Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers

When it comes to false eyelashes, I will put my hands up and admit that I am absolutely useless. I've done it time and time again: paid £6.50 for a pair of eyelures or 'Cheryl' lashes, spent half an hour of my precious 'getting ready time' (of which there is rarely enough of anyway) attempting to stick them to my face only to get really frustrated and throw them in the bin. The last time I wore false lashes was on my 21st birthday back in December, and that was only with the assistance from my very patient mother. Plus I think I look like a drag queen when I wear them anyway.

There has been a massive hype amongst bloggers for these eyelash curlers from Japanese brand Shu Uemura. The award winning eyelash curlers claim to provide 'the perfect curl' and reviews from fellow bloggers have even professed that these curlers, paired with a decent mascara, eliminate the need for false eyelashes. That pretty much sold it for me.

I dithered over the price for a while (£20 is a bit of a step up from my £3 curlers from Boots), but when I saw them on BuyaPowa I joined the co-buy straight away. Within 24 hours all 100 pairs had sold out and everyone got them for the 'best price' of £14.50 - very pleased! I'd never used BuyaPowa before, but now I think it's great. So good for getting a bargain and it's really exciting tracking the item and watching the price go down (or maybe that's just me)! These pictures aren't the best and the mascara I used (No7 Fanomenal Lashes) is running out so I think it would look even better with a new mascara, but I can't even say how pleased I am with these curlers. They truly make your eyelashes look amazing even without mascara.

Have you tried the Shu Uemura eyelash curlers yet? What's your 'holy grail' eyelash product? x

  1. Ah I've heard a lot about these but I still can't see how they can be any different from any other curlers. I heat mine up with my hairdryer first and I find they're a lot more effective. Maybe I'll have to try these to see though!

    I am always looking for tips about eyelashes, mascara, as I have really such super straight lashes and when a curl lasts makes my eyes look bigger and gorgeous..

    I so love sharing with others about great products I have tried ~ The best ever`` eyelash curler I have ever found is the Hot Lashes eyelash curler, makeup Artist kit. Loved the reviews on Amazon and was impressed. There is also a site of the same name Hot

    This curler is exactly like the gold Shu Uemura curler with a sturdy 24K gold plated curler and this small pink heater base. Keeps my straight lashes curling till the next day....and no crimp, only a curl..I so HTH~
