*Flutter* your lashes, beautiful!!

Hi y'all!!! Ok, ok. So I am going to do this review I have promised. So, I need to give you a bit about my lash history. I am not so blessed to have the long, thick dark lashes that some girls have. Instead, I have short, wimpy sparse lashes that can never hold a curl! (Just my luck, right?) The first product I have ever used was the cheap Ardell Lash Growth Accelerator that you can find at RiteAid or other drug stores for approximately $5. Sounds cheap enough, right? Well, ladies, you get what you PAY FOR. That piece of sh*t does not work! In fact, it irritated my eye so much that I actually started crying...but not because I was frustrated, but literally...my eyes kept welling up with tears. So after that fiasco, I decided to give my lashes (and most importantly, eyes) a much-needed break. While the Ardell Lash Growth Accelerator did not work on my eyes, I did find another use for it. You can use this product to "tame" your wild eyebrows. If you're like me, I sleep all over the place throughout the night so when I wake up in the morning, my eyebrows are FUNKKKKY. Haha, so I just brush this serum lightly over my eyebrows. Works like a charm!!

Ok, so after a few months. I still felt let-down about my eyelash serum search not going so well. So I decided, a quitter never wins!!! Right?? So I ventured out on my continuing journey to find the HG status product! That was when I kept hearing about Enormous Lash. After doing a bit of research, I decided to pay $100 to see if it truly did live up to its claim.

I kept seeing this one particular picture popping up everywhere with the Enormous Lash advertisements (see below). And while I knew deep down, that it could have been photoshopped or exaggerated, I just wanted LONG, thick lashes, goddamnit. Lol, so I eagerly awaited my package to arrive!

It says that you ought to wait about 3 months before you see any TRUE results. But some people see results in as little as 30 days. I used it religiously every night. It is basically a colorless, odorless serum that is applied am/pm to the lash line like liquid eyeliner. The first two weeks, while I did not notice any truly dramatic results, I did feel as though my eyelashes were more nourished and conditioned. Overall, I did not feel as though this product was worth my $100. It's good to keep your lashes more supple and conditioning, but did not produce any longer lashes as its claims were stated. Enormous Lash does come with a 100% 12 month money back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, return the product with your receipt or packaging slip for a prompt, full refund less shipping. So that was one good thing about this product!

With another disappointment yet again thrown in my face. At this point, I WAS REALLLY ABOUT TO JUST GIVE UP FOR GOOD. I kept thinking...I heard about Revitalash and Jan Marini. But unfortunately, with all of the health scares about prostaglandin as an ingredient and causing blindness and darkening of the iris...I wasn't able to tempt fate with something so fragile as my eye health! I don't know about you guys, I am pretty vain but if it has to compromise my health any way whatsoever...FORGET ABOUT IT!!!

As they say, third time's a charm, right? By this time, I have truly, truly found my TRUE LOVE.

Here's what I found on their website, that might clarify any questions you may have:

Q:
Ok, I’m tired of the hype... Is LiLash really any different than similar products on the market?

LiLash Purified Eyelash Stimulator contains a potent lash enhancing factor and then fortified with strengthening botanicals to further protect and stimulate the appearance of longer eyelashes. Our goal is to free you from the burden of clumpy, caked mascaras by making your own lashes appear naturally longer—safely and effectively. Our chemists created LiLash to be faster acting, easier to use, and non-irritating.

IMPORTANT: Do not confuse LiLash Purified Eyelash Stimulator with other conditioners or enhancers that simply contain “proteins” and “vitamins.” LiLash is a true cosmeceutical with a clinically tested active ingredient.

Q: In terms of cost, what separates LiLash from similar products on the market?

LiLash is a premier cosmeceutical product developed with cutting-edge technology, a true active ingredient, and a clinically test purified formula. In fact, LiLash is the best value of all comparably priced eyelash enhancement products on the market.

As always, if an eyelash conditioner promises to give you longer appearing eyelashes at a fraction of the cost, be cautious. Due to the cost of concentrated active ingredients, testing, and technology, it is nearly impossible to create a true lash conditioner and stimulator for less than LiLash.

Q: Which botanical extracts in LiLash work to restructure weak, brittle Lashes?

Prunus Amygdalus seed extract is a glyco-peptide from Sweet Almond and acts as a natural restructuring agent for hair fibers. It increases shine, volume, and manageability and protects the fiber from harsh environmental pollutants. It’s perfect for conditioning damaged hair and producing lush, thick, longer eyelashes.

Lupinus Albus (White Lupine) seed extract is used to control the hair cycle by regulating hormone balance, reactivating hair’s microcirculation, and stimulating cell metabolism. The properties of White Lupine have been credited with delayed hair loss and favor re-growth.

