I’ve used the Seki Edge Total Control Eyelash Curler for 15 years now. It’s an especially great tool for those with Asian features since the curve of the metal part that lays against your eye is much flatter than traditional metal eyelash curlers. It also has no side bars that will accidentally catch (or miss) your eyelashes. It’s also useful for those with small (as in a short width) eyes since you can target the edges of your lash line with it very easily.
When using the Seki Edge, the user places it in a position that lays perpendicular to her face, which means that there is no need to smash a metal curler up against your cheeks and upper eye lid. It’s extremely easy to use and to control the amount of curl you need.
One of my greatest annoyances with traditional curlers is their crazy shape and weird angles, which makes them such a pain to store. The Seki Edge conveniently closes relatively flat, which makes it incredibly easy to keep in even a small pocket of your makeup bag. The curler also comes with an extra rubber pad which conveniently stores inside the handle so you’ll never forget about it.
When I first started using makeup as a teenager, I had a lot of trouble using traditional curlers. I stopped in a local Ulta and spotted this curler there and purchased it (along with a ton of other various curling tools), and this one was the clear winner. Unfortunately, I don’t believe this curler is sold at Ulta any longer; I’ve only been able to find it on Amazon.
After almost 8 years of use, my original Seki Edge started pulling apart at the metal joint. I was amazed it even lasted that long, so I had no qualms buying another (although I do believe they come with some kind of lifetime warranty, which I had forgotten about). I dread the day when this curler will no longer be produced, which I’m afraid may come sooner than later. It seems harder and harder to find it. But I do have a couple extra on hand in case that happens!
