Older Girl Beauty

Shu, Fly, Shu…

Okay, why didn’t someone knock me up side the head at the beginning of last year and tell me I needed to get this, stat? I mean, yeah, I could read all the accolades, etc, but clearly that wasn’t enough to get me to do it. It took a damn Sephora gift card to finally make me cave.

And boy, am I glad I did. This little devil, by the renowned Shu Uemura, has made its way on to many a “Best of” beauty list and in the bags of makeup artists, beauty lovelies and editors everywhere, and deservedly so. The shape of this curler fits just right into my eye socket. It gets all of my lashes, so, no more moving around to make sure they are all curled, and so smoothly. If I had to say anything negative about this gem, it would be the fact that the finger holes are just a wee bit on the smallish side. Now, by no means do I have dainty digits, but I didn’t have any problem with my Revlon curler that I had long been used to using. So, that was a smidge of a disappointment, but all of the pluses certainly outweigh this little negative.
So, if you haven’t already got one of these in your stash, run out and get one now. Don’t be a silly girl like myself and deprive yourself of this any longer.

    Oh girl…I could’ve told you that one!!!! Glad you finally got it. I want the 24k Gold one….

  • Bionic Beauty

    I don’t even own a single eyelash curler… they skeere me. :D

    Josi girl, you know I wouldn’t have listened – I am just that stubborn. But, oh boy, I thought I was happy with my old one, but I def sure wasn’t. Ha. I was lucky enough to get this one, let alone a blinged out one. LOL

    Jami – I know, I resisted for the longest time, hence going with the cheaper first one. It was good to practice on, so I could appreciate this one, that’s for sure. Don’t be skeered – it makes your lovely Purely Cosmetics covered eyes just pop more. :)

    There is no other eyelash curler. Everything else is an imposter. I’ve used this in my makeup kit for over 10 years. It was my first real splurge as a pro makeup artist.

    I can completely understand – it fits my eye so well. I wish I had caved in sooner. :)

  • Style IT

    I finally bought out too, and I was SO skeptical – I mean, how the heck could one hunk of metal that looks like every hunk of metal actually make a difference – but indeed it does!

    I know! It’s crazy, ain’t it?

    So i totally went into Sephora yesterday and tried to buy this eye lash curler only to find out they were OUT OF STOCK lol! Oh how i was so disappointed!

  • oldergirlbeauty

    Oh no. :(
    I gotta tell you a funny, tho. My mom came in the other day and told me, “I have to show you what they call “the best eyelash curler in the world”", and she pulled out a Shu that she had ordered off of QVC. I thought I was going to bust a gut laughing. I told her that they were telling the truth! I love that she was coming to share that tidbit and tool with me. :)

    (sorry to take so long to get back with you on this) :)
