What’s an unsung makeup hero? For me, it’s an oftentimes underrated makeup morsel, a permanent collection product that scoots under the radar screen of many makeup lovers but regularly rocks my world. The long-running Unsung Heroes series features some of my favorites.
Behold, my latest lash obsession! — Rodan + Fields Enhancements Last Boost.
Since I started using it, my lashes, which peaced-the-eff-out after I gave birth to Connor, are longer, thicker and so much lusher now, and the difference is DRAMATIC. Shout-out to the gals who noticed in these mascara pics.
I’ve used other OTC lash serums before, but I’ve never seen this caliber of results. Too bad it’s so expensive ($155 per tube, OMG).
For the first time ever, though, my lashes actually curl up at the ends, and now when I wear mascara, my lashes touch the my lenses when I wear my glasses.
WHAT THE WHAT?!
Yeah, they do, which is one of those makeup problem I’ve always wanted to experience, but was never able to due to my previous lash limitations.
Take that, genetics! After decades of wanting to “live dat lash life,” NOW I CAN! (Yes, this needed to be in all caps.)
I can see the difference in pics with my bare lashes (these are after four months using the product), but when I wear mascara, it’s even MORE noticeable. I can definitely see more length, especially where there had previously been bare spots/gaps where my natural lashes were their smallest and stubbiest. Also, I can see a difference in the outer corners. Now my fringe even flares out.
It’s not just me, either. The reason I wanted to try this stuff in the first place was because my BFF Jen sent me a selfie a few months ago, and her lashes, which are naturally spare and short like mine, looked about 10 miles long. Seriously, she looked like she was wearing falsies.
And then when there were rumors a few months ago about Lash Boost being discontinued, my beauty pals on Facebook collectively had a major panic attack. Everyone went into hoarder mode, stashing away tubes left and right. A girl I know bought six of them at once!
Apparently, you can use it in your brows, too? I’m gonna start whacking a little into my ghost brow (the one on the right that fades to nothing at the tail) to see if it helps.
This stuff works for me, but FYI, it takes time. I didn’t see a difference until four months in, so if you decide to give it a go, stick with it.
Oh, also…if you want to maintain the results, you have to continue using the serum. So, once you’re hooked, you can’t really stop. 🤨
All I have to say to that is…CAN’T STOP WON’T STOP. I don’t want to stop. Please don’t make me.
