The art of eye makeup products isn't a new concept. Ancient Egyptian women used to beautify their eyes with kohl and malachite powder as far back as 4,000 B.C!👀
Since then, beauty technology has paved the way for some really cool products!✨ I've tried all kinds of liners, mascaras, and eyeshadows, but one thing I've always wondered about was lash serums. They seem like a gimmick, but I was ready to give them a try.
And let me tell you, Grande Lash did not disappoint! You need to read my thoughts before trying!✨

When you're putting a product this close to your eye, ingredients are super important. Let's take a look at the key players! 👀
The formula is packed with amino acids like L-Proline. This one, in particular, is one of the main collagen-boosting elements. It gives a full, plump effect for healthy-looking lashes!
Hyaluronic acid is a moisturizer and conditioner that prevents breakage and hydrates lashes. The same stuff we use for our skin!
🌿Botanical Extract Blend:
There are lots of interesting antioxidant-rich compounds! Natural ingredients like ginseng root, bearberry leaves, and chamomile strengthen your lashes. We love a natural formula!
Looking through a detailed breakdown of the ingredient list, I was surprised to see so many natural elements. The INCI Decoder rates each component as "good" or "superstar"! There's not a single questionable or harmful ingredient in the mix.😍
My Experience With the GrandeLASH Serum
I've wanted naturally longer, thicker lashes for as long as I can remember! But lash extensions can be super damaging and require a lot of upkeep. I resigned myself to mascaras for the rest of my life.😤
But when I heard about eyelash serums, I knew I needed to give them a fair shot. I chose the GrandeLASH MD because it has a ton of reviews all over social media. Here's how I've been using it!⬇️
Use the serum whenever you have time, and your face is clean! I opted to apply it at night as part of my skincare routine. I don't use eye cream on my lids, so it didn't interfere with the formula.
I followed the official instruction that came with my tube. Use a single stroke on your eyelid, as close to the lash root as possible. Just pretend you're applying liquid eyeliner, and you'll do fine.
Keep in mind: lash ROOT, not the lashes themselves! Then allow 1 - 2 minutes for the serum to dry before applying anything else to your face.
PRO TIP: don't double-dip the wand or apply more than once a day. Unfortunately, over-applying won't make your lashes grow longer. It'll just waste product and your own time!
Their website suggests using the product daily for the fastest results. I ended up applying it every other day because I have very sensitive eyes. The whole tube should be gone after three months of everyday application.
They also suggest using the serum every other day once you achieve your goal. It can help with maintenance and prevent your lashes from reverting to their original length after a growth cycle.
The Results: Is My Lash Grande Now?
The moment you've all been waiting for: the results!✨ Keep in mind that I wasn't a believer when I started because lash serums seemed like the ultimate gimmick to me. But as soon as I saw baby lashes popping up, I knew it was the real deal.☺️
I had some gaps between lashes from makeup remover, lash curlers, and rubbing my eyes. That's totally normal, but I've always wanted to even out my lashes. My existing lashes also seemed to be getting longer and stronger!
Was this an overnight miracle? No, definitely not! Don't expect super-fast or drastic results as lashes grow in cycles.🔁
Like the hair on our heads, it takes time for new lashes to come in, and no serum can alter fully grown lashes. But I did see significant results in new lash growth and less shedding. I was also surprised to see a noticeable difference after applying my favorite mascara.🤩
So, will Grande Lash give you longer, thicker-looking lashes? It depends on your goals! I wasn't expecting a super dramatic result and was happy with what I got.
Get the trial size tube if you want to try it out but are still on the fence. The 1 mL trial size lasts for 6 weeks. And if you like it, upgrade to the 2 mL (three months supply) next time!
A Little FAQ!
Rapid-fire question and answer time!✨ These are some of the most commonly-asked questions I've seen about the GrandeLASH.
💜How long until you see results?
The full results should be noticeable after three months of use. There are even studies showing that lash growth serums deliver results within 90 days! In one study, women saw a 10% increase in length and a 35% increase in thickness!
💛Are there any side effects?
It is dermatologist and opthalmologist tested and approved. It was fine for my sensitive eyes, but some people might experience irritation. If you feel tingling, stinging, or see redness, you might be having an allergic reaction and should stop using it ASAP!💗
💖Can you put it on the bottom lashes?
The company doesn't recommend putting the serum on your bottom lashes. It's much easier for it to get into your eyes and cause some discomfort.
Does Grande Lash Give You Grande Lashes?
I'm not a lash expert by any means, but I was pretty happy with my results!☺️ Are you going to get dramatic, extension-like lashes after three months? No, but you will probably see a noticeable difference and it might even become a makeup favorite💗
