Sephora Eyelash Curler ($16.00) is a metal eyelash curler that comes with two replacement curling pads.  It does a good job of curling lashes without pinching or pulling, but shu’s curler ($19) still pulls ahead for me–and at the price tag, I’m not sold on Sephora’s. The biggest advantage that this curler has is that it has two replacement pads, as opposed to the one that shu comes with.

The curling pad seems a little thick on Sephora’s curler, which actually makes it easier to get a soft curled lash and no crimping or dreaded L-shape lashes.  But it doesn’t get as defined and as big of a curl because of it as well.  The padding on the handles is also a bit thick, so those with larger fingers may find it a little awkward to grip, because their fingers don’t quite fit in them.

Again, it does a good job–it curls softly, easily, and it doesn’t pinch or pull.  You never have to worry about getting bent lashes, either, because the pad makes it a breeze to get that soft curled look.  It just doesn’t give me the same amount of curl as my beloved shu curler does.

I love my Shu Uemura eyelash curler too. Do you happen to know if Sephora will stop carrying it now that Shu has pulled out of the US market?

Now, if only someone would create an eyelash straightener. My one eye has such curly lashes that they curl back sometimes. Getting mascara on is a pain!

How does the curve of the thing (sorry I don’t know the name of it- the thing with SEPHORA printed on it) affect whether it pinches or how it curls?
Sorry if my question is confusing, I’m not very good with words! :/

LOL! I was just at Sephora and debating whether this would be a good buy or not. Thank goodness, I set it down…Phew! I’m looking for more curl and more coverage of my lashes from my eyelash curler. Right now, I’m using the travel curler from Sophia Kashuk, which does curl more of my lashes than others but I hate how it pinches and has less padding.

I have this.. and I have problems with the pads staying in. 2 have gone straight and refuse to stay in, of course causing problems. I’ve had it for about 6 months. I don’t want to have to buy another one so soon. My MAC curler lasted about 3 years.

Hi Christine!
I actually have 3 shu uemura eye lash curlers. However, all the curling pads aren’t in the best shape. It’s weared off. Do you know where I could find the pad replacements? Thanks for your help!

Thanks for your review! I’ve just bought a replacement Shu curler while overseas, but I wondered if you’ve ever actually worn out one of the pads? The box says to replace the silicon rubber pads when worn, suggesting about 3 months with daily use, but I must admit that I can’t really see much difference between the pad on my old curler (never replaced in several year’s use!) and the new one. Do you think this might be a bit of a marketing ploy?

I’ve never replaced mine, though I don’t use it every day, but I’ve had mine for a couple of years now. I’ve heard from many that they haven’t replaced theirs, and certainly not within 3 months… if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! Unless you feel like you aren’t getting the curl you used to, I say curl on! 🙂

I think I broke my Shu, but it must be at least 3 years old. 😉 I replaced it not too long ago with the gold plated version of the Sephora curler. Works well for me except the gold plating has worn off on some of the parts.
