Lil Miss Curly: Shu Uemura eyelash curler review

Hi guys, I'm so sorry I haven't blogged in a while! I've started my new job and I've barely had any time for anything! I've finally settled down now, so I should be posting more often!

Moving on to the eyelash curler, I've wanted a Shu Uemura eye lash curler for nearly a year! It's one of those cult products that everybody talks about. When my previous eyelash curler broke, I knew I had to splurge on the Shu Uemura eyelash curler.

The low down?
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler. The iconic Shu Uemura eyelash curler featuring enhanced design and upgraded features for ultimate precision that delivers the perfect curl. Upgraded silicone pad in a new mushroom shape provides a protective, stay-put edge for improved safety and optimum curl. Upgraded patented hinge with precise engineering applies perfect amount of pressure on eyelashes. Curved angle suits all eye shape. Calculated shape and size of frame length and ergonomic handles ensure stability and control. Source

Was it worth it?

Yes! Even though this eyelash curler is a whopping £20, I'd say it beats any eyelash curler I have ever tried. I never knew that my eyelashes would curl so high and look so natural at the same time! Also, none of my lashes were left out - it really is worth it. You barely need to apply any pressure - one squeeze is enough to see a noticeable change in your lashes.

Any downsides?
The only problem with this product is that you cannot buy replacement pads for it! There is one replacement given when you purchase it, but other than that, you're expected to buy a new one after 6 months. This is a total rip off! I intend on using mine for longer! I've had this product for several months, and the pad is in good condition, so Shu Uemura have exaggerated a little bit! 

Where can you buy it from?
I purchased mine directly from a Shu Uemura stand in Selfridges. You can also purchase it from House of Fraser, Amazon, Ebay (watch out for fakes!) and Buya Powa (for a mere £14)

Have you tried this product?


  1. I don't really use a lash curler =X But this was a great review!!!

    Have a great day!


  2. Love my Shu curlers! Did you know they have the limited edition 24ct gold plated one out at the mo, definitely will be snapping that plus Karl Lagerfeld has a collaboration with Shu coming out soon and it features a mini version which I will also be snapping up lol. Can you tell I'm a fan :)) xx

  3. I have this too, don't think I'd use any other eyelash curlers now.


I love reading your lovely comments, they make my day :)
