CamoEyes: Aqua 3 Tone Contacts

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Today, I am going to review a pair of lenses that was sponsored to me from CamoEyesCamoEyes sells non-prescription colored contact lenses, ranging from more naturally styled lenses to crazy special effects lenses. This company is located in the United Kingdom, but they ship internationally.

CamoEyes uses regular mail service via Royal Mail to ship their packages. The packaging for their products is fantastic!

DSC_2179_Fotor_CollageInside the bubble mailer, there were two boxes with the contact lens vials inside. The boxes kept the vials safe and secure! Here are the contents of the boxes:

Fotor_Collage

They sponsored the Aqua 3 Tone Contacts and the Red Mesh Contacts. Both of these lenses do not give enlargement; they are not circle lenses. These are colored contact lenses. Contact lenses from CamoEyes are not medical devices; they will not correct your vision. These lenses are great for people with 20/20 vision who don’t want to enlarge their eyes! They give vibrant color without the circle lens enlargement. These lenses are also great for people who love wearing their glasses but want to change up their eye color. I know sometimes I love wearing my own glasses!

Instructions

These instructions came inside each of the contact lens boxes. I think it’s great when companies send out instructions for the use and care of their lenses! It’s important to read contact lens instructions to make sure you understand how to take care of them. Remember, your health and safety comes first! Lenses from CamoEyes may have different lifespans, so be sure to read the box, vials, and instructions carefully. Make sure you know when your lenses expire! This goes for any contact lens, not just these ones.

In this post, I will focus on the Aqua 3 Tone Contacts.

I love the pretty aqua/teal color of these lenses! The life span of these lenses is 90 days after opening their vials. These lenses are mostly aqua, but they also have bits of black and gold to give the lenses an interesting design. Even though these are not enlarging lenses, the black limbal ring defines the eyes and gives the illusion that the eyes are bigger. I always love lenses with a solid limbal ring!

beautypluss_Fotor_Collage

I have bad eyesight… so if I am usually seen wearing my trusty old glasses. I hope my eyesight doesn’t get any worse… I don’t want to switch to a higher prescription again! In any case, I love how vibrant my eyes look even with my glasses on. My normal eye color is a very dark brown that looks black in most lighting, so this bright aqua is a welcome change!

glasses_Fotor_Collage

For this makeup look, I wanted to go for something more natural, something that would be easy to wear everyday. To be honest, I do not wear makeup that often. I’m very busy, so if I have time to wear makeup on an average school day, I only wear eyeliner. But more often than not, I don’t put anything on my face other than moisturizer. For this look for CamoEyes, I used foundation, neutral brown eyeshadow, black crayon eyeliner, black mascara, and a red lip tint. I never use mascara, but I wanted to try it out since my lashes are almost non-existent. I love the way false lashes look on me, but they can be a hassle. I hope you like this toned-down everyday makeup look!

You can use the coupon code “xiaorawr” for 10% off your purchase from CamoEyes! There is free shipping on all orders, by the way.

Feel free to ask me any questions. <3

MapleLens: Princess Mimi Apple Green Circle Lenses

MapleLens sponsored me this lovely pair of contact lenses. It came in my prescription, which is great, since I am very near-sighted. With these lenses, I could see clearly!

Here is how MapleLens packaged the circle lenses:

DSC_2157_Fotor_Collage

They shipped it out in a FedEx bubble mailer. The package was not ripped or damaged from the shipping process. Inside the mailer, MapleLens packaged the lenses and free lens case inside an additional bubble wrap for added protection. The lenses were also nestled inside a white box. They took many precautions to ensure the safe delivery of their product. The lens case is super cute too!

DSC_2161_Fotor

Checking the vials for the circle lenses, I confirmed that these are authentic circle lenses. They are not bootlegs! So these are definitely safe to use. MapleLens also included instructions for their circle lenses, which not many circle lens providers do. I think all circle lens providers should ship out instructions with their lenses to remind users of safety precautions!

