Here it is in all of its chic French glory: the Talika Lipcils Expert. This lash serum has been around for a long time. It was originally introduced in 1948. Since then, researchers have optimized the formula by encapsulating its plant extracts, which include witch hazel, apple, nettle, horse chestnut, and St. John’s wort, in liposomes to increase their penetration.
The brand lists a few other ingredients along with the plant extracts. There are peptides to reinforce the root of the lashes and slow loss. There are silk proteins to “sheath” the lashes and encourage them to curl. And there is coleus forskohlii, a tropical plant extract that the brand says can boost the natural pigmentation of the lashes by spurring melanin production.
