Now that I am experiencing longer eyelashes complimentary from influenster for testing purposes for the Fysiko eye lash growth serum I decided to invest in a better eyelash curler. I understand that the Shu Uemura eyelash curler was the best on the market, but unfortunately it has been discontinued. I have strong faith in Japanese engineered products and according to my knowledge the Shiseido eyelash curler also made in Japan is the next best thing so I decided to give it a try as well as one from Lancôme. Thanks to Nordstrom’s no return policy I can return the one I am not happy with. I noticed there is definitely a difference in the two. The Shiseido eyelash curler does not have as much curve as the Lancôme eyelash curler making me believe it may be customized to fit an Asian market. Testing the difference. While there is a difference in the way each eyelash curler is designed I didn’t find it a problem while curling my eyelashes.
There is also a major difference in the grip of each eyelash curler. The Shiseido eyelash curler is looser which is usually not to my liking while the Lancôme eyelash curler is much more firm. I like to think of it as when you need to replace brake pads for your car.
You may not be able to tell in my pictures, but in person the eyelash that I curled the Shiseido eyelash curler with definitely curled more than the one I used to curl the Lancôme eyelash curler with. I also noticed when I washed my face that night the eyelash that I used to curl the Shiseido eyelash curler with stayed curled. While I usually don’t like loose eyelash curlers and I assumed that because the Shiseido eyelash curler was engineered with less of a curve to suit an Asian market I am beginning to think that the purpose for it being designed that way is to grab more of the eyelash giving it a better curl and if that is the case I would not be surprised. I used to work for a Japanese company and their processes when it comes to designing and engineering is very thought out.
I hope you enjoyed my review.