Q: I have heard that Parabens have been linked to health risks. If that is true, why are they used in LiLash?

Parabens are one of the most widely utilized and mildest preservatives in any cosmetic formula. Despite a moderate amount of negative publicity, recent scientific studies have proven that there is no link whatsoever to any adverse reactions when food grade parabens are used as directed in cosmetic products. The creators of LiLash are highly trained chemical and cosmetic specialists dedicated to your safety first.

Q: Why do other eyelash conditioners use salt in their product but LiLash doesn’t?

Think of your hair after a day at the beach. Sodium chloride (salt) is very damaging to hair. But most eyelash conditioners were originally formulated as eye drops. Then other companies put the formula in a cosmetic base and started using them on eyelashes. This method doesn’t promote healthy conditioned hair; it contributes to dry brittle hair, frequent breakage, and irritated eyes. It’s simply counterproductive as an eyelash conditioning agent. We removed the salt and added unique botanical extracts and vitamins to nurture and support the growth of strong and long eyelashes.

Q: How is LiLash applied?

LiLash Purified Eyelash Stimulator is applied similar to eyeliner, along the base of the lashes. After application, allow the product to dry for several minutes. Once dry, apply your normal mascara—that is, until you don’t need it any more! LiLash’s unique formula means you can use it morning or night, according to your specific beauty regimen. That this doesn’t interfere with your regular mascara and eye makeup is just one more thoughtful benefit that puts LiLash above the rest. See the instruction sheet accompanying your product for more detailed application instructions.

Q: How long will it take to start seeing results with LiLash?

Often, eyelashes begin to change in as little as two weeks. Watch as your lashes become lustrous, thick, and full over time. Most women report needing less and less mascara over time to achieve the same sexy look! At 4-6 weeks, your eyes will really start to pop!

Q: Since LiLash works so well on the eyelashes can I use it to make my eyebrows appear thicker and fuller?

While LiLash was specifically formulated for eyelashes, many women have had successful results using LiLash on their brows.

Q: Can I wear eyelash extensions while using LiLash?

Great news for eyelash extension wearers. We know you love the look but hate the breakage. We receive constant feedback from extension wearers who tell us that as Lilash thickens and strengthens their lashes they experience less natural lash breakage and greater extension support.

Q: Will LiLash irritate my eyes?

LiLash was formulated to be non-irritating to your eyes from the start. Hundreds of our customers have told us that LiLash was much easier on their eyes than similar lash conditioning products. IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Please make sure to apply Lilash to the skin of the eyelid and not the eyelashes themselves. Reports of irritation have occurred simply due to incorrect application. Some people, however, may have more sensitive eyes than others. If you experience irritation, reduce the use of LiLash. If irritation persists, discontinue using the product completely.

Some people experience skin discoloration at the base of the eyelid. If you find that this occurs and it bothers you, discontinue the use of LiLash. Any darkening or discoloration that occurs is reversible.

Q: Can I be allergic to LiLash?

As with any cosmetic product, some people may experience an allergic reaction to one or more of its components. If you know you are allergic to an ingredient in LiLash, please do not use this product. If you think you are having an allergic reaction, discontinue use of the product and consult your physician immediately.

Q: How long will a tube of LiLash last?

Application instructions advise you to use LiLash for 6-10 weeks for maximum results. But due to its intensely concentrated formula, LiLash continues to stimulate and condition, giving you the appearance of longer eyelashes, for up to 6 months. A tube of LiLash should last about 5 to 6 months if used once daily. After the full desired effect of LiLash is achieved we recommend maintainance application of 2 to 3 times/week.

Q: Has LiLash been tested on animals?

LiLash has never been tested on animals.

Q: What am I guaranteed with LiLash?

LiLash guarantees results! After extensive clinical testing and many satisfied customers, we know LiLash is a potent stimulator, conditioner and lash enhancing product. We are so confident that you will be pleased with the results that we offer a 90-day, money-back guarantee. If you don’t agree that LiLash is the fastest-acting and least irritating cosmeceutical eyelash stimulator and conditioner on the market, we will return 100% of your purchase price. Please see our legal notice for more information.

  1. Yes I am. But wow, you're one of the first to ever guess that straight off the bat:D A lot of people say other things like "Filipino" or some weird mixes like "Hawaiian" and "Blah blah" etc.
    What about you? You look mixed Caucasian/Asian? Which is a really pretty mix [:

    I know, right? Imagine WORKING there...that would be so bad for me. I would just shop after every shift -_- hahah, one of the reasons I didn't want to apply there.
