Would you ever think of leaving your house without a coat (or three) of mascara? Me either. Even the days I’m practically bare-faced, I use my trusty eyelash curler and mascara. That trusty traditional metal must-have may have just gotten bumped to the back of the makeup drawer however, thanks to Chella’s Heated Eyelash Curler.
No more pinching lashes pre-mascara; the sleek heated wand is for use after mascara application. After allowing to heat for 20 seconds, starting under the lash line carefully lift and hold lashes against the eyelid for up to 10 seconds. Users can take up to 3 passes using the Heated Eyelash Curler.
I’m happy to report the results are nothing short of perfection. I was initially worried the wand would “take off” the mascara as I swept up, but it really just lends a smooth curled look, without the kind of “curling” we’ve all grown so accustomed to. Using one AAA battery (included), I suppose if the juice ran out when traveling it could prove to be frustrating, but I’m thinking this will have many many uses…I meeeean think how long TV remotes last before a battery change is required.
For “special” occasions, I actually will typically heat my old metal curler with a hairdryer and then VERY carefully curl my lashes. No more as this allows me to more quickly achieve the same look, even for a 5-minute-face. The Chella Heated Eyelash Curler retails for $22, and if you have an extra Benjamin, I promise, will be the best beauty investment you could make.
