Product Review: Dolly Wink Pencil Eyeliner in Black

Monday, August 29, 2016

     Hello dearies! Sharing with you a quick review of my current fave eyeliner- Dolly Wink Pencil Eyeliner in Black. I got this as a token from Row101 Summer Pop Up Bazaar launch last April. Dolly Wink is a famous make-up brand in Japan. According to Pinky Paradise website:
This range contains everything you could ever need to make your new circle lenses really shine! Perfect to achieve that Gyaru style, we have everything from eyebrow mascara to liquid eyeliner, false eyelashes to eyelash fix to give that perfect bold effect to emphasize your stunning new look eyes. Endorsed by the beautiful Japanese model Tsubasa Masuwaka who is synonymous with the Gyaru trend.
     This brand is not new to me because I've seen their false eyelashes in my Hong Kong trip years ago. I'm only familiar with their falsies and never knew that they have eyeliners in different colors and textures too. I'm happy that I took this pencil eyeliner home, actually it's my first pencil eyeliner review to date (the one that needs to be sharpened). So without further ado, my honest to goodness review of Dolly Wink Pencil Eyeliner in Black :)

Product claims:

Color
  • Rich, deep black to dramatically highlight the eyes.

Super quick-drying
  • Quick to dry, with no stickiness. Rub resistant. 

Waterproof type
  • With a long-lasting formulation that‘s resistant to sweat, water and running once applied. 
  • The liner stays perfectly in place for a just-applied look all day long. 

Soft crayon tip
  • This crayon-like liner is velvety soft and creamy to apply. 
  • Create elegant and fluid lines with no need to press down or drag across the skin. 

Pencil type
  • Pencil type liner with a creamy soft touch. Break-resistant and so easy to apply.
     
     This is a limited edition product from Dolly Wink. It comes with a liquid eyeliner plus the pencil eyeliner that I'm currently using. I'm not into liquid eyeliner pens as of the moment so I'll just reserve my review for that in the future but for now, let's take a look at the pencil eyeliner. I've included the liquid eyeliner pen in some of the photos below for comparison but the review will be more focused on the pencil eyeliner.

     In the swatch above, the pencil eyeliner is matte while the liquid pen is glossy. If you're into liquid eyeliner and likes to draw thin sharp lines, I think the latter one is for you. I have shaky hands and using liquid eyeliner is challenging.

Line my upper lash line with the pencil eyeliner, pardon the not so good line here

What I like:
  • The packaging is super cute. I like the color and design of this eyeliner pencil.
  • The price is very affordable considering the quality of the product.
  • No need to warm up this eyeliner because the texture is velvety soft and creamy that's why it's easy to apply.
  • Easy to use. I have no issues in drawing thin or thick lines.
  • The color pay-off is good. 
  • It has a matte finish.
  • Last up to 12 hours or longer. 
  • No smudging on my not so oily eyelids even in hot and humid weather.
  • Doesn't wear off easily and no bleeding.
  • I can control the intensity of the lines that I'm doing on my eyelids.
  • Even though it's waterproof, it is easy to remove using my eye makeup remover.
  • It's easy to sharpen, the lead doesn't break while sharpening.
  • Sealed upon purchase.
  • It's a steal if you buy this limited edition because for only 699, you'll get two eyeliners.
  • Batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the label.
  • Easily accessible.

What I don't like:
  • None

Will I repurchase? A big fat YES!!!

Recommendation:
     I give this a 5/5 rating. First impressions last! So for my first pencil eyeliner (kohl) review, it's a keeper in my makeup stash. I use it almost every day. I think I've found my HG pencil eyeliner in Dolly Wink so no need to search for a new brand to try for now. You can also buy this separately, it's available in select Watsons and SM Beauty sections plus I've seen a stall of Dolly Wink in Landmark Trinoma and Makati.

I highly recommend this brand if you're into pencil eyeliners. Have you tried Dolly Wink Eyeliners?

Good Times!~

Product Review: GEO Super Nudy Gray XCH-625- The Bigger, The Better???

Thursday, February 16, 2012

     As promised, I'll be making a review on my new GEO contact lens. I bought this new pair of colored contact lens last December and wore it only twice. If you're a reader of my blog, I'm sure you've seen my photo wearing my first GEO contact lens and made a review here :) 

     After looking at my photos wearing this lens, I can say I have a love-hate relationship with this style. 
GEO Super Nudy Gray XCH-625GEO Super Nudy Color Lenses are available in a variety of colors and designs that meets the needs of the customers from all ethnicities. These lenses are now even bigger making your eyes even more brilliant and attractive!
GEO Super Nudy Gray XCH-625

Water content: 38%
Life Span: 1 Year

 price: 750php ( Around $ 18.00+ )

 place bought: online resellers like ebay, sulit, multiply

What I like:
  • Made my eyes bigger like a doll.
  • Affordable for a 1 year life span contact lens versus other brands.
  • Comes in different designs,colors,sizes.
  • Comes with a free lens case.
What I don't like:
  • Looks unnatural on me, IMO.
  • Uncomfortable to wear since it's bigger than the original size of my eyes.
  • I need to lubricate my eyes every 30 minutes.
  • Made my right eye "red" after using.
  • Wearable for 3 hours only.
Will I repurchase: No

Recommendation:
     I give this a 3.5/5 rating. I love this because it made my eyes look bigger like a doll but it looks off on me. I also don't want to suffer my eye and feel uncomfortable. But I'm sure all fashionista, cos players, kikay, and everyone who loves wearing contact lenses will really like this. Just be sure to practice how to properly wear it. If not properly used, it will cause danger and harm to your eyes. Be sure to buy the authentic ones because there are a lot of fakes circulating around the market.

     Is it a Yay or a nyay? I need your help, I really can't decide :(


Good Times!~





Product Review: Geo Contact Lens in CM 836- Want a dolly eyes?

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

     Today, I will make a post on one of my favorite accessory of all time. I'm a big fan of this since I was in high school. I remember saving up my allowance just to buy different colors of this. I fell in love with colored contact lenses. During those years, Freshlook was the most popular brand. They sell different colors. I always purchase hazel brown, blue, violet and green. I buy their promo of buy 3 get 1 pair for free.

     The contact lenses I purchased were disposable meaning it only lasts for 3 or 6 months. My mother gave me a pair of extended contact lens that lasts for a year in gray. Unfortunately my brother tore them after wearing in a fun run. To cut a long story short, I can say I'm a pro in wearing these stuffs.

     Until one day I got bored wearing contact lenses. But the curiosity in me got triggered when I saw on the internet three years ago these Geo contact lens. As I browsed different colors and sizes of these, I know I need to wear one of them. I ordered this right away. Geo contact lens in CM836 in Black. You can see the full details on GEO Contact lens here:

     Actually I have this model in brown and another back-up in black.

Recommendation:

If not properly used, it will cause danger and harm to your eyes. Be sure to buy the authentic ones because there are a lot of fakes circulating around the market.

     By the way, I'm planning to buy a new one. What color do you think suits me? 

Good Times!
