♡ Daiso Straight Lower Lashes~! REVIEW [[DUPE FOR DOLLY WINK #8]]♡

Posted in Daiso, Dolly Wink by Jae on November 6, 2010

When I first saw these lashes on the pages of the latest issue of EGG, I felt a wave of happiness wash across me. Finally, a product that I can grab from the stores without having to order from Japan.

Thank god!

Yes, these are the straight lower lashes from Daiso. There are two types, if I’m not mistaken – one is the criss cross type and the other one’s this one, the straight type, which is what we’re looking at today.

Application was relatively easy after I snipped the lashes into two parts as with my other lower lashes from Diamond Lash. I found it nearly impossible for me to handle when it was a full strip.

In terms of the stiffness of the lashband, I have to say that it’s almost completely comparable to my Diamond Lash lashes. I was completely shocked when I realized how soft the lash band is. However, in terms of how the lashes are placed, ah, that’s where the first difference shows up.

Be very careful when removing these lashes from the tray because the fibers will shift along the lash band. This could potentially destroy the lashes so please do take extra care.

Secondly, the way the lashes were placed in the tray made for some serious difficulty for my removal. I’m going to put this down to the manufacturing and say that I hope they’ll do something about that. :3

Now, are you ready for some pictures? 😀

Yes, I used the full strip and still, they look extremely natural.

And upon closer inspection, don’t you think they look kind of similar to my #8 Dolly Wink lashes?


I honestly think that there is an unmistakable resemblance, so I’m going to say for the first time that:

I HAVE FOUND A DUPE FOR DOLLY WINK #8 AT DAISO AND THIS IS IT.

At only two bucks a pair, I seriously think that this makes for a better deal than Dolly Wink because it’s very much comparable and a heck lot cheaper!

♡♡♡ Daiso Straight Lower Lashes ♡♡♡

✔ Length: 7/10 [They’re just the right length, I absolutely love this.]
✔ Volume: 5/10 [Just the right amount~]
✔ Ease of application: 4.5/10 [I had some difficulty removing the strip out of the tray and also had to snip it into two before applying… It’s a little troublesome but for the price I’m paying I’d say it’s well worth it.]
✔ Reusable? Yup~ If you’re careful, that is.
✔ Economical? It’s a dupe for the 24.90 SGD Dolly Wink lashes so yes, it’s DEFINITELY economical.

Verdict:
It’s a great pair of lower lashes and… Dude, it’s 2 bucks for something that would have cost me 24.90! I’m definitely going back for more, I’m just kicking myself for not having found this earlier!

    nice review!! 😀

    where did u buy these lashes, nowadays I went to visit plaza singapura and ion’s fake eyelash corner, and poof, almost all the fake eyelash were gone!!

    is it me or, i am super not fated with lashes T.T

      😀 Thanks Sherhui!
      And I grabbed these at the Ion branch maybe… A few days ago? Cause it’s the start of the month, so they would have restock a little bit… But most other people know that too so they would have made a beeline for that place faster that you can say “Daiso” so T_T… Everyone buys a lot when they get there so we have to stock up the minute we see stocks…

      I wanted to get the sponge cleaner but bleargh. They ran out. T_T

      -patpat- Don’t worry sweety… Sometimes they’ll sneakily hide the lashes behind one another so do drop by the Ion branch to give it another shot okay?
      Let me know whether you manage to find some~!!!

    • Jae said, on November 7, 2010 at 9:23 am

      😀 Hehe! Sankyu Crytalllll (bones :3) heheheh!

      T_T Daiso’s always running out of stuff faster than they can restock cause people usually buy like, 2-3 at a time… T_T Sighhhhhhhh
      I went to the one at Ion, BB! But then there were only a few boxes left so they might have already ran out… Maybe I’ll see if I can make a trip down sometime this week to see if they have anymore and I’ll let you know about it kay? ♡
