There are some things you have to spend (a bit) much to get quality results. One of those are eye lash curlers. You see, I have undergone a LASIK Surgery last 2012 (more on that HERE), that is why I take eye products seriously. Though I got a heads up from my eye doctors that I am free to resume my normal lifestyle, I guess it wouldn't hurt to take extra care of our peepers.

One of my lovely friends (Heya Mamey Annie) went to Japan just recently. Knowing that the prices are more affordable there than PH, I asked her a favor to please buy me an eyelash curler. I first saw this when I got to attend a Kiss and Makeup Workshop at Shu Uemura last year.

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
Cost: About Php 600 in Japan (Php 1,000 in Manila)
Contents: Curler and one extra silicone refill pad 
Available Colors: Gold and White Gold

♣ Tip: Curl your lashes first before applying mascara :)

Why are they important, again?
Sure, it's not a matter of life and death, but learning to curl your eyelashes is the quickest and easiest way to make your lashes look fuller and thicker. Some of us were born with a natural curl to our lashes, but for those of us who were born with straight or limp eyelashes, reaching for an eyelash curler is a necessity. A good eyelash curler instantly lifts eyes and makes them appear more open. (Source).

Out of all the products, why Shu Uemura?
Ask Mr. Google what's the best eyelash curlers and you'll get Shu Uemura by landslide victory. In fact, unlike most in its category, this tool “is easy to hold and fits all eye shapes,” says L.A. makeup pro MeganLanoux. And it legitimately curls (not bends or creases) lashes. (Source)

Shue Uemura only produces one eyelash curler, which is enhanced with features and functions. According to their product description, it has an upgraded silicon pad which ensures safety while getting that best curls as well as a patented hinge that helps control the pressure given to the lashes. with features and functions.

There's not much to review on this one. All I can say is I feel safe using this product, it didn't hurt even one bit and it delivers its promises. Except for the price, this is a perfect eyelash curler for every girl. Best paired with Majolica Majorca's Lash King Mascara. Review HERE.

PS: To justify this purchase, it has a long shelf life, so if I amortize the cost over, say, 5 years... it's a pretty good investment. Don't you think? Or you're not convinced?! Haha! Pagbigyan niyo na. I seldom splurge naman. ☺-CMK
