Shu Uemera vs. A Budget Eyelash Curler


An eyelash curler has always been one of those things that I've never wanted to spend a lot of money on, as it seems like more of a luxury indulgence than a necessity in my daily routine. When I did spend money on one, I went to Boots a couple years back and bought their modestly priced offering. Then the day came when I was given the Shu Uemera eyelash curler for my birthday and the way my eyelashes looked from then on changed for good.

Aside from the price (£20 vs. £4.50), the immediately obvious difference is the appearance and feel. The Shu Uemera curler is much lighter and has a higher quality pad than its budget counterpart. But I'm sure we're both not interested in superficialities and want to know about what really matters: the results. The real difference between the two comes from the staying power and drama of the curl. While the Boots curler certainly shapes lashes more than no curling at all, I find this curl often falls relatively quickly and by the end of the day I can't tell I've curled my lashes at all. In contrast, Shu Uemera gives you real WOW lashes that last all day and take forever to drop. 

However it's worth nothing that the Boots curler is much easier to use because it can open wider. With the Shu Uemera curler I often end up stabbing my eyelid in the process of trying to fit all my eyelashes in (and I'll be the first to admit that this is something I'm still getting used to).

So since using the Shu Uemera curler, a tool I never thought was a necessity is now something I can't leave the house without. If you're hesitant about spending £20 on an eyelash curler (as I was), think about how much use you'd get out of them and what a difference they make to your lashes. And while I'm a broke student who will welcome cheaper alternatives with open arms, when it comes to this I'd say go for the high end option.

Have you tried either the Shu Uemera or Boots eyelash curler? What did you think?
