I have spurts of obsession. Now, I am kind of into heated lash curler. I have reviewed on Blinc and Eyecurl II; Panasonic EH2351AC Heated Eyelash is currently my favorite (but Panasonic has come out with a newer model – with rotating head!), until perhaps I get my hands on the rotating curler.
[The Missy’s Say]
Panasonic EH2351AC Heated Eyelash has double heating coils, but it also has a brush like slip-in cover, which creates a small distance for the lash/skin from the heating coil. The brush head also helps to separate the lashes, so that you don’t get clumped lashes (it happens frequently with regular heated curlers, especially after mascara application).
Unfortunately, it is quite similar to Blinc, it can be a little too hot for comfort. I am not sure if it’s just me, because I am super highly static, I get sparked by static quite frequently, so it could be just me that feels a little sparked by the heat on my lids. That said, it’s better than Blinc because of the brush head.
Also, this takes longer to heat up, as compared to the other two.
(Same advice for Blinc – What’s written for Blinc’s review – applies to this too) First, if you have stick-straight lash, you will want to use a traditional squeeze curler first, but just be gentler than usual, don’t squeeze too hard. Then, apply mascara, wait for it to dry. Finally, use the heated curler. The curled lashes don’t last without mascara.
Very importantly, know that just combing your lashes up will not give you the kind of curve you want. The trick is to sweep up from the roots, and then stop in the middle of the lash, let it stay for 3-5 seconds, then place the curler on the ends of the lash, and ‘press’ them down, that way, you create a curl.
The instruction below comes with the purchase, and it’s probably the best illustrated instruction.
See step 5, this where you press the tip down to create the curl.
Among Blinc, Eyecurl II and Panasonic EH2351AC Heated Eyelash, this is the winner!
(What’s written for Blinc’s review – applies to this too) There is no perfect solution for straight lashes, especially if you live in South East Asia, where humidity is throughout the year. That said, the curls created from the heated curler are more natural and it has better lasting power as compared to the conventional curler.
Aside, the conventional curler tends to pull out some lashes in the midst of pressing, the heated curler doesn’t.
Definitely loving this, but I am curious about the rotating one.
