Okay, so let's get one thing out in the open; this was a naughty treat for myself as I was in desperate need of an eyelash curler. I had heard nothing but raves and praises about the Shu Uemura eyelash curlers, so I decided to pop into good old Selfridges and indulge myself in a spanking new pair of eyelash curlers. However when I saw that they had a limited edition gold coloured eyelash curlers I just couldn't resist. Within the box you receive one pair of eyelash curlers and two separate removable white silicone pads in a mushroom shape which cushion the lashes when using this product.
You can simply apply with or without mascara, however if you are going for an eye opening, dramatic effect, I would advise to have mascara already applied. I find that using Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara and then using the eyelash curler gives a dramatic effect. However, of course it is personal preference as to which mascara you like. The Shu Uemura eyelash curler gives you wide-awake eyes all day, with absolutely no need of reusing. A handy step-by-step guide in also supplied on the back of the packaging whether you're a eyelash curler first-timer or you want to perfect the curl.
Not only do these eyelash curlers do-the-job; they also are undeniably beautiful to look at and fit perfectly into my cosmetics case. I like how the gold complements the other black and gold cosmetic products within my makeup case (OCD much?!). The eyelash curlers are easy to clean, given that mascara does quickly build up on the white silicone pad. I also think that for such an amazing product, £20 is a bargain for a high specification eyelash curler, as these limited edition gold Shu Uemura eyelash curlers have upgraded design and features, giving you even more of a uplift in your lashes. But if gold doesn't float your boat, Shu Uemura also offer silver eyelash curlers which are just as beautiful!
