Sleek Eyelash Curler by MAC
MAC Full Lash Curler ($20.00) is easy-to-use, doesn’t pinch, and yields a soft, natural curl that stays. I’ve been using this for the past few weeks when I’ve gone to curl my lashes, and I think it’s very comparable to shu uemura’s curler in shape, feel, and use. If you have smaller eyes, you might consider MAC’s Half Lash Curler. This particular version of the curler is all black, because it is/was part of the Carine Roitfeld collection. I think the all-black coloring makes it look rather sleek (and reminiscent of Chanel’s). It came with one additional curling pad.
When I use this, I’m able to get all my lashes between the curler, and the curl is natural and never an L-shape. I don’t feel like you have to squeeze your lashes to death to get a good curl either! The handle is large enough to accommodate a variety of hand sizes. The overall curler felt sturdy, and I’ll definitely keep this with my lash/brow basics for regular use.
