FRIDAY FAVORITE: Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

shu uemura eyelash curler

Want beautiful baby doll lashes?  You need an eyelash curler.  Curling your lashes should be an important step in every girls makeup routine and it really makes such a difference, making eyes appear more awake.  (See the serious impact in the before & after picture below.)  I know some may be lucky enough to be graced will naturally curly lashes, but sadly that is not the case for most of us.  So for this week's Friday Favorite I am sharing with you my favorite eyelash curler of all time.  May I introduce to you the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler.  This baby is the best on the market and has been my ride or die for the past three years.  It has held up so well, and all I need to do is replace the curler pad every six months or so.  (The Shu Uemura curler refills can be hard to find, so I usually buy the Shiseido ones and these work just as well. You can purchase them at Sephora here.)  This beauty tool, dubbed the “Cadillac of eyelash curlers” gives me a curled and defined lash with one pump even getting those itty bitty lashes on the outer and inner corners.  Before finding the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler I had tried every drugstore curler out there and they were just awful for me!  They would pinch my eyelids, pull my eyelashes out, and would barely curl my lashes.  Talk about a dud.  That is not the case with the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler.  It is so comfortable to use and has never pulled at my lashes or tugged at the skin around my eyes.  I seriously can't recommend it enough!  Ever since using this curler my lashes stay curled and looking perky all day long and I can't imagine doing my makeup without it now.  The Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler retails for $20.00 and can be purchased through Shu Uemura’s website and on Amazon

Quick Tip:  If you have trouble with your lashes staying curled throughout the day an industry tip is to apply a thin layer of waterproof mascara to your lashes immediately after curling them.  Let this coat dry and then apply your favorite mascara.  By doing this extra step it will keep your lashes staying curled all day long. 


So that is it for this week’s Friday Favorite.  I hope you enjoyed this post and will try the Shu Uemura Eyelash curler.  (It is life changing, I swear!)  The weather has been absolutely gorgeous here in Florida, around mid-70's, so I definitely plan to take advantage of it this weekend.   You can find me lounging by the pool soaking up some rays and reading the second book in the Divergent Series.  (Sorry North Easterners, don’t hate me!) I hope you all have a lovely weekend and I will see you back next week!

  1. Ok first of all I dare you to brag about your Florida weather one more time!! At this point you're just being cruel...it is currently -6 with a windchill of negative. thirty. degrees. fahrenheit. Is it too late to book a flight to Tampa for this weekend??

    I currently use an eyelash curler I grabbed from the checkout line of Forever 21 sooo....might be time for me to upgrade.

  2. I love this curler so much! I have baby eyelashes so this helps somewhat make them bigger but I really like that tip of adding waterproof mascara to make them bigger! I'll definitely do that next time :)
    Also, so jealous of that amazing weather you're having!

    & thank you so much for being so sweet and leaving such lovely comments on my blog. You have no idea how much it brightened my day and made me feel loads better.