DSC_2164_Fotor_Collage

Remember that you should always see an eye doctor before deciding whether or not contact lenses are right for you! I used to only wear glasses until I saw an eye doctor for a contact lens fitting. Also, when you use circle lenses, you need to take good care of them to ensure safety for your eyes. Make sure you clean your lenses well and use an appropriate contact lens solution. And this is very important: make sure your hands are clean when you handle your contact lenses!

beautyplus

For this sponsored review, I wore these lenses twice. Each time, I wore the lenses for a full day so I can accurately review the comfort of the lenses. The first time I wore these circle lenses was for my lolita coordinate. You may recognize this coord from my last review for TeaCupCastle. These green circle lenses give wonderful enlargement and vibrant color without it looking too fake. The green is not a neon green but a rich deep forest green. The lenses have different colored tones, such as a bit of yellow at the inner ring, which adds lovely depth to the eyes. In my opinion, the lenses’ design is very aesthetically pleasing! I love the solid black edge with the scalloped inner edge. The clear opening in the center of the lenses is large enough so I cannot see the lenses’ colored parts at all when I look around, even if I glance to my extreme right or extreme left. My vision always remains crisp and clear!

The second time I wore these circle lenses was for a local Homestuck cosplay meetup. I cosplayed the genderbent version of Jake English, which I haven’t cosplayed in years! I am so happy to revamp this cosplay and bring it back.

Last time I cosplayed Jake, I used my real hair… but since I chopped my hair short and dyed it over the summer, I can’t use my real hair for Jake (or for Jade either) anymore. I hastily trimmed and styled a plain black wig for this cosplay, and I like how it turned out! I might use this wig for Jade Harley in the future too. I know I’ll definitely use these lovely Apple Green circle lenses for Jade as well as for Jake!

PinkyParadise: Halloween Teaser

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

It is October now! Do you know what that means…? Halloween is just around the corner!

Halloween2014

PinkyParadise has an epic Halloween sale!!! They gave me a coupon code for my followers to get for 50% off their lenses!

💗 If you use the code “Halloween2014PearlPeony” you will get 50% off. 💗

However, the coupon code expires on October 6, so make sure you use it before then! 50% off is truly a great deal. Half-price~! (。・ω・。)ノ♡

I have some lenses from PinkyParadise, and I will review them here. All of these lenses are very comfortable, give great enlargement, and are easy to care for. Also, this is not a sponsored review!

beautypluss

First, I will review the Geo Princess Mimi Chocolate Brown (Bambi series) lenses. These circle lenses are super comfy. The brown color is rich and vibrant, and the enlargement is amazing. I use these lenses for both street fashion and for cosplay. You have probably seen me wear these lenses for some lolita coordinates. Here, you can see these lenses in my Magnet Meiko (Vocaloid) costest!

beautyplus

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Style: ☆☆☆☆ Cute design! I love the black limbal ring with the scalloped inner edge. However, it sometimes looks odd unclose, especially if I am staring to the far right or left.

Enlargement: ☆☆☆☆☆ Great enlargement for the perfect dolly look! Since the color is brown, it can still pass as natural from a distance. But your eyes definitely look much bigger!

Color: ☆☆☆☆☆ Love this rich brown! There are multiple tones of brown in the design as well, which adds depth to the eyes. These lenses definitely remind me of chocolate.

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆ Very comfortable! I can wear it for 8 hours without any irritation.

Next, I am going to review the pink circle lenses that I currently use. I use these for my Hazuki Nagisa (Free!) cosplay, but I also use them for fashion coordinates. These are called the Vassen Sakura Candy Pink Brown lenses!

Photographer: SuperV

In some lighting, it looks pink, but sometimes, it looks more like a beige-brown. These lenses are super pretty and give wonderful enlargement, but they do not consistently appear pink. As you can see in the selfie below, these lenses make my eyes look huge!

beautyplus

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Style: ☆☆☆☆ The style is simple but super cute. I think it gives me that anime look~! The limbal ring is dark brown, but it looks reddish in some lighting (which I love!).

Enlargement: ☆☆☆☆☆ Wonderful enlargement! These are way bigger than my natural eyes. The brown limbal ring also helps my eyes stand out.

