Question
Do I CURL FIRST AND THEN APPLY MASCARA, OR THE OTHER WAY AROUND?

answer 1
I curl my eyelashes first then apply mascara. This practice works for me because I purposely don't want mascara on my eyelash curler. Yes, I clean my eyelash curler everytime I use it to remove the oil/eye primer residue.

answer 2
Curl your lashes first. This is best for a number of reasons: you'll keep the curler clean and you don't run the risk of lashes sticking to the curler and getting pulled out. So if you curl first and then put on mascara, then your mascara sets and holds the curl.

Generally it's recommended and easier to curl first, then apply mascara. However, if you have really short/fine lashes that are hard to grasp, apply mascara first then curl. Wait until the mascara dries first though!! Can't stress that enough.

Curl first and then apply mascara! Otherwise, if the mascara isn't dried yet, you could potentially pull your eyelashes...and that wouldn't be good!

You could re-curl your eyelashes after you make sure your mascara is COMPLETELY DRY.

I curl first, then apply mascara, to avoid making a mess of my eyelash curler. Also, if your mascara is sticky, it may stick to your eyelash curler and damage your eyelashes.

You curl first, then put mascara right afterwards. Usually it holds the curls better that way & less chances to pull your eye lashes out.

From my experiences, I would recommend curling first. Every time I have tried to curl after mascara it just ended up in a sticky, non curled mess. Hope this helps.

answer 11
Curl first, then mascara. You can do it the other way around only if you use a really tiny amount of mascara. Curling after a normal amount of mascara has been applied might cause your lashes to stick together and not look pretty.

Question
from 1-10, how "loose" would you describe this as?
usually when i use drugstore brand curlers, it feels very stiff, hence it doesn't really get the curl that i want. i'm looking for one that is looser and can curl my lashes without using a lot of effort. from 1-10, how loose would you describe this curler?? i'm also asian by the way.

answer 2
I don't find it to be extremely stiff and it works well with my very straight lashes. I'm not Asian, but my eyelashes and skin tone apparently don't know that. I will only use lash products and foundation colors geared towards Asian skin and this eyelash curler is just what you are looking for. You can get a decent grip on all your lashes with very little effort and it gives all day hold to the curl.

I'm asian as well by the way.
Compared to the drugstore curler that I was using, this is at least 10 times better.
It's def more flexible/ loose (but not to much to point that it can't catch the lashes) So would say 5-ish?
I have small asian almond eyes and I would say that they fit the shape pretty.
Give it a shoot! If they don't work then you can return them

I think I understand what you mean by "looser" and this curler gives a nice rounded curl, and doesn't leave sharp edge bend curls. Compared to the sephora curler, which would leave "bends" in my lashes sometimes, especially when a lot of pressure was used, this curler has been great at not doing that.

Other brands suggest to replace it so often and when I checked their product, my more than ten year old Shiseido eyelash curler looks more sturdier than the other brand. Just keep it clean and replace the rubber pad often and it will love you back.

I would say that would depend on your usage. I do recommend that you wipe off the curler each time you use it. This keeps the build up of makeup from distorting your pad. I also keep the curler in the box it came in when I travel. This helps from getting it bent and you will get alot more use out of it.

I have found that you actually DO get a better curl when you replace the rubber pad --the old one tends to break down and is indented by the metal pressing against it. The pads are packaged 2 for $6.00-which isn't bad considering what a great and consistent tool that it is.

I've had my Shiseido curler for over ten years (yikes!) and only have to change the pads. Still going strong!

I should change the pads a lot more often than I do, but I am guessing that if I was really on top of things, I should change it about once a year. (Definitely keep it clean though! You only get one set of eyes)

I have had my curler for 2 years.. with no problems. I do replace the pads every 6 months or so.. that's when I notice that they look a little worn out. There really is no reason to buy a brand new curler every 6 months... replacing the pads is a good idea though for hygiene's sake and to keep away nasties from your eyes (like conjunctivitis or foreign objects) hope that helped!

If you take care of your curler and gently wipe down the rubber pad with warm water and no harsh chemicals after every use, the pad should last you for over six months.

As for the eyelash curler itself, if you keep it at home and not toss it in your make-up bag, it should last well over a year. It also depends on how frequently you use your curler too. I've had a cheap eyelash curler from a large make-up company that has lasted over 10 years. I'm hoping that the Shiseido eyelash curler lasts just as long since I paid twice as much for it. Stay tuned...

I would recommend replacing the pads regularly simply for hygienic reasons. However, in my experience, there is no need to replace the curler itself unless it breaks. I haven't noticed a difference in the way it works over time as long as I continue replacing the pads.

They'll probably fit since they both curl the same. I love my new Shiseido eye lash curler and it works just as well as my "old" favorite, the Shu Uemura. I have tried many other eye lash curlers because I didn't like the idea that I had to purchase a new eye lash curler every six months, but then I always went back to the Shu Uemura because it worked so well...until I got the Shiseido. Go ahead and try the Shiseido refills if you want, but why not try the Shiseido curler too, it's just a good and they have refills.

This Shiseido lash curler has a flatter curve, so it's better for those with flatter eyes. If you have deep set eyes, perhaps try Shu Uemura's lash curler -- the curve is much rounder.

At first I was worried that the curve of curler was too shallow and might miss the lashes on the outer edges of my eyes, but it gets all my lashes and curls them beautifully. I think the flatter curve also somehow keeps my lashes together so they look fuller, and fewer fall out because they aren't being curled at an odd angle. Hope that helps!
