Reviewing two packs of eyelashes I’ve gotten and had a month to test these out. One, by Jewerich, has been making the English and Japanese speaking gal blogosophere rounds with lots of hype. The other, NYX “Princess Tiara” produced by Nicorun, have barely been getting any talk.
I thought they’d be great to talk about together because they’re similar styles and have the same price: 1260 yen (around $15.00). These are the two brands trying to compete with Tsubasa produced Dollywink for the gal fancy eyelash buying.
Short & sweet review: That’s really a shame. NYX Eyelashes are great.

Princess Tiara brand has 3 top lashes and 2 bottom lashes. I’m reviewing #2
Jewerich set of three lashes and eyelash glue is their current line-up (more info on a change below) I’m reviewing #1
NYX Nicorun Produce
Important note: Jewerich has 2 lashes for the price of 4 lashes for Princess Tiara
Look at how shiny the plastic of the packaging is, and how MATTE both sets of lashes are. Shiny = fake, so both have passed the instant fake test.
I was really impressed just how matte both of these are. Along with MAC lashes (which are real hair) they’re probably the most matte lashes on the market.
You can tell that the Jewerich is longer width-wise. However it doesn’t curl much, the NYX pair is much curlier.
Both are about the same length coming out from the eye.

warning: omg pores! To give you the most macro exact picture is so make you get up in my pores. :worry:
Actually it’s my goal not to photoshop me on this blog other than levels. :worries:
Jewerich top with decorative bottom lashes.
The lash band was very stiff and the lashes too long. Longer than Dollywink I think.
Shown only on top. You can see the length and width of the lashes easily without all that bottom lash fuss.
Nicorun produced NYX
The NYX lashes feel much thicker and longer than the Jewerich kind. Very drag.
With my eyes closed you can really see how thick and heavy they are.
Using the “extend” other version of the lashes with a small bit of purple from Lip Service’s old lashes. It’s very natural gal (except for the purple) hehee.
I really love the NYX lashes. They stayed on well, applied easily, and really made a bold gal statement without having to pile on the eyeliner. Would I buy them again? Yes, although maybe a different style from the NYX produced Nicorun line. I really liked how matte they were and how well they attached to my eye.
Even though the volume lash pair was not so statement worthy, you did get 4 pairs of lashes for 1260 yen. Popular discount brand Diamond Lashes, which are shiny and cheap at 5 pairs for 1260 yen. Compared with NYX the price is pretty comparable.
Jewerich were just too difficult and too long. I love long eyelashes so I can extend them out of my eye, but these were excessively long. At times I also “felt” these on my eyes. For those of you who daily wear eyelashes, you understand after a while you do not notice them. I noticed these :worry:
I said that, then I saw the coming soon eyelashes. The ones on the far right, soooo cool!
