[TinyUnicorn] Split Wig Review

 

Today, I get to share my first review of a TinyUnicorn product! TinyUnicorn is a store on Amazon.com that sells wigs and miscellaneous items. I’ve seen clothing and home goods pop up in their Amazon shop too!

This particular item is a split wig the owner of the TinyUnicorn shop sent me. The colors are a silvery gray and a dusty muted purple.

The wig arrived packaged as expected. The bubble mailer it came in was big enough so I could cut the top to open the package without cutting into the plastic bag that held the wig. The wig also came with a free wig cap!

The split colors are beautiful! One half of the wig is a silvery gray color, and the other half is a dusty reddish-purple. It reminds me of taro in some lighting, but it has more red tones than a true taro purple color.

Below, you can see the hooks and the style of the netting on the inside of the wig.

 

The size of the cap fits me well, but I wouldn’t recommend this wig if you have a larger head circumference than me. I remember when I had long hair, I had trouble fitting all my hair under a wig with a wig cap size like this one. I used the hooks on the outermost notches when I wore this wig.

Now let’s talk about the texture of this wig. When I first took it out from the package, I was surprised by how smooth and silky the wig fibers felt. I’m glad it is so smooth, and yet, does not look too shiny in photos (definitely a plus). I wore it all day, and the wig didn’t show signs of tangles afterwards! There was a bit of frizz, but I was able to smooth it out with a wig comb and my fingers. I also like that the wig has long bangs, that way you can wear it like I did (brushed to the side), or you can trim the bangs to your liking. I might trim the bangs later; for this review, I didn’t do any styling other than using a bobby pin to pin the bangs to the side so they wouldn’t go all over my face.

 

You can find this 28″ split wig here. Do you ever wear split wigs, or have you ever dyed your hair in a split style? I’d love to hear about your experiences with split wigs and hair styles too!

The last time I reviewed a split wig was this cute Miss Tea Wig from PennyDreads, back in 2015. Wow, time really flies…

Before closing out this post, I’d also like to shoutout my friend Tara, who let me wear the cute beanies and macaron hair pin for these photos. She also took the photos of me wearing the wig, using my iPhone. Tara has so many cute things! ❤

[JOLSE] Rivecowe Bubble Mask Pack Review

DSCN4796.jpg

Jolse sent me three of the Rivecowe Bubble Mask Packs! On the Jolse website, this mask is described as “A bubble carbonic mask pack that eliminates body wastes and tends the skin moist.” What I think they mean is this: this mask pack cleans your skin and pores and will not strip your skin of moisture. Jolse also states this: “The oxygen bubbles should cleanse the make-ups clean while tending the skin.”

On CosDNA, you can check out the ingredients in this product. The list is mostly safe, with a few ingredients that are possible irritants. I didn’t notice any negative reactions from using this product though, and my skin can be sensitive. This is my first time trying a Rivecowe product, and it’s also my first time trying a bubble mask.

Since this mask is meant to cleanse makeup as well, I used the Rivecowe Bubble Mask Pack before showering. I didn’t have much makeup on since I used it after work (I only had tinted moisturizer on), but it was worth seeing if it would clean that off. Generally, I use a face wipe first, then an oil cleanser, and then a foam cleanser.

When I first ripped open the package, I noticed bubbles already forming! This was surprising. It was difficult at first for me to unfold the mask since it was stuck tightly together, but I was able to open it up without damaging the mask itself. I placed it on my face, and was relieved to see the holes fit relatively well. The bubbles formed very quickly, and grew in volume!

Using a timer, I kept the mask on for five minutes. I could hear the bubbling noises, which was a bit disorienting but also quite fun! There was also something relaxing about chilling with a bubbling mask on my face. The bubble noises seemed to get louder over time, but I wonder if that was in my imagination.

There is fragrance contained in this product, but it was mild (which I like!). I’m glad the smell wasn’t overpowering. I was comfortable keeping this mask on for five minutes, although when the bubbles got really big, they started getting into my nose (and I was paranoid about them getting into my eyes). I was all good though!

Check out my video of the mask in action here!

