[Sponsored] Dolly Wink Eye Shadow Palette Number 3 in Blue/Orange [Colorful Pop]「ドーリーウインクアイシャドウ04 グリーピンク」
Before I kick off this review,
I noticed that this palette, Country Retro [Dolly Wink Number 3 in 
Blue/Orange] and Colorful Pop [Dolly Wink Number 4 in Green/PinkBeen] have 
both been removed from the Japan Koji Website Line-up.
I'm not 100% sure if it has been discontinued but I do advise whose who
want it/ procrastinating since forever about it to quickly grab it before it's
completely gone from the market.

With that, I will go into the review proper!
I had this item for super long but can't seem to do a proper look with it so I
decided to try it out along with this new short hair look and see how it goes.
In case you don't remember...

I've done reviews for every other palette except this!

So here I am, closing up this series with the final palette's verdict.
Product shots for you!
 

Close Up [True to picture]

I was skeptical about the color combination, being able to pull off for a wearable look or
not. While it is not exactly something you can wear to work, it really gives the "country
girl" look.

-Swatch to be inserted here-

The extremely enticing packaging

I'm sure some people don't see themselves using these colours yet buy it anyway.

Like the other 3 palettes, this one also comes with a step by step illustration to teach
you how to use the colours. Not the only way but if you want to stay safe since these
are colours not often used, 
you can follow it!
Don't have to know Japanese to understand it.

Shan't keep you waiting any further!

Dolly Wink Eye Shadow Palette Number 3 in Blue/
Orange 
[Country Retro]「ドーリーウインクアイシャドウ03ブルーオレンジ」:

Product Weight : Not stated [I suppose 2.5g/ 3g]

Product Ingredients: Talc, Dimethicone, Nylon-12, Isostearic Acid, Cetyl
Ethylhexanoate, Boron Nitride, Palm Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Aloe Vera Leaf
Extract, Methylparaben, Tocopherol, (+/-) Iron Oxide, Mica, Titanium Oxide,
Silica, Perfluorooctyl Triethoxysilane, Synthetic Phlogopite, Borosilicate (Ca/Al),
Tin Oxide, Titanate (Li/Co), Aluminium Hydroxide, Gunjou (?), Red 226, Red 202,
Green 404, Yellow 205

Product Type: Matte

Packaging: 8/10 - The black round casing is small and compact, thus easy to
bring around and hard to get dirty. I really love the little heart shaped window
on the top lid, allowing the colours to peek out! Simple yet classy. I might
have given it a 9.5 or even 10 if a little mirror was included somewhere.

Pigmentation: 7/10 - I think Dolly Wink shadows should be used with an
applicator instead of brush because they are a lot more pigmented that way.
When I use the brush, they always come off a lot lighter than what they look.
That aside, when I use an applicator, the color gets picked up pretty well and
looks rich. Color payoff is decent in just one swipe. [refer to swatch]

Texture: 8.5/10 - Smooth! The powder packed is really fine and smooth,
zero fallouts.

Blendability : 8/10 - It blends easily and nicely. I did not face any problem in
blending and ensuring a smooth transition from one colour to another at all!

Lasting Power: 9/10 - I'm not sure how well it will hold up without a primer
though, as I always use a primer when using eye shadows. Primers are
supposed to enchance and keep the color on your lids for long hours so I
guess this rating is pretty much expected.

Availability: 8/10 - While it is being sold in Watsons for a whooping SGD
$32.90, I will recommend buying from BlingAlways as they are only selling it
for SGD $25.90, an astonishing 21% cheaper than Watsons! All you have to
do is just wait for perhaps 2 weeks or so? You save SGD $7 for a palette
that's really a lot! 

Price: 8.5/10 - If you are buying from BlingAlways, I will say it's a 8.5/10 but
if you are talking about Watsons, I will only give it a 3/10. Personally, I will NOT
pay a whooping SGD $32.90 for a palette with just 4 colours. Nope, not even 
Tsubasa can make me do it. But if you purchase it from BlingAlways for only
SGD $25.90, it is totally worth it as many of the other drug store brand
palettes also cost around SGD $20 - SGD $25, not to mention this palettes has
a much cuter/ to die for packaging! 


