amaziinng. i regret getting my Forever 21 eyelash curler.
PROS: I've tried 4 or 5 HE curlers and all of the drug store curlers, (I don't like the regular one by Revlon) this is my favorite drugstore curler, by far. This actually works very well without completely pinching them to death and damaging them, also somehow, I end up less clumped looking after using this than I do with other curlers.
CONS: The curl doesn't last quite as long as some in the "alternates" section below.
ALTERNATES: The Shu Uemera one has less curve than this. Bobbi Brown has one with less curve than this (better for my almond shaped eyes). Shiseido has one that has less curve and whose curl may last longer than this Revlon one. .
The curler is more curved than other curlers like Tweezerman and Shu Umera, so it fits my eyes better. The lashes on the outside end up being curled at the base rather than tips. Curl lasts all day.
I've only used one other eyelash curler, so I wouldn't call myself an expert in them. I have long eyelashes with a natural curl in them already. So this product only enhances what I already have. It works just fine. Doesn't pinch or break off any of my lashes and the pad stays in place. So far, so good. :)
This eyelash curler did not curl at all! I have used the regular Revlon curlers for years and have had no problems with them. This time I thought I would upgrade to the super curl thinking it would curl faster but for some reason when I tried it I did not get ANY curl AT ALL! I believed I had gotten a defective product but when I examined it I did not find anything wrong with the curler. I found the rubber to be harder than other curlers, perhaps that could be whats wrong with it? After reading other reviews it appears that other people are having the same problem. I used this curler on completely dry lashes, just like I have been doing with my other curlers but I just can't figure out why it doesn't curl. I even held it in place for 20 seconds and pressed down really hard but still nothing! I must say I am very confused. For other buyers I recommend you avoid this product because it seems as if there are too many defective products out there.
I have been cursed with short, straight, absolutely hard to curl eyelashes. I found this product and LOVE IT! I have a horrible time finding an eyelash curler which will actually curl my eyelashes and make my lashes look normal. Most curlers bend my lashes and this eyelash curler is WONDERFUL. It actually curls my lashes and looks natural. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
My HG eyelash curler. Ive read some bad reviews but this works for me. Ive gone through several eyelash curler and my biggest gripe is that the cushion wears quickly because the metal digs into it as you curl. I am happy to say that this cushion has not given in at the slightest and Ive been using it for almost 6 months.
It delivers a nice curl with medium pressure applied.
Does not pinch.
I don't see the rubber sold separately but if I ever need a new rubber, Id buy this product again.
Very disappointed with this eyelash curler.
I got it mainly because of the packaging and the claims.
It did nothing. nothing. nothing.
It doesn't fit my eye shape, it doesn't curl AT ALL and when I clamp it down I feel like I'm using 50 lbs.
Now what makes it even worst is it smudges my eye makeup on the inner part. So I have to wipe the curler EVERY SINGLE TIME I put it back on my lashes to either curl/re-curl.
And ontop of that apply more eye shadow/liner.
Waste of time, effort, and money!!!!
ELF eyelash curler is better, and cheaper :)
This is awful. A waste of $5. I've been using Shu for 5 years and am out of replacement pads. I picked this up thinking it would work fine. It doesn't curl at all and I felt like I had to squeeze it way too hard to get it to work.. and it did NOTHING.
I like it. It curled my lashes nicely. No need to squeeze the life out of your lashes to get results. I'm not sure why this lash curler doesn't work on others. Maybe your lashes are still damp from the shower or your moisturizer?
The clamp is curvier than shiseido's so I have to be careful and not rush curling my lashes lest I pinch my asian eyes. Which is the same for any lash curler anyway. Maybe they could choose a different color because it's a challenge to see if you got all you lashes through the clamp with the black color.
TIP: Make sure your lashes are dry and don't squeeze to hard. Take your time as you gently squeeze the clamp together to get curved lashes. Warming up the contraption with a blow dryer for a few seconds helps to speed up the lash curling process. Just warm it up enough to touch but not burn your eye lids.
