I've been using the same, not great, eyelash curler (La Cross) for years and years for my stick straight, fine yet long eyelashes, and finally am hunting for a better one. This isn't it. While I find this does do a much better job at curling my lashes, after going over each eye roughly 2-3x, the chrome on the back of the curler has already worn off after about 2.5 weeks and now the metal leaves a dingy residue on the skin under my eyes where the metal rests during curling. Ugh. Hence the 2 rating for the "packaging quality." I never had this problem with the La Cross. The residue that is left behind is hard to remove, especially since I curl my lashes after applying foundation and under eye concealer. I've cleaned the curler just prior to use and it still happens. It's like the base metal itself is transferring color to my skin. I do love the cushy-ness of curler, though. Maybe I'll just try transferring the pad back to my old La Cross. Prior to this I tried an ELF eyelash curler, which I threw out after 3 uses. The pad stuck to my lashes after I curled them and pulled them out each time.
I'm saving my pennies for a Shu Uemera.
I HATE this curler. Revlon's eyelash curlers are the worst. They cut my lashes off. I was wondering why I had a patch of eyelashes that were missing. Just to be sure that it was this curler, I tried the other eye. (yes, stupid me). And....my eyelashes were cut off again.
If you want to keep your eyelashes, I would recommend a high quality eyelash curler like Shiseido.
I don't understand all the negative reviews! It does what it does, curls my lashes:)
To me, all eyelash curlers are similar; they all curl your lashes. Eyelash curlers won't pinch unless you make it pinch.
This curler gave me amazing lashes after my mascara
This is the only eyelash curler I've tried, and if this is how all of them are, I'm not interested. It's not that it does a bad job at curling my lashes, which it actually does a rather good job, but the fact that it pinches so bad on me. I have red marks on the sides of my eyes everyday after using this tool. Also, it does an awful job at getting outside and the insides of my eye. The middle is always a perfect curl, but the rest of my lashes go straight down. I haven't been using an eyelash curler lately, since I got rid of this one. I will be looking into using the E.L.F one.
I think the elf's eyelash curler works way better for me personally. I'd truly recommend it any day over this. Plus its only $1. *Watch for elfs sales because I got mine for only $0.50 !! Last thoughts about this revlon lash curler: I can say it did work a bit, but more so pulled to hard at the lashes. It really only worked well when heated...which can be an extra step aka extra pain in the arse
So-so curler. There are much better ones out there. I tried many of them, and I found that curlers from Laura Mercier and Japonesque works very well for me.
I really like this eyelash curler. It fits my eye shape well enough that I can use it without peeking in a mirror. It's much flatter than some other drugstore eyelash curlers. For example the ELF one was much too round for me, but the revlon fits great, and is better quality than the physician's formula curler. For reference, my eyes are deep set and a round almond shape. It's attractive too- mine is black with red pads. It provides a decent curl at moderate pressure and the pad is sturdy and hasn't worn down even after a year's worth (maybe more) of use. It comes with an extra pad in the box as well. I recommend for medium sized asian eyes or anyone that needs a curler with a flatter curve than the one they're currently using.
The part of the curler that actually makes contact with your eyelashes - is very oddly shaped for its intended purpose, which makes it difficult to use. It did absolutely NOTHING in regard to curling my lashes. Don't waste your money!
I think I have a different one, but it is really nice. I have a picture on my account if you want to see the one I have, I threw out the casing so I don't know which one specifically it is. It has cute hash marks on the front, and REVLON inscribed on the part that presses into the eye. It has nice pads for your fingers when you squeeze, I only pinch myself when I press it too close to my eye. It was on sale for 4 dollars at Wal-Mart so I think it's good. Curl lasts, the only thing I don't like it when the metal presses into my cheek and leaves a welt, even though it doesn't hurt and I don't even notice it. It goes away though.
