I have had a couple of these brushes over the years, so when I saw this package with the lash shield included, I thought, "Ooo! I'll try that."I use a homemade lash shield that I cut out of a piece of thin clear plastic. This looked much more professional :) The brush works just fine, but the lash shield is too thick and the wrong color. It's dark, so you can't tell if you got any mascara on your lower lashes or not. Because it's thick, it kind of pushes up on the bottoms of your lashes, and with my mascara brush, I can't really get the mascara along the sides of the lashes to thoroughly coat them. It might work better with a mascara applicator that didn't have bristles ... but don't most mascaras have bristled brushes? Anyway,I'm back to my homemade version, which looks crummy, but works real well.
Perfect for not getting mascara on my puffy eyelids…have been looking for something like this for a loooooong time
Works pretty well, the brush is a little big almost impossible to use in my opinion and the guard is a bit flimsy.
