Heated Eyelash Curlers Yay or Nay?

As a new beauty blogger, and Avon Rep, I have to admit that heated eyelash curlers are brand new to me. At first thought, they seem a bit scary and dangerous. I am, after all, someone who’s given herself third degree burns with a curling wand so the thought of putting a heated instrument anywhere near my eyes gives me the willies.

Then again, we all know that heated hair tools work miracles on our tresses so why should our lash hair be left out of the magic?

Let me make it clear that Avon does not sell these. I came across heated eyelash curlers as a beauty trend after reading a blog post about them and decided to do a bit of detective work on my own to see what all the fuss was about.

After a quick search at Amazon, where I’m an affiliate, I found that there’s three main types, one looks something like a mascara, one looks similar to the eye lash curler I’ve always known and loved… only chunkier and on steroids, and the third option is a warming station for your standard non-heated eye lash curler to sit in and get warmed up.

Apparently heated eye lash curlers do the same thing as the non-heated ones but the effects are supposed to be much bolder and longer lasting. It is also recommended to use mascara afterwards to seal the curl into the lash.

After selecting to see only heated eye lash curlers with 4 star ratings and up, I truly wouldn’t want to go cheap on something used on such a delicate part of my body, I found that most of them only cost about $20 dollars, some a little more, some much less.

3 Heated Eyelash Curler Styles

Here’s an example of each of the types of heated eyelash curler styles I found. The descriptive style names are my own concoction for lack of a better way to describe the differences to you. In other words, you will not find “Chunky Style or Mascara Style Heated Eyelash Curler” in a search anywhere but here at my blog.

I must also make it clear that I’ve never tried any of the following and since I’ve never tried them, I’m NOT recommending any of them either. I’m showing them here only for comparison sake. Please do your own careful detective work before purchasing any heated beauty tools. And be VERY CAREFUL if you decide to try them.

Heated Eyelash Curler – Mascara Style

Heated Eyelash Curler – Chunky Style

Eye Lash Curler Warming Station

After much deliberation, I think I’d prefer to start with the chunky style because I think it would be harder for me to burn myself with that type. However, it is NOT the most popular style as proven by the fact that there are tons of the mascara type on the market and not as many of the chunky style. I should also note that the Japonesque (chunky style) is listed as an “Amazon’s Choice” product and is the least expensive of all the ones I’ve featured here today.

Then again, I personally might hold off a bit longer. They do still seem a bit frightening to someone who is as klutzy as I am. So, for now anyway, I think I’m giving them a nay.

How about you? What do you think? Is a heated eyelash curler a yay or a nay for you? Have you tried one yet? Which type do you use or recommend? Do you think these tools are too dangerous to use so close to your eyes? Has beauty gone a step too far? Join the discussion and share your views on heated eyelash curlers in the comments section. I’d love to know what you think about them.

Wishing you a beautiful day,

Your Online Avon Lady, Robin S.
