EOS Jewel Brown [G - 208] Review

 Hi! I got another review on circle lenses. These lenses have a ton of names but I like to think of calling them the Jewel Series and I got these in brown. Brown is usually my safe color and I usually buy all my contacts in the brown to sample the lens and that sometimes sucks because I really like having all these beautiful color they have on the market like violet and pink. So enough blabbering, I'll start off with these wonder pictures of the vials.





Left Eye: No Lens                                        Right Eye: 14.5 Enlargement
With Flash

Natural Outdoor Light

With Flash
COLOR: Very beautiful brown color sometimes though I just can't really wear it though, because it sometime comes out too bold and requires darker or heavier make-up which I'm not fond of.
ENLARGEMENT: I would rate the enlargement very large and natural for a 14.5, it wasn't crazy puppy dog/alien big and I liked that.
COMFORT: The comfort is amazing 10/10, My favorite lens by far so far.
PATTERN: Plain and Simple. The color area which is the brown here is plainly pixelated and the limbal ring is a simple black ring.

These lenses were given to me after completing promotion requirements down at My Candy Eyes which were relatively simple. I really do enjoy service from this site and I really don't know what I would do without it. I received these in about two weeks time because it was during the thanksgiving holidays I believe. My Candy Eyes is a reliable seller and I recommend them to everyone I meet who is interested in circle lens.

OOTD: Christmas Eve


 I know that OOTD usually stands for "outfit of the day" but I'm renaming it for this post to "outerwear of the day"


 
I am wearing a black summer hooded zipper jacket and then I have a pea coat style with a belt. Around my neck I am wearing a fringed fashion scarf that is black with white polka dots and its very pretty, I think. I also am wearing a turquoise baret hat which I just worn pulled all the way down sort of beanie - like and it also has a black velvet fabric bow accent on the side and they're from Selena Gomez's clothing line.

FOTD: Natural Christmas "Eve"ning Look

I took this quick photo before I left to go to a local Christmas Eve music concert.


Eyes
Maybelline's "COLOSSAL" Mascara on Top and Bottom Lashes in Black
Maybelline's Eyestudio Lasting Drama 24 hour Gel Eye Liner in Black
MILANI's Black and Grey Mini Palatte
which is mostly concentrated on the lids of the eyes and I also put dark gray eye shadow on the lower outer section of my eyes.

Lips
Max Factor 3D Lipfinity, Lip Color in "Work Out Nude 700"

Max Factor Lipfinity 3D Max Wear Lipcolor


This product was a gift and I thought why not review it? This shade is in Work-Out Nude 700 without the gloss applied to really see the color. I applied this lip color without applying any concealer, I have tried that method before revealing no extreme results.


The color itself is very beautiful and very nude and natural. I haven't been too fond of long wear lip color because of the flaky after effects and also the fact that you didn't get true tube to lip colors and it was always disappointing to me.

This product pleasantly surprised me and I was very happy with the result.
Once you applied the color it slowly starts to basically adhere to your lips by drying over two minutes which you follow by next applying the provided gloss. That's right, dual ended.


Here is "Work - Out Nude 700" no gloss applied.
I don't usually apply the gloss that is provided on my lips already given because this look is so drying and makes my lips super wrinkled which I don't like and it is also not very moisturizing. So, it's good to apply one coat of your favorite lip balm to moisturize before you apply this long wear lip color. The color does come off with eating and drinking and I would not recommend using this when going out for dinner or other outings because I believe this is just for looking good and you would have to apply once again.

For those who are not going to food or drink outings, this is recommended. This lip wear lasts nicely 4 hours +.

Overall Review 9/10

The reason it is not a perfect ten is because when it came to the gloss it didn't feel like I could get enough of it on.

Recent Holiday News + Upcoming G-208 Jewel Brown Review

Hi, Everyone! I know that it has been a while since my last post and I've been really busy with the holidays and all these Christmas birthdays which I've really been enjoying, I've been trudging through snow up to my knees and it's very difficult when you are 4'9. Not to mention I also got ran over by a skidding van on my way to the store and I practically dove into the snow. That was fun,not. I think I almost had a heart attack. So there's a little snippet of my life which is not always full of excitement.





 So that's one of the reasons why I haven't been posting anything recently but on the other hand I have received a pair of free circle lenses from mycandyeyes and I can't wait to get all the pictures ready and the full review too, just be paitient. I'll have it up in no time.


Between today and this week, I'll posting like a mad woman to catch up on all my photos that I've taken. They need a home, lol, so posting will be consecutive.

EOS Adult Brown




-------------

No Flash, Natural Dim Light.

With Flash




The photo below the adult browns actually look brown and much like my own eyes. There is almost a hint of a violet color here too.
Which under orange or bathroom light can appear to be violet.

COMFORT: 9/10 I love the feel and comfort of these lenses so very very much! They are thinner, I believe more so than GEO lenses. I do have some discomfort occasionally but that's between the 6 and 8 hour mark. Also, my eyes are pretty dry so that does play a hand in my opinion.

COLOR/PATTERN: Firstly, know that these lenses are advertised as "Brown" lenses but they are in fact Grey. I knowingly purchased them with that in mind. In dim light settings to none, the lenses can change into violet and/or brown. There is no distinct pattern I think and they have a more crystallized effect, like a thin triangles with brown, grey, and violet like so : BGVBGV- -I hope that makes sense.

GEO Nudy Brown

I did a Review on the GEO Nudy Brown once before but I wanted to get better pictures and more of them, so you could really see how they look.



Close Up: Flash





Front Shots: Natural Light



Adverted Eyes: Natural Light



Whitened Out Flash



Close Up Strip: Flash



COMFORT: 7/10 * Pretty Comfortable lens but I find some discomfort when wearing them, and I dread it when I want to wear these. 
ENLARGEMENT: 2.5/5 * I believe is very noticeable and doesn't look unnatural. 
COLOR/PATTERN: Brown, and has a pixel pattern. Also, it is pretty opaque.

