I love this eyelash curler. It certainly does the trick with curling my short, sparse eyelashes. It doesn't pinch either. Easy enough to buy at Target. As usual, SK makes another good implement.

This seems like a nice eyelash curler, it is probably the most I have spent on one, it doesn't pinch and beats the sally hansen one. I still want to give the mac or even the Shu a go if I can one day, but for now this works just fine.

Have been using this for over two years now. Very dependable, sturdy tool; better than any other eyelash curler I have found at Target prices. Never pinches or pulls and no gaps between the clamp. Does the job!

I am half Asian and have a less rounded eyeshape and straight eyelashes. I've been using the Shu curler for years but recently bought the SK curler at Target when I left my makeup bag at work over a weekend. Before purchasing, I compared it to a few others in the store and found it to be less curved from the overhead view. It most reminded me of the Shu curler so I went with it. Works great for me! No pinching or any other issues. I use with waterproof mascara to hold my curl. I curl (pump a few times, then hold for about 5 seconds) then apply mascara.
Mine came with a little clip containing refill pads.
To keep it clean I swipe my Ponds facial wipes on the metal and pads.

This is a really well made tool. The product I bought came with a refill pad. It curls my lashes really well and fits nicely in my hand. I've always used a Revlon curler but I was unhappy with the last one because the pad frayed soon after I bought it. The SK one looks like it will last awhile.

I give this eyelash curler 2 lippies for being a decent eyelash curler. It works. I've had no problems with it.
What I DID have a major problem with was being able to locate any sort of pad refill for the thing. I looked high and low - Target, CVS, Rite Aid, online. It appears that SK doesn't make an eyelash curler pad refill for this product. I wasted money on a generic assortment of pads only to find that none of them fit this curler despite their claim that they fit 'most'. Then, I wasted even more money buying the comical plastic Tweezerman curler. That went right into the garbage because it was so bad. The silicone pads that came with it, and yes, you guessed it, the 2 additional refills I bought along with it are now in my Eyelash Curler Pad Wasteland. For awhile, I was using one of the silicone pads in my SK curler, but last week, it decided not to fit anymore. The corner of the silicone pad keeps popping up and out of the SK curler, making curling my lashes quite a dangerous activity at 6:30 am each day.
So, it is now in the trash. I no longer have the time or the money to waste on this product. I bought a Revlon eyelash curler at Ulta last week for $4.99. I've used it before and have had good results.

I have owned many eyelash curlers before. I've always bought the really cheap Revlon ones or basically whatever I could find because they have all always worked pretty well. I decided to buy the Sonia Kashuk eyelash curler at Target because she makes some great products (i.e. her amazing brushes) and I figured I couldn't go wrong. Well I was wrong! This is the worst eyelash curler I've ever owned. It won't curl my eyelashes and it's awkward to use! I pinched myself a bunch of times before giving up. I could only get the very middle of my eyelashes in the curler. I am caucasian with short eyelashes and normal sized eyes. I'm really disappointed in this and am going to have to toss it. $10 down the drain!!! :(
I do need to mention that I have the "Access Deluxe Curler". I think there was more than one at Target, so I just want to make sure I put the right information out there.

i bought this curler probably a year or two ago and i have to admit, it didn't really do wonders for me since i have korean eyes with pin-straight lashes. it actually works better when i use the combination of shiseido's base for mascara and this curler. it's decent, to say the most. it's not super great, but at least it works. i'm hoping to get the shiseido curler if i can get it behind my mom's back. :D

I actually really love this! It works a lot better than my previous curler. It's well made and easy to use too. ;)

I find it interesting that many Asians have reviewed this product. The shape of our eyes makes eyelash curlers hit and miss. I've tried Maybelline, Sephora, Revlon, and yes, the famed Shu Uyemura, and I like this metal Sonia the best. Having said that, I don't think it's a matter of price but just experimenting to find the best one for your eye shape. This one works for me, maybe not for you, but I think for Asians at least it is worth a try! No where near as pricey as the Shu.

