I just bought the Revlon eyelash curler and WOW it is good! Curls well with a good squeeze, doesn't pinch or pull any hair. Use before mascara.
Thanks,
Michelle  ;D
Looking into the eyelash prescription, wondering side affects and danger so close to the eye?

Yay!  I am glad you like it :)  It works just as good as some of those high-end ones sold in Sephora and department stores. 

Latisse (Lumigan) was originally intended to be used as an eyedrop to reduce eye pressure in glaucoma patients.  Patients noticed their eyelashes became thicker, darker, and longer after several weeks of use.  There are side-effects, however.  If you do not have brown eyes, your eyes may turn that color with prolonged use.  My eyes are dark brown/black, so this isn't an issue for me.  Your eyelids may also darken.  If mine have, I did not notice it because I have a light olive complexion and that area of my face has been dark since puberty--concealer is my friend. 

There is no need to pay $120 for Latisse.  Insurance does not cover it.  There may be some exceptions with chemo patients, but that is pretty much it.  I use Careprost that I purchased from an online pharmacy in India (All Day Chemist) for 10 bucks a pop ($25 flat-rate shipping).  You do not need a prescription to purchase Careprost from ADC.  I am happy with Careprost.  It works just as well as Latisse which I purchased once before I knew better.  I even asked my pharmacist about this route before I ordered, and she walked from behind the counter and told me I had the right idea. 

I just wanted to add that I am very cautious in general with meds.  I have asthma and I fork over cash at Tar-jay every 3 months for these meds, even though I can get the generics at ADC.  I only use ADC for Careprost and Retin-A.  I am using retin-a for my uneven forehead wrinkles.  The AN side is smooth as silk; the other side is a bit wrinkly.  Admittedly, this may be a feeble attempt on my part to avoid Botox.

You are so sweet - I was hoping that they haven't changed packaging - I am seeing different Revlon BLACK ones that I think said NEW...Actually, it wasn't Target, it was DVS (went there for PediaSure...).  I certainly haven't been out shopping for a week now... ;)  I was wondering about Ulta - just haven't gotten there yet!

Kaybo, I got mine in Michigan while visiting my brother. I got it at a Target.
Revlon - black with a red pad (where your eyelashes touch).

Does anyone else notice when there eyelashes are curled,  the AN eye burns more during the day ?  I used the curler 3 days in a row & had to stop because of the increased burning !  I'm a little disappointed b/c I liked having them curled !

Nancy,

That's the shade I use also.  Sometimes I will just use the touch of base all on its own with no shadow.  I hope you bought when it was bonus time.  That's when I make my purchases.  It makes me feel like a kid in a candy store with a goodie bag.  I so happy I could help.

This is my very first post, so I am getting right to the important stuff -  eyelashes!  The ointment seems to make my mascara run (even waterproof).  Any tips?
