Some of you may think that all eyelash curler are same, but I don't think that all eyelash curlers are just same - they do come in (almost) same shape indeed - but there will be some points which determined the difference, the quality.
When I look for an eyelash curler, it should be a very comfortable one with fine handle and good quality of rubber pad.
I've been searching for a HG eyelash curler which won't hurt my eyes either pull out or pinch my lashes inadvertent while using an eyelash curler. My searching was end when I found this Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler.
On the front side of the packaging box, you'll find an illustration of Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler. By the way, I like the white coloured box. Somehow it looks neat and professional and uh oh I love white color <3
On the back side, you'll find a short description about the products and also directions for use. It also comes with illustration which make you easier to understand the steps.
On the side box, you'll find some warnings and info when you should replace the pad.
The warning is also written in Japanese language.
I bought this baby at Shu Uemura's counter in Mall Kelapa Gading. It costs IDR 250.000 or $22 for an eyelash curler and 2 rubber pads (one additional rubber pad is included in the box).
The colour of the curler itself is just so so for me (because I do love something in pink or colourful ones). Comes in silver coloured all over the body with black rubber pad - this is the classic Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler. You also can get it in gold for IDR 300.000 or $26.40.
Unfortunately, I was thinking that it just wasting if I add IDR 50.000 only for a gold coloured even I want the gold one so bad (´･ω･｀)

With its sturdy mechanism hence a secure grip, flatter curve and squishier rubber pad, this curler will catch and curl every lashes, not pinch or pull it out.
I think Shu Uemura specifically designed this eyelash curler for people with straight, stubborn and so-Asian lashes. So guys, let's rejoice that now we have something to meet our needs! (^-^*)/
The brand itself "shu uemura" is embossed on the back of the curve. This is such a statement of a
Look from above, the rubber pad looks so pillowy. It really makes me comfy while curling my lashes indeed. It doesn't hurt my eyes either pinch my lashes. It just different with unbranded or drugstore brands.
While the drugstore one curling with (sometimes) pulling out my lashes after usage, this one is just curling my lashes - that's all. Even after many times of usage, it's only done its job - curling the lashes, without pinching or pulling it out. Then mascara will take the rest - volumizing and or lengthening.
FYI, Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler will last up to 5 years (daily usage) with 2.5 year for each rubber pad. Or up to 3 - 4 years for each rubber pad if you rarely use it.
My upper lashes are naturally short and straight. With the magic of Shu Uemura eyelash curler, they can be better. After curling my lashes, now I have tapering lashes (but still short haha).
It's so comfortable using this curler and it won't hurt you (read : your eye lashes) at all. Even it's such a pricey curler, but it will last for at least 5 years and the price really means its quality. You should give it a try and feel the difference :)
