Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara: Growing Up and Out

Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara

A friend of mine recently removed her lash extensions only to find her own lashes greatly reduced in thickness and length. Rather than turn to a lash growth product like Latisse that might discolor eyelids or her blue irises, she tried a peptide-infused mascara. Within a few weeks of using Chantecaille Faux Cils (the formula contains rose water for hydration and Sympeptide17 for growth) she swore her lashes had grown back noticeably (though not to their original length). I got this immediately to try for myself as my own lashes have suffered through much abuse. I have not seen a difference in my own lashes after a week of diligent use, but I’ll post an update soon (Chantecaille says that after 14 days, you’ll see 25% growth).

The one thing that might make you double take is the cost. There’s no denying that $70 is a high price for mascara, but considering the cost of lash growth serums and Latisse ($195 for a month’s supply), it’s actually a steal as it lasts a few months. You never know how long a daily serum application will remain on your lids after applying eye make up but mascara stays on all day, this is a perfect a two-for-one! What about you? What’s the most you would spend on magic lash-enhancing mascara? Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash mascara at Chantecaille for $70.

  1. Latisse will not discolor blue eyes, the warnings that iris’ may turn brown infact rarely happens, less than 1% I believe, also there are no cases of blue eyes turning brown, green and hazel however have taken on more brown pigment hence the claim. I did a lot of research on this as a person with blue eyes and I was afraid my eye color would change, again with blue eyes my color did not change neither did the skin along my lashes ( though from the photos I have seen where this happens it just looks like you are wearing eyeliner). I absolutely love Latisse and infact cant use it more than 9 weeks in a row as my lashes get too long. I just always feel the need to defende Latisse because to me it is an amazing product and a lot of people put out these warnings without people knowing how rarely the discoloration happens. Thank you.

    1. Wendy, I agree 100% about the Latisse! It’s an amazing product. I also disagree that you only get one month for $195. I can eke out nearly 6 months of every day use from my $195 bottle. The trick is not to use the horribly wasteful brushes they give you and use a small, soft, lip or eyeliner brush. Just put a tiny dot on your clean countertop, dip the brush into that, and then line the top of your lashline. I’ve been using Latisse for a year and a half and have noticed no change in eye color whatsoever and get compliments on my lashes nearly everywhere I go.
