I usually don't get too excited about brushes/tools but this is one of those products that once you try it, you will wonder why you did not buy it sooner.

I have many plastic lash combs. The plastic just does not separate lashes that well. Also it does not clean well. So I end up getting out a safety pin because it has a sharp edge to really get the lashes that are clumped together unclumped. (This is potentially very dangerous and NOT recommended.)

The tweezerman metal comb really gets the clumps out easily. When done just wipe the comb off with a tissue.

I bought mine at SDM, but EDS has the exact same thing for about $3.00 less. It is a tool worth having and far superior to the plastic ones.

The above post is a review of the following product available at EDS:
Tweezerman Folding Ilashcomb
Tweezerman Folding Ilashcomb

Perfectly spaced gold plated metal teeth glide through applied mascara leaving thicker, natural looking lashes. The teeth of the Ilashcomb fold compactly into the handle for protection

I recently got it too and cannot imagine living without it! It is not as dangerous as it looks and actually quite easy to use. I've gotten so many compliments on how 'defined' my eyelashes look Smile You will never get clumpy lashes again

I bought this from EDS a few months ago. It is the best tool I own! I'm not sure how I ever lived without it.

I recycle used mascara spoolies. A clean spoolie perfectly defines lashes and removes clumps, and is much more effective and safe than a safety pin. Spoolies are easy to clean: When a mascara has met it's prime, toss the tube and clean the spoolie/handle part with soap and water, rubbing the spoolie between your fingers. Let dry and you're ready to use.

I haven't used the Tweezerman lash comb, so I can't say how it compares to a clean spoolie.

I used to use a mascara spoolie but I find that compared to the comb, the spoolie takes a lot of mascara off, whether it's excess or not. The lash comb, on the other hand, only take off mascara in between lashes that make it too gloopy.

I wasn't getting good results with a clean spoolie either. It just didn't get between all my lashes, and I'd still have some stuck together.

Just want to confirm -- that's the Tweezerman folding lash comb you are referring to, right? If not, I don't see another one at EDS.

Laughing Even having worked as a pro m/up artist, do you realize how many times I've done the exact same thing? True, that. I've got a spooly brush, but have always used disposable mascara wands to remove clumps. I've always been too lazy to buy a metal comb. Crying or Very sad

Have one, it is a must if your lashes clump when mascara is put on.

The only annoying thing is the cleaning. Because the comb is so fine I found that often masacara will be stuck between the teeth themselves. Only method that has worked successfully so far is using blotting paper, or something thin but stiff to remove the mascara.

Anyone else have a better method of cleaning? I am all ears (and eyes!).

First let me say that this lash comb is something that I will never be without. It works so well!!

cuppre for cleaning here is what I do: After combing my lashes I wipe the comb on a tissue to remove any obvious mascara. I usually do this several times. When I actually wash the comb I use shampoo and a clean spoolie to remove any mascara stuck between the teeth. This meathod works very well.

I don't own this lash comb, but it's on my [crowded] list! Laughing So I don't know how close together the teeth of the comb are to get this to work...

I was going to suggest maybe trying fine/uncoated dental floss for cleaning between the teeth of the comb.

someone suggested using a toothbrush before and that has worked so well for me! I just use warm water with it.

I've just used a tooth brush and warm water too, and it worked fine for me.

When I use a make up brush I always spray some brush cleaner on a tissue and clean it off.
I just found my tweezerman comb this weekend and tried it again and I tried the same method as I use on my brushes and it worked great!

Thank you everyone for the suggestions!

I have been wiping the comb right after use, but you know how it is, the little black bits still get stuck. I might just get an old toothbrush and scrub it in between use as well.

next question: how do you stop poking yourself in the eye with that thing! Laughing

omgosh, I just pictured that in my head Shock

I've never had that happen to me either. I usually point the comb at an upward angle towards my eye (less than 45 degrees) instead of pointing it flat straight towards the eyes. Also, slowness is key! lol

I guess I am just clumsier than the average joe.
It hurts a little bit but luckily have never actually done any major damage to the eye ball! *crosses fingers*

I will slow down as you have suggested Tosca and I will angle it differently as well, per poofybabypenguin's suggestion!

poofybabypenguin = the cutest name! I wish this forum allowed icons Very Happy.

I've got both the Tweezerman verion and the Sonia K version (available at Target) and keep one at home and the other at my desk at work.

A metal lash comb is a MUST HAVE product if you've been using a lash growth serum like JMAIE/Revitalash/LushLash because sooner or later your lashes will get so long (especially in the corners) that these combs are the ONLY way to safely/easily remove the tangles!!!
