Anyone Tried These
Contours RX Lids By Design Eyelid Strips. Do they work. I have real bad hooded eyes. My Mom had an operation years ago where they cut off a lot of the lid skin. Don’t want to go that direction. Thanks for your input.
My lids are so bad I have to have surgery. I’m waiting until the end of October so I don’t have to stay inside all summer. I’m scared – but it has gotten so bad my vision is way to impaired as my lids cover part of my pupil. I don’t think I’ll be trying strips – I have a hard enough time just putting on liner and mascara LOL
bringing this up for ballet.
I really appreciate all the comments on this product. I haven’t received mine yet but when I do try putting them on and have any trouble…I’ll refer back to all your comments for help. Thanks to all of you for commenting. Best of health to all of you.
one person here said she places toward the inner corner, i actually do the opposite and place toward the otter corner…I do love these and for the most part they stay put all day…if you have to reposition they are not as sticky so i just take a dab of eyelash adhesive and stick under the corner.
I’m pretty sure the ‘inventor’ of these was on … Shark Tank a couple of years ago. They were ‘taping’ up women’s upper arms and thigh areas. They said that they also had tapes for several facial areas. The Sharks declined but they wanted to invest in the facial ones. Tte inventor/entrepreneur was only offering the leg and thigh one … After the demonstration, the Sharks joked and laughed. Then they laughed some more. :womanembarrassed:
No. I don’t wear any make up due to my sensitive skin and allergies:)
I had tried blusher before and when I remove it I had hives or small sores where the blush was at:)
It hurt as though my face in the one area was burnt:)
Thank you for your post:)
Peace and love foever:)
Ok, call me a wimp. This sounds painful! Ouch, ouch, ouch! No creams outthere? :catembarrassed:
So I have had these on with eye makeup since this morning. The jury is still out……
I was able to figure out the placement by playing with just one strip and repositioning it. There is enough glue so you can reposition at least once or twice and still have them stay put. The straight edge needs to be aligned with your lash line. I found the best placement was about halfway down the eyelid toward the lash line. Do not try and place the strip too high up or you will see a lot of crinkling on the upper lid. Also, it is better to place them more towards the inner eye vs. outer eye. Although the glue is quite strong you want to lift from the center of the strip with the tweezers because you want the most glue to stick on the edges.
They absolutely DO work and significantly increase the size of the eyelid. You definitely feel the strips once they are one but they are not uncomfortable. They feel a little "heavy" once on but do not push the eyelid down (if that makes sense).
The strips are not completely invisible so you will need some eye makeup or concealer. Here’s what I did….. First I used a small amount of a silicone face primer all over the eyelid and upper eye area, this did not disrupt the glue or position. Next I applied concealer lightly over the eye area (foundation would also work). I then applied my eye makeup as usual.
It has been about 10 hours and no lifting of the strips. I really patted them in place when I positioned them. Unless someone is very close (in your personal space) they are not detectable.
It took me 45 minutes to get them placed correctly and put my eye makeup on. That’s a long time even for my high maintenance self!!!
Do they do what they say? Yes. I’m just wondering how many times it will take before one knows exactly where to place them. With the exception of tomorrow I will apply them everyday for a week to give them a thorough trial.
They are finally. I just showered and am ready to try them out…wish me luck
Mine arrived today! Will try them tomorrow……
Got mine over a month ago, size 7mm. There definately is a learning curve.
I played around with them but haven’t had the confidence to wear them in public.
Here’s my input:
If you are very fair they are translucent otherwise you can see them up close.
(I have a Medium skin tone).
While you experiment with the same pair the corners tend to lift like false eyelashes.
I tried putting a powder that blends with my eyelid over them but I think I overworked it and got a muddy look.
When lifting them off of the paper don’t grab them by the corners, try lifting somewhere in the middle or the glue won’t adhere well in the corners and try to get them off with the tweezers on your 1st try.
The more you fiddle with them the less the adhesion. That also goes with putting on shadow, don’t sweep from corner to corner I guess try patting on your shadow.
Placement? I’m still working on it. I’ve watched the video over and over and over again.
I wore them around the house for 4-5 hours and kept checking on them both up close and far away to see the effect. There’s a definite lift but it’s somewhat detectable up close, that’s why I haven’t worn them in public.
I don’t have overly hooded lids, my lids are 56 years old and have some loose skin that I am hoping these strips will cover by lifting up the skin…..but then where does that loose skin go?
So far I’ve noticed that the skin get lifted higher up and creates a new fold but there’s still some puckering.
I tried putting them on lids and over the crinkled fold and then again with my lids smoothed out by bracing each side of the lid. Don’t know which is better.
Basically what I’m saying is I’m still trying but haven’t had the time to spend another hour figuring out the placement and don’t want to go thru my supply.
I went to the website and asked about placement advice giving them pretty much what I’ve said here. That was weeks ago and I never got a response.
All I can say is keep trying. If anyone has figured it out please let us know!
anyone get theirs yet?
I have two friends that use these and swear by them. Due to their recommendation, I tried them. For some reason or another I was unable to get the same results as they…so I gave up. VelveteenRabbit said " I think there will definitely be a learning curve but if they help it will be worth sticking with it…" I’m sure she’s right. I wear a hand brace on my left hand, so no matter the ‘learning curve’, they won’t work for me (disappointed!). Wearing the hand brace I’m not able to maneuver anything very well. Yet, I’m not willing to have a plastic surgeon cut anything off my eyelids! IF any of you ladies have any other ideas, PLEASE, let me know. I’d be greatly appreciated. :heart::womanhappy:
I also ordered these! This is not new technology, this type of adhesive has been used for over 15 years on photo shoots. There is tape for neck, face and eyes. It is latex free so those of you worried about a reaction should be fine. Makeup DOES go over this material easily and the product (strips) are undetectable. I think there will definitely be a learning curve but if they help it will be worth sticking with it (no pun intended!).
