I’m back with a Dolly Wink review! I know I’ve been showering the blog a
lot with skincare and event posts that I felt that it was high time to
put makeup posts again. Today’s review is about one of my all time
favorite false eyelashes, Dolly Wink’s Natural Dolly lashes.
know a lot of people are deterred from purchasing Dolly Wink lashes,
especially if they do not know the brand, because of the price. But I’m
glad to say that it’s one of those things that cost a lot but last the
user a long time. I also got away with this pack because instead of the
usual two pairs, this pack has three pairs.
is the package of the product, and the image is the illustration as to
how the lashes would look when applied. Dolly Wink has a very, very
broad range of lashes that can really change the way one looks, which is
why it is super important to have these photos. The package says “Any
girl can become a doll!”– for those doll like patch type eyelashes,
this is for you!
is the label on the back. As shown by the price tag, I got this for
HKD84 (Php504) at the time. And at least these lashes are not made in
China, they’re made in Vietnam.
They even provided an eyelash usage guide!
now bringing up this image again because I did things differently. One
of the elements of gyaru makeup is to have long false eyelashes that
they go beyond the lashline and reach beyond the corners of the eyes.
For the gyaru look, there is an expectation to use lashes the way they
come from the package to give a dolly and droopy eyed kind of look. It
takes a lot of getting used to, and I feel itchy immediately whenever my
false eyelash pokes at my eye’s corner, which is why I trim the lashes.
is the actual case where the false eyelashes are. The other very unique
thing about Dolly Wink false eyelashes is that they have transparent
strips. If I’m not mistaken, they’re the first brand to make eyelashes
with transparent strips that other brands just had to follow. This
feature now enables people to really have the no makeup look because it
really will just contribute to the lashes. Eyelashes with black strips
sometimes end up looking like poorly applied eyeliner when there’s no
eyeliner on the eye, which is why this is such a unique and industry
detail on these eyelashes is amazing. Photos cannot capture the
precision on where the hairs are placed, how the fibers look and feel,
and how intricately made these are.
now it’s application time! I am the kind of person who slathers on a
lot of glue on the eyelash, because, well, there’s no such thing as
applying too much glue on your false lashes.
position how I’ll apply it. But beforehand, I’ve already fitted the
lashes. As in I took them, put them on my lashline, and made trimmings
based on my lashline’s width so that it’d just sit exactly on my
glue I used is their glue, and it dries up soooooo slowly. I honestly
do not understand why because Dolly Wink is made my Koji, the makers of
Spring Heart and Eye Talk. A lot of times when I use Eye Talk for my
false lashes, like I haven’t even settled applying the lashes onto my
lashline, the product has already dried.
to even think that Koji comes up with the best eyelash adhesives
hahahaha. But since it’s there already, I just stay patient and wait for
it to dry.
And for the spots that just won’t dry, I apply eyeliner so that it’d disappear, color-wise, on my lashline.
the effect after the lash is settled in is phenomenal. It really brings
life to the eyes, and the effect is just so glamorous yet natural.
This has been one of my favorite go-to lashes for special occasions because they just look so nice on the eyes.
