She might be famous for her gorgeous brows, but Brooke Shields is now making her lashes the focus as the spokesperson for lash-lengthener Latisse. And at last night launch event for the product in L.A., stars including Angie Harmon, Debra Messing, Mandy Moore and Jewel turned out to help Brooke celebrate the newest innovation in beauty. The FDA-approved, prescription-only treatment promises to grow lashes longer, thicker and darker with continued at-home use. And Brooke was more than happy to be among the first celebs to try it out. “I was quite shocked with how quickly I can see results!” she told PEOPLE.com of the eight weeks and counting that she’s been using the product. “I was skeptical. It’s amazing.” Brooke wasn’t the only convert on hand. Mandy Moore told PEOPLE.com, “I can’t put fake lashes on by myself, so it’s nice to know that there’s something out there that can benefit you in that process.” But the evening also marked the launch of “Latisse Wishes,” a public awareness and education campaign supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

For me, the prescription aspect stops me cold. I am uncomfortable asking for a prescription for something not really medically needed. Yes, I hate my sparse eyelashes. If this were available at the beauty counter, I’d go buy it immediately. I do think it’s an expensive habit… I know they have to recoup costs from the research but I’m pretty sure my practical husband would not support the hundreds of dollars going into this desire to have beautiful lashes.

i read (on MSN?) that this stuff can permanently turn your irises black. there is no way i’d want to risk that happening.

shocked on

plastic surgery, fasting, extreme regimes, prescription drugs…
I somehow wish that at this point and time we’d be above those things!! it makes look “women’s rights” unecessary when women themselves put their own health at risk for “looking good”. I personally find it nauseating, if you’ve got issues, get a therapist, not surgery and pills!! eat healthy, excersise, love yourself and be happy! there are seriously more important things in life than constantly focusing on the enveloppe you came in! that’s shallow and sad!

Capriole on

I would not use medication for something that is not medicially necessary. The risk of side-effects, plus putting unnecessary chemicals into my body are not worth it to me and my thin lashes. No thanks.

Wow more stars endorsing Latisse..I agree with Capriole.. But I think beauty is a pricelss commodity, For as long as you are well-informed about the product and its side-effects, and ensure that you do understood the proper application and aware of the consequences in case of clumsiness, then I guess it won’t be bad. Most importantly, for as long as you can afford it, then why not? If others can enjoy it, why can’t we?
