II have recently heard alot of raves going on about the Shu Uemura eyelash curler. I was in the New York City for the weekend and wanted to head to Sephora (they have a Sephora on every corner!) to pick up one. Since they are much cheaper there ($19 USD compared to $30 CAD). It around 9pm and was walking around near the Times Square and I finally found a Sephora. Unfortunately, they were out of the Shu Uemura eyelash curlers so I just picked up the closest thing to it, which is the Shiseido Eyelash Curler. I went online and saw many beauty gurus were bloging about the difference the two. Since I've never had the chance to try the Shu Uemura Curler myself, I don't know its performance. However after trying otu the Shiseido curler, I loved it!!
The Package came with the curler itself and an extra replacement rubber band. the curler is flatter than most of the eyelash curlers which fits the Asian eyeshape really well. Another thing about the curler is that instead of plain metal coloured, its in black which gives a more of a professional tool feeling.
I usually wear false eyelashes since its really to hold a curl on my lashes. But with these curlers, they really curl my lashes! In these pictures, I have curled my lashes and have the Benefit Badgal Brown Mascara
Ofcourse, the curl doesn't give you the effect of false lashes (that's the mascara's job) but nonetheless, its a really good natural effect. Overall, I'm really happy with the performance of the eyelash curler =)