Color: ☆☆☆☆ The color looks pink sometimes, but more like a muted brown at other times. I think it depends on the lighting.

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ These are one of my most comfortable lenses! I have worn them for an entire day at a con (~12 hours), and they did not irritate my eyes. I sometimes forgot I was even wearing circle lenses.

(☆ = Most negative/Not good at all, ☆☆ = Not that good, but okay ☆☆☆ = Neutral/No opinion/No answer, ☆☆☆☆ = Great, ☆☆☆☆☆ = Most positive/Fantastic!)

I have not decided what I will dress up as for Halloween this year… But I do have some ideas. I might want to try a creepy-cute demon look, or I might cosplay (because I really love cosplaying…). Maybe I will try to cosplay as one of my OCs! I have many creepy OCs from short stories and novels that I wrote back in middle school and high school. Unfortunately, since I began college, I have not had time to do much creative writing. I have written some poems and snippets of stories, but no novels. I definitely want to try something creepy this year if I have the time and materials!

Remember that you can use the coupon code “Halloween2014PearlPeony” for 50% off. Check out PinkyParadise for an amazing selection of circle lenses, false eyelashes, makeup products, and more!

TeaCupCastle: Stormborn Claw Necklace

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Today I am going to review a lovely necklace for you all: the Stormborn Claw Necklace from the Etsy shop TeaCupCastle. TeaCupCastle has a variety of handmade jewelry using vintage findings.

The Stormborn Claw Necklace is inspired by Daenerys Targaryen (one of my favorite characters from Game of Thrones!!). If you love Game of Thrones, you should check out TeaCupCastle’s other Game of Thrones-inspired jewelry, like the Night’s Watch Ring and the Lannister Lion Crest Pin.

Now, onto the review!

TeaCupCastle

TeaCupCastle mailed out the package in a bubble mailer. The mailer arrived completely in-tact, with no tears at all. Inside the mailer was a coupon, a business card, and a box sealed with cute tape. The necklace was safely nestled inside the box on a fluffy bed. The pendant was even tucked inside a small plastic bag for added protection!

DSC_2190

I love this necklace and hope to wear it many times in the future.

For this sponsored review, I incorporated the necklace into a lolita coordinate. I love how it looks with the gothic lolita aesthetic!

beautypluss

Here is the coordinate rundown:

Necklace: Tea Cup Castle

Hair accessories: Offbrand

Blouse: Metamorphose

JSK: Chess Story

Socks and Boots: Offbrand

Rings: Offbrand

NECKLACE

The pendant orb of this necklace is a gorgeous deep purple that seems to change color slightly, depending on the lighting. Sometimes, it looks so dark that it is almost black, and other times, it looks like a vibrant shade of purple. Upon close observation, I noticed bits of green that slithers its way around the orb. The green is not too noticeable from a distance, but up close, it looks really cool. It reminds me of a mystical planet or (dare I say it…?) a dragon egg! I can just imagine the orb cracking along the green veins.

DSC_2157 Final verdict on this necklace: ☆☆☆☆☆ out of ☆☆☆☆☆ ! I have no complaints whatsoever. The necklace is easy to wear, everything is well-constructed and sturdy, and it’s truly beautiful. This necklace works wonderfully for lolita fashion, but it would also be easy to incorporate into other fashion styles and even casual wear. The necklace would really stand out against a plain t-shirt, for example!

You should all check out TeaCupCastle for awesome jewelry and more~! If you want to make a purchase, feel free to use the following coupon code for 15% off: “XOXO15″

Angel Contacts

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Angel Contacts sent me an adorable package to review! The package included three pairs of false eyelashes and one contact lens case. The package itself was a standard mailer, and there were no rips or tears in the packaging. The items were safely nestled inside its package. The three pairs of false eyelashes included were different styles. The deco contact lens case is too cute!! Red is my favorite color, and I also have a sweet tooth, so I absolutely love the red dessert-shaped case. There are even little berry and mint leaf details! If you are interested in this product, it is called the Strawberry Mint Lens Case ($5.00). 

