What price vanity?

Want double eye lids the non-surgical way? Well, the Japanese have this rather ‘innovative’ albeit painful looking gadget that may well do the trick.

Just clip it on the upper lid flesh for 5 minutes a day and you are on your way to creating a pretty fold to frame your eyes.

Honestly, this couldn’t be more sadomasochistic! Looks like a tool from Empress Cixi’s torture chamber. Eee…ouch!
Then again, I am sure the self bashing prone average Japanese will find this pretty mild and report a low 1 on the pain threshold scale.

Retails at around $40 SGD. And the equally crazy Taiwanese are promoting this on their media networks.

Luckily I do not need this. But if I had single lids, I would choose an hour’s of suture upper blepharoplasty surgery and 2 weeks of post surgical recuperation over this scary clip.

What price vanity? What is wrong with having single lid eyes? Heard there is a similar clipper for the nose--to achieve a higher and slimmer nose. I think going for rhinoplasty is a better bet.

Yep, it's terrible to inflict such pain unto oneself.
Lucky gal, I did notice you have very pretty double eyelids. Mine's just so-so. Wish they were thicker. Haha. Uncontented me!

Double eye-lidded girls doesn't know the sadness of single eye-lidded girls. 'Being single too long is unhealthy, unwanted and unloved...' see.. this statement applies not just to relationship, but eyelids as well.. *sob*
