This Folding Eyelash Curler by Seki Edge ($10) is great for those of us who like to travel light. This little plastic gadget folds up into a slender and compact curler that fits in the palm of your hand. Seki Edge is known for creating high-quality products at affordable prices, and this is no exception. (The company, which has a samurai-sword past, recently unveiled a very cool bikini tweezer.)
Better yet, the curler's super-soft silicone pad contains an anti-bacterial agent. I must say, I'm really digging this new anti-bacterial trend in makeup tools these days. The eyelash curler is also extremely easy to clean and closely securely with a snap-in lock.
