Review: Comparision: Shiseido Majolica Majorca Lash Curler / Shu Uemura Lash Curler

Not many people know that Majolica Majorca has a lash curler available. Neither did I, until I bought a whole lot of Majolica Majorca and they gave me 10 as gift with purchases last summer. I believe they release one with each collection as I've seen the spring 2008 one and the summer 2008 one [which is the one I'm reviewing].

For the price [maybe like...three bucks haha!] you get a Limited Edition, [limited amount made], bronze, MJMJ 'Miss Treasure Hunter' [last summer's collection name] lash curler.

Do you think that I got scammed, that the lash curler is fake? I was skeptical too, but the box / Majolica Majorca emblazoned on it makes me think otherwise.

Okay...I'm not exactly sure how to review a lash curler as I never have before, but I will try to compare it to my shu uemura one.

The shu uemura one seems to have more of an angle than the MJMJ one does. It's also wider and has a more shallow curve.

The names embossed on the sides.

Majolica Majorca:

I can't really tell a difference between them! One thing to note though is the way I curl my lashes [not sure how you guys do it]. I press for 10 seconds at the base, then move the curler upwards to the middle of my lashes and press for 5 seconds, and then move the curler to the tip of my lashes and press for another 5 seconds. The shu uemura one has a bit more 'tension', so you don't have to squeeze the handles that hard to curl, but the Majolica Majorca one has alot less--you'd have to press harder.

Shu uemura recommends replacing their curler pads every 6 months [Shiseido sells refills that will fit the shu] and the entire curler every year [but who does that?]. They retail for 18$, and each curl lasts for an entire day.

Majolica Majorca curlers are extremely cheap, but I haven't encountered anywhere that really commercially sells it outside of select Asian drugstores [perhaps ebay?]. They definately retail for below 5USD$ though. Every curl lasts the whole day for me [please bear in mind that my lashes are very easy to curl] when topped with mascara.

I hope this review and comparision helped you all!

  1. I have never heard of a MJ curler either since they already have a Shiseido 213 and Maquillage over there but since Kanebo kate has one released at a gift with purchase anyway, so I guess it's silly to think it's fake just because we can't find it in US...

    I like curler in fancy colors though, it's cooler than the plain silver...
