I’ve been (trying) to use some eyelash curlers for a few years. I have a pair of the Classic Lash Curlers from Tweezerman and these cost me £9.50 a few years ago when I bought them from Boots. I think they may cost more money now as they are supposed to be a really good brand and one of the original lash curlers on the market.
I have pathetic eyelashes. I have very fair hair which is fine and lacks body – unfortunately my eyelashes seem to match the hair on my head and no matter what sort of eye enhancing stuff I try to use, my lashes are sparse, thin and very straight. When coated with mascara they still stick straight out, even when I’ve tried to use the special mascara’s that are supposed to miraculously curl the lashes. Nothing really seems to work for me and these lash curlers are much the same. Disappointing. I’ve just resigned my self to the fact that my lashes are just meant to look sparse and very straight.
I’ve used these lash curlers loads of times and read different advice about how it’s best to use them before applying mascara, and then read conflicting advice again about how it’s far better to use them once the mascara has been applied and left to dry. No matter which way I try to use them, they don’t really work for me personally.
My lash curlers look similar to a pair of scissors. They are made of stainless steel, they have a long handle which makes it easier to apply them to the eye area and grip hold of the lashes and they have small thin pads on the ends which is where my lashes rest as I grip hold of them with the handles and try to apply pressure to make them curl.
Using these lash curlers is the easy part. I do exactly as the instructions state and apply pressure, firmly gripping the lashes down for about twenty to thirty seconds and then release. Unfortunately, no matter how I try or which way I grip the lashes, they don’t ever look curled to me, the simply look bent. Bent lashes probably look even worse than ramrod straight lashes so I’ve now totally given up with lash curlers and accepted the fact that it’s just not meant to be.
These lash curlers did come highly recommended and I’d read up on them before I went out to buy them as they don’t come cheap. They also came with spare little pads as obviously these need to be changed at some point and don’t last forever and they are supposed to be a vital part of the appliance.
Unfortunately, I can’t recommend Tweezerman Classic Eyelash Curlers as for me personally, I cannot get them to work. It’s not like I’ve just been trying them out for the past couple of weeks or even months, I’ve genuinely been trying for a few years so I think I can safely say they don’t work.
==Price and Availability==
I've been curling my eyelashes since I was about 16, I have quite sensitive eyes and although I do wear mascara I tend to only do so at night preferring to just curl my eyelashes during the day. At first I just had some basic eye lash curlers which I would replace every so often. A couple of years ago I saw a these Tweezerman Classic Eyelash Curlers but they were just over £15 which for me was too much to pay. I found the same pair on Amazon for just over £11 so a bit cheaper and they now sell for £10 which isn't too bad and it comparable for me to the cost of a decent mascara which I would be using if I didn't curl my eyelashes anyway and I hope that this would last much longer.
==Using the Tweezerman Classic Eyelash Curlers==
These Tweezerman Eyelash Curlers are pretty similar to more other sets but they're pretty hard to describe so it's best to just have a look at the picture to see what they are like. The curlers came in a small plastic pouch and are silver metal apart from the little eyelash cushion part which is purple. In the pouch are also three spare cushions which is really handy, I've bought quite a few different pairs of eyelash curlers in the past and they haven't had spares and this has been the reason I have had to replace them so soon. The curlers are very easy to use, you put your thumb and a finger through the holes and open the curlers up; your eyelashes then go into the opening between the two pieces of metal, sitting on the purple cushion. You then squeeze the curlers shut and hold for a few seconds, I usually just count to ten and then repeat on the other eye. You need to ensure that you don't put your eyelashes too far into the opening as this can result in you trapping the edge of your eyelid which is obviously very painful! It may sound a little complicated if you've never used eye lash curlers before but once you've used them you will soon get used to it.
