EOS Ice Violet circle lens review

As promised I will review the lenses I wore in my last post: the EOS Ice Violet. Ordering lenses is always a bit tricky if you have light eyes like me, so I searched a lot for reviews of these lenses before ordering them, but couldn't find any for light eyes. I hope this review will be helpful for others like me in the future ^^

Anyways, so I ordered them again at Pinky Paradise. I love this shop, they have so many different lenses! Plus a lot of other great stuff like nose make-up and such. They arrived at my home with the cutest matching elephant lens boxes <3


Here is some information about the lenses:
Diameter: 14.8 mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.8 mm
Type: 1 Year disposal

I couldn't wait to try them on! I have wanted to try purple lenses for some time now and I just loved the design of these ones. So here's a pic of me wearing them:


I think it's a shame you don't notice them that much T^T especially compared to on dark eyes:


Also they seem to have a much bigger center than in the picture of the site.. weird! So now on to the reviewing!

Color: 3/5
I love this color! It's a really pretty purple that seems really sweet and soft, while still being interesting and edgy enough for my more rock looks. It's just too bad they are not that noticable on light eyes T^T

Design: 4/5
I really like the design of the lenses, but I think I prefer lenses with a dark outer ring above these without a real noticable ring. It just looks less gal to me.

Enlargement: 5/5
These lenses will give you huge dolly eyes, even without the black outer ring.
Comfort: 5/5
I have worn these lenses for about 12 hours and haven't felt any discomfort or even dry eyes. Maybe I am a little less sensitive to these problems though, as I wear lenses everyday. Still they were really comfortable! (I even forgot to take them out, when I took of my make for meeting friends later that day:$ they liked them though)

Pro's:
+ Unique color
+ Great enlargement
+ Very Comfortable
+ Also available in grey, blue, green, brown and pink!
+ Available with prescription up to -10
+ You can even wear them without make, it looks pretty natural

Con's:
- Not very visible on light eyes

You can buy the lenses here for only $17.40

I hope this review was helpful!

Much love!

New hairstyle ~

Hi dear readers! How are you all doing today? ^^
I am really great as I finally went to the hairdresser's \(^o^)/ In the post in which I told I was finally back from my holidays, I told you to really not pay attention to my hair, as it was a hot mess... So literally the next day I had my appointment at Kinki kappers. I was really nervous, since I did not exactly know what I wanted and had only brought some inspirational pics for them to work with:










As you can see I wanted something really different, more bold and edgy and suiting for the look I want for myself! Unfortunately I had to tell them I could not die my hair in really cool colours, as I will be starting my internship next week and they don't tolerate very out of the box looks T^T So I wanted to stick with browns and blonds and make it look a bit more 'natural'...

Unfortunately they misunderstood, so when I gave them these pictures and instructions, they understood I really wanted something natural. They did give me side bangs, which I have wanted for a Long time now, but they just died my hair in two tones of brown whcih are so close together you can't even tell the difference if you know // I was really disappointed by that! But well I am just going to let my hair rest for a little now and than try again ^o^ !

Here's the result for now:


Hihi only after the foto I realised my nails kind of match the phone cover XD (And no make I know :$) I think it's still kinda cute, how do you like it? I'll be trying to style it with the length like this first and mabe later try extensions if it doesn't work.


Much Love!

Review: 8th sin creations

Just before I left for my holidays, I got a package from this sweet little store in te UK called 8th sin creations, this is their website. I got this creepy cute lucky pack, so I could make them  review ^^

 


There were so many cool things in it!All jewelry is made of plastic figures attached to chains. The owner of the shop thinks up and creates evereything by herself (or so I thought). The skeleton necklace in the picture above is my favorite item! ^^ I call him Mr. Bones XD




Don't you just love these cute ear rings? I used them for the last football match The Netherlands played, since our colour is orange -.^


So on to the reviewing part:

Service : 5/5

I got the lucky pack while talking the details over  in FB messages. They were very nice and professional. There was even room for chitchat ^^ They responded fast to questions and it felt very nice and personal! Plus on top of the great collection of items the store sells, they also have room for admissions, so you can design your own piece of jewelry togethernwith them ! I just love this!

Shipping : 5/5

The store ships free in UK and with normal posting rates to the rest of the world. They ship the same day you purchased or the next day if it's after post hours, so you get your items as fast as possible. All Items in the lucky pack were packaged seperately with a business card, which looked really cute but did use so much more packaging! However seen as the luckypack was not what they normally do, 'll overlook it ;)

Quality/cost: 5/5

All te jewelry in of pretty good quality and very low in price AND handmade. I just love that, as it makes all pieces so much more unique than the H&M stuff.

I would definitely buy some of this shop again and can't wait to make coords ! The shop sells so completely different things, anybody should find something they like.


Much Love!

New blog lay-out

I'm back ! \(^o^)/ And going to the hairdressers tomorrow, finally, so don't mind the messy hair please :P


Actually I have been back for almost a week now, but I was kinda busy.. And I wanted to first make the new blog lay-out and than start posting again.
The old lay-out really sucked in my opinion and was done really fast, so it desperately needed an update. This is still a work in progress, but up until now I am happy with the results ^^

Get ready for some new posts , because I have tons of new inspiration now!

Much Love!

Gyaru for beginners series: Glamaxon

Time for another typical beginners post, since that's actually what this blog is supposed to be all about (sorry if I get a bit of track sometimes :$). I'm not sure if you heard already or not, but Taylor from Glamaxon is making a series of posts about gyaru for beginners! It is so great, because she explains in detail what to pay attention to and how to choose f.e. lenses so us noobs will have it a lot easier ^^

The first was about choosing the right Circle Lenses, you can find it here. I thought it was great how she explains about the different designs and how they blend in with your eyes, when they are dark or light, and the different sizes of lenses.


For me it is very difficult to choose lenses, as my eyes are very light and usually CL are designed for people with dark brown eyes. But now I found that the firework kind of designs would suit me well ^o^ so much easier! 

After reading the post I decided to look for new lenses and found two great ones: EOS Ice Blue and EOS Ice Violet:

EOS Ice Blue.jpg  EOS Ice Violet.jpg

Which colour do you like best? Oh, I can't decide!

The second post was about choosing and applying fake lashes, this is here. It as all about the different designs and how to apply, very nice for us babygals ^^ 


For this she didn't really have tips of what to choose, though since it comes down to personal fvorites.. I think I like the spiked lashes the best, they work very well with rokku in my opinion:


So what do you think of the Gyaru For Beginners series? I think it's really nice someone takes the time to lay this all out for us! When starting there is just so much to look into, it can really be too much @.@ Anyhow, there are more posts coming so keep an eye out for them.

Much Love!
