With that peculiar blend of bizarre and coveted, I wanted some; sitting on my vanity, baffling the uninitiated, adding an air of medieval torture to my beauty regimen.
If you are going to get a pair at all you might as well get a good one (sometimes a cheap version of a thing will serve…but this is not really one of those times), and that means Shu Uemura. I went for this special edition pair with the cute/crazed/terminator-esque mon shu charm.
Many report eyelash curlers as their #1 beauty step (Really. I have heard them. The idea is that they make you look more awake and alert, and maximize the visible surface area of your lashes.) but actually I think my eyelashes are naturally pretty curled already. Making this acquisition that much more frivolous.
“An upward looking eyelash propels your happiness upward!”, Shu Uemura informs me.
Well, shu, we shall see.
