I was skeptical because I've owned a ton of lash curlers and most are ho-hum, pinching or ill fitting, some giving a really sorry excuse for a curl. Others are too extreme, putting a weird crimp in my lashes that looks awful even if I pump up through the lash. I'm Caucasian and have hooded eyes, I didn't know if the claim that this fits round eyes well would be better for me or not... yes! It fits over my eyes perfectly, never pinches, and curls sufficiently without giving a crimp even if I really hold it in place. The rose gold color is attractive and the metal body is easy to clean and feels durable. I plan to finally clear out my Shiseido, Tarte, MAC, Surrat, Shu, etc. in favor of this. Like any good courler it came with replacement pads, and I would replace after they're used up because curlers can warp over time.
