Geo: Princess Mimi Almond Brown Lenses

The website www.geocolouredlenses.com sponsored the Geo Princess Mimi Almond Brown lenses for me to review. These are brown lenses that last up to a year with proper care. The diameter is 14.5 mm, the base curve is 8.7, and the water content is 40±2%. These lenses come in prescriptions 0.00 ∼ -8.00.

Here is the package I received:

The contents of the package were neatly in one place, sealed in a plastic bag.

The Geo lenses came in individual vials, with the prescriptions on top of the caps. The lenses also came with a complimentary lens case, marked with “L” and “R” for “Left” and “Right.” There was also a business card sized flyer with information about Geo Coloured Lenses’ social media, and a sheet with instructions for soft contact lens care.

Below, you can see a set of three photos. The top one shows one eye with no lens or makeup, but the other eye has lenses and makeup. As you can see, The lenses and makeup make my eyes look a lot bigger! In the middle photo, both of my eyes have makeup on, but only one eye is wearing a circle lens. You can see the difference that the circle lens makes! The bottom photo is the complete look.

Circle lenses are a great cosmetic accessory that can add a lot to your look! And since many of them come in prescriptions, you can use them instead of wearing glasses. Just be sure to take proper care of your lenses and remember to avoid keeping them in your eyes for too long. And never sleep in your lenses!

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Packaging: ☆☆☆☆☆ The packaging was great; I have no complaints.

Style: ☆☆☆☆☆ I love the design of these lenses: there is a black limbal ring that surrounds sheer light brown color! The lenses give dramatic enlargement but are in a natural color, so these lenses would work for a variety of makeup looks.

Color: ☆☆☆☆ I do wish the color was more opaque so the light brown shows better on my dark eyes, but the color still looks lighter than my natural eye color.

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ These are very comfortable! I have only worn them once, but I definitely want to wear them more often. I could hardly feel them in my eyes when I wore them, and I kept them in for several hours.

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

The Face Shop: Ink Graffi Brush Pen Liner Review

My friend Terry bought this eyeliner from The Face Shop for me, so I thought I would write a review for it!

DSCN3891

I’ve always had terrible luck finding eyeliners because of my really weird eyelids… They look like monolids, but I do have a crease (but it’s invisible). I’m not sure what the technical term is, but it may be “hooded eyelids.” In any case, my eyes looks like monolids, but whenever I apply eyeliner, I need to make it really thick so it will be visible. If I draw a regular line, once I open my eyes, the line disappears! It’s so frustrating. I know how to make the eyeliner show up: I make a super thick line. But then this causes another issue: when I close my eyes, there’s an awkwardly massive line. It’s really annoying but there’s nothing I can do about it.

Since I have this oddly hidden crease, I’ve always had trouble with pencil eyeliners and liquid eyeliners. For some reason, they always get really smudgy (probably from blinking), and the only eyeliner that I’ve ever had luck with is a cream eyeliner that comes in a jar. The cream eyeliner is really heavy though, so I only use it for photoshoots, dance performances, and cosplay. If I’m putting eyeliner on randomly (just for fun, or for work), then I don’t want to use the cream liner.

During the past semester, I’ve been using this eyeliner for “daily wear.” I don’t wear makeup every day, but sometimes I will wear eyeliner to class if I’m not too tired in the morning.

DSCN3893

Pros: dries quickly, great staying power

Cons: not always precise

The Ink Graffi liner is a brush pen liner and it does feel like a pen when I hold it. Drawing the line is pretty easy, but as I explained above, I have to make the line really thick for it to show up. Sometimes, I’ll just do one line and let it be since it’ll show up when I blink or close my eyes. If I want to make a thick line, I have to draw the line a few times, adding more to the top part of the line each time. This liner is easy to use, but sometimes the ink doesn’t run smoothly and I have to go over spots that don’t have ink. The ink dries quickly, which is a plus! After using this eyeliner for the previous months, I have never had any bad side effects or reactions. I have extremely sensitive skin, so I’m glad I didn’t get any irritation from this eyeliner. I’ve had bad reactions from drugstore brands in the past, even reputable brands like Maybelline and Revlon.

This eyeliner holds up really well! When I scattered my grandfather’s ashes last weekend, I basically cried all day. I thought I had made a dreadful mistake by wearing eyeliner in the morning… But at night time, my mom told me that my eyeliner was still black; the only issue was some of it transferred to the area under my eyes, but that transfer was probably caused by me rubbing my eyes with tissues too much. When I looked in the mirror at night, I was surprised to see that the liner was still on the upper lids (and it still looked black!). And the transfer on the bottom wasn’t as terrible as I imagined it would be.

Here is an example of what this eyeliner looks like on me:

tumblr_nupdbdRk911sv3vjto2_1280.jpg

The color is a nice matte black. It’s not the blackest black, but it’s definitely a true black.

Here are my ratings for the Ink Graffi eyeliner from The Face Shop:

Comfort: 5/5 (would definitely recommend for people with sensitive skin!)

Ease of use: 4/5

Color: 4/5

Staying power: 4/5

OVERALL RATING: 4/5

Princess Dreaming: Fashion Glasses

beauty

Princess Dreaming sent me a cute pair of pastel glasses to review!

