I know that most people are aware of the Greatness of this item, but what kind of a beauty blogger would I be without mentioning Shu Uemura's eyelash curler? This is basically a staple in all professional make up artists kits. I'm not sure what it is that makes this curler so good, but it creates a great curl each time. I buy a new one every 6 months--the fear that it may wear out stems from a horrific event in seventh grade when I cut my lashes off with a cheap eyelash curler. I'm especially excited about this product right now because they come out with it in a limited edition gold color for the holidays. I feel a lot more glamorous when I'm curling my lashes with 24 karat gold!
