I have been reading reviews here and on MUA about these products. I am interested in products that make eyelashes fuller and longer. People have mixed feelings about Talika and Mavala. On this forum it looks like a lot of people like lamas masque but I did not hear anyone saying that it makes eye lashes thicker and longer just makes them darker.
If someone had positive results ( thickness and length) with above products, please tell me

I have used the Lamas eyelash mask and it did nothing for me. In fact it was like doing nothing at all and I don't believe theres any product that will thicken eyelashes.

I've been hearing alot on MUA about Talika too so I ordered it a couple of days ago from Sephora and haven't received it yet.

I have tried Lamas lash masque but could never see a noticeable difference so I stopped using it and ending up getting my lashes dyed at a spa. I loved it but have been doing it at home now with good results.

I used Lamas regularly this past summer. Although it did darken my lashes, I did not have any noticable lengthening or thickening. Sad I don't use it as regularly now, usually when I am wearing little to no make-up, but I want to actually be able to see my lashes without having a heavy mascara look.

I've tried both the lash and brow version by Talika, Lipocils was the lash one.
I would say that it made maybe a 10% difference applying it 2 times a day till the wand ran out. I didnt bother to buy it again... it was definitely not an amazing result. I kind of like the lash lengthening fibres ( if you are careful and dont get them in your eye) that they make. They really did make my lashes look longer.
The eyebrow one I sooooooooo wanted to work as I overplucked my brows when I was a teenager and they never recovered properly. Alas. No difference to them for me, maybe the follicles were just empty/dead too long. I do remember the lady saying that they had to be active follicles capable of growing hair to be "encouraged" by the formula.

I'm a greedy wench, so I use all three products regularly. First I apply the Talika Lipocils, then a layer of Mavala on top and I finish it off with the Lamas Lash Enhancer in lieu of regular mascara. I have to say that my lashes are longer and healthier than they’ve ever been, but I really can’t say which product is solely responsible. Also, in addition to these three topical products, I’ve also been taking a ‘Hair/Skin/Nails’ oral supplement containing Silica (aka “horsetail extract,” the magic ingredient in both Talika and Mavala) and MSM, so this might have contributed to my results as well....

But let me put it this way: I like my new “false” eyelashes so much that I will continue using these products for the foreseeable future! My lashes are now so long that they scrape my browbone!! Very Happy

Aww you lucky thing!! How I yearn for long lashes! I used to have really nice lashes as a teen and in my 20's but like my hair.. it's sort of deteriorated since!
I couldn't step out the front door without at least 2 coats of mascara on these days. Wish Talika had worked that way for me, I did try! Ah well..

Confused only used the talika and it has made a difference on me, my mum who has very fine brows and lashes has seen a definite improvement but I guess reading other peoples response it's an individual thing.

MSM = methyl-sulfonyl-methane or dimethyl sulfone...it's found in a lot of hair/skin/nails nutritional supplements or those marketed for joint health. I take mine in a hair/skin/nails formula.
