Eyecurl II Hot Brush Eyelash Curler

A few months ago, I got myself one eyecurl II hot brush eyelash curler, after reading quite a few cotters raving about it. In fact, thanks to a friend who gave me a call asking me whether I want to get one..or else maybe I will forget about getting one .... this is how is look like:

- Easy to use ( even for a makeup newbie like me)
- Able to achieve the curling effect without "L" shape
- very fast to achieve the curling effect ( think only need 1 min for both sides)
- able to melt mascara clumps
- safety net ( "plastics teeth" to prevent the metal rod from touching my eyelid)
- Cheap
- quite nice black shiny appearance, like look like a mascara.
- it should be lasting ( 5 hours after I curled my lashes, the curls are still there)

- I can feel the heat when the eyelash curler comes close to my eyelid ( but it should not touch our skin)
- its a bit heavy, since it works on AA battery
- it maybe troublesome if run out of battery or no battery.
- the cap is not able to close tightly, so if put in pouch, it may fall off.
- it consume battery rather heavily, like drinking water.
There are a few ways that people use this, can be used before or after mascara..

As for me, I used it this way:
manual curler> mascara> eyecurler II ( somehow the heat will melt the clumps)
I also tried to use it on my bare eyelashes, and it does help to curl as well..

However, after using this for a couple of months, I find that the results are better when I first use it.. maybe there was once when I put it in my bag and only to realise a few hours later, that the curler has been switch on for a few hours... so since than, I always remove the battery after using the curler. and one thing to remember, must also use the little brush to clean the curler after every use, so that debris/mascara wont get dried up on the metal rod.

Here is an interesting advertisement on eyecurl II ...
