April is here! 😀 Such an exciting month for me and I hope you all have something fun to look forward to as well!
I was given the opportunity to review a eyelash curler and was really intrigued — I’ve only ever used one eyelash curler (ELF’s lash curler) and it works well for me, so I was curious to try something new and see how they compare.
About Crave Natural’s Whip Lash Pink Eyelash Curler...
I don’t curly my lashes very frequently, but when I was given the opportunity to review this eye lash curler I decided to brave up and try something new. I’m always a little terrified that the curler is going to cut off my lashes, so I’m pretty picky and thorough when I look into a new eyelash curler. I gave this eyelash curler by Crave Naturals a good inspection and while it doesn’t look ‘high quality’, it does looks promising.
I really liked how the box was designed! As you can see from the pictures in this post, it had a ‘comic book’ theme to it and seemed like a very well made and sturdy box. Inside the curler was supported very securely and had a little booklet and a packet of extra eyelash curler pads. Which I thought was wonderful — they give you enough replacement pads to last you a good long while!
The quality of the curler was fair. It wasn’t outstanding, in my opinion — the pink handles were plastic and the connecting strip the holds the curler closed was made of very thin, almost bendable wire. Just looking at it reminded me of the way the ELF eyelash curler is made. And when I handled it and actually used it, they did seem very similar. So, something to consider.
Product & Ease of Use…
Using the Whiplash Eyelash Curler
was typical of any other eyelash curler I’ve ever seen — you get your lashes between the pad and as close to your lid as possible, then give it a good squeeze for a few seconds. It worked well and curled my lashes just fine. Once mascara was on, I never noticed the curl falling throughout the day. But then again, I don’t have hard-to-curl lashes. So for me, this worked well and did the job just fine!
Major Likes & Dislikes…
Hmm, there isn’t really anything about this product that really stood out to me as a ‘major like’. It was good, did the job well, but I didn’t notice a huge difference between this eyelash curler and my ELF one. And the price difference between the two is pretty significant — ELF’s is a $1 and Crave Natural’s Whiplash
is $14.88, on sale. So, pretty expensive, in my opinion! And, if you’re looking at the quality between the two lash curlers, I’d say they’re both the same.
The Crave Natural’s Whiplash Eyelash Curler
get’s the job done. The design and materials used to make this product isn’t anything outstanding or heavy duty. With the high price tag attached to this curler, I don’t think I would repurchase this product. If you like the look of the box — and the fact that this curler is pink — than maybe this would be worth the price. So it really depends on what your preference is. 🙂
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
Question for My Readers: What’s your favorite curler to use to curl your eyelashes?
Kate S (4readin) says
I don't have an eyelash curler and if I ever get one, I know I will probably go with the ELF brand since you say it works like a more expensive brand for less money. Thanks for the review!
Katie McCurdy says
Kate – Yeah, that;s all that I have. Definitely all you need, in my opinion, if you don't curl them every time. I just do it occasionally, mostly for special occasions. 🙂
Luz (Lucy) says
Every eyelash curler I've ever had seems to work the same to me. I have one I got at Marshalls that I like, but i've never really been crazy about any curler.
Katie McCurdy says
Luz – Same here! I've never been crazy about curling my lashes, and only do it on occasion. And to me, the one I got from ELF for a dollar seemed just as good as this one.
