Are you searching for an amazing new eyelash curler? As a beauty editor, I have tried a lot of different versions. Some look like an ice-cream scoop, others look like little tweezers and there are also a few which look like they are part of my gynecologist’s office.

Plenty of these lash curlers appear to be different. Yet, in the end, all of them have one thing in common. They really hurt! Some experiences in lash-curling have been very painful which provoked me to get rid of this important step from my beauty routine. But as any fantastic makeup artist will tell you, lash-curling is a simple way of taking the years off from your face and make one appear awake instantly.

Hence, I was excited to discover a lash curler which will not only work but will also be easy to use. It comes to America as a gift from my French friend, Laura Mercier who is a celebrity makeup artist. Known as the Lift and Curl, this tiny beauty tool is a piece larger than a quarter. It is perfectly shaped to fit over the line of your lash. Simply rest your lashes on the cushiony pad and then push down gently on the little lever. Risk of a painful mistake is little.

The compact curler by Laura Mercier did well during our tests and was a phenomenon with consumers. According to a tester, her mother thought she was just wearing false lashes. Caveat: Getting used to the small size as well as the nontraditional design of the curler may take some time. (
