Mascara Guard- Tired of getting mascara on your eyelids?

.

I have had many questions on how to avoid getting mascara on your eyelids upon application, and sorry I am barely getting around to it now! I actually bought this mascara guard back in January I believe from a little Asian store near the BF's house (for any of you that live in Southern California, it's in the Diamond Life Plaza), for around $3. I went back recently and they didn't have anymore so I am not sure if they are just out of stock. But you can also find it here on this website for around $6 Onatoko.com, and the one shown is the EXACT one I bought.

I hardly use mine because I forget or I am in a rush so I just apply a few coats and I am good, so I rarely deal with it getting on my eyelid since I hardly try to make it "perfect", but if you are looking for something like this to avoid getting mascara on your lid, then I highly recommend this one since it also comes with a comb to get any clumps out.









There are many other versions of mascara guards such as these, the Shape and Guard by Brenda Christian, or the i-Lash, these are reverse versions (the handle is on top, the curved part fits the shape of your eye), it also catches fallen eyeshadow during application of mineral eyeshadows or pigments.


Alice Cosmetics also has their version at $3.99.

Neat gadget! My lashes are long and I tend to get mascara on my lids. Thanks for telling us about it!

this is very interesting! I just started using Clarins Double Fix Mascara that makes all mascarawaterproof in a jiffy and it stops mascara falling off to my face too.

but for application, this will be a very handy tool. I am going to check out local beauty supply to see if we have anything similar.

thanks

sab said...

ooh! very handy! :)

I have a mascara guard and it did help "train" me into not getting mascara all over my lids but I no longer use since I've gotten much better in applying mascaras. Lol. Occasionally I still use it if I don't wanna risk messing up my eyeshadow.

WOW interesting and very useful item.. that's a smart idea. I guess you don't need an engineer to come up with something so useful and convenient.

jeSmakeup said...

aha crazy! asians always thinkin up new handy things!
i saw some girl on youtube simply use an index card or something.
luckily i've nailed my technique. i haven't messed up w/ mascara in a while.
maybe i'm due for a little mess up soon haha.

Lydia said...

i HATE GETTING MASCARA ON MY EYELIDS! I need to try one of these out! :)

How clever! I do find Panacea81's tip (on Youtube) really effective. When I tilt my head back while applying, I tend not to get any mascara on my eyelid.

Ethereal Prey said...

zomg I have that thing, but i stopped using it cause it started to become a pain, so i just use the relvon eraser pen instead....lol!

eBeautyBlog said...

OOOhhh This is way too cool! And it's cheap too. Thanks for the heads up!

Livia said...

oh wow.. I've been seeing these in cosmetic areas in the malls but they had Chinese writing on the container that I couldn't understand and I never figured out what these were for! Lol.. thank you so much for sharing this! I get problems with applying mascara every now and then, so I think I'll get myself one of these mascara guards. :) thanks again Vanessa.

Hmm...I used to use Index Card for the same thing, and it works GREAT! I guess my wallet's happy! LOL! Neat gadget though!

AnnaBanna said...

vanillasmush said...

Tracy said...

Thanks so much for this! I never even knew this type of product existed, and this is something I can really use. I'll have to go out and find one now.

Askmewhats said...

OH MY!!! I need this!!! my lashes are super short and i always get them on my lids!! And I could NEVER be able to put mascara on my lower lashes..!!!!

love-kat-tun said...

this is actually really cheap in Japan , I got it for like 300 yen , and it's really good...

rmcandlelight said...

I need this for my bottom lashes because my lashes are almost invisable.

Carla said...
