The Lash Booster That Saved My Stubby Lashes

Just Get to the Point:
If you don’t have the time or money for pricey lash extensions—or just want to look more like yourself—a lash enhancer like GrandeLASH-MD Serum gives your natural lashes a boost.

Ever since May 19, aka the day Meghan Markle married Prince Harry, this tweet has been ringing in my head: “Imagine getting married to Prince Harry in just tinted moisturizer and mascara.” As all royal-watchers and beauty-watchers know, Meghan Markle made headlines [not to mention history] with the natural beauty look she chose as one of her first moves as Duchess of Sussex. Markle managed to marry a royal without fake lashes. But if I had to guess, she’s been using some sort of lash booster.
Eyelash products like GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum chemically enhance your existing lashes with vitamins, amino-acids and antioxidants. It’s like biotin for your hair—an over-the-counter option to help lashes grow in longer and fuller. It’s also vegan and cruelty-free.
My lashes are so stubby and straight that I’ve long considered them a lost cause, and I don’t mean that in the bad way. Instead of worrying about trying to fix what isn’t there with strip lashes or extensions, I mostly just count them out of my beauty routine. Sometimes, I don’t even put on mascara. But over the few weeks, I’ve layered GrandeLASH-MD over my lash line faithfully every night before bed. The directions advise you to swipe the product on over your upper lashes the same way you would a liquid liner. But this is much better than a liquid liner, because the product is clear, which means there’s no squiggly black line to erase or fix. All you need is one, solid swipe. You’ll know right away that the product is working, thanks to a few seconds of tingling. Then all you have to do is go to bed. GrandeLASH-MD recommends using the serum every night for four to six weeks, with “full results” in three months. In a few weeks of using the serum, I’ve noticed even my teeny-tiny lashes appear fuller, and I expect to have the full Markle [a term I just invented that means gorgeous natural beauty] in another few weeks of use. The serum is way easier and cheaper than sitting for hours in a lash artist’s chair, not to mention it’s a one-time purchase of $65. I’ll never look back, but if I did, you’d notice my lashes.
