Ranzuki October Issue False Lashes!

Posted in Ranzuki by Jae on September 16, 2010

Overdue post, I know! OTL Sumimasen!

October’s Ranzuki came with a pair of upper and lower lashes~ >_< I promised to review them earlier but got caught up!

-grinning- here I am with a really really quick review of them~!

Now, the lashes are relatively soft but the spine was rather tricky to work with because it was kind of hard? The edges weren’t too pokey though, so I could deal with that.

The above image credits to Kinopromo! 😀

Yes, you’re looking at transparent lash bands and a design that looks very close to our beloved dollywink #2! -grinning- Picture below for reference~ ❤

It was my first time working with a full strip of lower lash but surprisingly, I didn’t have much trouble putting them on with the help from my ever-trusty tweezers.

I did a slight up flick with the ends of the falsies to help open my eyes up! The overall effect that they gave? Hmm… Close ups look awesome but check out my ‘both eye’ picture.

I’ll be honest, I hate the effect it gave. -laughing- The feedback that I got from my friends was that my lower lashes were too long. -pauses- I thought they looked alright [they’re very Ranzuki aren’t they?!] but the upper lashes didn’t quite suit me – quite like Dolly Wink 02…

One of my readers, Rina, mentioned that cutting off one small section from the end made the Dolly Wink lashes work for her so I might just try that out! 😀

The fibers were decently soft, they felt a little bit like the quality from Dolly Wink and really, it’s the first time I’ve received false lashes from a magazine! -laughing- I’m not complaining!

I believe the magazine is already out of stock but even if they were in stock, I wouldn’t quite recommend them ^_^||| They don’t seem very universally suitable to me.

        i think iris is doing a great job on her blog ^^
        i go to her blog for all sorts of updates.

    • Flitter Jae said, on September 17, 2010 at 5:51 pm

      XD Tell me about it.
      You know, thank god the actual magazine’s pretty alright… Otherwise I would have been quite unhappy with the purchase. XD

      • Keita said, on September 18, 2010 at 1:55 am

        Haha yea same thoughts but I sold my magazine off though :p

        The lash is just…. so…. fake??? although I like that its flexible.

      • Flitter Jae said, on September 18, 2010 at 6:07 pm

        XD I know right? Don’t know but I just kinda think this design wouldn’t quite work on too many people…
        Remember the first few pages of the mag though? They suggested cutting it up before using it…. Mmm… Maybe I’ll try that out…
        😀 I’ll let you know if it works kay? ❤

      • Keita said, on September 19, 2010 at 1:20 am

        I already cut them T.T but for me it doesnt work Xp

      • Flitter Jae said, on September 19, 2010 at 12:54 pm

        Oh man… T_T
        Now I’m wondering if it will work for me… T_T Wahaha, never mind never mind, we’ll just take it as a lesson learnt.
        neva buy if the falsies are in dolly wink 02 fashion. XD

    i got mentioned in your post =D

    the trick to getting #2 work is that the pointy parts of the lashes must start from above your iris (i.e. the non-white part of your eyes). it means if you start from the outer corner of your eye, it’s straight lashes on the white part, the pointy parts should start from your iris onwards and all the way to the inner corner of your eyes.

    the focus of #2, which is making your iris larger etc etc.

    my english is out of the window at the moment. >_< too tired!

    • Flitter Jae said, on September 19, 2010 at 12:54 pm

      XD Of course you did love!
      And hahaha, that’s a real mouth full! And thanks for the tips sweety~~~ ♡
