Koji: Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner

Dolly Wink by Japanese model/super gyaru, Tsubasa Masuwaka.

i've been so curious to try Dolly Wink products because of the hype, and let me tell you... for once, the hype was well deserved! (for the liner at least!) i do want to try Dolly Wink lashes, but they're a bit pricey compared to the cute and super cheap brands i currently buy. Dolly Wink = $17.99 (more or less)/2 pairs - and they only come in pairs - vs. Korean brands and my new fav, PA lashes = $2.50-$3.50/pair. i'm pretty sure i'll try Dolly Wink lashes one day though. ooohhhhkkay, on to my review for the liquid liner!

Koji Dolly Wink vs. my HG, K-Palette 1-Day Tattoo!
once again, please excuse my poor quality photos:

K-Palette 1-day Tattoo in black

the verdict: although i LOVE my K-Palette, i have to say i love Dolly Wink more! =X UH-OHHHHHHHH. why?

for one, it is VERY pigmented. the black is super black from the first use. (the picture above doesn't do it justice.) with K-Palette, you have to layer on a few coats in order to get it dark-dark. (i didn't mind it in the past because it stayed on forever.) however, Dolly Wink also has good lasting power! i wore this liner on a HOT day when i went to the racetrack this past weekend. it stayed put on my oily lids through the hot weather and my gross sweating.

water test:

Dolly Wink and K-Palette performed about the same under water. both did not budge; however, when rubbed approx 8-9 times, the liner washed off easily. i also tried this when removing it from my eyes later on @ night. it almost seems like the Dolly Wink liner is a better version of K-Palette. a cherry on top for the Dolly Wink is that it's a wee bit cheaper ($16 vs. $14.99). looks like i found a new HG!

Price: $14.99 (cheapest price online is $12.30 USD from an international website but it excludes shipping costs)
Where to Buy: asian cosmetic stores, certain Japanese markets, amazon.com, and sasa.com
Overall Rating: 5+/5 stars
Tip: try it!

I just happened to pick this up at the grocery store in SF Japantown. Definitely my HG eyeliner--the first one ever not to smudge on my oily lids, or run if my eyes tear.
