Frequent user question about this product: why can’t you just use a business card or credit card? Well, you could. But do you really want to cut up all that paper?

Lash Card

Birchbox Breakdown

Sometimes the rest of your face just gets in the way when you’re applying mascara. Even when you’re careful, it inevitably smudges on your eye lid and below your bottom lashes. Now there’s a way to prevent these common snafus: Lash Card, based on the makeup artist trick of using a cut out business card. This thick card keeps smears away and can also be used to separate any clumps. It comes in a cute package that slides right into your makeup bag.

How it Works

The card is designed to cover the eyelid so that you can paint, paint, paint your lashes without worrying about any stray formula. It’s also thin enough to get into the corners of your eyes and has two different sized curves so you can pick the one that fits your eye best.

How to Use

The individually wrapped cards are cut to fit above your eyelid and only meant to be used once. After you remove the card from the package find the curve that best fits your eye. Don’t push too hard, but lift your lashes up onto the card and apply your mascara just as you otherwise would. Use the card to separate any clumps or to coax your lashes into the desired curve.

I don't like how it doesn't fit my bottom lashes and it would be better if it was curved but other then that it's my go to eyelash card

Love these!!
Purchased

I love these little cards! I just switched to an all-natural mascara, and while I love the mascara, it's super-messy to apply and was really making me frustrated (tons of clumps and smearing all over). These cards allow me to get right to the root of my lashes and result in the best coating possible while preventing any smearing in my eye area. I've used the same one over and over (just wipe off any smudges or let them dry), so they definitely last for way more than one use.

Helps Avoid Clumps

This card is more flimsy than I was expecting but it does help avoid clumps in my mascara. It is also nice to not get any excess mascara on my eye lid when applying.

Perfect

These cards are perfect for avoiding that moment when you mess up your eyeshadow by pressing too hard with your mascara wand or blinking. Perfect little tool to avoid that ohh S**t moment!

seems great but isn't

I was kind of excited about these at first, because I hate clumps, but using the card didn't make that much of a difference. A lot of product comes off on they card, which you then throw away. Not recommended.

Helpful

This lash cards are very helpful. Very simple design, and I realized that you can actually get four uses from each card so that is like having 40 cards not 20! Use each end on the front, flip it over and do the same on the back! Love them.

Perfect..

These actually do work very well.. I bought them thinking "whatever".. They arent going to work.. But they do .. They work perfectly.. The best part is you can use the same one over and over again..just take a makeup remover and wipe it off then let it dry..

Great!

It works good, but it is hard to brush through my lashes all the way but other than that it works amazing. And it didn't cost that much so I think it was a good purchase.

A great idea

There were a couple issues with these Lash Cards. Firstly, budget conscious women do not like throwaway cardboard junk. These are a great idea, however they could use material improvement. Make them out of cleanable plastic, and affix a light adhesive to the top to hold the product in place so self-use is much easier.

Weeelllllppppp...

When I saw these while scrolling through the Birchbox Shop, I knew I had to have them!!! I'm not exactly sure how in the "h-e-double hockey sticks" how to use them. I'm assuming its due to my lack of coordination.

On the other hand, I handed them out to all of the women at work, and they agreed, I'm unbelievably uncoordinated... As they loved them.
