Brooke Shields, Latisse, and Make a Wish

Brooke Shields, famed eyebrow specialist Anastasia Soare, and Allergan (makers of eyelash enhancer Latisse) have teamed up to help the Make a Wish Foundation. The Latisse Wishes campaign was begun to help raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation, on the idea that people make a wish when they blow on an eyelash. The company has donated an initial amount of $500,000 to Make a Wish, and plan to donate another $5 for each person who signs up on up to a total of $1 million.

So far we are seeing very good results from Latisse. I am currently in the middle of filming a local TV segment where we follow a woman who's using it. So far, five weeks into her treatment, she's noticing a nice enhancement of her eyelashes.

I've never been one to make a wish on an eyelash that falls out. I just hate it when one falls out and sticks to my cheek for several hours.

I am hesitant to use Latisse because I have very green eyes and have heard that the iris color can darken in some individuals. What are your thoughts on this?

I've never heard of Latisse but I'm interested. I did a round of chemo with interferon in 2007/2008 and I lost hair everywhere. My eyelashes, which had been quite thick, have never been the same...