Repurchase: Yes. It is not very expensive when purchased from BlingAlways,
easy to bring around since it's compact, and it's endorsed by Tsu-chan....
*Popteen/ Popsister Model released product sucker* Also, I'm actually
considering to buy 1 to keep as spare since it is probably discontinued!

Overall Rating: 7/10

I HIGHLY recommend Dolly wink lovers x Japan make up lovers x Tsu-chan
lovers to grab this! If you procrastinate any longer, it might be gone forever!

Remember to quote "Love Himeko" when you purchase from
BlingAlways to get free local postage!
Quick, grab your palette now!

[Review] Dolly Wink Otona Style Collection No. 14 - Natural Cute「ドーリーウインク(オトナめライン)アイラッシュ  No. 14ー ナチュラルキュート」
This is definitely my most efficient and fast completion of a promise to date.
(笑)
I've actually completed her whole Otona series review this fast!
Now, brace yourself for the final box of lash from Dolly Wink Otona Collection!

Dolly Wink No. 14 - Natural Cute「ナチュラルキュート

Visual Easy Rating for 
 Dolly Wink Otona Style 
Collection No. 14 - Natural Cute「ドーリーウインク(オ
トナめライン)アイラッシュ  No. 14ー ナチュラルキュー
 :

 Volume (6/10) - This pair is an improved version of her previous No. 5 -
Real Nude. To be honest, I don't really see any difference except for the last
3 stalks being just a tiny bit denser [by tiny, I really meant that. It's just about
1 stalk of lash (about 2 strands)].


 
Length (lash strands) [7/10] - It is somewhere mid length, like most of her
lower lashes. Honestly, I will say it is exactly the same as Real Nude.

 Length (lash band) [8/10] - This is the last time you will hear me saying this
(or at least until a year or two later when she launches new lashes again) -
The length of the band is a perfect fit for my eyes.

 
Ease of Application [9/10] - One try was all it took.

 
Comfort [9.25/10] - Like I said, Dolly Wink lower lashes got to be one of the
best I've tried, period.

 
Reusability [6.8/10] - I've used this pair thrice so far and unfortunately, the
same thing happened to it like when I used No.5 Real Nude over a year ago;
the last stalk towards the tail of the lash came off the lash for the right eye.
Knowing how fragile it can be, I was pretty gentle in cleaning it but it still
happened ): Pretty upset since I can't get this easily and have to order it and
go through a bit of waiting.


 
Availability [2/10] - This collection was launched back in November 2011, but
they did not start shipping/ taking orders to/from other countries until January 
2012, which is why I only got mine last week. I am intending to order spares
for myself since this collection is hard to get locally so if you are interested
(Singaporeans only), you can drop me an email at
mizuki.himeko@yahoo.com.sg which pair(s) of lashes from the Otona 
collection you fancy and quantity. 

 Price [6.8/10] - Compared to other brands out there [e.g diamond lash has
5 pairs in a box at a price even lower than dolly wink, which has just 2 pairs 
per box] and the fact that the last stalk came off after just 3 use, I am pretty
upset and felt that it might just be a tad bit overpriced for the compromised
quality on this pair [not sure if it's just this pair and that I am unlucky].

Repurchase - Yes. While there's much odds against this choice, I do love
Dolly wink lower lashes as it is versatile and suitable for daily use. 

  Overall Rating: 8/10  

*Yes, I am really irked by the lash falling off just after 3 uses. Should my next
pair last longer, I will reassess this review*

I'm as amazed as you are, that I actually followed through the whole series
and did reviews for them all this fast!

[Review] Dolly Wink Otona Style Collection No. 11 - Pure Sweet「ドーリーウインク(オトナめライン)アイラッシュ  No. 11ー ピュアスイート」
You know, you guys should be less lazy and scroll a little further next time.
All the previous Otona lashes reviews have been updated with new pictures
that I had taken personally, including clear close up of the lash.
That aside, let's jump in to another review after the 1 day break from them!

