I have moaned about my pathetic eyelashes a number of times here on my blog, but they really are awful. I see some bloggers complain about their lashes, but when they do makeup shots you can clearly see their lashes. My lashes are so short, you can’t see them when looking straight at me even when I’m wearing mascara and it drives me insane.
I used to wear false lashes religiously through my early twenties and I’m sure by doing so, I have wrecked my lashes but I’m always up for trying anything that promises to improve my eyelashes. The Talika Lipocils Expert has recently been revamped to celebrate their 70th anniversary, with a Talika Lipocils Expert 70 Years Collector Edition which is £39 (at Space NK or Beauty Bay), and the same price as the normal Talika edition yet this special edition comes complete with an adorable little storage pouch.
What woman doesn’t dream of having a fringe of deeply colored, intensely long and curved lashes? Lipocils Expert is a unique treatment that no longer acts on eyelash growth only, but also on the lashes’ curve and natural pigmentation.
Concentrated in Talika Mythical Botanical Complex, a combination of plants that has been stimulating eyelash growth in women for more than 70 years, Lipocils Expert is rich in anti-aging Peptide Expert, Coleus forskohlii, a natural pigmentation booster, and curling silk proteins.
- Stimulates lash growth
- Intensifies colour
- Increases natural eyelash curl
- Contains anti-ageing peptides to strengthen lashes
- Visible results in just 28 days
- Clinically tested, proven effectiveness
• Talika Mythical Botanical Complex (witch hazel, apple, nettle, horse chestnut and St. John’s wort): stimulates eyelash growth.
• Coleus forskohlii: stimulates the synthesis of melanin in the lashes to intensify their natural pigmentation.
• Peptide Expert: improves the quality of the eyelash bulbs to strengthen lashes’ hold and slow their fall. Anti-aging effect.
• Silk proteins: instantly curl and sheathe the lashes. 96% ingredients of natural origin.
I haven’t been using the Talika Lipocils Expert for 30 days as I wanted to do this post to give you an heads up if you were wanting to get your hands on this adorable collectors edition, as it would appear it’s selling out already. Not only does the tube have an adorable Parisienne theme, the silky pouch it comes with is so handy for keeping the tube safe and it really stands out within my makeup bag thus helping me to remember to apply it every single day. I was impressed that the tube contains 10ml of product as the likes of LiLash and Revitalash only contain 2ml – 4ml of product for upto four times more expensive too.
The brush looks so strange with a typical mascara wand, with a foam applicator on the tip. You have to apply the serum to the base of your makeup free eyelashes by using the foam applicator and then use the brush to evenly coat the lashes. I’m looking forward to seeing the results of using this everyday as my lashes are particularly bad right now as I’m losing lashes everyday but I will update this post with an update once I’ve done 30 days.
My initial impressions though are it’s very quick and easy to apply, it doesn’t sting the eyes either which is a massive bonus. What really intrigued me with this serum is the claims that it darkens the lashes as well as lengthening them. It is the kind of product you have to continue using due to the short life cycle of lashes, but I have really high hopes that the Talika Lipocils Expert will improve my lashes.
Have you ever tried the Talika Lipocils Expert before? Have you ever tried a lash growth serum?