I found the Tweezerman Eyelash Curlers to be very easy to use and very gentle; the cushioned part was very soft but at the same time provided a good firmness to enable the lashes to curl effectively. After used these curlers my eyes are left looking wider and my lashes lovely and curled. The curl lasted really well too, other curlers I have used have needed re- doing on a regular basis but most of the time after curling in the morning I find that my lashes are fine for the rest of the day. The cushion, as with all other eyelash curlers, does develop a ridge in it where the top piece of metal is pressed in; I found that the cushion on these curlers though lasted a lot longer than others I have had. As the curlers cam with spare cushions as well they really last a long time and two years on I'm still using mine although I am on the last replacement cushion. If I'm curling my eyelashes I usually don't apply mascara but if you do it's important to do this after you have curled them and not before as this will quickly damage the cushion and may also damage your eyelashes.
I really recommend Tweezerman Classic Eyelash Curlers. They are a little pricey and the initial outlay is high but this is soon recouped as they last a really long time, in my opinion probably about four times as long as the other curlers I've bought. These curlers give effective curls which while it make eyes look wider still looks natural. They are also very comfortable and easy to use and for these reasons I would definitely recommend these and will be buying again in future.
I have long eyelashes but they are annoyingly extremely straight, with not a hint of a curl to be seen. Over the years I have tried a great many different types of eyelash curlers, most of which have proven to be a waste of money. One or two pairs have been difficult to use and one pair I can remember vividly, actually managed to break off a fair few of my lashes he first time I attempted to use them.
I have invested therefore, in a pair of (rather expensive, I admit) Tweezerman Classic Lash Curlers. I bought these online, directly from the manufacturer and paid £14. Yes, I really did pay that much!
These are not heated eyelash curlers, you understand, just plain old cold stainless steel ones, however, they did come highly recommended by a couple of friends and I had read some very good reviews on them before I decided to go ahead with my purchase.
They came in a little transparent plastic pouch along with three spare pairs of 'cushions', in vivid purple, to use as replacements for when the original one wears out. I have been using my Tweezerman Classic Lash Curlers now for approximately three weeks, and as I use them daily, I can happily report that I am very pleased indeed wth my purchase.
They are very simple and easy to use. The tweezers have a good sized handle which enables me to get a good grip, which is essential when using a pair of eyelash curlers (just in case you poke yourself in the eye!). They are made of high quality stainless steel and feel very sturdy and as thought hey wil last me a good length of time.
I simply place them around my eyelashes (starting with the right eye first, though don't ask me why), and hold down firmly but gently for about ten to thirty seconds. Gently release your grip and remove the curlers from the lashes and hey presto, you have perfectly curled lashes.
What I love about these curlers is the fact that they give my lashes a natural looking curl. With some curlers I have used in the past I have been left with a rather false looking 'dent' on my lashes, rather than a natural curl. With the Tweezerman Classic Lash Curlers the curl looks like I was born with curly lashes. I think this is down to the quality of the silicone cushion as it is very sift and bouncy and feels well made.
If I want a curl to last me all day and through to the night then I have found a good little trick. I heat the curlers up for about twenty seconds before hand with my hand held hairdryer to make them good and hot and then proceed to curl my lashes as normal. The result is a pair of lashes which remain curly all day long and into the night - perfect!
Would I recommend the Tweezerman Classic Lash Curlers? You bet I would! Although initially expensive I am absolutely delighted with them. They are by far the best eyelash curlers I have ever used. They give me a wide-awake look and really open up my eyes. I use them before I apply mascara for best results but I know friends who say they use them after having applied make up - the choice is yours.
Amazing little curlers, which I am happy to recommend.

Curling my lashes is something that I do several times on a daily basis. Ive been doing it for years and it is one of the best ways to get really wide eyed, curly lashes without doing very much at all. When I first started using them I was only about 13 so I had a bog standard pair that Id bought from Bodycare and I never thought there would be any difference between those and the more expensive brands. After using these curlers I have to say there is a lot of difference as these are just SOOO much better.

For: Curling Lashes & Widening The Appearance Of Your Eyes In Seconds.
For those of you who have never used lash curlers it is ridiculously simple. You simply put your thumb and third finger into the grips.open the curler and makes sure your eyes are open and place over the lashes and close. Only do it for a few seconds as it doesnt need to be a really long process. I do have a few tips for using these though: ALWAYS use a mirror, never try and do this on a bus or in a car believe me it will pull your lashes out also dont blink when these are on your lashes & never apply this AFTER mascara as it will totally ruin it and make the curlers filthy dirty.
