DUP Eyelashes Brown Mix (Model Edition) 916 [キュートeyes] [[REVIEW]]
So, in one of the latest issues of Popteen, Maikawa-san was featured!
This is a tribute to her genius line of lashes and her continuing efforts to give us new lash designs because, let’s face it, lashes are repeating themselves a lot these days and I’ll be upfront and say I’m getting really bored.
Straight from the 900 Brown Mix Series, I give to you DUP Eyelashes Brown Mix (Model Edition) 916 [キュートeyes]!
Produced by Japanese model, Aiku Maikawa, DUP Eyelashes have long been the favourite of POPTEEN and CanCam models alike.
Retailing at 1,260 Yen, 916 is part of a series of five lashes.
Don’t get me started on the lovely packaging.
IT’S SPARKLY! It’s just so pretty?! I’m such a sucker for nice packaging.
Every box comes with two trays of lashes.
The first thing that caught my attention (aside from the pretty packaging :3) about these lashes was the advertising.
It claims to be 80% brown and 20% black, apparently to make the lashes look more natural.
I don’t know about you but while they most certainly were not jet black, they look quite black to me at first.
Yes yes, they look quite similar to another pair that I recently reviewed, no?
Guess what I went and did next.
Yes, when you compare the both in this manner, you’ll see that there indeed, is a difference between the shades. There seems to be a brownish-tinge to DUP.
And while the two designs look somewhat similar, the primary focus, the middle section, is quite different.
Extremely natural, the emphasis on the pupils is unmissable.
And I LOVE the lash band. Transparent, thin and soft, they’re incredibly easy to work with and so darn comfy.
Ooo, and the length of the lash band for DUP’s 2.9cm. Even more perfect for the lazy old me. I’m especially biased towards lashes I don’t have to put in much effort into putting on.
In spite of me having used these many times, the lash band has kept its shape.
The fibres measure about 1.0cm, making this super natural and super good for you, if you wear glasses, or if you just want something really natural.