After I took off the mask, there were some remaining bubbles on my face.

img_1484

I simply rinsed off the bubbles, and then I noticed that my skin felt a little tight, but it did feel clean. The tightness wasn’t a bad feeling though! It didn’t feel dry.

All in all, this was a fun experience and I’d definitely use these masks again! I don’t know how effective they would be to clean off actual makeup. I’m also way too lazy to ever use this as part of my skincare routine, but it’s definitely something I’ll keep in mind to do once in a while. I would recommend this product to people who want a fun cleansing experience!

Overall Rating: ☆☆☆☆

img_1478-1

Have you ever tried this type of mask? Have you tried any other products from Rivecowe? I’d love to hear about your experiences!

[Review] The Five Wits: Stocking Wig

LiLi-Stocking-4.jpg

Does anyone else here love Panty & Stocking? This wig is the perfect Stocking Anarchy wig, but the official name of this wig is “Angelic Striped Gothling Halo” … And Stocking is basically an Angelic Striped Gothling Halo, right? xD I always love the fun names for wigs from The Five Wits!

Here is the Product Description from the official website:

“This extra-long cosplay wig is blue-purple on the outside and pink on the inside, and great for cosplaying Stocking from Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt.”

Here is the package I received:

DSC_0338.jpg

The bubble mailer had some small tears in it, but it was intact and the wig inside was not dirty or damaged.

The wig itself came wrapped in a long plastic bag. It wasn’t a ziploc-style bag like most plastic wig bags; instead, it was a long plastic bag that was twisted at the end. The ends of the wig fibers stuck out a bit at the end. I like this twisted way of securing the long wig; when I took the wig out from the bag, the fibers were smooth and untangled.

DSC_0339

I have always had terrible luck with long wigs… Especially Stocking. I’ve gone through 2 different Stocking wigs, and both have been terribly tangled, even after using every possible detangling method I could think of. I tried Motions spray, fabric softener, detangling spray, wig shampoo and conditioner, silk oil, hair straightening iron, and more… My first Stocking wig became a total disaster; after combing it through, it lost so many wig fibers. My second one isn’t that terrible, but it was such a pain (and so time-consuming…) to detangle it.

LiLi-Stocking-6.jpg

This one from the Five Wits is my third Stocking wig, and I like the colors of this one better than the previous ones I have had. The colors are darker, and I prefer this look! The fibers are really smooth but also not too shiny. I love the texture of this wig! It’s a very different texture from those of the other wigs I got from The Five Wits, but then again, this is my first time wearing a long straight wig from this brand. The other wigs I have are short and straight or long and curly.

I also wore this wig when I cosplayed Police!Stocking for the first time (technically a different shoot but with the same photographer and on the same day).LiLi-Stocking-20.jpg

My college house basement worked really well for this photoshoot! It would also be the perfect setting for a horror movie… Lots of creepiness. And spiderwebs. I totally got lots of spiderwebs on me.

LiLi-Stocking-22.jpg

Long wigs do tangle, and I don’t think there’s any way to escape this. Especially when it comes to long straight wigs. However, this wig wasn’t tangled to total despair! When I changed costumes in the middle of the day, I honestly just threw the wig unceremoniously to the side because I was rushing. And when I put it back on my head, I didn’t have time to comb it through, but it looks alright in the photos! I just smoothed it down as best as I could with my hands.

LiLi-Stocking-24.jpg

This wig was easy to detangle later by gently combing it through with my fingers and with a wide-toothed comb. I was surprised by how it looked after wearing it all day for this shoot!

LiLi-Stocking-Pt2-1

 

I’m rating this wig a 5/5. Highly recommended! I’ve purchased quite a few wigs from The Five Wits in the past, and I have never been disappointed. Most of my Homestuck cosplay wigs came from The Five Wits, actually! I still can’t believe today is the day after 4/13… (Wow, Homestuck actually ended!) My first wig from The Five Wits is a short black one that was super easy to style. I used to for so many characters, and I didn’t even need to use hairspray. The fibers were stiff, so they weren’t smooth or silky, but the stiff fibers made it super easy to style with my fingers… and they actually stayed in place!

