UNIQSO sponsored the I.Fairy Cara Green circle lenses to go with my Luo Tianyi cosplay! These green lenses are perfect for the character Luo Tianyi.

Here is what arrived in my mail:

I was expectinga padded mailer, so this was no surprise! It was packaged just as my other UNIQSO lenses were packaged. Inside the mailer, I found two cute “Thank You” UNIQSO boxes, two contact lens cases, and a UNIQSO Instagram card. Inside the boxes were the lens vials!

Be sure to check out UNIQSO on Instagram!

Inside each box, the lens vials were wrapped in a layer of bubble wrap. The bubble wrap was taped to secure each vial in place. This mode of protection is great! I’ve never had an issue with vials breaking, and I’ve ordered most of my lenses from UNIQSO. They’re definitely very reliable!

Here are the lenses in their vials:

The green is a deep, rich color. The enlargement is lovely as well, and I’m sure these lenses will work for a variety of different characters.

Below, you’ll see a collage photo.

The top photo in the collage features just the lenses and no eye makeup. As you can see, they give great enlargement to the eyes! The top photo was also taken in indoor bathroom lighting.

The bottom photo in the collage features both the lenses and eye makeup. This photo was taken in the bathroom, but with the indoor lighting off and the window open (I faced the window to take the photo). These lenses have a nice green color regardless of the lighting! 🙂 It’s not a super bright green, but you c an tell there’s green and even flecks of yellow.

Final Review:

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Communication: ☆☆☆☆☆ UNIQSO always has great communication! Lee Lee is fantastic and answers all questions promptly.

Packaging: ☆☆☆☆☆ I’ve never had an issue with the packaging! I love the cute boxes and the care UNIQSO takes to wrap the lenses and make sure they arrive safely.

Style: ☆☆☆☆☆ I love the design of these lenses! The flecks of yellow add depth to the color, and the thin black limbal ring is perfect for defining the eyes. The opening in the center of the lenses is large enough for you to look through without obscuring your vision.

Color: ☆☆☆☆ The green color is so pretty, but I wish it was a brighter green on my eyes. It’s not completely opaque, so the parts that are over my irises appear darker… since my irises are such a dark brown (almost black). I don’t have a major complaint about the color though; they definitely show up as green on my eyes!

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ These are so comfy! I wore them for this photoshoot, as well as other photoshoots throughout the day. (I went through four outfits… and wore these same lenses the whole time!)

(☆ = Most negative/Not good at all, ☆☆ = Not that good, but okay ☆☆☆ = Neutral/No opinion/No answer, ☆☆☆☆ = Great, ☆☆☆☆☆ = Most positive/Fantastic!)

I would definitely recommend I.Fairy Cara Green circle lenses if you want cute green lenses to wear for cosplay, or just for fun!

CamoEyes: Aqua 3 Tone Contacts

Today, I am going to review a pair of lenses that was sponsored to me from CamoEyesCamoEyes sells non-prescription colored contact lenses, ranging from more naturally styled lenses to crazy special effects lenses. This company is located in the United Kingdom, but they ship internationally.

CamoEyes uses regular mail service via Royal Mail to ship their packages. The packaging for their products is fantastic!

DSC_2179_Fotor_CollageInside the bubble mailer, there were two boxes with the contact lens vials inside. The boxes kept the vials safe and secure! Here are the contents of the boxes:

Fotor_Collage

They sponsored the Aqua 3 Tone Contacts and the Red Mesh Contacts. Both of these lenses do not give enlargement; they are not circle lenses. These are colored contact lenses. Contact lenses from CamoEyes are not medical devices; they will not correct your vision. These lenses are great for people with 20/20 vision who don’t want to enlarge their eyes! They give vibrant color without the circle lens enlargement. These lenses are also great for people who love wearing their glasses but want to change up their eye color. I know sometimes I love wearing my own glasses!

Instructions

These instructions came inside each of the contact lens boxes. I think it’s great when companies send out instructions for the use and care of their lenses! It’s important to read contact lens instructions to make sure you understand how to take care of them. Remember, your health and safety comes first! Lenses from CamoEyes may have different lifespans, so be sure to read the box, vials, and instructions carefully. Make sure you know when your lenses expire! This goes for any contact lens, not just these ones.

In this post, I will focus on the Aqua 3 Tone Contacts.

I love the pretty aqua/teal color of these lenses! The life span of these lenses is 90 days after opening their vials. These lenses are mostly aqua, but they also have bits of black and gold to give the lenses an interesting design. Even though these are not enlarging lenses, the black limbal ring defines the eyes and gives the illusion that the eyes are bigger. I always love lenses with a solid limbal ring!

beautypluss_Fotor_Collage

I have bad eyesight… so if I am usually seen wearing my trusty old glasses. I hope my eyesight doesn’t get any worse… I don’t want to switch to a higher prescription again! In any case, I love how vibrant my eyes look even with my glasses on. My normal eye color is a very dark brown that looks black in most lighting, so this bright aqua is a welcome change!

glasses_Fotor_Collage

For this makeup look, I wanted to go for something more natural, something that would be easy to wear everyday. To be honest, I do not wear makeup that often. I’m very busy, so if I have time to wear makeup on an average school day, I only wear eyeliner. But more often than not, I don’t put anything on my face other than moisturizer. For this look for CamoEyes, I used foundation, neutral brown eyeshadow, black crayon eyeliner, black mascara, and a red lip tint. I never use mascara, but I wanted to try it out since my lashes are almost non-existent. I love the way false lashes look on me, but they can be a hassle. I hope you like this toned-down everyday makeup look!

You can use the coupon code “xiaorawr” for 10% off your purchase from CamoEyes! There is free shipping on all orders, by the way.