Collection No. 11 - Pure Sweet「ドーリーウインク(オ
トナめライン)アイラッシュ  No. 11ー ピュアスイー
 :

 Volume (6/10) - The first impression of these lashes I got; they look super
neat. The volume is not dense but the 2 bunches of lash stalks in 1 section
with criss crossed corners and one such stalk to join the sections together,
making it look complete.

 Length (lash strands) [7.5/10] - It is the longest one of the 3 upper lashes
from this collection. Still a slight bit shorter than her first lash collection (No. 1
& No. 2).

 Length (lash band) [8/10] - I don't mean to sound like a broken tape
recorder but the fact is that her lash band is indeed the same length as her
previous dolly wink collection and if you read my past reviews of dolly wink
lashes, you will know that the length is just right for my liking.

 Ease of Application [9/10] - Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

 
Comfort [9.25/10] - Lightweight, don't feel it weighing my eyelids down.
The soft lash band certainly contributes to the comfort department.

 
Reusability [8.5/10] - After 3 uses, it still looks as good as new. The picture
above was taken after I cleaned it after the 3 uses. I suppose the pretty neat
lash design makes the cleaning a little easier than the other 2 pairs from the
Otona range. I can see this pair lasting pretty long.

 
Availability [2/10] - This collection was launched back in November 2011, but
they did not start shipping/ taking orders to/from other countries until January 
2012, which is why I only got mine last week. I do want to purchase more
spares for myself due to it's unavailability here in Singapore so if you are 
interested, do drop me an email at mizuki.himeko@yahoo.com.sg stating
which pairs you want and quantity.

 Price [7/10] - Compared to other brands out there [e.g diamond lash has
5 pairs in a box at a price even lower than dolly wink, which has just 2 pairs 
per box], it is definitely not a happy price. I do love this design a lot as it is one
of the pair where it comes off really natural.

 Overall Rating: 9/10

*I really really like this a lot more than I thought I will! When I first saw it, I
was like "hmm..." but after putting it on, I really loved the effect and how
natural it looked! To make things even better, it is easy to clean! ^^ I'm
actually wearing this pair in the photo at the end of this entry.*

[Review] Dolly Wink Otona Style Collection No. 13 - Baby Girl「ドーリーウインク(オトナめライン)アイラッシュ  No. 13ーベイビーガールー」
Say I'm awesome!
I've realised that before this wave of Otona reviews, my last review was way
back last November! That's about 3 months ago!
Gosh, I'm such a slacker.
I remember I wanted to be a "lash" review-er, thus my obsession with lashes
started and as you all know... I have so much that I bought and haven't even
tried on [some of which I bought at least 1 year ago...]
Okay, digressing too far!

Visual Easy Rating for 
 Dolly Wink Otona Style 
Collection No. 13 - Baby Girl「ドーリーウインク(オ
トナめライン)アイラッシュ  No. 13ー ベイビーガール
 :

 Volume (6.75/10) - Thin stalks, thick stalks, thin stalks. I like the
interchanging volume of lash stalks which makes it pretty balanced and look
much more natural. Thumbs up to that! Most lashes are either thin stalks all
the way or thicker stalks towards the tail.


 
Length (lash strands) [7/10] - It is somewhere mid-long, just right in my
opinion; maintained the natural lash style while still being able to be used for
slightly louder looks.

 Length (lash band) [8/10] - Again, same length as her previous dolly wink
bottom lashes and well, lucky me, it fits my lower lids perfectly :3

 
Ease of Application [9/10] - Once I put it on, I'm ready to leave the house.
No re-adjustments needed.

 
Comfort [9.5/10] - It is barely there, almost non existent. [However, to give
benefit to other brands of lower lashes, most lower lashes are small, light and
short enough to give the same comfort]

 
Reusability [8.5/10] - So far, I've used it just once and I was able to clean
the lash with much ease. I do take extra care in cleaning bottom lashes
because most of the time, for upper lashes, you can still wear them if a stalk
or so is missing from the lash but in case of lower lashes, it is very obvious 
when a stalk is missing.


