PinkyParadise - Black Friday Sale!

Helloooo dear readers <3
I have something exciting for you today!

Do you know what Black Friday is?
Although I was in America during a Black Friday, my first host family decided it would be too dangerous for us to go so I never got to experience it first hand (I don't blame them!). But basically it's a day where most, if not all, American retail stores stay open and have some massive sales going on. Hordes consisting of hundreds of people line up for hours and suffer from lack of personal space and the smell of other people's unwashed hair.

But why go through all that when you can sit at home in your comfortable pyjamas, drink hot chocolate with baby marshmallows, and enjoy PinkyParadise's Black Friday sale where you can get 50% off on selected lenses?  
Geo Nudy Series Circle Lenses

[Review] - Geo Starmish Brown circle lenses (on light eyes)

I'm trying out a new layout for my lens reviews so, if possible, please leave some feedback telling me what could be done better and also which swatches you'd like to see (indoor, window light, yellow light, etc.) It would be much appreciated! ♡

Also, thank you for checking back! I know so many bloggers tell their readers to keep coming back for more but I never thought somebody would actually do that for me ;-;
I promise I will try to blog as much as possible even though my exam paper is coming up.
Thank you!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It's been a while since my last lens review, hasn't it? 
Today I'm back with a new review for you girls on some lenses I bought for my Konan cosplay!
This will be a review on the Geo Starmish Brown circle lenses from HoneyColor!

The lenses came in a sweet box like this~ aaaand the reason for that is because, at the time of my purchase, HoneyColor was having a "buy one pair, get one free" offer so I actually got two pairs that day. I will save the reviewonf the other pair for later on~
As always, the lenses came with a cute animal lens case. This time I got blue... bears I think?
The rip was there already when I opened the box. I don't know how ;;
And at last we have the lens in its vial. The colour they are on this picture was exactly what I was looking for so of course I was very excited to try them on.

I feel like I should have taken more picture on different light (oh well, I can do that in my next review). So this time I will have to do with these three taken outside, in window light, and yellow light (in that order) 


Comfort   
The first time I wore them was in school. Since I was going to use them for a convention, I wanted to make sure that they were comfortable enough for me to wear. I put them in around 7am but already started to feel a slight pressure around 11am and around an hour after I had gotten a pretty bad headache. So I took them out and noticed a red halo around my pupil (look to the left of and below my pupil).
(darkened to show the red)
I have earlier experienced problems like that (even my normal daily lenses) so the day of the con I decided to use eye drops right before putting them in. After that, I completely forgot that I was wearing them because they were so comfortable! 
I wore them for way longer than what is recommended (I know, shame on me) and it wasn't before many many many hours had passed that my eyes began to feel tired. So yes, very comfortable. I wouldn't bash them because of my first try with them because that clearly was my own fault for having dry eyes.

 Enlargement    ( 4½)
Having a thick, black limbal ring really helps these lenses are larger and I love it! There's not much more to say. My friends say I look like a doll when I wear them.

Colour   
Since the lenses were bought solely for the purpose of cosplay, the colour was the most important factor. I looked through countless (not even exaggerating here) of pairs of lenses but either they were the wrong colour, an ugly design, from a sketchy website, or simply like those cheap halloween lenses that don't come with prescription. Then, after days of looking at them, I decided to buy this pair and I truly believe this is the pair of lenses that come closest to the desired amber colour (although they are more of a medium dark honey brown). They're quite vibrant on my light eyes but they seem to be even more vibrant on dark eyes. When not in direct sunlight, they cover my entire iris, making it look like a have naturally big brown eyes.

Overall
 (4½)
Geo Starmish Brown was my second pair of lenses and the first pair ever that I bought specifically for cosplay (Konan - Naruto).

I won't say that they have the amber colour I was going for but they certainly are vibrant and much more natural looking than the other lenses I compared them to. Because of them not being too orange, I would seriously consider wearing these for every day use (I have to use my other pairs before they expire though).

Sadly, the colour variation for these lenses is not so great compared to others. They come in this brown colour and  black and I have read that these brown ones have a better enlarging effect than the black ones. Perhaps I should try those too one day?
This marks the end of my review on the Geo Starmish Brown circle lenses from HoneyColor!
I hoped you liked the new "layout". Please tell me if there are some things you think I could do better (^◡^)

You can buy these lenses HERE on HoneyColor and also on PinkyParadise HERE.

Happy Halloween!

This was supposed to be another product review but the truth is that I haven't had the time to finish it yet. ~
*Bows deep in apologize* 

The most important event for our charity group will be held Wednesday and I've been busy making preparations for it.
I have been terrorized by gruesome nightmares almost every night the past 3 weeks, causing me to wake up several times each night only to fall back asleep into new nightmares and now experiencing fatigue due to lack of sleep. 
Our big and scary exam-paper-assignment has begun and since it's such a huge assignment I need to prepare a LOT (which I haven't yet, shame on me), and then there is also the next convention coming up next weekend aaaaaaaand I haven't even finished my costume yet!
Stress level: over 9000! ヽ(*´Д`*)ノ

So yea... I still have to take care of all these things before I can sit back down and make a proper post again. I promise I will do my best! Expect the next post in around 2 weeks time unless my luck suddenly turns.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

October 31st is probably the one day a year I most genuinely wish I was still back in America
- Not because I want to beg candy from strangers but because I get to dress up and/or truly challenge my make-up skills!

......Buuuuuuuut *reality check* I'm staying in Denmark now and although Halloween has grown more popular the past 5 years or so, it still isn't widely celebrated and dressing up would, therefore, still be considered weird.
So instead of celebrating all hallow's eve last Friday, I actually went to an 80's party as school...
I would have LOVED to make an awesome costume and really get into it but this year I neither had time, money, or a reason to do so.
Lame excuses, I know, and I'm pretty disappointed with myself too. I did, however, get to play with make-up a little due to a sudden urge (probably a side effect from listening to this song on repeat for days). The outcome was this: 
I would love to one day be able to really get into it and make it look more real and scary but for this year, it's all you get~

I'm still practicing my photoshop skills so no way on Earth I'd leave you without a few other versions!
The original~
I'd originally wanted to remove my iris + pupil to make it look like I was wearing a white sclera lens but something went wrong and I accidentally ended up with this cat/snake eye .__.
I had to take the picture in bright light to get the highest picture quality but I like this dark version MUCH more!
Now, I won't say I wasn't proud of this when I took the picture but I will strive to make this even better next year! Wait for it! Only 363 days to go!
