I've never been a slave to eyelash curlers, mainly because I've never thought they were particularly good. However, that was before Shu Uemura's famed pair graced my makeup bag. I picked these up in Liberty. The sales assistant let me have a go with a pair to see if they suited me and their effect was immediately apparent. Lashes like you wouldn't believe! Far superior to all the cheap pairs I've gone through over the years. They cost £20 but I hope to have them a long time.
However, I waited until I'd had my eyelashes tinted to take these pictures as I found that mascara seems to 'drag out' the curl somewhat. Does this render eyelash curlers entirely pointless? I'll leave you to ponder that. Here are some before and after photos and a small lesson in the benefits of eyelash tinting for the pale-eyed among us...
Update: It's now the day after I took these photos. I wore no eye makeup yesterday; my right eye's lashes are still perfectly curled. Acers!
