Worst Beauty Buy: Quo Travel Eyelash Curler

Hey my loves!

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.

How it works is 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 when I tried to use it it was terrible. Such a shame, it’s so darn cute!

Pros

  • Fits in your makeup bag
  • $3.99

Cons

  • 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!

So all in all NOT a product I would recommend. If I press very very slowly I can sometimes get it to curl without snapping down but you have nowhere near the control you get with a regular eyelash curler. I definitely see why it was priced so much lower than all the other curlers.

    1. It kind of is, I never know if it’s going to snap on my eye or eyelashes. I’m not going to be using this one anymore! I wish I could get curl from my mascara, my eyelashes refuse to curl without extra help 😦
