Chanel Eyelash Curlers

chanel eyelash curlersYes, you heard me right. Chanel. Eyelash curlers. I think that I might just have to relax my ‘no curlers except Shu Uemura curlers come near my eyes’ rule. These are sleek and chic and actually work extremely well. (Read HERE to find out why Shu Uemura rule the lash-curling ‘roost’.) They give a great curl and you only need to squeeze very gently. Like the Shu Uemura it would be difficult to squeeze too hard unless you were completely devoid of feeling in your hands. It’s pretty obvious how much pressure you need to apply because the rubbery pad fits firmly and safely against the top part of the frame. Which is what sets quality curlers apart from cheap ones. Again, see HERE for horror stories.

I have both the Shu Uemura and the Chanel curlers in front of me right now, and they are pretty much identical. Apart from the colour, and the fact that one has “Shu Uemura” engraved on the frame and the other has “CHANEL” printed on it. The Shu feel very slightly heavier, but overall, if I was positive that I couldn’t get sued, I would tentatively suggest that these lash curlers could almost possibly (maybe!) have been made from the same mould/pattern/template. Obviously I would never come out and say such a thing, but just in case you were worried about using a non-Shu curler, I wanted to put your mind at rest… They’re pretty similar-same.

Being such an important part of every girl’s kit, I would say that to own two pairs of eyelash curlers is by no means extravagant or excessive. So here’s what I would suggest: Shu for at home, Chanel for the makeup bag. Show them off. Get them out on the train, in the office, at the gym, at the post office. Hang them around your neck as a pendant, pin them to your lapel as a brooch. Frame them, put them on a marble plinth in the drawing room, place the on the dressing table in the glare of their own, personal spotlight.

The ‘Precision Eyelash Curler’ is available on counters nationwide from the 15th April and will cost £21.

    I’ve been watching your youtube channel for ages but i cant believe i havent checked out your blog till today! i love it! xx

  3. Love this post, just got my very own!

  4. Love these! I was going to buy a new pair of shu since mine have finally fallen a part, but I’ll get these instead. :) So excited. Yay!

  5. Thanks Ruth, I will try it.

  6. Me too. A pair of Chanel eyelash curlers would probably persuade me to ditch the pair I’ve been using since about 2001, which I’m sure only have a psycological, rather than actual curling effect!

  7. It sounds so shallow but I would totally just buy these because they’re Chanel! Quite surprised by the price… I thought it’d be a lot more expensive xx

  8. Uh oh, won’t be able to resist. Such a sucker for the C word!

  9. i wonder if this will come to the states? i currently use the shu and love it but i’ve been wanting to look for something new. thanks for sharing!

  10. Hi Ruth,
    I had bought the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler (thanks for the link)but I have the feeling that they don’t curle my lashs. I have no clue what I’m doing wrong?

    • Some people have stubborn lashes that won’t curl! Try heating the curlers a little with the hairdryer before using – GENTLY though, test that the curlers aren’t going to burn you before putting them anywhere near your face! Curl gently once near the roots and then move the curlers to halfway along the lashes and gently curl again. x

  11. I will definitely be purchasing! Do you know if Chanel will be selling replacement pads? I wish Shu did.

  12. Ruth, the links don’t work, well no for me

  13. I can’t justify it, as my old pair work just fine, but I want!

  14. I just bought the shiseido by accident (I was going for the shu and got confused and overwhelmed in the cosmetics area!) I will have to try this, since I wanted the shu to start, but I have to say the shiseido isn’t bad at all compared to the drugstore version I was previously using. Have you planned on testing some Chanel mascaras? I am very curious about them!!

  15. I nearly choked- CHANEL eyelash curler? Rich. <3

  16. Have been building my Chanel collection recently and these curlers defenitly need to be added! Thanks Ruth x

  17. Just the name Chanel makes me wanna purchase it:)))
    Great post Ruth thanks for sharing:)
