Dolly Wink Eyeshadow Palette 05 Silver Grey

Dolly Wink Eyeshadow Palette 05 Silver Grey Review!

Today I want to introduce the second eyeshadow palette I bought at Shibuya109 to you. Dolly Wink Eyeshadow Palette 05 Grey Silver. It’s the 5. palette of Tsubasa Masuwakas Makeup range of the japanese makeup brand Koji. Usually I don’t use silver or grey eyeshadows, but still I had to buy it since I am a really big fan of Tsubasa. I used this eyeshadow the first time for my Halloween makeup and for my New Year’s Eve look.

I’m sometimes not a person of many words so…. Here as usual the package and shades first:

as you can see, the first two shadows are very light, because of the flash they can rarely be seen here^^’

The Dolly Wink Eyeshadow Palette 05 Review:

What I love:

  • The Quality – good pigmentation as always, blends very well.
  • The Price – I would always pay this price for such a lovely palette.
  • The Color – I guess the shades are still cute even though it’s silver and grey.

What I don’t like:

  • In my case: The color. I don’t like using shades like these because they make my eyes looking tired and red. I guess I can’t wear dark makeup because of my dark circles. But this is just my opinion, so if you are using darker shades more often, this palette is just about right^^

Here I took some photos of just my eyes:

Ah I’m really sorry for the bad quality, it was already late at night when I took these… Some of you may have seen my Instagram posts^_^ I don’t know but sometimes I like this look and sometimes I really hate wearing lenses, lashes and eyeshadow like this.. It’s really weird haha.

Next post I will tell a little bit about my current life and my plans this year! Please take some time to visit again!

Have a good day~

Dolly Wink Eyeshadow Palette 04 Shiny Brown

Dolly Wink Eyeshadow Palette 04 Shiny Brown Review

Hello~ My first makeup review this year will be about a product of my favorite japanese brand Dolly Wink! Dolly Wink Eyeshadow Palette 04! I tried even more products from Japan since I went there last summer and I didn’t even use everything yet, so now it’s time to tell something about my favorites!

This will be my first post about my Koji/Dolly Wink haul and it’s about the new eyeshadow palette! I got the Dolly Wink Eyeshadow Palette 04 Shiny Brown and 05 Silver Grey at Shibuya109 and I always recommend the eyeshadows of Tsubasa Masuwakas range for a cute eyemakeup because they are not too dark, not too shiny (even though the name includes shiny..later.) and always easy to blend. Also, the colors usually fit every skin type and hair color. But let’s see the details!

The eyeshadow case looks similar to the old ones. Also the same applicator is included.

The palettes are available in 04 Shiny Brown (left) and 05 Silver Grey (right)

Dolly Wink Eyeshadow 04

Made in Japan hehe.

So here is a close up of 04:

Dolly Wink Eyeshadow 04

Dolly Wink Eyeshadow Palette 04

A golden beige color for a light base or highlights, a brown beige color for fading, a shiny brown to contour and a matte black color to deepen and lining. Or something like that :D The name of this palette is “Shiny Brown” it includes a matte black eyeshadow, too. I think the brown ones aren’t too shiny, too. I usually don’t like too shiny eyeshadows, since it makes my eyes look like fish eyes if I use too much. Also my eyes look red and my dark circles appear even darker. But this “shiny” brown is just right. I really like the amount of “shiny” in this palette.

Here are the swatches:

Koji Dolly Wink Eyeshadow Palette 04 Review:

What I love:

  • The Colors – Always matching and gentle colors for a cute eyemakeup
  • The Quality – high pigmented and longlasting eyeshadows
  • The Price – I guess it’s okay to spend, I guess I paid around 14~15€, the money for this eyeshadow palette, since there are 4 different shades included and the eyeshadows last for longer than half a year with daily use.

What I hate:

Actually nothing.. But it bothers me that it’s really expensive if you are buying it online.. Some shops are selling it for more than 25€!! Please be careful and look for other shops if you have to pay more than 20€. I recommend to buy it via ebay from japanese shops.

As you may know I am a huge fan of Tsubasas doll-like makeup looks^^ Sadly I don’t really look like any of these cute gyaru dolls if I try to do the makeup like them, I guess my eyes are way too european haha…

Here’s my POPTEEN inspired look:

Still I hope I could help you finding a new good and not too expensive eyeshadow (^_^)

Hope to see you again for the next review! byebye~

Dolly Wink No. 22 Secret Doll & No. 25 Pure Doll

Dolly Wink No. 22 Secret Doll & No. 25 Pure Doll

Dolly Wink No. 22 Secret Doll & No. 25 Pure Doll review today! •(ㅅ)•

Finally new false lashes of my favorite gyaru model Tsubasa Masuwaka! I LOVE the Dolly Wink products especially the lashes!

So I got me two of the new kits: No. 22 Secret Doll & No. 25 Pure Doll! 〜(^∇^〜)

The new package is so cute! I love how Tsubasa looks in the pictures! She’s always so pretty~

Excuse me using my Instagram pictures for my posts, sometimes I am just too lazy..

First I thought the upper and the lower lashes look pretty similar, if it wouldn’t be too much of the same. But I tried them and also Tsubasa wears them together for her makeup.

Her makeup is so natural! I tried to do so, but I always end up with too thick eyeliner.. Really difficult!

Here I am!

(✿◠‿◠)

The package looks like a tiny book! They even have a back so you could store them like books on a shelf! And as you see above, you also have to open it like a book (。・ω・。)

Dolly Wink No. 22 Secret Doll & No. 25 Pure Doll

I bought both on ebay.com and I paid around 30$ or 27€ . Some shops offer them for much more, so watch out.

