Didn't like it doesn't curl my lashes at all. Much prefer a covergirl for just a few more dollars.

ELF says that their Studio Eyelash Curler will "create gorgeous curled lashes that appear larger and more defined with this sleek design. Comfortably fits all eye shapes and an ergonomic shape provides control and easy of use". ELF offers two sizes of their Studio Eyelash Curler; Regular, which will curl all your lashes at once, and Mini, which is best suited for travel or for curling the outer half of your lashes. Both lash curlers retail for $3 and can be bought from ELF's website, Target, Kmart, Big Lots, and other major retailers. I got my curler during my first ever ELF haul from almost two years ago. Why did it take me so long to review it? Idk, to me a lash curler is a lash curler, but I got a request foe this review. For the record I have no idea how to review an eyelash curler, so please forgive me if this post sucks. Not that it really applies to this specific product, but ELF is a cruelty free, vegan friendly company. This beauty tool was made in China.
Wow, how does one explain an eyelash curler? I'm not even going to try, we've all seen one and ELF's is pretty standard. It's silver metal, steel I think. A small black rubber pad cushions your lashes as you curl. ELF sells a 5 pack of refill pads for $1, if you feel the need to replace your's. This eyelash curler moves fluidly and rarely pinches my lash line. The curve of this eyelash curler suits my eye shape very well. What's not to like? This lash curler is comfortable and functional to use, and has a classic look.
I have fairly thick, average length eyelashes that are just about straight, some of them even point downwards. My lashes can curl on their own with most mascaras, so a lash curler isn't really a necessity for me, I don't use mine very day, just when I want more drama. I curly my eyelashes in four separate section; right at tyhe base, slightly up from the base, right in the middle, and right below the tips. Why make such a production out of it? Because it gives a more gentle, natural curl that lasts longer. Only curling your lashes at the base causes a harsher curl that is more likely to droop or straighten out. ELF's Studio Eyelash Curler does a pretty good job of curling my lashes. The curl lasts all day with mascara, and a few hours without. I break the rule of never curling my lashes after I apply mascara. I do it all the time actually, with great results and have never lot a lash. I don't know if that's from technique, or if ELF's curler is particularly gentle.
I'm a fan of ELF's Studio Eyelash Curler. It may be basic, but it gets the job done and that is all that I ask from it. I can't imagine splurging on a luxury eyelash curler like Shu Uemura's when ELF's is perfectly functional and so affordable. This curler fits my eye shape perfectly. If I ever feel the need to buy a new lash curler, I would repurchase this one. I've been planning to purchase the mini one as well, I'm curious about half lash curlers! If you're on the hunt for an affordable full or half lash curler, why not try ELF's?

Love it. Works perfect. Cheap and cute. End of story.

After reading all these reviews I guess I am the only person who loves this curler, LOL!. I use it every day & it works perfectly for me. I do naturally have thick long lashes & this makes them curl so beautifully. I've had it for over a year. I also have the mini one but I find myself always reaching for this one. I achieve perfectly curled lashes for $3 & I'm extremely pleased with it :)

I hated this curler. It was a $1 and I ended up buying MACs curler. This one is clunky and doesn't curl my lashes at all.

This product fails epically for me. It is not flat enough to fit the contour of most Asian eyelids, thus not curling properly. Thank God it's only $1.

I used the same (awesome) Kevyn Aucoin eyelash curler for several years and, finding myself too lazy and impatient to replace the rubber pad this time, bought one of these for a dollar.
It's terrible. I want my Kevyn back.
I find it quite unwieldy, and the shape is all wrong. I can't get more than 1/4 of my lashes curled at one time. And the outer corner lashes (AKA the ones I want to curl the most)? Forget it, I'd have to stab this thing halfway into my socket to reach them with this thing.
At least I only lost a dollar!

Eh... no better than any drug store brand. Skip it. Still use my trusty Shu Semura.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination Hair: Black Eyes: Black
Sorry, the worst eyelash curler I have ever used. It is not well made, doesnt curl my lashes and very crumpsy to use.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Very Oily, Fair, Cool Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Green
This curler is not bad, especially for just $3.00.
It doesn't pinch, and it curls my straight lashes well, but it gives them a rather sharp "crimp," rather than a gentle curve, and I don't care for that.
I'll try something else next time.

worst eye lash curler i have ever used. threw it away after attempting and unsuccessfully curling my eyelashes. not worth the dollar i spent.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Hazel
Ineffective. Cushion is too soft to create a good, lasting curl to my straight lashes. Much prefer my Sonia Kashuk or Kevin Aucoin

I really don't like this eyelash curler. I don't know if it's just because it is shaped so differently from my shu uemura curler, but every time I try to curl my lashes with this curler I pinch or almost pinch my eyelids, and OUCH!, it hurts. I stopped using this shortly after I got it (I bought it as a backup) because it was just too painful, especially in the morning when I am not fully awake (but it does help wake me up a bit with the pain).

You don't get good enough curl that holds with this curler. I've tried it with mascara before application and with mascara after applicaton with the same disappointing result. The plastic "curler" part is also annoyingly hard to clean off, too. It's only a buck, so you get what you pay for. I'm going to find a more effective curler, because this isn't it.

My friend got me this eyelash curler for my birthday nd overall i really do like it. The only complaint I have about it is that it is kind of big and doesnt really have a way to stay clamped closed. It does a really good job of curling my eyelashes and I don't have that feeling as they are getting "eaten" by my eyelash curler either.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Warm Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
Junk! Total junk. I threw it away because of the pain it inflicted to my eyes and emotional distress I had afterward. =[
ha! Seriously though! OUCH! It's completely ineffective at curling your lashes because it doesn't budge when you move the handles to curl them. It's so tight and cheaply made that it just tears them out. It was free thanks to a promo code I had but even for free, I would never want this again. I use the one that New York Color sells for $3 and it works a million times better than this.

i dislike this eyelash curler, it did NOTHING for my eyelashes, it was even off balance and crimped one side better than the other.. this is definately a flop for elf. if you're reading this elf.. redesign it :)

I wish there was a "maybe" option. I own this, the original Mechanical curler, and the Shu curler. Shu will always be my favorite for sure, but I wanted to see if there were any cheaper alternatives. Comparing all three curlers, I saw that they shared the same diameter and degree of curve at the curling part. The Studio and Shu look very, very similar...except the Studio curler is taller at the top lip. I like that this doesn't pinch my lids like the Mechanical one sometimes does. However, I don't think it curls my lashes as well. I will update once I use this more.
EDIT: Bumped this up to a 5. I'm glad I didn't listen to the other reviews, because I really, really like it. I actually like this better than the regular Mechanical one. It's slightly sub-par compared to my Shu, but I think it works well enough to replace my Shu when I'm on a very tight budget. So yes, I definitely would repurchase.

This eyelash curler is SCARY! I thought it was going to pull out of ALL of my eyelashes. This one is so cheap and wobbly. It only curls a portion of your eyelashes. So, it makes sense why they sell a mini version for the ends and corners of your eye lashes.
I have been using a Cover Girl eyelash curler for over 30 years. For two bucks more, I will continue to purchase the product I have been using for years. I will not purchase this product again...
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
i got the mini eyelash curler. it's very tiny, only about 1.5 cm long. it's good for curling lashes in the corners of the eyes or curl lashes in sections. you can't miss a lashes with this curler!
