Meilily Product Testing: Will using RapidLash result in thicker lashes?

With all the fuss and controversy over prescription and non-prescription lash growth serums and their potential side-effects, it is often difficult to tell truth from fiction, good products from bad products. Meilily is here to get you the real scoop on the popular non-prescription lash growth serum, RapidLash, by testing it out over the next several weeks to see if it really works.

The controversy over lash growth products started with the possible iris-discoloring side effects of the first FDA-approved eyelash growth product, prescription-only Latisse. Latisse contains the same active ingredient level of lash-growing prostaglandin as a drug that was used to treat glaucoma but which left some glaucoma patients with permanent iris darkening. Apparently Latisse helped patients in a clinical study grow their lashes about 25 percent longer and about twice the fullness! Would you trade lush lashes for stained irises? › Continue reading

New Tarte Cosmetics Summer 2009 Product Launch: Enhance Lashes, Get Toned and Tan

Thursday, May 7th, 2009 | Makeup, Product Launches, Skincare | 1 Comment

Meilily Product Launch News!
This month, tarte cosmetics is launching three new products as part of the tarte summer 09 collection and some new shades. The new tarte summer 09 collection looks to be more of an innovative departure from their previous color-based collections and includes a natural lash enhancer and an anti-cellulite self-tanner!  I’m really curious to try the new products and see how they work, especially since I’ve had really good luck with tarte products so far.

multiplEYE natural lash enhancer ($65)
Contains a clinically-proven peptide that gives the appearance of longer, thicker lashes. Apparently 90% of clinical subjects reported an “increase in lash thickness,” while all subjects reported an “increase in overall lash length.” Sounds impressive. Best of all, this lash enhancer is cruelty-free and free of parabens, petro-chemicals, dyes, and other questionable ingredients.

celluFIGHT natural anti-cellulite self-tanner ($40)
A double-duty skin-toning skincare product and self-tanner in one!  I don’t normally self-tan because I’m too lazy for that, but this sounds intriguing.  Ingredients include natural plant-derived DHA self-tanner, caffeine, algae extract, and natural green tea fragrance that is 70% organic.

eyeQuatic waterproof summer essentials set ($35)
This makeup set includes three new lock & roll eyeshadows (turquoise, citrine, tanzanite), a deluxe lights, camera, splashes! waterproof mascara, and an aquatic-mod headscarf.

tarte summer 2009 launches May 2009 and is available at tarte.com, sephora.com, beauty.com, Henri Bendel, and other boutiques.
