Lens width: 48 mm (1.89 in)

Lens Type avaliable: 

Single Vision
Bifocal Vision

My experience: The order and the processing and the shipping took about two weeks to get to me.
I received a small cardboard box and within it, it had a clear "EBD" logo case along with the frames I ordered and a cloth. 
The Feel: The glasses themselves felt pretty nice, very light, and they didn't hurt my ears like my normal glasses.
Color / Design: The color was a beautiful deep red, and it was exactly as I hoped it would be.

PD: It's good to have your prescription ready when you have to check out your glasses, they ask for the PD, or pupilary distance which is basically the distance from the center of your eye to the bridge of your nose.
Mine was 29, which looking at the chart they give you - there is no 29, after some research I realized the eye doctor used one number. To get two, you have to multiply it by 2, and I got 58.
Believe me, before this site, I didn't even know about PD.

If you need some help finding it, they have a video and some pictures to help you get your PD, its all very helpful.

The prescription itself was actually spot on and I was overly impressed. 
I was afraid initially to try this site so I got the basic package. I got the single vision and I got the standard glaze and coat for the lenses.
They have way more to offer but I wasn't in the mood to put down the dollar bills.

I used a coupon they offered for 20% off I believe. (They have a tons of sales and discounts all the time check it out.) 
So in the end I checked out with this frame for less than $27.00 
Yeah, you read that right. 

I got this so I would have to worry about tearing up my hundred dollar -something pair of glasses. I was more than pleased and I actually wished I dished out more for this pair and went with the premium stuff like the UV coating and everything else, maybe next time!


Eyebuy direct review coming soon

I will be reviewing my recent purchase from eyebuydirect shortly. They offer a lot of lenses for reasonable prices and are suppose to be a good alternative to the eye glasses store. I mean, I would like to have glasses in my prescription without paying hundreds of dollars. They have a ton of options and add-ons if you'd like them.
It'll be coming up soon, so expect it!


Beyond the Zone Color Bombz: Temp Spray

For a long time, I wanted funky colors without the damage and long term hassle. I took all this time to take care of my hair and bringing it back to it's natural state. This, helps me achieve fun colors for a day and I can wash it out when I'm done with it.

Here are the bottles which I didn't photograph so I googled it. There you go.
image taken from "irockmynatural" blog via google image search.

I sprayed in bursts rather than streams and it doesn't dry out my hair too much. My hair is very dark and it still shows up. 
The good stuff:
The color payout is pretty great.
Lots of colors to choose from.
If you spray it in your eyes, you don't go blind and scream like a maniac -> IT DOESN'T BURN! <- Golden point.
No commitment
No damage
No bleaching
Shampoo color out

The bad stuff:
The color transfers onto your hands when you touch your hair. 
It will most likely transfer to your clothes, I haven't had this problem since I didn't apply it where it would rub on my clothing. 
If you apply too much it will appear like your hair is made up of wool and look too dry.

My experience:

I washed my hair, dried it, styled it, sprayed the colors in bursts in random areas near the ends of my hair.
Like ombre (Until desired color opacity) 
Walked around like a boss with amazing mermaid curls until it started raining.
The color kind of died down in my hair but it was still noticeable and I napped with odangos 
woke up, a few hours later showered and it took a rinse, and two washes with shampoo and i continued like usual with my hair care regime and my texture and curls were still the same. 
I would do this again.
Next time, I'm gonna go with the blue.


Hada Labo Tokyo: Anti Aging Hydrator

Product: This moisture serum was really silky and light. The product has a slight yellow tint to the formula.
Pros: Personally, I do think it delivered on retaining moisture during these harsh, cold winter months. It left my face feeling really, really soft and smooth to the touch. I wanted to use it all the time, but I only applied it once a day and usually after the shower since my skin is ready to be moisturized at that time.

Cons: The serum isn't really good to my skin. I have acne prone skin and its sensitive too. My skin is combination of dry and normal with some oily around the forehead/temples.
It broke me out on my chin mostly and some on my cheeks. I'm sure I'm not the only one where acne causes me to feel insecure. 

Overall: 3.8/5 Rating. This product works. In the short time that I used it ( 1 month ) it gave me what was promised. I had super soft and amazingly hydrated skin. Honestly, I didn't want to stop using it but it was either nice, supple skin with acne smothered across my face or to be clear faced with a bit of dryness. 


smoky palate by profusion

this palate has 12 shades to create a smoky eye of your choice intensity. it comes with beautiful highlight colors to great opaque "smokes". 

even including a little eye wand to apply your shadows. this is pretty good for a eyeshadow travel kit, i think.

these shadows have a decent wear time and have a decent opacity, the only thing is that the lights, really come up light. go figure. i believe that's only because of my skin tone.
this reminds me of the elf shadows, longer wear would require a primer.
i like the sets like these because they're small and i was planning on getting a new makeup overhaul to throw out some that i've had for an ungodly amount of time.


elf five pot eyeshadows

1. creme - highlight
2. taupe - shimmer
3. brown - light shimmer
4. plum - light shimmer
5. black - shimmer

These eye shadow pots don't exactly have a name so..

starting from left to right:
taupe, black, creme, plum, brown.

the colors overall are okay, i don't like the fancy shimmer that seems to go overboard with this set, however the opacity is pretty good. i like the plum color and i'm a fan of natural and nude colors so the browns are really nice for me to use for anytime.

the only thing that i would probably use with this is some kind of primer that will help it stay longer since it is unbelievably easy to smear all over the place.

this picture actually messes with my vision it looks so out of focus, its really annoying but that was with one swipe of my index finger the whole swatch test was easily rubbed off and of course it's not water proof or water resistant.
the shimmer however ends up with the most staying power and unless you have makeup remover, you might be looking like a disco ball for a while.


Happy New Year!

I don't know what resolutions I'll be scribbling up but I suppose I'll think of some goals to work on. Happy New Years everyone!

I guess, I'll try again to continue emaura. I'll have to do a lot of things on this blog but I guess it'll be okay..I can't give this blog up. There will be on going construction as I try to boost myself into caring for this blog again.
