For the longest time, I’ve been a user of the most coveted Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler. I’ve never thought something can ever come close to it until I was able to try Shiseido Eyelash Curler. Which of the two is better? I know so many reviews have been written about the battle of Shu Uemura vs Shiseido eyelash curlers, but coming from a Shu Uemura user, let me share my views about Shiseido Eyelash Curler.


Shiseido Eyelash Curler vs Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler


  • The grip of Shiseido Eyelash Curler is almost the same as Shu Uemura’s. Since I have smaller fingers, I find Shiseido more comfortable to hold. Shu Uemura eyelash curler has slightly bigger finger grips, but it’s not much of a difference.


  • Shiseido eyelash curler is wider, making it a better choice compared to Shu Uemura if you have wide eyes. It also has shallower curve, which helps in avoiding eyelid pinches and in reaching even the smallest lashes on the corners of the eyes.
  • Both Shiseido and Shu Uemura eyelash curlers do not clump my lashes. They both give me natural looking lashes.

  • Both Shiseido and Shu Uemura eyelash curlers keep my lashes curled all through out the day, even without mascara.
  • Shiseido Eyelash Curler has a thinner pad, compared to Shu Uemura’s. It needs more pressure when clamping. Shu Uemura eyelash curler doesn’t need much effort when curling the lashes.
  • Both Shiseido and Shu Uemura eyelash curlers come with extra pads.

Both Shiseido and Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers have their pros and cons. I cannot really choose between the two as they both give me long lasting natural curl. For me, they come at par in this aspect. Now, it just depends on the shape of your eyes which fits better. For wider eyes, Shiseido Eyelash Curler would be a good option. Since my clients have different eye shapes, I now have both eyelash curlers in my traincase. 😀
