Finally given in and bought a lash curler, never curled my lashes ever before, so decided to get brave and jump in. For me as a beginner, i find this works really well, my lashes are long to start with, so on curling them, they were like BOOM! Next stop, get brave and learn how to do false lashes! Definately recommend these for a beginner, as i have nothing else right now to compare them too. Only gripe i have, is the price, bit ridiculous i think, for what they are and what they do. But oh well.

This a great curler. It's made well and it curls my lashes quickly. I would repurchase it.

To begin with,I really had no clue that there could be such a "dramatic difference" between curlers.
I mean I never thought two simple pieces of metal with a pad, could be so different?!
I thought how could they be any different from each other...right? Wrong!
No matter what drugstore brand(Sally/Maybelline/Revlon/ELF etc's) I bought it took a long time to work and I would almost pray each use that none of my fine lashes would get pulled out(by the hard pads) or even stuck into the mushy cheaper silicone pads(that would split almost immediately like ELF's new pads!) It really was a bit scary for me every day! Lol!
But then came along MAC and with this baby......it literally only takes "2-3 quick pumps"...... and they are WAY the heck UP THERE! Really!
I have found that if you pump too hard or more than 3 times, that they will end up too curled and L shaped.
So, with just 2-3 quick light pumps and I'm done.
I know if you are reading this you are a bit unsure to invest more than a $10..00 bill on a curler. But, I promise that if you have never bought a higher ended better quality curler like this or the Shu......than you are truly missing out big time!
It doesn't pinch easily like the cheaper ones.(Well,if you know how to place a curler right)Plus it grabs a hold of even my tiniest lashes.
If you think about it the better drugstore curlers cost around five-eight bucks or and I still had to replace them constantly.
Many years ago, the first one I fell in love with the dollar ELF one. I guess because I never used one before, it was like a life changing experience. ;) Because my German/Irish heritage lashes are almost straight, very thin, very blonde and are basically invisible without mascara and black liner. I almost hated to do my mascara because it took so much time to get them up and curled with any mascara brand...I have a hubby, 2 rocking lil' boys, 2 dogs and a cat.... so that just wasn't cool. So this MAC curler amazed me and does the curl fast and wonderfully.
Again,I never knew there could be difference between curlers and I wasted too many dollar bills on crap.
Now the MAC curler only comes with 1 refill pad(do not lose it!)
The bad thing is that they do not sell any refills for it just yet!
But, I was told to just flip the worn out side over...and by golly, it works great too! Yay!
I've had it for a while now and I am still on the first side. There isn't even a demarcation on the pad yet ;)
So, I am gathering that with the flipping over and the extra pad they include...I should easily have at least another year or 2 left....give or take.
Oh and btw, I have read, many times, that he the Shiseido refill pads actually do fit in this too!
The only thing I wish is that this and the Shu curlers would have a bigger opening for the lashes to get into.
I have to be extremely careful, as my lashes are fine and blonde, and make sure that they are all in there each time. So yeah, I really dislike that factor. But, maybe that factor is what makes these 2 curlers so different and awesome.
I really do love it soooo much!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Its cheaper than the Shu and I am confident that this baby will amaze you. (UPDATE 10/1/12: The price has now increased from $16.00 to freaking $20.00 now!!!!! W the heck.... MAC!? So, heads up, the price is not that different anymore!) ;(
I just wish I would have listened to all the hype on these curlers years ago......it definitely would have saved me so much money, time, aggravation and even lashes!
But who knew? Well, I do..... now! ;) peace

So after having the Shu for a while and not being able to buy another one (they don't sell them anymore) and trying out the Tarte eyelash curler that broke on me within a month of using I wanted a good eyelash curler. I bought the MAC eyelash curler which is really good. It curls my lashes fast, I don't have to press and press on my lashes like the Maybelline I had. It curls easily without pressing too hard and without the need of a blow dryer. The mouth of the curler does take some getting used to, its small but now I'm used to it. I'm surprized this isn't that popular like the sheseido, its actually a really good curler!

