Review: MIOMI E.T. Ray Gray Circle Lens

Hi everyone~ thanks for your thoughtful comment on my previous post (my days at hospital). I really appreciate it cuz it encourages me a lot. Having a good and kindhearted readers like you touched my heart deeply ;^; I feel like giving a big virtual hug to each and every one of you!!! Thank you~
And as promised, here's the review of MIOMI circle lens review, sponsored by Tomato online shop.

Undeniably the cutest circle lens case I've ever seen O___O, they called it the NANO RABBIT accessories. zomg, I've fallen head over heels with this baby! I got mine in white (choco), so lucky! Rabbit is my chinese zodiac so I love everything that related to rabbit

Miomi is a blister packed circle lens. Yay for blister package! I don't have to go through all the hassle of opening the crazy vials, hehehe...



Circle lens case with bunny ears on the top, what could be more cuter? ;^; Comes with free mini hook, but I don't think I'll use it as an accessories anytime soon. later perhaps~~

All of the description is written in Chinese, though, it is said the lens is made in Korea. When I checked on their official site, everything is in Chinese too. so I jumped to a consclusion that Miomi is a Chinese soft contact lens that's being manufactured in Korea? lmao. whatever it is... I'm 100% sure that the lens origin is China. (Also read that Miomi is a new version of Barbie Eye contact lenses.)


Close up pattern of MIOMI E.T. Ray Gray. When not being worn, the gray color is unnoticeable. But once worn, the grayish streak will become more visible.
MIOMI E.T. Ray Gray

MIOMI E.T. Ray Gray, photo taken under natural daylight.

Design/Pattern: 5/5 So unique! Kinda reminds me to Vassen Hana spc Platinum Brown cuz of the transparent inner edge, but this time it's different! Miomi did it VERY WELL, I LOVE how it looks from afar, and even upclose! The white conjungtiva blends in naturally with the circle lens pattern as a whole. From afar, it gives a misty and dreamy look to my eyes and I love love LOVE it already.

Color: 5/5 Gives off a very natural gray hint under a brownish tone. Afar, the gray is still visible, but only on the inner edge area of the iris. So pretty!! I've never loved a gray soft lens before, but totally love this one.

Comfort: 4/5 Very comfortable, the lens is very thin and soft. I wore them for a good 5 hours yesterday without an eyedrop and it was all okay. No dryness, iritation, or whatsoever.

Enlargement: 4/5It is said to be 14.5mm in size. But you know what, the mm sizing on a contact lens refers to the 'effect' it gives, not the actual size. The actual size of Miomi circle lens is really big, holy 16 mm. Anyhoo, the E.T. Ray is huge and perfect for those who likes a dolly eyes. And I like how it looks on me without eye make-up, hehehehaha....

Overall rating: 5/5 I can't believe I'd give off a max rating for this lens. lmao... cuz my first impression wasn't that good. But now I love it so much despite it being a bit unnatural (I'd only say natural to a lens that gives off a black/brown orb alienish effect LOL)

Kkcenterhk GillBottom Wavy Wig

Hello! Today I'll post the overdue review of synthetic wig from kkcenterhk that I received last year. As you may already now, I got addicted to wigs lately~! Well, I'll start with the photo of me without wearing the wig.

I know, I look pale and sick and many told me I look sad, forgyff ;^; But yeah, my hair is actually a very thin type, unvolumized, super straight, and boring . This is pretty much my daily hair-look. I love to have my hair clipped on the back cuz it makes me look less haggard, hahahah...

Product Name: Gill Stunning Long Full Bang Fringe Wavy Hair
Price: USD $ 25.21

The fake scalp is barely visible, you may notice that the wig is pretty thick. (Photo under natural window lighting)

Indoor, the wig will turn out shiny. The shinyness is a bit over the top. This is the one and the ony drawback of this wig because people might notice that you're wearing a wig.

Left: window lighting | Right: indoor lighting



Finally, a decent shot of the wig, somehow the wig look more natural under soft window lighting. It doesn't look as shiny ^-^

Fibers: chinese synthetic fibers, non-heat resistant. Just like my previous GillBottom wig, I'd categorize it as a medium-end fibers. Under direct sunlight, and indoor with strong lighting, the wig will look like a clump of super shiny hair, lol. NG. But under dim indoor lighting and soft window lighting, the wig turned out to be more decent and natural. I let my bestie tried the wig to a wedding party and to my surprise, the wig looks kinda natural on her.

