I have had my limited edition 14k gold Shu curler for going on maybe the 5th or 6th year now. It has barely tarnished in color and still clamps excellently with 4-5x weekly use! I refill the pads with the Shiseido pad refills and I have had no problems for years.
The only curler I know how to use. The others just feel awkward and pinch my eyelid. It curls nicely, I hold it around 3-5 secs, else my lashed will look like crimped. The reason why I rate it 4 stars because the curler still can't get the lashes at the corner. I still use the shu uemura s curler to reach the hard part. Anyway, best curler ever. Definitely will buy it again.
I haven't used an eye lash curler for over 10 years but i recently found out i wasn't doing it properly! I thought I would try the Shu Uemura eyelash curler after reading good reviews from a makeup guru. I have straight Asian lashes so would rely on my mascara to curl my lashes a bit. I love this curler! My eyelashes curl really well and it seems like the Shu Uemura curler is well designed for all eye shapes, including Asian eyes. What I also love about this is that when I put mascara on (which is even more fun to do now!), I get less smudges underneath my eyes from the mascara... a result from straight lashes. My curls last all day and night in conjunction with mascara (I use Le Volume de Chanel which is the best mascara I've used). And my eyes open up so much more and my lashes stand out much more, which is a lot for someone with straight Asian lashes! :)
Been using this for years, never breaks and works perfectly!
I've had multiple eye lash curlers in the past. After I decided to splurge on this curler, I realize what the hype is about. For my Asian eyes, it was the perfect arch to curl ALL my lashes evenly in one pinch. The curler's padding is also stiffer compared to others, which lends to effortless curling without squeezing hard at all.
The big problem is that I lost the extra refill padding :( and simply half the magic is gone without it! I have tried the elf eye curler pads and it's just so flimsy and has too much give to it. It's just ridiculous to buy another curler just because the pad is worn out. If any one knows where I can buy stiff eye lash curler pads like this one. LET ME KNOW!
Best eyelash curler! It's a bit pricey but it is well worth it. It keeps them curled all day
Really like how this eyelash curler doesn't pinch my skin and really curls my lashes significantly. Love it for that. However, my outer lashes aren't as curled as the rest. Since I really like the winged out long outer lashes kind of look, I probably won't repurchase this and instead get the S curler for more precision.
I have been using this eyelash curler for the last couple of years and it has worked amazingly with me only needing to repurchase it once. The curl lasts all day, even if i don't apply mascara.
The perfect eyelash curler. Previously I used a no-brand eyelash curler from a random pharmacy which couldn't catch my eyelashes at all. I figured it was my eyelashes which were problematic. But then I bought this to collect Shu Uemura points, and curling my lashes has never been easier!
The first day I used it I marvelled at how it opened up my eyes (with mascara), haha. So did my mum, who asked me curiously how my eyes suddenly looked so big.
It's quite expensive at S$30 but since it lasts forever, it's a good buy for me. Definitely recommend for those looking to invest in a lifetime eyelash curler.
I had been skeptical about splurging on an eyelash curler for years. Finally made an impulsive buy that day and had never regretted since.
It does really curl my Asian eyelashes much better than any other eyelash curlers. My lashes remained curled throughout the day and I no longer have to bring an eyelash curler out with me to re-curl them during the day. This product indeed does wonders!
