Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

Only just a few weeks ago, my favourite eyelash curler broke. It was one of the springy eyelash curlers that only requires you to press down you curl your lashes. (it was the Elite Models eyelash curler).
And since im one of those people that enjoy change, I rarely buy beauty products again when I run out or break it, even if they are my all time favourite products. So I thought this was the chance to try out another eyelash curler and what came to mind was the Shu Uemura Eyelash curler.

 Eyelash curlers are a big hit or miss when you get one, you need to find an eyelash curler that fits your eye shape, which is hard considering that everyone's eye shape is different so its a continuous quest to buy various eyelash curlers until you find the one that fits.
I feel like everyone in the beauty community has heard of the Shu Uemura eyelash curler and how it just fits their eyes so perfectly. But seeing as though lots of people raves about it, I thought why not just buy it and try it?!

I bought mine at Beauty Savvy for $27.50 with free shipping. It arrived in 3 days, safe and sound at my doorstep. 
To be honest, I feel like its just one of those typical eyelash curlers you can get anywhere except that the curler is flatter and suits most Asian eyes. The colour of the curler is slightly different too, from afar it looks silver but upclose its more of a slightly brass colour.

Elite Models Eyelash Curler || Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
Compared with the Elite Models Eyelash Curler the Shu Uemura is a tad wider and a tad more curved which may be a perfect fit for most but as for me, sadly it just doesnt curl the ends of my eye very well.
It takes getting used to this curler until I can curl 70% of my lashes but no matter what I do, I just cant curl the lashes at the ends. The only method that works is to lift up the end of my browbone, but even that only curls the tip of the ends. 

Sadly this eyelash curler just does not work well with my eyes, I will still be using this until it breaks or until the pad  runs out, since I am definitely not going to waste the money spent on this.
I still have yet to try out Shiseidos Eyelash Curler and hopefully that works well.


  1. Its such a shame that it only curled 70% of your lashes because otherwise this curler makes your lashes curl so nicely! I'm using the Shiseido eyelash curler currently and it's really good! Hope it works well for you when you try it ^_^


    1. yeah its sad, just going to have to use this curler up until I can try the Shiseido curler!! Thanks Fifi :)

  2. I got one recently and i would pick my shiseido curler any day... I felt that there was too much curve to the shu curler... I couldn't get a lot of my lashes. I don't think this works well for asian eyes at all.. not sure what all the hype is about :/ shiseido curler is 100% better!
