Lashes: Curling Throwdown I


the orient express
Eyelash curlers are like people. No one is looking for the same thing...there are gold diggers (all looks and no substance), cheapskates (not just made in China but bought from Chinatown), heartbreakers (everything was going well until it broke and took some of my lashes with it), and of course, good ones (oh, love).

Here are four of the most talked about (in my circle of chatterboxes) that cater to Asian eyes.



From Left to Right:
Missha $8 - Shiseido $21 - The FaceShop $6 - Shu Umera $21
 
Let me break it down – cue music:

1 (crap) to 5 (super)

Full/secure contact of bridge to eye line aka ‘it grabs lashes, not skin'

The FaceShop 4
Missha 2
Shiseido 4
Shu Umera 3

Provides an even curl aka ‘bent eyelashes are not cool’
The FaceShop 4
Missha 2
Shiseido 4
Shu Umera 3

Is it gentle on lashes aka ‘please don’t hurt me’
The FaceShop 3
Missha 3
Shiseido 4
Shu Umera 4

Quality of mechanics and curler ‘the 100th pinch is as good as the first’
The FaceShop 2
Missha 1
Shiseido 4
Shu Umera 5

Longevity of curler (including rubber padding) aka ‘the center joint and padding don’t wear out before 3 months’
The FaceShop 3
Missha 2
Shiseido 5
Shu Umera 5

Survey says?

Shiseido.
