REVIEW: GEO Star Collection Super Angel Gray


Hello all!

I'm am very excited right now because after almost a year, i have achieved my very first sponsor! Can you believe a company wants to collaborate with me? I'm pretty excited, i guess my hobby of blogging is going somewhere :) This awesome first sponsor is Pinkicon!! 

Pinkicon is a company based in Hong Kong that specialises in the latest beauty trends, more specifically circle lenses, in Korea and Japan. They stock over 500 different circle lenses, from the most natural to the most dramatic. I guarantee they are 100% authentic because they had an authenticity peel off sticker on the lens bottles. And best of all, its free shipping worldwide!

I was sent the GEO Star Collection Super Angel Gray. Delivery time took around two weeks which is impressive as packages from Hong Kong usually arrive in a month or so. These are actually my first pair of circle lenses, i've never actually worn them before but were always curious about them.

Specifications
  • 14.80mm diameter (normal contact lenses would be around 14mm)
  • 38% water content
  • Duration: 1 year
  • Base Curve (B.C): 8.6mm
  • Origin: Korea
  • Color: Gray

Packaging
  • just your typical circle lens bottles
  • tightly sealed, ensures the circle lenses weren't contaminated 




Colour
  • I absolutely fell in love with the colour
  • It's a very neutral toned grey, not dramatic or bold at all which is great because i prefer natural colours 
  • Simple black border
  • On my dark eyes however, they almost look dark blue
  • The grey isn't very noticeable unless you're under bright sunlight. I actually prefer this



Enlargement:

  • 14.80mm (almost a cm bigger in diameter to your normal pupil size)
  • when i first put them on, i was actually shocked how large they were
  • these are the perfect lenses for imitating anime eyes
  • absolutely perfect for cosplay
  • because of how big they are, they make you look much much younger!
  • the large size gives you a young and innocent look
  • people who are looking for a natural size should stay away from these lenses 
  • I would avoid super heavy eye makeup with these lenses on, because they are pretty dramatic by themselves 


Wearing the lens on one eye so you can see how enlarging they are

The circle lenses on both eyes

Comfort
  • Very comfortable which is really surprising because i would think the bigger the lenses the more uncomfortable 
  • Very clear 
  • They do get a bit dry after a couple of hours. It just might be me though, i've been wearing contact lenses for almost 5 years so the water content in my eyes has probably become more dry over time


Design
  • The colour itself is very natural
  • The unnatural factor is the size itself 
  • Very dolly like


As you can see, the grey is hardly noticeable, but an almost dark blue 

I'm really loving how they look in photos

Service

Overall
  • Perfect for cosplay
  • Looks great in photos
  • Not natural at all because they are super enlarging
  • Gray isn't super noticeable
  • Super comfortable
  • People will definitely notice the circle lenses
  • If you wear contacts/glasses normally like me, the lenses are true to their power

REVIEW: Innisfree Color Glow Lipstick in No.10 Daisy Coral

Long time no post! I've been super busy with life ever since i landed a part time job, began yet another semester of university and well life in general. But my time management is under way and i finally have a new review for you all! 

Anyway i've found a new favourite everyday lipstick, not surprising being Innisfree because they always have the best formulas for lipsticks for the price you pay!

This lipstick caught my eye because of its unique peachy/coral colour and if you know me, i love peachy corals! 


Packaging
  • minimalistic, sleek, slim, long
  • comes in their typical recycled paper package which i love



Colour
  • a coral-pink colour
  • not too bold, neutral enough for everyday wear
  • isn't matte, glossy finish 
  • the colour in the tube looks super bold and bright, but really is more neutral 
Pigmentation
  • starts at a low/medium coverage, but is definitely buildable which is what i love about it
  • you can tell how bold and pigmented it can get from from my lip swatches
  • doesn't accentuate flaky bits with one or two swipes, they do start to eventually become obvious with the more swipes you do
Texture
  • very creamy
  • moisturising like a lip balm, so i don't usually need to apply lip balm before its wear 
  • think of it as a very pigmented lip balm 
Fragrance
  • a very slight floral scent, it isn't overpowering at all, and you tend to forget about it soon after
Wear Time
  • just like any lipstick, it will slowly fade throughout the day and leave lip stain marks on your drinking cups
  • 2 hours max with eating and drinking
  • 4 hours with minimal touch, with a gradual fade 
  • the staying power isn't comparable to their lip tints, which are much more long-lasting because they leave a bit of a stain, whereas the color glow lipsticks don't 
Picture of me wearing the colours / lip swatches

 Overall
  • 4/5
  • i will repurchase, and am thinking of buying more colors from the range when i save up
  • very creamy, moisturising, and neutral enough for everyday wear
  • constant re-application, so do not recommend for those who don't like constantly reapplying their lipstick

Have you guys tried this? What did you think? :)
