Since sharing my experiences with these lash serums, I’ve had quite a few emails and queries about both these new eyelash serums that have just been launched in the Malaysian markets. I’ve also got quite a few requests asking me to compare them.
Actually, if you put my Talika Lipocils Expert review and the L’Oreal Renewal Lash Serum review side by side, you might realize that I just did compare them :) One was tested on my right eye and one on my left. My thoughts in both reviews mirror each other.
If you ask me to pit them head to head, I’d say its like comparing an LV bag with a say, Bonia bag. They are both bags, they both hold your necessities and depending on your tastes, both look good enough. But one costs more than the other and its a matter of which you and your wallet prefer :)
In terms of the lash serums, I actually find that one works better than the other for me but results will vary from person to person.
I will say a little about each in terms of texture and efficacy below.
Texture of eyelash gel
I personally prefer the texture of Talika Lipocils Expert. It is light and watery and dries quickly. Applying mascara over it was also no problem. I find the L’Oreal Renewal Lash Serum a little heavy and silicone in texture and mascara did not do well for me over it. When dried, my lashes with Talika feel soft, but lashes with L’Oreal feel more stiff.
Effectiveness of growth serum
My existing lashes seemed to grow more with L’Oreal Renewal Lash Serum but the Talika Lipocils Expert seemed to encourage and speed up the growth of new lashes including on the lower lashline. New lash growth was stagnant with the L’Oreal serum. Which you prefer depends on your concerns and what you want for your lashes.
Condition of lashes
Both lash serums kept my lashes well conditioned and I believe makes them stronger. On some days, I could do without curling my lashes first before applying mascara. My lashes also appear stronger and less prone to dropping off when I clean my mascara off at night.
Ultimately, which lash serum you go for depends on your budget and what you want out of it. For me, I found that Talika Lipocils Expert was better for helping new lashes grow and I preferred the texture and how my lashes felt with it on. Remember that every product works differently for everyone so you might have to test it for yourself before you decide if its good or not. What I have is a rough guide of my experience – yours might be different.
Did I manage to confuse you? Good :P
Do you have your experience to share on either lash serum mentioned? I know there are other lash serums out there but queries I’ve received have been limited to just either Talika or L’Oreal so lets keep it to these so they don’t get even more confused ok? :)
