Eyelashes Beware


No makeup tool scares me more than the eyelash curler. Pardon my language, but ladies, this is one scary ass utensil if you ask me!!! My eyelashes are not straight so I haven’t had too much experience with one of these but the pure thought of the dreaded eyelash curler is enough to make me sick.

I know that if you use it properly there is not much that could go wrong, but one small move, sneeze, cough…anything really…will leave you lash-less in a matter of seconds.

You know what is even scarier?? The HEATED eyelash curler!! Not only can you single handedly pull out all of your eyelashes at once, you have the possibility of burning them off as well.

I can’t do it. I cannot bring myself to use this thing. I refuse.

oh this is too funny because I curl my eyelashes every single day (and I heat it for a few seconds with my hairdryer!). I am your worst nightmare! honestly, I have NEVER had a problem using it and I have been using it for a long time now! I have very very very straight eyelashes so I feel like I have to curl them. lol!

I can't live without my eyelash curler!!!!

Brandi said...

I couldn't live with out my eyelash curler either.

Niki said...

Haha! I use one but not really sure if it even does anything to my eyelashes! Never heard of a heated one but that does sound scary!!

The Smith's said...

I'm bad too! I can't LIVE w/o my curler! I even curl and drive!

Em said...

I, too, fear the eyelash curler. Luckily my lashes are pretty naturally curled as well.

I would be lost without my eyelash curler. Best makeup tool ever! It's really no that scary once you get the hang of it!

An eyelash curler is a MUST in my routine. It really does make a huge difference. I don't use a blowdryer to heat mine, but I do put it up near my mouth and breathe some hot air onto it before I go in for the curl...it works, I swear!

It is important to watch the wear of the padding...I had a friend whose was wearing out and she squeezed right through it and ended up chopping her lashes clean off. Horrible!!

Simply Me said...

use mine every morning or not when I'm out and about. Can't live without it... but I get the creeps if it gets dirty so I replace mine alot.

That thing scares the crap out of me!!!

brown eyed girl said...

I use mine daily! I stopped for a couple of years but then once I restarted the eyelash curler, I have decided never to stop again because it's sooo much better!

Brown Eyed Girl said...

Oh I love my eyelash curler! I use it every morning. I have pretty long lashes already but it makes them look even better! I don't have the heated one, but I learned a little trick: blow your hair dryer on it for 5 sec and it works great! You might want to test it out on your hand before placing it against your eye...it might be a little warm!

Sarah, The New Girl said...

hahaha ahhhh!!! no way!!! I'd burn my eye out.

Lis said...

Hahaha this post cracked me up - I'm an eyelash curler addict!!

Nessa said...

Niki said...

OMG thats so funny you said that I was just telling my best friend that i couldnt be in the same room with her while she does it. it absolutely freaks me out. my eyelashes dont need one, but i think even if they did i still wouldnt use it!

Sweet Home Amy said...

Haha, that's so funny! I have one from Sephora, that is travel size. It's plastic, and has a cushion-y curling part. So its much "nicer" to my lashes than the old metal one I used to use. But I am like PPs, I cannot live without it!

Jenny.Lee said...

I could not LIVE without my eyelash curler! I agree that the heated curlers are a bit scary though!

GingerSnap said...

I agree with you! I hate eyelash curlers...they are so scary (they kinda look like a torture device...) I never use one and just rely on some serious mascara :)

Heather said...

haha! I don't use one either, luckily my eyelashes curl naturally :)

Good Gals Inc said...

Okay, THANK YOU!!! My mom has been trying to get me to use this thing forever!! And it scares me so much!!!!! Glad I'm not alone!!!!!

sarah said...

i'm the same way. i refuse to use the dreaded eyelash curler. too many risks. haha

Bethany said...

I am the same way. They scare me too and everytime I've ever tried to use one I rip out a lash or two and mess up my make-up.

No thank you!!

Ashley Paige said...

gah! i'm right there with you- i've been there, done that- with the heated one too! and wow! when you get the tiniest bit of skin caught in one of those babies- holy cow, does it pinch! that was it for me.. now i stick with three brands of mascara.. every. single. morning. and i achieve the same look but without the pain! haha!

The Schumachers said...

I love love love my eyelash curler and don't go a day without using it! I have not however used it heated...THAT scares me!

KRISTEN'S PALACE said...

this is soo funny b/c i will not use one either. it freaks me out to think my eyelashes are being crunched. :( lol.

Melissa said...

You crack me up! I don't use one either. I have, but I really have no need for one!

Leslie said...

I have practically 0 eyelashes... and have never used a curler in my life. It is scary!!!

jlc said...

Oh no! You can do it!! I desperately need a new one.... I hate when I have to replace the shields so I just buy new! Haha... go to Sephora and you'll find great ones there! :)

KitKat said...

I gotta agree with you girl, i'm dreading the eye lash curler too. I could really use it, because my lashes are very straight, but I tried once maybe 10 years ago, did not feel comfortable at all, and haven't touched it since then. Everybody is saying how great toll it is, so I've decided from this moment that I will face my fear and learn to use it.

PreppyGirl said...

I'm totally with you on this.. I don't have a huge fear but still avoid the eyelash curlers as much as possible. My issue with it started when I was in middle school and a magazine suggested heating up the eyelash curler with a blow dryer! BAD IDEA. I burned my eyelid right above where the lashes start. This probably doesn't help your fear of them either haha!

CAC muffin said...

I'm with you it totally scares me!

Just Add Walter said...

When I was younger I had a chicken pox that fell off and took some of my eyelashes with it (they NEVER grew back). I am scared to death of that thing!!