Compared to pinkcoco wig, this wig feels more plasticy, and it does smell like a plastic-barbie-hair. But on the brighter note, the detangling process is a whole lot easier! Even without wig essence, it will brush well without the frizzy ends.

Shape & Style: It supposed to be a wavy wig, but somehow it feels more like a curl than a wave. But I think that's just because the messyness. The wig itself is very volumized and thick.

Color: Originally a dark brown color lean toward auburn with reddish undertone. Under natural lighting, the color turns out to be much more lighter.

Wearability: Not something that I'd wear daily, preferably for special event =P

So yeah, that's it for today!
I'm going to post more about wig care later x_x as promised. Will be posting circle lens review too, pretty soon ^^ I got GEO Mimi Cafe Cappuccino, GEO Princess Mimi Apple Green, and Miomi E.T ray gray on the list, so stay tuned~

Lovely Gyaru Make-up Tutorial ~ Lioele Korea

Gyaru make-up is something that I've always been eyeing for quite some time now. I like Tsubasa Masuwaka (gyaru) and 青木美沙子 Aoki Misako (actually she's a lolita model with gyaruish make-up), they inspired me alot ♥, I haven't 'really' tried the complete style on myself, by this... I'm talking about hairstyle, make-up, and fashion. Nah, I've yet to try! Cuz the style is a total contrary to my regular plain style. But, I'm still curious and learning how to pull of a decent gyaru look. I know it could be time consuming but I'm willing to learn, slowly but sure~ heheh.

So tonight (oh, it's like 12:19 here now ^^ okay, early morning), I found something on Lioele's official site, a GYARU make-up tutorial! I'm just going to share and translate it a little. I've never ever expected to see something like this on Lioele, boo me I've been always a tardy-non-up-to-date-type person ;^; And this one is a tad bit different than the usual gyaru make-up tutorial that I usually find on Japanese magazine. Idk what makes them looks slightly different, I reckon it's because the way they put falsies? However, this Korean Gyaru style is so interesting. They called it GAAROO, sounds cute to me.


So yea, here's the Korean version of Gyaru (Gaaroo) ^-^ What do you think?


1. Prepare your skin by cleansing your face first, and then apply Lioele Skin Fix make-up base, followed by 3D Skin Fix foundation (on the description, it's recommended to use shade #23 to contour the face, apply it to the edge of your face) and Lioele Dollish Moisture Pact to minimze oil secretion.

2. Fill eyebrows with Lioele Mix Eyebrow Cake, choosing the shade that is closest to your hair color, put a little bit concealer or BB cream to your brow to even it out beforehands.

3. Apply Lioele Dollish eyeshadow (a+b) from the inner corner to half of your eyelids.
4. Apply the brown color to the corner of your eyes, blend well.
5. Use the darkest color (c) to accentuate the outer corner of your eyes, apply it to your lower eye area.
6. Apply  Lioele Real color eyeshadow and  Lioele Air Chiffon eyeshadow to your lower eyeline to brighten the whole look.
 (for this part, any tipes of eyeshadow with frosty finish will do)

7. Apply Lioele All in one gel eyeliner as close as possible to your lash line.
8. Use  Lioele Waterproof eyeliner pencil on your lower eyeliner, be sure to make a distance (about 2mm from the lower lash line). This will make your eyes look bigger and dolly.
9. Merge two fake eyelashes together, then put it neatly on your eyes.
10. Put on separate lower fake eyelashes.

(For falsies, you may want to trim it first to match your eyes)

11. Use Lioele Brush Pen Eyeline to fill in the lower eyeline.
12. Apply Lioele Dollish Mascara to eyelashes.

12. For blusher, smile and apply Lioele Crystal Muse Blusher (pink tone) to the temple of your cheek, make a round shape, followed by Lioele Carry me blusher (coral tone) to your cheek bone.
13. Contour your nose naturally by applying shading on the upper side of the nose.

