Regular vs Heated eyelash curler -SEE RESULTS!

Hi everyone,

I decided to put myself forward as a Guinea Pig in search of the truth about...
EYELASH CURLERS

In this post I will compare "hands on" the trusted regular eyelash curler and the new (at least to me) heated version.

Let's the battle commence:

These are the two eyelash curlers I will compare:


The regular eyelash curler is from QVS. This is a cheap drugstore brand that does loads of make up tools. I think this one cost me less than £4.

A close up:


The heated eyelash curler is from N°7 available at Boots and it's normally £14-15 but I got it on a sale for only £5. 
:-)

A close up:
This is what the head looks like:

The light comes up when you turn it on. The bit at the far right is the bit that gets hot. It's not crazy hot...you can safely touch it with your hands and you won't burn. It's a very gentle heat. 

 It requires a small battery. Mine came with one already.

Benefits of the regular eyelash curler?
-Quick
-Minimum effort
-Everyone can do it and would know how to use them
-Cheap (?)

Benefits of the heated eyelash curler?
-New and innovative (for some)
-Bespoke curl (upper and lower lashes)
-No eyelash damage

So, onto the business:

These are my normal ungroomed eyelashes:

A close up to my ungroomed right eyelashes:

A close up to my ungroomed left eyelashes:


I will curl my LEFT eyelashes with the REGULAR EYELASH CURLER
and I will curl my RIGHT eyelashes with the HEATED EYELASH CURLER

So, I curled my left eyelashes with the regular eyelash curler:

Violaaaaa...
Result?: gorgeous and perfectly curled left eyelashes...

And now we try the heated curler on the right eyelashes:
You are not supposed to follow the eyelash curl but to gently pull them backwards to make them curl with the heat.

Violaaaaa...???
Results?: mmmm, unfortunately not impressed!

Let's see again side by side:

LEFT EYE:


Right eye:


So, which one will I go for from now on when I need perfectly curled eyelashes?

Yes, you guessed...the regular one.


It's simple, classic and so easy to use and...it always delivers!

Conclusion: 
if it aint broke don't fix it !!!!!

I hope this post was useful.

See you soon.

    Wow, thanks for sharing this! I&#39;ve been curious over those &quot;new&quot; eyelash curler... now I&#39;m glad to know they&#39;re not worth it!

    I always get the problem that my right eye lashes look so much bigger than my left :( and apparently, they used to paint triangles, with liquid eye liner, under Twiggy&#39;s eyes, to make her bottom lashes appear longer! XX

    @Marie: Thanks :-)<br /><br />@Gaby: I&#39;m glad I only spent £5 on it. It might be that there are better ones out there? I just tested this one and I&#39;m not impressed. We&#39;ll see if I keep on investigating on the subject. I&#39;ll let you know. X<br /><br />@Indigo: Funny you said that because that&#39;s what I thought about my lashes. The left ones are much thicker than the right ones. Strange. And yes..they used to paint them in the 60s...it must have looked a bit scary at a close distance.