Dolly Wink No. 22 Secret Doll & No. 25 Pure Doll

My Review of the Dolly Wink No. 22 Secret Doll (Upper Lashes):

What I love:

  • The Effect – So feminine! They have some small thicker and some longer parts, that gives volume and lengths the same time without looking fake!
  • The Quality – As always, the quality is the best! Invisible band for nude makeup and the lash bundles cling tightly onto it, so the lashes won’t fall off the band.
  • The Comfort – Combined with the included glue, you can’t almost feel them!
  • The Glue – Fast drying and really smooth, it’s somewhat flexible that you can move your lid without thinking the lashes will fall off if you sneeze or something.

What I hate:

The Price – Somehow the new lashes are more expensive than the older ones. And since I live in germany, it’s really hard to find good prices and fast shipping. But I would say, the price is worth it!

My Review of the Dolly Wink No. 25 Pure Doll (Lower Lashes):

What I love:

  • The Effect – I like that they’re a bit bolder than my others, because my eyes are so big and my natural lower lashes are very long, sometimes the false lashes get a bit lost and I could also just apply mascara..
  • The Quality – Same as the others! Very resistant!
  • The Comfort – You can’t feel them, even though they are applied right under the waterline, I don’t feel them!
  • The Glue – Love it!
  • The Price – Actually I noticed I always pay more for lower lashes of Dolly Wink than upper lashes if I want to buy them online. But I found them for the same price as the upper ones, so I guess the price is good?

When it comes to false lashes, I always recommend Tsubasa’s Dolly Wink Lashes! In my opinion, if you are a false lashes guru, some pairs of Koji’s Dolly Wink lashes are a must have!! They have the right ones for every look! I was so happy when I received them and I really like how cute they look!  The combination of volume and length is just perfect for my eyes! I think I look cute with them (。◝‿◜。) don’t judge me~

Dolly Wink Eyelashes

Dolly Wink Eyelashes No. 2 Sweet Girly & No. 14 Natural Cute

Dolly Wink Eyelashes Review!

I was in the “doll”-mode and so I enjoyed doing a Review about my Dolly Wink Eyelashes!

Because I was really bored from german falsies, I decided to invest in the Dolly Wink Eyelashes. I purchsed No. 2 “Sweet Girly” & No. 14 “Natural Cute“.

In my latest Lens Review I wore the upper lashes No. 2 Sweet Girly for the first time. Since then I tried them a few times and I have to say, I’m really glad about the investment.

One Dolly Wink Eyelashes Kit includes:

  • 2 Pair of the Dolly Wink Eyelashes
  • 1 Dolly Wink Glue

Too sad You can’t see Tsubasa..

The Glue is included in every kit

The Dolly Wink Eyelashes No. 2 “Sweet Girly“:

What I love:

  • The Quality! – Better than any Falsies I had before.
  • The Length! – Perfect for my big round eyes!
  • The Form! – the biggest parts are in the middle and not at the outer end.
  • The Price! – Good Price for Good Quality! It’s ok.
  • The Effect! – I really felt like a Doll!

What I hate:

  • The Glue! – I had to use my old glue, because the Dolly Wink Glue is really the worst.

I really love these new upper falsies. Can’t imagine a life without them anymore. lol really!

The Dolly Wink Eyelashes No. 14 “Natural Cute“:

What I love:

  • The Quality! – Same as No. 2 – Although the “line” is very thin, it is really tough. Really defined lashes.
  • The Length! – So natural but cute! Not too overwhelming.
  • The Form! – ..
  • The Price! – ..
  • The Effect! – Perfect to create a Cute Gyaru-Look!

What I hate:

  • The Glue!! :D

Everytime I used lower lashes, I looked fake and cakey, like a low quality barbie :D But these absolutey do the thing, complete the gyaru look, I wanted to create. Will definitely try the other lower lashes, too.

After Work, I was really motivated to create this look, because at work I’m always looking very tired and sleepy… Somehow it was refreshing lol.

And I really started to like my short hair. Especially with curls! ^-^

Take Care!

Much love, Gugl~

Dolly Wink Eyeshadow No 2 Pink Brown

Review: Dolly Wink Eyeshadow No 2 Pink Brown!

Dolly Wink Eyeshadow No 2 Pink Brown

Hello Everyone! It’s soooo hot in Germany right nao! It’s really summer in here nao. I even got a cold from one of the ventilators, because I slept in front of one… Oh the Irony.. Yeah. But I’m getting better!

Although it’s very late right now, I’m in the mood for another review! (^▽^)

So here’s my review about the Dolly Wink Eyeshadow No 2 Pink Brown produced by my fav model Tsubasa Masuwaka!

 

Dolly Wink Eyeshadow No 2 Pink Brown

The design is so cute and princess like <3

the swatch of the Dolly Wink Eyeshadow No 2 Pink Brown:

Note: I didn’t use a primer for the swatch.

The Dolly Wink Eyeshadow No 2 Pink Brown

What I love:

  • The Colors! – So kawaii!
  • The Texture! – So soft & smooth.
  • The Design! – Always plays a role lol.

What I hate:

  • The Price! – If you don’t know a good shop, you’ll pay dearly.
  • The less Intensity! – Wish it would be a little more pigmented. The result is not longlasting without a good primer.

In my case the availability is another point, because I can’t buy it in germany. But there are a few shops online which ship worldwide.

 

So here are some photos of my look with the eyeshadow:

It really is a soft eye make, but I hope you can see the pink and gold color around my eyes. The brown shades are for giving a 3d-effect to the eyes.

Thanks for Reading!

Yeeees I know I used pictures from my Geo Flower Lenses Pink Review.. But I used both the same day…soo

Please be indulgent to mee~

Much Love, Gugl ~ <3