Let me know if you have any questions regarding The Five Wits or this Stocking wig. My Stocking photos were done by Flash Cord Photography! I’ll try to make a post or two about this photoshoot in the future. I’ve been really busy with college classes and applying for jobs, so unfortunately, I haven’t been able to blog as much as I would like to. Hopefully I can blog more once graduation rolls around! Wishing you all a great week~!

Born Pretty Store: Creepy & Cute

Hi everyone! I am excited to share my second review for Born Pretty Store with you all. You may remember my first review post for their Cat Ear Headband and Chain Hair Comb. You can use the 10% off coupon code “WUT10″ if you make a purchase from Born Pretty Store! unnamed This time around, I’m going to review a new batch of items:

All the sponsored products arrived in a padded mailer. The customs declaration said “Electronic,” which is not true at all, but the package arrived safely nevertheless.

DSCN0615

Here are photos showing how each product was wrapped:

DSCN0616

DSCN0633

DSCN0619DSCN0620 DSCN0621

Three of the items were plastic-wrapped, but the Skeleton Hand Hair Barrette and the Pearl Headband were not. I do not have any complaints about these items. I was happy to receive them all! They’re a cool mix of creepy & cute items.

_DSC0818w

For my Luo Tianyi gyaru-inspired closet cosplay, I used the pearl headband. It’s a super cute touch to the outfit~!

_DSC1027

I also used this headband for the above outfit. This headband goes great with this wig from PennyDreads! This headband is a comfortable and versatile piece.

_DSC7791

For my PennyDreads review, I also wore the red skeleton hair clip from Born Pretty Store! This clip is definitely the perfect creepy-cute touch to the outfit. It goes so well with this wig, and also with my real hair.

DSCN1303

Here, you can see the cute faux pearl bracelet. It’s stretchy, so it’s really easy to put on and take off. No need for clasps! The gold-tone bow charm is a lovely addition.

DSCN1302

Isn’t it so cute? I think this bracelet would be lovely for a gyaru or lolita coordinate. I definitely hope to wear it with some coords in the future!

DSCN1298

Now, check out the rings Born Pretty Store sent me!

DSCN1295

These are awesome punky rings that will go well with a plethora of outfits. The angel wing ring is a good size – large enough to be noticeable, but not too large. It’s comfy to wear and fits well on my ring finger. The other ring is the claw ring, and I love how it looks like an actual claw holding onto my finger.

DSCN1291

And here’s a photo of the rings’ underside:

DSCN1293

They’re both adjustable, so I’m sure these rings can fit on your fingers too.

DSCN1288

So what do you think of these rings? Do you have a favorite? I can’t pick a favorite to be honest… I love both of these rings equally! They’re both silver-tone, so I can wear them together and they match! They also fit together due to a bird theme… Wings/feathers, plus talons!

_DSC7725

All of these items are under $3, by the way! Yes, I said under $3. They’re so cheap, so feel free to splurge on a bunch of accessories from Born Pretty Store~!

You should check out Born Pretty Store‘s Jewelry & Accessories department. If anything interests you, feel free to use the coupon code “WUT10″ to get 10% off. There’s also a 50% off stationery sale until August 20. Happy Shopping~!

UNIQSO: I.Fairy Cara Green

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.

_DSC0913w

Photo by Studio du petit oiseau

Here is what arrived in my mail:

DSCN1122

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!

DSCN1124

Be sure to check out UNIQSO on Instagram!

collage

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:

DSCN1129

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.

collage

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.

_DSC0818w

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!

Hard Candy House: First Batch (2)

DSCN2081

Here’s Part 2 of my review for Hard Candy House! If you want to read Part 1 (about the Good Girl collection), check it out here. Now, let’s look at items from the Cherry Tart collection.

DSCN0598

This is the adorable bracelet that they sent me! I love the chunky chain style of the bracelet, and the large charms are too cute. The fuzzy heart is my favorite charm! Everything on this bracelet goes together so nicely.

DSCN0599

The clasp is really easy to use, and I was pleased with the fit. It was not too big for my wrists, which is an issue I’ve encountered before with bracelets. The construction is sturdy and there was no fraying on the ribbon.

DSCN0607

The choker necklace is equally adorable! I love the bit of lace trim along the edges. The dangling cherry charm is the perfect touch!

