Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Eve's Mascara is an unlockable passive item.


  • 2x damage multiplier.
  • -0.5 shot speed.
  • Removed in Repentance 0.5x tears / 2x tear delay multiplier. (The player's tear value will always be halved.)
  • Added in Repentance 0.66x tears / 1.5x tear delay multiplier.


  • Removed in Repentance Eve's Mascara is DPS neutral, though often the reduction of shot speed is a downgrade.
  • Combos very well with any item that scales with damage but not with fire rate, such as Rotten Baby Rotten Baby or Added in AfterbirthFate's Reward Fate's Reward.
  • Added in Repentance Eve's Mascara is effectively a 33% increase in DPS, and the shot speed down is no longer as detrimental due to changes in how range works.


  • Epic Fetus Epic Fetus: Missiles are not affected by low shot speed and the fire rate difference is negligible, granting double damage with nearly no downside.
  • Mom's Knife Mom's Knife: The Knife is not affected by shot speed. Tears down and 2x damage multiplier still apply.
  • Added in Afterbirth †Trisagion Trisagion: Beams turn black and do double damage. The low shot speed makes beams damage enemies more frequently.
  • Added in AfterbirthTech X Tech X: Tech X actually benefits from low shot speed due to it staying on enemies longer and is also not affected by range, giving pretty much no downside.


  • Added in AfterbirthDiplopia Diplopia: The damage and tear multipliers do not stack. The shot speed decrease does stack.
  • Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus / Ipecac Ipecac: Shots travel a very short distance, so having Added in AfterbirthHost Hat Host Hat or Pyromaniac Pyromaniac is strongly recommended.
  • Eve's Mascara Eve's Mascara: No further effect when stacked.
  • The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico Technique: Not recommended. Tear travels very slowly, making it hard to kill mobile enemies.
