I happen to be a member of the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler cult. Ya know, we believe that Shu’s Eyelash Curler is a gift from the makeup tool gods and that no one else has created a curler anywhere near on par with it. Another words, Shu’s Eyelash Curler is the end all eyelash curler…once you start using it, you’ll simply never need another eyelash curler in your life because it does the job and does it well.
Sadly, the downside is Shu has failed to evolve and still, to this day, does not offer lash pad refills. You’ll get plenty of people who proceed to recommend refilling it with another brand’s pad but people, the pad, is where the magic happens!
I’ve actually always believed that the pad is the key to an excellent eyelash curler. You can take any old lash curler insert a really good pad into it and instantly you’ll get amazing results as far as I am concerned. Take a crummy, dense pad and suddenly you’re getting rubbish results.
However, one eyelash curler does prove that it a combination of the design of the unit and the pad is the key to the ultimate lashes you’ve experienced.
Koji Japan Makeup Curving Eyelash Curler is a pure miracle to the lash curling world. Once you use it, you’ll want to write sonnets about its abilities.
This is the ultimate in the eyelash curling world in my opinion. Shu does the job well for me and far be it from me to say otherwise but I’ve honestly gotten such crazy cool results from Koji Japan Makeup Curving Eyelash Curler, I think it’s safe to say, that yes, this is my HG (holy grail) Eyelash Curler of choice now.
The design is completely different from any curler I’ve used before as it has a slicker, longer body. The body of the curler has longer handles and has more of a straight line to it than a traditional curler. The cage also has a wider curve that fits the contour of my eye beautifully. I think the combination of the longer handles and longer, straighter cage allows for amazingly results. I find this grasps all my lashes perfectly and has the ability to pull them upwards and out for not only incredible length but also, somehow, someway it adds a bit of volume.
The pad is soft and cushy just like Shu’s but where I’d normally blame the pad on my gorgeous lashes, this time I’m blaming a combination of both the pad and interesting design of this curler.
I find that the curler handles fit comfortably in my hand, more so than other curlers. The size is necessarily double that of a regular curler but it is longer and straighter and I think the straighter body is what allows me to get super close to my lash line allowing for me to capture all my lashes which in turn offers incredible lenght.
Needless to say this one is a keeper. The slick body and soft, cushy pads give my lashes incredible length.
This one can easily take over any other lash curler you’re currently in love with.
Very recommended and Muse Approved for purchase.
If you haven’t had superior results from your eyelash curler allow Koji Japan Makeup Curving Eyelash Curler in your life and prepared to be amazed and delighted.
I got mine from AlphaBeautyUK for $19.95. It’s available as a limited edition set which includes a plastic holder for the curler and you can purchase refills for it.
One word, amazing!
