An alternative to the normal eyelash curler

January 26, 2012

Not to sound annoying, but I’ve been getting a lot more compliments on my lashes lately. If you’ve been following my blog, by now you know I’m a little mascara obsessed and switch them up pretty often. A little known fact: I’m such a lash fiend, I’ll often use TWO different mascaras at once. It’s a problem. An addiction, if you will.

But this time, I don’t think it’s my mascara. I’m starting to think the common denominator is a new eyelash curler I’ve been using. Way back when, I wrote a whole post on my fear of eyelash curlers, so some of you may be wondering what’s up with my change of heart. But here’s the thing — the one I use isn’t your normal clamp-it-down-on-your-lashes-and-hope-they’re-still-there kind. It’s more of an eyelash wand/comb…and get this: it’s HEATED.

I found Japonesque’s Pink Heated Mini Lash Curler ($16) on Bloom.com when I had one of those shopping binges (which also makes bloom.com so wonderful, because it rewards you pretty handsomely based on how much you spend..but that was a wholeeee other post).

But back to this curler’s awesomeness — I love that you just turn on a switch to heat it up (it doesn’t get like scorching hot, of course…just warm enough) and you can just hold it up against your lashes to get a deep curl that stays. It’s battery operated, and you can either turn the switch off yourself or it automatically switches off when you put the cap back on. I personally like it better than traditional curlers because it doesn’t pinch or break your lashes either. I can’t even count the times people have asked me if I’m wearing fake lashes since I started using this.

To curl lashes just hold the wand up against your lashes.

My lashes already have a bit of a natural curl to them, so I’m curious to see how it works for people with straight lashes. One thing I also wonder about is if it works on people with shorter lashes as well. Hmm.

If you want to try it, I definitely suggest going through Bloom.com. You accumulate points with purchases and they give some pretty generous customized gifts with your orders (based on your beauty profile that you create when you join!). Oh, and PS…it also comes in black ;).

    It’s totally safe though — the heat isn’t like crazy intense, and the part of your lash that’s really getting to the heat is actually more the ones that fall in the little crevices!