 
Availability [2/10] - This collection was launched back in November 2011, but
they did not start shipping/ taking orders to/from other countries until January 
2012, which is why I only got mine last week. I am not doing pre-order for it 
any more as it is pretty tough to hit the supplier demands for this [need 40 
orders] or else I will have to raise my selling price of the lashes as the price
will be much higher should I not hit their minimum request.

 Price [7.25/10] - Compared to other brands out there [e.g diamond lash has
5 pairs in a box at a price even lower than dolly wink, which has just 2 pairs 
per box], it is definitely not a happy price. However, I do love the quality of 
the 
dolly wink lashes so I am willing to pay for them [and for collection
purposes] 
This rating was given after taking into consideration that while I am
willing to 
pay, there are many others who might feel it is not worth it. I do feel
that dolly wink bottom lashes are a MUST-HAVE for every gyaru, be it
collection or for wearing. 
An extra point for the unique design of this pair of
bottom lashes.

 Repurchase - Yes. 70% for using it and 30% for collection sake. Looks
normal and boring but very versatile [besides, being normal is actually weird
when it comes to these Japan lashes, don't you think?]


  Overall Rating: 8.75/10 

*As you might have realised, pretty high rating again. This is because of how
versatile I see this pair of lashes, not because of Tsubasa!

 :

 Volume (7.5/10) - The lashes are criss crossed and gradually straightens
towards the tail of the lash. Since the front is shorter [lash strand], it does
not make the lash look too dense, only towards the tail does it look dense.

 Length (lash strands) [7/10] - I was procrastinating between 6.5 and 7 but
settled for 7 to be fair to the longer strands from the middle towards the tail.

 Length (lash band) [8/10] - Once again, love the length as she kept it
unchanged [I believe all her upper lashes have lash bands this long] meaning
it fits my eyes perfectly while giving the illusion of my eyes being wider.

 
Ease of Application [8.75/10] - While it still is very easy to apply, it fell short
just a tad bit, I had to spent an extra 3 [or so] seconds in adjusting the inner
corner. Definitely not something you should make a bit hoo-ha over but I
thought I should still mention it.

 
Comfort [9.25/10] - As I've said before, Dolly Wink lashes remains as one of
the top lashes I've used thus far in terms of comfort.

 
Reusability [7.25/10] -  I've used this pair thrice so far and while I do not
see any signs of it falling apart any time soon, I have to say the cleaning
process is slightly more tedious and thus I foresee some girls cutting slack in
the cleaning process or being overly concerned about cleanliness and thus
exerting too much pressure on it, damaging it. Due to the design of the lash
stalks (?) being pretty tight on the lash band and the criss cross pattern, glue
bits might get stuck, be extremely stubborn and thus hard to remove. Extra
patience needed when you handle this pair!

 
Availability [2/10] - This collection was launched back in November 2011, but
they did not start shipping/ taking orders to/from other countries until January 
2012, which is why I only got mine last week. I am not doing pre-order for it 
any more as it is pretty tough to hit the supplier demands for this [need 40 
orders] or else I will have to raise my selling price of the lashes as the price
will be much higher should I not hit their minimum request.

 Price [6.5/10] - Compared to other brands out there [e.g diamond lash has
5 pairs in a box at a price even lower than dolly wink, which has just 2 pairs 
per box], it is definitely not a happy price. However, I do love the quality of 
the 
dolly wink lashes so I am willing to pay for them [and for collection
purposes] 
This rating was given after taking into consideration that while I am
willing to 
pay, there are many others who might feel it is not worth it. I did
notice that the general design of this lash is similar to Diamond lash's light
pink tray's DL51593 Girly [Review here] which is why I gave this aspect a lower
rating.
 
 Repurchase - Yes. I will say, 60% for using it and 40% for collection sake.
Not because I don't love this pair, but because I have too much eyelashes to
choose from. 

