Worth The Hype: Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers (£20)

These beauties were a cheeky duty free airport purchase recently, and if you don't already own them, I'm sure the first question on your lips will be, "Are they worth it?".

The answer is a big fat YES!

I have had Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers on my beauty wishlist for years, and of course the price always put me off.  In the back of my mind was always a little voice telling me that I simply didn't need to pay £20 for something that I can easily pick up an equivalent of for less than a fiver.  All eyelash curlers are the same right?

Wrong.  Oh, so, so, wrong.

There's a reason why so many beauty gurus rave about these and simply put, they are just the best eyelash curlers, ever.  They don't pinch (you might think your budget ones are fine, but after trying these, you'll understand the pinching thing), the design of the handle just makes them very steady to hold, and most importantly, they curl your lashes like they've never been curled before.  On top of this, the curl somehow STAYS PUT too.  Genius stuff.

So the next time your budget eyelash curlers break (it was this reason couple with the fact I was in an airport at the time and could get these tax free, that definitely sealed the deal for me), consider investing in a pair of Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers, especially if you'll use them everyday like I do.  I'm hoping that these will last forever!

I also spotted on Tracy's blog that you can now get these in limited edition 24k gold, how luxe is that?!

If you have these, do you think they live up to the hype?  If you don't have them, are they on your wishlist?

  2. I've wanted these for so long now! They sound amazing but i just cant justify them because i already have MAC ones which are quite good. I might as well just buy them now though, i know i'll cave in eventually ha x

  8. Glad that they live up to the hype for you! It was a toss up between Shu and Shiseido for me, I picked the latter mainly because I'd read reviews saying they were quite similar and Shiseido was slightly cheaper. But I'd be interested to try these sometime in the near future :)
