**Disclaimer: I have received products to try from Crave Naturals & am simply sharing my personal opinion which may vary from yours. I was not compensated for this review.
Just the other week, I was staring at my little boy in amazement of his eyelashes. They are long & have just the right amount of curl to make me jealous. Yep, jealous of a 4-year old over his eyelashes. I mean, really, I have to go to great lengths to get my lashes looking half as good. Okay, not really great lengths, but at least some bit of effort. But the only issue I have, is that I don't like to wear mascara in the summer. I don't know why, it's just always been a "thing" for me. On occasion I'll break my habit, but only if I'm going out for the night. But I do curl my eyelashes. Or at least I thought I did. Apparently all this time I was just torturing myself to get semi-decent results.
|Can I just say that I love this packaging?!|
This Whiplash Eyelash Curler from Crave Naturals is amazing! It has an ergonomic handle that actually helps grab your lashes at the root, giving you fully lifted & curled results with total control. The best part though, is that there is no pinching or pulling & it fits every eye shape.
Aside from the Whiplash Eyelash Curler itself, inside the box there were also 10 lash cushions. You can see in the picture above, that the cushions themselves are actually quite rounded. This helps to give your lashes more of a curl, than an upward crimp. Actually, up to 80% more of a curl!
But probably the most thoughtful design on the Whiplash Eyelash Curler, is the latch closure. This helps to protect the curler & lash cushion when you're traveling, or even when it's just tossed into your makeup bag. I can't tell you how many times I've lost the cushions to my old eyelash curler just from tossing them in my makeup container when I was done with them. (Too many to count!)

Curling your lashes is beyond easy! Start with clean, mascara-free lashes. Curling after applying mascara will sometimes cause your lashes to stick to the curler & come out. Therefore, completely defeating the purpose if you ask me. (If you want to, you can quickly heat up the curler with a hair dryer, although not necessary.) Lift the curler to your eyelid, closest to the roots of your lashes, & gently squeeze the handle together with your thumb & finger. Hold the curler in place for 5-10 seconds before releasing, take a look & repeat until you have the desired amount of curl. Then just apply mascara if you'd like, for a more voluminous lash.
You should probably know too, that the curl actually lasts! Which is even better for my lack of mascara use in the summer months. It's so nice to still look like I have eyelashes!
The Whiplash Eyelash Curler is available on Crave Naturals & Amazon (with Prime shipping available).
