WHY I LIKE THIS PRODUCT
This is my first time using any type of eyelid product. Let me give you a little background about my eye type: I have tapered eyelids. A tapered crease means that the eyelid fold runs parallel to the eyelid’s edge along its full course until it approaches the side of the eye closest the nose. From there, it gradually drops in height. Here is a diagram that I found on the internet about the most common type of eyelids for Asians:

I find that the most annoying thing about having tapered eyelids is the fact that sometimes if I do not get enough sleep or if I cried prior to sleeping, the next morning, my eyelids will be uneven. As a result, I may have one eyelid that’s double and one eyelid that’s mono. It’s quite irritating when I am trying to apply on my makeup. So I decided to try out eyelid tape for evening out my eyelids during those times. Thus, I don’t use this product on a daily basis, just when I have uneven lids in the morning.


You can tell that I have the eyelid tape on my right eye and without it on my left eye. This product is very easy to use! I really like the fact that the eyelid tape have these blue tabs that you tear off on the sides which help you put them on without actually touching the actual sticky part of the tape. I would suggest not tearing them off because that may cause stress on your eyelids. So instead, I use a pair of tiny scissors to cut them off. As for the fork applicator, I never touched it! :P


This is how the eyelid tape looks when in photos. I have heard that this is one of the most invisible eyelid tapes on the market, but I think it’s still very visible! But that’s probably because I haven’t tried anything else. I did however, had problems with the edges of the tape. I find that as the day progresses, it would just peel off a little bit near the corners of my eyes. It’s supposed to be sweat proof, but I find that with my oily eyelids, this is not the case. The price of this product ranges from $5-$8 depending on where you purchase it. It’s very affordable for 30 pieces of the item.


Here’s a final shot of how my eyes look like after applying makeup. I must admit that I do enjoy the extra lid space that I have to work with for any eye shadow.