This eyelash curlers beats all the other eyelash curlers I've tried by a landslide.
I have short, thick, straight eyelashes that make mascaras useless unless I use an eyelash curler--this one does the trick perfectly.
I can easily curl my lashes without pulling any of them out. All I do is position it at the roots of my eyelashes, hold it there for 5-7 seconds, and voila! Curled eyelashes!
And I don't even need to heat up this curler under a hair blow drier or anything; my curl stays put pretty much all day with a waterproof mascara (I use the Maybelline Falsies Waterproof Mascara).
The only reason why this isn't my HG and I'm not giving it a full 5 lipstick rating is because the shape is just plain wrong for my eyes. It's way too curved for me to be able to curl all my lashes at once with it. And, because of the curved shape, I can't even curl my inner and outer eyelashes.
I should also mention that I have heavy, almost-creaseless Asian eyelids, so maybe that explains all that weird eye shape/curved curler shit.
But other than that, I really like this eyelash curler! It's the only one that really works for me!
Would I repurchase? Yeah!

to me eyelash curlers either do the job or they don't.
this one doesn't. it only reaches around 60% of my lashes and even those don't really curl.
I'm not going to give it a bad review because my lashes are pretty droopy (straight and downwards) and because I have really soft hair the curl just goes back to normal within seconds.
if you are like me and need something more heavy duty then this is not it. kindda disappointing for the price, I had a drug store pair worth $2 that did a better job!

Great lash curler. I had always thought I wouldn't bother wasting money on a more expensive lash curler, I had been using drug store ones for years. My SO got this for me last year as a Christmas gift and I am so glad he did! There is a noticeable difference between this curler and drugstore curlers. This curler gets right up to the lash line without pinching my eyelid. I have had this curler for over a year and still have not had to use the replacement pad. I clean it once and a while with a coupon and some makeup remover, just to take off the shadow that has built up. Great buy!

LOVE IT!!! BEST CURLER

I really like this. I bought it to replace my Shu Uemura one since they no longer sell them in the US. It has the same shape and doesn't pinch my eyelids. It takes a few times to get a good curl but it's not as expensive as my shu uemura and works great.

No complaints. Curls my lashes great. Their tips reach up to my brows after I've used this. Doesn't work exactly the same on everyone, but it does the trick - it just takes longer to act on straight, horse-like lashes.To be honest, I can't really find where an eyelash curler could go wrong. It's a tool that's supposed to turn your lashes up, and it does that. So yeah. Pretty and sleek and convenient, nice curve to catch the entire span of lashes at once. Its pad feels quite protective also, I don't think you could risk pinching or damaging your lashes with this, unless you try. Very handy to keep around and use either on yourself or on other people whose makeup you might be doing that day. Nice little trinket overall. Mhm.

I have always used cheapy eyelash curlers since I thought they were all the same. Since my switch from the revlon curler to my MAC full lash curler, i have fell in love with my lashes! The curl or crimp (as I like the long crimpy look) really lasts me all day with just two curls per lash! doesn't even pinch my lashes! The curler does come with a spare pad, but MAC doesn't sell individual packs. =( I will def. repurchase!

MAC cosmetics lash curler damaged my eyelashes, which parties can I speak to about MAC product safety?
I bought a deficit MAC lash curler in MAC London shop. my middle section (around 7mm)of my eyelashes was trimmed by the MAC COSMETIC curler seriously.
It is just small amount, so I did not keep the reciept. The curler was tested in two MAC stores and their shop managers proved it is deficit. (it damaged its user eyelashes!!!)
MAC HONG KONG said they can do nothing with it even though their curler has tested it is deficit in two of their stores without reciept presented.
From the tests in their stores, we proved the middle section of the curler is like a cutter, and will trim off its user eyelashes.
MAC HK asked me what can they help me, I asked for:
1)12 pairs fade lashes and
2)Total refund or exchange the product.
I think i am very generous with this issue, since I know I did not keep the reciept.
MAC HONG KONG said they can offer me 2 pair of lashes and the eyelash kit only, and this is their appreciation on my support, which is not at all a compensation or refund.
MAC HONG KONG even give me a deadline to settle this case. (no refund or exchange of their deficit product).
For instance, If a brand Y 's television cause an explosion, and their customer cannot present the reciept, brandy is still responsible for their customer's damage.
The fact is that I suffered for 6 monthes without the whole middle section of my eyelashes, because I choose to buy mac cosmetic 's product.
MAC HONG KONG refuse to give me the contact person from MAC headquater and stopped reply my last five e-mails when I asked them if they report this case to their headquater.
If anyone interested to see the photo of my lashes damaged by their curler, I am more than happy to share it.
MAC Cosmetic HK understands it is their product deficit, but refuse to take responsibility. what kind of company is this? Can you trust this company and put their product on your face?

