Heated Eyelash Curlers: Are they a DO or a DON’T?
I just recently purchased a heated eyelash curler as I’ve always wanted to see how these compare to regular eyelash curlers. I also thought it would be a great addition to my make-up kit to use on those with lashes that just don’t seem to want to curl.
I ended up buying an eyelash curler by Ardell which is a company famously known for their fake eye lashes. You can purchase these products from any supermarket or drugstore.
It is battery operated with two AAA batteries and heats up within minutes. It is designed with a temperature sensitive silicone strip that turns clear once it is heated long enough and ready for usuage. Once I started to clamp the curler onto my lashes, I felt the heat but not to the point that I could get burnt. They aren’t meant to get too hot and are totally safe to use. I found that my lashes definitely got an amazing lift from the heated eyelash curler versus a regular eyelash curler BUT it was more a straight up kind of effect instead of a more natural curl which can be more easily achieved when using a regular eyelash curler. This could also be due to the fact that I have shorter lashes to begin with so there is not much to clamp onto to create a natural curling effect.
My verdict: Heated eyelash curlers are a DO
These are especially great for people that have lashes that grow straight out and refuse to curl. I think it’s definitely something everyone should try at least once. I plan on using this and retiring my current eyelash curlers. (I own both the Shu Uemura and MAC ones).
Best of all, they are super affordable. For less than $10, it’s a great investment. These are even cheaper than regular eyelash curlers (Shu Uemura is known for offering the best eyelash curler and theirs retails for $19). I just looked at Ebay and found there are hundreds of people selling heated eyelash curlers as low as $2.69 with FREE shipping. You can’t beat that!
