Products That Didn’t Make the Cut

And why they didn’t quite make it.

A Little Too Hot

A Little Too Hot

Though heated eyelash curlers will obviously get hot, sometimes they can crank up the heat a little too much. That’s what we found with Hitachi’s Eyecrie Heated Eyelash Curler, Panasonic’s Matsugerun EH-SE50P model curler, and Koizumi’s KLC-0950/Gmodel eyelash curler. While they all gave us a stunning finish, we were worried about singing our eyelashes, eyelids, and sometimes even our eyeballs in the process. Consider these options only if you can handle the heat.

Not an Ideal Finish

Not an Ideal Finish

Despite the assistance of heat to make and keep a nice lash curl, some heated curlers didn’t give us the results we were looking for. audorx Matsugerun RH-1802 model eyelash curler was quite easy to use, but even when heated to its maximum level, our eyelashes weren’t as sky high as we would have liked. We enjoyed Koizumi’s KLC-0960/VP model eyelash curler’s 2-way comb settings, but these combs didn’t produce ideal lashes.

Unique Designs, but Maybe Not for Everyone?

Unique Designs, but Maybe Not for Everyone?

Unique features can make or break a quality heated eyelash curler. For instance, Panasonic’s Matsugerun Double Action EH2331PP model requires you to press up and hold a switch in order for the device to heat up. When you let go of the switch, it cools down. This level of manual labor may not be for everyone, but those who want to be in control of heat levels may appreciate it.

In the case of Nitori’s Heated Eyelash Curler, we found the comb shape to be too curved to accommodate those with both single eyelids and double eyelids. However, we liked that the comb turns from pink to clear when it’s ready to use.

How We Tested the Heated Eyelash Curlers

We put the 15 most popular heated eyelash curlers through two tests, each designed to gauge a different factor. One was to gauge the finish of our lashes, and the other was to gauge how the whole product felt to use.

Test ① Finish

Test ① Finish
To test each heated eyelash curler, we applied clear mascara to a set of false lashes and stuck them on a clear cup. We then used the curlers to curl up the fake lashes and compared to how they looked before and after; we paid special attention to not only how high they were lifted, but also whether or not the lashes fanned out.

Test ② How it Felt to Use

Test ② How it Felt to Use
Next, we asked staff to rate how it felt to use the curlers. We asked them to pay attention to how easy it was to lift lashes, how long it took for the curler to be ready, and how easy it was to tell when the curler was ready. They then rated the devices on a scale of 0 to 5.

Tips on How to Choose a Heated Eyelash Curler – Buying Guide

Here are four big things to look out for.

① Go with a Curler That’s Easy for You to Use

Heated eyelash curlers generally come in two types: stick or curler. Each has different properties and respective pros and cons.

Curler Types are Easier for Beginners to Use

Curler Types are Easier for Beginners to Use
If this is your first time using an electric eyelash curler, we recommend starting off with a curler type. The reason we say this is that it has the same general shape as a traditional eyelash curler, so it’s a shape you may already be accustomed to.
Curler type eyelash curlers will use both pressure and heat to lift up lashes all along your eyelash line fairly easily. These devices tend to be a bit too large to be portable, though, so they might be better suited for home use.

Stick Types are Portable and Safer to Use

Stick Types are Portable and Safer to Use
Stick type heated eyelash curlers are more akin to mascara wands than traditional eyelash curlers. They’re slim and portable, so you can take them with you on the go.
Some people worry that curler types will catch onto their eyelid and cause burns, but there’s no fear about that with stick types. However, since a stick type curler requires that you manually create your own curl, this would be better suited for those who are already used to using a heated eyelash curler.

② Check the Heating Time

② Check the Heating Time
Almost all heated eyelash curlers require you to press a switch to begin the heating process. Most curlers will take between 2 to 3 minutes to be ready, but some can take as little as 10 seconds. If you know you’re going to be using this in a rush, a curler with a short warm up time is what you should look for.

③ Look for a Curler That’s Easy to Clean

③ Look for a Curler That’s Easy to Clean
You’re most likely going to be using a heated eyelash curler when you already have makeup on. This means that not only will oils from your skin and lashes get on the device, but makeup may get in there too. That’s why you should check to make sure you’re able to clean your curler easily before purchasing it; not only is it unhygienic, but it also will prevent you achieving maximum lash lift.

④ Do You Prefer Battery-operated or Plug-in?

④ Do You Prefer Battery-operated or Plug-in?
Heated eyelash curlers are often battery-operated or rechargeable (“plug-in”). There are even some you can use with a USB charger! Each type is great for different situations. If it’s for home use, a plug-in curler would save you money since you don’t have to buy replacement batteries, but you won’t be able to use it without an electrical outlet. Battery-operated ones are great if you’re on the go and need a quick touch up, but you’ll have to purchase new batteries every time. Before deciding on your curler, consider what situation you’ll be using it in.

When to Use a Heated Eyelash Curler – Warnings

When to Use a Heated Eyelash Curler – Warnings
We’re not here to tell you about what situations you may want a heated eyelash curler; we’re talking about how to use it safely. Since heated eyelashes curlers can get, well, hot, there’s a potential risk of burns to your lashes, eyelids, and even eyeballs.
The most effective way to keep your lashes from becoming damaged is to limit the amount of time your lashes are touching the curler. Your lashes are much more sensitive than your hair, so don’t compare eyelash curlers to a hair curler or straightener.
If you wear contacts, you’re much better off using a heated eyelash curler before you put contacts in. The heat from these electric devices can give off enough heat to potentially warp the shape of your lenses.

Looking for Other Eye Makeup Products? Take a Look at These

You’ve got the eyelashes curled, and now it’s time to complete your look (or take it off). We have even more recommendations to make your eyes always look gorgeous.

Summary

We rounded up members from our editing department, purchased the 15 most popular Japanese heated eyelash curlers, and tested them all.
We learned that the best of the best heated eyelash curlers are easy to use and fan out lashes as well as lift them up. We also found that curler types are better for beginners to use while stick types are portable and suitable for those with more heated curler experience. Consider these factors and more as you embark on your search for the perfect heated eyelash curler.
