Happy Monday, family! And Happy Memorial Day. Memorial Day is an American holiday that honors our fallen soldiers. Take a moment out of your day to reflect and remember those soldiers who risked their lives for all of us. Now if that ain’t beauty, I don’t know what is.
I have been thinking about expanding Mascara Monday. Instead of seeing mascara reviews EVERY Monday, you can expect mascara discussions, tools of the trade and any other randomness we (of course I’ll need your contributions and recommendations!) come across.
Also, if you are a fellow blogger that has featured some of the same mascaras that I have featured, I will gladly link you!
On to the review!
Price: 3 out of 5 ($10 online. It was $5 at The Makeup Show NYC)
Packaging (Brush Wand): N/A
Overall: 4 out of 5
What it claims: “This non-toxic plastic device placed under the top or bottom eyelashes ensures the uniform application of mascara without disturbing other make-up or marking the skin. It brings into relief thin or sparse eyelashes making them easier to see. For thick and long lashes, mascara application goes on more smoothly and evenly.
The Myrabelle Mascara Shield can be used in the same way for eyelash tinting & applying individual false eyelashes.” (source)
The truth: I haven’t seen anything else like this before so I can’t compare it to another brand. It takes some time getting used to it but it is very effective.
What I loved about it: It allows you to really get to the roots of your lashes. Which means….more length!
What I didn’t like: It isn’t all that comfortable and made my eyes water after awhile. But I think that’s just because my eyes are used to buggin‘ out like that. Ha!
Overall: This is one of those products where you are like, “OMG, why didn’t I think of this?” It is very innovative and I find it to be really really useful. This is great for those of us out there who have a hard time applying mascara without getting the residue on the lid. Even I have this issue! And it becomes extremely frustrated when you have already applied a ton of eyeshadow. Yikes! The mascara shield prevents this from happening.
Got shaky hands? I find that this gives you more control. Especially for the lower lashes–which by the way, I never apply mascara to. And the reason why I don’t is because I always end up getting it all over the place. The shield helps with that!
And what I REALLY love about it is that it allows you to get to the root of your lashes. This is almost impossible to do with a mascara wand. I mean…you can try, but honey….I’m too afraid that I would poke myself in the eye. Ha!
Some shots of the Mascara Shield in action…
Would I recommend it?: I would! I think it’s a great little investment. Especially for serious mascara wearers out there.
