PRODUCT REVIEW: Tweezerman Folding iLashcomb



I never understood plastic eyelash combs. They just never "declumped" my eyelashes. Plus they break easily and it's money down the drain to have to keep buying another one. So say goodbye to those plastic eyelash combs & give a metal plated eyelash comb a whirl. You won't be disappointed. :)

The perfectly spaced, gold plated metal teeth glide through lashes to remove excess mascara, leaving your lashes looking long, lovely and clump-free.

CAN BE PURCHASED AT: Sally Beauty Supply, Tweezerman.com
PRICE: $7.00
VALUE FOR PRICE: 5 out of 5
MEETS EXPECTATIONS: 5 out of 5
OVERALL RATING: 5 out of 5

HOW I USE THIS PRODUCT:

Apply first layer of mascara
While mascara is still wet, comb eyelashes [moving up, out & away from eyes]
Comb lashes after each coat of mascara

HOW TO CLEAN THIS PRODUCT:
Part of eye-beauty maintenance is keeping peepers healthy, so clean your iLashcomb regularly with an alcohol-soaked cotton ball, make-up wipe, or make-up remover. I clean my iLashcomb after every use with Equate Facial Cleansing Towelettes, works great!

PROS:
Combs away clumps of mascara
Price isn't bad. If you take care of it, it will last a good while
Very compact & fits anywhere!
The comb cleverly folds in to protect teeth when not in use
Easy to clean

CONS:
A little hard to comb through eyelashes especially when your mascara is dry. So it's best to comb through right after you apply a coat of mascara.
The metal teeth can hurt if you do accidentally poke yourself.

OVERALL:
It's definitely worth the purchase because nobody here likes clumpy mascara. It does take more out of your time considering you have to comb through your lashes to really get that "clump free" look. But since it's so small, it easily fits into your purse so you can bring it with you.

It's important that you use this product carefully because the metal teeth are as pointy as needles [I think they are needles actually. LOL.] So even though it may be time consuming, you want to be careful not to rush yourself when using this product. But after using it several times, you start to get the hang of it and sooner or later you'll just comb right through them like nothing!

There are also many other similar ones that vary in price such as Coastal Scents, Sonia Kashuk, etc. and they all pretty much have the same effect.
