Eyelash serums are a long-term solution to enhancing hair growth and improving brittle lashes, which can be a result of overdoing it with extensions and falsies.

They're not a quick fix, however. Most take a three-month treatment plan before you see results, so it's important to remain consistent with your applications to get the best from an eyelash serum product.

We've compiled our top 12 serums which condition, add length and thickness – and some even tint simultaneously.

All have non-drip, minute brushes for easy application for daily or sometimes twice-daily use and with regular use can give dramatically different results.

Spanning a range of prices, starting from just £8, our roundup features big-name brands such as Revitalash and The Ordinary to smaller brands like Sweed and Typology.

The best eyelash serums for long, thick and full lashes

Revitalash Advanced Eyelash Conditioner | £89 from Cult Beauty

REVITALASH
This cult favourite eyelash serum sees dramatic results with 12 weeks of use.

This is the best eyelash growth serum money can buy. It's certainly an investment but well worth the splurge if you're looking for fast, long-term results. It requires a twice-daily commitment, however, over the course of two to three months before you'll start to see a difference, so make sure you stick at it. Thanks to its BioPeptin Complex – a cocktail of peptides and botanical ingredients – it stimulates growth and reduces breakage. Simply apply a fine line along a clean, dry lash line and wait until it dries before applying makeup.

RapidLash Eyelash Enhancing Serum
This serum won't irritate sensitive skin around the eye area.

If this customer review doesn't convince you, we don't know what will. "Having worked my way through a fair share of lash growth serums, I can honestly say none comes close to Rapidlash. Super easy to use on clean lashes (I do it nightly), it works in a matter of weeks to improve the health, fullness and length of lashes. After a 4-6 weeks of daily use, I switched to twice-weekly to maintain and focus on the outer lashes for added lift."
