Review: EOS Yuna Brown & GEO Xtra Bella Green

This would be my last circle lens review in May! I'm gonna merged up the review of EOS Yuna Brown and GEO Xtra Bella Green into one post~ I received these babies from SOFTLENS SHOP for review purpose, thanks so much!!~♥
Softlens Shop is an online shopping store based in Jakarta, they sell circle lenses from various brands and the good thing is, they SHIP WORLDWIDE ^-^

 GEO WBS 203 - GEO Xtra Bella Green

 GEO Xtra Bella Green upclose


Color  & Design:  photo rat4.pngI LOVE it! Never thought I'd have a heart for a green lens before, but I do like this one. It has a pretty touch of emerald green on the center, with a thick and bold black outer edges. Unlike my first pair of green lens. This one is not as vivid. The dominant color for this pair is the black. The green, however, won't be too visible unless you look at it upclose or under direct sunlight. Sometimes, peoples mistook it as a blue! Haha. It blends well with medium to dark brown eyes, too. :D

Enlargement:  photo rat4x.png is what you would typically expect from 15mm lenses, big! :D I love (and need) big lenses, so this does the job. By this, don't get me wrong, it's not like I hate smaller lenses, it's just depends on my mood and my eye make-up :) Bigger lens makes me look younger, idk if it's only me, but that's what I think.

Comfort:  photo rat4.pngI can wear them for several hours without any problem. Sometimes I even forget I'm wearing them. No blurry vision too, I love it~♥

The second lens being EOS Yuna Brown, onto the review!


 EOS Yuna Brown - tri tone

Color & Design:  photo rat2.png The color and design reminds me a lot to NEO cosmo tri tone and GEO berry holic that I received a while back. I've been dealing with ochrey tri tone lens like this a lot and I know I'd never like it. Korean tri-tone lenses, they're so typical. I'm okay with the other color, but idk why, the brown (they said brown) but it looks more ochre to me. I loathe it mainly because the design. If you take a look on the center, there's a visible pixelated dots around the pupil hole, they're very visible and looks weird. The print is super pixelated too. This lens is definitely out of my comfort zone.

Enlargement:  photo rat1.pngbarely has any enlargement. And you know how I like my lenses, right? :) just a bit enlargement is just OK, but with its light color, I feel like my eyes look even smaller.

Comfort:  photo rat15.pngcomfort is so-so. They’re not as comfortable as I expected them to be. It hurts me when I first push it on my eyes that I need to tug it out fastly, my eyes got red and irritated soon after =( The second attempt wasn't that bad though, but still, I can constantly feel them in my eyes! When I wear these, it feels like there are pebbles stuck in my eyes, or like there's thick plastic suffocating them and worst of all is blurry vision ~__~

Review: Miomi Lace Gray Circle Lens + random

Heey~ overdue review post! Been busy with real life stuff (work, and a new project of mine is coming up! Hehe...) Anyway, will be reviewing MIOMI Lace Gray Circle Lens which I got from Tomato Online Shop.





PRICE: IDR 165.000

Color:  photo rat3x.pngThe color is just OK, a subtle gray & black gradation that still looks pretty natural afar. I would like it more if the gray were much darker~ However the color of Miomi grey lace is still in my comfort zone.

Design:  photo rat2x.pngExtraordinary unique and edgy, never seen something like this before, lol... tbh I'm not confident enough to wear this lens and go outside! Hahaha so I just tried them at home. One thing that irks me is the lacey outer edge. Upclose, they're very visible and other people will definitely notice and definitely weirded out. Anyhoo, things that I like from the design is the sharp print, they're not as pixelated. Very very sharp and detailed. Actually I LOVE everything lacey + it looks so gothic to me o: I know I love the design, but being worn? maybe not for now > . < Hope I can really pull off a look with this lens ;^;

Enlargement:  photo rat4x.pngThey're HUGE, big, and dolly! 14.5mm is so deceiving! For me they look like a 15 mm lenses!

Comfort:  photo rat4.pngLove it~ I have no problems with Miomi lenses, my first Miomi lens was so good and I like it too :) The lens is super thin, I can barely feel them on.

