Listen, I love a lot of my features, but I have a bone to pick with my eyelashes. They’re thin, sparse, stick-straight, and short. And while some of the best mascaras can enhance them, it’s only to a certain extent. Mascaras can make my lashes look defined, but the product also weighs them down and doesn’t really give me that “eye-popping,” lush effect that I dream of.
There was a point in my life when I did have the most amazing lashes that got me a ton of compliments. But that was when I was on these eye drops for my glaucoma that had very similar ingredients to Latisse, so my eyelashes were full and thick and beautiful. My eye doctor has since switched me over to different drops as part of my regimen, so I’m back to my natural state.
Needless to say, I’m always looking for products that can give my lashes some life. Growth serums, highly rated mascaras… I’ll try them all. So it was only fitting that I give heated eyelash curlers a try. I use a regular eyelash curler pretty much every day since I find that curled eyelashes make my lashes and eyes pop (especially since my lashes normally point downward). So I was intrigued at what a heated one would do. And if we’re being completely honest here, I was worried about the heat factor. Would I burn my eyeballs or singe my already-sparse lashes? Well, I was ready to find out.
