I am assuming that 70% of us have either used a lash curler or own one in their lifetime. If you are one of those that are scared to get on for fear of taking anything close to your eyes and lashes, especially metallic, I am reviewing an eyelash curler which will be easier to make friends with and will be easier for first timers to use. So, it here goes:
I am not ashamed to own up my first purchase ever from inglot, yeah, I am very late to the party, but Inglot mania from IMBB is catching up and so I ventured into the popular site that sells Inglot. For our readers in Chennai, there is a fancy store in EA mall which falls on some side of the mall. I have only seen it from a distance as I always nudge and get pushed in Health and Glow aisles between aunties who are busy saying, “I want a dark dark lipstick,” and the reason being that I find all brands under one roof in Health and Glow, but its time to pay a visit to the very exclusive inglot store once I have done my homework on Inglot. The lash curler was an impulse buy considering I have some four metallic ones already. An ELF (disaster), Oriflame, QVC, and a random local one. The local one bought five years ago for Rs. 50 still works best for me I tell you, but I had to move on and I bought this plastic one from Inglot, which looks oh-so-less dangerous and can be carried around in the handbag.
The curler comes in plastic, no-metal-involved like the regular eyelash curlers and that is the sole reason I got this one. The clip is supposed to be pulled back and they also provide an extra pad which I have pointed out. The clip goes back once your lashes are in place and you can hold it for 30 seconds and done! There are lesser chances of accidents considering there are sharp edges and no nooks where your lashes can get caught (yes that happens). Just plain serious business, nice, firm plastic, it looks very sturdy too.
Now, for the results, I must say that the metallic ones work better for me, the only reason being that I can exert more pressure on the lashes with the metal ones. With this, no matter how much or how long I press the lashes between the clamp, the result is softer curl and very gentle pressure and that is why I say it is best for newcomers to eyelash curlers.
I did not try to heat it up with a blow dryer which I do when I am in the mood, with the metallic ones. This one is all plastic, so I am not bringing my blow dryer anywhere close to it. I suggest this be tried out by people who don’t own one or are scared of lash curlers. Don’t expect better results than the metal ones, but still good for gentle curl fun. Set up the curl with a good mascara and you should be good for some 8 hours.
One more thing I want to point out about this one is that you need a certain amount of length of the lash to be held in the clamp. It’s a bit tedious to get close to the base of the lashes for me and I wish I had longer lashes, though I am happy with the lashes I have :P, but don’t buy it if you don’t have little longer lashes.
The curler clips back in place very much like a nail cutter I say and is so easy to carry around. Out of the five I own, this will the first choice for on-the-go curling definitely. It feels very compact and convenient really. Now, I am yet to try the heated lash curlers and the lash curling wand 😀
Last Word on Inglot BP Eyelash Curler:
Gentle, effective, less dangerous, but you need some length of lashes to get under the space of the curler, it is little difficult to get to the base of the lash and the results are not better than the metal ones, good for starters I say!
PS :I know the instructions are not for the experienced, the curler and the instructions for usage are for beginners 😛
