Cheap Thrills: Fringe Holders!

If you follow a lot of beauty bloggers and makeup gurus, then you're probably already familiar with the Dariya Fringe Holders: They are scraps of some sort of material not unlike Velcro, which gently hooks onto the strands of your hair and keeps it in place without leaving any marks, It allows you to keep the hair out of your face while doing your makeup or whatevs.

When I first saw the fringe holders, I thought that they were cute and clever and that I wanted to get some. However, they were only available online quite frankly the markup seems a little unreasonable. I wasn't gonna pay PHP 200-400 + for bits of nothing when there were other cute ways of keeping hair in place.

However, while browsing the accessories display at Watson's last Saturday, I found these!



I must say,  people who are selling these are pretty blatant in the way they copied this product. (They included images from the original and even the original's website URL in their package. Lulz!)


But but but! Check out the price- a whopping  PHP 40- per pack of 2's. And just like the original, they have this in pink, blue and black, I don't really like black (yes, it's a classy color and everything but that's me) so I just got these 2.


I think the main difference (based on the product pics on the packaging) is that the edges of these fringe holders aren't rounded of and the way they're cut isn't so even or straight. Doesn't really bother me.  And if it does, I can just cut them that way myself.

Hope you enjoyed the weekend!

  12. 1. Keeps the Carpet Looking Great - regular carpet cleaning does not only make the carpet looking great for a longer time. Otherwise, if you do not keep a constant cleaning schedule it will look old and faded. When you allow a professional cleaning company to do the job constantly you can ensure that you will derive pleasure from the service of the carpet for a longer time.
