While women all over the world have positive things to say about Idol Lash, and I use it as my go-to eyelash growth serum, you still might be wondering if this product can really live up to all the hype, and if there are issues that customers are reporting.
Of course, I don’t blame you. Nobody, including me, wants to spend their hard earned cash on a beauty product that promises results and delivers nothing. So I decided to dig into this question and report my findings to you. I hope you find it helpful in deciding whether Idol Lash is right for you.
What Is Idol Lash?
It’s called several things. A growth serum, eyelash enhancer, and some even call it a growth mascara. The name is not really all that important. Just something we want you to be aware of in case you hear it mentioned differently here or when you are placing your order. It all refers to the same product.
The first thing to look for in determining whether a cosmetic product is the real deal is identifying whether there are measurable criteria used in tracking the results after using the product. Some of the key criteria I look for are:
- Have clinical trials been accomplished?
- Were the trials (if performed) carried out by professionals?
- Is the presented data accurate?
- Does the reporting entity have authority to be making these claims?
- Is there evidence to back up their claims, in the form of real testimonials from actual customers?
Beginning at the top, let’s get going.
Idol Lash Clinical Trials
The Idol Lash company has carried out in-depth, measurable, and clinically evaluated trials using scientific methodology. Measuring results with an analysis tool called SigmaScan over a 42-day period, it was proved that the application of the Idol Lash product promotes the appearance of thickening (improved density) and lengthening of the non-control eyelashes. The only variable to be introduced would be the nightly application of Idol Lash to the non-control eyelashes once each night.
Measurements taken using the SigmaScan methodology showed measurable and definable improvements at Day 14, Day 28, and finally Day 42. The measured improvements were 46%, 66%, and 72% respectively. The conclusion was drawn that indeed Idol Lash promotes significant improvement in the beautification of eyelashes when used according to company directions.
Who Performed the Study?
The Idol Lash clinical trials were performed by doctors and cosmeceutical, scientific researchers. The professional and educated component is necessary to assure the validity of claims. Given the evidence it appears that Idol Lash passes this criteria as well.
The third criteria of data accuracy receives a pass automatically because the company did its homework when putting together their study criteria. The use of SigmaScan (proven validation tool) equates to as near perfect accuracy as you can get.
Idol Lash as a company has been in business for over 15 years. Their reputation is quite positive in the industry for quality of product, clinical trials, and forthrightness when it comes to their products.
The company is cautious to alert buyers to the false claims of other less scrupulous companies and explain themselves in the process. They explain that thickening of lashes is anatomically impossible and that Idol Lash accomplishes improved density via regrowth and improved growth.
The Idol Lash company also fully reveals their clinical trials for validation.
Scam Claims, or the Real Thing?
In case you are not familiar with how a lot of reviews and scam claims work on the internet, we’ll give you a quick primer. People who use the products (hopefully) is where the testimonies and reviews come from. Scam claims are generally fraught with evidence of attack from a rival.
After an in depth analysis of both positive and negative reviews, it is obvious that the product is substantial and extremely worthwhile to those for it works. Since we know that nothing works for everyone, it is not surprising that there are reviewers who suggest the product did not work for them.
Idol Lash reports honest and transparent results. Even in their clinical trials that they were not always 100% successful and they reported the numbers as such. This evidence supports the human criteria. We are not all the same and therefore no one product or experience will be suitable for all people.
Here are some helpful reviews I found from people who were happy with the results they got. (For even more helpful testimonials, check out my Idol Lash Reviews post.)
I looooove Idol lash! I just wish it was a little cheaper since I go through about a bottle a month. This serum really does work! I’ve been using it since May of 2012, it took about 3-4 months to notice a difference.

I really like Idol Lash. It took a few weeks to really see results, and if I don’t use it for a few days, my lashes start to go back to their old puny state. But, if I keep using it, and after a few months go to every other day, it makes my lashes really long. I have been using it for about 5 months now. The other day, someone asked me if I use Latisse. So, it works. Also, I am very happy that it’s half the price of Latisse.

For me, it always helps to see actual evidence of what the product can do. Here is a typical example of the results people are getting with this eyelash serum after about 4 weeks:
