Sephora Mini Heated Lash Curler Review


OMG OMG !!!
It is my pleasure to announce the new love of my life that came walking into my life in the form of a battery operated "pink" heated eyelash curler .
I have been looking for the ultimate eye lash curler for my oriental lashes.
My eyelashes are - straight and stubborn when it comes to curling them.
The mechanical ones i have tried so far have all let me down.

So i was thinking of buying the Shu uemura curler .
But i read mixed reviews about it esp when it comes to oriental eyes.
(says its difficult to curl the inner most corner lashes and the curvature doesn't suit Oriental eyes)
Left with no option i was sure i would never meet the curler of my dreams
 (*i'm starting to sound love-struck *) lol

I bought the Sephora mini heated lash curler during my first visit to Sephora without reading any reviews.
And i'm so glad i did.
Because many people have bad reviews about it which i'm sure would have made me change my mind .
Without further delay, here is the review of the "PINK" wonder.



PACKAGE-


It is only about 3 inches long and thumb size wide.
A black matte body with a neon pink back and cover.
The back accommodates the mini battery.
The Heating element is U-shaped with coils around it.
The temperature is just right to curl the lashes.
(No,its not hot like many of you must be dreading)

WHAT IT IS:


A travel-size heated eyelash curler.

WHAT IT DOES:


Keep your lashes looking lovely, even on the go, with the Sephora Brand Mini Heated Eyelash Curler. 
This handy little tool is perfect for curling stubborn straight lashes, anytime, anywhere.

WHAT ELSE YOU  NEED TO KNOW:


Designed to be used after mascara application, this curler gently warms the waxes in mascara,
 resulting in a stronger, longer-lasting curl.
 Simply turn on, wait 15 seconds, place the comb directly onto lash line above lashes,
 gently lift and comb (don't wiggle) lashes into the desired shape (as you would with a mascara brush),
 hold for one or two seconds, then release.
 Repeat across lashline until the desired effect is achieved.
 For extra impact, place at tips of lashes, gently push up and back, hold for 2-3 seconds, then release.




Before

After

I applied 2 coats of Etude HOUSE volumecara on my lashes before curling.
The Mini heated lash curler melts away the clumps and gives a really beautiful natural curls to my lashes.


PROS-


1.Very cute package
2.Travel friendly
3.Removes clumps from mascaras by melting it.
4.Gives a very natural big wavey curl to the lashes which i have not experienced with any other mechanical  lash curler
5.It helps in curling even the innermost corner lashes.
6.The curl lasts whole day !!!

CONS-


1.Non availabilty maybe an issue
2.I'm scared the melted mascaras will clog the mini heating coils.
3. Very time consuming process.
You need lotsa patience (but its totally worth it)
Not preferred if you are in a hurry.
4.A bit on the expensive side.
5.Some people may not be comfortable using heat on their lashes.

PRICE- Rs.1200 (about $22)


WHERE TO BUY- Sephora outlets.



I am absolutely in love with this one.

WOULD YOU TRY HEATED LASH CURLER?

    Interesting! I've also got stubborn straight lashes that never curl, so I'd like to give it a try. In the past I've had my lashed permed and curled-which is great for special occasions but won't last more than 3 months maximum-and Maybelline xxl with the white conditioner on one end and the mascara on the other. That is one of the few mascaras that actually works for me.

  18. I'm glad you like this product. I've tried something like this before and I'm really not comfortable with the heat being so close to my eyes! So for now I'll stick to the traditional eyelash curler. xx

  31. Good review, but I also have Asian eyelashes... I think my mechanical one gives better curl, but the curl doesn't last for more than 2 hours. So, mixed feelings!

  32. doesn't it give damage toyour eyelashes for longterm usage??
