On my last trip to San Francisco, I left my entire makeup bag on the plane, never to be seen again. Seeing as this bag contained all my favorite things at the time, I was devastated. Now, over a month since the incident, I am happy to report that I have resisted the urge to repurchase every thing in that bag. The only thing that I found I could really not live without was an eyelash curler.
Ok, I re-bought the MAC 239 also, but let's be real - that is a necessity.
I had been using the Shu Uemura eyelash curler for a while, and it had become a holy grail for me. I was painfully reminded of how good it was when I went back to my one dollar e.l.f one.
Shu Uemura is a little annoying to get in the U.S. now, and I didn't feel like paying for shipping, so I did a little research on the Shiseido one, which also has rave reviews.
I fell in love with this after one try at the counter, and immediately snatched it up. It fits my eyes even more perfectly than the Shu, so that I have complete control in getting to the roots of my lashes. You don't need to clamp down very hard to get a good curl; it is an amazing tool. The sleek graphite look is also really nice.
When I first got the Shu Uemura curler, I didn't think it was as special as everyone made it out to be, but with this one I can really feel and tell the difference. The Shu Uemura is fantastic, but this Shiseido curler is just one step above in my opinion. I love it so much, and can't recommend it enough, especially for asian eyelashes.
Let's just hope I don't lose this one on a plane...
Hope you're all having a lovely week!
