No matter what eyelash curler you own — a Revlon cheapie or the Shu Uemura champion of coil — every three to six months, the curler’s pad will inevitably wear out and need to be replaced. Which is why the Power Curl by Japonesque is, as far as I’m concerned, the most overlooked, undervalued eyelash curler on the market. With rounded, silicone pads and a gentle arch, it easily stands up to the Shu Uemura—plus it comes with free replacement pads for life. Life. And by free, I don’t mean, “plus shipping charges.” We’re talking zero dollars and endless days of pristine lashes.
