There was a time where I was obsessed with wanting eyelashes that are actually visible. After a lot of google searching I came across the Eyecurl II heated eyelash curler. This was my very first heated eyelash curler (and probably my favourite) but I have a love/hate relationship with it. There were issues that made me turn to my Panasonic one.
The first thing that I noticed about this was how cheap it felt in the hands, especially when there is no battery inside. The plastic makes it feel like a toy in your hands, especially the horribly spray painted flimsy battery lid. The overall weight is only from the battery that you have inserted Performance:
Out of all my heated eyelash curlers, this is/was my favourite for many reasons. The coils get very hot very quickly and hence gives me the most amazing curl that actually lasts all day. The heat indicator actually works on this despite it looking like a random blob on the tip. It turns from a red to a white colour when hot.
But there were problems. Because it becomes very hot, this is the one that tends to cause watery eyes. If you don't have stable hands, do not get this. The bare coils will burn your eyeballs. There isn't a separating comb on this so a lot of mascara builds up and lashes can sometimes clump because of this. It'd be better if the gaps between were not so far apart. I actually have 2 of these and guess what? Neither of them work. That's why there aren't any close up eyelash pictures here. The first one died after a few months of amazing usage. But after getting very unsatisfying results from other curlers, I ended up buying another one. This also died on me very quickly. Even after using brand new batteries. Sighhhh.
Very hot which means amazing curls that last all day
Heats up very quickly
Heat indicator to show when it is hot enough to use
The bare coil can accumulate a lot of buildup (and be a little intimidating)
Lashes can clump because there is no separating comb
The heat causes watery eyes
Drains battery very quickly
So after all that I did decide to settle on one that didn't work as great. But if this had a better build quality and stop randomly dying on me, I would definitely head out to buy another one.
