Day 52 Silly Japanese: Mascara Guard

image

Spotted in Daiso (a Japanese dollar store): a plastic mascara guard to prevent mascara from getting on your eye lids during application. Previously, I’d heard of doing such a thing with a tissue or a business card. Simple. Surprisingly obvious yet no one really thinks of it. (I’ve been reading fashion and beauty mags for fifteen years without coming across this tip.) And here the Japanese have turned it into a plastic utensil. Can’t you just use the paper? Save some carbon?

I’m still tempted to buy it though.
