Chanel Precision Eyelash Curler for $34 at Nordstrom
I've been a little obsessed with watching the beauty videos by makeup artist Lisa Eldridge. I can't remember which one I saw exactly, but in one she demonstrated using a Chanel eyelash curler and mentioned how it was pretty comparable to Shu Uemura and Kevin Aucoin.
For a little beauty pick me up, I knew I had to have this eyelash curler in my makeup bag. I have been using a trusty Sephora one for 10+ years already. The Chanel one looked so chic and so different in black. I just loved the little white Chanel logo sitting in front. I decided that I might as well invest in a really good one for the next 10 years. (The things you tell yourself to justify your purchases, right?) Well yesterday afternoon, I found myself in a deep search. I went to a few locations within Union Square SF and most were sold out since I found out that these Chanel eyelash curlers are limited edition. When I finally hit the Chanel beauty counter at Nordstrom the SA said they had them in stock. Whee!
I tried them out when I got home and I loved how my eyelashes curled! Since the curler is black and my lashes are black, it takes a bit of concentration to do it because I couldn't really see my lashes. The curler just fits in all the right places without pinching so I just let go and trusted that it was curling my lashes, which it was. I didn't put on mascara after I curled them last night and to my surprise while looking in the mirror a few hours later before bed, my lashes still looked curled and cute! I couldn't believe it. This morning, I curled them again and wore them with my new Dior Show mascara. Without any primping in the day, my lash curl still looked pretty darn good tonight!
Nordstrom seems to be the only place you can buy the Chanel eyelash curlers online. On the product page you can enter in your zip code, to see if your local Nordstrom has it in stock as well.
