Get Lots of Lashes! Talika Lipocils Expert Giveaway

It is no secret that my lashes are more lackluster than blockbuster. Regular readers know I kvetch about them all of the time. For the last few years, I have been looking for lash growth enhancers that really work without the possibly dangerous side effects. I have tried a few of them and some have worked better than others.

After a few weeks of trying something new, my co-workers, clients and friends' husbands began to comment on my longer lashes! It's always a little awkward, because it's hard to compliment something like my lashes now looking luxe. The comments always start with something like this:
"Wow. Your lashes look great. They really show up now, I can see them! What are you using?" or "Hey! Your lashes look great. They can't be yours, can they? You never have nice, long lashes."

Ouch. But they aren't wrong. My lashes stink from a heredity standpoint. Here is what they looked like prior to using a new lash saving serum.


(They are so short, they are hard to photograph! They literally are too short to curl. They just stick out.)

When Talika contacted me and asked me to try their new Lipocils Expert in advance of the product launch, I was excited to see if it really worked. The ingredients include UV Photo-filters and Coleus Forskholli, which have been shown in clinical trials to help grow, darken and curl lashes. Plus it includes the 12 plant extracts that made the original Lipocils so popular.


Here is how it works. You apply it at the root of the lashes and before mascara (or after taking mascara off) two times each day, for the first month. After the first month, then just use it once a day to maintain your new lashes. It comes with a unique applicator that is a doe foot sponge and a mascara wand, making it easy to apply in a matter of seconds.

Here is what it did in clinical trials in Paris:

36% longer
50% darker
50% more curled

Again, here were my lashes when I started:

(So short, you can't even see them!)

So what did my lashes look like when I was finished?

(au naturel)



(two coats of mascara)


(one coat of mascara and one coat of powder)

(one coat of BE Flawless and one coat of Mally Volumizing)

Not too shabby, huh!

The new Talika Lipocils Expert is available exclusively at Sephora and retails for $55. I have been using this for more than a month and still have plenty left in the tube. Compared to other products, it's a steal! And just for my short-lashed sisters (or brothers), I have TEN TUBES OF TALIKA LIPOCILS EXPERT TO GIVE AWAY!

Just leave a comment below and tell me about your lashes. Be sure to log in or leave your email addy so I can get in touch if you win. Want extra chances?

UPDATE! Since I finished the 28 day Talika challenge, I have continued using the product. Here are my lashes around 50 days. I can't believe these are my eyes!

(The longer lashes on the left are incredible!)

(If I didn't know any better, I would think this is photo shopped. But trust me, my photo shop skills are limited to "crop".)

What are you waiting for? Enter to win (and tell your friends!)

Need longer lashes right now? Check this out!

Also new is Lash Extender from Talika. It's literally fiber lashes in a tube. Put a coat of wet mascara on lashes, touch the tips of your lashes to the fiber brush and add another coat of mascara. It's not the neatest application and not for the faint-hearted. But if you need lots of lashes fast, you might want to try this!

  5. Thanks for having this contest! My lashes are medium length, but they don't show up much because my lids hide them.

  7. Ohh I would LOVE to try this!! I have pathetic lashes and always on the hunt for the perfect mascara, but I've given up on the mascara hunt because I've finally come to peace that no mascara can help someone with no lashes!

  8. Talika has an eyebrow thickener that really works well too! I'd love to try this new product. My lashes are so light it drives me crazy!!

  9. How does this compare to Revitalash? That's the only one I've tried, but I love the idea that this one coats your lashes as well - I'd love to try it :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I haven't tried Revitalash. It contains a prostaglandin analogue, which is similar (but not exactly the same) to the active ingredient in Latisse. I have only tried lash enhancers that don't contain the prostaglandin analogue (which are tied to side effects.)

    I have a good friend who has been using a product with prostaglandin analogue and has amazing lashes. I just haven't made that jump myself. It makes me a tiny bit nervous.

  11. I think my lashes are shorter [and straighter] than yours! I have been searching for the 'it' mascara that will lengthen and curl for over 20 years. I think I've tried them all. Over the last four years I have been tempted to try the temporary lashes that salons 'glue on' but learned the glue can remove your natural lashes when they fall out. I have very little as it is! And am a little frightened of losing what I have.

    Thank you for all your reviews -- I truly enjoy every email I receive!

  12. Lash extending mascaras don't usually work too well for me with my sensitive contacts-wearing eyes. Naturally longer lashes would be a plus. I'd love to try one of those ten tubes so please toss my name in the hat!

  13. Boy, could I use this. My lashes bare are short, sparse, and hardly there. You can hardly see them without any mascara on. I could really use longer lashes as I can hardly see them with mascara too.

  21. Oh my goodness!!! Your lashes look so great :) The mascara looks really good too, it's a very rich black too which is nice.

    I have very thin and sparse lashes that don't hold a curl easily unfortunately :( I would love to try this out especially because you have picture evidence to show that it does work! Thank you for the giveaway chance!

  23. O this is awesome! I think as an Asian female, it is quite hard to grow long lashes.

    Mine are pretty sure, which makes it hard to curl, but I usually use clear/black mascara which sorta helps. Would love to win this!

  27. okay, I have been cursed with blonde skimpy lashes...you can barely see them because they are so light this would be an awesome win...as I feel like I constantly cover my eyes with my sunglasses because I am so embarrased by my lack of lashes.
