Revlon has updated their lash curlers. The Revlon Extra Curl Lash Curler is really on par with Shu Uemura now... in my opinion. I am absolutely in love with this lash curler! It doesn't pinch your lid at all yet it gets a firm hold of your lashes and curls them seamlessly. The pinching is a problem I find with less expensive curlers ie: ELF or the like. I honestly don't find much of a difference between Revlon & Shu Uemura which is fantastic considering Revlon's is less than half the price.
Shu Uemura is $20 and Revlon is $7.99. I love when I can share a true bargain all the better when the quality exceeds expectations!
