I struggled to find a good eyelash curler mainly because I didn't want to spend the money. In a pinch, I decided to invest in this one and I don't regret it one bit. It's pretty to look at for starters. Feels great in my hand, no awkward positions to get the right angle. The design requires very little pressure to get a nice pretty curl. So...no pinching, tugging, or missed lashes! Added bonus, it comes with TWO replacement pads.
