Happy Friday! I Can't believe it's February O_o I only posted twice in January!!!! Gahhh!!! Need to show more love on my own blog yo O_O
Before I start, just want to make it clear that I DON'T OWN ANY OF THESE IMAGES. These pictures are taken from a Taiwanese blogger-- ♥ 小季的變漂亮Blog ♥ . For those who are able to read Chinese, feel free to check out her blog ^_^
So I was reading her blog the other day and was very intrigued... it's like a whole new concept of double eyelid tape O_O+
You can read the full post here:
Left is before the eyelid tape, right is after (although she wasn't talking about the eyelid tape in this particular pic... she was talking about her Botox/face lift experience that made her face shape become more V-lined and lifted).
So anyway, although 小季 (author of the blog) already has pretty nice natural lids, she was saying her eyelids have started to droop a tiny bit due to age (!!! ... makes me kind of worried about my own... I have a lot less eyelid space than her orz...) and whenever she wears false lashes, her eyelids get overwhelmed by the lashes and becomes virtually invisible (which... I completely disagree XD but you know everyone has their own standards). So even though she already has double eyelid fold, she likes to apply tape to make her lid space wider.
Guys-- check out this whole new generation (? lol! might be exaggerating a bit here haha) of eyelid tape!!
It's basically a flesh-colored mesh of net... pretty cool huh??? It comes with a glue (you actually have to apply the glue to the mesh before you apply it to your eyelid).
I have no idea where to purchase this by the way. As far as I know, it's called 撥撥小姐超隱形雙眼皮貼 and it's a Taiwanese brand.
****Update: I've now spotted this at Sasa in Taiwan! But I don't see it on the actual Sasa website... so I don't know O_O I didn't purchase it cuz I really don't need it lol
With this eyelid tape, you apply it over your makeup.
She likes to touch up on the eyeliner after applying the mesh.
Looks pretty natural huh? I think the advantage of this tape is that when you look down, you wouldn't see an obvious line where traditional double-sided eyelid tapes glue your lids together, or the traditional tapes that have the plastic, reflective quality that is very obvious to spot. Not to mention when you apply the tape over your makeup it's more natural-- most traditional eyelid tapes limit/ruin the wear of eye makeup.
This is after she trimmed and adjusted the tape for her own eye shape. Looks even more natural (and yes she was aware one of her false lashes was sticking out lol).

After seeing this post, of course I jumped on Google and searched for other reviews and stuff. I have to say, her eyelids/tutorial is by far the most natural-looking... (might be due to her eye shape... lighting can wash it out too... but whatever the reason... this tape just looks so much better on her than any other ones I've seen) I've seen quite a few other posts/reviews... I feel like the mesh and glue all look so unnatural and obvious. But they all claimed it only looked so obvious because they were taking close-up pictures, and the tape really isn't that visible if you're looking at someone from a normal distance.
So conclusion, who knows =P nevertheless still intrigued. Might try it one day when I go back to Taiwan, but not trying to get my hands on those at the moment lol.
Hmm hope you guys found this post entertaining? XD
Until I can come up with an idea of what to blog about next time, take care guys! Don't get sick!!
