YOSO Heated Eyelash Curler


Just before Christmas The Beauty Crowd was kind enough to send me the YOSO heated eyelash curler to try. Now I don't know about you, but I have zillions of pairs of eyelash curlers only for them to go blunt, not work or do a job which could be considered alright. I always have a pair in my main makeup bag, but never carry a pair around with me as they are quite bulky, but, when I saw this product, I was quite intrigued not only by its size but if it was in fact amazing, I could carry it around with me.



The YOSO Heated Eyelash Curler costs just £15.99 to purchase and before I go any further with this review, I am going to say that they are worth every penny! I have loved using them and here is why. Whilst being battery operated, the gold wand is slim and lightweight to hold not to mention easy to use. It is accompanied by an extensive instruction manual which details evrything you need to know about your eyelash curler. There are three parts to this curler. One side of the wand features a comb and the opposote side is the heater, then on too of the wand is a smaller heater which is designed to get to those hard to reach lashes in the corner of your eyes. All these parts working together to give you fluttering eyelashes.


YOSO say: This heated eyelash curler creates a dramatic uplift and a long lasting curl for your lashes. The main heater allows lashes to be swept up and curled, whilst the unique small point heater tackles the tricky corner lashes for maximised dramatic volume. Finish the look by combing through to add precise definition. The compact and slim design makes this beauty pen a suitable addition to any make-up bag and also features a handy heat indicator, letting you know when the pen is ready to use. The YOSO LASHES will ensure your eyelashes stay defined and curled for longer than usual; perfect for your special night out or simply to keep you looking bright eyed through a busy day.









Once you have set up your wand, it takes around a minute to heat up and at the top of the wand there is a purple spot which changes colour to alert you to the fact it is ready to use and if you are holding the wand in your hand, you should feel it become slightly warm, obviously as it going to go near your eye, we are not talking GHD temperatures. 

So, once it is warm the instructions tell you to use the comb as close as you can to the roots of your lashes for around 3 seconds and turn it 90 degrees outwards, now I was never any good at maths, but I use the wand by using the comb side first to brush my lashes, then as I turn the comb over to the heated side, rather than dwell on the 90 degrees, turn it slightly at a right angle so I it feels as though I am lifting my lashes, hold it for a few seconds and then move to my other eye.



It takes 4-5 minutes the first time you use it and then with a bit of practice and a lot less faffing (a subject I excel at) you can be done in a couple of minutes. I personally think it takes the same amount of time to use as it does a normal eyelash curler once heated up and for me it does a far better job and poses less of a risk of ripping or cutting off your eyelashes, as I've read about some people doing.


Once you have finished using the eyelash curler, you should find that the results last pretty much all day and if you are going out in an evening because the wand is so lightweight, you can just repeat the process if you feel it is necessary. Naturally, my photos show results without adding mascara which is really where you can see the difference, I just ran the comb through my eyelashes once and then added some heat. This for me is the perfect little gadget, I am hopeless with false eyelashes and do find some of them quite creepy, I'm far too impatient to sit and attempt to stick things to my eyes, so this is a happy medium because I get the look that I want.

You can get your own from The Beauty Crowd and at only £15.99 and it is an absolute bargain.

  3. I'm one of those lucky people with eyelashes that are already curled so not something I would buy but U can see the benefits for those who regularly curl their eyelashes.

  16. I couldn't face attaching fake eyelashes either - this looks like a good way to get the look without the glue!