DSC_0012

I did not know what kind of glasses I would receive, so it was a pleasant surprise. The package was not a normal bubble mailer: it was an adorable pastel polka dot mailer! What an adorable way to ship out a product~! Inside, there was a red envelope with Princess Dreaming Postcards. The glasses were wrapped in bubble wrap and placed inside pink bag.

DSC_0008_Fotor_Collage

The glasses do not have lenses, so they are perfect to wear as a fun accessory for photos! No lenses = no glare in photos. These glasses have a pink frame, faux pearl detailing, and mini mint green decoden bows.

DSC_0017_Fotor_Collage

These glasses would be so cute with any pastel outfit~! Fairy kei, pop kei, or sweet lolita would be great fits for this accessory. The decorations on these glasses are very sturdy; they don’t look like they will fall off easily. I wouldn’t recommend throwing them out the window, but I believe they can withstand daily wear.

48danube31mellow

Since these glasses have thin frames with wide openings, they are great for showing off your eye makeup! For this look, I am wearing circle lenses, heavy eyeliner, and both top and bottom false lashes, so my eyes look much bigger. These glasses frame my eyes nicely, with enough space for my over-the-top Dolluxe lashes.

I also love the color combo of pink and mint… It is too cute~! It reminds me of macarons…

Princess Dreaming is on hiatus right now, but they will open up again in April 2015! Be sure to check them out because many new designs after their hiatus.

Once the reviews for the other items are up, I’ll add the links to this post! I hope you enjoyed reading my review. I have a plethora of reviews coming soon, so keep checking back. ^_^

Angel Contacts

Angel Contacts sent me an adorable package to review! The package included three pairs of false eyelashes and one contact lens case. The package itself was a standard mailer, and there were no rips or tears in the packaging. The items were safely nestled inside its package. The three pairs of false eyelashes included were different styles. The deco contact lens case is too cute!! Red is my favorite color, and I also have a sweet tooth, so I absolutely love the red dessert-shaped case. There are even little berry and mint leaf details! If you are interested in this product, it is called the Strawberry Mint Lens Case ($5.00). 

DSC_2177

Now, let’s talk about the lashes! Angel Contacts sent me Dolly TiaraAngel Luxe, and Sweet Glam lashes. All three pairs were in the same packaging, and can be stored in their respective trays and re-used. The lashes themselves are surprisingly light for such thick and lengthy lashes! They are easy to apply since the lash bands are so flexible, and they do not irritate my eyes. When I blink, they don’t shift at all. Once glued, they feel very secure. They are also not painful to remove if you use eye makeup remover! 

DSC_2178The style of all the lashes are absolutely gorgeous! I love how each style is flattering to my eyes. Read on for specific reviews for each pair of false lashes…

beautyplus

Dolly Tiara is perfect for a dolly look; you will truly look like a beautiful doll with these lashes! I love how they make my eyes look so big. You can wear them alone, or pair them with underlashes. I used underlashes in these photos because I wanted to go all-out with the dramatic makeup for the pastel photos. The underlashes are not from Angel Contacts, and when I compare the underlashes to the Dolly Tiara lashes, the Dolly Tiara lashes are definitely higher quality! The underlashes are stiffer and harder to apply than the lashes from Angel Contacts.

dollytiara3_Fotor_Collage

In addition, as you can see in many of my photos, the underlashes shift and look odd in some pictures. The Dolly Tiara lashes, on the other hand, look fantastic! These lashes are fantastic for over-the-top sweet lolita or for gyaru. The Dolly Tiara lashes, with their exaggerated points, would also be great for cosplay!

Ratings for Dolly Tiara:

Style: ☆☆☆☆☆ I am in love with the design of these lashes! They truly stand out. 

Length: ☆☆☆☆

Volume: ☆☆☆☆☆

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ All of these lashes are so comfortable! I can’t decide which one is the comfiest. 

maybe

Sweet Glam has a very thick false lash design that makes it great for adding volume to your lashes. They are very thick without looking chunky since each segment of lashes taper to a point. All of these points make the lashes look full and thick, whether your eyes are open or closed. These are dramatic lashes that will really open up your eyes!

sweetglamclosed_Fotor_Collage

You can use Sweet Glam for a special occasion, for cosplay, or for fashion; they are versatile lashes. These lashes were the perfect width for my eyelids as well! If you want to decrease the width of the lash band, it would be easy to cut the ends and trim the lashes to fit your eyes. 

Ratings for Sweet Glam:

Style: ☆☆☆☆

Length: ☆☆☆☆☆

Volume: ☆☆☆☆☆ These lashes have the best volume, out of all the lashes I have ever tried. I love how thick these lashes are!

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ All of these lashes are so comfortable! I can’t decide which one is the comfiest. 

 meiko

Angel Luxe is lush and pretty, but less over-the-top than Dolly Tiara (because it does not have the exaggerated points in its design) and Sweet Glam (because it doesn’t have the extreme thickness). Angel Luxe is great for enhancing your natural beauty! 

 angelluxe3_Fotor_Collage

Angel Luxe would be great for accentuating your eyes in a pretty and subtle way for cosplay, or for fashion if you want to have longer and thicker eyelashes without looking unnatural.

Ratings for Angel Luxe:

Style: ☆☆☆☆

Length: ☆☆☆☆ Great length! From a distance, you won’t look like you are wearing falsies. You’ll look like you have naturally long and beautiful lashes!

Volume: ☆☆☆☆

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ All of these lashes are so comfortable! I can’t decide which one is the comfiest.
