When it comes to eyelashes, I have to admit I’ve always been a bit lacking in the volume and length departments. Essentially, I’m stuck with some seriously stubby lashes that tend to buckle under even the lightest layer of mascara. Any attempt to try and curl my lashes often ended in a lot of lost lashes and, in the end, I really just gave up on everything but a quick slick of mascara.
But when I saw that Shu Uemura, eyelash curler creators extraordinaire, had released a new ‘mini’ lash curler, the Shu Uemura S Curler, I thought it might be worth giving the curling thing another whirl. And boy am I glad I did.
The S Curler is aimed at offering a more detailed curling experience – unlike the original version which takes all the lashes in one big swoop, the smaller S Curler allows you to curl sections of your lashes bit by bit. Perfect for any other heavy-handed, light-lashed people like myself, or if you want to tailor your lashes to a specific look. Plump ’em all up for a wide-eyed effect, or just curl the outer lashes for a more subtle flutter.
No longer such a curling noob…. Ish.
