I purchased this Eyelash Curler from my nearest Boots store for approx £6. It is also available to buy from Beautybay.com priced at £6.50 including shipping costs and Esentual website has it for sale at £6.90 plus £1.95 postage.
* Comes with 6 Spare Pads
* In Sleek Black with Red rubber handles for easy grip
* Rounded cushioned pads to produce a perfect curl
* No crimping of the Lash
* No damage to the Lash
When I saw this eyelash curler in Boots I was instantly attracted to the design and colouring scheme of the item. It has a nice red and black colour scheme with the red colour outlining the finger handles slots and the eye lash curler pads. It looked stylish and well made so I went ahead and purchased it.
It is easy to use and very easy to hold thanks that well designed finger holds which are a good size to allow my fingers to grip comfortably. It comes with 6 curling pads which are all in snazzy red colours! Each pad is good size and has decent width to provide cushioning while curling.
To use simply position them onto the bottom of your eyelids and ensure that the lashes are inserted between the red pad and upper curler and then just use the mechanism to curl the lashes. The curlers were easy to glide enabling control over the curling and no uncomfortable tugging or pulling of the lashes. Instead it literally glides and provides support and protection for the lashes by the padded protections. The pads that attach to curlers are easy to fix into place, and with time they do need replacing. However each pad lasts a good while so that's not something to worry about.
The results are great, after only a few seconds my eye lashes were perfectly curled and only needed one attempt per eye to produce the curls. This is brilliant as the last thing I need to do is have to keep attempting to curl the eye lashes as this will eventually damage and pull those precious strands out.
Overall I am very happy with these eyelash curlers and would recommend them, as they are affordable, easy to use and are very good quality so they wont break easily. They do the trick for me, so what more could I ask for! 5/5 rating
I'm pretty set in my ways when it comes to eyelash curlers. I have my favourite pair (Tweezerman) and I really don't think any others I have used compare to those and the results they give me. However I'm always up for trying something new out - especially when its make-up/beauty related so when I saw these on offer in Boots a few weeks ago I thought Id try them out - the design attracted me more than anything to be honest. And even now while I don't think they quite measure up to my holy grail of eyelash curlers I would definitely use these in the future if I was on more of a budget and I would certainly recommend them to others because in SOME ways these are much better.
Also comes with 6 replacement red pads.
The design of these in my opinion is the best of any eyelash curlers out there. They are very striking in red and black and are sure to catch your eye if your just wandering through Boots - they did with me anyway and they will make a great addition to any make-up bag. Style and shape wise though they are your average curlers except these have a spring which is supposed to make it more comfortable on your lashes and ensure that they actually curl rather than crimp or worse still pull out! Ouch! I like that in this case you get spare pads for the inside layers because although it is very easy to clean the pads when they get dirty throwing them away is much more hygienic and even still one pad does last ages so you wont need to change them all the time.
To use this you simply open up the curler and sort of clamp it down onto your top lashes as near to the roots as you possibly can and hold it there for about 10-30 seconds depending on how curly you want your lashes and then do the same on the other eye. A few tips though: NEVER do this while on the move because it will rip your lashes out and I assume that would be very painful & also never do this AFTER applying mascara always before as again the lashes can then stick to the curler and be ripped out. As long as you do right this can work wonders on your eyes.
I do think that in this case the spring does make the lashes look better and it is much easier to do - I can get a really wide eyed, awake look in seconds when I'm using these so they are great for days when you just cant be bothered to do your mascara - and lets face it EVERYONE has days like that! Although they do work really well in conjunction with mascara as they make your lashes appear longer and curlier and that look is defined even more when mascara is applied over the top so they are great for use alone or alongside other products.
I actually cant fault these and while I don't think they are as good as my chosen curlers I'm still going to keep using them and I highly recommend that others do as well as these can change your whole look in seconds. The price may seem a little high but they look so good and the results are so great that I would have to say that they are worth it. Great for a natural or a more made-up look and I couldn't live without them!

I got this the other day as my old eye lash curlers broke.
I have never seen this range of products before but I came across it in Boots and thought it looked pretty funky so thought I would try it out.
It cost £7.50 but it does come with about 6 spare rubber strips for the bottom of the curling part.
I really like the black and red design, most eye lash curlers I have found are silver, so I thought this is a great product to be a bit different.
The mechanism is the same as other eye lash curlers apart from the spring which is attached, I'm not sure what this is for, but it doesn't get in the way.
They work the same as any other curlers too, you press them on your eyelid, and close the bottom together to curl them, I have to say they were very good at this, they made my eye lashes super curled after about 10 seconds, and they curled the lashes all the way across my eye (I have had some that don't quite reach the corner lashes). I then applied mascara and they stayed in that position for a good few hours, they will always fall over time, no matter how long you curl them for.
I think the best part of this is the extra rubber strips, as they do tend to be the only part of eye lash curlers that tend to break with time, so I can see these lasting for ages. I do wonder if the black paint will come off over time though and make them look a bit worn, but I guess only time will tell.
I really like these for their funky design and the extra strips, so I think they are definitely worth £7.50, and they do as good if not better a job than other curlers I have had.