DSC_2177

Now, let’s talk about the lashes! Angel Contacts sent me Dolly TiaraAngel Luxe, and Sweet Glam lashes. All three pairs were in the same packaging, and can be stored in their respective trays and re-used. The lashes themselves are surprisingly light for such thick and lengthy lashes! They are easy to apply since the lash bands are so flexible, and they do not irritate my eyes. When I blink, they don’t shift at all. Once glued, they feel very secure. They are also not painful to remove if you use eye makeup remover! 

DSC_2178The style of all the lashes are absolutely gorgeous! I love how each style is flattering to my eyes. Read on for specific reviews for each pair of false lashes…

beautyplus

Dolly Tiara is perfect for a dolly look; you will truly look like a beautiful doll with these lashes! I love how they make my eyes look so big. You can wear them alone, or pair them with underlashes. I used underlashes in these photos because I wanted to go all-out with the dramatic makeup for the pastel photos. The underlashes are not from Angel Contacts, and when I compare the underlashes to the Dolly Tiara lashes, the Dolly Tiara lashes are definitely higher quality! The underlashes are stiffer and harder to apply than the lashes from Angel Contacts.

dollytiara3_Fotor_Collage

In addition, as you can see in many of my photos, the underlashes shift and look odd in some pictures. The Dolly Tiara lashes, on the other hand, look fantastic! These lashes are fantastic for over-the-top sweet lolita or for gyaru. The Dolly Tiara lashes, with their exaggerated points, would also be great for cosplay!

Ratings for Dolly Tiara:

Style: ☆☆☆☆☆ I am in love with the design of these lashes! They truly stand out. 

Length: ☆☆☆☆

Volume: ☆☆☆☆☆

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ All of these lashes are so comfortable! I can’t decide which one is the comfiest. 

maybe

Sweet Glam has a very thick false lash design that makes it great for adding volume to your lashes. They are very thick without looking chunky since each segment of lashes taper to a point. All of these points make the lashes look full and thick, whether your eyes are open or closed. These are dramatic lashes that will really open up your eyes!

sweetglamclosed_Fotor_Collage

You can use Sweet Glam for a special occasion, for cosplay, or for fashion; they are versatile lashes. These lashes were the perfect width for my eyelids as well! If you want to decrease the width of the lash band, it would be easy to cut the ends and trim the lashes to fit your eyes. 

Ratings for Sweet Glam:

Style: ☆☆☆☆

Length: ☆☆☆☆☆

Volume: ☆☆☆☆☆ These lashes have the best volume, out of all the lashes I have ever tried. I love how thick these lashes are!

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ All of these lashes are so comfortable! I can’t decide which one is the comfiest. 

 meiko

Angel Luxe is lush and pretty, but less over-the-top than Dolly Tiara (because it does not have the exaggerated points in its design) and Sweet Glam (because it doesn’t have the extreme thickness). Angel Luxe is great for enhancing your natural beauty! 

 angelluxe3_Fotor_Collage

Angel Luxe would be great for accentuating your eyes in a pretty and subtle way for cosplay, or for fashion if you want to have longer and thicker eyelashes without looking unnatural.

Ratings for Angel Luxe:

Style: ☆☆☆☆

Length: ☆☆☆☆ Great length! From a distance, you won’t look like you are wearing falsies. You’ll look like you have naturally long and beautiful lashes!

Volume: ☆☆☆☆

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ All of these lashes are so comfortable! I can’t decide which one is the comfiest.

Mohu Store: Crochet Flower Headband Review

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

square button

Mohu Store sponsored this lovely crocheted flower headband for review. I love Mohu’s unique crocheted accessories, and this headband’s trio of cute little crocheted flowers caught my eye. Mohu shipped out the package from Canada, so it took a while for the package to arrive at my address, but it was a reasonable wait for international shipping. I have no complaints about the shipping!

