6 Ways To Make Your Latisse Last Longer


No doubt about it: many women love Latisse for the way it lengthens their eyelashes. Eighty five percent of reviewers on RealSelf.com gave it a thumbs-up, with some serious raves to boot. But Latisse will have you shell out more than your average mascara: about $90 for a two-month supply, if used as directed. That means one drop on one applicator brush for each eye for 60 days.

Still, everyone from our staff to patients to beauty bloggers have been finding creative ways to make their precious drops of Latisse — and their dollars — last a little longer. Here’s what they’re finding:

1. Use only one Latisse drop — in the cap — each day. 

The directions tell you to apply one drop directly to the brush for each eye. To avoid waste, Davis Plastic Surgery’s ever-resourceful Veronica has crafted her own method: “I put one drop in the cap, and dip the brush in the cap. This way, I can do both eyelids with one drop and one brush.” Veronica is using Latisse to get lush lashes before her wedding — and said they were “ridiculously long” after three weeks.

2. Use the Latisse brush for two consecutive days.

Another problem with Latisse — you get 60 applicator brushes to use, and that’s it. New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Joseph says he suggests that patients use one brush for two days straight: “It can be rinsed with water in between uses, and left to air dry.” This way, you can get a full four months out of your prescription.

3. Use your own brush.Latisse applied using your own brush

Beauty bloggers Beauty in the Bag — which seems to absolutely love Latisse — thinks a “skinny eyeliner brush” is the way to go rather than with the ones that comes with the package.  This is what our staffer Gretta does – and she’s been a faithful user since February of 2008!

4. Cut the Latisse brush in half.

Along the same lines, some docs are telling people to give the little brushes that come with Latisse a chop. This way, you’ll use less product — and what you do use will be applied more carefully and efficiently.

5. Apply only as much Latisse as you need. 

Even though Allergan says you need one drop per eye per day, the consensus seems to be that a full drop is probably more than enough. Of course, this depends entirely on how long you want your lashes to be, and don’t forget that Latisse’s effect isn’t permanent — once you stop using Latisse, your lashes will revert to their original length and thickness.

6. Sign up for Brilliant Distinctions to save!

Many doctors are offering Latisse at the suggested retail price — between $80-$120. But there are definitely some ways to save easily!  Enroll for Allergan’s free Brilliant Distinctions program and earn points (which equals money off!) each time you purchase LATISSE® (and even Botox and Juvederm!) from our office.

Each kit is worth the following:

3 mL Kit 100 points
5 mL Kit 150 points

OK, does Latisse really work?

Not a week goes by that another skincare product isn’t introduced claiming to make you look 18 again.  Or a laser that permanently removes every hair on your body – in one treatment (that’s painless – ha!)  You can’t blame us for being skeptics.  It was about 3 months ago that the FDA approved Latisse by Allergan (the makers of Botox) and created a buzz in our office.  Featured on the Today Show that week and caused our phones to ring off the hook.  But “does it really work?” patients wanted to know.  We had to try it to find out.

Here is what our office discovered after 2 months of use:

1. It only works if you use it.  OK, you can miss a day here or there – but you will not see results if you do not use it consistently.

2.  You can get a lot longer out of the 1 month ‘pack’ than it says.  We easily got 2 months out of it (Bonus!)

3.  It really wasn’t hard to use – it sounds like a pain but it was super easy.


Check out our patient care coordinator’s pictures taken March 3, 2009 (after 1 week of using Latisse) and today (May14th) roughly 9 weeks of usage. 

I don’t think there is any denying the effectiveness of this product.  Thank you, Allergan!

LATISSE is available in the United States through a physician’s office only and is subject to all U.S. guidelines applicable to dispensing a prescription product.
