Worst Beauty Buy: Quo Travel Eyelash Curler

Quo Travel Eyelash CurlerI was in Shoppers Drug Mart 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? While I was looking at all the different eyelash curlers and saw this cute compact Quo Travel Eyelash Curler meant for your purse or makeup bag.

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!

Quo Travel Eyelash Curler


  • Fits in your makeup bag
  • $3.99


  • 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!

Quo Travel Eyelash Curler is NOT a product I 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.

    It’s like it’s a child’s toy that’s meant for kids to play with but not be used. I’m glad you didn’t spend a ton on it!

    Eyelash curlers are generally so terrifying! 😱😱😱
    This one seems to be particularly so!

      I’m normally okay with eyelash curlers but this one makes me regret ever wanting to curl my eyelashes!

    Ahh! That looks terrifying! I don’t use eyelash curlers. They scare me. I just really work my mascara wand! 😄

      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 🙁
