D.U.P Eyelashes Fixer FX (Clear Type)
-jumping up and down- I got it I got it. I finally got it muahahahaha. It’s super highly recommended by Japanese Models for its staying power and crazily strong holding glue (oww.) Here! Check this out!
From the creators of the GORGEOUS D.U.P comes a great eyelash glue that’s been on the market for some time now.
You know how some glues are… Completely unknown even after being around for eons? XD Well this one’s not at all like that, in fact, it had a two page feature spread on POPTEEN (June 2010)!
-laughing- It’s a freaking celebrity favourite so I had to get it. I think it’s only available in Japan (?) cause I haven’t seen this in Singapore before =X Dang, I should have bought more…
So the bottle’s like any other eyelash glue bottle except this one’s really simple.
It even came with a second safety seal for quality assurance and that left me feeling quite important and impressed :X They don’t usually have second seals unless it’s pharmaceuticals.
The brush is just the right size and thickness too… Have you ever had trouble with brushes that were either too thin or too long? I swear, DARKNESS was pretty good but it smelt horrible! This glue, on the other hand just smells like… Well, glue but without being too pungent.
The glue goes on white (so you’ll be able to see where you’ve applied it) and dries clear. I think one of the advantages of clear glue is that we won’t see funky black lines if there’s a misalignment at the initial stage.
I remember once, I applied false lashes with glue that dried black (i.e. DARKNESS) and to my horror, in the middle of the day, when I was checking my makeup, I realized that I had an extra black line that extended out of my lash line. Reason? I was careless when I first applied the lashes (I was starting out at that time. XD ahh… The good old days…) and the glue dried there cause I didn’t clean it off. -faints- so I had this really funny line, almost like I misdrew my eyeliner.
The formula itself is slightly runny so it’s not the goopy sort of mess that you might see with some glues. It goes on easily and pretty smoothly with the brush.
The best part about the glue? It’s waterproof, sweat proof and drop proof – pretty much everything proof but while I can definitely vouch for it’s waterproof and sweat proofness, it’s got the same problem as the other glues.
The edges of the eyelashes will still start to peel off by midday and quite honestly, I’m sure you and I both know how to deal with that (snip the edges off and reposition them) but I had decided against doing that for one of my pairs, just to test out how good this glue really is and hmm… It was a disappointment in that respect but it’s understandable because those are the edges are the places that usually face the most friction (in a sense, from our blinking)
Found a way around the peeling edges problem: Make sure you apply just that little more on the edges and hold it down while it dries before opening your eyes.
But seriously, I tried to tug the fake lashes off in the middle of the day and it hurt. I’m not kidding, it’s that strong. >_< I literally had my lid stretched a little when I tried it! The lashes just WOULD NOT COME OFF. Good lord! That was more than enough for me! -laughing-
BYE BYE DARKNESS GLUE!
♡♡♡ D.U.P Eyelashes Fixer FX (Clear Type) ♡♡♡
✔ Holding Power: 9/10 [1 point off for the edges. DANG!] 10/10 [I took it to the dunking machine thrice and it stayed on, that's pretty awesome!]
✔ Smell: 2/10 [It's very tolerable and barely noticeable once the glue dries.]
✔ Ease of application: 9/10 [Super smooth in my case!]
✔ Lasting Power: 9/10 [Once again, one point off for the peeling edges] 10/10 [I was dunked thrice!]
✔ Economical? Perhaps? -laughing-
I would SO rebuy. It’s worth the price for the quality but dang, I wish it would hold the edges of my falsies down… It’s great stuff though!
