My search for an eyelid tape that works on my natural creases has finally ended with D-Up Wonder Eyelid Tape Extra!
The tape comes in two types, Extra, the one I am reviewing, and Mild. Both are made out of the same material, the only difference is that Extra is slightly “harder” to create a more defined line.
The pack contains 120 pieces of pre-cut double-sided tape, a v-shaped applicator and an instruction booklet. The instructions are in Japanese but as you can see below, the pictures are very helpful and easy to understand.
The tape itself is very thin and measures 0.09mm thick and roughly 2.4cm long. It fits my eye perfectly without sticking out and no trimming/cutting is required at all. It is also transparent, non-reflective and unlike the pre-cut eyelid tapes or medical tape, it feels a lot smoother and does not have any ridges. I find it much more comfortable to wear and when applied right, it feels like nothing at all.
Application is fast and easy (it takes me ~1 minute to do both eyes) and it doesn’t take long to get the hang of it either. While the instructions specify to use the tape on clean skin, I would recommend applying it after your eyeshadow if you plan on wearing any. I find that if I apply a lot of powder eyeshadow over the tape, it can come off easier.
The results are handsdown the most natural I have ever seen! You cannot tell the tape is on at all unless you look down or close your eyes (which is an inevitable downside of using eyelid tapes). Plus the tape really helps define my natural crease, making me look less tired.
Another thing I like is how well the tape stays on. I can wear it for 10 hours straight and it will not peel, shift or irritate my skin. Removing the tape is pretty painless as well. All you need to do is soak a cotton pad with makeup remover and leave on your eyelids for 15 to 30 seconds and the tape will come off easily.
My only gripe is the price and availability. Compared to traditional pre-cut eyelid tapes or medical tapes, this goes for $18 to $20 on most websites, which can be twice as much.
Nonetheless, D-Up Wonder Eyelid Tape is a great product and I highly recommend it for single eyelids, uneven or multiple creases.
