At New York’s posh London Hotel where Gordon Ramsay’s cuisine rules, actress Claire Danes shared her own LATISSE experience and a glimpse into her personal beauty regimen, which is pretty low maintenance for an A-lister. Beauty in the Bag was there.
According to Claire, “I have been using LATISSE for about a year now. I had some minor irritation at first but it only lasted for a few day. Now I use it every day. It’s part of my routine and I don’t even think about it anymore. It’s amazing how every makeup artist I work with notices the difference in my lashes. They can’t believe it.” Her lashes do look gorgeous.
A Cetaphil and Laura Mercier moisturizer girl, at 31 Claire’s creamy complexion is flawless and unlined, yet she takes a very open approach to cosmetic treatments; “It’s great that women have so much choice now. I am all for choice. These are really intimate personal decisions and I don’t think anyone should be judgmental about it.”
According to New York City oculoplastic surgeon Joseph Eviatar, “LATISSE is an “also” drug like BOTOX. The prostaglandin puts the follicles into the growth phase gradually, which accounts for the dramatic effects of LATISSE. It also stimulates melanin in the follicles, so lashes grow darker as well. I tell my patients to use it for the full 16 weeks to get the best results, and they can taper off at that point if their lashes grow too long or touch their glasses.”
What’s coming next for LATISSE? Off label uses include the lower lashes and sparse brows. Clinical trials are currently underway for LATISSE for eyebrows, and to grow lashes for people going through chemotherapy in the US. It is also undergoing clinical trials in Europe, where women are going to great measures to get their hands on some of this lash lengthening liquid gold. There are also hints at some possible changes to the mini plastic brushes on the horizon, although most diehard LATISSE users we know have converted to using eyeliner brushes for the best application.
