Longer Lashes

A medical breakthrough that women may be interested in, the FDA has approved the first drug to promote eyelash growth.

The product is called "Latisse" and is made by Allergan. It contains the active ingredient in a glaucoma drug, but is used differently. Like an eyeliner, Latisse gets dabbed along the lash line on the upper eyelids. The company says that longer, thicker and darker lashes can result within four months of use.

Allergan says Latisse may cause a darkening of the eyelid skin and an increased brown pigmentation in the eye.

    You have no idea how many women are walking around with fake eyelashes...this is going to fly off the shelves unless it prescription. *tip* Vaseline at night does the same thing with out the pain of falsies.

    People wonder why drugs are so high? This could well be the reason. Think of all the money that was spent for this wonderful drug! Let's all rush out and get some to use! I think all of us need longer lashes. Why, with longer lashes, no one will be able to see anything else that's wrong with us that we don't have drugs for because all the research money was used for the longer lashes!!

    Why dont they spend more time on things like finding a cure for CANCER and other things that are MUCH MORE important that EYELASHES? This is ridiculous!
