After being disappointed by yet another eyelash curler I had purchased from the drugstore, I set out to find out if there was a top rated eyelash curler on the market and came to the Shu Uemura eyelash curler. After reading several reviews, I figured I had nothing to lose and took the plunge.
Granted, when you first get it, it is not impressive and looks like any other ordinary eyelash curler (keyword being “looks”). I’ve been using this eyelash curler for about two weeks now and WOW – let me tell you, what a difference! With my old eyelash curler I would have to repeat the same motions over and over to achieve the proper curl I wanted from my lashes. Not with this one! A couple swipes of this and the curl not only holds, but there aren’t any crease lines in your lashes or a cramped hand afterwards.
To work effectively, an eyelash curler must have an ample amount of torque and the Shu Uemura does not disappoint in its quality design. It is also important to note that this eyelash curler was designed with all eye shapes and types in mind and it does not pinch or pull out eyelashes. It is effortless and easy – everything you should have in your makeup tools.
An example of what my lashes looked like after using the Shu Uemura eyelash curler. It’s harder to tell on me as my eyelashes are so blond, but you can see how natural the curl looks.
Please be careful when purchasing a Shu Uemura and always make sure you’re purchasing through a trusted source. There are many fakes floating around out there and I can tell you from personal experience, they are nowhere near the quality of the real Shu Uemura.
