This is my first Shu Uemura curler and it did not disappoint! To start, I went with this one in particular because I saw Tati use it on her YouTube channel. I had to have it. The best part is this is hands down the best eyelash curler I have EVER used and I have used so many! Every damn curler I have bought always seems to pinch my eyelids because I’m trying to curl as close as possible to the root of my lashes. I’m not new to at using an eyelash curler, so curling my eyelashes shouldn’t be so difficult or painful.
Not only that, other eyelash curlers never even curled very well for that matter. THIS EYELASH CURLER WORKS. It gets to the root of my lashes due to the curvature of the curler itself. The design, utter perfection.
The design keeps me from pinching my lids, curls all my lashes, and leaves a curl that lasts all day. I keep bracing myself for the inevitable lid pinch, but it hasn’t happened. Yet. I can feel my eyelashes brushing against my brow bone all day. Some curlers bend the lashes so they stick up in an L shape. It looks unnatural and you can feel it when you blink etc.
This bends the lashes in a natural curve going upwards. It outlasts any other curler I’ve had, the rubber part also sets this apart from your average curler. It doesn’t change shape, it doesn’t cut open where the upper part pushes down on it etc. It’s super sturdy.
Your lashes won’t droop the entire day either. Even using a blowdried curler can’t beat this thing. I love the curler so much, I’m kicking myself for not purchasing it sooner! If you’ve always struggled with curlers or are a little sparse on the lash front, these may be a worthy investment.
