Askmewhats Reviews: ModelCo Lash Wand Heated Eyelash Curler

Of all the people who complain about "invisible" lashes, I for one, am the laziest person when it comes to lash products! I am not consistent in using mascara and let's not even get to lash curling!

That's why I'm surprised why I'm even interested to purchase any lash products!!! I thought Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler is enough for me, but when I saw the big SALE sign, the "Queen of Good Buys" have to take a second look!

A sure way to deliver the latest ‘look’, now you can bat your lashes with the best of them with new LASH WAND. LASH WAND'S improved superior heating mechanism will transform even the shortest of lashes into perfectly curled, wide-eyed wonders in a matter of seconds.

Simply apply a coat of your favorite mascara, turn LASH WAND on and gently fold you lashes back. Hold in place for 15 seconds and then remove to reveal the ultimate eyelash curl. LASH WAND won’t overheat even on the highest temperature setting and its battery powered so you can use it anywhere, anytime, to ensure you always look eye-catching!

So say goodbye to your outdated manual eyelash curlers! LASH WAND'S advanced technology and superior heating mechanism ensures your eyes will never by fry. Light and compact in size, no bigger than a mascara in fact, LASH WAND is a must-have for every beauty pinched or burnt again by blow-dry junkie’s handbag.

Pros

  • does curl my lashes
  • the heat is just right, does not hurt my eyes or the skin around my eyes
  • to those who likes to blowdry their eyelash curler, saves time and overheating accidents!

Cons

  • pricey if discount is not considered
  • good at curling but it tends to clump my lashes all together
  • battery operated: Not environmental friendly
  • the curl on traditional lash curlers last longer than this
Overall

If you can curl your lashes with eyelash curler, you don't NEED to get this product. This is a nice product to have but it's not required. Blowdrying your eyelash curler for a couple of seconds works just as fine as using a heated lash curler!

Tips (from site)

  • Requires 1 x AAA 1.5V alkaline battery, I suggest you purchase rechargeable batteries, cheaper in the long run
  • apply mascara first before heating the lashes
  • turn on the lash wand, wait for a minute, wait for the dark blue sensor coil to turn whitish, indicating the optimum temperature
  • place lash wand at the root of lashes and press gently, holding for approximately 10 seconds
  • may need to repeat steps as it depends on the thickness of your lashes
  • clean the lash wand with the brush provided to prevent mascara build up, and nothing can be more turn off than dirty tools!
  • if you don't plan to use this daily, I suggest not to leave the battery inside
Will I repurchase?

No, I am lazy to use an eyelash curler, and now a heated eyelash curler???? What am I thinking???? lol Oh yeah, it was the 45% off!

Where can you purchase and how much?

At Beauty Bar for PHp1,650 (approx $35.00)
got it on sale for Php907.50 <--- 45% off!!!! (approx $19.00)

Gadget beauty? or Traditional Beauty? Do you think my lashes are curled nicely or a regular eyelash curler can do the trick? I think I know the answer, but it's always nice to read your thoughts! I don't feel that bad because like I said, I bought it on SALE! :)

Keep smilin'
Stay Happy!

  1. Thanks for the review, Nikki! I have the Panasonic one, and I do notice a little difference when I use it and not. But the difference to your lashes is hardly noticeable I think...

  7. The Home Spa Goddess , thank you so much on wishing my mom well! I do appreciate it! It has been some time, how have you been?

    Sherry,it was tough for me to use at first too! I am scared to burn myself, but after several usage, it's really convenient, but the curl ain't too obvious, I guess because of my short lashes!

  8. errrr i think normal curler will do the same job for u nikki :P

    i am also not a mascara person, my lashes are just too saddening. so..falsies ftw!!!

  9. You are so right, Nikki. As much as I have wanted to purchase one for the longest time, I know my trusty old lash curler and mascara can perform just as good, if not better, than these heated lash curlers.

  10. I also have an electric curler, but didn't see much of a difference, so I'm back to traditional curlers & mascaras. And even on sale, it's still pricey compared to its results. Thanks for the review, Nikki =)

  11. Thanks for the review Nikki!! I've been thinking about buying a heated curler from Panasonic, but it seems like some of you says that a curler does the same thing too... hmm...

  12. you got it on sale?! wow! that's a nice gadget to try..

    ReplyDelete
  13. awww..
    i so wanted to buy one too..
    i was checking out ebay for it since most asian lashes are really short i figured that heated lash curlers would do wonders for it sounds so amazing..

    but i think i'll just stick to my regular curler & 'heat' it too with a blow dryer!

    ^_^

  14. I think the regular curling will do na. :) I'm not a fan of this kind of gadget too. Basta you have a very good mascara the curl will last naman

  17. I just had to read this review. I was planning on getting a heated lash curler..but I guess a regular curler will do just fine. Hehe! Nice review! I love your blog reviews!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I like heat eye lash curler too, but it needs too much battery :(

    ReplyDelete
  19. prettybeautiful , you are right sister! I agree! :) And I agree with you again that falsies give out the best effect for our lashes :D

    Tish, hey, I'm glad you agree with me :) But don't get me wrong, I think this works for those who are blessed with longer lashes, as the effect will be huge!

    neurochiq, true, i can purchase a Shu Uemura lash curler with the price! :) But it's nice to finally tried this!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Jenn, I think the Panasonic one is quite famous! :) I've been wanting that too but I can't seem to find it here!
