NEW Dolly Wink Products Review!

Giveaway prizes UPDATED! I'm giving away one pair of Dolly Wink no. 9 and one pair of no. 13 instead of two pairs of no. 13. It's up to the winner to choose to have the lashes in the no. 9 packaging or the no. 13. 

The reason is because I lost my no. 9 and no. 13 after I took them off -___- Due to my damn laziness I didn't put them back in the original box and left them on top of my contact lense box. And two days later (today) they were gone!!! My suspicious are that the wind blew them onto the floor and then my bf's mum prob swept them away when she was sweeping our room -___- FML maximum!!!!

So I'm going to get another no. 9 and no. 13 for myself and the unused pair of 9 and 12 will be given away >___< I think in a way it made the prize better because the winner get to try two out of the six new dolly wink lashes!

OK here is my review for the NEW Dolly Wink series. Please be warned this is going to be a fairly long post since I will be reviewing 5 products!

If you are a hardcore Tsubasa fan like I am then you should know by now that Tsu-chan released new Dolly Wink products on the 24th November 2011!

She released 6 brand new Dolly Wink lashes - 3 top, 3 bottom
Eyebrow Powder, Pencil and Mascara in 3 shades
Two new eyelash glue in clear and black
Dolly Wink lash case in a purple design

I will be selling the entire range in my online shop! More information on that at the end of this post!

Here is her adorable Dolly Wink CM




And her behind the scenes!





Tsubasa wanted to graduate from the artificial or fake looking makeup style but she cannot let go of the kawaii (cute) style. So this new series of lashes was created to focus  on the ‘Otona-kawaii’ (Cute Adult) style.

♥  Lashes are handmade accurately and the lashes are interwoven together by hand.
♥  Koji lashes are made to be very durable. These lashes are durable enough to be used repeatedly for over a month.
♥  The lashes are made to blend in well with the natural lashes. One by one the tip of the hair have been shaved thin.
♥  Koji has been making beauty products from over 80 years so they understood and catered to Tsubasa’s ideas.


Ok Review Time!

Dolly Wink no. 9 - Natural Dolly


This lash is recommended to be used with no. 12 Feminine Girl which also has the criss cross style! 

Tsu-chan wearing no. 9 with no. 12
Photos are taken from her blog








Me wearing no. 9 on the left eye


Verdict:
Tsubasa has never failed to disappoint me so far!! If you have been following my blog you know that I'm a hardcore Tsubasa fan and I have pretty much her entire Dolly Wink and Candy Doll collection.

These lashes are REALLY NATURAL. Well the name is Natural Dolly after all!

I think I still need more practice with them so that I can make them curl up more. It's the angle the eyelashes sit on your lash line that determines how curled they will turn out. I hope that makes sense 
-___-

Very comfortable and easy to put on just like all her Dolly Wink lashes! The lash band is still quite long but I'm pretty sure it's purposely made that way to be longer than your eyes to give the illusion of Dolly and bigger eyes which is the gyaru style of makeup!

Onto the next product!

Dolly Wink no. 13 - Baby Girl



I swear these are Tsubasa's fav lashes from her new series because she's wearing these lashes a lot lately and I know because I'm a Tsu-chan stalker -__- yes that's right hahaha 

She even chose these lashes for her Dolly Wink CM!



Like I said she wears them so much lately so it's super easy to find modelling pics from Tsubasa so here are FOUR =P

These lashes are recommended to be paired with no. 10 Sweet cat which is what she is wearing in the two photos below and possible in all of them but I can't be 100% certain.





And oh my god I LOVE them!!!


Two more close ups of me wearing no. 9 and no. 13!


No. 9 is super natural looking right?


Verdict:

I am absolutely in LOVE with these lashes!!! I think they are like the perfect bottom lashes for a natural makeup look. I love the no. 5 but sometimes I find they don't really stand out much. These no. 13 are super easy to put on, great quality and omg just so natural yet you can see them quite well!

More photos coming up!!

Next up is..



Eyebrow Powder in 01 Honey Brown


I chose the lightest colour for all the eyebrow cosmetics because I prefer light brows even though my hair is not that light haha



I freakin love the packaging!!!


Not loving the brush so much but I prefer to use my own makeup brushes anyway


Coloured my brow with the powder.  Also used this powder to contour my nose.
01 is sufficient for nose contouring but I think 02 is probably the best colour if you mainly want to use it for nose contouring. I picked 01 because I wanted it to match my eyebrow mascara and pencil. 

Verdict: 
Super pigmented, adorable packaging! Not so fond of the brush, it's kind of fat so can't do much precise colouring. I haven't really used it because I prefer to use my own makeup brushes but just don't get your hopes too high about the brush that comes with the eyebrow powder haha

Other than that love this product!! 

Eyebrow Pencil in 01 Honey Brown


Swatch on skin - Eyebrow pencil and mascara


Lined my brows to make the shape more defined with the eyebrow pencil


Verdict: 
Super thoughtful of Tsubasa to add the eyebrow brush at the end of the pencil. Great quality and pigmentation. When I tried to wash the swatches off my arm, I ran water then put soap on it and tried to wash it off. It didn't come off!!! I was like wow! This is great against water and sweat! It started coming off after a few more rubs.

Eyebrow Mascara in 01 Milk Tea



Coloured all the hairs in my eyebrow


What I LOVE about the eyebrow mascara is that the brush is short! This makes it so much easier to reach all the hairs and not to get any colour on areas I don't want


Verdict:

Love this colour! Super easy to colour the hairs! Really like the short brush design! And super adorable packaging!

Both eyes and brows done!


Look of the Day!

I decided to use all Tsubasa's Candy Doll and Dolly Wink products for this look! Except for foundation  because I haven't bought it yet - I got too many foundations atm and the eyelash glue because I only use the DUP eyelash glue which I'm also selling in my shop (More info about that below!).

  17. Okkkk, I've been in love with gyaru fashion for some years now and I still don't really know well the Japanese models 'cause I don't often look at fashion magazines, I guess I don't read enough ^^ But as I'm hearing the name of Tsubasa very often these days, your post definitively encouraged me to search for more information on the Internet and I have to confess I really like Tsubasa (her products, her style, her songs...) :D Thanks for these reviews.
    So, at the end, what would you recommend for eyebrows : pencil or mascara ? Because I'm hesitating between these two =/

    Anyway, you're so pretty and, oh god, your nails are wonderful !

    1. yayy glad my post converted u into a tsubasa fan teehee!

      Hmmz eyebrow pencil is essential to defining the eyebrows where as mascara is used to change the hair colour of ur brows to match ur hair colour better

      so depends what you want to do for ur eyebrow, define the shape or change the colour

      I want to do both so I need both ^__^
