Sunday! I always have mixed emotions about this day because on one hand you're so glad it's still a day off and on the other, the thought of work creeping back up just sits at the corner of your mind.
Regardless, I had a mind to sit down and post up some entries though errands ended up stealing me away and one of the errands involved stocking up on toiletries.
So what you get after a long tiring Sunday is this quick summary haul entry. Oops!
As the title goes, I dropped by Watsons today and amidst my toiletries, I also picked up my favorite lash glue of the moment.
Actually, saying this is my favorite is a wee bit off but previously I had purchased the clear version of this (because it was the only one available) and really liked how it worked.
Though after having used dark lash glue before, I much prefer it over the clear ones and simply had to pick up the dark variant of it once I saw it was available.
Plus it has a purple polka dot cover! Frivolous fun but such a cute combination.
With my previous purchase I paid no heed to the fact that apparently this contains rose and fruit extract to care for the sensitive skin on your eyelids.
What I like about this is the wand-applicator that it comes with because I almost always cause a mess using the squeeze tubes. Even if I manage to come out of a false lash application mess-free with those, they do take a lot of time and effort to 'aim and squeeze on'.
Thus, wand applicators are the way to go!
In my experience with this (both clear and one use of the dark one), these are like an inbetween of a former lash glue I used and the Shu Uemura one.
The Shu Uemura is really heavy duty, I find, and it's certainly something you don't have to worry about 'peeling' or falling off if applied right. Yet you can't just lazily peel it off at the end of the day too. Some have found it to be so adhesive it could cause some irritation to the lids with prolonged regular wear but that's just what I heard.
My former one was okay, usuable and similar to DUO in my experience but it does lift at the edges or sometimes in the middle after a long day. Nothing that threatens to make the lash fall but it does make you feel insecure.
So long story short, I find this really sticks and holds on yet you can choose to peel it off lazily at the end of the day too. You can feel it's adhesion but it's not so tight that it is uncomfortable.
Phew! What a long essay about lash glue comparisons and I'm hardly the right person to ask!
Forgot to mention, Dollywink's lash glue is S$18.95, if I remember correctly.
Aside from picking up this new love, here are the other toiletries I stocked up on at Watsons (my favorite place for toiletry shopping).
So.. just because I am curious...
What is your favorite eyelash glue to use? Do you prefer clear or dark?
Thanks for reading and hope everyone has a great work or school week ahead!
