Beauty Review: Sephora Eye Lash Curler

by cate on November 10, 2010

Sephora Eye Lash CurlerI learned about a sad passing a few months ago. The She Uemura Eye Lash Curler was pulled from the US Market place. Currently it is only being sold overseas and on the exclusive She Uemura US website. Of course, I wouldn’t learn this piece of information before my eye lash curler died. Nope, I learned about it afterwards and was stuck trying to figure out what to do. I love my She Uemura curler but I was pretty pissed that it was pulled from store shelves and could only be bought online. I mean who does that with an award winning product? So I used my curler for as long as I could but sadly the pad split in two and started eating my eyelashes and I was stuck facing what I always knew was coming: replacement.

Sigh

Like all other beauty addicts, I took to the internet to try and see what products people were turning to. I found a wide variety of options with fairly good reviews but there was always one little catch. These curlers were all above $15 and did not come with replacement pads nor were replacement pads sold to fit them.  I totally understand the importance of cleaning makeup products to prevent bacteria and growth. I also understand that no everyone does it on a regular basis so replacement pieces aren’t sold so that you have to throw the item away and buy new. But I’m a grown adult and would like the option to throw an item away or replace it. I mean for $15 I should be able to use it for more than 3 months!  I immediately tossed out any eye lash curlers that didn’t come with at least 1 replacement part. I also threw out anything with just a handful of reviews across 3 websites (MakeUpAlley, beauty.com, sephora.com). 

So what was left you ask? Well, the Sephora Eye Lash Curler was the finalist I bought. It was approximately $15, had more than 10 reviews on multiple websites, came with a total of 3 eye lash pads, and was also available in multiple colors including pink. I’ve used it for 3 days this week and so far it is doing the job. I find that I don’t have to push down as hard or as far to curl my lashes versus using my old She Uemura curler but at the same time it isn’t quite as wide across as the She Uemura so I do have to do 2 curls – One for the inner half and one for the outer half. There is no squeezing or pulling of the lashes when using this curler and I have yet to pull out a lash. So right now I’m giving this curler an A- only because it isn’t as wide. Otherwise I’d recommend this curler when you are looking for a new replacement.

I may be tempted to try this with my VIB coupon. I have to admit that I like ELF’s eyelash curler as much as any I’ve tried, though.
