LASH GROWTH! Tarte MultiplEYE Natural Lash Enhancer [Beginning]

Ok, so some of you may know that I had super success with the Urban Decay Lush Lash System (and yes, I'm still bitter that I lost the blog posts when I lost all of my photos with my blog...PISSED...) but I do have the before/after photos and my VLOG of it...soooo....yeah.

I'm embarking on a quest now to test out the Tarte MultiplEYE Clinically Proven Natural Lash Enhancer serum!  Much like the Urban Decay, it's painted onto the [clean and dry] upper lash line like a liquid liner and left to dry.  Interesting fact: the directions say you can apply makeup over it once it's dry - so you can do this day OR night!

So now my lashes are pretty long from the success with the Urban Decay system, but as I said before, I didn't find it gave me any from the Tarte, I'm actually looking for thickness rather than length (though I am assuming I will get some kind of length from it!)

Tarte says the system contains their HydroPlant Peptide[TM] which is clinically proven to give the *appearance* of thicker lashes.  It also contains soy and amino acid proteins which are infused with cellulose (a plant derived thickening agent) and vitamin C (antioxidant booster).

Tarte's Clinical Results:
152% change in appearance of lash length (6 weeks)
100% of subjects reported increase in appearance of lash length
100% of subjects reported increase in overall lash health
90% of subjects reported increase in lash thickness

Firstly, this is very cleverly worded...APPEARANCE is a huge word to look for in any advertisement...just in case you didn't know ;)  They're basically saying your lashes LOOK longer, not that it actually grows them.

I'm going to look at the health of my lashes and the thickness and the length will be kind of the afterthought for me this time around.  Being that I wear mascara 5 or 6 our of 7 days a week, they take a beating and are prone to breakage and natural I'm definitely watching for the health.

Here are my lashes as of RIGHT NOW:

So I will try to remember to photograph at least one of my eyes each week (over the 6 week course) so that we can keep track of how this works!
