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.

High hopes

As someone with fairly long lashes (who gets mascara dots on her upper eyelid), I was really hoping this would neaten up the mascara process. I don't know if it's my eye shape (which I think is pretty normal) or complete user error, but the curve of the card didn't seem to get close enough to my lashes to work properly.

Interesting

Like they say, you could make one yourself, but who wants to? And it likely won't be as good as these.

Better than I expected!
Purchased

I can use one multiple times. I like the way it helps shape my eyelashes and keeps me from messing up my eye shadow.

A Cool Tool
Purchased

I've inly used these twice, on my bottom lashes. they did work, but not as I wanted them to, but I think that was because I used a different mascara as well. I have yet to try these on my too lashes. i will soon though! I imagine they'll work well. I'm actually excited to try them. also! you can use 1 single card multiple times, even though it said not to. oops! but I can't justify using it once when it certainly can be used over again!

Hard to use
Purchased

Love this product idea but was a pain to use. If I had an extra hand this would be a perfect beauty product.

Not worth the $$
Purchased

I bought these based on an article in Real Simple Magazine . This product failed miserably, you are better off with a piece of a business card you cut yourself than these.
Don't waste your cash on this one.

pretty good
Purchased

Pretty good, not great. I use them when I'm going more heavy on the mascara. They don't fit my eye shape that well, which is the trouble with them.

it's ok
Purchased

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.
