Beauty | Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers

Never in a million years did I imagine myself spending £20 on eyelash curlers. But hey, I guess that's what 'beauty blogging' does to you. Once again, a product that's done its rounds on the blogs and can rightfully hold itself strongly under the 'cult product' category. I'd been eyeing up (no pun intended) the prestigious Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers for absolutely ages and now I finally have my hands on them.

Being known for the best set o'curlers around, I had mega high hopes for these - I mean, I'd spent twenty English bleedin' pounds on them. They look just like a regular curler apart from the brand engravement but boy, do they make some difference to your lashes. Once you apply the right pressure at the root of your lashes, they assist in creating an insanely good curl. I do three squeezes and hold the last squeeze for a couple more seconds for a bigger impact before applying mascara. I've also been using these on no make-up days too, just to give me a little boost. 

Everything that you've heard about this tool is true and I, hand on my heart, have been converted. I'd love to know if you're a Shu lover? Or maybe you're a bit skeptical about the price tag like I was? Let me know in the comments below, thanks for reading!

  2. I bought these on a trip to America when I was about 15 (after hearing them talk about them in The Devil Wears Prada haha!) so they weren't as pricey thankfully, but they've lasted me all these years and I love them so I'd say they're definitely worth the price tag :)

  7. Definitely skeptical of the price tag. I'm not sure how much they cost here in the states but probably around $35 based on that 20 pound mark. I just don't get that it would make THAT much of a difference! Maybe show pictures using a cheaper one and then this one?

  10. I love curly lashes so I'm hoping to buy Shu Uemura curlers one day. When my previous eyelash curlers broke, I was very tempted to get these but opted for Tweezerman instead.

  12. I really want to try these curlers out, I've heard so many good things about them! Perhaps I can justify spending £20 - it's a tool that will last me ages and do good for my lashes, right?! x

  13. They do sounds like miracle workers for the lashes but £20 ouch :/ I'm sure one day I'll bite the bullet & buy them.

  16. I find myself 'eyeing' the Shu Uemura eyelash curlers as well for the longest time because I have stubborn Asian lashes (short and invisible = NIGHTMARE) Even with mascara, my lashes are just in a bad state. I have a strong feeling that curling them beforehand will make such a massive difference when it comes to eventually applying the mascara. But the price always left me looking the other way. I'll make it my mission to buy it before the end of the year. The sooner I have it, the better.

    1. Haha oh no! They most probably will, it's worth asking someone at a beauty counter to try out some so you can see the difference! x

  17. I bought the gold ones, but I've not even tried them yet - I'm crazy I know. It is so funny what beauty blogging does to us isn't it?! Only a fellow blogger would understand our craziness xx
