One of my favourite lash trays from Diamond Lash is the “ドーリーeye”, which translates into “Dolly Eye” in English. (I seem to have a great connection to the doll-eye themed eyelashes, haha.)

After the mediocre experience with the “Celebrity Eye” tray, I finally opened the “Dolly Eye” package I hunted specifically for. Normally for day-to-day wear I tend to only use cheapies, which are more expendable in case I feel too lazy to save them, but I was in the mood to put a bit more effort into my eye makeup.

★ Diamond Lash (Pink) – Dolly Eye

Five pairs come with each hot pink tray. The eyelashes are not too long, and the volume is excellent. The sides have little criss-cross of hairs, while the middle has a longer straighter hairs. It’s really great ~ I wore it to work, as well as meeting up with a dear friend Selina for bubbletea yesterday evening.

These lashes are definitely multi-purpose and can be used for all occasions. A pair lasts a very long time, and it’s very durable! One of my favourites for sure

I like to first outline the eye with a pencil eyeliner (I find Bobbi Brown kohl eyeliner or Dolly Wink pencil eyeliner in brown works well), go over the outline with a liquid liner (I use Dolly Wink liquid eyeliner), then apply any eyeshadow or shimmery liner. Then, I apply the eyelashes of choice.

Today at work, I used a lovely gold eyeshadow from a Shu Uemura palette. I hope to use more striking eyeshadow colours this summer

Diamond Lash has this limited edition yellow tray. Looks so divine! I want it~ Where can I find it?

Diamond Lash: Celebrity Eye

The beauty product I am writing about today is called “Diamond Lash – セレブeye”For those of you who don’t know, Diamond Lash is a brand of Japanese eyelashes. They usually retail for $20CAD for five pairs. Slightly cheaper than Dolly Wink, and you get a couple more pairs to boot. (Five, to be exact.)

★ Diamond Lash (Blue) – Celebrity Eye

“セレブeye” is featured on a baby-blue-coloured tray, making it a part of that colour collection. The brand has multiple eyelash series distinguished by differently coloured trays. セレブ (serebu) translated from Japanese into English means “celebrity”, so this eyelash is meant to make your eyes look like that of a celebrity’s. Sounds glamourous, huh?

My experience with this “celebrity eyelash” was so-so. The first time I took a pair out of the packaging, a hair on the band actually got pulled off! I read reviews that this brand’s lashes were delicate, but I found this to be quite ridiculous. I didn’t used any more strength than I would with any other brand, delicately peeling the lash off the tray without much force.

Fortunately, wearing them was all right. If you examine the lashes closely, there is a portion near the ends of the lashes where the hair is a thicker stroke. I really like this attention to detail. The lash band is clear instead of black, which I also like. However, something about the length and design of these lashes makes it feel heavy on my eyes. They are really long! It might be because I didn’t apply enough mascara to “hold up” the lashes with my natural ones, but halfway through my work day I could see the lashes drooping in my peripheral vision… something definitely not desired.

Dramatic & LONG

I’m going to try wearing this style a couple more times before I come to a final verdict. Some are big fans of this lash type, but I didn’t find it too impressive. I’d be giving it 3 stars out of 5. Maybe 3 and a half. While not practical, they do look stunning in photos.

Any tips on how I can get full use of the incredible length these lashes offer? Perhaps I’m not positioning them right. Let me know if you have any pointers!