Feel free to ask me any questions. ❤

MapleLens: Princess Mimi Apple Green Circle Lenses

beautypluss

MapleLens sponsored me this lovely pair of contact lenses. It came in my prescription, which is great, since I am very near-sighted. With these lenses, I could see clearly!

Here is how MapleLens packaged the circle lenses:

DSC_2157_Fotor_Collage

They shipped it out in a FedEx bubble mailer. The package was not ripped or damaged from the shipping process. Inside the mailer, MapleLens packaged the lenses and free lens case inside an additional bubble wrap for added protection. The lenses were also nestled inside a white box. They took many precautions to ensure the safe delivery of their product. The lens case is super cute too!

DSC_2161_Fotor

Checking the vials for the circle lenses, I confirmed that these are authentic circle lenses. They are not bootlegs! So these are definitely safe to use. MapleLens also included instructions for their circle lenses, which not many circle lens providers do. I think all circle lens providers should ship out instructions with their lenses to remind users of safety precautions!

DSC_2164_Fotor_Collage

Remember that you should always see an eye doctor before deciding whether or not contact lenses are right for you! I used to only wear glasses until I saw an eye doctor for a contact lens fitting. Also, when you use circle lenses, you need to take good care of them to ensure safety for your eyes. Make sure you clean your lenses well and use an appropriate contact lens solution. And this is very important: make sure your hands are clean when you handle your contact lenses!

beautyplus

For this sponsored review, I wore these lenses twice. Each time, I wore the lenses for a full day so I can accurately review the comfort of the lenses. The first time I wore these circle lenses was for my lolita coordinate. You may recognize this coord from my last review for TeaCupCastle. These green circle lenses give wonderful enlargement and vibrant color without it looking too fake. The green is not a neon green but a rich deep forest green. The lenses have different colored tones, such as a bit of yellow at the inner ring, which adds lovely depth to the eyes. In my opinion, the lenses’ design is very aesthetically pleasing! I love the solid black edge with the scalloped inner edge. The clear opening in the center of the lenses is large enough so I cannot see the lenses’ colored parts at all when I look around, even if I glance to my extreme right or extreme left. My vision always remains crisp and clear!

The second time I wore these circle lenses was for a local Homestuck cosplay meetup. I cosplayed the genderbent version of Jake English, which I haven’t cosplayed in years! I am so happy to revamp this cosplay and bring it back.

Last time I cosplayed Jake, I used my real hair… but since I chopped my hair short and dyed it over the summer, I can’t use my real hair for Jake (or for Jade either) anymore. I hastily trimmed and styled a plain black wig for this cosplay, and I like how it turned out! I might use this wig for Jade Harley in the future too. I know I’ll definitely use these lovely Apple Green circle lenses for Jade as well as for Jake!

I have some lenses from PinkyParadise, and I will review them here. All of these lenses are very comfortable, give great enlargement, and are easy to care for. Also, this is not a sponsored review!

beautypluss

First, I will review the Geo Princess Mimi Chocolate Brown (Bambi series) lenses. These circle lenses are super comfy. The brown color is rich and vibrant, and the enlargement is amazing. I use these lenses for both street fashion and for cosplay. You have probably seen me wear these lenses for some lolita coordinates. Here, you can see these lenses in my Magnet Meiko (Vocaloid) costest!

beautyplus

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Style: ☆☆☆☆ Cute design! I love the black limbal ring with the scalloped inner edge. However, it sometimes looks odd unclose, especially if I am staring to the far right or left.

Enlargement: ☆☆☆☆☆ Great enlargement for the perfect dolly look! Since the color is brown, it can still pass as natural from a distance. But your eyes definitely look much bigger!

Color: ☆☆☆☆☆ Love this rich brown! There are multiple tones of brown in the design as well, which adds depth to the eyes. These lenses definitely remind me of chocolate.

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆ Very comfortable! I can wear it for 8 hours without any irritation.

Next, I am going to review the pink circle lenses that I currently use. I use these for my Hazuki Nagisa (Free!) cosplay, but I also use them for fashion coordinates. These are called the Vassen Sakura Candy Pink Brown lenses!

Photographer: SuperV

In some lighting, it looks pink, but sometimes, it looks more like a beige-brown. These lenses are super pretty and give wonderful enlargement, but they do not consistently appear pink. As you can see in the selfie below, these lenses make my eyes look huge!

beautyplus

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Style: ☆☆☆☆ The style is simple but super cute. I think it gives me that anime look~! The limbal ring is dark brown, but it looks reddish in some lighting (which I love!).

Enlargement: ☆☆☆☆☆ Wonderful enlargement! These are way bigger than my natural eyes. The brown limbal ring also helps my eyes stand out.

Color: ☆☆☆☆ The color looks pink sometimes, but more like a muted brown at other times. I think it depends on the lighting.

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ These are one of my most comfortable lenses! I have worn them for an entire day at a con (~12 hours), and they did not irritate my eyes. I sometimes forgot I was even wearing circle lenses.

I have not decided what I will dress up as for Halloween this year… But I do have some ideas. I might want to try a creepy-cute demon look, or I might cosplay (because I really love cosplaying…). Maybe I will try to cosplay as one of my OCs! I have many creepy OCs from short stories and novels that I wrote back in middle school and high school. Unfortunately, since I began college, I have not had time to do much creative writing. I have written some poems and snippets of stories, but no novels. I definitely want to try something creepy this year if I have the time and materials!

Remember that you can use the coupon code “Halloween2014PearlPeony” for 50% off. Check out PinkyParadise for an amazing selection of circle lenses, false eyelashes, makeup products, and more!
