Katrina Ponce-Enrile, and her daughter Kris, are self-confessed “beauty junkies” and “makeup hoarders,” who have proudly embraced their addiction as a lifelong passion. The two strong women are kindred spirits, united in their love for makeup and the world of beauty, which has become their grownup playground.

I’m not sure how many know this “beauty hack,” but it’s been relatively gaining more acceptance among makeup enthusiasts – using ophthalmic solutions (used to treat glaucoma) to thicken lashes.

These eye drops are primarily used to “to control the progression of glaucoma and in the management of ocular hypertension,” but one of the fabulous side effects of the treatment is growing fuller, longer lashes. People have been raving, and so I decided to try it out for myself.

I bought Lumigan ($50), an over-the-counter eye drop, and applied it as recommended – twice a day at the roots of my lashes. They said that you’d see results in about 3 months. But of course, I’m impatient about these things! Haha.

Then I came across another eye drop solution that promises the same effects at a better deal – Latisse ($125). Prescribed by dermatologists such as Dr. Aivee Teo, Latisse is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for inadequate lashes.

When I checked the back of both Lumigan and Latisse and compared what was in them, I was surprised: Lumigan and Latisse are exactly the same! Of course, in terms of packaging they also looked similar. (Latisse, however, has nicer packaging and comes with an applicator.)

I’m not sure how effective these are (since, as said, I’m impatient), but I encourage you to try them out.  Would love to see the results and hear how it worked out for you!

    I commented on your IG post earlier I thought I might extend my comment here. I’ve tried Latisse before and it was really effective. It takes a while since it stimulates new growth of eyelashes which can take a while. My only problem with it is that it makes the skin around my eyelashes really itchy. Lumigan, on the other hand, I’ve been using for approximately 3 weeks now as a result of a major eye surgery on my right eye. I’ve been wondering just the other day why my bottom lashes on my right eye so black and it has more lashes than my left eye. Reading your IG post answered that question. Maybe I should ask my doctor if I can do Lumigan on my other eye too just to even things out. Plus no itching associated with Lumigan.