DSCN0608

The clasp is adjustable, so this choker will fit a variety of sizes. It’s comfortable to wear since the fabric is soft.

DSCN0609

Below, you will see adorable cherry earrings that match the other accessories I got from the Cherry Tart collection. Unfortunately, I have sensitive ears, so I can’t wear these earrings. However, I’m happy that Hard Candy House chose to use fish hook style earrings for this design since I find fish hook earrings to be the most comfortable to wear! If you like these earrings and don’t have sensitive ears, you should definitely try them.

DSCN0611

When I first received the package from Hard Candy House, I filmed a video featuring some of their items:

In conclusion, I love both the items from the Cherry Tart collection and the items from the Good Girl collection that Hard Candy House sent me. If I had to choose a collection I prefer, I would choose the Cherry Tart collection (because red x black is my favorite color combo!). Which collection do you prefer?
DSCN2107

If you want to buy something from Hard Candy House, be sure to use the 15% off coupon code “XIAO150603” ~! They also take commissions, so don’t hesitate to contact them if you want a custom-made item.

PennyDreads: Strawberry Jam

_DSC7552

Photo by Studio du Petit Oiseau

My wig sponsor Penny Dreads sent me this adorable Strawberry Jam wig. You can see my first review for them, for their Miss Tea wig in Black/Gold, in this blog post. If you want to buy something from Penny Dreads, use the coupon code “XIAORAWR” for 10% off!

Here is the package that arrived in my mailbox:

FotorCreated

Upon opening the package, I found an envelope with a glittery pink heart sticker and, of course, the wig nestled neatly in a plastic bag. Inside the envelope was a cute Thank You card! This card was a sweet touch… Thanks so much, Penny Dreads! There’s no need to thank me; I should be thanking youwig

The wig came with a hairnet, which is great! I love hairnets because they keep the wig fibers from getting tangled during transit (and during storage!). The color of the wig is a dark blonde dip-dyed in raspberry-red! I like how the dip-dye is not too stark. It looks natural, as the blonde hue fades into the red. There are even little dip-dyed bits on the bangs!

DSCN1115

The inside of the wig has the Penny Wigs tag and adjustable elastics. As you can see in the above photo, there are many wefts; it’s a nice thick wig!

_DSC7794

My favorite shot!

I had a photoshoot featuring this wig with the photographer Studio du petit oiseau. I absolutely love the resulting photos and I hope you love them too! You can see more photos from the photoshoot in this Facebook album. All the photos from here until the end of this post are credited to Studio du petit oiseau.

_DSC7609

The wig is really comfortable to wear! It doesn’t feel tight or loose, and since the wig circumference is adjustable, I’m sure it’ll fit you too (use the hooks on the inside of the wig). The wig fibers are soft and smooth, and the waves are gorgeous. I did not have to cut or style this wig at all; I wore it straight out of the bag. The bangs are great for a sweeping bang style! If you want straight bangs, they would be easy to trim to your liking. Since the wig is thick, you can’t see my real hair color or wig cap from the back of the wig (which is an issue with some wig brands!).

_DSC7703

I really love the transition of colors in this Strawberry Jam wig! The raspberry red is also deliciously vibrant. Penny Dreads has other colorful wigs, so definitely check them out for a variety of gorgeous wigs. They also sell hair extensions, half wigs, and dreads. Check out their Clearance section for awesome deals! You can also use the coupon code “XIAORAWR” for 10% off your purchase. What’s your favorite wig from Penny Dreads?

Hard Candy House: First Batch (1)

Hard Candy House sponsored me for the first time! I love their products, so I was flattered when they decided to sponsor me. They make so many super cute accessories that fit a variety of styles. Check out their Etsy store too!

Even the packaging was cute: Check out the cute heart tape! I was really excited to see this package!

DSCN0589

Everything was safely packaged; there were no damages to the items. I was very pleased with the care Hard Candy House took in their packaging.

hardcandyhousecollage

When I opened up the mailer, I found a package wrapped in polka-dot tissue paper! Upon opening this inner package, I found more packaging. Each item was wrapped in its own tissue paper and plastic bag.

