We went on the hunt for the best eyelash curler, and after testing countless curlers, we narrowed it down to 8 amazing options. And these picks not only enhance the lashes but they keep the lashes healthy and in tact.
And, we have to admit, this challenge was not easy on our lashes. We suffered through some pretty brutal and seemingly torturous devices. We’ve been pulled, pinched and plucked until our lashes are half of what they used to be.
However, it is all worth it. These eyelash curlers will save us money in the long run and from future embarrassing lashes when we need them to perform the most.
The eyelash curlers we chose helps to lift, lengthen and curl beautifully while preserving the lashes we have. Additionally, we chose 2 heated eyelash curlers which is the perfect solution for those of us with stick-straight eyelashes.
So, whichever best eyelash curler you choose to go with, your lashes will thank you. Over and over and over again, especially on that day you need them the most.

Tweezerman Pro Curl Rose Gold Eyelash Curler
We love our Tweezerman tweezers so we weren’t surprised when this eyelash curler came knocking on our door. However, it’s best to note that this eyelash curler is designed for those with round shaped eyes. It does work for most people with almond shaped eyes but it has a 60 degree angle design that is best suited for round shaped eyes.
The Tweezerman Pro Curl Rose Gold Eyelash Curler offers a doubled-body design for durability and control. Additionally, it gives added comfort than eyelash curlers with a single-body design. And the finger loops are contoured to give added comfort.
This eyelash curler has a narrowed top bar and a wide opening to ensure no lash is left behind. And there’s a thick, rounded silicone pad that delivers intense curl without any creasing or sticking. The Tweezerman Pro Curl comes with 3 additional silicone replacement pads.
Overall, we love how this eyelash curler curls and it definitely passes all of our requirements for the best eyelash curler. However, this isn’t the most comfortable curler around. Don’t get us wrong, it’s not uncomfortable but it’s not the most comfortable. Furthermore, this eyelash curler is best suited for those with round shaped eyes, so if you have almond shaped eyes, you might be better off going with another pick.
Kevyn Aucoin The Eyelash Curler
The Kevyn Aucoin Eyelash Curler is a traditional curler with the slim, stainless steel design. And this is a coveted eyelash curler and it’s easy to see why. This eyelash curler delivers dramatic curls. And in addition, this curler can be flipped upside down to curl the bottom lashes for an even more dramatic look.

Overall, we personally aren’t too fond of the traditional design. We find it to be a bit burdensome on our fingers. But, this curler isn’t as uncomfortable as a lot of the traditional ones out there. However, because this eyelash curler gives the most amazing curl, we gladly looked past the design and gave this eyelash curler a coveted spot on our best eyelash curler list.
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
This award-winning eyelash curler is another traditional style pick that delivers an amazing curl. The Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler has a specially curved angle that is suited for all shapes and sizes of eyes.

Best Heated Eyelash Curler
Mirenesse Cosmetics iCurl Twin Heated Lash Curler
Our first pick for best heated eyelash curler has twin heated pads and applies pressure from the base to the tip for a maximum curl. The heat delivers through curved silicone pads that provide a 90 degree angle curl.
The Mirenesse Cosmetics iCurl Twin Heated Lash Curler uses low heat and gently applies pressure so you don’t fry your lashes. To use, slide the button to ON to start heating and in 10-15 seconds, the red light will turn to clear to let you know when heated. Slide the silver button to push up the pads to curl the lashes and hold for 15 seconds. Once the 15 seconds have passed, slide the silver button back down and wah-la! You have gorgeous, heat-induced lashes.
Overall, this heated lash curler works amazingly well. The heat is the perfect temperature to give the lashes the extra added curl without damage. And, for those with stick straight lashes, this is definitely a miracle tool. However, the quality and the feel of the Mirenesse Cosmetics iCurl is rather flimsy and cheap. It is also rather bulky which makes it awkward to use. So, with this tool, definitely weigh the pros and cons. Are amazing eyelashes worth the awkwardness that comes with using a bulky instrument to curl your lashes? That’s a personal choice.
Emay Plus Air-Lash Heated Eyelash Curler

Overall, this heated eyelash curler is a big bag of mixed reviews. For some it works great and for others it doesn’t work at all. For us, it was Ok. We decided this heated eyelash curler was best used after we used a regular curler for extra insurance on our lashes. And this worked great, especially for those special nights out.
However, regardless of how bulky and awkward it is, our pick for best heated eyelash curler goes to Mirenesse Cosmetics iCurl.
