I have literally tried every eyelash curlers known to man kind. In case you didn't know, I have the worlds straightest lashes, the go down and so curling them is an essential step for me. A year ago I picked up the famous Shu Uemura curlers after reading so many good reviews about them. I was smitten straight away, they give a natural curl and hold the curl all day. The only problem when it comes to replacing the pads you cant buy them so you have to fork out another €20 for a new curler. Not exactly purse friendly. Then I discovered Kiko lash curlers, way more purse friendly and pretty much an exact dupe for the Shu Uemura ones and here is the low down.
First up is the shape, one thing I sometimes find with the SU ones is you can't always get all the lashes on the pad, especially the lashes near the edge of your eye. Where on the other hand the Kiko ones are little less curved and so grap all the lashes. In terms of curling the lashes, both curlers give the same results, natural, no kinks, great curling staying power and feel good to curl with (not pulling on the lashes). The pads on each curler both feel the same on the lashes, both cushy and bouncy.
So lets sum it up. First off the Kiko and the Shu Uemura curlers both give a good curl to the eye so there is no difference in the results they give. One thing I would say is different between the two is the shape. I do find myself liking the Kiko version more as it gets all the lashes where as the SU sometimes doesn't.
So for this one its a definite save. Don't spend €20 on a lash curler save yourself some cash and opt for the cheaper Kiko Version (€5.90), same results and more money left in your purse.
Have you tried either lash curlers?
