Trish McEvoy – Lash Enhancer, the challenge

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 11 - 2010

Straight ones, short ones, long ones, curly ones.  Pubes Eyelashes, they’re the business.

They’re the shields that protect our precious eyes from debris every second of the day, they’re sensitive enough to let us know when that mascara wand is getting perilously close to our eyeballs and trigger the reflex that clamps our eyes shut just before we stupidly poke ourselves with it.

The problem with eyelashes though?  They’re just not long enough.

Horses have fab eyelashes, have you ever noticed?  Straight as a poker… you’d need to put the Shu Uemura’s to work… but still, mega lashes.

I was contacted by the PR for Trish McEvoy who are going to love the fact that my feature about their lash enhancer has already managed to mention pubes and horses when we’re barely 100 words in… but nevermind…

Where was I?

Oh yes, nice PR lady said “Hello!” and “Would you like to try our new Lash Enhancer?”.

“Hmmm” said I… “I’m already using some lash enhancing stuff that I bought, but if you don’t mind a potential guest reviewer I have just the person!”

Meet my cousin… A.

I don’t like this before picture… she’s not as good at taking photos as me.  She says she has some more, so if and when she emails me them… I shall add them.  But this will do for now.

She’s desperate for longer lashes and infact… this photo is the first time I’ve seen her for ages where she isn’t sporting either extensions or a pair of falsies.

We’re gonna give it a couple of months and see how she gets on with the Trish McEvoy Lash Enhancer.

This stuff isn’t cheap by the way… around £89 for 4 months supply.  I hope she doesn’t drop it down the loo or something stupid like that.

Let me give you the rest of the blurb:

Lashes lose fullness due to day-to-day wear-and-tear, makeup removal, eyerubbing, and the aging process. Using highly potent SymPeptides™ and an abundance of powerful proteins, vitamins, and moisturizing ingredients, Lash Enhancer helps condition, hydrate, strengthen, and nourish lashes to help them withstand the mechanical, natural and environmental aggressors as well as aging process that may shorten their life.

A single nightly application of Lash Enhancer Nighttime Conditioning Treatment will promote the stronger, fuller, healthier lashes of your dreams. In just 2 weeks of daily use can you experience as much as a 25% increase in volume. A few quick seconds each night will put you on the road to fuller lashes.

So… fundamentally this stuff is different from the more pharmaceutical lash enhancing treatments.  Most importantly, you can apply this stuff without fear of your eyes changing colour or growing a second head.  Which is always reassuring.

The packaging is sleek, sexy and heavyweight…

A nice precision applicator so you don’t waste too much product during application and deliver the good stuff right to where it’s needed.

I’m excited!  I like these kind of trials… I like tangible results!

Fingers crossed for A that Trish McEvoy’s Lash Enhancer can turn those puny lashes into floor sweepers!  Stay tuned!

    £89 sounds about right, and is the same price of those 2 products I have had my eyes on for a while: lilash and something else (gah forgotten the name already) I really really can’t wait for the results. So many times I’ve been tempted to buy a product like this but the price has always stopped me.
    My concern is that, from what i hear, a product like it help your current lashes grow, but then those big long lashes will naturally fall like your hair, and new natural ones are born, as they do, and then you’re busy looking after these new ones and it never ends and then when you stop using, the enhanced/longer lashes do not get short again, but they will eventually fall out at some point and after a while not using it, you’re back to square 1, with your pathetic small lashes.
    I know: I’ve got a marvellous way with depressing words, haven’t I? Despite my reservations though, I am still super interested to know about the result and can’t wait to her about her experiences and see some photos. Maybe this review will finally give the push to do it?

    Oooh i’m looking forward to how this goes! i have quite good eyelashes but always on the lookout for something to give me super-cartoon ones 😛 i’ve been scared by the side effects of some other growth serums.

  3. LOL well eyeballs not growing a second head is always good

    Just bought mine today at Nordstrom. I really hope it works and will let you know how it’s going. My lashes are short so i’m excited to see for myself how this goes. Getting kind of spendy going in every 4-5 weeks for eye lash extentions.
