I couldn't live without mine - I have the manual ones and the best heated ones ever. Ruby and Millie sell them for £20 in Boots, but you can buy the same ones direct from Oakwood Remedies on the internet for £13. They are fab fab fab.
yes. but only because my mum had some and when i was a little girl i used spend hours playing with all the stuff at her dressing table (jewlerry, make-up etc). she in fact never used hers! I on the other hand went out and bought my own when i was about 18. DD says they're scissors and always screams at me in a very worried voice to be very careful mummy when i put make up and get to the eyelash curlers stage. I didn't know heated ones existed but i won't go and buy them.
I use them every day without fail, I look really weird/tired with straight eyelashes! I just use any old cheapo metal ones. I do find that "wet" mascaras ruin the effect though. My eyelashes curl really easily so heated ones make them go a bit crazy.
I use them when I wear mascara i.e. before going out, they really do the trick. Don't have heated ones though. I think mine are from the Body Shop..? And yes, I find it impossible to keep my mouth shut during the curling process!
