Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers




The Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers. Probably the most talked about eyelash curlers of all time. I had my last £3.50 pair for a year or so, before they literally fell apart in my hands. I then went for about a week without curling my lashes, and noticed that the cheapy pair hadn't really been doing anything at all! I decided to 'invest' in a pair of the hyped Shu Uemura Curlers. Whilst looking like any old pair of eyelash curlers, as soon as you pick them up you can feel they're a lot more sturdy and better built. They come in silver or gold, and a spare silicone refill pad is included. They're meant to be seriously long lasting, which I hope justifies the £20 price tag - I've heard of people using the same pair for 5 years!






The first time I used them, I was actually shocked. Maybe it was because I'd been using my crappy pair for so long, but the effect on my lashes was amazing. They give such a strong curl, it's actually possible to over-curl! I'd recommend squeezing the lashes once at the base and once half way up the lash in order to avoid the 'folded-over' lash effect and get a more natural curl. All in all I'm extremely happy with my purchase, and if I ever need to buy another pair of eyelash curlers, I won't be looking anywhere else.

  3. Ahhh I want these so bad!! I'm a total eyelash curling freak and although I have a good pair of tweezerman ones which I've used for a year or so now, it takes 3/4 attempts (heating with my hairdryer LOL) to curl them as much as I like...maybe I'll get these and have an extra 10 minutes in bed woop woop :)

  8. I've never been one to use eyelash curlers because I never think they really do anything but maybe that's because like you I've had really cheap crappy pair since I was a small child ha so I just judge all others based on those!!! I may have to invest in a pair of these myself!

  10. I recently got a new pair of eyelash curlers in a goody bag so decided to switch to using those and throw away the old one's I'd had for several years and I was so shocked when I first used the new ones. My previous ones obviously weren't very good or were just well past their best as there was such a difference with the new ones. I suddenly had super curled fluttery lashes :)
