Ardell Heated Eyelash Curler
A curling iron for your lashes....
I never liked the traditional type of eyelash curler, but the thought of using a heated one kinda scared me. However, I decided to give it a try anyway despite the mixed reviews. I have to say this thing is really neat and does the job! I will say that there is definitely a learning curve and a certain technique to achieve the desired results. I have been using an eyelash growth enhancer (a Groupon special) for about 6 weeks now and my lashes are actually thicker and longer, so when I curl them it really makes a difference. I use some clear mascara in addition and am very impressed with the results. Several women at work have noticed and complimented me on them. I give this item an A+++++

I'm a professional makeup artist/aesthetician and this is one of my fav tools! I wonder if the previous reviewers used it AFTER applying mascara? I use this by itself and also with a traditional curler. Start out with a trad curler if you wish, then apply mascara, after use this to shape your lashes exactly how you want them and the mascara will work like hairspray to hold them in place with precision. It's an amazing tool.

Excellent eyelash curler
This eyelash curler is excellent. It does not get really hot, but if you use it properly then it will work wonderfully. For those of you who cannot get it to work check out Robert Jones' video on how to curl your lashes. His technique is great and your lashes will stay curled longer by using his technique.

good for touch-ups
I've tried another (~$5) heated eyelash curler in the past and was very impressed with its results, so I was excited to try this one. Disappointment. Either I'm using it wrong (i.e. not going slow enough, not holding the curl to cool long enough) or it's a very weak and short lasting curl.
However, I can see this tool being useful for touch-ups throughout the day, easily tagging along in ridiculously small purses since it's the size of a thick pen.
