I get asked this question a lot- what is the best heated eyelash curler? To be honest I had never used an eyelash curler, let alone a heated eyelash curler! My lashes have always had a natural curl to them, and I haven’t needed much else…or so I thought. But as the good clean beauty blogger that I am I wanted to test out some of the best heated eyelash curlers to bring you all some options. After all, a beauty blogger always has to be on the up and up!

I did some research trying to find the best heated eyelash curlers to test out. I wanted to make sure they had some amazing reviews but also weren’t going to break the bank. Plus, I wanted to try a few to give you some options.
I landed on two that I will share with you below. These definitely were well loved when it came to reviews on Amazon! Yes, I got them from Amazon.
If you’re wondering why you would want to get a heated eyelash curler- allow me to explain.
A heated eyelash curler will take your lashes from subpar to next level in a matter of seconds. It’s pretty impressive! I didn’t realize what I was missing. I always thought my lashes were pretty decent. As I mentioned above they have some natural curl to them and aren’t stick straight. However, after using a heated eyelash curler I realized what I had been missing out on! The heated eyelash curler straight delivers! My lashes looked bigger, longer and more dramatic. It was like an instant eye lift for my eye. I was surprised how quick the whole process was. I got two heated eyelash curlers from Amazon. This one and this one. I actually love them both equally and think you would be a fan of either that you used!
How To Use A Heated Eyelash Curler?
You want to first add a coat of mascara to your lashes. Then set your heated eyelash curler to one of the settings. They typically have 3 settings depending on the one you choose. I would choose the hottest setting. It only takes around 15 seconds to heat up. Once it’s heated up, use the heated eyelash curler on your lashes. I would then take the heated eyelash curler and press it for 5 to 10 seconds on the bottom of my lashes(base) then go up to from roots to top of lashes several times to really help exaggerate the curl and lock it in. Then I would apply the second coat of mascara. The more you use it and play with it, the more you get the hang of how to use it! It’s really so easy.
The price of a heated eyelash curler is so small! Yet, so worth it. You can really change the whole look of your eyes using one.
Did I Burn Myself?
I did not burn myself. I really think it would be hard to burn yourself. It does get warm but not scalding hot. I could see getting burned if you left the wand applicator on your eyelashes for too long but they tell you to only leave it there for 10 seconds or so. Plus, the more you use it the easier it gets to get the hang of it. As they say, practice makes perfect!
Is This For Me?
A heated eyelash curler is for you if you’ve dealt with straight lashes and have a hard time curling them. This could be your new bestie! Using a regular eyelash curler can curl lashes but not give the longevity or lasting hold and curl that a heated eyelash curler can give. Heating the lashes really makes a difference when it comes to getting the curl to stay put. Plus, if your lashes are straight, chances are they are a little more stubborn and harder to curl in general. Having a heated eyelash curl is going to give you that extra bit of oomph to really take your curling power to the next level.
My Sister’s Experience
I had to have my sister test out the heated eyelash curler as well. She has very straight lashes and always has to curl them if she wants any sort of lift. I knew she would be a good person to test a heated eyelash curler out because she's dealt with straight lashes her whole life. I bought her one of the heated eyelash curlers and had her test it out. She was impressed with the overall lift of her lashes. She could tell a difference when she used it, versus when she didn’t. I even had her take a before and after photo so you could see the difference in her eyes. It's kind of amazing the before and after! It really does give her lashes lift and volume. This is the heated eyelash curler she tested out.
Would I Recommend A Heated Eyelash Curler?
I would definitely recommend a heated eyelash curler! I think they can really give your lashes a boost and take them to the next level in a matter of seconds. Plus, they are a really good deal for what you get and easy to find since both of the ones I tested were from Amazon. If you're wanting to give your natural lashes some curl and lift this is the best way. Check out the heated eyelash curlers I tried here and here. They both are so great- I don't have a preference!
