i bought this because i had a coupon and my makeup artist friend recommended it to me. i ended up paying like 3-4 bucks for it. honestly, i think it's better than my shu uemura one. it's hard to curl my left eye with the shu one but i didn't have that problem with the revlon one. this one actually curled my lashes better than my shu because it even got the corner lashes that shu didn't get. i guess it's personal preference because i think the revlon one fits my eye shape better. for a couple bucks, there's nothing to lose. try it out! :)
This is my favourite curler and I have used many. I've used the Shu and Shiseido curlers, but they all pinch my eyes and pull my eyelashes out. I've lost about 7 eyelashes with those curlers! I have Asian eyes that do not have a crease, so I don't know why those curlers didn't work for me. Anyways, the Revlon curler did not pulled any of my lashes out and does not pinch. The only thing that is bad about it for me is that it didn't reach the lashes on the corner of my left eye. My right eye, however, curves beautifully.
Revlon is a brand that I had always trusted in the past, and that's why I decided to shell out the extra money for the fancy gold eyelash curler. The plastic bag it comes in is nice and reusable too. Well, this works for the first few times on a curl, but the pad then wears out quickly, and you're only given one extra pad. After the pad wears out, good luck getting a decent curl. And I always pinch myself with this. I have hated curling my eyelashes for a long time because I have always associated it with pain and having droopy lashes in the end anyway. I wouldn't recommend this. I know $20 is a lot of money to pay for an eyelash curler, and I'm hoping that when I get my Shiseido it'll be as good as everyone claims it is, because I'm tired of hurting myself with this thing. This contraption is also probably why I lose my lashes. And the square lash effect that everyone is talking about is so true. I don't know what the best eyelash curler is out there, but this certainly isn't it--unless you're some kind of pain-loving masochist.
I don't know how much my Asian eyes have to do with the quality of this eyelash curler, but it does not curl the lashes on the outermost edges of my eyes. I don't have the typical almond-shaped eyes, so my eyes aren't completely different from a Caucasian's eyes mind you. Also, this curler doesn't give a natural curl. It only crimps your eyelashes vertically upward, so it's not too natural looking. I paid 7 bucks for this curler and it is the first one I have ever bought, but even without trying other curlers, I can tell you that this isn't the one you're looking for.
i had recentrly lost my plastic cheap maybelline eyecurler so i decided to give revlon a try and bought the silver one because the lady said it was the best (comparing it to the gold one). Got home and almost popped my eye out, and i am NO beginer when it comes to curlers.
then i decided to try the gold one. Same thing WORST curler on the market stay away from it.
i think the problem is the design it doesn't fit my "eye".
Doesn't curl my lashes well, gives me 90 degree curves which are terrible looking. I also never managed to get it close enough to my lash line. It takes a LOT of squeezing to get the curl to go on. My eyes was just not suited for the shape. I nipped the corners of my eyes so many times trying to get the complete curl. Too much effort, mediocre results. I've just bought a Shiseido Eyelash curler which is so much better and easier to use.
This is a cheap, poor quality eyelash curler. I bought it back when I didn't know any better. It doesn't really "curl" my lashes, it kind of just bends them in a weird upwards angle but only after you hold it for a long time. Otherwise, you get no results at all. Also, the replaceble rubber part splits in half lengthwise after awhile. I removed it once to replace it, and I found a few lashes trapped in there! So it's making me LOSE lashes without me knowing. Horrible, will never purchase again, I'd rather spend a bit more cash to buy a way better curler.
This is for the old school Revlon curler. I bought this awhile back coz I saw good results on my friend who has long lashes. Result? WORST NIGHTMARE EVER AND WILL NOT RECOMMEND TO ANY ONE AT ALL! To be honest I do love the fact that it DOES curl my short, straight Asian lashes and it is dirt cheap. But this eyelash curler RIPPED OUT A CHUNK OF MY LASHES!!!!! This shouldn't be called an eyelash curler, it should be called an eyelash cutter! I had to go with no lashes in the center of my right eye for about half a year! HORRIBLE PRODUCT! DO NOT PURCHASE! I don't want anyone out there to go through what I did. No curls are worth losing your lashes for! I am sticking with my Shu Uemura. PS: I even tried the new futuristic looking one too, does not work at all.
I bought this one because the Maybelline curler wasn't in stock, but I did get about the same "turn out" as I did with the Shu eyelash curler for 1/4 of the cost. I love it for the price. Would buy again, after I try the Maybelline curler and don't like it.
Very basic. Great price. I got it onsale :) I was debating between this one or a fancy expensive one, but I decided on the Revlon curler and I love it, even for my Asian eyes. Definitely works, but takes a few times practice in front of the mirror.
