i was never one to use a curler until i tried this one out. i got it with the full size mascara plus lash primer. i have to say i really love the whole trio...the mascara is simply amazing and the curler just helps amplify the effect nicely
My favorite eyelash curler. Doesn't pinch and easy to use. It reminds me of my old Kevin Aucoin curler that I miss so dearly. I use this everyday and I've had it for over a year now.
I wanted to really love this eyelash curler. I always used a revlon curler and I also had an ELF one as well. This was my first "high end" curler and I had high expectations for it. Quite honestly, I was disappointed. I didnt like the curl it gave. It seemed to crimp my lashes rather than give them a soft, natural curl. I have tried not pressing hard but it just doesn't work for me. This was a fail. Like the mascara though.
Works For Me
I got this originally because it came with a mini LCL, which is one of my favorite mascaras. I had a Revlon curler already, but it wasn't really doing much for me, because the little pad inside the curler kept coming out and I'd get pinched pretty often. So I figured I might as well try this. I got this a couple of years ago and I see no need to ever use another curler. I like how I don't have to stick my fingers into anything and I can just grip it. This curler fits me comfortably and the only times I've pinched myself have been due to user error (I don't always pay attention-- bad idea when you're using stuff so close to your eye...). The only thing I don't like is how this will stop itself before you can close it completely. I would guess that this is to keep you from over-curling and crimping up your lashes, but sometimes I feel like I can't get as dramatic of a curl as I might like. You can close this all the way with a bit more pressure, but I would prefer if it was just more smooth.
Gets all my lashes
Gives a more natural looking curl
Stops itself before closing completely-- requires more pressure
