Dolly Wink No.2 Sweet Girly

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

The first kind of Japanese brand lashes that I ever tried was Dolly Wink, but I haven't used any Dolly Wink products at all lately. Once they released their new collection and repackaged their eyelashes I decided to try them out again just to see if I still like them as much as I used to.



As probably already know, the packaging is completely different from what it used to be. I personally like the old packaging a lot better since it was cuter and more quirky. But Dolly Wink has gradually gone from the cute concept to a more mature one for a while now. I don't really care about packaging tho; I'm just glad that the original design of these lashes is still the same. I've heard both good and bad opinions about the Dolly Wink Eyelash glue that comes with the lashes, but I personally think that it's really great. I haven't had any problems with the lashes coming off, but the glue is still really easy to remove from the lashes after use.

Design & Quality

These eyelashes are natural looking and very soft. The quality is actually very good; you just have to be careful when cleaning them. Mine have lasted quite some time now! I usually don't like natural looking lashes, but these look really pretty together with the right kind of makeup, lower lashes & lenses. They would be perfect to wear alone with simple makeup if you want to go for a natural & girly look tho.

I personally think that Dolly Wink lashes can be a bit overrated, but these are definitely my favorite ones when it comes to natural looking lashes. Like I mentioned earlier, they're also perfect for those who are looking for a more natural look.

MAC Cosmetics Lipstick & Tinted Lipglass in VIVA GLAM Nicki 2

Friday, August 9, 2013

I've been so focused on trying out Japanese Makeup Products that I haven't really thought about getting anything from my all time favorite makeup brand, MAC Cosmetics. But I finally got myself a couple of new lipsticks and lipglasses! 

I really like the containers since they're simple and clean, but still stylish. Th Lipglass applicator is small and fluffy which in my opinion is ideal for a lipgloss applicator. It gives me a precise and pleasant application. The lipstick is about the same size as any other lipstick, but the lipglass container is quite small in my opinion. But based on my experience with MAC's products, both of them will probably last quite some time.


Both of these are a very pretty and romantic pastel lavender pink. The lipglass has hints of glitter in it. The best part about the MAC Lipsticks I've tried is that they're very opaque. I usually have to apply concealer on my lips before applying a lipstick for it to really show, but I can apply this lipstick on my bare lips and it will still turn out really opaque and vivid.

The lipglass is very opaque for being a lipglass, but it doesn't turn out as bright and vivid as the lipstick when worn alone; It turns out much more sheer and subtle. You can't really notice the hints of shimmer in it, but it gives me a really shiny and juicy finish. I usually wouldn't want to wear lipgloss alone, but I could definitely wear this if I want a more natural but still glamorous look.

Consistency & Lastability

The consistency of the lipstick is very creamy and smooth which usually would make me think that the lip color would fade quickly, but as expected It lasts for quite some time. The consistency of the Lipglass is also quite smooth and just a bit sticky, but it feels very nice on the lips and isn't too annoyingly sticky or too liquidly; It's just perfect!

In the picture to the left I'm wearing both the Lipstick and Lipglass.

Like I said, I also got another Lipstick and Lipglass in Saint Germain. I'll probably make a short review on those too even though my opinion is the same as for this one. The only difference is the color (which is also gorgeous). So, my verdict is that I absolutely love this Lipstick and Lipglass.

I'll definitely start collecting more products from MAC Cosmetics again!
