Dolly Wink is founded by the Japanese brand Koji and Gyaru/model, Tsubasa Masuwaka. Maybe you've been living in a cave for the past two years but Dolly Wink is hot stuff in Japan and has even crept its way into the west. It's an expensive drugstore brand and slightly hard to get a hold of in stores but there is an mass of online shops that would love your service. LORAC is also expensive but you can easily find it at your local ULTA, Sephora, and online too.
The Dolly Wink false eyelashes are all the rage and more so the liquid eyeliner. The liner is pen-styled and has a very fine brush applicator. Dolly Wink in comparison to the LORAC Front of the Line PRO Liquid Eyeliner is more feminine looking but the design of the pens are identical.
For someone who doesn't wear a whole lot of eyeliner, I seem to be attracted to the pen style liners most. The base of the brush on Dolly Wink is slightly wider but I don't find that affects how thinly my lines are drawn.
Dolly Wink is opaque in one swift swipe but LORAC requires 2 or 3 at most.
They are waterproof but and combined with a rub test, it's smudge proof. It smears on a combination of un-primed, oily, and tapered eyelids but works normally on primed eyes. The lasting power is roughly 6 to 8 hours.
L-to-R: LORAC / Dolly Wink
To properly remove the liners I need to combine a cleansing water or duo phased eye make up remover with a cleansing oil. If I'm lucky enough a cleansing oil alone will do the trick but that's very rare.
Both eyeliners end up costly; Dolly Wink is $13.10 on Sasa (not including shipping nor taxes) and LORAC is $23US/$26CAD (not including taxes) at Sephora. Dolly Wink will inevitably end up most costly if purchased through E(vil)bay sellers and small online shops due to mysterious inflation.
I recommend both Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner and LORAC Front of the Line PRO Liquid Liner but more so the latter. LORAC is much easier to purchase and in the end, Dolly Wink is roughly in the $20 ball park because of shipping charges and inflation. The results are nearly the same.
