recently (as in two days ago) i decided to take a break from lash extensions. gasp! i know. it’s almost like i’m naked. it sure feels that way. but my natural lashes, and my bank account, needed a break.
and the only thing that made me feel okay about taking them off is knowing that i had this secret weapon available.
except that i couldn’t find it. anywhere.
i tore apart my bathroom, my husband’s bathroom, every spare makeup bag i own and all of my luggage. no luck. i’d lost it. both figuratively and literally. hehe.
so what’s a girl to do? of course, go to the source. back to nordstrom, to find my secret weapon.
imagine my horror when i saw this!!!
insert horror movie soundtrack!!!
apparently nordstrom stopped carrying this secret weapon of mine a while back. life as i knew it was over.
but then i remembered my saving grace. my one stop shop where i can (usually) find anything, and get it cheaper and faster and delivered to my door for free.
not only did i find my dear secret weapon on amazon, it of course was on sale. and it of course is going to show up on my doorstep tomorrow.
so without further ado, here is my #1 mascara secret weapon. the big gun of all big guns. the SHU UEMURA EYELASH CURLER. if you don’t own this, and you don’t have lash extensions, YOU NEED THIS. just trust me.
i promise on everything i adore that this is no ordinary lash curler. it will, i repeat, it WILL make your lashes look 1million times better than they ever have with any other lash curler.
and why did i name this my #1 mascara secret? because it will make any mascara the bomb diggity. and i know mascara is debatable and subjective to the user and we could be here ALL DAY LONG debating the best mascara of all time. but this eyelash curler, it just IS the best. and so whatever your cant-live-without mascara is, it needs this secret weapon lash curler to be its partner in crime.
and by the way, in case you are looking for a mascara recommendation, here are my faves:
L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara, Blackest Black, 0.3 Fluid Ounce
Benefit Cosmetics They’Re Real! Mascara
Maybelline New York The Falsies Volum’ Express Washable Mascara, Blackest Black, 0.25 Fluid Ounce
now. go get yourself your own secret weapon lash curler. and a new tube of mascara. and show me your lashes on insta or facebook if you try them out!
update: a couple people have voiced concern over the reviews on amazon that claim this could be a “fake.” i totally get it, that sounds scary. honestly, it doesn’t worry me much because it has 108/136 5-star reviews, and they clearly show in the picture how to tell whether you’re getting a fake. having said that, if you want to buy direct, you can get it from yes style, but it will cost you $28 instead of $17. i already placed my amazon order, and since i used my shu uemura lash curler for years i will be able to tell right away if it’s a fake. i’ll post another update when i get mine!
