Fluttering Lashes with Koji Dolly Wink

If you read my Sunday post, you’d see a dramatic FOTD that I sported, complete with fake lashes. I do not wear lashes regularly. In fact, the last time I wore one was for another FOTD, just for this blog. I took it off right after I was done taking photos. That is why I do not know much about falsies. I was at Sasa the other day to hunt for a pair for my glitzy evening, and I settled with something called Dolly Wink.

 

I was looking for something wispy, not too dramatic, something flirty yet not over the top. I didn’t look further. This style is No.2 Sweet Girly and I like that there are 2 pairs. In case I somehow mess up, there is back up! You probably can’t tell in these photos, but the lashes look purple in certain lighting. It is either black gone wrong, or it is done that way – purple tinted black.

 

 

I haven’t tried anything from Koji before, and based on the photo above, I decided it would go well with my makeup. Luckily, I wasn’t too far off. The falsies are light and the band translucent, giving a more natural look to the lashes. The new bands were not too stiff so I didn’t have to put too much effort in making it fit the curve of my eyes.

 

 

I like that there is glue included in the kit. I do not have any lash glue at home, so this came in handy. However, this glue took a while to dry, and it dries white. It meant having to go through the lashes with eye liner after the glue dries. I also had some problems with the glue sticking properly, but after 2 tries, it stuck well. The length of the lashes were just right for me. I wanted it to extend a little longer so that I could elongate the shape of my dramatic eyes. For a more natural look, I’d probably trim it a little.

This kit sells for RM55.90 and there was a 10% discount when I bought it at Sasa. I thought it was a little pricey, but there were 2 pairs and the lashes removed well. I cleaned it and its shape is still good for a second wear.

Do you wear false lashes regularly or do you save it for special occasions like me?

    I have seen many of these lashes but I prefer them RM 10 per box (of 10 pairs) Taiwanese ones heh heh heh. They are cheaper and cause less pain when you know they can’t be used and have to be thrown away. ^.^

      That cheap? That shows how much I know about lashes. I saw some with stones too but I’m sure those will be very heavy on the lids. Are there any difference in quality between the cheaper and the more expensive ones?

        The band is more rigid and the lashes are not what you call natural. Those that are more expensive are wispier and less pointy and thick ^.^

        However, the stiffer the band, the easier to apply. heh heh heh

          Ah, I see… but these look really good on. Wispy but natural at the same time ;-)

    Oh wow these are really fluttery! I seldom ever wear false lashes. I’m not too good at it, and they just feel too heavy on! For very special occasions I can probably do that, but other than that I’m OK with a good mascara.

      I’m on the same page with you! No matter how light the lashes are, they will feel heavy on my lids because I’m not used to it. I still prefer a good mascara to lashes, but I know of some ladies who won’t leave the house without their false lashes. That, I think, is a little too much :-P

    Hello! I used to wear false eyelashes (natural) nearly every outing but it was too exaggerating. Hence, I only wear false eyelashes when I REALLY NEED TO like to formal parties, dinners, etc. Else I would just stick to a good ol mascara, WHO DOESN’T LOVE MASCARA? :)

      Hi Nicole, thanks for stopping by. What falsies do you use for natural looking lashes? Those that I browse are usually too stiff and blunt. And you’re right. Mascaras are useful, eh?

        I got it from Daiso because they have wide range of false lashes :D Also I sometime go to night markets to hunt for lashes, some of the stalls sell good quality lashes in cheap price! :D

          Oh, thanks for the tips, Nicole :-)
