Which eyelash serum is the best for growing longer lashes?
Here are our favourite formulas
Beauty Crew Contributing Editor / January 24 2022
Given the ridiculous amount of lash-centric products in our kits, it’s safe to say we’re fairly obsessed with a full flutter.
But while we’re happy to swipe on our go-to mascara most mornings, occasionally apply a pair of fluffy false lashes, and book in for an eyelash extension appointment every so often, it would be nice if we were naturally blessed with beautiful lashes and could just roll out of bed and go.
Thankfully, there’s a product called an eyelash growth serum that can help you enhance lash growth so you can have the long eyelashes of your dreams. Yep, for real.
Though you generally need a prescription to buy the type of lash serum that impacts the lash hair’s growth cycle (doctors prescribe them to those who have sparse lashes due to hair loss), there are some great over-the-counter formulas that help improve the look of lashes by strengthening and conditioning them so they’re healthier and less likely to fall out prematurely.
So, if you're ready to get into the lash growth game, we’ve found the best of the best in Australia...

The included applicator features a unique sponge at the tip for applying the serum at the base of the lashes, and a mascara-like wand to brush it through the lashes from root to tip.
