I recently read online that Shu Uemera will no longer be sold or distributed in the U.S. This is sad, sad news for me since I love, love, love this brand's eyelash curler. It is truly the gold standard of curlers. So, if you too love this brand don't be caught unawares. Stock up now! I blew through some PayPal money I had sitting in my account and ordered a couple eyelash curlers.
