this revlon eyelash curler is kinof hard to use. I have to curl my lashes several times to get the curl that i want. I find that i have to really clamp the little the curler in order for me to get a curl . I have seen like one or 2 eyelashes fall during curling my lashes. i really want to try out shu e. eyelash curler i herd its much gentle on the eylashes.
Its so hard to curl my eyelashes with this thing. It doesn't even curl them- it just crimps them no matter how hard I try to do it right. It doesn't fit my eye ( I have smallish almond shaped eyes ) so it doesnt reach the ends of my eyelashes. I kind of hate this eyelash curler but I'll keep dealing with it until I buy a new one, I'm thinking Shiseido's eyelash curler.
My only gripe is that the handle of this curler isn't rubberized to prevent slips in your hands, I'd feel like I had more control over the tool if they would add rubber to the handle. Other than that, this curler works fine, occasionally this crimps instead of curling my lashes, but usually this does a fine job of curling my lashes. I don't have any problem with this curler reaching all of my lashes on my regular Caucasian, non-deep set eyes, but your mileage may vary depending on the shape of your eyes. Works acceptably for the price.
I had been buying Revlon eyelash curlers my whole life. Today, I stopped by Ulta and passed by the NYC products and found they had an inexpensive curler. I knew I was never happy with the Revlon, bc it crimped, it pinched and left lashes uncurled on the outer 1/3. Right now I'm very pleased with the NYC (silver/purple) curler! Revlon's sucks!
An eyelash curler is the only makeup product I use every single day. It really opens up my eyes. I've bought probably 10 of the Revlon curlers throughout the years.
The curl can be inconsistent - sometimes it does a near-90 degree crimp, but most times it's a gentle curl.
I recently tried the shu umera curler, and I find it gentler, and a better curl. But, for the price ($4 vs. $19), I'll probably use Revlon for daily use and save the Shu Umera for special events.
I'll start off by saying I have straight, medium-length eyelashes. I have a bit of trouble finding a cheap, comfortable curler to fit eye shape that also performs how I'd like it to. I purchased this product between two: Revlon and NEX Select (for all you Navy babes). I stuck with Revlon in hopes of having a better experience because of it's brand name, but boy was I wrong. This curler performs average at best for me. It pinches, crimps, is a bit rough, and is unable to reach the lashes on the ends. But, on a positive note, it performs much better than the E.L.F. curler. I will not be repurchasing.
Eyelash curler is the one thing I can't live without. For me (Asian with STICK STRAIGHT to the point of pointing down eyelashes) an eyelash curler is a MUST HAVE AT ALL TIMES. Although there are better eyelash curlers out there, this one is my favorite because I can actually afford it. I only have to spend $4 one every 3 years and I'm set.
When I'm curling my lashes, I always have to start at the base and move outwards, otherwise I'll have a really unnatural looking curve.
I'm going to lose all my eyelashes using this product. The curler pinches when I get too close and also pulls my eyelashes out when I try to get a close grip on all my eyelashes. My eyelashes get caught in the hinge part once and tool out 3 eyelashes at once. Not the best made one since I value my eyelashes more than curling them. Definitely will be looking for a better one soon.
UPDATE: I figured out over time and practice not to clip my eyelashes on the hinge and in addition it curls better if you flip the curling pad so the curvy side is up. Not much of an improvement than a hassle.
this is pretty good for my right eye only. it fits the shape and it does curl my lashes pretty well. for my left eye, though, i dont know if the shape is off or whether or not im positioning this correctly, but i always pinch myself and my eyes end up watering and my make up is messed up. other than that i do like this curler.
-can kind of curl slightly slanted/almondish eyes
-can pinch eyes if not careful