  Overall Rating: 8/10 

*I think that her whole (new) collection is made for natural looking eye make
up which is why this pair does not look too outrageous when worn. That
being said, I do see the possibility of it being used with, say Dolly Wink
pink/gray palette, and still able to rock the look*


While you are reading this...
I'm probably on the way to Singapore!
I will changed the pictures once I've taken them when I'm back in Singapore :3

I'm being productive, yay!
I did not take pictures personally this time, shall try to do that when I get
home and replace these official ones so you get a more "real" (?) experience.
I'm still in Malaysia and the boxes are back home in Singapore~
I know some people might be skeptical about studio taken and released
pictures.

Collection No. 12 - Natural Dolly「ドーリーウインク(オ
トナめライン)アイラッシュ  No. 12ーナ フェミニンガー
 :


 Volume (6.5/10) - The lashes are uniquely and boldly criss crossed,
definitely not impressive volume but gives off an effect that it is denser than
what it really is! Not a design I've seen before in other brands [Diamond lash
does have a similar one released before dolly wink otona but that one is a
tad bit denser than this.

 
Length (lash strands) [7.5/10] - It is pretty long [probably the longest from 
Tsubasa's eyelashes lines thus far] but it is not overwhelming thanks to the 
criss cross design which made the sparse lashes look dense. I'm pretty sure if 
a few more criss crossed sections were added, it will look much more intense.

 Length (lash band) [8/10] - It is pretty much the same length as her 
previous dolly wink bottom lashes and luckily for me, it fits my lower lids
perfectly.

 
Ease of Application [9/10] - This new line definitely reiterates the point for 
superb ease of application. I always gets it right with one try, even for bottom 
lashes :3

 
Comfort [9.25/10] - It is barely there, really. No instances of it poking my 
eyes, whatsoever. Dolly Wink lower lashes got to be one of the best I've tried!

 
Reusability [7.5/10] - As I have only used this pair twice [I had just gotten 
mine last week] I cannot really tell how long before it wears off. Just note that 
the usual applies; do be gentle when cleaning your lashes [I soak them in tap 
water for about 3-5 minutes then I will peel the glue bits off] and so far my pair
still looks as good as new after 2 washes. I do have to emphasize that I am
EXTREMELY gentle when cleaning these babies as it is really difficult for me to
repurchase them and I don't want to have a few stalks missing this early into
using them!

 
Availability [2/10] - This collection was launched back in November 2011, but
they did not start shipping/ taking orders to/from other countries until January 
2012, which is why I only got mine last week. I am not doing pre-order for it 
any more as it is pretty tough to hit the supplier demands for this [need 40

will be much higher should I not hit their minimum request.

 Price [7/10] - Compared to other brands out there [e.g diamond lash has

per box], it is definitely not a happy price. However, I do love the quality of 
the

purposes] 
This rating was given after taking into consideration that while I am
willing to 
pay, there are many others who might feel it is not worth it. But
really, dolly wink bottom lashes is a MUST-HAVE for every gyaru.

 Repurchase - Yes. This pair is really unique and I really loved wearing it!

  Overall Rating: 8.75/10 

*I was SO tempted to give it a 9 due to the comfort level, unique lash design
which does not make it unwearable with natural make up but I think the
unavailability here in Singapore is a major setback for many. This pair of lashes

is very versatile, be it natural or darker eye makeup, go ahead and explore!

I am definitely on a roll roll roll!

Visual Easy Rating for  Dolly Wink Otona Style 
Collection No. 09 - Natural Dolly「ドーリーウインク(オ
トナめライン)アイラッシュ  No. 9ーナチュラルドーリ
ー」:

 Volume (7/10) - The lashes are criss-crossed, so although it is not exactly
really dense, it gives off an effect denser than what it really is.

 Length (lash strands) [7/10] - Much shorter than Tsubasa's first line of 
eyelashes. Like what she mentioned, she is trying to graduate from the cutesy 
style and go for a more womanly image.

 Length (lash band) [8/10] - Despite the lash strands and volume being 
shorter and less dense respectively, the lash band still remained long, much to 
my delight. I love to have longer lash bands that extend out towards the tail of
my eyes to give them the effect of being longer.

