Sephora Contoured Eyelash Comb Review & Photos

Sephora Contoured Eyelash Comb ($14.00) looked so interesting, I had to buy one as soon as I saw it on Sephora. It’s shaped a bit like an eyelash curler, but it’s an eyelash comb. The teeth are fine with good separation to really get between the lashes to separate for a really defined, fluttery lash without catching or pulling on individual lashes. I’ve used mine mostly after mascara to minimize clumping and to ensure a good, even coat of mascara throughout the lashes. Sephora says it can be used to brush product through the eyelashes, but as you might expect, it can become quite the clean-up job to remove mascara from all of the teeth. I don’t find it as effective at applying a more mascara-like product to the eye as a mascara fan brush, but it does work. I just think it does better (and really does it well) at separating lashes and removing any clumps from mascara.

It comes with a plastic cap to protect the metal teeth, and it folds in half for easy travel, if desired. I also found that you can bend the handle to get a better grip/fit, depending on your needs. The handle is made out of plastic, and it seemed lightweight and durable enough to travel with.

Eeek!! I squirm every time I see this thing. It looks like some instrument of torture. It sounds useful, but I can see myself, half-awake in the morning, rushing around, slapping eye makeup on, and accidentally stabbing or scraping my eyeball with this.

LOL! A lot of times I place it by my lash line, then I slowly blink, which allows my lashes to get in-between the teeth, then comb through. No fears of accidentally maneuvering into the eyeball!

I agree about the torture device! Believe it or not, though, I have always used a large safety pin. It sounds scary, I know, but I just feel like I have more control with just one small point, than dozens at once.

I sat next to a girl in 10th grade algebra who used a large safety pin, and I’d cringe every time she pulled it out… Not only were we in a bungalow classroom, which vibrated like mad if anyone so much as sneezed, this was in SoCal, and an earthquake could happen at any moment. She also kept it in the bottom of her makeup bag…

I also use a large safety pin. Who knew this frightening technique was so common? Yes, I have stabbed myself in the eye with the pin before, but that hasn’t stopped me from continuing to use it! The results are just too good.

Hi Christine! Can you comment on the two long teeth on the ends? What is the purpose of those? Are they dangerously poke-y? I like the idea of this comb since I prefer long fluttery lashes and don’t like them to be too dark/dense, but I’m super-scared of things coming too close to my eyeballs. Thanks!

I really have no idea to be honest! They don’t seem dangerously pokey to me, and the two outer-most ones are very rounded so those for sure aren’t sharp at all. I’ve had less trouble using this than regular metal lash combs, but have you tried any lash combs before? They have plastic ones, too, which may be less pointy and a good “starter” to see if it’s a tool that you can work with!

I have the lash comb from Real Techniques and it has a metal lash comb like this one does. I actually REALLY like it! Most lash combs are plastic and aren’t separated enough to really get through my lashes without gunking things up worse. The metal teeth separate my lashes and remove excess product with ease and I just use some coconut oil to clean the leftover mascara off. Thanks for this review, I didn’t know Sephora had a comb like this!

I hear ya! I think if you’re someone who tends to pile on mascara or often finds their mascara clumps on their lashes, it can be super useful, but if you don’t have that issue, it’s not at all a necessity!

I have a plastic one. from Sephora. I quite like it, as it is shaped almost like this metallic one and most of all I like it because it doesn’t have the wider teeth, or what you might call it, at the ends that some eyelash combs have.

This thing looks extremely scary but actually sounds useful lol. My lashes are really short so I have to pile on mascara which sometimes leads to clumps. I could totally use something like this in my life

I have a Tweezerman lash comb (the folding one) that is really good but you have to be very careful as the “teeth” are sharp, as I guess they are with this one too. But the curve on this – the shape of it – makes this look a fair bit more tricky to use and I think you’d have to be REALLY careful with this one.

I’ve yet to gouge my eye yet… but I have done so MANY A TIME with the regular lash combs. Oddly enough, I find this easier to use than my other ones!

