A brow and lash comb is one of those accessories that you wouldn't think you need...until you actually need it. I got mine from The Body Shop when I bought a whole kit of brushes, and it sat around unused until one fateful day when my mascara was feeling seriously clumpy and was making my eyelashes look like thick, black spider legs.
The lash end of this brush is like a miniature version of a hair comb, and works to separate eyelashes that have clumped together, as well as helping to remove any excess mascara.

The brow end of the brush is bristly, meant to tame and smooth unruly eyebrows, unless you're going for a wild look, in which case you can use it to ruffle them up even more.

I've discovered, however, that the eyebrow end of the brush can also be used for your eyelashes, because the bristles are sometimes more effective for removing excess mascara or separating sticky lashes than the comb end. In any case, it's a makeup tool that I'd never have thought I would need, but one which really does get its fair share of use.
Beyond it's practical application, the comb is also well made. As with all of the brushes from The Body Shop, the quality is very good. The handle is sturdy, smooth, and easy to grip, as well as looking sleek and sophisticated. If you're in the market for a brow and lash comb (which you will be someday, even if you don't think it now), this one is definitely the one to get!
