Much better than drugstore brands, you will notice the difference. I personally like to heat it up a little with a hairdryer before using it. I've tried the Dior heated eyelash curler but I find just warming this one up a little is a lot more effective.

Shu umer or shiseido are the only eyelash curlers to get, they are the best hands down.

I have absolutely loved this lash curler since the very first day I purchased it. Until I recently found out that I can not, I repeat CAN NOT buy replacement pads for it. I have searched high and low and to no avail. That irks me. So as much as it keeps my lashes curled and visible and not sticking straight down like usual. I will not repurchase because I believe you must replace eyelash curler pads often. What I do believe Shu is trying to tell us is that we need to replace the whole eyelash curler after so long which I am not sure of whether that is true or just a a marketing scam. These days all it is is money money money. Not all of us have been born fortunate enough to buy things like that often. I being one of them. Sorry for the raNT. Apology. Anyone have any suggestions for a replacement that is just as good and sells replacement pads??? Message me please.

I've been using the Shiseido curler for a couple of years before I got the Shu Uemura one, and at the time it was the best that I had tried (got me to start using curlers regularly). But I always had to take some time to maneuver it in order to reach the lashes at the outer corners.

I only recently bought the Shu one thinking I might need a curler that has a rounder arc than that of the Shiseido one, and I'm glad I did!

The curler fits my eye shape very well, it easily grabs all my lashes without me having to tug and pull at my lids so much and pinching my lids in the process.
It gives a nice c-shaped curl and the curl lasts a long time.

I am east asian and my eyelids are hooded and has a teeny crease. Not all curlers fit all eyes (stating the obvious), so I recommend that you try out both the Shiseido and Shu Uemura before you decide on either one of them, it may give you a gist of what type of curler you need to look out for (shallower or rounder arc). I still am very fond of the shiseido curler, it's a great one for flatter eyes (a shallower curve) so I think it'll all be down to the shape of your eyes and your preference.

The price isn't cheap, but it's well worth it and this will last me a long time.

REPLACEMENT RUBBER PADS!:
The only downside is that it only comes with one extra refill rubber pad, and Shu Uemura doesn't sell replacement pads separately. HOWEVER I tried my Shiseido replacement rubber pad and it fits well! It may be a teeny tiny bit shorter than the Shu, but it works just as well in my opinion.

You can get Shiseido refills pads online (apparently they sell them at the counters in Japan but not every country sells them separately) so I highly recommend trying the Shiseido rubber pads if your Shu one runs out and your curler is still in working condition.

Haven't written a review in ages, but this one brought me back to LIFE, MUA!!

For years I have used different curlers - ignoring the legacy of Shu's. I knew it was the best and had heard through the grapevine that there is nothing comparable, but I'm stubborn like that and thought, wait, it's just a tool... could LOreal or Sephora or Shiseido really get it wrong?

I have stick straight, blonde, long eyelashes. This eyelash curler is the only thing that works for me!

Mind you, it is not 5 stars for me. It doesn't give me the crazy curl that a lot of girls with natural curl get. But, it makes my eyelashes not as stick-straight as they usually are, and brightens my eye.

Would repurchase, no doubt. And its really not that expensive considering how long it lasts. I've had mine for around a year now.

I have had mine for 8 years or so and it is still perfect. I have tried a few brands but nothing comes close to the mack daddy of curlers. It does the best job and keeps it simple.

Excellent product which delivers the promised performance: provides a good curl that lasts long.
The problem for me is the shape and depth of the curve. I have to be really careful to get all the lashes curled and prevent my lids from being pinched. I am assuming it is due to the fact the curler is Asian. Wish they made a different version of the curler for European buyers with a deeper curve.

I've been using this eyelash curler for several years now and it is the only one I have ever been happy with. I'm always happy with the results and the lack of pinching if I do make a mistake. One issue is that it is not quite big enough for my big eyes, but it's not that a second pass with the curler can't deal with. Another issue is that it doesn't come with more than one replacement pad so you have to keep buying new curlers. Finally, it is like $20 for one curler, which could always be cheaper, but I'm happy enough with it that I'm willing to continue spending.

I've been using the Shu Uemura eyelash curler for about a year now and I find that the flatness of the eyelash curler fits my Asian eye shape very well. Since converting to this curler, I haven't had any painful pinches to eyelid skin. The width is good for me as I can fit all my lashes into the curler, but I do have smaller eyes so this might not be the case for everyone. The top metal part of the curler is also pretty thin so I can get really close to the base of my lashes. I always curl my lashes when using mascara and even just use the curler without mascara for days when I don't feel like wearing make up. I was initially reluctant to buy it because of the AU$30 price tag but have no regrets!

At the end of the day, an eyelash curler is an eyelash curler. But This is amazing and definitely does it's job - makes such a difference to my lashes! If you're looking for an eyelash curler and you're prepared to spend a little bit extra, I would definitely recommend this.
