The one and only Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

I have tried many eyelash curlers - from drugstore to high end department store brands - and no one does it better than Shu Uemura. It may sound expensive, at $19, but it will last for a few years.

It has been voted as 'the best' by InStyle, Elle, and many other magazines. The curler is a staple in most makeup bags, including my own. I have looked for the perfect curler for many years, and this baby is the one for me! No pinching. No pulling. It's easy to use and fits perfectly around my eye.

Of course, if your lashes already have a curl you may barely notice a difference after using eyelash curlers. Or it may not fit your eye-shape. I suggest to try it where Shu Uemura is sold to see if it's the right fit for you. (I found it at Sephora in Vancouver).

The only problem I ran into was replacing the padding. Shu Uemura doesn't sell pads separately. The curler comes with 2 extra pads (total of 3) and each lasts for about 3-6 months. After using up all the pads, I would have to buy a new curler. :(

Value: 4/5
Packaging: clean and simple
Lasting Power: 1-2 years
Price: $$$

Overall: 4/5

Would I buy it again? Yes!
