I usually love Revlon products, but this eyelash curler just agitated me to no end. It kept pinching my eyelids sometimes if i wasn't careful. It was hard to keep clean cause i re-curl my eyelashes sometimes so my mascara sticks all over it and i found it kept getting gunky in the sides and even soaking it in hot water didn't help. They also don't sell the cushion pads for these separately, so you had to buy a whole new one because i bought other cushion pads, thinking they'd fit, yeah they don't. But i did like how i could curl my lashes from the base, instead of getting my eyelashes going all over the place.
I really like this curler, because it's not more curved and so fits my eyes better than others I've tried. That way the lashes on the outside of my eyes actually curl at the base and not near the tip.
This is an OK lash curler for me. Like many other reviewers, I had problems with it pinching my eyelid if I was not careful. And I had to go easy with it or end up with bizarrely bent eyelashes. But what really made me cranky was not being able to find replacement pads. So I had to discard this one and buy a whole new one - must be one of the many ways Revlon maximizes its profits. And no, I did not buy the same kind to replace this one.
I'm surprised this doesn't get better ratings because I have tried several eyelash curlers from the drugstore and this is the only one that I can use. All the others are too big, not curved enough, or pinch... this one *almost* fits my eyes, I still have to really maneuver it around to get all the lashes, but so far I haven't found anything better. I guess I have small eyes. Everyone loved ELF but I couldn't reach as many lashes and found it painful. I have purchased a few of these, after a few years the pads wear out and the grips for the fingers don't fit anymore, but it's cheap so it's not a big deal. Maybe someday I will buy a HE one, the Mally one looks promising, but for now Revlon is the only one I can stand to use.
I was surprised that I would find my HG eyelash curler at the drugstore, but I did! I love this Revlon curler and have had it for over a year. It gives my lashes a good, long-lasting curl/lift and the curler itself is durable and easy to use. I like the cushions in the finger holes, it actually is a nice touch that makes eyelash curling more comfortable and allows for a better grip. I believe the spring helps add additional curl as well. Definitely a nice budget buy, highly recommended.
so, i'm on my second curler now, and i happen to LOVE it. i think it works best on my eye shape (i'm asian) because it's a tad flattened. also, many reviewers have complained about it pinching. the thing is, once you get used to the shape of a certain curler, and you switch the curler, it's really hard to control the new one, until you get used to it. anyway, i would totally buy this curler again for a third time. :]
I got this a while ago...it does the job (sorta) but it sucks...the curler doesn't even reach some of my eyelashes.
And the curl doesn't even last.
Do not buy.
I really hate this curler, i dont know why the price is so jacked up on it either. I bought this one b/c the price was higher, thinking it would be better. I liked my dollar one better from trim. The curl pads last forever compared to cheaper ones but everything sucks about it. The springs can rip out peach fuzz on your face, it does not curl your lashes hardly at all. It just not good.
I like this better than my old NYC curler, but this tends to pinch a lot. I feel like the curls are actually more of a rounded straightness, not an actual curl. I probably would not but this again, and will get rid of it once I can get around to buying a new curler.
This is for the Revlon gold cushioned-grip eyelash curler.
I lost my Shu Uemura curler and had to find another one quick. I tried the Sonia Kashuk white plastic one which is junk. In desperation, I bought the Revlon cushioned-grip curler. My lashes are long, but straight. For me, the Revlon works great. It catches all my lashes and curls them well right away. If I overdo it, I get too much curl. If I heat the curler, the curls last even overnight. This cheapo Revlon works better than my Shu Uemura ever did! continued >>
