Product Review: Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

The Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler acquired cult status years ago and is still the top selling curler today.  This is one of my most essential beauty tools and it still gives my lashes great curl after years of use. At one time it was sold in stores but now you can only get it direct from Shu Uemura for $20. Follow Mad Chipmunk on Pinterest
