Most people with sunglasses either keep them on top of their heads when not in use, or lose them in their bags. It’s a shame to lose or break your sunglasses especially during the summer. Portocchiali is a strap that clips to the back of your collar and loops around with a place to hand your glasses from or a thinner strap that reaches up to the arm of the glasses. For this purposefully conspicuous product, the creators only offer one reward tier at €69. Portocchiali is a Belgian product that has a €30,000 goal for a month-long campaign on Indiegogo.
When applying makeup, most women focus on their eyes and, more specifically, their eyelashes. In order to maintain their best feature, women carry around multiple tools to achieve a beautiful look. TWILASH combines all of these tools in a Swiss army knife-like product. TWILASH features mascara with a brush, an eyelash enhancer, eyelash separator, curler and mascara remover. The compact version costs $13 while the regular goes for $30 on Indiegogo with an estimated delivery date of May 2014 (even though the campaign ends in June). TWILASH hopes to raise $20,000 in a two month campaign.

Walking, cycling, and jogging at night are greatly improved by increased visibility. Vega Edge presents a wearable light for such occasions. The light offers different flashing modes and is made with leather and magnets so that it can clip onto the edge of any garment or bag and is far more discreet than other night-time visibility aids. Choices of light color, shape and leather are all customizations that Vega’s creators offer. Buyers of this light will even have the option to change the flashing pattern of the light if they wish. One early Vega Edge goes for $55 CAD with an estimated delivery date of August 2014. Vega hopes to raise $32,000 CAD in its 21-day Kickstarter campaign.
Those who wear spectacles often have to deal with the annoyance of having them slip down the bridge of one’s nose, declining along with their eyesight as their ages advance. For those for whom contacts are an undesirable option. FreeUp addresses your spectacle lowered friction with a temporary, transparent strip that bespectacled creator Joseph Chang vows is unmatched by alternatives and you can judge for yourself in May 2014 by offering $10 for a one-week supply. The video is worth a quick watch for the phrase “nose profile” and watching Chang going cross-eyed for a moment as he affixes the product. FreeUp doesn’t seem like a product most would need every day, but one can see it coming in handy for exercises that generate a lot of nose perspiration.