I got this curler to replace my Shu curler(which I loved). This curler is just as amazing, I curl my lashes for 10 secs and get the look I want easily. I hate holding my lashes inside a curler that needs too much time to curl. I would repurchase it for sure.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
I would give it 4.5, not because I love mac products either. It is a curl that can reach almost every lash ( except a few end lashes). I have searched high and low and I am impressed... its hard to pinch yourself with this one (though I have pinched myself once with this-I wasn't careful). Shu and shiseido have been notorious to pinch curls and lose a few hairs. Koji #73 the curl I bought came deformed so it curls great for middle of the lash but not much can be done for end lashes. Yes you pay for more for the mac curler but it never comes as deformed and you can toss it in a few years and buy a new one when you use up the pads. Next I am trying Preo curl-up in the small and large version just to see how it compare. Both are more expensive (small one is 25$ and large is 50$) as the curlers are made out of steel (?).

I already owned Shu Uemura & Shiseido curlers, and I liked them a lot but they somehow pinched, and for some weird reason worked on one and eye and not the other (thankfully they worked on different eyes) - I didn't want to bother carrying around two curlers (I hardly curled my lashes anyway) so I swapped away the Shu and gave the Shi to my sister.
But there were times I needed to curl my lashes and I decided to try a different one. I went to MAC and saw this and it had Japan written on it so I thought, hmmm, maybe I should check this out (that it had Japan meant to me it may work well for me since I am Asian - although my experience with Shu & Shi didn't actually prove that LOL)
So anyway. It is the same price as the Shu, and like Shu, comes with one replacement pad and has to be tossed when the new pad becomes ineffective. They don't sell replacement pads - but a tip here that the MAC SA told me is to use both sides of the pad before you change it, and use both sides of the new pad before you buy a new curler and this way he said it won't be 6 years before you have to buy a new one - otherwise 3 years is when they rec that you toss it. I wonder if it works on all curlers - worth a try I guess. In any case I thought that was good advice)
I was very impressed I didn't have to be supercareful using it, the way I had to be with Shu and Shi because they could pinch. This baby doesn't! And it curls really nicely, too. And the best part is: I can use it on both eyes! I now curl my lashes every single day, (especially now that my lashes are longer courtesy of Careprost - but that's a different story) and I never lose a lash.
I do see myself using this for a long time, HTH some!

This a good, easy to use, non crimping eyelash curler. It's well made and sturdy and reasonably priced. It comes in one of those impossible to open plastic cases with an extra pad. The pad is rounded enough so that it won't crimp your eyelashes strangely. It also does not have a spring near your eye like my last one did, but instead has a simple hinge design without any parts that snag, snap or pinch. My only complaint is that because of the thickness of the pad, if you place curler too close to the base of your lashes it can pull on the roots too hard. Maybe that's just because of my eye shape though.
Overall I think it's a great eyelash curler that is comfortable and easy to use and a good value for the price.

I finally replaced my Shu curler and am pretty happy with this one. The only difference I can tell between the two is the MAC has a more curler outer lip.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Brown
I love this eyelash curler! I've used everything and this is the one that gets my lashes curled and does not pinch! It takes a little to get that perfect natural curl but a lot less time than anything else. The only thing I don't like is that you have to get a brand new one everytime because they don't sell the little plastic replacements separetly, which I'm sure they want because they make more money but other than that I love this!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Dark Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I would give this a 4.5.
I love my MAC lash curler.
I own a Shu as well - but I still use my MAC everyday. I just haven't really felt the need to use the Shu since I think the MAC works great.
It did come with a replacement pad - Last I checked MAC did not sell them though :weird:
Anyway.. You can grab a pack from Sally's and keep on moving. I recommend this if you don't want to splurge on the Shu.

I HATED this one! My eyelashes are stick straight and I'd been wanting to try the shu uemura one but it's not available where I live so I decided to try this. It was very expensive for an eyelash curler and it's very hard, it pinches my eyelid (which has never happened before), and when I use it I have a lot of lash fall out! This is horrible because I don't have many eyelashes! I can not take it back, what a waste! I'm definitely buying the shu uemura next but I was actually very satisfied with my revlon one.
