Years ago, when a Revlon eyelash curler I'd bought didn't quite reach from the inner corner of my eyes to the outer, and curved too roundly and steeply above my lid to grasp my lashes near the base, I embarked on a search for a lash curler with a better fit. (Hello, Shiseido and Shu Uemura; they echo the curve of my eyes from corner to corner and feature excellent bouncy pads besides.) Tweezerman, though, doesn't want to make you search. Instead they now offer a choice, and make the decision easy.
lash curlers for different eye shapes
Tweezerman Lash Logic Lash Curlers come in two versions, one for round eyes and one for almond-shaped eyes.
The Tweezerman ProCurl Lash Logic curler for round eyes ($27.50 at sephora.ca and $20 at sephora.com) has a 60-degree-angle curve – see? Says so on the back of the package. It's the rose-gold version.
The Tweezerman ProMaster Lash Logic curler for almond-shaped eyes ($28 at sephora.ca and $22 at sephora.com) has a 38-degree curve that also works for deep-set eyes (no pinching). I don't know why it's slightly pricier. Supply and demand in North America? Anyway, it's a gunmetal colour.
I have an Tweezerman Classic lash curler that fits my almond eye shape. It's well constructed, features a good curl pad that won't cut off your lashes, and it's about $11 CAN. These new ProMaster Lash Logic curlers seem a bit more substantial and carry a more premium price tag. They're already available in the US at sephora.com. In Canada they're at sephora.ca, and they land next month at Murale and Shoppers Drug Mart.
Thoughts? Have you ever bought a lash curler that didn't fit the curve of your eye? Have you ever used a Tweezerman curler? And have you seen this unusual-looking lash curler also new from the company?
