Since Latisse’s star-studded launch a couple months ago, Brooke Shields has been an enthusiastic spokesperson for prescription-only lash-growing serum. And the actress sat down with to talk a little more about her role with the brand. “I destroyed my own eyelashes while performing on Broadway because I had to use fakes — after awhile that takes a toll,” she says. Brooke took part in a fourteen-week trial of the product, which interrupts lashes’ natural growth cycle, consistently applying two drops of LATISSE solution on her lash line each night. “I am beyond excited with my new eyelashes,” she says. “Now my new eyelashes are so noticeable I don’t even need to wear mascara. I love it.” And while the results are impressive, they don’t come cheap, with a one-month supply costing $120 and ongoing use required to keep lashes from returning to their natural length. But it’s all worth it according the actress. “My husband notices everything on me,” Shields tells “And when I was looking straight ahead, he said, ‘Wow, your lashes are longer! That’s amazing!’” Click here to learn more about Latisse. Then tell us: Would you try a prescription lash serum to lengthen your lashes? — Linda Marx

Can this woman be any more out of touch? The economy is in the pits and she is promoting a medicine to grow eyelashes that costs over $100/month! So vain! She is way overexposed and in too many commercials. Compare her to Andre Agassi and the great things he’s doing with his money and she looks pathetic.

I agree w/Maggie, the cost is a lot of money. How many months do u have to use it to get results??

Apply a presccription medication, with possible side effects, that close to my eyes? Just to get thicker eyelashes? Hmmm, let me think. No thanks.

Taylor on

Definetly not. i agree w/ Kristi. I mean just to get thicker lashes? Who would do that? Nobody. And, it’s expensive.

I’ve been using Latisse for about 3 months and it is by far the most amazing product I’ve ever seen! So many people comment on my lashes now. Even perfect strangers! It’s really a neat thing and I have had no side effects – I’m totally hooked!

She has not aged well at all. It kinda makes me sad. And she cannot carry off those eyebrows anymore. :(

We’ll that’s reality.. Beauty is an expensive commodity.. If you’re not born with it, then you really have to spend bucks if you really want it.. Latisse maybe expensive. but it will definitely give eyelashes that you desire.

I really like brooke shields and I like her more when I read this article. Some celebrities had cosmetic surgery just to look good but brooke opted for something safe and healthier which is a good thing.
