I have a love hate relationship with Canmake.
They have some really good items and some real duds XD
I rarely talk about the duds because i cant be bothered taking photos and writing about something that doesnt work.
That said, today’s item..is kind of a dud so you’ll notice the old tablecloth in the pictures [i have since changed it to a brown polka dot fabric] as i wasnt sure i was going to blog it but here it is anyway XD
Canmake Point Curler
RRP: 580yen [USD$8~]
What it promises to do [ganked from their website]
“Perfectly curls those hard-to-curl lashes at the inner and outer edges of your upper lids, as well as your lower lashes, just the way you want! A partial curler that achieves pinpoint curls without tangling your lashes.”
– can double as an aid [tweezers] to apply fake eyelashes
– curls/reaches the hard to reach corner lashes or lower lashes
– good with curling corner falsies or certain droopy parts of falsies [droopy makes it look extra fake..i feel]
– will NEVER replace a proper eyelash curler, so do you really want to carry something extra?
-does not curl as much as crimp your lashes
Originally i picked this up as the “point curler” i had from KAI is kinda hard to use. Imagine a normal crimper style eyelash curler but half the width. So when i spotted this in the store, i thought ok, i’ll give this a go. A little known [or maybe its known XD] secret about me, i dont actually wear mascara daily hahahah I wear falsies daily though. I find wearing falsies a lot quicker than putting mascara on. So i use a point curler to make sure the falsies dont droop [since no mascara lifting eyelashes to support them] and i use it to crimp eyelashes that are too droopy and separated from the falsies [another reason why some people have extra fake looking falsies cos they apply it too far from the lash line] So in that sense, yes it works. It works heaps better than the KAI point curler i have and far easier too. But it still doesnt curl as well as i would like. And like i mentioned previously, it doubles as falsies wearing aid XD I dont use any tweezers etc to wear falsies but i always use tweezers to remove them from the packet. [so u dont damage them] and it makes putting the glue on a breeze!
Bottom line: if you are weird like me and need something for the same reasons , buy it XD
Its one more week to Christmas!
