Tweezerman Professional Classic Lash Curler Review & Pictures

Tweezerman Lash Curler Review & PicturesI don’t wear mascara anymore, and I tend to wear dark eye looks a lot, so you might not realize that I have somewhat long lashes, but I do.

Each morning, I curl my eyelashes not only so they make me look more awake, but also so they don’t sweep the lenses of my glasses.

I’ve tried a few eyelash curlers, and my favourite is the Tweezerman Professional Classic Lash Curler.

A little while ago, I was in the market for a new good eyelash curler. I was ready to get the Shiseido one, but then I saw it only came with 1 refill pad. (You can get Shiseido replacement pads, but they’re around $6 each – rip-off!)ย So I ended up going back to my trusted favourite: Tweezerman!

It’s a bit of a pet peeve of mine. Every lash curler should come with several refills and/or additional refills should be sold for a reasonable price.

Oftentimes, I end up throwing out my curler (even though the device itself still works) just because the pad has worn away and there’s no replacement.

What I like about this Tweezerman lash curler is that it comes with 4 pads, costs a little over $10 CAD, and the curve fits the shape of my eyes perfectly.

Tweezerman Professional Classic Lash Curler Review

Eyelash Curler

Above all else, the most important thing when shopping for an eyelash curler is the device itself and the curve of the curler. If you get one that’s meant for almond-shaped eyes and your eyes are round, you’ll probably find out the hard way that it pinches your skin! (It’s happened to me – owww!)

I have really curvy eyes, so I need a curler with a really pronounced curve. The Tweezerman is perfect – it has never pinched me. Even when I’m not paying too much attention and curling my lashes, it has never pinched me! That’s how I know it’s the perfect fit.

I’ve tried some before that pinched my eyelid no matter how carefully I used the curler. That’s no good, and it can be incredibly painful if you’ve clamped down pretty hard.

Most curlers come in packages, so oftentimes you can’t test whether or not they’ll fit the curvature of your eye. Sometimes you just have to find out what works for you through trial and error.

You also need to take into account the length of your lashes. If you have short lashes, I’m not sure if this will work as well for you.


This Tweezerman classic lash curler comes with standard no-nonsense metal handles.

You’ll want to make sure that you can easily slip your fingers through the handle holes. If possible, I recommend ones with padding – those are so comfortable. Unfortunately, this Tweezerman one doesn’t have it.

Also, I recommend the curlers with grip holes instead of the handles without the holes. I’ve tried both, and I’ve found that without the little holes, it’s a bit clumsy. You have more control with the hole-type handles.

Silicone Pad

The Tweezerman eyelash curler comes with 4 silicone pads, which is a huge selling point for me. This means that I can use the same device for longer before I have to chuck the whole thing in the garbage.

I particularly like the silicone pads that come with this curler because the part you rest your eyelash on is curved. This makes a big difference compared to pads that are flat or that aren’t as firm as these. I find that Tweezerman’s pads did give me intense curls with minimal effort, and they didn’t give me weirdly creased lashes.

Edit: I found out that replacement pads are sold separately for this curler!

How I Curl My Lashes

It takes some practice if you’re new to the game, but after a few tries, it’ll come easy to you.

With your fingers in the holes, open up the curler as wide as it can go. Place your lashes on the pad with the curler as close to your lash line as possible. Clamp down firmly and hold for a few seconds. (Some people like to do a pumping action.) Then repeat, but bring the curler up halfway and then clamp down. Repeat, but bring the curler toward the tips of your lashes and then clamp down.

Lifetime Guarantee

The Tweezerman lash curler comes with a lifetime guarantee. They say: “We repair or replace tools with manufacturing defects FREE.” You just have to send the implement insured in a padded mailer with your information and allow for 4 weeks.

I find this guarantee pointless because it’s just for manufacturing defects. If you get a lemon, most people will just exchange it at the store they bought it from instead of paying for the shipping and insurance…and then the inconvenience of waiting.


