Sometimes I buy an item just for fun. That was the case with these Eye Rock Eye Tattoos I got off Ebay for a mere $0.99. As it turned out, they're easy to use and have a good effect. There are also some downsides... but more after we take a closer look at the tattoos.
You get two tattoos in the package: one for your left and the other for your right eye. The design is protected with plastic sheet which you take off before applying the tattoo. It works the same as those tattoos we used as kids.
How to apply the eye tattoo:
- Make sure the area around your eyes is clean and free of any beauty product.
- Remove the plastic sheet off the design.
- Place the design on your eyes and go over the paper with a piece of wet sponge. Make sure it's really wet and not just damp. The paper will come off once the design adheres to the skin.
- Wait for a couple of minutes before applying any other makeup.
As you can see, my tattoo cracked a little, but I was surprised how quickly it sticked to my skin. It felt sticky for a minute before it dried completely. Later I could apply my make up without problems and the tattoo didn't bother me at all (no tugging or weird feeling). I had some troubles removing the tattoo, but in the end oil based waterproof make up remover did the job. Eye Tattoos aren't for everyday use, but I think they're great for special occasions... I didn't think I'd like it that much. They're cheap, they look quite nice and are very easy to use.
Have you tried this kind of eye tattoos?
Thanks for looking and commenting!
