I Wonder: Do you need a Smaller Eyelash Curler?

Good morning and Happy Friday AMW Friends!
I am so excited it's finally weekend!  I used to love weekends but now, I appreciate it MORE because of my situation.  If you wonder, yes, I still suffer from morning sickness but I'm getting used to the vomiting and 24 hours headache so don't worry, I'm fine! :)

Since I'm home a lot!  I like to rummage through my "makeup stocks/hauls" to check on their expiration dates (again, I'm OC that way!) I pulled out a shopping bag from our last trip in Japan and guess what?  I nearly forgot about my Shiseido eyelash curlers!  I bought both sizes 213 (regular size) and 215 (smaller size).  I have been using a Shiseido and Shu Uemura eyelash curler alternately for quite some time and this is a repurchase.  The smaller version?  It's a first!


Back in April during our first Tokyo trip, I love to roam around cosmetics stores and one huge store (I can't remember the name, sorry) caught my attention as it has aisles after aisles of Japanese brands including Shiseido! I thought about eyelash curlers back up and picked a regular sized Shiseido Eyelash Curler without much hesitation.  As I was walking towards the counter, the cute smaller one caught my eye.  I walked back and stared at it for a moment.  I did want to purchase the Shu Uemura smaller lash curler for years but never really paid attention to it.

But do I really need it?  

Of course, with Mr. AMW around who nudged me and said: "Come on, you won't be back in Japan for a while, where can you buy  such inexpensive Shiseido stuff?" 

Alright, he twisted my arm so I gave in!  *laughs*


Okay, I've been a makeup artist for almost 5 years and I have been doing makeup for more than a decade!  I've survived using the regular sized eyelash curler without issues.  Do I really need a smaller eyelash curler?  Well, you have to wait for my review, I am just starting to use this after I nearly forgot about this!  *embarrassed*
I wonder:
"Do you need a smaller eyelash curler to get into those short lashes?"
Do you own one?  Is it worth the investment?


I'd love to hear from you!

    1. Thanks MicMic, I'll give it a good use and see how it goes and will write about it :D Are you interested with the mini version as well? I believe the Shu Uemura one doesn't look the same! This one is stoo.."straight"

  4. I bought a small eyelash curler from Fanny Serano last year but I don't know how to use it... (I keep on poking my eyes, huhuhu). A review and some tips would be very much appreciated hihi~!

  5. Actually, a smaller eyelash curler is a dream if you use false lashes a lot because sometimes if I like them long (aka don't trim the lashes to fit my eye exactly so I can give the illusion of bigger eyes), then a regular sized curler won't be able to curl the whole length of it.

    I use a regular one first (with my lashes), then I use the smaller one for any parts I missed that didn't fit into the regular one. :)

    1. Ah I agree, using them on false lashes would be great coz you can control which area you would like to magnify the "curl" :)

  8. I have the FS mini eyelash curler. It's perfect for me since I can curl my lashes sections at a time - no more pinching at the corners (which happens to me even with high-end curlers)

    1. Ahhh noted! :) There are certain eye shapes that's really difficult to work with a full sized lash curler! :)
