MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Do you have eyelash envy? Longing for that perfect curl? The Wonder Curler eyelash curler claims to do just that! But Does It Work?

Cary Davis is an esthetician who knows her way around an eye -- the perfect person to give us the 411 on eyelashes!

"I think it is beneficial to curl the eyelash," she said. "It helps with the definition between your eyeshadow and your eyelashes."

Cary normally uses a traditional eyelash curler, but hopes the heated one would make the curl last longer and "be able to see the curl in the lash."

The Wonder Curler heated eyelash curler comes with the curler itself and instructions. It runs on two AAA batteries, but they weren't included, so we bought them separately.

It's temperature sensitive and uses "a silicon pad that changes color when its ready to use."

Cary removed the back part of the curler and inserted the 2 AAA batteries. It heated up in no time, with the silicon pad changing from red to clear when it was ready.

Jennifer Bradley, a spa coordinator, agreed to let Cary test the Wonder Curler on her stubborn straight eyelashes.

"I hope it gives it a more fuller long lasting curl," she said.

We started off with the traditional eyelash curler on the left eye. Cary applied mascara and pressed down for about 15 to 20 seconds.

We moved to the right eye, using the heated curler.  Cary again pressed down for about 15 to 20 seconds.

We applied mascara to the right eye to finish the look, but unfortunately, no curl.

"It barely bent the eyelashes!"

Wonder Curler, you failed the Does It Work test!

We contacted the maker of WonderCurler , but we have yet to hear back.
