UNIQSO: Luo Tianyi Wig

UNIQSO sponsored a beautiful wig and perfect circle lenses for a Luo Tianyi cosplay! In this review, I will discuss the wig. Stay tuned for my circle lens reviews as well!

First, let’s talk about the packaging!

DSCN1116

UNIQSO shipped the wig in a DHL mailer. The circle lenses came in a separate package, which I will talk about it in a separate blog post.

DSCN1117

The wig was wrapped in multiple layers of protection.

DSCN1119

Inside the plastic bag is the wig and wig extension piece (and protective hairnets). The plastic bag also had a cardboard piece inside that added protection for the wig during transit. The wig came in perfect condition! Pretty fibers, not tangled at all: this was definitely a brand-new wig.

DSCN1120

When I took out the pieces from the bag, I was pleasantly surprised to find a free wig cap! This is the kind of wig cap I like too: the stretchy net kind with the hole on the top. This wig is made up of a short base wig and one clip-on extension. The extension has a large alligator clip, and it is one piece that has both the hair infinity loop as well as the long extension strands.

The wig was very easy to style! I trimmed the base wig to fix up the bangs, but didn’t do anything to the extension. The gray wig has a silver sheen, and it’s the perfect color for Luo Tianyi!

_DSC0884w

It’s too early to tell if the wig extension tangles easily or not, but the fibers are all smooth and even if they tangle, they should be easy to detangle with a wig comb or wig brush. The base wig is short and does not tangle at all. The fibers have a silvery sheen but do not look too shiny. This wig looks fantastic in photos! The base wig is also thick; my hair does not show through the wefts.

_DSC0898w

If you want to cosplay Luo Tianyi, this wig is perfect! It’s easy to wear and saves you the trouble of trying to make the hair extensions yourself. Here is the link to the wig, if you’re interested! Be sure to use the coupon code “xiaorawr” for 10% off!

I’ll review the circle lenses next, but if you want to see the product now, here is the link. I will update this post with the link to my circle lens review once it is live. Let me know if you have any questions!

Red Sakura: Puffy Star Clip and Pink Bow

Red Sakura, a little shop with cute handmade accessories, sent me two items for review!

beautyplus

Here is the package I got from them:

DSC_0022

It’s a basic bubble mailer. There was a small tear in the packaging, but the bubble lining kept the contents safe! Nothing inside was damaged, so I have no complaints. The two accessories were also wrapped in hot pink tissue paper!

DSC_0023

An adorable note was included, and a piece of Flower Kiss candy was taped to the note. I love Flower Kiss candy! It’s a hard candy that has a nice flavor and does not taste too sweet. I haven’t had one in a long time, so it was great to see one again.

Below is a photo of the accessories taken without flash:

DSC_0025

And here they are with flash:

DSC_0026

I love the cute mini bow that’s on the pink bow, and the puffy star clip features not one, but three, of these little mini bows. The pink bow has a French clip on the back to attach it to a wig or hair, and the puffy star clip has both a pin and a French clip on the back so you can wear it as a brooch or a hair accessory.

beauty

I wore these accessories with my Rhapsody wig from Gothic Lolita Wigs and an OTT Sweet Lolita outfit. They would also be adorable with a fairy kei outfit! The pink bow would go well with a pink gyaru outfit too. The French clip backing is a smart choice because it can easily clip into thick wig fibers. The French clips are very secure, so the accessories don’t feel like they are slipping out. (Sometimes, alligator clips can be more slippery.)

I really love these two cute hair accessories! You can also see these accessories in my blog post for Princess Dreaming.

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. ^_^

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!

Sugar Pop Party Shop: Jewelry Review

Sugar Pop Party Shop gave me some jewelry to review. I chose two necklaces and a ring, but the shop also threw in two cute bracelets as freebies for me. Check them out on Etsy and Storenvy!

Now first things first: let’s talk about the package! 

DSC_2167

The package I received was a sturdy bubble mailer. There were no rips or tears, and the package was easy to open. Good choice in packaging, Sugar Pop Party Shop! 

DSC_2173Inside the package was a cute sheer drawstring bag… filled with goodies! You can see the two freebie bracelets right there on the outside, and then there’s also a pink box and a blue drawstring bag.

Here are the contents of the bag:

DSC_2175Jamie, the owner of Sugar Pop Party Shop, even included a sheet of Disney Princess stickers! There is one thing missing from this photo though: the glitter Kawaii necklace. Here is the story: Even though the necklace was packaged in the pink box, it somehow got damaged during shipping.

DSC_2157

The necklace’s pendant, the drippy “Kawaii” text, snapped in half. I emailed Jamie immediately to let her know that the necklace was damaged, and she responded quickly and said she would ship out a replacement. Jamie also assured me that she always replaces any item lost or damaged during shipping, so you can rest assured that Sugar Pop Party Shop will take care of any damaged items you receive.

Sugar Pop Party Shop Kawaii Necklace

I received the replacement necklace in a timely manner and was very pleased! It was completely intact and I have no complaints. The necklace is super cute and easy to wear.

For this sponsorship, I decided to model the jewelry in two pastel-themed coordinates. One of them is a sweet lolita outfit, and the other one is just a cute harajuku-style outfit (inspired by both gyaru and fairy kei). Both outfits include the bracelets and macaron ring as accessories. You can find all jewelry pieces in Sugar Pop Party Shop’s Etsy and Storenvy.

Fotor_Collage

Let’s start with the non-lolita outfit, featuring the Kawaii necklace! 

DSC_2192

 I love this Kawaii necklace! It’s very pink: there’s a pink chain, a hot pink bow charm, and the super sparkly “Kawaii” pendant! The pendant is very clean-cut and vibrant. The glitter does not rub off, which is great! The necklace secures at the back using a lobster clasp. It was a bit too long on me, but I was able to make the necklace shorter by clasping it on one of the chain links. It’s easy to adjust the length!

In the above photo, you can see the mint macaron ring and the two beaded bracelets from Sugar Pop Party Shop. All these pieces of pastel jewelry are well-made and too cute~! I’m very pleased with the bracelets because usually bracelets are too large for my wrists and slide off constantly. These bracelets are small enough to fit my thin wrists, and they are also stretchy, so I can easy put them on and take them off without worrying about ripping the bracelets. The macaron ring is on an adjustable band, so it should fit a variety of sizes. The detail on the macaron ring is incredible! The texture of the cream in the center looks almost like real cream, and the color choices are superb. Pink, mint, and red are such a great color combination! 

lolita coord_Fotor_Collage

Now let’s talk about sweet lolita, featuring the chocolate bar necklace! 

lolita

The chocolate bar necklace is adorable. I love the gold chain; I think gold suits this necklace best! The little heart and bow at the top of the chocolate bar pendant is a perfect addition too. The necklace works well as a statement piece, and I think it would go great with sweet lolita coordinates and otome coordinates. This can also be worked into classic lolita, and I can see it working for aomoji-kei. 

beau

I would highly recommend Sugar Pop Party Shop for anyone interested in J-Fashion or alternative fashion, or even sweets enthusiasts or people who love cute things! This shop has a wide variety of adorable products to suit different tastes. Check out what’s in stock at their Etsy and Storenvy! Even though this was a sponsored review, keep in mind that the opinions expressed in this review were thoughtful and honest. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask me!

I love Sugar Pop Party Shop!
