The Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler's I didn't need to get

I crumbled a few weeks ago and got the iconic and most talked about eyelash curlers ever - the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers. Under the impression that these would simply change my life I trotted on down to the Shu Uemura shop in Brighton and handed over £20. I hand't actually ever used eyelash curlers before getting a free pair by Eyeko from InStyle magazine in May.
I really liked these and having never used eyelash curlers before started using these almost daily - the velvet handles are super easy to use and I thought the results were great. BUT - surely if I like these I would LOVE the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler's - they are the best eyelash curlers in the world no?
Well after months, if not years of resisting the urge to purchase these I did and it's not that I am miserably disappointed with them - they do a good job - it's just that the free ones I got with a magazine do the job just as well (if not better). I actually find myself reaching for the Eyeko ones much more...
Are the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler's worth £20? Definitely not. They are a great eyelash curler but I should have just stuck with my freebie.

  1. At a first glance, I would've guessed the velvet handled ones were the more expensive ones. I think there's only so much eyelash curlers can do. I've got an amazing Japsonesque eyelash curler that's heated, you use it more like a mascara stick than one of these crimp-style ones.


  2. I know what you mean, there is only so much eyelash curlers can do. They have become part of my routine now but I should have just stuck with my original free ones. The Japsonesque eyelash curlers do sound tempting though! Jade x
