Are Heated Eyelash Curlers the Next Big Thing?

Would You Try a Heated Eyelash Curler?(Source: Skincare by Alana, Nastia11/Thinkstock; Chella Heated Eyelash Curler, $20)When our eyelashes need a lift, we've always blasted our trusty Shu Uemura with a hairdryer and then curled away. This seemed like a pretty cool beauty hack—until the crop of new heated eyelash curlers made our trick seem positively old-fashioned. These high-tech contraptions, you see, have a built-in heat source that aims to amp up lash volume and create long-lasting curl.

First, there's the wand version, like Blinc's Heated Lash Curler ($24) and Chella's Heated Lash Curler ($20), which uses a triple-A battery to heat up a grooved styling brush. (To use, you simply brush your lashes in an upward motion until the desired curl is achieved.) There's also the clamp model, like these babies from Panasonic ($30) and Mally ($25), which feature a heated strip and works like a newfangled version of your traditional curler. 

Both styles promise va-va-voom lashes—and yes, feature safety measures so you won't scorch your delicate lashes. 

What do you think? Would you give one a whirl?
