Best $1 Eyelash Curler Ever Sold!




Good lord it's been a month since I've updated my blog! Sorry glamouristas, the holidays had me booked!


About a month ago I was at Target and browsed their little holiday E.L.F. section and came across this $1 eyelash curler. I love a cheap lash curler! It's one of the simplest things you can do (or not do) that can make or break your "look".


Now, if you're subbed to me on YouTube, chances are you've probably heard me rant once or twice about the Mally Eyelash Curler that I purchased from QVC about 4 years ago. Ugh, worst purchase ever. Pulled out all my lashes! That P.O.S. was $25 or so, plus tax and shipping... consider yourself forewarned! People always love that video, "5 Products I Regret Purchasing", not sure why, but I've been told it's funny. I'm glad you all seem to find humor in my pain! ;) LOL


I've also puchased the $20 Shu Uemura curlers... eh. So NOT impressed. Trust me when I say they can't do anything that a $2 Wal-Mart lash curler can do just as good, if not better! So, back to my purchase... there was only one curler left, so I threw it in my cart and proceeded to check out. Afterall, what did I have to lose, other than a dollar?


Let me tell you girlies... this is by far one of the BEST eyelash curlers I've ever purchased! It's considered "mechanical" because it has a swirled metal spring that makes the handles bounce back (um, ok genius'. lol). It also comes equipped with a replacement pad, as all curlers do. The pad itself is soft and helps create the softest, natural curl. Out of the 5 eyelash curlers I have in my make-up room, I find myself reaching for this curler every morning. I foresee myself being completely devestated when I start cutting into that replacement pad! :(


Overall, this was a great purchase and if you're able to find this curler at your local Target or online, definitely throw it in your cart too (maybe 4 or 5 if you can!) You won't be disappointed... and if you are, heck, I'll buy them from you! ;)

I have 2 of these, and I agree, it's a really good find! LOL, I remember that video all too well, I still cringe at the thought of all your poor lil' lashes being ripped out! =\

I've tried a few ELF products and for the most part really liked them. I'll have to try the lash curler next time I run cross it.

Thanks Fexi. :-)

I just purchased the exact same curler this afternoon! I just did a purple smokey look and I was so excited to use it along with my Stila mascara I just purchased and totally forgot to use it... Needless to say, the mascara i bought was old and just made my lashes look limp... BOOO anyway im excited to try this tomorow
