I’m a makeup lover.

I still remember being a little girl and watching my mom do her makeup for a special event. She expertly blended her tricolour eye makeup – pink to purple to blue – from an all-in-one Covergirl eye palette. It was the end of the 80s and bright colours were in!

Since then, I couldn’t wait to be allowed to wear makeup, and while I’ve learnt to appreciate the variety of makeup out there – especially when it comes to foundation and concealers – the eyes always have it.

I’ve spent years applying mascara and falsies to my lashes. The bigger, the better, I always say! It doesn’t matter if you look like Drag Queen material – THAT is a compliment, ladies! So when I recently spotted RapidLash Eyelash Enhancing Serum at Shoppers Drug Mart (it was $59), I scooped that baby up and shared it on Instagram! It seems many of you can empathize with my eye lash situation (that I don’t have enough, obviously).

To use RapidLash, you simply brush the serum onto the base of your eyelashes before bed (be sure to remove your makeup first!). It’s a clear serum that dries quickly, and it hasn’t irritated my eyes at all (I have sensitive eyes!). I took a before picture and after 30 days will take an after picture to see my progress!

RapidLash is clinically proven to enhance the growth of eyelashes and even eyebrows (there’s a RapidBrow for that!). It contains a Hextein 1 Complex which is safe for your eyes, and works to strengthen, lengthen, hydrate, and stimulate lash and brow hair.
