Can I apply Latisse with a different brush?

Hello there!! Loving your blog from Bozeman, Montana!! Question: Do I need to use the applicator brushes that come with the Latisse, or could I really apply the product with a new, clean, fine tip brush?

Yes.  I will never, never understand why Allergan released Latisse with those ridiculous brushes.  All the patent infringing products prior to Latisse, had nice, tiny brushes.  Just purchase a tiny, fine tip brush and use that.  Clean it once a week with mild dish detergent and let it dry.  The product will last much longer and you’ll have much less chance of getting it in your eyes (stay on the eyelashes) because it won’t drip.   Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
