Maquillage Eyelash Curler
I had been using the same Shiseido eyelash curler for years and the metal was wearing out. Replacing the rubber edge again just wasn't going to cut it. While looking for a new curler at the drugstore, I happened upon Maquillage's Edge Free Eyelash Curler. I couldn't decide between purchasing another (regular) Shiseido curler or Maquillage's, so I asked the woman working at the counter what she thought was best. She told me I should go with the Maquillage curler since it's more suited for larger eyes with lots of lashes, and that it will catch all of my lashes, including the ones in the outer corners. She was right. While I had to curl my lashes in several parts and use a separate, mini curler for my outer lashes when using the regular Shiseido curler, the Maquillage curler catches all of my lashes quite well. It also does a better job of curling them even though they are thick and stubborn. If you have big eyes and thick lashes, I highly recommend the Maquillage curler. If you have smaller eyes and thinner lashes, the Shiseido curler would probably be a better choice. I still use an electric eyelash curler in addition to a regular curler since my lashes won't stay curled otherwise, but Maquillage has made curling them so much easier.
