Colour Nine Moon Gray

It’s always such a lovely surprise when I get  unexpected mail !
And even better when it’s from awesome mukuChu with new lenses for me to try out. I feel like a kid again opening them up, eager to see what colour and style I’ll be reviewing next *_* Aha, but .. enough about my childlike behaviour …

I haven’t had gray lenses in awhile so when I saw these, I was pretty excited to try them on!
You can purchase them from mukuChu over HERE.

LENS USAGE: UP TO 1 YEAR
SHELF LIFE: 3 YEARS
MANUFACTURER / ORIGIN: SOUTH KOREA
B.C.: 8.6mm
DIAMETER: 14.20mm
WATER CONTENT: 38%

Colour: ♥♥♥♡♡ – They’re quite ..dark? and don’t show up that well against my original eye colour
Design: ♥♥♥♡♡ – These are quite average – normal black ring around it
Comfort: ♥♥♥♥♡ – These were quite comfortable – I wore them for about 4 hours and I couldn’t even feel them!
Enlargement: ♥♥♥♡♡ – These don’t seem very enlarging at all (maybe slight?) But, if you can see in the image above, there is quite an amount of a clear space around the lens which I am not a particular fan of.
Overall: ♥♥♥♡♡ – Incredibly average lenses but alright for an every day look :)

As you can tell, I’m not a major fan of these lenses – they’re very average and boring in my opinion.
This is just my own personal opinion, but I feel that if I am going to be bothered to wearing coloured contacts, I want there to be a noticeable difference? But then again, that is just me. For someone who is just looking for a subtle colour change with not much of an enlargement effect, then these would definitely be a good choice!

I also want to highlight how dark they look in this above picture! But, if you look at my previous post, they do seem to look quite light. However, I’m pretty sure this difference is solely due to different weather/lighting conditions and my camera’s inability to pick up on the colour. But still, I can’t ignore that these lenses do look pretty dark for gray lenses.

Would you choose a subtle or intense colour?

GEO Flower Brown

You know what’s an awesome feeling? Getting mail.
Unless it’s bills, mail is probably the bestttt! Especially when you get packages, so when I got these lenses from mukuChu, I was super duper happy! Anyway, I think these are my first lenses that have some sort of ‘pattern’ in them ee!

MANUFACTURER / ORIGIN: SOUTH KOREA

Colour: ♥♥♡♡♡ – To be honest, they look exactly like my own eye colour – so it’d be great for a natural choice?
Design: ♥♥♥♥♡ – The flower design is unique and pretty! It doesn’t show up that well against the brown but still gorgeous
Comfort: ♥♥♥♥♡ – They were quite comfortable for the few hours I wore them, although my eyes tend to dry easily.
Enlargement: ♥♥♥♥♥ – Definitely an enlargement as it’s 15mm ..without being too freaky!

As I said, the colour seems very much like my own eye colour so it isn’t a huge deal for me. Of course, for people who don’t have brown eyes, the lens colour would be good for a colour change! And despite the flower design not being very noticeable, I think it’s a good thing? It’s like a subtle uniqueness! It looks nice in my opinion :)

I also decided to take my bear hat out to cover up my messy hair cos it’s adorable *__* ♥
Anyway back to the lenses, I think I’d recommend it to anyone who’s looking for some natural and subtle lenses!

Sparkly Nails~

I have ..quite a thing for sparkly nail polish!
It’s very hard for me to pick a matte nail polish over a sparkly one ..just because I’m attracted to all the glitter and sparkliness *__* ! So when Maggie from KkCenterHK asked me to choose polishes out of the X&D and EBALAY range, my eyes immediately spotted the sparkly and shimmery ones hehe! As you can see, I love glittery things! ♥

When they came in the mail, I was super stoked to try them both out!!
The X&D Shiny silver polish was excellent, it had a long thin brush making it easy for fine application! The EBALAY Golden Blue Iredescent was just a  very shimmery opaque colour, even after multiple (~5) layers! It’s colour is a bit hard to capture on camera ..but it’s purple-blue ish with gold in it? When it’s on its own, it looks like this.


(One coat, two coats, and … multiple coats because it was taking too long ~)

So it seemed obvious to me that if I wanted a nice colour, I’d have to layer it over a base colour!
They reminded me of galaxies ..so I picked (L-R) Ulta3 Pearly Grape, Ulta3 Hollywood and Australis dark blue/black.

I couldn’t get a clear photo because my camera wouldn’t focus ..so I made a short video/gif instead heh! But yeah, as you can see ..it brings out the respective base colours. I quite liked the really dark one the best, so I decided to go with that colour for all of my nails! Yay! Although, I think a really dark purple would be nice too ..but I’ll try that next time.

At this point, I decided to put the silver polish on the tips of my nails as well ..just to have a combo look!

But look at that! It looks purple in some angles, yet blue in others :) Ahh! The colours are so pretty that I couldn’t even capture them properly on camera eep. But yes, as you can probably tell, I really really like this combination of having it on top another colour! And the glittery silver polish just works so well with it :’) ! So much love for glitter!

So yes, I would definitely recommend both of these nail polishes! ♥
You can buy them from here and here!

Do you prefer sparkly or matte nail polishes?