BoA COPY & PASTE COVER *made by me

I don't own any of this content and I really just wanted people to have a album cover for the Copy and Paste Repackage album and there isn't really one, and if there is..I don't really like it. Here is a screen cap from BoA's C&P music video and then I found the font at dafont.com and I searched there. I have the font if anyone wants it. I just added the text on to it and done. Simple.

Sally Hansen's Lip Inflation Extreme Review


This gold reflective lip tube is super glossy. I purchased this in clear and I really like it. As far as the formula that they use for this balm gloss it is NOT for soothing and has cinnamon in it, or it smells like it.

If you have sensitive lips or blemishes or cold sores or uhmm..anything where the skin has broken, DO NOT wear this, the ingredients are or can be harsh and can and will hurt. It has a bit of a cool sensation and it of course, is supposed to enhance, I bought it because I never had to buy any enhancing makeup and I wanted to see if it worked.

On my lips, personally, they only "inflate" just a bit and it smooths my lips out. In my video, for the angel blue on my channel I am wearing the gloss and you can tell because its super shiny. You only need a swipe or two to cover medium sized lips.

The length of the gloss would be about an hour , an hour and a half. So it's not lipstick. This looks great overlaying lip color but only with light gloss in my opinion.
If I had to rate this, it would be a 6/10.


It irritates a little bit on my lips because it is a plumper so that is a downside, but I like it because of the beautiful shimmer and gloss.

Geo Angel Blue Review

Hi Guys! This is an updated review on the Geo Angel Blue Review I did a couple of months ago. I wanted to start it over and make it better.
This is a picture of the Geo Angel Blue Design that you will be seeing in the photos below.
Taken with Flash
Taken in Dim Room Lighting
Taken in Natural Lighting
Detail / Pattern Close - Ups
I have taken photos in flash, without flash, room lighting and also in natural sunlight.

COMFORT: 8.5/10. also known as the standard.
The Angel Blues don't give me much of a hassle but compared to my other lenses they do, maybe it has to do with the pigments in the lenses that make it uncomfortable in my eyes sometime? I'm not sure. They are the darkest lenses that I have.

These lenses are pretty natural looking considering it all, the limbal ring makes it a bit dramatic but I think if you were to walk out somewhere public people would notice, the color is very bright when you're outside and also they wouldn't be able to see your real eye color unless they were about 3 feet away or closer.

I would recommend them, especially for those who want a little bit of drama.

How to Clean Your Make-up Brushes Easily

I actually just cleaned my eyeliner brush today and it feels so soft and feathery. I wish I had more that needed cleaning!

Shampoo and Conditioner

I used this method of cleaning for my brushes because it is the simplest and the quickest one to use especially since these are usual household items.

1. Run some warm water
2. Run water over the brush, holding it as you would a writing pencil.
3. Use a drop of shampoo and very gently massage it into the bristles of the brush, be very careful.
4. Run the brush against the palm of your hand to release the bristles and release the paint trapped within them, then repeat step 3.
5. Completely rinse out all the shampoo, and apply conditioner. Repeat Step 3 but with the conditioner not shampoo.
6. Rinse, Dry with a towel or a cloth carefully and then you're finished.

Goody's "Spin Pin" Hair Tool Review


The package comes with two spin pins and has two colors. Light and Dark. I have black hair and I bought the Dark Version but I also bought the Light version when it first came out and that was over 5 months ago and now the shelves are restocked and the spin pin is back and ready for more and so am I.



So how does this work exactly? Video coming up on that soon.
1.Grab all your hair into a ponytail.
2.Twist into a bun.
3. Push Pin into the bun with end being pushed into the center of the bun.

You may need both pins to secure the bun in place it is very simple to use and has your hair in better condition than a elastic hair band as it doesn't destroy your ends. This tool is great if you want to put your hair up quickly and also if its only for a couple of hours or anything at all. It's made to be invisible to everyone else.

I use it for anything, especially when I'm going to sleep and I've straightened my hair, to keep it from scrunching and denting and creating bumps, I pile it high on my head, stick in the spin pin, and it stays in all night.
When I wake up, I can take out the spin pin and brush out my hair and that's it.

I recommend it to anyone who has hair shoulder length hair or longer.
If your hair is thick, I recommend using both pins provided as the pins can become stretched and separated and it won't be the same as before.



The box also has some hair ideas using the spin pin and it also has instructions on how to use it.
I think anyone can use it. It takes a little bit to know what to do but afterward it will be second nature to you.

GEO Nudy Blue Review

Hey everyone! I'm back with my mini haul of GEO circle lenses. I took long enough right? I just recieved them yesterday but I have to soak them for at least 6 hours so I decided to let them soak throughout the night. Well here it is.

COMFORT: 10/10 it is amazing, these lenses are the most comfortable out of all the lenses that I own. It feels like I am not wearing anything on my eyeballs and they feel so breathable.

COLOR: The color of these nudy blues was brighter than I had expected, I was hoping they were darker and more subtle, but they aren't really unless you're in dim lighting. So, regardless of that I am very impressed. I love how bright they are and the pixel pattern is  really cool, and I like it alot because it in-between opaque and not. They are very crystally, if that was a word. I get the famous 'halo effect' with these. I can see myself wearing these everyday because of the comfort. I am actually wearing them right now. I am able to wear these longer than 4 hours with a bit of help from my eye drops.

You can check out my video of this review on my youtube channel once I edit and upload.lol.
In the video there will be a lot of pictures, because I really like these, alot. These are a great series for beginner circle lenses adventurists.