DSCN0592

As you can see above, Hard Candy House provided a coupon code: you can use “XIAO150603” to get 15% off! This is an amazing deal!! (NOTE: in the above image, the coupon code is incorrect. To get 15% off, you must use the code “XIAO150603″ — Let me know if you have any issues.)

Now, let’s go through each item in the batch! I noticed that the items seemed to be in one of two categories: an exclusive set of pink items from the Good Girl collection, and a set of cherry-themed items from the Cherry Tart collection. All items from these collections are one-of-a-kind! First, let’s take a look at the Good Girl collection!

Below, you’ll see two photos of a necklace taken in natural lighting.

DSCN0593 DSCN0594

When I first unwrapped this necklace, I thought it was a hairbow! The jumbo bow pendant is super cute. I love the details such as the heart charm and the string of faux pearls. The print on the bow is cute and versatile as well! I think this bow could work for sweet lolita, classic lolita, and even hime gyaru fashion! This necklace would be a great statement piece with a simple outfit as well.

Here is a photo of the necklace taken in indoor lighting:

DSCN0595

The construction is sturdy, so don’t be afraid to wear this outside!

DSCN0600

The next item in this pink collection is a flower accessory that can double as a hairclip and a brooch!

FotorCreated

I love how some of the petals use the same fabric as the bow on the necklace. This little detail really brings the set together. The string of pearls and the color scheme also add consistency; if you wear this hair accessory with the necklace, it truly is a perfect match. If you wear them separately, they would still be super cute!

DSCN0603

I’m glad that the backing has a French clip as an option! This is one of my favorite types of clip because it’s sturdy and works well with thick hair. You can use clip this flower into your hair or your wig, or you can pin it to your top, skirt, dress, purse… you name it!

DSCN0604

The next accessory is absolutely adorable: a bow with generously dangling charms that you can clip onto your backpack or purse! Now, you can bling out your bag to match your outfit and other pink accessories. This bow looks almost the same as the one on the necklace, and it uses the same fabric. The charms include faux crystals, faux pearls, a flower bead, and a cute fuzzy teddy bear (and more!)!

DSCN0605

Despite the huge amount of charms, it doesn’t feel too heavy. I don’t think the charms will rip the bow. The clip on the top is easy to use!

DSCN0606

Hard Candy House also sent me the following pair of earrings from the Good Girl collection. They’re super cute and I love how the tiny bows use the same fabric as all the other accessories in the collection. The construction is sturdy and the design is lovely!

DSCN0613

Unfortunately, I have extremely sensitive ears, so I cannot wear these earrings. (I can only wear sterling silver or gold earrings.) But if you don’t have sensitive ears, be sure to check out Hard Candy House‘s earrings! They have so many pretty designs. DSCN0614

I was lucky enough to schedule a photoshoot with Studio du Petit Oiseau to feature the items from the Good Girl collection! Here are some of my favorite photos from the shoot:

_DSC0944w

_DSC0940w

_DSC0968w

And here’s a great shot of my full outfit that the photographer captured:

_DSC0975w

What do you think? I love how the Good Girl hair accessory and necklace bring out the pastel colors in my t-shirt. Check out more photos from the photoshoot in this album on my Facebook page.

_DSC0960w

Hard Candy House also sent me some items from the Cherry Tart collection, but I will review those in a separate post. You can see the flower accessory from the Good Girl collection and two items from the Cherry Tart collection in this gifset I posted on my Tumblr. You can also check out this album for clear photos of the products themselves.

Here are some great items you can check out from the Cherry Tart collection in the meantime:

Look forward to Part 2 of my review for Hard Candy House! Let me know what you think of the accessories you’ve seen so far.

If you want to see how these lenses are packaged, please check out my Bunny Color Brown reviewKLensPop sponsored me both sets of circle lenses at the same time, so they were shipped in the same box.

Above, you can see the front and back of the box that these lenses and the lens accessories came in.

All lenses from KLensPop come with a lens case and a tweezer. I don’t use the tweezer because I prefer to use my fingers, but if you like using tweezers to handle your lenses, the option is available to you! These lenses are beautiful and I can’t decide if I like these lenses or the Bunny Color Brown lenses better… They’re both such great brown circle lenses! In comparison to the Bunny Color Brown ones, the Magic Eye Heva circle lenses are generally darker in color.

