So it's me again, awake from the dead. I endure hard times here in Japan because I study all day. I can even feel my improvement which is great I consider. Everything they give us in the university is a bit too much to do everything on 100% but I think I can handle it. I just got back a test with 96 / 100 for reading and comprehension and 85 / 100 for grammar (which I thought I failed so bad.. structures I never saw before). But, beside my whole study-to-death-thing I find time to shop and spend some money around the town! :D

When we went into the 100-Yen.Store recently I just had to buy and try out the fake lashes they had. I mean its 100 Yen (1$? Don't know the exact exchange rate by now..) for a pair and they looked quite nice made. So the lashes I got were the criss-cross type from Daiso Japan.

Already forgot to take a photo by myself.. (u__u"")  Picture belongs to Eki, see the review for these lashes here!

I have to say that I was amazed of the quality of these lashes! I mean I did not expect anything amazing from lashes which are sold for 100 Yen, but these do really well. I fell in love with the glue. I have to admit that the glues in Germany are shit. Really shit. They melt together with your lash and it's not possible to "clean" your lashes and use again. I once asked dear little Yapo how to remove glue from the lashes and she was kinda confused about the question.... whiping off of course. I now recognized that this is quite possible with any non-german eyelash glue, it's really a shame.

So the glue is white but turning into clear after a minute of waiting. It holds on all day, I wore these lashes whole university day until I fell asleep. You can easily whipe off the glue if you use some kind of make-up remover. After that the glue is a bit jelly-like and can be torn off. I really like these lashes because they look natural although they are crisscross. I wear them everyday for university up to this point! ^-^

Torn off at the beginning because I failed at applying the first time I used the glue.. u.u" And was too lazy to reshoot the last days :x

Do you have any special lashes you love until now? I also wondered what lash glue you use. I thought about getting the Dolly Wink Lash Glue but I'm not convinced of the qualities products yet. Personally I think that all Dolly Wink products are far too overpriced and just not worth it. Until now I went for the Diamond Lashes which are way more cheaper and satisfied with this decision! But I'm not sure if I can stand to not buy a single pair of these so-much-hyped lashes until I'm in Japan... maybe I'll regret it. Maybe.

I also wanted to give my circle lenses a last try. I made very bad experiences with most of my lenses but I would go for a last pair to try. Maybe won't looking like an alien. I liked my previous lenses Geo Nudy Golden Blue sososo much but they were way too uncomfy. Any good lenses which I should give a try?

I have so much more to share but I fear I'm too tired... it's 3 AM and I have to go to university in a few hours and talking about Japans ancient system of economy. It's not the type of lesson you want to have in the morning (or anytime), I swear.
Good night and thanks for stopping by! 


P.S. What I'm using on a daily basis are these Diamond Lower Lashes ("Lovely Eye") I mentioned before! I love them although they look a bit artificial... but. Truly. I don't mind. I'm in an artificial mood sometimes.

  1. Those lashes looks amazing on you! :D and most of the times the glue is to blame also. I find the glues that comes with the lashes quite shitty :b

  2. I agree with Maria: those lashes look GREAT on you. Very natural, but still a bit dramatic. <33

    I can never find good lash glue, either. D:

    And I'm glad you're doing well in your higher level classes. :]

    As for circle lenses? Hm... Have you considered trying lenses from the brand Neo Vision (aka. Neo)? They have some GORGEOUS series~~.

    Also, perhaps lenses from the brand G&G (aka. Dueba). The DM23 series looks really nice on lighter eyes and the brand is very comfy, I think.

  3. The lashes look good on you! I have a similar pair. Recently I've been buying Model 21 lashes, they're AMAZING. Definitely try them out if you can! I recently just tried EOS Max Pure Green lenses (I reviewed them on my blog). I've never worn contacts before and found them very comfortable. c:

  4. Wah, love the lashes on you <3

    I use Dolly Winks and they are one of the best drugstore brand lashes imo! In my country, false lashes are not very common, so there's not a big variety to choose from. Normally the lashes cost like 8€ so I think paying 12-14€ for two sets of DW lashes isn't expensive in comparison, but I understand your point. They are expensive when you are a student and you have other things to buy (i am a student but i leech off my parents etc. blabla haha).

    The DW's wont give you a very harsh dramatic look, it will look more 'soft'. Lashes are not very shiny and I think the length of them are good to create the illusion of bigger eyes, but that said, my eyes are tiny so eh.

    I found DW no. 1 a good lash to create cat eye/ long eyes! they hurt a bit in the corners of my eye though.. these are more on the casual side focusing on the outer eye. a bit fragile.

    DW no. 2 is super love! They are voluminous and pretty. Less fragile than no.1 (these ones survived 2 months of almost daily wear).

    DW no.5 is one of the best natural lower lashes out on the market. Very very very fragile though, the ones i'm using come from the 6th box already. But with time, you know how to take care of them while not spending much time and effort.

    Decolog has lashes with a similar design to DW no. 1 & 2 ^_^

    i hope this helped you for a bit :D
