“To comb or to brush?” Now that’s a good question. The eyes are the windows to the world and in that sense; beautiful eyelashes could be equated to curtains or window dressings that amplifies the eyes beauty. The selection of comb mascaras as reviewed was certainly beauty food for thought. The different results, individual characteristics of each mascara made interesting finds and most definitely answered the initially question with a resounding yes to comb mascaras.
When you comb your hair with a brush, it’s gentler on the hair though it only sparingly untangles any curls and so on. A comb on the other hand, can be a little harsh but that’s because the combing action actually separates the strands of the hair ensuring that it’s completely untangled.
Interestingly, the choice of comb or brush is also important to the eyelashes when applying mascara. The comb mascara usually slim-lined in design are really good for those who prefer a lot of separation and definition.