  • Inexpensive
  • Easy to find & use
  • Comes with 4 silicone pads

  • No separate silicone pads sold (as far as I know), so eventually, you’ll have to throw it away & buy a new curler

Final Verdict: 9.5/10

What is an excellent eyelash curler for one person could be the worst for another – we all have different eye shapes. But for me, Tweezerman hit a home run in terms of quality, price, and accessibility. Naturally, I gave it a high score. I only deducted half a point because I haven’t seen them sell individual silicone pads. I’d rather just buy the refills instead of a whole new curler.

Do you also think they should sell individual replacement pads? Or does it not bother you? Which curler have you tried in the past? And which is your favourite curler?

    I don’t use a regular eye lash curler I think they are torture devices (exaggeration much) but I use a heated eyelash curler – It’s incredible easy to use on all types of eyelashes, it doesn’t hurt and you only need to replace a battery now and then. When you use it the first time it can be a bit weird because you will notice a warmth on your eyelashes but it doesn’t hurt at all also as bonus the eyelashes keep the curl better and you can control how much your curl them too. I’m not exactly sure where you can get it them but I think in like sites/stores who sell professional beauty tools it would be easy to find.
    I got them from my teacher and I paid about 15 euro’s for it or a little less so I think that if you find that you regularly bin your curler a heated eyelash curler could be the solution – especially for that low price.

    My regular eyelash curler ( that i don’t use anymore) came from a drugstore and was pretty cheap – I do think for more expensive curlers there should be replacement pads.

      Hey Elyne!

      Heated eyelash curlers always scare me, which is why I’ve never tried any. I’m so scared that I’m going to burn my eyeball by accident. ๐Ÿ˜›

      It’s good to know that you’ve found something that works really well for you and that keeps a curl much better than an average lash curler.

    I don’t curl my eyelashes so I don’t know what to say. My friend has this and she’s always bragging about how good this is. One day when I do curl my eyelashes I’ll get this.

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey maddy!

      Not everyone even needs to curl their lashes. I’ve seen some people with naturally curly lashes – sooooo pretty! Mine are really straight naturally, and because I wear glasses, it’s really annoying when they brush against my lens, so I really need to curl them. (I’ve even had my frames adjusted to compensate for my lash length, but they took it out as far as the frames will go and my lashes STILL touch! The only way for me not to get annoyed is to curl those suckers! :P)

  3. PinkGlitter

    I always end up pinching myself so I’ve given up on eyelash curlers. The new Urban Decay curler seems promising but I’m not sure I want to pay the twenty or so dollars for it. I didn’t even think to check if they sell replacement pads with it. Good thing I read your review in case I decide to purchase the UD in the future.

      Hey PinkGlitter!

      OWW! I know how painful it can be when you accidentally pinch your eyelids. Not fun! Have you tried curlers with different curvatures? In the past, I’ve found that Revlon pinched me really badly no matter how careful I was. Tweezerman is better for round, curvy eyes. And I heard that Shiseido is better for those with eyes that aren’t as curvy.

      I’ve been curious about the one from Urban Decay because it has an “open cage”. But, like you, I was iffy about plunking down so much to try it out.

    Great post, Mary! I’m still shopping around for a good eyelash curler that doesn’t pinch my lids. I used to buy the drugstore brands (Revlon, etc) but they all pinch horribly and never get the outer corner lashes. I decided to try the Sephora one and it’s just as bad. I’ve had it for a couple years now and it’s gotten wobbly (something’s loose somewhere but I don’t know where so the part where you hold it aren’t aligned anymore) so it needs some replacing soonish. I’m all but ready to shell out for the Shu Uemura one (altho I’ve heard it’s gotten discontinued and might be hard to find, ohno!), but I may have to give your Tweezerman a go first. It’s gotten so bad that I’ve also tried using a spoon, and you know what? The spoon works! No pinching and I can get to my outer corner lashes just fine. But it takes forever (especially since I’m a novice to it) so curlers are still a must when I’m in a rush.

      Hey Carmela!

