In fact, even The Telegraph published part of an interview with Academy Award winning actress Helen Mirren last year, where she sang the praises of Latisse. She said: “Quite honestly. I don’t really know what a beauty routine is. But I love beauty products, and I’m always trying new ones. One thing I consistently use is Latisse.
