Now that I finally have some lashes to curl – thanks to GrandeLASH MD, I decided to splurge on the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, which for years I have been hearing is this holy grail of eyelash curlers. I am no eyelash curler expert, but it is an improvement from my cheapo drugstore curler.
Due to the “mushroom-shaped” silicone pad that provides a protective and cushiony edge and a ergonomically designed handle and smartly engineered hinge for safe and comfortable gripping, you can apply the perfect amount of pressure for an optimal curling effect that is natural looking. I find that it it is easier to use and that I don’t end up pinching myself as much.
With continued use, the silicon pad will wear out and hinge mechanism will get looser. There is one replacement silicone pad included with the curler, but unfortunately, there does not seem to be a way to buy any more. The company recommends replacing the entire curler once the curler starts to lose its effectiveness, but you can substitute replacement pads for the Shiseido Eyelash Curler, which are easier to buy online.
So give it a try. You will notice the difference in your selfies!
