Lashes to lashes

Whether you're into extensions, lengthening mascaras or lash growth treatments, lashes are hot right now. But jaded consumers that we are, it's easy to see lash growth products as a whole lot of hogwash. Do they work? Are they worth the often steep investment? Before you go out and spend your hard-earned cash, check out our lineup of the most popular brands out there, and what our research has discovered.


Price: $99

What they say: This breakthrough, all-natural formula of biotin (that's a fancy word for essential vitamins) and arginine (the fancy word for natural amino acids) and iris extract (natural Oriental medicine complex extracts) promotes the natural growth of healthy lashes. This product is uniquely formulated by cosmetic scientists.

What users say: Reader Annie tried Lashfood, and after a week, began to notice that her lashes were shinier and thicker. "Putting on the product did not irritate my eyes or contacts (no itchiness, redness or swelling), but I did notice there were certain times when my eyes felt a little dry; however, that might have to be ruled out due to winter weather. I was happy with the subtle results, though I didn't really see visible growth in my lashes. After the second and third weeks, my lashes were still thick and shiny, but if LashFood did help my lashes grow, it was not a noticeable difference." So, healthy and shiny, yes -- longer? Maybe not.
