If there’s one beauty trick that I swear by that’s an instant picker upper, it’s curling my lashes. More than putting on mascara, curling the lashes instantly opens up the eyes for a brighter, livelier look.

An eyelash curler is a must have in my beauty kit, and I’ve only used the simple one since forever, so I’m excited to try this electronic one from Panasonic Beauty.

For this review, I’m testing out the Panasonic EH-SE60 VP Eyelash Curler. It retails for Php 1,499, and is available in all Panasonic Beauty distributors nationwide.

Product Details:

  • Panasonic electric eyelash curler comfortably and beautifully curls lashes in seconds with gentle, evenly applied heat along the entire length of the lash.
  • 360° rotating, reversible eyelash curler comb separates, curls and styles lashes from base to tip without pinching or crimping.
  • Sleek, contoured heated electric eyelash curler uses a wand-style design to fit naturally in either hand for maximum comfort and ease of use.
  • Versatile and convenient heated eyelash curler styles and beautifies with or without mascara for the results you want; Detachable comb washes easily.
  • Compact, portable heated lash curler design and cap fit neatly into purse, bag or makeup case for quick, easy touch-ups away from home; Powered with 1 AA-size battery (not included).
  • Works with false lashes too!

The Panasonic Eyelash Curler comes with a cleaning brush for the wand. It’s operated with one AA battery (not included in package), and includes one pocket sized manual.

The eyelash curler is separated into these parts:

  • Heater cover
  • rotating comb
  • power switch [0,1]
    / rotation switch 
  • battery cover
  • ready mark

Using the eyelash curler

  1. Remove protective cap
  2. Slide the power switch to the “1“ position to turn the device on. The heater will turn on as well
  3. Check that the ready mark has changed from purple to pink. This will take 1 or 2 minutes when the room temperature in 25 degrees.
  4. Apply commercially available mascara (yes you can use mascara before or after using the device)
  5. Touch the rotating comb against your eyelashes and press the rotation switch to curl. Tip: moving the rotating comb slowly will make it easier to form curls.
  6. Slide the power switch to the “0“ position to turn the device off.
  7. Attach the protective cap
  8. Apply mascara to finish.

Forming Curls:

Natural Curls:

  1. Make the lashes stand up at their base.
  2. Create the shape by pressing up on the rotation switch
  3. Curl the tips of the lashes by pressing up on the rotation switch.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 several times.

Strong Curls:

  1. Make the lashes stand up at their base.
  2. Create the shape by pressing down on the rotation switch
  3. Curl the tips of the lashes by pressing down on the rotation switch.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 several times.

Lower lashes:

  1. Push the lashes lightly to create a curl
  2. Form the shape by pressing down on the rotation switch.

Tips:

  • To emphasize width of eyes – lift the eyelashes at the outer corners of the eye, then angle the rotating comb and touch the eylashes at that outer corner, moving the comb towards the outer end of the eyebrow to curl
  • To make the inner corner of the eyes look wider – angle the rotating comb and move it towards the inner end of the eyebrow
  • To entangle lashes – move the rotating comb with a zigzag motion to entangle the base of the lashes
  • To make lower lashes look fuller – hold the rotating comb vertically and move it from the outer corner to the center of the eye. move the device without using rotation.
  • Angle of Face while in use – use while looking slightly downward, place a mirror in front of you and raise your chin.

Mascara to be used as a base (before using the heated curler):

  • waterproof type (long, volume, curl)
  • long type
  • curl type

Mascara appropriate for finishing touch:

  • Volume type

Thoughts:

  • The device is a bit tricky to use on your first time, but it gets easier as you go along
  • Is it easier to use than a regular curler? Not too much, but the performance and curl you get from this one is long lasting and more natural looking
  • I did this at 7am, and the curl lasted until 11pm right before I had to make my makeup off for bedtime. Definitely longer lasting than with the usual curler.
  • The heated comb prevents harsh bends when you curl, so the result is a softer, natural look that looks effortless
  • All in all, I liked the effect, making this curler a new staple in my beauty kit.

Tadaaa! I didn’t put any mascara on so you guys can see the full effect of curled lashes. What do you think? Hit me up if you have any more questions on this product. Until the next post, toodles!
