I think the very first time I heard of Shu Uemura as a brand it was because of their game-changer of an eyelash curler. It’s one of those few products that every professional declares as a holy grail product, and it’s not hard to see why!
Unlike other curlers I’ve tried, Shu Uemura’s is incredibly easy to use. It doesn’t trap eyelids in the mechanism, and it doesn’t create a weird kink in lashes. Before applying mascara I simply press the curler down gently on my lashes for 3-5 seconds, and I’m left with eyes which immediately look bigger, wider and more awake. The rubber guard on the curler feels bouncy, and the curl lasts all day.
As part of Shu Uemura’s adorable Christmas line, the curlers have been slightly updated with an adorable rubber stamp charm featuring a Lagerfeld sketch of his adorable ‘Shupette.’ The curlers come complete in a special pink box, and I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t adore these as a stocking stuffer!
The curlers cost £20.00 and are available exclusively at Selfridges.
