Shu Uemura vs. Shiseido Eyelash Curler

Hello bloggies ^_^!

Before I get into the post, I just want to thank you who responded to my last post :)
It's good to know that it's not just me who's experiencing the problem *wipes away sweat* and refreshing the page DID help somewhat... (why didn't I think about refreshing the page... I wonder... -__-|||) Well I guess I just have to check the updates manually XD

Moving on!

So today's gonna be a comparison post... as stated in the title :P

I started out with the Shu Uemura eyelash curler, and not until about 1 or 2 months ago did I realize I lost the filling, and very helpfully Shu Uemura's no longer available in US... #@$!!! So I had to go for an alternative. I went for Shiseido

On the left is Shiseido. The silver one on the right is Shu Uemura.
As you can see, Shu Uemura is a lot curvier than Shiseido.

At first I was NOT used to Shiseido at all! Because of how much flatter it is, I have to adjust where I position the eyelash curler before my lid. I kept pinching my lids at first (hadn't experienced that in yearss..... OUCH), but once I got used to it, I do like this eye lash curler =)

So Shu Uemura vs. Shiseido?

Personally, I have rather flat eyelid, so in my case, Shiseido fits me better.

If you're debating between the two lash curlers... if your have a rounder/more 3 dimensional eyelid, go with Shu Uemura. If you have a flatter lid then go with Shiseido =)

Seriously though I don't think it makes the biggest difference in the world... personally I can go with either one... it's not like Shu Uemura can't do its job. Even though Shiseido does fit my eyes better, I like them both! lol... they don't make too much difference for me.

Hope that's helpful to some of you?

I hope you guys are all doing well ^__^

  2. Thanks for the pics! I've always wondered what the difference between all the curlers available were lol I only tried 1 eyelash curler before and that was the one that came in the Costco brush set that I got last year (or was it two years ago..). I remember loving how it made my small lashes curled but really HATED how it would always pinch my eyelid no matter how I angled it =\ And I think once when I was trying to making it work without pinching my eye I pulled out an eyelash or two or more LOL

  5. nice review! I'm not sure if my eyes are curvier or not, but I guess they are? Either that or I just haven't positioned it correctly with my Koji curler because they pinch me. hahah Hope you are doing well! Looking forward for more posts! =]

  6. i've never tried either but always wanted to try both.. sometimes i think to myself i just cant pay 19 dollars for an eyelash curler.. i think i've had bad luck with mine. they are always misplaced or always break. i'm using the forever 21 now.. which is a dollar and some change.. lol

    if i were to pick one though.. i think i'd go with the shiseido one. from your review, it sounds like it would best fit my eye shape

  7. I really like the Shu Uemura one. My lids are very 'round' (cuz I'm a white gal, yo! lol xD) and it just fits perfectly. But after having had it for a while, I realized that it wears down easily and quite fast. It started breaking my lashes and pinching me a lot (which it NEVER used to do), so I'm quite upset about that : /

  9. to be honest, i have never realized that there are difference in eyelash curlers till this post!
    I always thought they were universal and just have different length ones! But this is so cool!
    Hmmm... I wonder which will suit me more... I'm just so use to my anna sui one and I guess it is more rounded than flat!
    Great post! I learned something new :D

  10. Ooh thanks for this review! I've had my eye on both of these eyelash curlers and I haven't been able to decide which to get, but now I have a better idea about them ^^ I think I might try to Shu Uemura one since my eye is not that flat and heaps of beauty gurus have raved about the Shu Uemura one :D

  13. when it pinches you & breaks lashes it means it's time to replace the pad of the shu uemura. after that doesn't work or after a while starts to pinch you need to get a new shu uemura one. They said the shu uemura should last up to 3 months of frequent use before you change to a new pad, and once that replacement pad runs out, get a new shu.
