Review: Shu Uemura Eye Lash Curler


BEHOLD: The Holy Grail of all Eyelash Curlers...
The SHU UEMURA EYELASH CURLER ($18)

First of all, I'd like to say that I have a bit of an obsession with eyelash curling. At 10 o'clock at night, peek into my house. I'm sitting on the sofa curling my lashes with not one, but 2 curlers. Since I've lived with numerous people over the years (all male), I've gotten my fair share of teasing. "God forbid Kyle's eyelashes aren't curly enough...", "The world ends if Kyle doesn't have her eyelash curlers or tweezers" OK, fine, I get it. But I have to say that most of my friends don't relish the fact that their eyelashes naturally curl up- not down. And that's something I'd pay lots of money to have occur naturally.

The new, Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler is perfectly measured and finely balanced. The upgraded silicone pad is in a "mushroom" shape to provide a protective, stay-put edge for improved safety and optimum curl. The new patented hinge is specifically engineered to apply the perfect amount of pressure to your delicate lashes. The calculated size, shape, frame length and ergonomic handles ensure stability and control, while the curved angle suits all eye shapes. The problem with my other eyelash curlers is that they were too deep set- and constantly poking me in the corners of my eyes. This one seems flatter, shallower, so I can really grab every single lash at the inside and outside corners.

At first, I was a little bit in awe. So this is it? Seems like a pretty typical eyelash curler to me... But upon its 3rd and 4th use, I realized, holy crap, this thing is really amazing. Not only does it curl quickly- and crimplessly, it also holds its curl for the entire day! I think I'm reformed. Are you? What's your favorite eyelash curler?

Good review :)
I really really wanted to purchase the Shu one, but was held back because of the price.
But good to know it works for you:)
