The clock rang 6am, and I crawled into the shower. Still looking busted and sleepy after a nice long shower, I knew what I needed to do….time to bring out…THE CURLER!
Standing in front of my mirror, I poised my head back, brought my eyelash curler as close as possible to my lashes and clamped down and OOOOOWWWW! Snagged an eyelid AGAIN! Let this be a lesson to all you ladies, DO NOT CURL YOUR LASHES WHEN YOU ARE HALF ASLEEP!
On with the review 🙂
Packaging: The E.L.F eyelash curler usually comes in a clear plastic box. Back when I bought mine, they never did this, but recently I have seen the curlers come with at least one extra replacement pad to use when your pad gets all goopy and cakey, eww 🙂
Product: The curler is a typical scissors like design. Open the tongs, place lashes in between mechanism and push down. I recommend using the curler in a pumping motion, one or two pumps at the base of the lashes and one or two pumps towards the middle. Since the tips of the lashes are the most fragile part, avoid them.
Pricing: $1 USD!
Overall: Love it! I do not use this curler on a regular basis because I am too lazy, but when I do, it gives my lashes that extra VaVA Voom! No, not over the top Victoria’s Secret sexy eyes, but definitely that extra lift to make my eyes look more open, awake, and flattering. My only issue with this curler is that it is harder to use on individuals with flatter eyelids because the curler top is curved.

Ohhhhh Victoria’s Secret how you did me wrong!!!! You suckered me in with your yummy smells and frilly undies and blinded me into buying a lip thingy I didn’t even waaaaaannnt.
Alright I’m a typical chick. I like all sorts of pretty frilly things and when I saw these colorful glossy lip shine thingy’s I was all over them. Not only did they come in an assortment of colors but FLAVORS as well. Pina colada, cherry, berry, strawberry, yum yum yum!
But that’s where the fun stops (READ IN EPIC DOOM VOICE)
Packaging: Typical lipstick style wind up design with clear cap. Very slim and compact making them easy to travel with.
Product: The texture is almost that of a thin lip balm. It slides on fairly easily, but some of the shinesticks have glitter which makes the texture a little rough when applying.
Payoff: The colors are fairly pigmented. They give a tinted balm affect which is really nice because it looks very natural.
Overall: Don’t do it ladies, don’t get suckered in by the heavenly feminine store. This product SUCKS! For the first few days I fooled myself into thinking that these shinesticks were awesome and that I looked like Miranda Kerr in the ads. Yeah, FAIL! The product exaggerated the lines and cracks in my lips and after a period of time they dried up my once hydrated lips. They had weak lasting power and overall were just blah. However, I still love the smells and they don’t taste half bad.
If you own these and have found a way to make them work for you, please share! I’d hate to waste the four that I bought.
