Final Update--Challenge: Trish McEvoy Lash Enhancer Nighttime Conditioning Treatment + Bonus EOTD

I am now at week 10 or so of using the treatment every night, with the exception of a few nights here and there since my last post. This will be my final update because I believe that my lashes are at the point where I will not see any more improvement. If it does show some significant change, I will be sure to update again.

Eyelashes Start

Eyelashes final (after 10 weeks)

I am happy with the overall results. You can see marked lash growth, especially in my lower lashes and they do look a bit fuller. The only negative thing that I can say about this product is that it is quite expensive. I was in Sephora last week and found out that there are more lash treatment products there now. One that was highly recommended was the one by Tarte and the cost is approximately half the cost of Trish McEvoy. If I need to use a lash treatment again, I may go ahead and try that one.

I still have quite a bit of product left in the tube. I will have to check to see what the longevity of the product is and will continue to use it nightly until it expires or I run out. I will then not use anything again until I find my lashes disappearing again.

I decided to do an EOTD for this final lash treatment update.

Products used:

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Sin
Dior Extase Pinks Eyeshadow Palette
MAC Neutral Pink
MAC Print
K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner
Shiseido Mascara Base
Estee Lauder Mascara

Eyelashes after 10 weeks. You can really see my lower lashes

In comparison, you can't see my lower lashes here at all. Upper lashes seem like they are longer, however, they were really curled at a severe angle at the roots. This picture was using Dior Show mascara.

I used the same mascara that I've used throughout this whole post, except for one exception, which might have been the start post.

For the EOTD, I wanted to show the versatility of the Dior palette since I had mentioned it when I first bought it. This time I used MAC Neutral Pink in contour area blending upward toward brow bone. The light pink (center color) is lightly used as highlighter on brow bone. The darker pink on inner 1/3 of eyelid from lashline to crease. Purple is used on middle 1/3 from lashline to crease and blended upward above creaseline into contour area and outward toward outer 1/3 of eyelid. The charcoal color is used on outer 1/3 of eyelid from lashline to crease and blended upward towards contour area and inward towards middle of eyelid. The purpose of this blending into the other areas is so that there is no harsh color lines and it hopefully shows a nice color gradation. Print is used on outer corner of the upper eyelid in a sidewards "v" shape. This time I extended it out slightly and then brought the color down to my lower lashline and lined the outer 1/3 of lower lashline with the color fading towards the center. I hope that made sense. Lined upper lashline and outer corner of lower lashline, not even going in quite 1/3 of the way with K-Palette eyeliner. Curled lashes with Koji eyelash curler, applied Shiseido mascara base and Estee Lauder mascara on upper and lower lashes.

I hope that this challenge and review on Trish McEvoy Lash Enhancer Nighttime Conditioning Treatment was helpful. Please be aware that the result this product, as with any product, is different for everyone. For example, Talika Lipocils didn't do anything for my eyelashes although it has done some fantastic things for other people.

I think this is great work. I can defn see an improvement. I hope I get any kind of result from my el cheapo Korean one I got from Gmarket!! I always wanted to use Lilash because I have seen good results from this online. I think it takes about 6 months to get that way though! 6 months seems long... I think i will update after Christmas... maybe early 2011?

Expensive yes - but you got a good result out of it! I reckon if you use this you will see a massive change..
thanks for this update and super lovely EOTD. Must remember to swatch the Dior quints next time I am browsing...

Very pretty EOTD! oh gosh... i have most of the MAC eyeshadows you mentioned there - neutral pink, print! lol.

I'm glad this lash treatment works for you.. I am so lazy with mine!! I'm like you, my lower lash lines is quite sparse. I've given up (mostly) on applying mascara on it.

Thanks BV! Yes, there's definite improvement and for me that's well worth the price that I paid. I don't mind searching for others that can work the same or even better and it's great if it's at a lower cost.

I'm really, really looking foward to your review.

Thank you Nic Nic! I love Neutral Pink. Too bad it was an LE and we can't get it any more. I think that today I might have found a dupe or very close to it. I'll have to go back and look at it again carefully. I don't even remember the name of it. DUH!

As you can see in my pic, Print is well loved. I've hit pan and then some.
