Today, I realized that the "eyelash curling brush" that my best friend found in my old bathroom drawer was actually a stick used for cleaning food out of my sister's braces. I used that thing for years. FML

I don't see how no one saw this. Some ppl are clean freaks. It's not improbable that they cleaned their braces cleaner after every use. But seriously. You kinda deserved it. If you share a bathroom you should have known that it wasn't yours.

Never noticed how messed up and dirty it was for an eye curling brush? I mean, there was no way you couldn't have noticed how messed up it got by only using it for your eyelashes.

Yea i wash my brush off after i finish the top of my mouth, then after i finish the bottom. But i thow it out after a while, and if it was the same brush for years, your sister is pretty gross.


OP here. I visit this site literally everyday so I finally decided to make an account and as I was surfing through the randoms page, I found my old FML! LOL My explanation for this mishap is that those stupid braces cleaning brushes look similar to mascara wands and my friend and I were under the age of 10 at the time that we used this "eyelash curling brush" and we were clearly inexperienced with makeup. When I found out that brush was actually my sister's old braces cleaner, I was pretty disgusted. I don't think I ever told my friend about it either lol

Well, there are two different cultures at work here - you can't simply call one type of spelling dumb because, using that logic, I can go around saying words like color, gray, and spelled look dumb too yet I do not because there's rude, ignorant, and extremely arrogant.

I wonder sometimes if people run their comment through their mind a few times just to make sure it makes sense and has relevance to the topic but.... I guess not.

And an eyelash curler is not the same thing as an eyelash curling brush. An eyelash curler is made of metal and works sort of the same way a pair of scissors does, but instead of cutting it squeezes. Orthodontists often give their patients brushes that resemble the brushes that come with mascara tubes. I can see how someone could mistake on for the other, although I don't know why OP simply wouldn't use the brush that came with the mascara.

The sticks for cleaning out braces look a lot like mascara brushes. I could see how someone could think it was for eye lashes, but I wouldn't put something that close to my eyes that I didn't buy myself. Where did OP think it came from?