The shape of this curler is not right for me at all. It's too small and I always have trouble getting anything but the middle eyelashes. It pinches my eyelid like no other also (even more than the Revlon curler) and the curl it gives doesn't last. Seriously, I've pinched my eyelids more in the past hour trying to get this thing to work than I have in the past five years. If you have long lashes and small eyes this might work. I'm looking elsewhere.

If you don't have a flat eyelid shape, do NOT get this. I've tested the Shu and the Shiseido from my mommy(: and the SK is kind of like something in between the two, but a bit closer to the Shu. My Asian eyelids are relatively flat and two-dimensional, so I need a curler that's less curved and this delivers fairly well: it's effective, easily accessible through my local Target, and at a fairly low price point.

GREAT eyelash curler! Saw the reviews on here in my quest to find a replacement for my much beloved discontinued Maybelline plastic eyelash curler and decided to buy it. So glad I did! This eyelash curler is just as fabulous to me as Maybelline's. You can even fold it up. Great for travel! Easy to use and leaves lashes with a noticeable curl.

I decided to buy this after I read a review saying that the curler is too "flat" for their eye shape. What do you know, the curler's still a bit too "curvy" for my Asian eyelid shape, but that's expected. My mom owns the Shu and I've tried it out so I can safely say the two are very similar. Shu's is marginally better, but is $15-ish a big enough difference for a poor student living on a budget? I say no.

Horrible. Horrible. Horrible. My lashes will not hold any curl from this curler--and it wasn't cheap! Over $10. Better to spend twice as much and get the Shu Uemura--my last one lasted me for years. Now I have this piece of junk--I'll recycle it with my metals, I guess--and wasted my $$$. And I'm going to go get a Shu curler tomorrow.

This eyelash curler is perfect for those with a nickel allergy or a sensitivity to other metals. I've found even the high-end metal eyelash curlers give me a rash, and most plastic eyelash curlers are of poor quality. Curls evenly, gently - no pulling. Speed is above average for a plastic curler. My only complaint is that refill pads aren't sold for the curler, so the whole unit has to be replaced regularly. At least it's inexpensive.

This is a pretty good eyelash curler, in my opinion. I haven't tried out the Shu or Shi, but would like to, so I don't have anything else to really compare it to. But it really does gives my lashes a nice curl, and I like how it comes with an extra pad and a little carrier on the curler to hold the pad in, that's handy. As for repurchasing, I probably would since I don't have much money or access to getting a Shu or Shi.

This is the best darn eyelash curler I have ever used. Im a diehard lash curler, and Ive used just about every brand out there, including heated ones because I was tired of heating up my metal ones with my hair dryer (risk-kay!). I bought this on a whim b/c it was a travel size so I could throw it in my purse. Holy cow! I first used this about a year ago and havent looked back. Just a few squeezes from this mini plastic curler and Ive got uber curls, no heat required! I rarely have to touch up during the day, too. Its inexpensive, small, and works wonders!
The ONLY con to this curler is that it is plastic and tends to get a small crack right down the middle after a few months. Doesnt phase me tho, the lash payoff out ways any con.
Try it! Its sold at Tarjay.

For its price and its lack of recognition, Sonia Kashuk's eyelash curler is much better than I had expected it to be! I currently use a Shiseido eyelash curler, but honestly, the difference in results from the two different curlers are barely recognizable. SK's just has a little bit more of a tendency to crimp rather than curl, but again, for its cheaper price, I would say that the buy is worth it. Especially for Asian eyelashes, the SK curler is a worthy purchase.

I'm reviewing the white, plastic travel one.
I lost my Shu Uemura eyelash curler and had to get one in a hurry. I read the great reviews for the Kashuk one an bought it at Target. I spent about 15 minutes trying to curl my lashes with NO results. Some reviews say that there is some special technique to this curler. Well, I don't want to have to take a college course to curl my lashes. I want to take it out of the box and just get it to work. I whined so much my DH took me to Walgreen's where I purchased that gold Revlon padded handle one. It worked great right out of the package. The Revlon works better than the Shu Uemura that I lost. If I heat it, the curl in my lashes is still there, even after I've slept all night. The Revlon is my HG. The Kashuk one is junk.
