Like most conscious girly asians, I have eyelid insecurities too! And I’ve tried a lot of different kinds of eyelid enlarging products such as tapes, glues, and fibers..
There are, of course, some problems~
For eyelid tape, they are visible when worn.
For eyelid glues, poke your eyelids every time.
For eyelid fibers, need scissors. MEH.
So even tho they get the job done, I’m still on a lookout for something that will ease my daily discomfort and struggles on my make-up routine with the said products.
It’s a good thing I heard about Ms. BowBow! It’s been around for years but I only get to read a review about it last year. And I had to wait till my eyelid tape from Etude House ran out. I quickly ordered these from eBay for 12 pounds. It’s quite expensive tbh but it’s worth it!
The packaging is really cute, right? It’s a very well thought of product if I say so myself~A short instruction on how to use them is provided on the back panel— if you can read Chinese. If not, don’t despair. It’s quite self explanatory anyway haha.
Inside you can find 7 sheets of the eyelid “lace", glue/spirit gum, tweezers, transparent film that serves as the tray.
Basically, you take the lace out lay it on the tray film and spread glue over it, once semi-dry you put it on your eyelids using the tweezers. If you are an experienced eyelid tape user, the placement is no longer a problem but if you’re still a beginner, it won’t hurt to practice first.
So what makes this product better?
Well on a closer look, instead of a regular tape, we use a thin lace that helps the visibility appear more subtle while the half-moon shape helps to create maximum eyelid enlargement and the use of spirit gum seals the deal cuz it can last for days if you don’t remove it. You can also put make up over it and it would still look invincible. Removing them is surprisingly easy too, just wipe firmly with make-up remover and off they go~
See? I don’t have to sell my soul to Satan for an easier way to create impressive eyelids. I don’t have to worry if people are staring at my eyelid tape when talking to me. I don’t even have to answer “You have something on your eyes”.
Lastly, I don’t need to pressure myself for an eyelid surgery.
