Fanny Serrano Curler Refill and Angled brush

I am using Shiseido's lash curler and I've asked the Shiseido SA before how much a rubber refill would cost. I think it's around PHP 500-600 (USD $ 10-12) for 2 pcs rubber per pack. Which is just expensive. I really don't need to buy a refill just yet, because I still have one extra. But today at Watson's, I was just looking around when the rubber refills for Fanny Serrano's lash curler caught my eyes. They looked almost the same (or that's what I thought just because they're black) as Shiseido's and I tried it on my lash curler if it would fit, and it did. I bought one pack for PHP 45 I think (USD $ 1). And tried to compare it with my Shiseido rubber when I got home.

So here's how it looks like. The one on top is the Fanny Serrano rubber refill and the one at the bottom is Shiseido's rubber refill. Just by looking at it, you can tell the difference. The Shiseido's slanted and the shape is more curved. And I think it's harder when I try to press it. I actually tried curling my lashes with the Shiseido Curler using the Fanny Serrano rubber. I don't know if I am just being biased but I noticed that it kind of gives me a harsh L shaped lashes instead of the curvy shape. But I think it's kind of okay. But I don't know. I'm not too happy about it. Anyone else tried replacing their Shiseido lash curler with a different brand of rubber refill?

And before I forget, I also got the Fanny Serrano angled brush. I tried using it once when I applied my EDM black eyeliner, it shed a bit but I think it's okay.

I haven't tried Shiseido yet, but the silicone pad of Shu Uemura is different with it too..

I got frustrated before when i lost my extra pad & im in dire need of silicone pad but to no avail, i can't find one..
so i just threw my Shu...

bad move...lol

so now, im saving to buy another Shu...
but Fanny Serrano works for the meantime...although it just a lot longer to curl..but it works & doesn't pinch my lashes

^_~

Oh too bad about the Shu curler. They should sell refills for Shu. It's too expensive to keep buying their curlers. =s

Hm...that's really expensive for a refill, but...quality is quality!

How much was the eyeliner brush? I need to get one for my new gel liner. :(

@Chrissy: oh I forgot to post the price.. It costs PHP150. =)
It's my first eyeliner brush, actually. Before I'd just use this flat type of brush that's not angled. I'm such a newbie I don't even know what that brush is called. LOL.
