When you see someone with super long eyelashes, it's easy to assume that they have extensions. Getting your lashes to look as lengthy as you want without settling for a set of falsies or making a salon appointment probably seems too good to be true.
But, the real deal is possible with the help of an eyelash growth serum. These treatments are enriched with conditioning peptides and fatty acids that stimulate and promote growth and stronger eyelashes.
The best part: they're pretty simple to apply, too. After removing your makeup and cleansing your face, all that's required of you is taking a few extra minutes to brush the serum along the base of your eyelashes. Don't expect to see results right away, but with regular continued use, you'll start to notice your eyelashes are longer and stronger over time.
Here, we've rounded up the best eyelash growth serums to help you achieve extension-length lashes.

Your dreams of rocking mascara ad lashes can finally come true-without the use of falsies or extensions. Revitalash Advanced is the Rolls Royce of lash conditioners. Not only does the serum grow ultra-lush length as it promises, but nourishing ingredients like green tea, ginseng, and biotin also shield your lashes from external irritants to keep them from breaking.

3. Vichy LiftActif Serum 10
Consider Vichy's innovative serum to be an eye cream with a day job. The potent blend of hyaluronic acid and ceramides boast serious anti-aging benefits for your peepers, diminishing crow's feet and fine lines, as natural plant sugars give your lashes a boost, and restore the moisture they may have lost to excess eye makeup.

5. Talika Lipocils Conditioning Gel
While apple and soy sound more like ingredients found in the latest must-try juice cleanse, Talika has tapped into their nourishing aspects to serve up what we're dubbing green juice for your lashes. All-natural elements like nettle, horse chestnut, and witch hazel stimulate eyelash growth as the soy lecithin travels into each hair follicle to deliver the active ingredients.

6. Rodial Glamolash Eye Lengthening and Thickening Serum
The vitamin B5 in Rodial's serum works in the same way as the daily vitamins your mom used to make you take as a kid to strengthen your bones. The formula treats each individual lash from the inside out, as the brand's blend of peptides and wheat proteins help you achieve your maximum length.
Rodial | $75
7. Lashfood Phyto-Medic Eyelash Conditioner
While many eyelash serums use a blend of wheat proteins as their active ingredients, Lashfood's green version leaves gluten, as well as parabens and synthetic fragrances, out of the mix. This treatment's blend of organic medicinal herb extracts stimulates your hair follicles to promote growth.

8. Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum
We've often swept on a few coats of Diorshow mascara and wished the lengthening effect wouldn't wash away with our makeup, but the brand's innovative serum has made our dreams a reality. Swipe a layer on before applying mascara as a primer, or use at night to let the body-building soy proteins work their magic.
Dior | $30
9. Shiseido Full Lash And Brow Serum
If you wish your lashes and your brows were fuller, Shiseido's serum is safe to use on both. On top of streamlining the number of products you're using, this treatment also eliminates a messy application. The flocked-tip applicator makes it easy to get to hard to reach spots without wasting any serum.
10. No.7 Lash Impact Lash Serum
If you're a lash serum rookie, No.7's version serves as a great starting point into the world of lengtheners and conditioners. After a few nights of use, you'll notice longer, darker lashes, with full results after eight weeks. Plus, thanks to the wallet-friendly price point, you can afford to stock up.