And now, for my circle lens ratings!

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆ This circle lenses are absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait to wear them again (probably this weekend ^_^)!

Style: ☆☆☆☆☆ The design is beautiful. The outer rim is a rich dark brown. It’s not a solid limbal ring since it fades nicely in the center to a yellow-toned golden brown. The clear space in the center doesn’t obstruct my vision at all, even when I roll my eyes.

Enlargement: ☆☆☆☆ The graphic diameter is 14.2 mm, so this does enlarge my eyes quite a bit. Since there is no black limbal ring, these lenses look fairly natural. If I wear them out in public, I don’t think people will stare at me.

Color: ☆☆☆☆☆ I love this rich brown color! The accents of golden-brown in the center look really nice too, and they look slightly different depending on how the light hits my eyes.

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ These are so comfortable! They’re just as comfortable as the Bunny Color Brown lenses. I couldn’t even feel them in my eyes after applying them; the only eye-related discomfort I felt was from my false lashes… which has nothing to do with the circle lenses. If you want comfy lenses, I would highly recommend the Magic Eye Heva circle lenses.

I also decided to try my hand at a video review (for the first time!). At the end of this review video, I talk about what I did for the makeup look featured in this WordPress post. Please comment with any suggestions you may have for videos in the future!

The lens were shipped to me with no problems even though it was my first time receiving a package at my new address (I am studying abroad this semester).

KLensPop has consistent shipping! I was pleased to see that everything was packaged the same way as before. My experience with them continues to be a completely positive one.

DSCN9020

Upon opening the box, I discovered two packages wrapped in a thick layer of bubble wrap. I will review each pair of lenses separately, so for this post, I am focusing on the Bunny Color Brown lenses. Be sure to check back to see the review for the second pair of lenses; they are both wonderful!

collageIsn’t the packaging adorable? I love the box! The back of the box has a Contact Lens Manual, complete with little pictures.

The contents of the box were placed into a plastic bag for added protection. The lenses came in their unopened vials, along with tweezers and a contact lens case.

KLensPop sent me the correct prescription, and they also explained that on these vials, the dates are read like Year-Month-Date. So these circle lenses were manufactured on January 12, 2015 (15.01.12). These lenses were made very recently! You won’t get any expired lenses from KLensPop.

As you can see in the above photo, the design of the lenses are comprised of different shades of brown. The design looks pixelated, but I assure you that the lenses look gorgeous when worn; the pixelation is not noticeable on your eyes.

Here are my circle lens ratings for Bunny Color Brown:

DSCN9166

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆ — I absolutely love these lenses! They’re so comfortable, and really pretty but are also natural enough for daily wear. If I wore these to my internship, I don’t think I would get stared at (as long as I skip the false lashes xD).

Style: ☆☆☆☆ — I love the different shades of brown used in these lenses! A golden brown hue is used for the central design, and it fades as it moves into the center. There is a nicely-sized dark brown limbal ring too. The design reminds me of crystals, but it does not look other-worldly.

DSCN9164

Enlargement: ☆☆☆☆ — You can see the difference in the above photo; one eye clearly looks larger than the other. The dark limbal ring adds great definition to the eyes, which makes the eyes look larger. The lenses themselves give reasonable enlargement, but not super huge enlargement. I think it’s a great size!

Color: ☆☆☆☆☆ —  These are such a pretty brown color! The color changes slightly depending on the light. I like how the limbal ring is a solid dark brown; it gives great enlargement while also looking more natural than lenses that have a black limbal ring.

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ — These lenses are so comfortable!! I could not even feel them in my eyes. It felt like my eyes were naked. It was lovely! It corrected my vision perfectly as well, and I have no complaints. If you want comfortable lenses, definitely try these. ❤

Here is a shot of my outfit:

Sorry, I don’t have any clear photos!

I felt pretty cute even though it was a casual outfit! I hope to take more outfit shots in the future, even though I didn’t bring any lolita with me abroad. (Casual outfits still count as outfits, right? :D)