      Hmm…I think that a lot of drugstore brands have a more enhanced cage curvature than the Shu Uemura and the Shiseido. Supposedly those last 2 are made more for Asian eyes (even though lots of non-Asians found that it works wonders for them). And, the Tweezerman curler isn’t made specifically for Asian eyes, but it suits mine the best. ๐Ÿ˜›

      It takes a lot of trial and error to find one that works. Many years ago, I used Maybelline and it worked well. But I think that while Revlon had the perfect curvature for me, somehow it always pinched my skin no matter how careful I was. I also tried a Quo curler – that was garbage. It didn’t pinch, but it didn’t curl well, either, and the metal felt flimsy.

      Hahaha…you’ve tried a SPOON? Hehe, I’ve never even thought to try that. I’m surprised it works. Knowing me, if I used a spoon, I’d jab my eye by mistake.

      1. Carmela

        Well, I have Asian eyes which is why I’ve been mulling it over. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s pretty pricey for an eyelash curler though..that’s really the only thing holding me back.

        Hahaha, I know a spoon seems bizarre but it’s so easy to get the lashes to curl in the direction I want them to AND to get the best curl out of the outer lashes. It just takes a TON of patience and some eye poking at the start. ๐Ÿ˜€

          I’m really curious about if the Shu lives up to the hype, so if you get it please let me know what you think of it! (I’ll probably just stick to Tweezerman, though, since it’s affordable, easy to find, and works well for me.)

          How did you learn how to use the spoons? How do you do it? I’ve never heard of it before. Did you just decide to try it one day?

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Jennifer!

      Over time, the silicone pad gets worn and the area where you clamp down with the curler will get indented more and more. You’ll notice over time that the curl you get from the same pad isn’t as intense as when you first started using it. That’s why you need to replace the pads after several months or so. But, hey, if you’re happy with the curl that you’re getting even now, then that’s great! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh man you are so lucky! Wish I had such long lashes I had to curl them to keep them from hitting my glasses haha ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I used to wear mascara a lot but it’s been eyeliner only ever since I got a new curler, it pinches like crazy. I’ll try this one out next time!

    i cannot imagine a life without mascara and an eyelash curler! i tend towards heavier/more dramatic eyes so you can see them behind my glasses. i’ve had a shu uemura curler for close to ten years now and the pad needs replacing something awful. perhaps i’ll just pick up one of these? thanks for the review!

      Hey rae!

      Holy smokes – 10 years you say? You got AMAZING use out of it if you only need to replace the pad now. WOW! I wonder if their silicone pad is more durable than the typical one?

    1. Mary Post author

      Hey Emily!

      It’s GOOD that you don’t have your curl your lashes – it’s one less step to do in the morning! But when my lashes hit my glasses, it really annoys me when it’s a constant thing, so I must curl them…or I get cranky.

      No, I haven’t tried the one from Elf. $1 is quite a deal if it works well.

  7. Kee

    I saw this last week at Rexall and I wanted to try it out. Then I remembered the exorbitant price I paid for my Shu Uemura curler and put it back LOL!! Don’t get me wrong though, I love me my Shu!!

    As for the spoon, I actually tried it and it works!!! It just takes up more time, so I don’t get to do it as often. But the curl you get from it is very nice and natural. Just take the spoon facing downwards and put your lashes between the spoon and your thumb. Some people just press the spoon, some people press and run the spoon over their lashes. It’s kinda like when you curl a ribbon using scissors.

      Hey Kee!

      Oohhh, I get it – so THAT’S how you use a spoon to curl your lashes. Haha, I still think I’d accidentally poke my eyes with the spoon because I’m (sometimes) clumsy like that. And I can picture people asking, “How did you hurt your eye?” Me: “I was using a spoon to curl my lashes.” People: “We can’t help her.” *Walks away from nutcase* ๐Ÿ˜›

      Where did you get your Shu Uemura curler from?

        1. Mary Post author

          Hey Kee!

          Hehe, that’s funny about the retweet! Now everyone knows to keep their spoons under lock and key around Kee! ๐Ÿ˜›

          Oh, I had no idea that Pacific Mall sold it.