 Ease of Application [9/10] - This new line definitely reiterates the point for 
superb ease of application. I always gets it right with one try.

 Comfort [9.25/10] - It is barely there, really. No instances of it poking my 
eyes, whatsoever.

 Reusability [7.5/10] - As I have only used this pair twice [I had just gotten 
mine last week] I cannot really tell how long before it wears off. Just note that 
the usual applies; do be gentle when cleaning your lashes [I soak them in tap 
water for about 3-5 minutes then I will peel the glue bits off] and so far my pair
still looks as good as new after 2 washes.

 Availability [2/10] - This collection was launched back in November 2011, but
they did not start shipping/ taking orders to/from other countries until January
2012, which is why I only got mine last week. I am not doing pre-order for it 
any more as it is pretty tough to hit the supplier demands for this [need 40 
orders] or else I will have to raise my selling price of the lashes as the price
will be much higher should I not hit their minimum request.

 Price [6.75/10] - Compared to other brands out there [e.g diamond lash has
5 pairs in a box at a price even lower than dolly wink, which has just 2 pairs 
per box], it is definitely not a happy price. However, I do love the quality of the 
dolly wink lashes so I am willing to pay for them [and for collection purposes]
This rating was given after taking into consideration that while I am willing to 
pay, there are many others who might feel it is not worth it.

 Repurchase - Yes. I will say, 60% for using it and 40% for collection sake.
Not because I don't love this pair, but because I have too much eyelashes to
choose from.


  Overall Rating: 8.5/10 

*I was hesitating between a 8.5 and 9 and decided on 8.5. The comfort 
aspect is really important for me but I had to take into consideration the fact 
that it is not easily available outside Japan at all and the price compared to
competitors' brands. Looks like I've kinda changed my style of grading, eh?
This eyelash is very suitable for natural look!*

Well, as promised on my
facebook page ^^ 
I know a lot of people are dying to see reviews of this collection and I thought
this should be my priority once I receive them! [Afterall, I'm pretty sure it's just
a matter of time before Watsons bring them into Singapore]

Koji Japan Dolly Wink 2011 New Launch [Slanted to be released on 11.11.21]
THAT'S RIGHT PEOPLE!
I was going to blog about Dragon Nest today but THIS PIECE OF NEWS CANNOT WAIT!

Our favourite Gyaru queen, Tsubasa Masuwaka, is finally releasing new 
products for her dolly wink line!
By new products, I don't mean she hasn't been doing it [she released dolly 
wink eye shadow and mascara earlier this year], but for me, what I was really
looking forward to is new eyelashes from her.

YES, IT IS FINALLY HAPPENING!

The pictures are not tip top quality [I think these are pictures released to their
distributors] but you get the gist of what's coming!

Firstly, she will be releasing 6 new types of false eyelashes!
^ They are
No. 9 - Natural Dolly 「ナチュラルドーリー」
No. 10 -  Sweet Cat  「スイートチャット」
No. 11 - Pure Sweet 「ピュアスイート」
No. 12 -Feminine Girl 「フェミニンガール」
No. 13 - Baby Girl 「ベイビーガールー」
No. 14 - Natural Cute 「ナチュラルキュート」

Besides the much anticipated [at least for me] eyelashes, the eyelash glue
had been improved + a new glue is available now! [nothing much is written,
I'm guessing perhaps the pink packaging will dry clear while the black one
will dry black?]
50% stronger!

This time round, she released a whole lot of brow grooming products!
Firstly, Eye Brow Pencils!
^ Comes in 3 colours, namely:
1. Honey Brown 「ハニーブラウン」 (Lightest)
2. Chocolate Brown 「チョコブラウン」
3. Dark Shokora (?) *I'm guessing it was supposed to be choco* 「ダークジョ
コラ」(Natural colour)

Next, Eye Brow Mascara
^ Comes in 3 colours, namely:
1. Milk Tea 「ミルクティー」
2. Mocca 「モカ」
3. Cocoa 「ココア」

