Does anyone have any tips or use any wonderful products that achieve such a thing?

Mine are very fair, thin and basically a bit crap.hmm

Could be worth looking at Lilash?

I have no personal experience but Nic from Pixiwoo has been using it and her lashes have become insanely long and fluttery. Thinks it's £££ though sad.

There was a thread on here recently saying how great castor oil was for this!

There is also a glaucoma treatment where one of the side effects is to increase eyelashes. However since another side effect is that it can change the colour of your eyes, I'd be a bit wary!

Change the colour of my eyesshock, think I'll try caster oil first!

homemaker found some for £64 for one that only lasts 3 months!

I tried Lilash expensive but it really works, also used one for my eyebrows. My eyelashes touch my glasses now, people pay for eyelash extensions so I guess it's not as expensive as that!

How often do you apply it and how long did it take to notice a real difference? I suppose it would be worth the price if it makes my eyelashes look as wonderful yours sound!

I use it once a day in the morning, I'd say it took about 2 weeks. I had thyroid problems so the outer third of my eyebrow had gone and my eyelashes were so weak, I felt a bit silly for spending so much but it really boosted me, sometimes it doesn't take much! I heard about it from pixiwoo as well, only thing is she said you have to keep using it to see results.

Rapidlash! Great stuff. You need to stick with it for about 3 weeks before you see it start to work.

Rapidlash is amazing! Shouldn't work but it really does. Mine got to the point where they were too long so I had to stop using it every night.

Took about 4-5 weeks to see a big difference, 6-8 weeks for maximum effect. Think you have to keep using it or they go back to how they were.

I had average lashes, they're now Bambi ones that look like I've had eyelash extensions. Its a bit pricey (£40 ish I think) but not as much as other eyelash growth serums so perhaps a good one to start with.

m.boots.com/h5/cat_hub?unCountry=uk&path=%2Fen%2FRapidLash-Eyelash-Enhancing-Serum_1051248%2F It's £41. They sometimes do £5 off on it and I think I've also seen it on either FeelUnique or Look Fantastic for a good price so check there first if you decide to get it,

I use Nanolash

caster oil-it works. Not as quickly as the stupidly priced ones, but it works.

I have glaucoma and one of the side effects of the treatment (eye drops, one drop at night) is longer thicker lashes, possible change of eye colour, especially in blue or grey eyes, they could change to brown and possible darkening of the skin under the eyes.
I've been using it for five years and my eyes are still blue. I do have a slight darkening under one eye but nothing to worry about.
However I would look into what these lash lengthening treatments contain as the treatment for glaucoma causes excess fluid in the eyes to leak out, thus reducing pressure in the eyes. They can also cause a distortion and blurry vision.

Li-lash in my experience is no letter than Revitalash, Rapidlash, Latisse, Neulash, Nanolash and the original Lumigan (no eye colour changes) but it's over £100. I have short, straight fair lashes naturally. I think Pixiwoo has such great lashes because she's young, dark haired and blessed naturally. It simply enhances what you already have. If you start off with short blonde thin lashes, they won't suddenly become like Pixiwoo's - they'll just be a better version of what you already have. if you look at all the before and after pictures that all these companies use, they are without exception of dark haired women who are blessed with good lashes naturally.

Castor oil. 4 weeks in and my eyelashes grown so much. I apply most nights using an old mascara brush.

My glaucoma medication is Lumigan. I should cash in and flog the half used bottles I always have left over. I have to start a new bottle every four weeks as it loses its potency after a month. It also has to be kept refrigerated. The bottles are tiny btw.

I use rapidlsh-my eyelashes grew so long they were brushing against my glasses! Just be sure to get it from boots or somewhere reputable as I heard mutterings that some of the Amazon stuff may not have the active ingredient.
