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!

I didn't think this eyelash curler could really give my eyelashes the lift and life they need, I am so glad I was proven wrong. I adore this curler! With my old eyelash curlers I used to have to press down on the clamp and squeeze fairly hard. With the shu uemura curler it's so effortless. You don't need to squeeze hard at all.

If you are reading the reviews on this curler because you are considering purchasing this eyelash curler: BUY IT!
This curler is amazing! (okay, I don't wanna oversell it, however, this is the only product that does exactly what it says it will do (give a lasting curl to your lashes) without any cons. It doesn't pinch your lids! The curl is noticeable and lasting!
Note: I have short, straight lashes and before this I used the Tarte Eyelash Curler.
Normally, I wear minimal makeup during the day, and that use to include mascara but after purchasing this curler, I no longer wear mascara during the day.
I do wish that it was a little cheaper but it's totally worth it!

I first invested in one about 10 years ago. I was a little skeptical about it working any better than any others, but I was wrong. It really does give a better more natural looking curl to your lashes, compared to all other curlers I had used. Four years later, I was at a party for work and left my purse in a bedroom, someone rummaged through my purse, left all my money, cards, MAC and Chanel makeup, but stole my freakin' Shu Uemura eyelash curler. Seriously!? Who the #@#%$% does that? (Yes, I know it was strange to have even had it with me)
Anyways, I put off buying a new one for a few years. Eventually, when I did, I could not find them anywhere. I am now on a waitlist on the Shu Uemura site.
I give this item a 5 star rating, because any beauty tool worth stealing is a beauty tool I want.
The price is a little steep for a beauty implement you can get for a few bucks at a drug store, but it is something you don't need to replace every 3-6 months like some of my expensive makeup. It's an investment. Just don't let that baby out of your site.

This is the only eye lash curler that I have, so I don't know how to compare it with another brand. I just write a review based on my experience.
I am not into eye lash in general. I never curl them, never put mascara on. I know it sounds weird, but it's because I have straight and short lashes. But, this eye curler REALLY HELPS my poor eye lashes to curl, although I am not good using it. Lol.

Background: I have very straight, rigid eyelashes typical to those of Chinese descent though I don't quite have a monolid. Nevertheless, with normal curlers I've always found it hard to reach the innermost lashes of my eyes.
Opinion: This curler is so ridiculous effective. With one solid, or a few little firm squeezes at the base of my lashes they immediately have a near 90 degree angle. I bought my curlers in Japan and Hong Kong whilst on a few trips and the shape is much more rounded which I have found suit my almond shaped eyes really well. Nearly all of my lashes are curled in one go. However, the innermost lashes, just like any other curler I've used, cannot be reached. But I think that's just due to the shape. Even when I use a mini curler I can't get to the last inner lashes, so considering that this curler is as good as it gets for me.
I've never had any pinching with this, though I have been curling my lashes religiously since I was 16 so I'm fairly experienced. Curlers are my absolute must have - even if I wear absolutely no other makeup, I'll feel absolutely comfortable if mine are well curled. This one has absolutely met my expectations.
Have had it for nearly 5 months, used almost daily and the pad has not really worn at all.
Technique: I like my lashes to have strong curve and not to be at a right angle. As mentioned before, I curl the base very well first and then slowly creep the curler up with little presses towards the tip to put them at a nice C shape.
Price: Got it for about $15-$20 AUD when I was in Japan and Hong Kong respectively. Awesome bargain, definitely can't get the same here in Australia. Would definitely repurchase again when I get a chance to travel next or find a reliable source online - everything is overpriced here.

This eyelash curler is the best for actually creating a curl in my lashes! I don't have short lashes but I find that most eyelash curlers I've tried simply create a half-curl where they stick up but they're not curled, and my lashes end up either straight or just completely back down to normal. A lot of other eyelash curlers (eg. Revlon and Quo) are quite large and don't fit my eye very well, but this one has more of flatter shape and fits the curve of my eye a lot better.
The curler itself is quite expensive (around $24 at Sephora) but it's worth the money if you've tried a lot of other ones and none of them have worked!

The Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler works very well without making my eyelashes look as though they've been crimped. Nice smooth curved curl. It must have something to do with the curved silicone pad. I also like the fact there was no pinching of my eyelids. This eyelash curler does exactly what it is supposed to do if you follow the directions and the curl lasts all day even without out mascara.
I bought this at Sephora. Unfortunately I was not told that the silicone eye pad lasts only 3 months if used everyday. The good news is Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler does come with a 2nd silicone pad. The bad news is once the 2nd pad is worn out...you are supposed to replace the entire eyelash curler ! ! ? ? ! ! And this is not an inexpensive item. The search continues.

I have used this for years, and just found out that you have to buy a new curler once your rubber pad wears out. I think this is the case with many other brands, but this curler was expensive!
Anyway, I also just found out that the company was purchased by Loreal and that you will soon only be able to buy Shu Uemura products overseas, or online. How can the metal curler "wear out"? Anyway . . .
