I've tried this curler and it's my regular one. I think it curls lashes just like any other curler I have like Mac and Majorlica Majorca. I don't see what the fuss is about though.
This cutlets is amazeballs. Not sure how I ever survived without it. It curls my lashes perfectly and they stay curled for at least 24 hours ( even after removing eye makeup). It's now an essential part of my everyday routine
I've always used drugstore eyelash curlers like Revlon and ELF. But I didn't feel like the drugstore eyelash curlers did anything for my eyelashes. So I decided to invest in a good eyelash curler. I picked up this eyelash curler from Sephora. It was pretty pricey but it came with a replacement pad. I tried it and instantly fell in love with it. It really curls my eyelashes instead of pulling them out. I highly recommend it to anyone that's looking for a good eyelash curler. A comparable eyelash curler would be from Shiseido.
After reading very good reviews i decided to purchase this one from Beautybay (UK webshop) as this is so hard to find in the Netherlands like most good cosmetic products :-( I must say that it does it's job very well!Its'sturdy and comes with a spare rubber.
The only downside is that you have to be very carefull when squeezing as it tends to squees the skin in the corner of your eye iff you place it to far down on the eyelid and that hurts a lot
.When you have smallnarrow eyes,this is not the one for you!Otherwise it's a great curler with long lasting effect .Use it in combination with the Chanel Le Volume mascara and you will find yourself with killer lashes!!
I cannot live without eyelash curlers and fed up with buying cheaper versions that break after a few months, so I gave in and bought these Shu Umera eyelash curlers and can say they are great. They are overpriced but worth it, and I have been told by a make up artist in Space NK that you can buy refills from Muji for 95p which are perfect for the Shu Umera curler. So I will be doing this.
I've used different types of eyelash curlers in the past
Shiseido, cheap ones, etc.
When i first used this curler, i was very impressed, with just one curl, my eyelashes looked very curled and full.
I have straight eyelashes, and not too short , not too long.
Personally, the more i curl them the more they curl
I hold for about 5 seconds and then curl them again, at least 2 more times.
The curl doesn't hold for too long though, at least not alone.
The curl holds very well with some mascara.
Overall, i do like this eyelash curler, its no miracle worker but it does get the job done.
It's been the best one i've used so far, I do recommend using some mascara if you want to hold the curl though.
I have very straight eyelashes that can be curled but not like others I have seen.
I ordered this curler from the shu site and I am not jumping for joy. It is a perfectly adequate curler but not any better than the tweezerman one I had been using. The other ds types are just as good, as well.
Not the be-all-end-all for me.
If nothing works for you at all, you could try it but do not expect miracles.
To me, this eyelash curler does its basic job but it's not the best. Personally, I have quite long lashes and I find that this curler often makes the 90 degree crimp onto them, which makes it harder for me to apply mascara on.
I've had my Shu eyelash curler for ages. I'm half Asian so eyelash curling is a must if I want to see them. I've tried several, and as far as curling, this one has been the best for me. I warm my eyelash curler up with my blow dryer before using it, à la eyelash curling iron, lol.
I recently emailed Shu Uemura to see if I could purchase refills anywhere, and this was the response:
"Our eyelash curler comes with a silicone pad and an additional replacement pad. Each silicone pad should ideally be replaced after 3 months of use. After 6 months of use, we recommend that you change your eyelash curler for safety reasons.
The quality of the product we provide to you is of the highest standards. It is a handmade precision tool and with daily use, the repeated opening and closure of the hinge, the mechanism will eventually shift. Although these changes are not visible to the naked eye, they do warrant that you replace your eyelash curler twice a year."
Really? I'm disappointed in Shu. Is their product so poorly made and flimsy that you have to buy a new curler every 6 months to a year, and at $20+ a pop? If so, how can the quality be that high? You can buy a drugstore one that will last for years.
This tells me that the company is only interested in their bottom line and perhaps putting one over on the customer. Also, not very 'green' if you have to throw the curler away every 6 months. I've turned the silicone pads I have upside down, and also the 'wrong' way (they're curved one way and I've put them in 'against the grain') in an attempt to keep using them.
I'd love any suggestions on something comparable to Shu's curler. I do love the results I get with it, but I just don't like feeling scammed.
I love the eyelash curler! It fits my eyelids super well(monolid) and had never pinched my skin. I really recommend this product. Very well worth the price.
