    I notice my eye lashes are thinning. Is there a nutritional base to maintaining thick lashes?

    I can't be the only one who thinks they are sexy.

    Jan Marini came out with the first eyelash 'grower'. Since then, Latisse has gotten really good reviews. It's gotten by far better than most. Everything has came down in cost considerably since a few years ago. Average on Latisse is about $120-$135.

    The problems with lash 'growers': I've seen alot of women with darkening on their eyelids (brown spots), but that's easily covered with a little concealer. Also, the eyelashes seem to grow in rows possibly on top of the original row of eyelashes. So they get really bushy and/or wire-like (something that I don't find attractive).

    As far as conditioning.....Hmmm. I know Elizabeth Arden is probably the best out there because of the 'ceramide' complex they use. However, the ceramide thing is pretty outdated. It's been reproduced by L'Oreal some time ago so It's available mass market now.

    CHANEL's eyelash conditioner is not bad at all though. Pricey but makes them pretty soft. Mirabella has a good one too. I've seen some volume results with that, but not as much as Arden or even better yet, Latisse.

    Personally, I don't have that problem. I tint/color mine once a week and they look fine. I don't wear mascara because I think it looks disgusting on guys. If you did want separation go for clear mascara (Lancome has one that's decent).

    Sorry to bore you with all the cosmetic talk, but I just know ALOT about makeup. You could also just try a really gentle cleanser (ERNO LASZLO has the best) every night.
    HINT* Look up Eyelash Mites; You'll be amazed!

    Good Luck!

    Hey, the eyelashes could also be getting paler; ya gettin' old, boy!

    I think when someone gets the hots for you your eyelashes won't be given a thought. icon_wink.gif

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidNice fuzzy stubbly armpit at 4:00. It really complements the tutorial of making lashes beautifully longer. icon_lol.gif


    My thoughts exactly. False lashes are really time consuming and should only be for special occasions.

    ONE more tip: You could always get lash extensions. They look pretty good but are alot of work, upkeep, and $$$$.