Always curl your lashes before putting on mascara as then you have a great base to work on and ading mascara only helps with the curling effect. Applying it after though makes the mascara go clumpy and it looks like spider legs. Even if your simply using these without applying any extra eye make-up these curlers even do a great job then. I took these on holiday a few years ago as it was so hot and I didnt want to wear mascara but using these actually made me look much more natural and it really does look as if you have perfectly defined eyes and super curly lashes.
These are great for use on their own if your looking for a more natural look than full mascara or great to use alongside other eye make-up to create more more length and volume than usual - great for a night out.
People might be wondering what the purple thing in the picture is and basically thats a plastic padding which inevitably gets dirty after a while being around all your other products. But it can easily be slipped in and out and can be simply wiped clea after every application if needs be. Highly recommended as these makes my eyes look better than any Ive used in the past and I have used quite a few! Super curly lashes which look great - use these curlers!

My Eyelashes are long, but straight. Having small eyes I find curling my lashes makes them look a bit wider, and more open. I have been curling my eyelashes since I was a teenager, and have had them permed in the past, but dont seem to be able to find the time for this now as I have two small children, therefore eyelash curlers are my savior (I do feel naked without having curly eyelashes!)
So I have used quite a few different types of curlers over the years, some expensive and some cheap. My current pair was wearing out from overuse so when I saw The Tweezerman Classic Eyelash curler on Lookfantastic.com priced at £14.00 I decided to give it a try. £14.00 might seem expensive for what it is, but I have paid over £20 for a pair in the past.
They arrived quite quickly and I was quite excited to test it out!
It came in a plastic pouch, inside was the eyelash curler, silver in colour excepy or the eyelash cuhion which is a vivid purple. It also has three spare cushions in a plastic test tube. This is quite good value, as alot of other eyelash curlers only provide one replacement cushion, and as they wear out quite quickly and cant be replaced it means buying a whole new curler. So the fact that Tweezerman provide 3 spares means that it will last a good while.
***How to use***
Put your thumb and middle finger in the loops at the bottom of the curler, spread the loops so the 'mouth' of the curler opens wide.
Place the curler so that the top part sits nicely on your eye, make sure the lashes are in the middle, sitting on the purple cushion. Squeeze the finger loops back together firmly, but not too hard as this wont improve your curl.
Wait for 10-30 seconds
Release eyelashes gently.
You can increase the curl by heating the curlers with a hairdryer for a few seconds before curling, which is what I do, but be careful you dont heat them up too much and you burn the delicate eyelid. Aldo, you should always curl eyelashes before you put mascara on, as the mascara makes the eyelashes brittle and you might end up breaking them.
I bought the product because it promised me ''the finest lash curler available, featuring extra sturdy construction and a smooth opening and closing action. The silicone lash pad is thick and round to form a more intense curl without creasing the lashes. '' I was really impressed with the curl. I have had curlers in the past that give you a great curl but it doesnt last longer than five minutes before they are as straight as they were before. This isnt the case with these curlers. The curl lasts all day (unless my lashes get wet, but I would expect this from any curler) even when I apply mascara. The curl given is natural looking too, so I dont look ridiculous with eyelashes that sit at a 90 degree angle (this has happened to me too!). This curler is easy to use and doesnt pinch or hurt when I am using it either.
As I said before, the cushion pads in the eyelash curler do wear out (they get a ridge in them rom constantly being pressed), but these silicon ones are harder wearing that ones I have tried before, I have had these a couple of months and I havent had to replace it yet, but I think I will do soon. But even if I replace it tomorrow, I still have 3 more spares, so they could last 8 months. This is quite good as I have had some that have worn out in a few months.
I would definately say that these are the best eyelash curlers I have tried, and I feel like I have finally found a product that I am happy with. i will be buyng these again when I have used all the cushioned pads.
I am giving the product 4 stars, only because the price maybe too expensive for some people, but i definately think they are well worth it.