And finally, Eye Brow Powder!
^ 3 types of palettes, namely:
1. Honey Brown 「ハニーブラウン」
2. Chocolate Brown 「チョコブラウン」
3. Dark Shokora (?) *I'm guessing it was supposed to be choco* 「ダークジョコ
ラ」(Natural colour)

Now that we are done with all the awesome new products, there are 3 
products which will sell in a "package" form as limited edition!
Dolly Wink Mascara x Newly packaged Dolly Wink Eye Liner

Dolly Wink Long [Lengthening] Mascara x Dolly Wink Eye Liner

Dolly Wink Volume Mascara x Dolly Wink Eye Liner

Are you excited?
I sure am!
Personally, I can't wait to lay my hands on all the lashes and glue!
I will probably grab the new limited edition mascara x eye liner packages too!
[I think I have over 10 eye liners at home but.. I'm such a sucker for packaging!]

Okay, hope you guys liked this update!
So so so psyched for it!
I'm considering to pre-order for them, will be asking for response on my
SPREE PAGE so if you are interested, do leave a comment and how many
boxes/ what items you are interested in. I have a minimum cap to meet if I
really want to order.

[Sponsored] Dolly Wink Eye Shadow Palette Number 1 in Brown [Sweet Dolly] Review
When it comes to eye make, we have to admit that the safest [thus, 
quickest as it's kinda brainless] kind of eye make will be the neutral/ browns!


I've been trying/ playing around with colors a lot but I still have my late days which
I will do quick eye make and this palette comes in very handy for that (:
The palette I used to create this is Dolly Wink Eye Shadow Palette Number 1 in 
Brown [Sweet Dolly]
The colours in the palette are so easy to work with and complement so well with each
other; I don't have to think much about what colour to use beside which!

Very wearable, everyday look! You can cut back on the falsies if you are going for a
lighter/ non-gyaru look.

Now for the full list of products I used!
[Those that I've reviewed before are pink in colour, hyperlinked to the respective post]

Face:
Candy Doll Makeup Base
Candy Doll Concealer [Shade 01]
Candy Doll Mineral Powder
Eyemazing Cosmeline Cheek Color in Sweet Pink
Candy Doll Highlight Marshmallow Purple 「キャンディドールハイライト マシュマロパープル」

Eyes:
Dolly Wink Eye Shadow Palette Number 1 in Brown [Sweet Dolly]/
ドーリーウインクアイシャドウ01 ブラウン
Dolly Wink Eyelash Glue
Eyemazing x Zipper No. 802 [Upper Lash]
Eyemazing x Zipper No. 810 [Lower Lash]

Lips:
Candy Doll Lipstick in ラムネピンク [Ramune Pink]

Once again, with exception of those in italics, everything else can be found
at 
BlingAlways!
I've blogged about it over HERE.

Here's a close-up of how the colours from the shadow palette look [true to picture]

They look slightly shimmery but when applied on the lids, it is not all that shimmery
at all (:
Compared to the other 2 that I've previously reviewed,
I think it's only a very slight touch which helps to enhance the shadows.
This is how they look when swatched on the back of my left hand.

I always die at their packaging.

But it's such a pity Tsu-chan is no longer a popsister model... [Or should I say, 
popsister is even not in publication anymore... ): ]

Step by Step illustration to teach you how to use the colours.
Don't have to know Japanese to understand it, if you want to stay safe the first time
using it, I recommend following the easy guide (:
But to be very honest, the colours are so easy to work with, you don't really need to
follow any guide at all!

Now, the review!

Dolly Wink Eye Shadow Palette Number 1 in Brown
[Sweet Dolly]
「ドーリーウインクアイシャドウ01 ブラウン」:

Product Weight : Not stated.

Product Ingredients: Talc, Dimethicone, Nylon-12, Isostearic Acid, Cetyl 
Ethylhexanoate, Boron Nitride, Palm Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Aloe Vera Leaf 
Extract, Methylparaben, Tocopherol, (+/-) Iron Oxide, Mica, Titanium Oxide, 
Silica, Perfluorooctyl Triethoxysilane, Synthetic Phlogopite, Borosilicate (Ca/Al), Tin Oxide, Titanate (Li/Co), Aluminium Hydroxide, Gunjou (?), Red 226, 
Red 202, Green 404, Yellow 205

Product Type: Shimmery

Packaging: 8/10 - The black round casing is small and compact, thus easy to
bring around and hard to get dirty. I really love the little heart shaped window
on the top lid, allowing the colours to peek out! Simple yet classy.