DSC_2166

The package can be seen above: no rips or tears. Even from the outside, you can tell that there is a box inside the package. Mohu Store has one of the cutest packagings I have ever seen, by the way! I love how they put everything into a little box tied with string and a cute doily detail. The Mohu Store tag on the string is an adorable touch! The box was functional as well as cute; it was secure and protected its contents well. 

DSC_2167

Seriously, perfect packaging! 5/5 stars. The headband was safely nestled inside the box along with two adorable Mohu Store stickers and a note from Lauren: 

DSC_2169_Fotor_CollageThank you so much for the hand-written note, Lauren! <3 I love personal notes like this one. The stickers are so cute too… >w< Now, let’s focus on the headband. The black headband itself is sturdy and the metal surface is smooth. The three crocheted flowers are securely attached to the headband, off-center. I checked the flowers, and it does not look like they will come off easily. I’m impressed by the quality of this headband!

closerr

The headband is also very comfortable to wear. I wore the headband all day (not just for taking the photos for this sponsorship). I wore the headband in the morning after washing my face, and I used it to keep my bangs out of my face when I applied my makeup. After taking photos, I wore the headband until I was ready to shower at night. The headband did not irritate me at all, and it did not have a slipping problem either. 

headband

I love the crocheted flower design… It is simple but elegant and beautiful. This headband can be used for dressier occasions as well as casual days; it is very versatile! The red and pink yarn flowers are pretty easy to match with outfits too. 

Here is the coordinate I paired with the headband:

I am wearing an Axes Femme dress and an offbrand cardigan I snagged from a thrift shop. It’s a simple coord, but I think it goes well with the cute yet elegant headband from Mohu.

Sugar Pop Party Shop: Jewelry Review

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Sugar Pop Party Shop gave me some jewelry to review. I chose two necklaces and a ring, but the shop also threw in two cute bracelets as freebies for me. Check them out on Etsy and Storenvy!

Now first things first: let’s talk about the package! 

DSC_2167

The package I received was a sturdy bubble mailer. There were no rips or tears, and the package was easy to open. Good choice in packaging, Sugar Pop Party Shop! 

DSC_2173Inside the package was a cute sheer drawstring bag… filled with goodies! You can see the two freebie bracelets right there on the outside, and then there’s also a pink box and a blue drawstring bag.

Here are the contents of the bag:

DSC_2175Jamie, the owner of Sugar Pop Party Shop, even included a sheet of Disney Princess stickers! There is one thing missing from this photo though: the glitter Kawaii necklace. Here is the story: Even though the necklace was packaged in the pink box, it somehow got damaged during shipping.

DSC_2157

The necklace’s pendant, the drippy “Kawaii” text, snapped in half. I emailed Jamie immediately to let her know that the necklace was damaged, and she responded quickly and said she would ship out a replacement. Jamie also assured me that she always replaces any item lost or damaged during shipping, so you can rest assured that Sugar Pop Party Shop will take care of any damaged items you receive.

Sugar Pop Party Shop Kawaii Necklace

I received the replacement necklace in a timely manner and was very pleased! It was completely intact and I have no complaints. The necklace is super cute and easy to wear.

For this sponsorship, I decided to model the jewelry in two pastel-themed coordinates. One of them is a sweet lolita outfit, and the other one is just a cute harajuku-style outfit (inspired by both gyaru and fairy kei). Both outfits include the bracelets and macaron ring as accessories. You can find all jewelry pieces in Sugar Pop Party Shop’s Etsy and Storenvy.

Fotor_Collage

Let’s start with the non-lolita outfit, featuring the Kawaii necklace! 

DSC_2192

 I love this Kawaii necklace! It’s very pink: there’s a pink chain, a hot pink bow charm, and the super sparkly “Kawaii” pendant! The pendant is very clean-cut and vibrant. The glitter does not rub off, which is great! The necklace secures at the back using a lobster clasp. It was a bit too long on me, but I was able to make the necklace shorter by clasping it on one of the chain links. It’s easy to adjust the length!

