OK, is anyone else freaked right the hell out by Latisse? Have you seen these ads? I was watching Hulu tonight, minding my own damn business, then out of the blue I get an ad for Latisse, the only FDA approved treatment for inadequate or not enough lashes. Now, first of all, if you need someone to define “inadequate” for you, then you are not old/smart enough to be making any decisions about applying prescription-strength glaucoma drugs to your lash line for cosmetic purposes. Seriously, folks, when did that become advanced vocabulary? WHEN? WHEN, I ASK YOU?
Now, moving on to the actual mechanics of this drug. Even a little bit of surface research will tell you that far from being a drug designed to remedy the imaginary problem of not having enough eyelashes, Latissa is a strong and fairly dangerous glaucoma drug that just HAPPENS to have the side effect of making your lashes thicker, as well as PERMANENTLY DYEING YOUR EYES. OH yes, you heard that right. Permanently. Dyeing. Your. Eyes.
Thanks, but no thanks, Brooke Shields.
