I didn't realize that my eyebrow pencil came with a built-in comb, so I bought this one. I like the eyebrow comb portion. It's stiff enough to force my crazy eyebrows to behave. It's a little scary to use for my lashes so close to my eye so I haven't tried it. I can't wear mascara anyway since I have blonde lashes, so I'm probably not going to use that end of the brush.