In the above photo, you can see the mint macaron ring and the two beaded bracelets from Sugar Pop Party Shop. All these pieces of pastel jewelry are well-made and too cute~! I’m very pleased with the bracelets because usually bracelets are too large for my wrists and slide off constantly. These bracelets are small enough to fit my thin wrists, and they are also stretchy, so I can easy put them on and take them off without worrying about ripping the bracelets. The macaron ring is on an adjustable band, so it should fit a variety of sizes. The detail on the macaron ring is incredible! The texture of the cream in the center looks almost like real cream, and the color choices are superb. Pink, mint, and red are such a great color combination! 

lolita coord_Fotor_Collage

Now let’s talk about sweet lolita, featuring the chocolate bar necklace! 

lolita

The chocolate bar necklace is adorable. I love the gold chain; I think gold suits this necklace best! The little heart and bow at the top of the chocolate bar pendant is a perfect addition too. The necklace works well as a statement piece, and I think it would go great with sweet lolita coordinates and otome coordinates. This can also be worked into classic lolita, and I can see it working for aomoji-kei. 

beau

I would highly recommend Sugar Pop Party Shop for anyone interested in J-Fashion or alternative fashion, or even sweets enthusiasts or people who love cute things! This shop has a wide variety of adorable products to suit different tastes. Check out what’s in stock at their Etsy and Storenvy! Even though this was a sponsored review, keep in mind that the opinions expressed in this review were thoughtful and honest. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask me!

I love Sugar Pop Party Shop!

I’m Your Present: Panda Collar Clip Review

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The super cool store I’m Your Present sponsored me this panda collar clip to review. It’s such a cute and unique idea! I’ve never seen a collar clip before, so I was excited to review this item. I hope you all love it as much as I do!

DSC_2204

The package was shipped via USPS First-Class Mail. Here is how the clip was packaged:

DSC_2166

There were no rips or tears in the bag. The packaging was very secure, and nothing was damaged.

DSC_2170

Everything in the package was wrapped in pink tissue paper! Inside the tissue paper was a box (with the panda collar clip inside), a business card (postcard-sized), candy, and cute bobby pins! The bobby pins and the candy were pleasant surprises since Kelly, the designer for I’m Your Present, told me she would send me the panda clips. I had no idea there would be extra goodies in the sponsored package! 

DSC_2172

The panda collar clip were safe and sound nestled inside their box! I checked the item, and there are no flaws or damages. 

imyourpresent

I am happy with these adorable clips! They are very high-quality; not flimsy or cheap at all. The clips hold onto my shirt collar without slipping.

The panda design is crisp and clean. There is a layer of laser-cut white over a layer of laser-cut black for the design, which adds depth to the piece. The gem-stone panda eyes are a lovely touch! This collar clip can be worn on a variety of occasions; you can wear it casually, or you work it into a more formal coordinate. If the shirt has a collar, you can clip it on!

The gold chains are securely attached to the panda clips, secured through a small hole at the bottom of each clip. The back of each panda piece has a gold clip glued on.

Out of curiosity, I tried to use this panda collar clip as a hair clip. I love hair accessories… and you know what? It works well as a hair clip too! It didn’t pull on my hair and was comfortable to wear. It clips onto my hair as securely as it clips onto my shirt collar. ^_^ So if you don’t wear collared shirts, you can still use this cute accessory.

LBC: The Most Versatile Lolita Item I Own

Tags

The most versatile lolita item I own would definitely be a blouse! Blouses can be worn under JSKS or with skirts, and blouses can also be used for ouji coordinates. I am not sure which blouse I have is the most versatile one, but after some minutes of thinking, I decided that my most versatile blouse is my black Fanplusfriend short-sleeved blouse.

I believe that this blouse is the most versatile item I own because it can be used for a variety of different substyles: sweet lolita, classic lolita, gothic lolita, and even casual lolita. It has a simple design and the color is solid black (no other colors work their way into this blouse). The simplicity of this blouse makes it easy to match with different styles, as long as the color black works for the coordinate. Black is an easy color to match too! If the blouse was blue or red, for example, it would be harder to mix and match. In addition, the short sleeves make the blouse ideal for summer heat, and it can be layered with a bolero or cardigan for the autumn or spring, plus with a jacket or coat (plus a scarf and gloves) for winter!

