stupidest pharmaceutical product ever


This stuff is designed to alleviate one of the most heartbreaking, one of the most vexing afflictions that women face today...

Disappointing eyelashes. Or, as the ads call it, "hypotrichosis".

I don't know about you, but I wish I had a penny for every time I heard a woman say, "You know, I have a great boyfriend, a satisfying career, wonderful friends, and a well-rounded lifestyle... but I'll never really be happy until my eyelashes are an eighth of an inch longer. I wish someone would invent a prescription drug that has just a few nasty side effects, so my life can finally be complete."

These are the same people who created Botox. Lose your wrinkles, and your facial expressions! Marvelous idea. It was also a marvelous idea to hire a spokesmodel who was never actually lash-challenged in the first place; I'm sure no one will notice that.

I've been ranting about this ever since I saw the commercial!

Just one more thing for us to feel insecure about. Oh, and to spend money on. Sheesh.

Christ on a crutch. I have really fair, fine eyebrows and I use this little thing called mascara. Works wonders.

Yikes I would never do such a thing. I like my lashes just like they are and I dont even wear make up most of the time..

Why use mascara when you could take a prescription drug that may turn your eyelids and/or your irises brown?!

;D

I can't believe this is real. As if we all need more artificial substances in our bodies.
