Daiso False Lashes Select Transparent Cil #8 [[REVIEW]] [[Looks like Diamond Lash (ドーリーeye)?!]]

Posted in Daiso by Jae on February 16, 2011

Daiso is a haven for false lashes now, I went down yesterday and more falsies fell into my basket. I swear I don’t know how that happened.

Today, I’ll be reviewing a pair of lashes that might be my new favourite Daiso lash of all time (until the next one comes along because I change favourites like I change clothes) because they look a little like Diamond Lash (ドーリーeye)? I’ll explain later.

This is the Daiso False Lashes Select Transparent Cil #8.

The first thing that struck me about these lashes was how short they are in the tray and that’s perfect for me because I’ve never been a fan of hyperlength lashes.

Don’t be fooled by their unassuming appearance though, these lashes pack a pretty good punch for volume.

The lash bands for these are transparent, as the name suggests, and as with all other lashes in this series, it runs a little thick which could be a pro or con depending on which camp you belong to.

Some girls prefer thicker lash bands because they find their glues difficult to stabilize, so a thicker lash band reduces the risk of having glue on the fibers of your falsies. On the other hand, some girls pretty thinner lash bands because they’re a lot less obvious when applied (yes, when one blinks, you’ll sometimes be able to see the entire lash band >_<)

For me, the spine was a dream to work with because it was just flexible enough and the fibers were not getting in my (clumsy) way.

The fibers were relatively soft but not as soft as the ones from my previous #7 review, still, no complaints there.

The design of the lashes is the classic straight and crossed but the difference would be that it’s a lot less overwhelming and dramatic here.

I really like how it’s not too long – I can’t stop talking about its length because I’ve been met with too many hyperlength lashes recently.

And if I may, these remind me a little of Diamond Lash (ドーリーeye)

And even more so when I look at the image below… Hmm.

The thing is, I think I’ll definitely be able to tweak these to look more like Diamond Lash (ドーリーeye)… -grinning-

♡♡♡ Select Transparent Cil #8 ♡♡♡

✔ Length: 5/10 [I love the length – it’s just right for me.]
✔ Volume: 8/10 [Definitely gave volume.]
✔ Ease of application: 10/10 [Easy peasy, lemon squeezy]
✔ Reusable? Yup! -laughing- I tried to wreck them but they held up! o.o
✔ Economical? Yes! Because they look similar to Diamond Lash!

Verdict:
As I said, these are really close to getting crowned my new favourite Daiso lashes so XD

As for whether they are still available at Daiso, I’m not certain… I didn’t see any yesterday when I went to Plaza Singapura’s Branch of the store where I first bought them a two weeks back but they might be available at Ion and the rest of the branches.

      And hmm.. Well during cleaning, one of the lash band fibers came loose so I think it's relatively alright if we handle it with a little more care… :3

    Hihi!

    I must say i really like your blog and the reviews… its like a wiki abt Japanese Make-up XD
    Can i ask a few qns? (less than 2 i promise!)

    1. Do you wear fake lashes everyday?
    2. Can you do a tutorial on how to put fake lashes? cuz i am pretty bad at putting them… so i need some help… sometimes i put the lashes, they cant be seen… like they drooped down… 😦 is there a way to make them like “obvious”?

    Thank you! 😀
