Thank goodness for eyelash curlers, especially for those of us with straight lashes! However, I’ve had a love-hate relationship with eyelash curlers. More often than never, I’d accidentally clip my skin (ouch!) which then put me off these curlers for months before I’d turn to them again. Secondly, they were always rather awkward to pack in makeup bags, with the easel doing splits all the time. Lastly, I didn’t find that my lashes would stay curled all day. In fact, I was lucky if it stayed for half a day.
I’ve tried electric eyelash curlers (shaped like a pen with a heated brush) and while they are quite effective, I find them time-consuming, especially when waiting for the brush to become warm. Plus, once the battery inside died, I couldn’t be bothered to replace them. (See how lazy I am?)
I discovered Japonesque’s Go Curl Eyelash Curler by chance while browsing Amazon.ca one day. It was the design that caught my eye. This was small, sleek, and compact, and looked very light. Further research showed that many users of this curler (mostly those with straight lashes) swore by the efficacy of this curler. As this curler was less than C$9, I was sold on the product.
When I received my curler, I immediately tested it on my lashes. Not only was this easy to use, I found that my lids were less likley to get caught (that said, do be careful as it can still happen) between the white pad and pink ‘pincher’. Furthermore, despite how delicate the curler looked, I didn’t have to pinch very hard to produce the curl I desired. I was even more impressed when I noticed that my lashes were still curled at the end of the day. Even with the weight of mascara on the lashes, this curler has proven that it can produce long-lasting curls.
Japonesque’s Go Curl includes an extra pad tucked inside the curler though I’m still unsure as to how often these pads need to be replaced. Does anyone know? Is it every 3 months for sanitary reasons? I suppose if I learn that I’m supposed to change the pads as often as possible, then the free refills offer (‘free refills available for the life of the curler’ I assume means unlimited refills) from Japonesque makes this curler the best deal out there. Sephora and some nameless brands carry the same sleek eyelash curler in different colours with prices ranging from C$4-10. I don’t believe they come with unlimited refills, however.
Really, ladies (and gents), look no further. This is the only eyelash curler you’ll ever need. Say goodbye to the old-fashioned curlers of the past!
I have those lashes that seem to layer over my eyes like a downward fan. 😦 I have always used by shu ueumura,and find it is okay, does the job. But this would be awesome to try! Thanks for letting us know about it! Do you know where it’s made by chance? 😀 Thank you!
Oh believe me, these work wonders! I have straight lashes too so I call this the HG eyelash curler! I assume the one I ordered online was made in Japan or China. 😛 Hope you find one like it that works for you!
I shall definitely let you know when I purchase one and if it’ll be HG! hehe
Great! I really hope it’s worth it!
Have you tried the Shu Uemura curler? If you have, how does this compare? Right now, I consider the Shu Uemura one to be my lucky one, but I can definitely see the benefits of a compact curler.
P.S. I finally commented. Yay!! 😀
Hurrah and thank you for commenting! 😀
I’ve never tried the Shu Uemura eyelash curler but I imagine it does do a good job. I’ve simply given up on eyelash curlers. The one I had used for years was from Shiseido I believe. I just know that I can use the compact curler without a mirror and it truly holds a curl like no other – from morning til night!
