Gone are the days of wishing you had longer, thicker eyelashes. With new technology and product invention, taking your sparse eyelashes from nothing to fabulous is as easy as applying mascara. So if you long for fuller lashes or need to fill in a sparse eyebrow, then the wait is over because you can have your dreams come true with our top lash growth serums and mascaras.
I love the L'Oreal Double Extend line, and L'Oreal mascara all together. So now they have a new formula from the Double Extend line, which includes a growth serum in the Primer side of the tube. The results? L'Oreal states that women who tried the product saw thicker lashes, in better overall condition, within 4-weeks. Of course they also sell a separate growth serum called Concentrated Lash Boosting Serum, so you could end up giving your lashes a double whammy at a budget-friendly price.
Rimmel has added the serum to the mascara formula, so you only have one application. They state that the use of their "Grow-Lash Complex" will strengthen your lashes, while promoting natural growth for up to 117% longer lashes in 30 days. As a bonus, if you look on the Rimmel Facebook page, sometimes you can score a nice coupon or get a heads-up on a sale.
Revlon offers a single tube of mascara, that includes a regular Revlon mascara, along with a growth serum. They state that their formula is "lash enhancing", so it supports your natural lash growth cycle. Revlon does show that 96% of women, who tested the non-waterproof formula, saw instantly longer lashes. We believe that perhaps the Revlon formula is more for strengthening the lashes instead of actually growing them.
Tarte doesn't suggest in any way that their mascara will promote hair growth, however they do state that their multiplEYE mascara will increase lash volume and length by 638%. The mascara is step #3 of their multiplEYE line, so if you use their Natural Lash Enhancing Primer with it, your lashes could be volumized by 1102%. Wowzers!
Sue Devitt has a dual-ended lash system, which gives you a peptide conditioning serum at one end, and algae-fortified mascara on the other end. Sue Devitt states that by using the conditioning treatment at night, and the mascara daily, that your lashes will be 63% thicker and longer within a few weeks. The before and after on the website does look incredible, and Sue's products are normally right-on-the-money.
Jane Iredale's growth mascara contains sea minerals that work to condition and help to grow your lashes. They don't give percentages, but what we can tell you is that it comes in a variety of regular and fun colors, not to mention it's housed in a squeezable tube so you can get more of the product out. And by-the-way, the squeezable tube also allows for 75% more mascara than the regular brand.
Cargo touts that their LashActivator mascara will boost the appearance of your lashes within 30 days. By using state-of-the-art ingredients, and clinical trials, Cargo's growth mascara has shown a 169% rate of improvement for lash growth. It contains marine algae-extract, citrus-derived flavonoids, and a peptide-biotin complex. And did we mention that it comes in two classic colors; brown and black?
This product by Urban Decay does not contain mascara, so it is only a lash growth serum system. That's okay though, since the numbers they give for results is phenomenal, especially since you don't need a prescription for this product. The Lush Lash System is a double-ended product, where one end has the serum and the other is a conditioning mask. When they work together, according to Urban Decay, you can see 25% thicker and longer lashes in 2-weeks, 40% in 4-weeks, and 63% in 6-weeks.
RapidLash offers clinically proven results of 62% longer looking lashes in approximately 4-6 weeks. It uses a series of peptides, and other ingredients, to help strengthen and rejuvenate your lashes. Personally, I have tried RapidLash and it really did work. I don’t have sparse eyelashes so I tried it on an eyebrow that had a patchy area, and like magic it eventually filled in. Kathie Lee also loves it, and has talked about it many times on the Today Show. Oh, and did I mention that they have a 60-day money back guarantee? But trust me, you won't need it.
Smashbox's growth product is a dual-ended wonder worker, with one side giving your lashes a treatment while the other brushes them with a conditioner. Smashbox states that you will see an increase in length, softness, fullness, and overall improvement within 8-weeks. All of the people in their consumer study hit each mark in the 90% region, so this one seems like a very good contender as well.
