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?

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.

Not something I use.

I appreciate there being 10 cards in the package, although I don't use these. I found them to be great quality.

big thumbs up!!

My sister mentioned that this was great to not get clumps in your eyelashes. Therefore, I decided to get them for her as a gift because she seemed really into them. So absolutely adores them and I know she would want more. Seeing her rave about this product and knowing it left a good impression on her. I suggest people to try it or gift it to someone .

Not impressed.
Purchased

Maybe I'm using this wrong. It was hard for me to use this product. I don't seem to have enough hands to hold this in place while I put on my mascara.

Better than using a credit card!
Purchased

If you have deep set eyes, this is a savior. I use them for special occasions, but they are great for everyday, too.

Interesting idea
Purchased

I think the Lash Card falls under the category of items I didn't know I needed. This is a surprisingly simple idea/item but it is super helpful for ensuring that you can fully coat your lashes when putting on mascara without it getting all over your eyelid/under your eyes.

Hard to use

Really wanted to love this , but just didn't live up the promise of ease! Found it hard to use and truthfully made it harder to apply mascara. Back to the spoon....

Cute idea

Helps keep it off my skin. Definitely can reuse these over and over again just let your mascara dry and reuse again. Like that you can use all 4 sides.

Not as useful as I hoped
Purchased

These are a little awkward for me to use so they're not as great as I was hoping they'd be. They're good for special events when I'm spending more time on my makeup.

High hopes
Purchased

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.

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