CL review: New Diamond-Blue (sponsored)

It's time for another Circle Lens review. I love trying all kinds off different lenses so I was really happy when a new package from KLenspop arrived! The lenses they send me were New Diamond-Blue , you can find them here for only $13.  So this is the package they arrived in (cute as always^^):



In the package were of course the lenses, but also a lense case and a tool with which you can put them in. However I rather use this tool when decorating nails -.^ 



Do you remember my last review on lenses from Klenspop? (You can find it here) I was not super enthousiastic about them, so this time I asked for lenses with a darker rim and a design more suited for on light eyes and I was super happy when receiving these! They were exactly what I asked for ^^:




Some information about the lenses:

Graphic diameter: 13.5 mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6 mm
Type: 1 Year disposal

These lenses were still somewhat smaller than I am used to, but I really love the design! Here they are on my light eyes in different light conditions:

With one lense in

In natural light

In electrical light
 

 In the shade

Here's what I thought of them:

Color: 4/5
The color is really nice. It is a kind of cool blue, almost the same as my own eyes. I prefer it when colors pop more though, but that's me being a perfectionist-.^

Design: 5/5
I LOVE this design! It is really cool and the heavy outer ring is just perfect <3 They really suit my eyes and I think these might just be my new favorites!

Enlargement: 4/5
These really give that big eye effect, even though they are smaller than what I'm used to!

Comfort: 5/5
Even no irritation while standing in the smokers' room.

Pro's:

  • Big enlargement
  • Beautiful design
  • Really well suited for light eyes
  • They give kind of a soulful look, because of the big outer ring
  • Very comfortable
  • Cheap for such quality
Con's:

  • The color does not really pop
I really can't think of anymore cons xD



I hope you liked my review. I am curious to here if you are still missing something here, so tell me in the comments -.^ Check out KLenspop's selection if you liked these lenses, they have a huge selection!

Much Love!

Introducing: ReGAL

Remember how I mentioned something about a new gyarusa in my post about the Dutch Jfashion conference OshareCon? If not you can read it here. Well now I can finally say more! In the Netherlands there are not many gyarusa, there was actually only one that has also become quite inactive lately but is starting back up again. That is called Hyper and is known for the international summer meets they organise here. So we decided it was time for a new, more active circle! 



Yesterday we launched our FB page and made it official \(^o^)/ So who is in it? Well we made some pictures at OshareCon:




We were not complete yet, so we are going to have to make new pics with the whole group.. Which will of course be posted here -.^ 

Much Love!

Ganglion concert

Happy Easter everyone!

Yes you read the title right, Ganglion finally came to the Netherlands!! \(^o^)/ One of my biggest Rokku model inspirations is Oni, who is coincidentally the singer of one of my favorite Japanese bands Ganglion <3 So I felt like the luckiest gal ever!

Getting ready was of course super chaotic as I had a looong day at uni before and only had an hour before I had to catch the train in which I still had to eat dinner, do make and hair and get changed O.O But I managed in the end:


And my make:


(wow, am I looking happy here xD I suppose it must have been the time pressure)

So after putting on a pair of as s kicking platforms, so I could better see the band -.^, it was off to Haarlem for the concert ! It was soooo great! There were not too many people, but we had a really good time and the atmosphere was great, everybody was so excited to see them finally in real live \(^o^)/ I tried to make some pics during the concert while jumping up and down and screaming my lungs out ( so excuse the not too great quality).





I even touched all the band members and Oni's hair !!! I almost died right then and there x'D Also I made a movie, with not the best sound quality, but I just had to take something home of the concert :

video

It was so amazing I did not want it to end! Buuut it did and I am already looking forward to the next concert when they get back here ^^

Much Love!

OshareCon nails

Remember my post about the first Dutch Jfashion conference OshareCon? (If not you can find it here) At the conference I participated in a workshop for making Deconails. I really liked it! Unfortunately the workshop was only an hour including making an idea, polishing the nails, choosing deco and everything so almost nobody got to finish them in time T^T This morning I finally had the chance to complete mine and I am kind of happy with the result:


This was only the second time I made nails myself, so I still had some difficulty with the small deco xD I started with these polished nails I had after the workshop and some deco I took home with me:



The nails had gotten a little damaged as the polish was not completely dry yet when we had to take them home, but I had the same colours at home so I could fix them :3 As planning is not my strongest suit I just started and it actually went quite fast! Except for when I had to make the last nail, that was so hard ^^


So now the end result... (imagine drums here -.^ )




So how do you like them? As I said it's only the second pair I made and they are not perfect yet, but it was a lot of fun to make them \(^o^)/  Next time I'll try with more of a plan and more elaborate designs, I already have a lot of ideas!

Much Love!

CL review: Bunny Color Brown (sponsored)

After having tried purple, red, green and blue lenses. I thought it was time for some brown ones! I did not know what to expect when I got my package from K Lenspop, but I think the result qas quite interesting. The lenses they send me were Bunny Color Brown, you can find them here momentarily for only $13 (normally they're $25). So here is how the package arrived:



I really liked the packaging! As an Industrial Design student I could not help but notice how cute and well designed it was. On the back of the box there was even an instruction of how to put in lenses:


Isn'r it just too sweet? I really like the princess drawings ^^

In the package were of curse the lenses, but also a lense case (which I totally did not expect) and I think a tool with which you can put them in? I'm not sure but that's what I think it is -.^ I was too afraid to try it though.. Clumsy as I am, I would probably poke my eye out xD



Again isn't this bottle the cutest? The bunny is just sooo adorable <3 But on to the lenses themselves:




As you can see the design looks quite pixelated. Sometimes that does not really show when they are in your eyes, but unfortunately in this case it did.

Some information about the lenses:

Diameter: 14 mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6 mm
Type: 1 Year disposal

These lenses are somewhat smaller than I am used to, as I normally wear only 14,2 mm diameter and up. It was funny for me to see the big difference! Here they are on my light eyes in natural light without flash:


And with flash:



It was super hard to keep my eyes open with the flash, so excuse the sleepy look xD Here's what I thought of them:

Color: 5/5
I think this is a really nice warm color brown <3

Design: 2/5
I really like the general design of these lenses, but for me lenses without a darker outer ring just don't work that well.. Also the bad print quality is just a big downside. Also the 'hole' in the lens was never really in the middle of my eye, which was a but strange to see.

Enlargement: 1/5
These lenses are just much smaller than I am used to, plus the brown made my eyes look smaller.

Comfort: 5/5
I wore them going clubbing and even with smoke they never bothered me even a little! 

Pro's:

+ Great for neutral looks
+ Beautiful color
+ Super comfortable

Con's:

- So pixelated
- No dark outer ring
- Small

They are not my favorite pare of lenses, but I think on darer eyes they would be quite nice! Especially because in the pixels will probably be less noticable. Apart from that, I think these are really nice for more neutral looks ^^

I hope you liked my review. Check out KLenspop's selection if you liked these lenses, their selection is amazing!

Much Love!
