side effect FAIL

has anyone else seen this commercial for latisse? it’s a fairly new product for those of you who aren’t entirely thrilled with your lackluster eyelashes, aka hypotrichosis. (uhh. ok.) you spread this solution junk on your lids and voila — longer, celebrity eyelashes appear. but here’s the kicker: (like with any drug, the scariest side effects always get the most prominence, even if they’re the most rare, but damn.) “May cause eyelid skin darkening which may be reversible, and there is potential for increased brown iris pigmentation which is likely to be permanent. There is a potential for hair growth to occur in areas where LATISSE® solution comes in repeated contact with skin surfaces.”

i’m sorry … say wha???

1. my lids might be permanently discolored? eww. FAIL.

2. my blue peepers might turn brown? double FAIL. (calm down. nothing against brown eyes. some of my most favorite ladies sport the loveliest of brown eyes, but i like my baby blues.)
