Lilly Lashes is a false lash brand created by Amercian Instagram star, Lilly Ghalichi. I’ve never tried any of the Lilly Lashes before, but I have been on somewhat of a quest looking for the *perfect* eyelash curler – if it even exists?! I’ve tried so many different lash curlers but my lashes are very uncooperative and straight, so they barely curl so in all honesty it feels like a pointless step within my makeup routine.
However I’ve seen how effective lash curlers can be on other people so I’ve been trying to find a curler which works for my lashes. I’ve tried lash curlers from Shu Uemura, Tweezerman, Tarte, Japonesque, B, Eyeko, and more but I’m still yet to find a curler which wows me. I’d read a few rave reviews on the Lilly Lashes Fabu-Lash Eyelash Curler, and I decided to give it a try and for £16, I thought it was quite reasonably priced too.
I ordered my Lilly Lashes Fabu-Lash Eyelash Curler from Cult Beauty and there are two colour ways to choose from; Rose Gold and Gold. I chose the rose gold version as I can’t resist anything rose gold, and the “Glam Gold” colour looked a little too yellow for my liking, but I love that there’s a choice of colour. Something else I love is that the lash curler is £16 in the UK and $15.99 in the US, so Lilly Lashes didn’t inflate the price for the UK market like many brands do.
“Definitely a makeup bag essential, the Lilly Lashes Eyelash Curler is a fool-proof device that achieves an enviable lash look. Complete with matte black silicone pads, and a soft touch handle, this must have Rose Gold tool delivers an effortless perfect curl.“
Comes in Rose Gold & Glam Gold
Rounded silicone pad

The mention of “foolproof” had me sold on the Lilly Lashes Fabu-Lash Eyelash Curler, as I am a nervous wreck when using lash curlers after seeing an Instagram friend had pulled out all of her lashes along her top lashline after being knocked when using curlers. I’m always very careful when using lashlines but the matte, large grip covers on the handles really appealed to me, as so many lash curlers don’t have that grip and I now won’t use lash curlers unless they have them, as the shiny metal is so easy to slip in the hand during use.
I have really shaky hands at the best of time, but the matte rubberised grips on the Lilly Lashes Fabu-Lash Eyelash Curler really help me to hold the curler in place without any moving and they’re the best grips I’ve found on a curler, with the Tarte lash curler coming a close second.
One of the reasons this lash curler appealed to me the most, was a combination of how many positive reviews there are on the Lilly Lashes website – and they’re verified buyers so they’re not fabricated reviews like some companies do (*ahem* Sunday Riley). The other reason was the shape of the curler as I have almond shaped eyes, and some lash curlers really pinch the skin which let me tell you, hurts like no other but there’s no pinching at all with the Lilly Lashes Fabu-Lash Eyelash Curler and it catches every lash even my tiny inner corner lashes.
The curler isn’t a miracle worker and magically makes my lashes look amazing, as my natural lashes are pathetic, short and straight. It does however add curl to my lashes which lasts providing I apply mascara straight after. I’ve tried many lash curlers and I have to say, the Lilly Lashes Fabu-Lash Eyelash Curler is my favourite I’ve tried and the handle grips make curling my lashes a lot less nerve wracking which makes it a winner in my books.
I’d love to know which lash curler is your favourite?
