It's been a week and I see fuller, longer lashes.... Can't wait to see in weeks to come. Don't waste money on stupid expensive ones that do the exact same thing... This is a good buy. I use it in the morning and at night on clean lashes, and have only seen great results. my lashes hold a curl now, and mascara makes the, look fabulous. This product is just what it should be, in my opinion for an awesome price!
I can't say enough good things about this product! Before use I had stubbly little lashes that were brittle! There wasn't a good enough mascara to make my lashes look anything but sub-par. I found the serum at my local CVS for $6.99 and figured why not?
Packaging: It's simple, clean, cute looking. The bottle has little markings like a syringe does in a clean blue and white scheme. Though the bottle has a little brush instead of a mascara spool...it does make application tricky but not impossible.
Application: I apply it twice a day, before bed and after I wash my face in the morning. I run the brush sideways along my lash line and gently paint it on my lashes, being careful of leaving any globs. It does dry clear, but can leave little flakies, sort of like a hair gel would. Not bad ones, just enough to jack up your mascara if you over apply.
OUCH! factor: A lot of reviewers posted about the serum burning when it gets in your eyes. It does, but not badly. I just blinked it out and used some Visine to reduce any residual redness. All in all, on a scale of 1-10, it's a 4 or 5.
Price: $6.99 isn't bad! I mean, compare it to Latisse and other brands....heck, even L'Oreal is $12.99! And you get a decent sized bottle too! All in all-MAJOR WIN! :)
Bottom line, I will definitely be repurchasing and recommending!
