The Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler is a ‘cult-classic’ eyelash curler that is an”award-winning” and includes an “enhanced design” and “upgraded features” for the essential eyelash curler for your makeup bag.

It is the “iconic” eyelash curler and is “bestselling” in Canada and the U.S.  The Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler gives your eyelashes “the ultimate” treatment in “precision” eyelash curling. Its design has been recently altered to include a “silicone pad” that is in the shape of a “mushroom.” The mushroom silicone pad provides an ‘easy to use’ and “stay-put edge for improved safety” and the best curl your pretty eyelashes have ever experienced.

As well, the “patented hinge” from Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler has also been “upgraded with precise engineering” so that when you use it, you only apply the “perfect” amount or force of “pressure” to curl your lashes.

The “curved angle” of the mushroom silicone pad “suits all eye shapes” and the shape and size of the eyelash curler’s frame, along with its “ergonomic[ally]” shaped design makes the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler one of the best eyelash curlers out there. It provides “stability” and ease while curling your lashes. As well, it doesn’t end up pinching or poking any other part of your eye or eye area.

How To Use It For Great Curls

To achieve beautifully curled eyelashes “firmly catch” your eyelashes and curl them from the roots to their tips by clamping your eyelashes gently with the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler. Apply a lash curling mascara such as Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash & Lifting Mascara
to further hold your curled eyelashes and help them keep their shape.

Be sure to purchase extra silicone pads for your Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler from your local department or makeup store as bacteria can build up on the silicone pads especially if you curl your eyelashes daily. it is recommended that you change the silicone pads every 3 months to avoid eye infections.

Moreover, it would also be wise to avoid curling your eyelashes daily and to be gentle when curling your eyelashes as any eyelash curler when overused, can cause your eyelashes to fall out and nobody wants that! If you are able, save your eyelash curler for special occasions and nights out.

It is also recommended by Shu Uemura that you change your eyelash curler every 6 months when you use it regularly; however, I’ve never heard of anyone’s who does this. Most people have their eyelash curlers for years.

As long as you ‘disinfect’ your Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler a few times a year, I see no reason why keeping it would be an issue since the eyelash curler itself is made mostly of metal. Boil it in a pot or leave it soapy hot dishwater to disinfect your Eyelash Curler a few times a year. Again, make sure to replace the silicone eyelash pads every 3 months.

What at the Experts Say 

Reading through the reviews on the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, most women absolutely love this eyelash curler and say it never “pinched” their “eyelids” as most other eyelash curlers had  done in the past. Of all the people who left reviews, ” 71″ percent gave the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler 5 stars out of 5.

The only concern I saw on Amazon, was that some women said they received ‘fakes’ as they had had Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers in the past me recognized the difference. What they received in the mail was a fake. Nevertheless, other women were completely satisfied and said they very much received the real eyelash curler and that they loved how “gentle” it was on their eyes and eyelashes.

If you’re afraid to buy this product on Amazon because of this, I did find the exact same Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler available at in Canada, but not in the U.S. However, you can find the eyelash curler here at the Shu Uemura U.S. Online Store here, if you live in the U.S.
