The road to achieving longer-looking lashes is full of trial and error. But these days, the options are plentiful. Once upon a time, the only real option was to reach for falsies and lash glue, but today you can choose from eyelash extensions, lash lifts, lash tinting, and more. In fact, there are so many options (all of which are readily available to the masses and now crazy popular) that last year, Business of Fashion reported that mascara might be losing its relevance. It’s not that mascara sales are dwindling, but they’re certainly not growing, either.
So what’s a long lash-lover to do? Salon services like tints, extensions, and perms can really add up, and not everyone wants to put on a set of false lashes every day. Enter: eyelash serum. Certainly not a new-to-the-market product, but one that’s seen growth in both variety and formulation in recent years. Gone are the days of having one or two expensive options to choose from. While luxe options definitely still exist, even mass drugstore brands have gotten into the lash serum game.
“I like RapidLash XL because it’s very easy to use, quite inexpensive compared to others on the market, and even works on your eyebrows,” says makeup artist Veronica Chu, who works with the likes of Coco Rocha and Carly Rae Jepsen. “Apply once a day for four weeks to see results. What I love about this one is that it doesn’t leave your eyelids red or sore like some of the others.”
