I will be retiring my trusty eyelash curler this week. We have been together, everyday, for the last probably 6 years or so. I can't even remember how long I have had it. It's just time to move on to different things. And the cushion part needs to be changed before it slices my eyelashes off. It's nothing special.... just a Maybelline curler from Target. That's totally what I am going to go buy again.
