I’ve been meaning to write about this product for a few weeks now but hadn’t managed to get around to it. I recently took part in a focus group for Rock Cosmetics. They were looking for people to take part on Twitter, and as I love their Nail Rock nail wraps I thought why not? I thought the test would be for nail wraps.
I was sent a package which contained Eye Rock eye tattoos along with a covering letter. I was emailed a questionnaire and was asked to complete it by the end of the week.
I wasn’t sure of the pattern as it wasn’t something I would personally choose to wear myself, but thought if I were going to a festival, the floral pattern would look brilliant.
So I scanned the instructions and started on my first eye…what a fail. The tattoos basically work like the tattoos you got with gum as kids; you press it against your skin, wet the back and it transfers. My problem was that I forgot to remove the plastic protective cover, so my first tattoo simply transferred to the plastic cover. I re-read the instructions and applied the second one correctly. The instructions do state that you can cut the tattoo to fit your eye shape, but as I have quite large eyes I didn’t bother.
|Please excuse the unkempt brows!!!|
Your skin needs to be clean and oil free before applying, therefore I didn’t have any other makeup on at the time and they therefore looked very OTT on my naked face. The tattoos initially felt very tight on my eye, and a little strange. This sensation settled after about 30 minutes. The packaging states that the tattoos can last up to 16 hours, however I rubbed my eye and the transfer started to come off. I had them on about 2 hours in total. I think in a hot club, where you may get a little sweaty, the transfers may fade and come off.
I thought they looked pretty funky, and think it is a great concept, however, I wasn’t overly keen after trying them. I think if I’d had a more simple pattern I may have preferred them.
What do you think? Have any of you tried them?
