These wands are usually long and have tiny bristles. They separate your lashes individually and coat them perfectly. Although, you won’t see any lengthening effect, but will surely see your lashes gone dense. Also, this type of wand is easy to use on the lower lash without creating any mess.

Thick bristle wands are normally used by everyone. These wands have thick bristles that literally coat every hair of the lash making it appear dense and thick. This wand has no lengthening effect so girls who have sparse hair and desire thick dense lashes should go with this kind of wand.

PINE CONE WAND

Just like the name suggests, the wand is pine cone shape- longer bristles at the base and thinner and sparse bristles at the top. The thin bristles at the end perfectly grips the outer lashes and coats and lengthens them nicely while the long base bristles lightly coat the inner and middle lashes. This kind of wand is used to create a perfect cat eye lash which goes well with the cat eye winged liner.

BOTTOM LASH WAND

Bottom lash wands can be used to curl and lengthen bottom lashes, but it also has many other uses. If you have smaller eyes, use it only on the outer lashes to make it look long and also use it vertically to make your sparse lashes look dense.

RUBBER BRISTLED WAND

The rubber bristled wand gives your lashes depth and apply the product in an even manner. The bristles bend easily which makes them comfortable to use. They don’t clump your lashes or make them flaky either.
