I like this eyelash curler. This was my first experiment with eyelash curlers. I decided to buy one on a whim because I have crazy corner eyelashes which grow in about six different directions. This was my attempt to get them all to curl up and not go into the corner of my eye. This eyelash curler was easy enough to use. I did not hurt myself and I liked the effect that the curler produced. The only thing I noticed was that if you do not immediately apply mascara, the lashes tend to uncurl a little bit.

pros: it came with 3...3! replacement pads.
cons: took forever to curl my lashes. 5+ times to make a curl. =(

This is the best curler I have ever used. It holds my eyelashes curl and I love it.

My Revlon eyelash curler gave it up after about 10yrs of use so I repurchased a Revlon. It broke within 2 months. Strange. I've heard all the hype about expensive eyelash curlers from She Umeura and Chanel...but really, I just couldn't spend 20 dollars on this. Tweezerman has a good reputation and it was 12 dollars, twice as much as the Revlon but comes with 4 silicone pads. Anyways, all that said, this works wonderfully for me. I have good lashes and this makes them look amazing. It is difficult, I agree, to figure out how to get them through such a small opening, but once that is figured out, it works really well. REALLY well :))

I thought I would like this because Tweezerman is generally excellent, and I've been using a Revlon eyelash curler (not exactly high-end). It doesn't open as much as Revlon, so you have less control. I forcibly blinked a few times and ruined my eye makeup. The curler also pinches more than Revlon, so it's harder to curl the lashes close to the base. It does seem to be a more powerful curler, but because you can't get close to the base it leaves you with an angled, unnatural curl.

Didn't curl my lashes at all. Came apart easily. Disappointed.

I love these. Soooo much better than cheap makes hence the £14 price tag but these last forever, give me a fantastic long lasting curl and are well worth the price.

I had been wasting my money on cheaper eyelash curlers, and was finding it difficult to find replacement pads for them. So, when I had a 25% discount at CVS I broke down and bought this one. I'm so glad I did! It curls SO much better, and the curl lasts a long time. Plus, it comes with replacement pads, and I would imagine pads will be easy to find when I run out. I haven't been this happy with a new beauty purchase in a long time.

Tried this after I lost my shu... Ummmm. Why did I do that? Go spend 8 more dollars on a shu curler, or 4 more dollars on tarte... tweezermans got it down when it comes to tweezers, but when it comes to eyelash curlers? It's a bust. Womp Womp

* this is a review for the "Professional Classic" curler specifically, as there are other similar curlers in the brand so I wanted to specify.
Product's Claims - True or False?
1) Create beautifully enduring curl: True
2) Forms intense curl without ever creasing lashes: False
The curler came packaged in a standard cardboard and plastic wrapping with three extra silicone pads. There was really nothing note-worthy about the packaging to comment on.
The Professional Classic curler is made of a smooth, skinny metal with a purple squishy silicone pad. the silicone pad is firm as well so I feel like it needs a bit more pressure than a softer pad would need. The openings for your fingers are on the small side so those with larger fingers might not be able to use this comfortably - it's already a bit of a tight squeeze for my thumb and my fingers are not really that large. The curling area is fairly wide and rounded, and the metal strips connecting the bottom edge of the curler head to the finger handle creates a triangle that would sit on your cheek while using.
Like mentioned already lash curlers are very hit or miss due to the varying shapes of our eyes, our curling preference, and our experience with curlers. Every curler I've tried has pinched my lids but I'd usually get good results. I have never been a regular to lash curling, but decided to give this one a try because I've seen refills sold separately at drug stores. This curler definitely had a learning curve for me. When I first used it I pinched myself a lot and would get fairly dented curls, as well as too curled lashes that just looked absolutely ridiculous. But with a week or so of practice I've gotten the technique down and quite like the results I get and I don't pinch myself unless bringing it too close to my roots. The curl will also last whether mascara has been applied or not until the lashes are rinsed or makeup is removed. I do have lashes with a slight curl naturally though, so this could play into my results. My technique for using the curler is as follows: place the curler to sit at the center of my lid/lashes and when closing the curler I aim the tip more into the crease of my lid while tipping my head back a bit, I then squeeze once or twice at the base before moving it up my lashes a bit to squeeze once or twice again. If I want to I'll repeat this process.
Bang for Your Buck:
I got this curler on sale for about $9.50CAD at London Drugs, regular price closer to $12.00CAD. With the availability of replacement pads without having to repurchase the entire curler again and having three extra pads in there already I feel like it's a good price.
With a bit of patience and practice I was able to turn a so-so impression into a positive one. it's probably not the BEST curler, but it's easy to purchase in my area compared to buying a curler at department stores and it isn't overly pricey for what's provided. I sometimes get a curl I'm not in love with but perhaps with even more use it will become second nature and I'll rarely get a dud result. I would recommend although it's not something I think is worth rushing into stores to try out.
