I bought my first eyelash curler and I was soo excited to get those dolly lashes. I selected Konad because being a Korean company I think they would do a pretty good job at it. I have always had big and thick lashes so I did not know whether the curling them would look good on me. But then I still wanted to try. I got this one online while picking up some more things lol. As you guys know that online shopping is too addictive, you cannot resist picking up stuff.
Price: Rs. 260
How konad describes the konad eyelash curler:
Eyelash curlers are effective because they take eyelashes, which are ordinarily straight or slightly curved, and create a more dramatic , upward curve at the base of the lash.
By lifting the lash up and away from the eye itself, it makes the lashes appear longer, and the eye appears to be more open and wide.
My experience with Konad eyelash curler:
Have always seen those cute girls from Korea and all over Asia have super cute lashes which create a good dolly look. This being my first eyelash curler I had no expectations from it. It comes in a pink box which has all the description written behind. But no steps mentioned of how to use it for a first time user. Anyways I knew how to use it. The handles of the eyelash curler are white in colour and the rest being in steel. It looks cute but nothing special. It has a rubber strand in middle which would be used to curl up the lashes. They have provided one extra refill pad as well. It is convenient to carry and there is this box also so that the eyelash curler does not get spoiled. I placed the curler on my eyelashes and it was placed correctly but I had to take some efforts to adjust my inner upper lashes into the eyelash curler. Then all the upper lashes got perfectly adjusted and I clipped the curler and left them undisturbed for like 50 seconds. My eyelashes curled up and looked very doll-like as I was expecting.
But again I faced a problem for my inner lashes. The outer lashes were totally upwards and inner ones were straight down. So that looked a bit weird. Now when I applied the gel liner, my curled lashes could hardly be noticed. It simply looked like I had applied my gel liner and mascara over my lashes. When I curled my lashes without any make-up, I could notice a complete change in my lashes but then I hardly go out without eye make-up so it would look like I haven’t done anything. I haven’t used any eyelash curler before so I don’t have anything to compare to. The effect of the curled lashes lasted for about two hours with the mascara and without the mascara barely for one hour so it was a bit disappointing. But I think I have read reviews about good staying power of such curlers, so would put this one into an average category.
Pros of Konad Eyelash Curler:
-Affordable as compared to other good brands
-Easy to carry plus an extra rubber refill provided
-Comes from a good Korean brand
-Makes the lashes appear longer after use
-Turns the lashes upward giving a dolly effect
-Convenient to use
-Easily available on online stores
Cons of Konad Eyelash Curler:
-The effects lasted only for 2 hours with mascara and only an hour without mascara
-Can hurt the skin if not adjusted properly
Will I repurchase/recommend konad eyelash curler?
Neither will repurchase nor recommend it because although the effect was very cute, the effect did not last any longer. The lashes started coming back to its original position. And I think there are better eye lash curlers than this one so you could try them instead.
I want to buy a new eyelash curler than is effective and the results will last long, so I would request you guys to just let me know if you know a good one.
