I don't think this is a bad curler if you know how to use it. If I don't put much pressure on the curler, then my eyelashes are PERFECT. If I do put too much pressure on it, though, then my eyelashes do that 90 degree thing.
Another thing I like about this curler: it actually fits my eyes. I think I have pretty big eyes, and this curler fits. I dig that.
Overall, I'm content with this eyelash curler. I'm sure that there are much better ones out there, but I'm fine with this one.

A little painful. I love how after using this curler, my eyelashes bend in all sorts of directions. It gives each lash its own super fun personality. I recommend this curler to masochists and free spirits.

This is a VERY good eyelash curler. Its nice and wide so I can catch all of my lashes in it. I have LARGE eyes that are NOT deep set. If you have big eyes I highly recommend this curler. I absolutely love the padded squeeze handle. So comfy on my fingers. Such a huge difference from traditional curlers. I barely have to use pressure with this. Totally comfortable and no pinching. It curls quickly. Like two minutes and I'm done with both eyes. I did have to change my technique which is a good thing!! If you clamp down like a mad woman you will end up with an L shape...Use gentle pressure for a couple seconds then move it up a little so that you get a smooth curl. Seriously...its not hard to do. This comes with two replacement pads in the package. I wish it had maybe a little paper pocket to keep the extra pads in. It is super inexpensive. I had just visited a Sephora store to buy a new curler and got so mad when I saw how much they were charging that I walked out in a huff. I went to Longs and found this wonderful curler there!!
I've been using one made by Maybelline for many years. I always thought that I had hard to curl lashes..but NO. It was the curler that sucked. It literally would take me ten minutes just to curl them. That's insane! The metal handle really hurt my fingers and I would have to clamp down as hard as I possible could. Maybelline recently changed the pad to a black rounded one. I could not get that sucker to stay in the curler. It never did catch all my lashes at once because it is not very wide.
Something else I've learned...I know that using waterproof mascara is the only way to go if you want the curl to stay. Regular formulas will make the curl instantly straighten out no matter what curler you use.

I like this eyelash curler! It reminds me a lot of my elf one which was broken .. after a couple months.. I find this more comfortable than the ELF curler though. The handles? took me some time to get used to. But I like how my lashes look. I don't have to press too hard on it.. my lashes look curled and natural. It's worth my 5 bucks!

Run far way!!!
I believe this to be a very primitive curler. It may be the pads that make it so bad because they are bulky and imprecise. I don't need my eyelashes to bend suddenly at 90 degrees, thanks.
Stick with Revlon or Shu.

Usually I use Revlon's eyelash curler, but I decided to go for a change and lean towards Essence of Beauty because in the past, I have bought a few of their make up brushes and have not been let down... until now.
Unfortunately I can not say that this product met my expectations. It did not give me curled lashes evenly, and took me more than two squeezes to see an eyelash lift. I have not had a problem with pinching, but I would not want to squeeze the applicator more than three times for an eyelash lift.
The price I bought this for was $6.99 at CVS. It comes with two replacement pads in the same packaging. The packaging is very secure, so you will know that no one has been squeezing or bending. I also spotted separate packaging for replacement pads (I believe it was 3 count, but I'm not 100% sure...), which is a great idea that I wish Revlon considered. However, due to the poor performance this product has given me, I believe that for the price of $3.49 on my Revlon eyelash curler (with 1 replacement pad), I'll choose Revlon's curler over EoB's.
EDIT 09/22/07 - The price for this was actually $4.99. I just saw the receipt for it, therefore my Price rating factor has gone from a 3 to a 2.

In the case of Essence of Beauty Eyelash Curler, you get what you pay for and I paid $6 to torture myself. The eyelash curler HURT. It was the most painful curler I've ever used. I am sticking to Shu and Tarte, which doesn't pinch at all, and will definitely not repurchase this eyelash curler again. And not only did it pinch/hurt, it didn't curl very well either so it wasn't worth the pain.

I like this curler. It was only $6 maybe, and came with two curler refills. My lashes were curly and pretty, I didn't have to squeeze very hard, and it was gentle on my lashes.
