I was in Shoppers a few days ago to pick up a few things and got distracted by the beauty isle (of course). I haven’t owned an eyelash curler in a long time. I think the pads fell off my old one and then it disappeared when I moved, who knows where it ended up at this point. I was looking at all the different curlers and saw this cute little compact curler by Quo meant for your purse or makeup bag.
Here’s how it works: There’s a purple tab on the back that you flip down and squeeze lightly to curl your eyelashes. In theory it sounds nice, but every time I tried to use it it clamped my eyelid! Such a shame, it’s so darn cute!
- Fits in your makeup bag
- No pad on the top so it crimps more than curls
- Has a blocky design which doesn’t really fit the shape of my eye so it doesn’t fit over most of my eyelashes
- Pressing down the tab is not smooth at all! It goes half way, gets stuck, and then all of a sudden CLAMPS my eyelid/eyelashes. It’s quite startling!
This is NOT a product I would recommend. If I press very very slowly I can sometimes get a curl without snapping down but you have nowhere near the control you get with a regular eyelash curler. I now understand why it was priced so much lower than all the other curlers.