To real life updates~~~
After a looooong time without painting, I've been wanting to revamp all my painting tools and start a new gallery (an online gallery). Next week I'm gonna buy some new painting tools (fyi, I LOVE Derwent and Pablo! But the cheapie Marie's oil tube will do)

 gonna repro-ing this lovely vintage rose painting

Nah, now  I NEED a new name for the online gallery. I've been thinking about using flowers name, I like ROSE but that's so mainstream, no? or should I just use it? Hahahaha.... but I LIKE rose already :( ... I think I'll use it anyway. Nah, to make it sounds complete, I need another word to back up the 'rose', like maybe ROSE FRISSON, ROSE 'something-something', or 'something-something' ROSE. Anything good to go along with the word ROSE. But whaaaat~~? *gonna think, and think, and think `~`
I love anything that sounds FRENCH too ♥
I know, PAINTING is my PASSION, and MY LIFE~
So yeah,  that would be all for now. Thanks for reading and I'll see you soon darling lovelies!

Review: EOS Fuzzy Petal Violet WM225 Circle lens

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of post, been quite preoccupied with work and stuff + half of it was because of me being a slacker again, lolz~ but now I'm back, and I'll be posting up a review of circle lens for the next two post. Please don't get bored~ ^o^ I'll finish it as soon as I can.
Anyhow, today's post is a review of EOS fuzzy petal violet circle lens that I got from my beloved Australian based online shopping site, mukuCHU.

Color & Design: photo rat3.png
So yeah, my first violet lens! At first I was a bit afraid of wearing purple on my eye, but I think this one is not as bad. The color is not as vivid irl, you can't really tell its color from afar. It's a beautiful deep purple that blends nicely with my natural eye color. Okay, I'm not a big fan of purple but I won't mind wearing this one and go out! And the design, I like it bcuz there's a bold limbal ring-like on the outer edge. This is the first thing that I look from a light+vivid colored circle lens like this, cuz without it, it tends to make my iris look smaller and pale, which I don't like. Design and color are OK, though I'd prefer the purple to be less vivid irl, a pale violet, that is to say.

Comfort: photo rat4.png
Comfort is OK, just like any other EOS lenses in general. One day, I went out for 8 hours with this lens on (I know it's bad, lol) It started to feel a lil bit dry when I decide to take it off, but it was after a full whole day, so its definitely okay.

Enlargement: photo rat4.png
In term of enlargement, this lens is huge! Thanks to its boldy black outer ring! Hahayy~~~

So yeah, this is a lens that I would wear whenever I feel a little edgy :3 and want to change my look a bit. 

A little update about me being a recent make-up addict:
Been planning to make a post about several beauty products that I really REALLY like! Hehe... idk if it wil bore you out, but I think I'll just do it anyway. Be patient plizz~ cuz I need to finish two more reviews of circle lens ;^; + I need to try and observe the products just a little bit more.

Also, I think I have pacified my long time BB addiction, but of course with ANOTHER ADDICTION! Bwahaha... I DITCHED all of my BB Cream! I'm no longer a BB cream girl at heart! Actually I don't really care about all those BB, CC, and even the ridiculous DD cream anymore >.<. I ordered some of them out of curiousity, but I know I'll never be back in love with BB, sorry bb~~ Hehe

So that's it for today's, I'll leave you with an edited pic of mine wearing EOS Violet WM255 (I tried the LINE camera apps for android.)


Thanks for reading, 'til next time~ :3

p.s: I'll announce the GIVEAWAY WINNER (argan oil sponsored by WISHTREND.com) real soon! please stay tuned!

Review: The Skin Shop IRIS Color Control CC Cream

Hey girls~ I got a review for you! It's my first CC Cream experience so I think I MUST share it to you~
I've been meaning to do this review for weeks but I was too busy with my online shop. (yeah I closed my old OS account and create a new one, coz I think the old username was kinda suck, lol). Anyhow, let's get started!

I got mine from THE SKIN SHOP SINGAPORE, you can check their website HERE.

