REVIEW: Panasonic Heated Eyelash Curler (EH 2351AC)

Usually my ride-or-die eyelash curler is the cult-favorite Shu Uemura eyelash curler that can be found here. I'll have a review for you guys up pronto! With a price tag of $20, it's pretty expensive for an eyelash curler, so I'm always on the market for a cheaper alternative. I recently heard about the Panasonic Heated Eyelash Curler (EH 2351AC) from a friend who was in love with it and I just had to go out and purchase it right away! A thing about me is that I absolutely LOVE trying out new beauty and makeup products, so of course I couldn't resist trying out a heated eyelash curler for the first time!


I went out and picked up the blue heated curler with the heated comb. I saw that there was a newer version available that has a rotating head and I would LOVE to try it out sometime, but you can find that version here. The heated eyelash curler (EH 2351AC) came with a blue sparkly cap which I really liked because you can bring this curler with you everywhere you go for quick touch-ups or for traveling. The packaging claims that the heated comb will give a natural, long-lasting curl and I'm totally down for that. It states that it's quick and easy, combs curls and separates each lash perfectly, it's pain-free, and that the result is thicker natural looking curled lashes in just seconds... I'M SOLD.

The price of the Panasonic curler was $10, and that was relatively cheap, but I didn't know if I should've been spending that much on a curler I didn't know would work or not. Also, the packaging felt like cheap plastic and it definitely wasn't durable.


The Panasonic Heated Eyelash Curler (EH 2351AC) runs on one AA battery and has a heat indicator on the back of the head that turns from purple to pink when it is ready for use. This heated eyelash curler only has one heat setting, which can be a bad thing. For some people who have sensitive eye areas, the heat might be too hot and one might accidentally burn themselves. Personally, I never burned myself, but I could definitely feel the heat emitting from the curler. 

The curler states that it can be used before AND after mascara, but whenever I used it AFTER applying mascara, I found that it just melted ALL of my mascara off (what a waste)!

The heated curler also claims that it will "lock curl into place for a long-lasting look." I found that that was not true, for me at least. For reference, I have naturally stick straight eyelashes and it was very difficult for me to achieve a curl on my lashes with this product. The heated comb would lift my lashes a bit (not much) and that so-called "curl" wouldn't even last for more than an hour. Using this heated eyelash curler is very time-consuming and I found that I was better off using any mechanical eyelash curler. 


Portable and travel-friendly
Great for a quick touch-up


Melts off mascara if used AFTER applying
Doesn't hold curl before or after mascara
"Curl" is not long lasting
Time consuming

RATING: 1/5 

I would NOT purchase the Panasonic Heated Eyelash Curler (EH 2351AC) again nor would I recommend it. I thought it was a waste of money, but I really liked the concept of it and would love to try a heated eyelash curler that actually works on me!

If you would like to give this a try, the Panasonic Heated Eyelash Curler (EH 2351AC) is available HERE!

What's your favorite eyelash curler to use?


  1. I've always wanted to try one of these things, but I've never had the courage. Just the idea of putting a heated object that close to my eyes scares the ever loving hell out of me. I already stab myself in the eye with a mascara wand at least once a month. I dread accidents with that contraption.

    I think they should have more heating settings. It's nice to have more control rather than just on and go. I've gotten rid of flat irons because of that.

    1. Vonnie, I was so scared too! Haha, but my friend raved about it and she also has naturally straight lashes like me, so I guess it sort of depends on the person. We both agree that it's VERY time consuming and I personally think you'd be way better off (and safer) with a mechanical curler!
