I received the Bella & Bear Eye & Mighty Eyelash Curler for free, for the purpose of conducting this review. Naturally, I was excited, because you all know that I love nothing more than testing new beauty products! When it comes to adding a little something extra to my eyelashes, I can use all the help I can get. I am not a huge fan of fake eyelashes, unless I am going to a very fancy event, or I am dressing up for a theme party or Halloween. They irritate my eyes and I have trouble getting them off without damaging my eyelashes. However, I have eyelashes that are pretty skimpy for the size of my eyes. Therefore, it is important to me to use a high-quality eyelash curler and a dramatic, long-lasting mascara to create my look. Even if I am going with the basic look, I always curl my eyelashes and do my eyebrows -- it's habit!
I would never leave my eyelashes au natural, or with just a coat of mascara. For some reason, mine are very straight, and stubbornly so. I have been through several eyelash curlers, but I found that it was more a step in my routine, rather than something that actually produced significant results. I depended mostly on my mascara, holding the wand against my lashes in the curled position for a few seconds to try and add that dramatic look that so many girls achieve. The eyelash curler that I had before Bella and Bear's was not the cheapest, but not the most expensive, either. It did an alright job with what I had to work with, but nothing out-of-this-world.
Bella and Bear's Eye & Mighty Eyelash Curler comes in a cute floral box with simple packaging. It has a pretty, dark-red handle that is non-slip. I really like the design, because I feel that it is more ergonomic than I have experienced with my other eyelash curlers. The Eye & Mighty Eyelash Curler is spring loaded, which means you barely have to apply pressure to get the curler to clamp down on your lashes. It is comfortable to hold onto, and it really gets all of your lashes in attempt. I have had eyelash curlers that really pinch and actually rip out some of my lashes in the process, but the Eye & Mighty Eyelash Curler, with very little pressure, was extremely gentle.
The Eye & Mighty Eyelash Curler is so easy to use! All you have to do is keep your eyes wide open (looking up is much easier) and place the eyelash curler at the base of your eyelashes. Then, you just barely squeeze the handles until your eyelashes are "clamped in", and then you hold for about ten seconds before releasing.
I have included a lot of pictures to show my experience with Bella and Bear's Eye & Mighty Eyelash Curler. I feel like the design is superior to my old eyelash curler, and I don't have to hold the curler in place as long as I did with other curlers. You can definitely see the difference that it makes in my naturally straight eyelashes. They go from barely-there to much fuller looking. Bella and Bear suggests adding a coat of mascara for extra drama in your daytime look, and two coats of mascara for a nighttime look. I have before and after pictures with no curling and no mascara, to curling with the Eye & Mighty Eyelash Curler and one coat of mascara. This is a really great product for a reasonable price! I think you will definitely notice the difference in your lashes -- the pictures are the proof here.
BEFORE - BAD LASHES :(
AFTER - GOOD LASHES :)
