Maquillage Eyelash Curler

I had been using the same Shiseido eyelash curler for years and the metal was wearing out. Replacing the rubber edge again just wasn't going to cut it. While looking for a new curler at the drugstore, I happened upon Maquillage's Edge Free Eyelash Curler. I couldn't decide between purchasing another (regular) Shiseido curler or Maquillage's, so I asked the woman working at the counter what she thought was best. She told me I should go with the Maquillage curler since it's more suited for larger eyes with lots of lashes, and that it will catch all of my lashes, including the ones in the outer corners. She was right. While I had to curl my lashes in several parts and use a separate, mini curler for my outer lashes when using the regular Shiseido curler, the Maquillage curler catches all of my lashes quite well. It also does a better job of curling them even though they are thick and stubborn. If you have big eyes and thick lashes, I highly recommend the Maquillage curler. If you have smaller eyes and thinner lashes, the Shiseido curler would probably be a better choice. I still use an electric eyelash curler in addition to a regular curler since my lashes won't stay curled otherwise, but Maquillage has made curling them so much easier.

Hmmm... now I'm thinking if I should put this in my wish list because I've been a fan of Shu Uemura but I am curious about this curler. I have thick but short lashes and sometimes I feel like (when I use the Shu Uemur curler) not all of my lashes are curled. If you don't mind me asking, how much did you get it for? I hope I can find one online. :) Thanks En! :)

I don't remember the exact price but it was about 1000 yen.

If you can't get your hands on the Maquillage curler, you may want to consider a mini curler. They're more difficult to control and take a lot of getting used to but you'll be able to curl every single lash. I know Shu sells one and Shiseido has one, too.

Thanks for answering my question. I hope I can find one online. I'm afraid to use the mini curler bec I might not have even curled lashes... hehe Is there such thing? Thanks again En! :)

You can get uneven lashes, lol. I have shaky hands so I'm not very good at using the mini curler. I briefly mentioned it in my post but forgot to bring it up in the comment sections but I use an electric curler (http://www.amazon.co.jp/Panasonic-%E3%81%BE%E3%81%A4%E3%81%92%E3%81%8F%E3%82%8B%E3%82%93-%E3%82%BB%E3%83%91%E3%83%AC%E3%83%BC%E3%83%88%E3%82%B3%E3%83%BC%E3%83%A0-%E3%83%96%E3%83%A9%E3%83%83%E3%82%AF-EH2351PP-K/dp/B001MBV4MO/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&s=kitchen&qid=1235660041&sr=8-7) after using the regular eyelash curler and it really helps with any uneveness and the curl shape. If your lashes are really stubborn, investing in an electric curler might be something to think about.
