Review & Usage
MAC Half Lash Curler is a life saver. Or should I say a lash saver. :D According to MAC, the Half Lash Curler was “designed to lift and curl the shorter, more inaccessible lashes at the inner corner of the eye” but I also think it works with the outer corner lashes, too! In fact, it was this very reason that I bought the curler. I am currently using the Chanel Precision Eyelash Curler. It curls the inner and middle sections of my lashes perfectly but the outer lashes — not so much. I have yet to find that one perfect curler that can grab all my lashes in one go. Until then, I will continue to curl my lashes with the Chanel curler and MAC Half Lash curler. :)
This tool is meant to curl lashes in sections. You may use it alone or in addition to your current curler (faster). Due to its smaller size, it allows you to reach the root of the lashes more effectively than a full-sized curler. The handles are easy to hold and feel comfortable in hand. The silicone pad is soft but firm. The curler also comes with an extra refill pad.
I wish the sidebars of the curler were a bit thinner, though. Being thick, they tend to block the view during curling and there have been times where my lashes ended up being “crimped” instead of “curled” because I couldn't see what I was doing. The sidebar-free would be an improvement in my opinion! :)
The Half Lash Curler is a great tool for those who:
- have flat eyes where most curlers are too curved to fit the contour of the eyes
- have deep set eyes where most curlers couldn't reach the eyes without touching the brow bone
- have small eyes where most curlers are too wide to fit the eye area
- have hooded lids where regular-sized curlers do not reach the root of the lashes properly
Similar to the MAC Half Lash Curler are the Shu Uemura 6♥Princess Heart and Flower by Murakami S Curler (review) and the Mini Curler (see comparison). The S Curler is sidebar-free. The Mini Curler is half the size of the MAC Half Lash Curler, or about a third of a regular curler, which offers even more curling precision.
