I've been using the e.l.f. Essential Mechanical Eyelash Curler for quite some time now, and although I was ready to review it upon first trying it, I waited several months because I wanted to see if my experience changed as I got used to the product. I say that because I don't have much experience with eye lash curlers, I am somewhat a beginner, and in fact this has been the 2nd eye lash curler I have ever used, the 1st was a Revlon curler (I believe) it was over 10 years ago!
The e.l.f. Essential Mechanical Eyelash Curler feels like very sturdy material, and what I like about it is that the little pad has been able to last and look perfectly the same even after using it for several months (without having to replace it). My lashes or eyelid skin never once got pinched or tugged on, I believe it is because the top lid is not sharp, it's dull which is perfect for easy application. I also love the grip handle that it comes with, my fingers never once slipped or budged as I was curling my lashes.
As awesome as those PROS above were...I have to tell you I will not be repurchasing this curler simply because it did nothing to my lashes, it just didn't curl any of my lashes, which was very disappointing. Granted I do love e.l.f Cosmetics and this curler was only $1.00 but there's no point in using a curler that doesn't curl.
If any of you have any recommendations on drugstore (or even high end) eyelash curlers I would love to know! Have any of you ever used the e.l.f. Essential Mechanical Eyelash Curler? What do you think about it? To check out this curler through the e.l.f. site, please click here.
