FAKE Koji Dolly Wink eyeliner

I really love Dolly Wink products: most of the time, I get them from this great eBayer for a decent price, including shipping fees. Earlier this year, I saw another offer on eBay from a different seller for the Deep Black eyeliner and I thought: “Mhmm I need to stock up on this eyeliner” so I purchased it… to my surprise, I received a cheap, counterfeit Dolly Wink imitation!
As soon as I got the product, I messaged the seller saying that I had received a counterfeit product and that I wanted my money back since I had paid for a KOJI Dolly Wink eyeliner. The seller,alrocku2007, claimed that this was the “Hong Kong” version of this product and that it was the real deal. Clearly, this person doesn’t know what they are talking about so I reported the item to eBay and I wanted to show you pictures of what the counterfeit looks like compared to the real deal.

The fake eyeliner packaging has a lot of difference from the original one: the shade of pink on top of the box is darker. On the original box, the English text says:
“ Every girl can become a doll! For the girl who wants to be “Otona Kawaii”, it’s a present from Tsubasa".”
However, the fake box only has the first part of the text:
“Every girl can become a doll!”
and is centered instead of being aligned to the left. Also, the back of the box contains different information at the bottom. Japanese make-up imported in Hong Kong usually don’t have a redesigned packaged but instead will have a sticker with translated information regarding the use of the product and its ingredients and a product code. Oddly enough, the product “made for the Hong Kong market” contains information only in Japanese.

What really made me question the product that I received that the fact that Tsubasa’s picture and the text “ Produced by Tsubasa Masukawa” was replaced by a 24h logo and the text read: “water strong liner” instead. The design of the bow is also very flimsy and off and somewhat cut off.

That really made me realize this was an imitation was the fact that they erased the KOJI logo and replaced it with “Fairy Girl”. KOJI is a well known Japanese make-up that is still up and running and it hasn’t been bought or been replace by “ Fairy Girl”. Surely if they were to market this product in other countries and adapt the packaging, they would keep the name KOJI is on it and Tsubasa’s picture as well otherwise, what’s the point??

BUT all of these could simply be a new packaging for a product but let’s take a look at the eyeliner pen itself. The design of the pen is fairly similar but upon looking at it closely, the dots, bow and logo are blurry: it’s not my camera! Usually when product are repackaged, it’s for the better, the quality of the design isn’t reduced! The cap is also pink and dotted instead of black.

After realizing this a fake product, I would have to be crazy to bring this eyeliner anywhere near my eyes so I tested it out of my hand and on a tissue: the texture of the brush is completely different. The real Dolly Wink eyelier is a fiber brush that’s very flexible and that allows you to make very thin lines and wing your eyeliner perfectly.
The fake eyeliner has a very stiff felt brush that only produces a somewhat thin line if you place it at 90°!

So obviously, this is an imitation and I could have avoided getting this by reading the reviews this person had because despite a majority of positive reviews, negative reviews stood out.

Lesson learned!

Stick to the eBayers I know and have ONLY positive feedback! I hope this post helps someone to NOT buy a fake one by accident!

  15. I found this fake some time ago while searching this eyeliner at taobao. I found the price was too cheap, so checking out the images I could notice the big difference.

  16. That is really scary.... In a way though, I'm glad Shmuberry bought it so that this post could happen! I never buy Dolly QWink products on eBay anyway; I use either Sasa or Mitsuwa, but if the price is eight I will stray haha! I hope she got her money back... I really can't believe they would actually claim it to be authentic if they even use the original Dolly Wink stock pictures in their shop!!! Shady, shady...

    ReplyDelete
  45. wow! the things people do just to 'earn' money. taking advantage of international buyers is a big no-no! esp. when you're trying to copy products from koji. you'd be out of your mind to do so!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I buy from them normally, they're legit :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I saw this on her blog too, can't believe it!

    ReplyDelete
  48. the only Ebay seller I trust for make-up is 
    Alphabeautyuk  :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. same! I was so scared to try on my hand too: what if I get a rash? haha

    ReplyDelete
  50. You know I wasn't really surprised when I saw this post. I figured that Dolly Wink will get replicated eventually just as all things are or eventually will be. Very depressing how you cannot just simply give sellers the benefit of the doubt. :( None-the-less, very helpful post, especially to those that haven't even bought the original eyeliner yet and wouldn't be able to tell the difference.
