I saw an article a few days ago on The Daily Fail about a product by Eye Secrets, called the Instant Eye Lift Strips. These sticky strips fit into the eyelid to pull up the skin and create a more ‘open’ eye look.
A good result. And this is what it looks like:
So I kept reading…then I say that these cost £29.99 for a months supply…
Wait a minute! It looks just like Eyelid Tape!
For those who don’t know, Eyelid Tape has been used across Asia (especially countries like Japan, Korea, China, Hong Kong etc.) where ladies tend to have a mono lid (ie. no crease) for years. Applying the eyelid tape at the base of the eyelid or higher, can create or accentuate a fold. It creates a ‘lifting’ effect too, depending on how you apply it.
You can buy the tape in various thicknesses, you can also buy special glue and Y shaped tool that you apply to the eye lid and creates a fold (so you can omit the strip altogether).
Eyelid Tape is very cheap to buy; 99p – £5 in most cases – yes, some brands will be better than others, but a lot of the time, this kind of product is down to the application as opposed to the price of the product. Just so you know, there is a cheaper alternative out there!
What do you think? Would you try these?
Me: I have bought a pack of lid tape before to try but they didn’t do much for me. I also found them a bit uncomfortable – I just don’t like things stuck to my eyes and would never be able to keep up with wearing these every day.
