my friend has an eyelash curler from shu umemura which retails around [$$$]. i tried that, and was not impressed. when this item was on sale at my local target i decided it was time for a new one. this was one of my best purchases.
the top curler has a wide metal piece which lets your eyelid rest comfortably while your lashes curl. it doesn't tug at your eye at all. everyone should have one!
THIS CURLER REALLY WORKS. I WAS AMAZED HOW LONG IT CURLED MY EYELASHES AND WITH MY NICE MASCARA ALTOGETHER! IF YOU WANT LASHES THAT WILL EXTEND AND REALLY CURL. THIS IS THE ONE. I THOUGHT ABOUT BUYING MAC EYE LASH CURLER FOR $11.00 AND INSTEAD I TRIED THIS ONE.. AND IT WORKED!!!! I SAVED SOME MONEY!!! THANK GOD I DID!!!!:)
This product didn't work at all. Every time I try to use it, the tweezers don't hold on to the hairs and the hairs slip right through without plucking the hair. It doesn't get them on the first try like the description says, in fact it doesn't get them at ALL. Do not waste your money on this.
