Japonesque Breast Cancer Awareness: Lovely Lashes

As someone who has experienced Breast Cancer within my family, I was happy when I was offered a product from the Breast Cancer Awareness range from Japonesque. Beauty has gone pink this month and for every item purchased from the pink collection, $1 will be donated to Breast Cancer Awareness Research. The range is available at HQHair.com and prices begin at £10.

I was sent the heated mini eyelash curler*. This little contraption comes with a battery and heats up within seconds. you just hold the curler comb under your lashes and gently lift, then hold in place until the desired curl is reached. The product has a lid and when closed, it looks around the same shape and size of a cigar. This means it slips easily into your handbag or makeup bag and can be taken anywhere!

I have to admit, it took a couple of tries before I got used to using the curler, as I am so used to using metal non-heated curlers on my lashes. this doesn't have the same clamp-like mechanism so you have to hold the curler at the right angle and brush it through your lashes slowly like a mascara wand. Unfortunately, I found this product didn't make a huge difference to my lashes and for now, I prefer using my metal lash curlers - but perhaps with a little more practise I could get used to these too. Japonesque offer a pink plastic version of the clamp-mechanism curlers also in this range, so grab one of those if the heated ones don't appeal to you!

Aside from the fact this product is pink (which appeals to my girly girl side) it also supports a fantastic cause, something which all women (and men!) should be aware of. The heated curler is priced at £12.50 and is available to buy online now.

*Product sent to me, but the review is my own and is 100% honest!