14. It's time for highlighter! Using a non-pearl product, highlight your face on this area: cheek (below the eyes), nose, T-zone, and forehead.
15. Apply Lioele Lip color stick to your lips.

So that's all for the Lovely Gyaru (Gaaroo) Make-up tutorial from Lioele~!♥

I can't say my translations were impeccable, I hope you won't mind ^-^

BASE MAKE UP
Lioele Skinfix Makeup Base (30ml)

LIP MAKE UP

I'm just mentioning the product that is used by the model as a reference. Of course you don't have to use every product from Lioele. You can use your favorite product instead.
Now I'll leave you with a casual picture of Tsubasa Masuwaka and Aoki Misako in gyaru style!
So yea, I hope you like the post and hope it helps! If you want me to post more about make-up tutorial & translation (I got a lot from Lioele and ulzzang pony ->her old make-up tuto) please do let me know. Thanks for reading and I'll see you soon.

Gabalmoa ~ Korean Wig Shop

You might already know that I've been addicted to wig lately! It is said that once you've tried a good one, it's hard to stop. That's obviously true, but in a good way~ I'm liking my recent selca with wig, cuz apparently (and in my honest opinion) some style just makes me look younger and decent! Especially for someone with thin hair like me. I NEED a wig


So today's post will be about GABALMOA.com
while lurking on the internet yesterday, I stumbled upon the site, and I immediately fall in love with their collection ^-^ The picture above is one of my favorite wig from gabalmoa because the style is so ulzzang. Korean wig iz the best~♥

Gabalmoa is a fashion wig online store based in Korea. They sell full wig, hair piece, human hair wig, bangs, extensions, cosplay wig, and wig accessories. Below are some of their wig collection. I took a screenshoot from their site.





Some of the style are really lolita (sweet/deco lolita), with the clip in twin ponytails.

Here I'll show you some of my favorite wig (and also my wishlist^-^) from Gabalmoa~


Upstyle bun hair piece! I really like the before after picture, the girl look younger and naturally beautiful with the high bun hairstyle :)
These are what I'd consider as an ulzzang wig, hehehe... so Koreany! I often see this kind of hairstyle on so many ulzzang selcas, and I know I've fallen in love with the style The waves look so natural with cute sideswept bangs.

I also like simple styled wig like picture above. It doesn't look like a wig, ryte? So real! And I believe the maintenance and care would be hassle-less for medium length wig with no curls/waves. Usually, I'd spend over 1 hour to care and detangling a wavy wig. That's why I've been thinking about getting myself a wig that is easier to be taken care of.

And, found some gyaru-ish wig! The color is khaki brown, looks kinda ashy, and it's beautiful! Though I'd never pull off such a look, but I adore the style!


Oh, gabalmoa also sells beauty and wig accessories like wig comb, wig stand, clips, and such things. You'll need them to style your wig before wearing it :)

Cute banner of Gabalmoa! hehe..if you're interested in getting yourself a wig from their collection, don't forget to visit their online shop~~~ gabalmoa.com 
One of the reason why I like Korean wigs (and Korean wig store) is because they provide thorough and super detailed description about the wigs. The photos tends to be more accurate too (mostly photo doesn't do much justice, especially when dealing with a wig. lol)

I'm very keen to start wearing a wig, as a fashion, and yes...fashion wise! Hyehehe...
I have no problem with my natural hair, they're fine, but too thin ;^; I know I won't look good with those thin hair, esp when I need to frequently take selcas for blogging purpose. (you know~) We all want to look good and better in photos, especially when we're going to publish it online >.<~

Not only that, to me... buying a wig is like an investment. I don't need to pay a hairdresser (which usually cost almost half a price of good quality wig!), and I don't have to style my hair with hot iron tongs before attending any special event like wedding reception and such. Time and money saver!

So readers, please bear with my new addiction, WIGS! hehehe...
I'm planning on making a future post about wigs, like... how to detangle a wig, wig care and maintenance, and also how to style and wear a wig like a model doing it! (will be posting circle lens review too~)

That's all about gabalmoa and wigs! Thank you for reading and please let me know what do you think of WIG AS FASHION, do you agree?