$ 44.90
60 grams

Why CC better than BB Cream?
CC cream was developed to retain all the skincare benefits of BB cream with added nourishing ingredients and the additional aim to provide more effective skin coverage. CC cream is the newest miracle beauty product available and was formulated with technology originating in industry-leader Japan and further developed in Korea.

Triple functional cosmetics
(Whitening effect+Wrinkle improvement+UV A&B Protection)

- BB Cream containing porous powder that keeps clean oil-less and silky skin with controlling sebum effectively
- BB cream containing hyaluronic acid that presents soft and smooth skin tone with enhanced moisture
- Realization of quick and easy make-up thanks to its multi-functions(Whitening + Anti-wrinkle + UV protection)
- Key ingredients : Portulacae herba extract, Ecucalyptus extract, Papaya extract, Hoeny extract, Wheat extract

Special Function:
- High Coverage
- Sebum Control

CC cream, pump dispenser~

The Skin Shop CC Cream ingredients

Swatch:
a lil bit too dark for me ;( and it will get even darker when oxidized. but I can still tolerate it.
CC cream swatch, roughly blended

Swatch, natural lighting

Swatch - oxidized (indoor lighting)
I can't really capture the true color of the swatch properly, the first swatch is the most accurate one. So pleasae refer to it :)

On my face:

dewy finish (unedited)

Like I said, this is my first CC cream experience. They like a HUGE HIT all over the blogsphere lately, you know that! High end brand like CHANEL even produced their very own CC Cream. I'm ordering more CC Cream (from Etude House to be exact) and they will be arrived at mail in two weeks~ yaaay! Can't wait!

Anyhoo, This CC cream, is one of the pioneer in Korean cometics, The Skin Shop produced this CC Cream long before CC cream makes its hit. I'm super keen to try. It's a little bit different too from todays CC Cream, there's no color changing formula, and everything looks almost the same like actual BB Cream.

The Skin Shop Iris CC cream & BB difference:
Tbh, I can't really tell the difference between TSS Iris CC Cream and any other normal BB Cream around there, the texture feels the same, the way it glides on skin is just the same too, just how your normal BB cream would do.
Also, unlike any other CC Cream, Iris CC cream claims to have a better coverage than BB Cream (while usually, other CC cream would have a sheerer coverage). Is that true? Well, I'd say it DEPENDS! Which BB Cream you'd try to compare? The best BB cream coverage from which I've ever tried would be Luview Crystal Cover BB Cream and BRTC whitening & repairing BB Cream, and these BB babies have a better coverage compared to Iris CC Cream. But however, it still has a pretty good coverage in general, though I still need a separate concealer to hide acne scar etc.

Verdict: pretty much the same with average BB Cream. Like the combination of CC+BB Cream in one.

Has medium coverage with dewy finish. Though having a dewy finish, it has a rather good oil control (I'd say its oil controling properties is REALLY good if I only haven't tried Revlon WHIPPED foundation which I recently tried, lol. Will be revieweing this soon). The shade, however, is a little bit too dark for me, a lil bit leaning towards pink, and can sometimes makes my face looks dull. I'm a BOBBI believer now, yellow undertone is like, the best (for me).

Once, I tried to apply it with a round foundation brush (my favorite is one from Estee Lauder), I didn't really like the result. Or maybe I just need to improve my face sculpting technique? haha! I like the result better when I apply it with my fingers. It doesn't really accentuate dry patches on skin, but it looks a little cakey under the sun ;^; The formula isn't really pigmented, I need to build more coverage and that when I start to build the 'cakey' look. It's my skin to be blamed (me, actually ~__~).  But yeah, I still like this CC cream~

The packaging is what I like the most, a pump type ^^ very hygienic and easy to use. The pump is user friendly too~ It has a refreshing smell, somewhat like an eucalyptus perhaps? And oh, this baby is kinda huge, 60gr, that lots of it. So don't worry about the price~

What I like:
★ Contains Hyaluronic Acid, good for dry skins.
★ Rather good oil control.
★ Doesn't aggravates acne.
★ Good for sensitive skins

Downside:
- Not really smudgeproof, it still transfer to clothes.
- Not a fragrance-free and paraben-free product.
- Only one shade available
