As an add on, many of you have also asked about lash glue and this really depends on the type of lashes you are working with (hard band vs. soft band). I tend to wear more of the later nowadays and my focus is on quick touch ups so the Dollywink Lash Glue with a brush wand applicator has been a favourite. For tougher lash bands, I would recommend the regular DUO or Ardell versions which have a thicker latex consistency. Now, off you go to get some fabulous lashes!
As a self confessed false lash snob, I am hard to please when it comes to finding the perfect pair of falsies. Many of what’s on the market today are just too big, too heavy and too fake especially if you have smaller eyes to begin with so I have always resorted to buying expensive Japanese brand lashes online. Well, I am delighted to finally find a pair that is not only comparable to some of my favourite Asian styles but at a price that you can really love.
Product: Looks So Natural Series* (Tapered End Lashes)
Variation: 5 Styles but may vary between countries
Price: $4.97 CAD / $3.99 USD
Availability: Drugstores Nationwide (spotted at Walmart & London Drugs)
Would I (re)purchase: Already have!
With the release of these KISS Looks So Natural Lashes, I can finally stop panicking every time I run out of my usual false lashes. In fact, these have currently replaced my Japanese style lashes for everyday wear and I have actually gone out to the store to pick up a few of the other styles. The lash band is a little delicate so do handle them with care but I have already re-worn them 5-6 times and can probably still get a couple more uses out of them. A few of the styles are especially excellent for small eyes and at $5 a pop, I am totally in love.
Brand: Magic Magic
Style: “Circus” Series | AC-03
Details: 2 pairs/box
Variation: 4 types available
Price: $20/box | On SALE now $16
(Free international shipping for lashes)
Adorably boxed in it’s circus themed pastel box, this series of false lashes is the premium line created by Magic Magic. Each package comes with two pairs of lashes carefully presented in their own display box. Not only is this line adored by bloggers but models from some of my favourite Japanese magazines have been known to use them as well for that impeccable lush lash look.
For the design, durability and the pretty effect this gives, I think these Magic Magic Lashes are well worth your money. If you are used to wearing “invisible band” lashes then these will not be as comfortable but if you have monolids especially then these plastic backbone lashes will be a much better option as the firmer base will prevent the lashes from being pushed down and drooping. While I have yet to compare them side by side, the touch and feel of the Circus series is almost identical to the much more expensive mink Velour Lashes.
My personal preference?
The Dollywink “Sweet Cat” is more comfortable to wear for long periods of time and does not require any trimming for my eye shape and the type of makeup I wear on a daily basis. However these come in at a very close second place, the effect is quite similar and these are something I would recommend (over the Dollywink) if you’re weary of handling very delicate lashes or if needing more lift either with hooded eyes or monolids.
If you’re looking for an easy way to enhance your everyday makeup look, I have already reviewed the Fairy 1 Day Princess lense which gives just a tint of colour to your eyes and will pair beautifully with these lashes for a polished feminine makeup look. More to come, I’ll also be reviewing the more dramatic and fun Holi Cat lenses so stay tuned!
I never expected to feel this way over a pair of lashes but quite honestly I am besotted with this amazing pair of falsies from Dollywink. Adding this to my shopping cart from my last Sasa order, I thought I’d try it to see what the fuss was all about and I’m so glad I did. Created and endorsed by Japanese model Tsubasa Masuwaka (you may remember her blush I reviewed previously), false lashes were the building foundation of her successful cosmetics line. Today I want to show you her second series “Otona” lashes, which simply means a more “adult” or grown up style as opposed to the more dolly and gyaru feel of her previous series.
Product: Otona Lashes #10 Sweet Cat
Variation: 13 styles for both top and bottom lashes
What’s inside: 2 pairs of lashes and lash glue
Price: $14-20 CAD
Availability: eBay, Ichibankao online, SaSa online, possibly your local Asian supermaket
Would I repurchase: Absolutely yes!
Have you tried any of the Dollywink lashes?
What did you think?
Today’s post kicks off a whole bucket of reviews I have lined up for Tsubasa Masuwaka endorsed beauty products (both Candydoll and Dollywink items) because I have just been obsessed with trying out products from her lines recently. It started off with one little blush and has now grown to a pretty solid stash (as seen on my Facebook). I thought I’d start off this round with this Dollywink Lash Fix which is one of her best selling products right along those famous false lashes.
Product: Eyelash Fix (clear)
Having been a false lash lover for years, I’ve come to accept that there aren’t very many options for lash glue here. You’re either an Ardelle Lash Grip girl or your a DUO lash glue faithful (see my comparison review here) but there were certain things about both these items that drove me nuts. One was the smell and two was the fact that they tended to separate after a while, leaving you with part liquid and part latex glue.

Hi there Everyone,
For everyone who are looking to start beefing up their basic/simple makeup kit, here’s a little video about makeup “add on” items. These are products that will make your kit so much more fun! And if you haven’t watched my “Starter Kit recommendation”, you can find that HERE.
- Add alitte something extra to your base, these items will take you from a light base to a full on glamour shot! Plus, a little shimmer is always good for that coveted glow.
- Shade your eyes with a matte cream shadow that can double up as an easy daily shading colour. And don’t forget to take care of your lashes at night with a protective serum.
- Whatever colour you choose, lipstick is so much fun and super easy to change up your look…oh yeah and totally more kissable than lipgloss.
- Palettes are your best friend when it comes to customizing just what you like in a handy little palette. Make a quad for different moods or take a 15pan palette if you are really indecisive.

Today’s post is a follow-up to my previous video on “How to choose false lashes”. This time, I want to share how to actually apply them since it does tend to be one of those things that can be quite intimating…
- False lashes of your choice
- False eyelash glue (waterproof ones are best)
- Tweezers are optional
- Small scissors to cut/trim your lashes
- Eyelash curler & mascara (this is optional, but great to do if you want that perfectly stylized and impeccable lash look.)
Here’s a look at the monolid eye
Here’s the double-eyelid eye
And here’s the video to show you how I did it
(including how to fix a falling eyelash)
I want to share with you some tips on choosing false eyelashes. Personally I wear them quite often but I can see how they can be really intimidating, especially with so many choices to choose from.
- #2 & #4 have different lash bands/backbone. #2 is easier to blend into your own lashes because the back is invisible and its also much more comfortable to wear. #4 had a hard plastic strip for backbone, very sturdy but not that comfy.
- #3, #4, #6 all have hard backbone as are probably the better choice if you have single eyelids and want to create the illusion of “doubles”.
- #3 and #6 have different methods of attaching the hairs, #3 is crisscross shape (for more volume) and #6 is straight (for more length only).
- #2 & #4 both have special accents to enhance the lash shape. #2 has clusters in the center to draw attention to the rounder part of the eye. #4 has spiky sections all over to give length without being too dramatic.
Please do share your favourite