Here are some previous coordinates using this blouse:

It was a really hot summer day, and I did not want to deal with the high-collar design of this blouse, so I unbuttoned the top buttons. As you can see below, the blouse still looks decent even though I didn’t button it all the way to the top! It worked quite well for the heat.

UNIQSO: I.Fairy Hanabi Circle Lenses in Violet

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I know this WordPress blog focuses on J-Fashion, but I would also like to use this blog for in-depth reviews! If you are interested in circle lenses, please read on!~

UNIQSO sponsored a pair of circle lenses to be used for cosplay, and even though I received these lenses for cosplay, I will definitely wear these circle lenses for non-cosplay purposes too! I can wear them for lolita fashion, or even casually if I do not feel like wearing glasses. If you just want to see the final review for the circle lenses, scroll down to the bottom of this post!

The Rundown: 

Here is the original package that I received in the mail:

The package did not take too long to arrive at my doorstep, and I had no problems with customs. The shipping method that UNIQSO used was reliable! They even marked the package as a gift, which is great.

Inside the package, the contact lens case and the box with the circle lens tubes were safely inside! I was pleased that the circle lens tubes were wrapped in bubble wrap to ensure extra protection.

I soaked my new circle lenses in contact solution overnight, and then the next day, I wore them for the first time to costest Nishikino Maki, a character from the idol anime Love Live! School Idol Project. The name of these lenses are I.Fairy Hanabi Circle Lenses, and the color is Violet.

The Look:

I took so many selfies when I costested Maki! I cut and styled the wig the day before the costest; I am happy with how the wig turned out, but I may need to re-trim the bottom lengths. Enough about my wig though; let’s talk about these amazing circle lenses! I love the I.Fairy Hanabi design. It’s subtle, but very pretty! The little swirls are cute up-close. The ring of violet color is thin, but vibrant. The thin ring also makes my pupils look very large, which I think gives my eyes a very cute dolly effect. There is also a black limbal ring which gives great definition!

I put in these contacts before testing my cosplay or doing any makeup, and when I first put them into my eyes, there was no stinging or discomfort. They were not difficult to apply at all! I usually have some trouble with circle lenses, especially when they have large diameters, but these slipped onto my eyes without any problem. I did not need to use any eyedrops before or after! I wore the circle lenses for the whole day, and my eyes did not feel dry or irritated. The circle lenses did not slip around in my eyes either. I would highly recommend the I.Fairy Hanabi circle lenses!

Here are some up-close and cropped photos of just my eyes so you can check out the circle lenses in more detail:

In certain types of lighting or angles, the difference between my real pupils and my real irises can be seen since the colored irises of the circle lenses are a thin ring that reveal some of my natural irises. As seen above, you can see my small black pupil and my brown irises. I think it looks a bit odd, but it could also give a very cool and pretty effect to your eyes!

In other types of lighting or angles, my brown eyes and pupils blend together to look the same. This makes it look like the entire area inside the circle lenses’ irises are the pupils! I love this dolly eye effect.

Final Review:

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Communication: ☆☆☆☆☆ Throughout the sponsorship process, UNIQSO was great with communication! Their representative was very polite and kind, and also responded to my questions in a timely manner. They explained the terms and conditions clearly, and also provided a tracking code for my package.

Packaging: ☆☆☆☆☆ As stated in the first section of this post, the packaging was amazing! I definitely trust UNIQSO to ensure that their products are undamaged. I have purchased from UNIQSO before, and never had any problems with their packaging or shipping.

Style: ☆☆☆☆ Very cute design, but I think it looks better from a distance rather than up-close in certain lighting. This is very minor though; the style is still amazing.

Color: ☆☆☆☆☆ Very vibrant violet!

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ One of the most comfortable lenses I’ve ever worn.

(☆ = Most negative/Not good at all, ☆☆ = Not that good, but okay ☆☆☆ = Neutral/No opinion/No answer, ☆☆☆☆ = Great, ☆☆☆☆☆ = Most positive/Fantastic!)
