I still have no proof that Tabs was involved in the disappearance of my Shu Uemura lash curler earlier this year, but he’s still the number one suspect.
Every time I ask him about it, he gets all evasive, all nonchalant like, “doopdadoo. Weather’s nice.”
Yeah…well I’m on to you, Tabs. I’ll figure it out.
The day it disappeared, I nearly lost my mind. I was crushed. It took me 20 years and probably a dozen different brands to find a curler as great as Shu, and no device had ever curled my lashes that well.
That is, no device until now.
Ever since Shu Uemura pulled out of U.S. stores, the line has gotten tougher to find. Sure, there’s still their website, but if/when the replacement Shu lash curler I picked up after its predecessor’s disappearance ever mysteriously vanishes, too (I know it was you, Tabs!), at least I now know of a worthy replacement.
And it lives at Target stores.
New for fall, the $12.99 limited edition Sonia Kashuk Curl Up Eyelash Curler has a few great traits in common with my beloved $19 Shu.
Like Shu’s curler, Sonia’s fits the shape of my eye like a glove, and it doesn’t pinch the outer edges of my fringe (something that many other lash curlers do).
But that’s not what I love about it most. That distinction goes to the tension, which is downright perfect. I barely have to squeeze the handles to get a great lash crimp every time — just like the Shu!
Don’t me wrong. I still got mad lurve for my Shu, but it’s nice to know that a great alternative is only a Target trip away.
Fellow procrastinators, please note. This lash loving Lothario is limited edition, so if it interests you at all, you might not want to wait too long before bringing it home.
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Target stores and also online

I missed Missoni…
Speaking of Target, did you end up getting anything from their limited edition Missoni line? I’d planned to check it out back on Tuesday, but then time got away from me and I just sorta forgot. Then, when I swung by the store yesterday on a Fancy Feast run for Tabs, there was virtually nothing left. It was like a fashion hurricane tore through the store and only left a handful of size 10 brown suede pumps and a couple of baby ponchos behind (and an ugly blanket that I came THIS CLOSE to bringing home anyway just because…).
No Missoni for this girl, le sigh.
