Cosmopolitan Beauty Expert Maximum Effect Lash Curlers and FOTD!

Hey loves!

I hope you're all enjoying this very dismal Thursday! Anyone who follows me on Twitter will know that I am NOT a fan of this horrid weather!!! I want to go abroad now!

Until then...

Recently I have started using the Cosmopolitan Beauty Expert range (designed by the experts at Cosmopolitan mag) on my face and nails. You may remember a post I did recently where I reviewed a number of Cosmopolitan Beauty Expert items, including the acclaimed Blend Perfection Sponge and false nails. Well I was super impressed with the range and today I'll be reviewing their Maximum Effect Lash Curlers, as seen below.

OK so just a quickie about my relationship with eyelash curlers thus far... Not good! I own the infamous Shu Uemura lash curlers and I find they do not work for me AT ALL! So I was dubious about testing a new pair.
The Cosmopolitan ones look like your standard eyelash curlers, except they have a handy white grip handle (you never know how long you'll be holding those lashes for!)
Of course, it's emblazoned with the famous Cosmopolitan branding!

So here's a couple of pics to show my eyelashes before applying anything on them, after using the eyelash curlers and then finishing them off with mascara, etc.

As you can see, my eyelashes are practically NON EXISTENT! You'd like I'd have some kind of condition (which is no laughing matter) but I don't - I was just born with short, stumpy lashes *sigh*

After using Cosmopolitan Lash Curlers:
I held the lash curler in place for 30 secs on each eye and I found they made a MASSIVE difference! I think it looks really natural and it really elongates them.

After Cosmopolitan Lash Curlers and eye make-up:

I used my trusty CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume Mascara to add some volume to my thin lashes - they look 10x better than they did before! 

If you're looking to invest in a new pair of eyelash curlers, or you haven't tried them before, I would 100% recommend trying the Cosmopolitan Beauty Expert Maximum Effect Lash Curlers. They're a steal at £4.19 (much less than Shu Uemura!) and available at Superdrug.

 FOTD using Cosmopolitan Beauty Expert Maximum Effect Lash Curlers:
FACE: Aldi Lacura Shimmering Day Cream (applied with No7 Foundation Brush), Estee Lauder Doublewear Concealer, Estee Lauder Doublewear Light (applied with ELF Stippling Brush), MAC Mineralise Skinfinish Natural (applied with ELF Stippling Brush), Benefit Hoola Bronzer (applied with unbranded bronzing brush), MAC Fix+ to finish.

EYES: Cosmopolitan Eyelash Curlers, Urban Decay Primer Potion (Original), Soap and Glory SUPERCAT Felt Tip Liner on top lid, Avon Color Trend Kajal Stick on lower waterline, Sleek Storm Palette (taupe and matte brown shades), CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume Mascara. MAC Dirty Blonde Eyebrow Pencil and an old mascara wand to brush through brows.

LIPS: Carmex Original Lip Balm Pot to prime, Missguided Nude lipgloss.

Have you tried any of the Cosmopolitan Beauty Expert range before? What's your lash curlers of choice?

Let me know in the comments! :-)




These lash curlers were sent to me for review by Cosmopolitan but I am in no way affiliated with the brand and my opinion is 100% honest just like if I paid for the product myself.


  1. wow, that is quite the difference! :)

  2. Thanks hun! Yeah I know lol, I literally have no eyelashes!!! :-(