Pigmentation: 7.5/10 - I find myself swiping my brush on the shadows a little harder to
 pick up the shadow for application, probably due to experience from
the previous 2 palettes and I find the colours going on the brush pretty well. Using brush/ sponge, the color payoff was amazing *pictured above*
1 swipe was all it took to achieve the color intensity shown in the picture 
above.

Texture: 8.5/10 - Smooth! The powder packed is really fine and smooth, did 
not experience fallouts at all!.

Blendability : 9.5/10 - It blends easily and nicely. I did not face any problem in
blending and ensuring a smooth transition from one colour to another at all!
On top of that, the colours are SO EASY to match/ play with! 

Lasting Power: 9/10 
- I'm not sure how it will fare without a primer cos I always use a primer prior to applying powder eye shadow. Lasted over 10 
hours without budging.

Availability: 8/10 - While it is being sold in Watsons for a whooping SGD
$32.90, I will recommend buying from BlingAlways as they are only selling it
for SGD $25.90, an astonishing 21% cheaper than Watsons! All you have to
do is just wait for perhaps 2 weeks or so? You save SGD $7 for a palette, 
that's really a lot!

Price: 8.5/10 - If you are buying from BlingAlways, I will say it's a 8.5/10 but
if you are talking about Watsons, I will only give it a 3/10. Personally, I will 
NOT pay a whooping SGD $32.90 for a palette with just 4 colours. Nope, not
even Tsubasa can make me do it. But if you purchase it from BlingAlways for 
only SGD $25.90, it is totally worth it as many of the other drug store brand 
palettes also cost around SGD $20 - SGD $25, not to mention this palettes 
has a much cuter/ to die for packaging! 

Repurchase: Yes. It is not very expensive when purchased from BlingAlways,
easy to bring around since it's compact, neutrals is something everyone
definitely MUST have so yes yes and YES!

Overall Rating: 8.5/10

This was the palette that caught my eyes when she came out with the
collection but I didn't plan on getting it because I have so many huge brown
palettes at home.
However, I then realised that because of that mindset, I don't have any brown
palettes that I can actually bring around with me ^^;; Thus this was a GREAT
choice (:

Like the previous Monotone Mode Palette that I've reviewed;
Shimmery, yes.
Sparkly/ Glittery, not really.
This is how they look when swatched on the back of my left hand. (Sorry, a little blur)

More Tsu-chan to drool at~

Tsu-chan is so pretty~

Step by Step illustration to teach you how to use the colours.
Don't have to know Japanese to understand it, if you want to stay safe the first time
using it, I recommend following the easy guide (:
You can always play around a little after you are more used to the colours/ look!

Now, the review proper!

Dolly Wink Eye Shadow Palette Number 4 in 
Green/Pink [Colorful Pop]
「ドーリーウインクアイシャドウ04 グリーピンク」:

Product Weight : Not stated.

on the top lid, allowing the colours to peek out! Simple yet classy.

Pigmentation: 7.5/10 - I do find this slightly more pigmented as compared to
the Monotone Mode one. Not sure if it has to do with my technique or 
something though. Using both brush/ sponge, the color payoff was great.
1 swipe was all it took to achieve the color intensity shown in the picture 
above.

Texture: 8.5/10 - Smooth! The powder packed is really fine and smooth, did 
not experience fallouts at all!.

Blendability : 8/10 - It blends easily and nicely. I did not face any problem in
blending and ensuring a smooth transition from one colour to another at all!

*Popteen/ Popsister Model released product sucker* 

Overall Rating: 8/10

This was the palette that caught my eyes when she came out with the
collection; LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT :3
Besides, green eye shadow has been a hot choice of color this year. Stay in trend!
Be a little more adventurous and you might love it (:
