I like the rubber pad on this curler because it isn't as squishy as the silicon pad on my cheap Revlon curler. This means I don't have to squeeze so hard and for so long. It's very effective at catching and curling my super straight Asian lashes that point down. The curl lasts all day when combined with my Urban Decay Cannonball mascara.
One downside as mentioned in previous reviews is that the color of the curler is so dark that I can't see my lashes through it as well, which makes me pinch myself if I'm not careful. I find this to be a minor bother when compared to the great results I get.

i have a mister mascara (red and black) curler which is way better than this, at probably no more than a third of the price.
where to start? this curler is much heavier, doesnt have a spring action, it has a shallower opening for your lashes (making it tricky to 'corale' the lashes in to place), its less comfortable to hold
having said that, it does seem to give a longer lasting curl.
overall, not worth the money

Second best eyelash curler! (Behind the Shu Uemera). This is so amazing at curling lashes. It keeps the lashes curled the whole day!
One thing I dislike, is the color of it. Because I have black eyelashes. It's hard to see them with the dark grey color behind it. It's hard not to accidentally pinch yourself :/
The price range is alright. It could be a little cheaper but for the quality, it's probably worth the money. I definitely recommend this eyelash curler! 100%.

This is the best eyelash curler I've used. Since the day I got it I've never lived without it. The quality of this eyelash curler is amazing, after all this years (bought it in 2009) it still looks new, I just need to change the gel pad once or twice a year. It curls eyelashes like nothing else, makes eyelashes look extremely curly and natural at the same time. I use it to curl my eyelashes twice or three times and it makes my eyelashes stay nicely curled for a long time, even after I take off my makeup with oil. I love this eyelash curler and will recommend it to every one as well.

The best! Doesn't pinch my skin like some narrow curlers.

Like many others, I switched from using the ever-so-coveted Shu Uermura to Shiseido, and I was happy with the switch. The Shiseido curler is better suited for my eye shape, and created a more natural curl at the corners of my eyes, something my Shu wasn't so good at. I liked that the Shiseido curler came with a replacement pad, but if you want to get more, you have to pay $6 per replacement pad, which is pretty expensive, considering the curler costs about $20ish.
That being said, I don't use it anymore. I still have it on hand, and I'll throw it in my purse once in a while since I won't be too sad if it gets destroyed while I tote it around. It's not that this curler was bad.. I liked it while I had it. It's just that I found something even better: the Japonesque Power Curl. The Japonesque eyelash curler is cheaper, curls lashes better, and you can request unlimited pad refills!

I've heard great things about the shu uemura one as well, but it's pretty difficult to get a hold of here in Canada. But I've heard this was a good alternative, and I don't know how I lived without this baby before. I've had it for about 5 months now and even if I don't wear mascara (sometimes I like to give my face a break from makeup), I'll curl my lashes to open up my eyes.
I have the typical short, sparse Asian lashes. Lash curlers I've had before only got the middle section of my lashes and a couple of hours later, the curl would be gone. This curler, though, holds the curl like nobody's business and it gets ALL my lashes. And the curl lasts all day! You do have to be careful not to pinch your eyelid like some have said, but with practice, it's not difficult at all.
You can purchase this at select Shoppers Drug Mart for $20CDN (that's where I got mine), and I even got a great gift with purchase as well. Score! I'll definitely repurchase, but with an extra replacement pad that comes with the curler, I doubt that will be for a long time.

Love this!! Was a long time Shu user, but when they got hard to find, it was time to move on. I tried a bunch of different drug store eyelash curlers, but nothing worked like a Shu. I started reading reviews on MUA, and saw that people loved the Shiseido, so I decided to try it. I love it, and it works better on my lashes than the Shu ever did!! It is easy to curl my long lashes, and it never pinches my lid or pulls out lashes. I am Caucasian, and I have average sized eyes. I bought a second one as a backup and for travel.

Let me start off my saying that my eyelashes don't really need to be curled. I have pretty nice dark and fairly long eyelashes. But I gotta admit, that just isn't enough to me! I wanted the updated version of my eyes, something doll-like and ultra-feminine. So, even though I had never really used an eyelash curler, I started researching curlers and bought this one for around $20 at Macys. At first I wasn't really impressed but after about a week I got the hang of it and now I use it daily! I'm not sure if I just got better at using it or maybe I have stubborn eyelashes or what. After clamping it a few times, I have nicely curled, longer looking lashes. After adding a coat or two of mascara, I have some impressive looking eye-balls. Awesome! As a side note, I am not asian but it still fits the shape of my eye well.

Amazing! I actually got complimented on how long my eyelashes are. That's the first time it's ever happened. It cost less than my favorite lipstick, too. Plus!

oh god, the best eyelash curler ever! I have used a few different drugstore brands, all of them did not fit my Asian eyes. Shiseido, on the other hand, manages to curl my short, straight lashes perfectly! When I curl them, generally my lashes stay curled all day unless the weather is harsh (wind). I have seen some reviews about pinching, but it doesn't pinch my eyelids. I highly recommend this product to the girls who are struggling with finding the perfect eyelash curler! They will stay in your pouch for a long time once you find the right one.

This is the older silver one. I think they only sell the new, dark grey colored version in North America now. I bought this on sasa.com for around $12. It curls really well and fits my eyes pretty well but it pulls out my lashes if I get too close to the base, and I don't mean like 1 eyelash, I mean 3-5 lashes at a time. I once had a small bald spot on my lashes because of this. I like the Shu Uemura better.

I cannot say enough how wonderful this curler is. It changed my life. Better than Shu Uemura!
BEST EYELASH CURLER EVER!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Very Oily, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Straight, Medium Eyes: Black
I am biracial Asian-white. My eyes are larger than the average Asian eyes and my lids are more hooded than the average non-Asian eye. I also inherited my Caucasian side's hairiness (in fact I'm probably hairier than most white people...don't laugh). As much as I hate having to wax my upper lip and pluck my brows every two weeks, being hairy blesses you with naturally long eyelashes. But you can't see them under my hooded eyes without me curling them. Shu Uemura and most other curlers are way too curved for my eyes. I could not find a flatter curler anywhere. Shiseido's is the only one can that grab just about every section at the root because of it's flatter curvature. The Shiseido curler might be a little TOO flat for me or someone with very round, popping eyes, but having a too flat curler is better than a too-curved one because you can just move it around and curl in sections. Can't do that with a very curved curler.
I never realized how much of a difference an eyelash curler can make until the past couple years. Prior to that, I was always blaming mascaras for not making my lashes curl and pop out. For a really long-lasting curl, you can take a lighter to the top metal part (careful not to burn the rubber!) for a few seconds. Just like curling the hair on your head, heat will help your lashes stay curled.

BEST CURLER EVER. So glad i bought this on Sephora.com. It curls so much better than any other curlers I've tried and it doesn't pinch me. I use this every day and I love it so much!! Thank you Shiseido!!

I strayed from my beloved Shu Uemura eyelash curler because of my constant curiosity since 1) the two curlers are popular among Asians and are constantly being compared with one another 2) I had a free gift card from Sephora, so why not?
The jury is out and I'm never going to cheat on my Shu ever again. Don't misunderstand me. This is a quality product and there's plenty to like about it, including the price, color, refills pads available to be purchased without buying another curler...etc. BUT it doesn't curl my lashes beautifully the way the Shu does. This curler is a elegant gunmetal color but I find that I can't see my lashes (they're black) while I'm curling them so it's difficult to curl at the center and the tip after initially curling near the lash line. I also have to be very careful or else it will pinch the center of my eyelids. Ouch. So that answers my question- they are definitely not the same shape. Not all Asians have the same eye shape/curvature so it's not a 1-size-fits-all "Asian eyelash curler" so to speak. I've never experienced pinching with the Shu because it's slightly more rounded than the Shiseido curler. I also think that the Shu mushroom pad has a little more give to it so that the "bent" or "L-shaped" lash effect doesn't come into play for me as with this one. That being said, I can still see why this curler would work well for others.

This a wonderful eyelash curler! I can safely say, nothing has worked this good on my eyelashes before. It curls my lashes effectively with minimal effort. However, you do have to be careful not to pinch your eyelid. Thankfully, I had read some of the reviews here before getting mine and knew to be careful, so far I've been fine. It's definitely not the cheapest eyelash curler ever but it's built with quality and probably worth the investment in the long run. Even the packaging looks very elegant! I was also informed that it's possible to buy new rubber pads for this separately which seems great! Very happy with my purchase and recommend it!

I bought this in the gunmetal color & I paid $20. I see a lot of asian people like this eyelash curler, which is why it may not work so well on myself. I agree with the previous reviewer. This curler manages to somehow pinch my lids, so I have to be extra careful when using this one. I've never had that problem with any other eyelash curler before in my life. I too, have honestly used better drugstore curlers than this one, & at a fraction of the price I paid for this one (my Revlon one actually works just as good, if not better). This eyelash curler still does the job, don't get me wrong...but do I think it's worth $20 & better than anything else I've ever used? No, definitely not. I'm happy so many people like it though. I'm going to keep it because it's not that bad & I can work with it, but it just takes a little longer & a little more practice with being careful. But in the future, I will probably try a different eyelash curler.

I still haven't decided how I feel about this product. I have used tons of eyelash curlers and this is the only one that tends to pinch my lids :/
And I don't think it curls better than any other eyelash curler: in fact, I have had better results with drugstore eyelash curlers. Overall, not that great.

great eyelash curler , its much better for asian eyes than shu uemura as it is flatter to the face. easier to use, and it lasts a long time.
