Review: (Fynale) Hello Kitty (aka. Princess Kitty) Brown

Whew! Back to reviewing!  ((Thanks for all the warm wishes, guys! My mum's recovering nicely. <33  I am definitely on back massage/heating pad detail, though. Haha.))  Anyway, these lenses were very kindly sponsored by LoveShoppingholics~.  (I reviewed their service here.)

(I look oddly pale in this pic...)

Enlargement:  9.5/10  These are 15 mm and totally look like it.  They enlarge quite a bit.

Colour/Design:  8/10  Let's get the obvious out of the way: these lenses have Hello Kitty's face printed on them.  Quite a few times, too.  However, this is not very visible in real life.  The colour is too dark in most lighting to distinguish what the tiny shapes are.  :[   ~~   Awesomely enough, this golden brown lens tends to give a bit of a halo effect, and creates a 'sparkly', crystalline effect because of the pattern. <3  Also, the ring on the outside is a dark brown, not the usual, harsh black.



Comfort:  9.5/10  I believe these are originally produced by Vassen, whose lenses I always find comfy: these are super comfy, though.

(Awww yeah: bathroom lighting)

All in all, these are not my favourite lenses ever.  They are also not my least favourite lens: to me, they are quite average. *shrug*  The very concept of them + their cute pattern is appealing, though.  Up close, however, not everyone can tell what is on the lens. Someone asked me "...is that a ghost?" when viewing my lenses from a foot away. Haha  ~~  So yeah- these are cute and enlarging, but are not opaque/light enough in colour for my tastes.

And here are the extra pics, as usual: One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, and Nine.

Quick Update + Explanation

I am so sorry I've not been keeping up much on Blogger. D:  I was already behind on updates/commenting, but midweek, my mom got in a car accident, and, of course, all thoughts of blogging and whatever else flew out the window.

I was so antsy + anxious to get home and see her. <3

So yeah, I got home on Friday, and finally got to hang out + take care of my mommy a bit. :]  Luckily she's fine, and is at home having a grand old time resting.  ((Fun fact: my mother on muscle-relaxants = kind of adorable.))

TL;DR  I am a lazy blogger, but a family emergency made me even 'lazier'.

Review: GnG Carnival 070 ("White Manson")

Look! Costume lenses! :DD  (Bet you guys thought I'd never review another pair after the 'Purple Cat Eyes' debacle.)  These little pretties were kindly sponsored by the amazing Kiwiberry1's Collection. (I reviewed their service, here.)

((Want to know what these look like on light eyes? Check out Anna's review of these lenses at Fenua Beauté~!))

(This is what I looked like on Halloween~)

Enlargement: 8/10  At 14.5 mm, the Carnival 070 lenses are not super enlarging.

Colour/Design: 9.5/10  You have seen these lenses before. I know you have: it's one of the best known costume lens designs available. That being said, it's helpful to see real pictures of them being worn.  This way you can see that the white is a very basic white: not blue-tinged or any such thing.  The coverage of your natural colour is also amazing: I even catch a glimpse of white in the corner of my vision sometimes.


Comfort: 9/10  Usually, I rather expect costume lenses to be uncomfortable (they have more pigment or opacity, and are thicker than regular colour lenses).  These, however? These are delightfully comfy~.

(I tried doing makeup for the first time, like, ever. :/ )

I've come to learn that having high expectations for costume lenses tends to lead to disappointment.  Why? Because usually, the stock pictures' colours are not the most accurate.  However, in this case, the stock picture of these very popular lenses was accurate. <3 They're great.

And here are the extra pics, as usual: One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, and Nine.