Wow – that’s interesting and just the opposite of what I’d have thought. Maybe I need to get this after all. A lot of Sephora’s tools (brushes, sponges, etc.) are really good and reasonably priced for the good quality.

This really isn’t a new concept, I have an old Tarte metal lash comb. No one makes them. They are the best. You get used to them. I will definitely be buying this, as it is curved!

I’ve been wanting an eyelash comb with metal teeth for a while, since my last one completely died a cole of years ago (it was well over 10 years old!), so this might be one to try. That said, I’ll most likely end up waiting until I need to place an online order, and need something kind of cheap to avoid shipping costs, LOL!

I’m really digging it! I thought it was going to be totally gimmicky, but it was so torturous-looking I had to try as soon as I saw it, haha.

This tool just looks really odd to me in design. I think it would be more comfortable using a traditional comb with the handle to side of the comb & the straight teeth allows you to comb through in sections or just in the section you need. I assume that the larger rounded end prongs are to prevent poking yourself with the sharp teeth?

Christine, do you prefer this or the traditional design best?

BTW, I, too, used to use a safety pin.

Hey Christine! I was just wondering if you’ve ever tried the Tweezerman metal lash comb and could compare this one to it. I’ve gone through several of those – it works great for me, but the “difficult to clean” part is an understatement, as when I clean one of those for the 4th of 5th time, the little metal “needles” invariably start to fall out. I try to put them back in but then they fall out next time I clean it too, so I get frustrated, buy a new one, and repeat the process. (I’m not putting it in the dishwasher or anything crazy, just soaking it standing on its comb so the tips are in eye makeup remover but not the glued-in bases, and then wiping it clean with a towel…) Have you ever had an experience like this? Whether you have or not, do you think the Sephora comb is likely to be any more durable than the Tweezerman one, or should I expect the Sephora one to also fall apart when cleaned? Thanks 🙂

I have used the Tweezerman one before, but I don’t remember having any issues with the teeth falling out (it’s been awhile since I had one, though). I have another metal lash comb from Sephora, that I’ve had for years, and I haven’t had any issues with the teeth falling out of that one either!

So glad I saw this post – I think I will give it a try. I have a Tweezerman metal comb and like it but I’m wondering if the curve in this comb will make it more effective? I saw something online a few years ago called the Perfect Lash Comb – the Sephora version is almost exactly like it although the handle design is different – I wonder if Sephora took over the design?

Ooh, I really want something like this! I am mildly obsessed with getting perfectly separated, defined, non-clumpy, not-even-a-couple-of-lashes-sort-of-mascara’d-together, so I spend a lot of time doing what this is supposed to do, but with my fingerail or a needle instead. Hardcore, LOL!

I love the idea of this! I hate, HATE clumpy lashes, so sometimes I use a lash comb to avoid that. This sounds even more comfortable to use!

This looks like some kind of BDSM sex toy! LMFAO Right up there with Sigma’s ridiculous brush washing glove. Definitely won’t be picking this up, at least not for combing my lashes! LOL

I’ll stick with my regular metal lash comb, which I paid $4-5 for. Can’t wait to see the next totally ridiculous ‘tool’ that Sephora comes out with this year. It seems like 2015 is going to be the year of disappointment as far as cosmetics and related products go, seriously.

I’ve always used metal lash combs in general, but I actually thought this was useful, not at all ridiculous. Different strokes for different folks 🙂

Hi,
because I looked at the Tweezerman comb (as this one in your review I would have to order from abroad), the online shop site I was on also showed me this lash comb of M2 beaute and I noticed it might be identical:
http://www.m2beaute.com/en/Eyelash-Comb.html

Just wanted to add this because it might be interesting that the same product is branded differently and also this new item from Sephora is not available at Sephora in France (online) but for example the M2 lash comb can be bought in some European countries (but it costs a good $10 more at least).

However, I read a lot of reviews on metal lash combs and I still find them scary XD Probably I’ll continue with cleaned mascara brushes 🙂
