Karl Lagerfeld for shu uemura Eyelash Curler
How Many Eyelash Curlers Does One Person Need?
Karl Lagerfeld for shu uemura Eyelash Curler ($24.00) is shu’s famous eyelash curler with a vibrant red curling pad and mon shu charm attached to the handle. The charm is completely removable, and I’d recommend doing so–but shu said as much saying to “take this lovelyc harm along in your favorite bag.” If the red curling pad and the charm don’t do it for you, the original curler is $4 less. Either way, I’m a huge fan of shu uemura’s curler, and I have been for years! I’ve given it an award for being the best for the past three years.
What I like is the way the handles are shaped, so the grip is comfortable, while the curler is wide and gently curved to fit around all my lashes. It doesn’t pinch the skin, and it doesn’t crimp my lashes either. While I can’t vouch for this particular unit, I’ve owned two shu’s in my lifetime, and the only reason I bought the second was because I needed the curling pads. They’re well-made, and I’ve never felt that the spring has lots its power over time.
Eyelash curlers may be the most fun product to photograph, if only because they always look a bit like torture devices. And I’m sure to anyone who hasn’t been around one or used one often, they do look strange. No torture here, just prettily curled lashes, which make eyes appear larger and more awake.
