I got a new lash curler while in Hong Kong. I saw it on a display at Log-On (City's Super) and it's supposed to be the newest curler by Koji. It was highly recommended by a Japanese magazine, I think Spring?? I got this for about $125HKD.
The curler that I used to use is the pink one with the spring inside. (picture from Adambeauty) For those of you who don't know, when you press the handles together, they pop back into place so you don't have to open it yourself. Seems kinda like the lazy way of curling lashes.
So what's special about these curlers? Nothing really for the old pink spring one that I used, the new one however, is supposed to have a new design to curl your lashes in a special way.
Before I tell you how the new Koji curler does its work, here's a comparison of both the curlers. You can see on the left side, the curler is not as rounded as the spring curler on the right. This alone sells it for me because the old curler didn't fit my eye properly, sometimes I nip my eyes. Ouch! With the old curler, I always had to curl my lashes before I did my eye makeup because it would smudge everything due to the poor fitting.
The new Koji curler fits my eye shape perfectly that I can curl my lashes after doing my eye makeup without smudging anything. But, the best part of the curler is the design.
Since I don't have a picture of the back of the Koji box I'll have to tell you why it's so good. If you look at most curlers, you'll see that the front of it is relatively straight across, but the new Koji curler isn't straight. Instead, the ends curve down allowing the curler to hold onto as many lashes as possible and curl them in a fan shape. It also doesn't smush all your lashes together and it kind of separates them as you curl. Do you get it? Haha, that's the best I can explain without the packaging. If you look at the picture, you can kinda see what I mean.
For me, this is a brillant curler because I'm able to curl more lashes than the old one, plus it fits my eye!
You can purchase this on Bobodave for $20USD.
If you speak Cantonese, watch this YT vid to see how the curler works.
