Please step up if you’re the girl that told me in the comment a year or two ago that you sliced off your entire lash line with an eyelash curler. True story, one of my reader’s told me that she fell while curling her lashes and ended up giving her eyelashes a bit of a haircut. Ouch! I told her thank god it was only her lashes, it could have been her eye.
I do have a recommendation if your eyelashes need a nice haircut, never fear the NYX Eyelash Curler is here to do the job.
I was waiting in line at Nordstrom recently and of course, they have those bins hanging around as you wait in line. It’s an evil ploy and trap to make you spend more money as you wait. “Oh I just came here to buy a pair of shoes but I’ll just buy some lipgloss, two new Iphone cases, earbuds, and an the NYX Eyelash Curler from HELL!
This little guy was a mere $2 bucks and considering I was waiting on Black Friday (this was two weeks before the big day) to buy myself a few new Shu Eyelash Curlers (as hey, 25% off during Black Friday/Cyber Monday!) I decided to add it into my cart.
My mentality was, 1. I could use it until the sale when I’d stock up on three new Shu Eyelash Curlers and 2. Maybe it would surprise me and become my great budget discovery.
OMG THE PAIN AND AGONY!
I’ve read a few mediocre reviews but all in all the word on the street is the NYX Eyelash Curler does a fair job curling lashes. Personally, I’d stay away from it. I filed mine under G as in garbage. The actually design of the curler is good if not the fact the handle is a little shorter but the lash cage seemed large enough and the actual curler was lightweight but fit comfortably in my hand. But man, the lash curling pad acts like a razor and pinch like nobody’s business. When I removed it from my eye not only didn’t it curl my lashes but it actually pulled some of them out. NOT good.
Needless to say this one had to get tossed. I was actually scared of it because I thought maybe the first go was a fluke but when I tried it on my other eye it ripped a few more lashes out and I was all, “Oh no, I don’t think so!”
Word to the wise, if you’re in line at Nordstrom and see the NYX Eyelash Curler, AVOID IT AT ALL costs.
