My Journey to Fuller Lashes - Day 1: Mary Kay Lash and Brow Building Serum

Day 1. 

I embark on this journey in order to ditch the false lashes. It's been a great ride, falsies, but I'm ready to try something new. I want that 'she must have gotten lash extensions' kind of look, without the cost and effort of .. actual lash extensions. I want the smouldering beauty of Liz Taylor without the genetic mutation part (distichiasis!).

So here I go, taking one leap into the unknown, untried, untested... the lash building serum.

Mary Kay Lash & Brow Building Serum claims to:

Build thicker-, fuller-looking lashes while improving the look of thin, sparse lashes and brows.  See results in just 30 days.
  • Lash volume is improved.
  • Lashes look maximized
  • Brows look healthier.
  • Helps reduce lash loss during makeup removal.
Lash & Brow Building Serum™ is formulated to help lashes and brows live up to their fullest potential. Lash volume is maximized. Brittle lashes appear rejuvenated and strengthened so fewer lashes fall out during makeup removal and brows look healthier. This gentle, fast-drying serum is powered by our Lash Response™ Complex, an essential nutrient boost of amino acids, a peptide and red clover extract that is shown to provide support to the dermal matrix* and nourishment to the hair follicle that “anchors” each hair in place. The appearance of thin, sparse lashes and brows is improved. and lashes seem stronger.

I have never used a lash serum before, but I have seen other people's results and they seem to work. I am just starting out on my lash building journey, and will be posting progress updates at 15 and 30 days. I'm only going to be using it on my lashes, as I don't think my brows need any filling in. You are meant to apply the Mary Kay Lash & Brow Building Serum every night and should see results within 30 days (hopefully sooner!).

The application brush is soft and non irritating, but still firm enough to apply precisely to where you need it. The serum itself seems quite watery, but there is no danger of it oversaturating and running into your eye. The brush absorbs just enough serum to apply thoroughly, without too much excess. I didn't get any irritation at all using the serum the first time, but I will update as I continue to use it. It is also unscented.

Application Tips

  • Apply at night after removing makeup and contact lenses.
  • Apply as you would a liquid eyeliner along the lashline.
  • Apply the formula to sparse or bare areas of the eyebrows in the direction of hair growth.

Here are my lashes at the beginning of this treatment, not horribly sparse, but could definitely use some extra volume.

L: Lashes without mascara                                               R: Lashes with Dolly Wink Long mascara.

The Mary Kay Lash & Brow Building Serum is listed on their website at $38 (.15fl oz/4.5ml).
