Hmmmmm... a quick post about my eyelashes (surprise!)

So... I took some selfies this morning after I had gotten ready for the work day. I was trying a new (for me) eye look and wanted to show the results to someone who had "coached" me. I honestly had no intention for the pics to be anything else.
Until I looked a little closer. I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves (these are my own eyelashes, not curled, with one coat of Jordana's Best Lash Mascara in black).
Thank you, Fysiko!?!

Fysiko Eyelash Growth Serum - final review

So... It's been "oficially" a little longer than 16 weeks (almost 18 - I've been a bit busy, m'kay?). I began this "journey" on May 13th not quite knowing what to expect. I'd heard of eyelash growth serums, but, honestly never gave any of them a second look after seeing the cost. A huge thanks to Influenster for giving me this opportunity, one that I honestly would not have had otherwise.

I won't bore you by repeating *everything* I've already said, so if you haven't already, please hop on over to the sidebar and check out my previous posts included in this review...

I'm fortunate in that I was blessed with naturally decent eyelashes. Doesn't mean I'll be caught out much without mascara, but they aren't horrible. So, while I never expect miracles, I have to admit, I was hoping for a little more than what I received.

Let me say that I was not disappointed, overall. Not at all. I suppose if I had to sum my experience up in one word, it would be "meh" (that is *so* a word!).

Now, if I'm going to shell out what, in my world, is mega $$$ for a beauty product, at very least I'd expect the packaging not to fail. As I've shown, the applicator (and application) is very similar to many liquid eyeliners. With my tube, the handle came, I guess, unglued from the actual applicator. So when I would close the product, the handle kept spinning, even after the tube was sealed (it screws into the tube - I hope I'm explaining this correctly). So, while not exactly a deal breaker, certainly a negative.

Again, if I'm going to lay down my hard earned cashola, I want to see significant results. I really can't say that I'm "wow-ed" by the results I've seen. I didn't expect a miracle in a tube, just something I don't have to rent micro-measuring equipment to "see" results, ya know?

Lastly, I'm one of those instant gratification kind of people. I really don't have the patience to wait 16 weeks, four months, to see results. I did notice slight improvement somewhere in the middle, but, hopeful as I was, it seemed to stall. I think my mid-review excitement was burst by nothing happening. Kinda disappointing, really.

Now, this is just my experience. To be honest, I haven't read any other reviews beyond the first few weeks... (I had time then... I'm a teacher and it was Summertime ahhhhhhh. But alas, I had to go back to work and anything fun just ended. ;-)) Other people may have, and probably do have, different opinions. Isn't that what makes the world go 'round? (no... It's not love, silly). Please, I encourage you to go look at some of the other reviews! Just search "Fysiko Eyelash Serum Review" on YouTube or simply search #LongerLashes on Twitter.

Thanks, Influenster! I really enjoyed reviewing this product. Hope I made ya proud :-)
