The masks do a decent job covering up your glasses (if that's what you want), but you're out of luck if you want your glasses on top of them (we tried).

With the iPhone X still fresh in everybody's collective consciousness, it seems very unlikely for Apple to come forward with another tech marvel.
Basically, the new lenses are AR Mask for the iPhone X and these lenses are compatible to work with the full face of the users. It's now available for use by anyone with an iPhone X. Interestingly, the new TrueDepth Lenses feature is already made available from today itself for the iPhone X users. They appear to adhere to the face more tightly than Snapchat's other lenses.
You can clearly see how the mask sticks to your face and when you change your facial expressions, it remains mapped to your skin.
This lens puts slaps a bejeweled mask encrusted with diamonds on your face and a flower crown on your head. The technology reflect and react to ambient lighting and this is how it will project shadows and add highlights to the objects. Correspondingly, over 180 million global people use Snapchat every day to chat, play, share and capture some pictures, too. It has been nearly seven months since the announcement, but they they are finally available.
At the same time, Apple announced in January 2018 about taking all preventive steps to envelop the customer identity, along with sharing the facial mapping data to the app developers.
