NOTE 02/20/2014: This product has been discontinued and is now replaced by another eyelash curler. I'm not sure how that will perform in comparison. But by the look of it, I strongly suggest getting one of these while they are still in stock at a local Target. I'm afraid the e.l.f. Mechanical Eyelash Curler as we know it, is permanently gone.
This deserves the hype. It is well constructed, the handle provides a good grip, the pads provide the necessary bounce. I like that you can also buy extra replacement pads.
I hesitated on the Shiseido Eyelash Curler for quite sometime, but the shape of that is a bit too flat for my eyes. It seems much more suitable for asian eyes.
So, I went ahead and got myself the ELF, in white. It is much easier to see how my eyelashes are distributed with the white pad. It also looks so much more elegant! I can't believe it costs only one dollar!
So far I've been using it very successfully. It curls my lashes well and because the pad has just the right amount of elasticity, it never breaks my lashes in half. This is a great find!
HINT: The essential Mechanical Eyelash Curler has been sold out for a while on the website, and unfortunately ELF is not available at Target here in Canada. But you can still get it as part of one of the small eye sets. There are two of them currently available, each at only 5 dollars!
GARBAGE. Spend a little more and get yourself the black Trim brand eyelash curler, which brings 4 or 5 refill pads.
Best eyelash curler I've ever used, and for a dollar nonetheless. I bought one for my sister too. I do have big, wide eyes and decent lashes. Only con is that the pads wear out after 2-3 months and fall out but I bought the backup ones that ELF sells. Will use forever and ever- why spend more? I recommend.
I have small eyes so curling my lashes is a must to make my eyes look bigger. I've bought this curler a bunch of times because the price is great! The next cheapest curlers I've found are about $10, and not as easy to handle. I have no experience with high end curlers though.
Fits my eye shape
Feels comfortable to use
Well...I have a tendency to press too hard and thereby cut through the rubber on the bottom half of the curler and hurt my lashes.
Be gentle, though, and all will be well. :)
First of all if your eyelashes are getting cut off its because ur using it wrong and smashing to hard! I love these eyelash curlers they work great just like the expensive ones do and they only cost $1
if i could give this no lippies i would. don't be cheap and buy this, it will cut your eyelashes. save yourself some grief and buy a real eyelash curler.
I love this for curling my lashes but every now and then I pinch my eyelid and it hurts. But I'm clumsy though.
I love this curler it really makes my eyelashes lengthen only thing is once its done its done lol if that makes since like when that rubber thing falls off just buy a new its only $1 anyways its not like revlon thats the same thing but except its like $7
This is my first eyelash curler. I bought it because I've never had any problems with E.L.F. before, and it wouldn't be too much of a loss if it didn't work. I have curly lashes already, but the ones on the outer edge droop down and get tangled in my lower lashes. I figured that and eyelash curler might help, so I bought this. I have only had t for a bit, but I haven't had any problems so far. I like the size and the shape of it fits my eyes very well despite the fact that they're rather small. It has not chopped of any of my lashes, although this might be because I already have very thick eyelashes. I think this product is a hit or miss. It might only work for people like me who aren't looking for extreme curl and don't have thin lashes.
Please do not buy this product. It really does nothing to your eyelashes. If anything, you can end up pinching your lids or cutting your eyelashes. The cushion on this device is ridiculous. It is just a cheap piece of metal made to look like an eyelash curler that does nothing.
I know that it costs only $1. But it is not worth that much. Save your money and invest in a real eyelash curler.
I would not repurchase. In fact, I threw mine in the trash.
