This is my all time favorite lash curler. I used to use the metal, lash crunching lash curler that would pull lashes out and switched to this one when I found it at a Cosmetics Show. I love that it’s not too hot but warm enough to work. It has a little heat indicator to let you know if it is ready or not. I also love how gentle it is! No lash pads to replace, and no pulling out lashes!
