To: firstname.lastname@example.org From: email@example.com Hi Fashionista, I posted this as a comment, but perhaps you can make it a post on the site? I'm not sure if you've covered this before, but I was wondering if you have any recommendations for a good eyelash curler? I desperately need a new one. I've used Sheseido and Shu Uemura in the past, but are there superior brands I'm overlooking? Your help is appreciated. Thanks! Well, we haven't used a curler that wasn't Shu in many years, so honestly, we don't know, but we're guessing our readers do! So act merry, and go to it - please.

My So-Called Lashes: Claire Danes Talks Latisse
Yesterday I attended an intimate luncheon hosted by Latisse--you know, that product that Brooke Shields used to hawk that promises to make your eyelashes grow--to meet with their latest spokeswoman, Claire Danes. Latisse, made by Allergan (the same folks who brought you Botox), was approved by the FDA at the end of 2008 and launched in March of 2009. To date, over 1.5 million bottles have been sold. The product, as the ubiquitous commercials make plain, is the "first and only prescription treatment approved by the FDA to grow lashes longer, fuller and darker for those with inadequate or not enough lashes (eyelash hypotrichosis)." Talk about a problem you never knew you had. Whenever I see the commercials I feel bad for my eyelashes and their inadequacies. So I was curious to find out why Claire Danes, who once uttered, "I bet people can actually die of embarrassment. I bet it’s been medically proven,” as Angela Chase back in 1994 (thanks EW for pointing this out), was shilling for Latisse. It's a product that has come under fire for side effects that include discoloration of the iris and eyelid. Danes even admitted to experiencing some redness within the first few weeks of using Latisse. To be fair, these side effects are rare and only effect one to three percent of users. And that NYT article with the scary picture of a woman whose whole eyelids had been discolored by the lash-lengthening drug had used it without a prescription.
