Obvious Newsflash. I like lashes, I like brows. I like them big or not at all. But, I'm also a keen advocate of the "natural' look. On a daily basis, I can't be bothered with cumbersome falsies & the thought of sitting still for over an hour whilst lash extensions are applied sets my already challenged attention span on edge.
So, the idea of a serum I can whack on before I hit the hay is right up my street.
Enter Elizabeth Arden Prevage Clinical Lash + Brow Enhancing Serum (I do love a catchy name...)
Now, I've been giving this a good go. Nightly for about a month and a half. If I'm going to rave about a lash serum, It's going to get a proper going over.
We better start with an obligatory 'Before' shot. If you want a closer look, a conveniently timed mascara post here shows you with a without help.
They're not awful, they're just pretty standard lashes. But like the lash-a-holic I am, I wanted fluttery lashes to be proud of.
The serum applies like a liquid eyeliner. Just pop on your lash line before you go to sleep, or whenever it takes your fancy (It's seriously addictive). It's an almost seamless addition into my existing night time routine that makes it all the more appealing.
I stayed away from the brows as lets be honest, they're already fairly mighty on their own.
Now, are we ready for some seriously close up eyeballs. I'm as unsettled by it as you are.
They're longer, fuller and a little bit lusher. It's not an overnight success & I'd certainly contest the 'as little as 2 weeks' claim by EA but heck, I'm one happy bunny. It's exactly the result I wanted. A little bit of extra oomph without being too OTT. Maybe I'm born with it, you'll never know!
Add some mascara & the results really shine through. Just a quick slick of the same mascara used in the before post & it's an instant winner. It's filled in sparse bits and given my a fuller set of eyelashes. Shall I stop now?
Now, the price is a little steep ( RRP £85 for 4ml) but considering a set of good lash extensions can set you back at least that, It's an investment I'm willing to take. If you've got the patience, I'd take the plunge.
