Weekend Recap and Colored Contact Lenses

Hi Bellas,


How was your weekend? It's rough being back at work after a 4 day weekend. It was so nice to stay at home, chill, sleep in, eat and spend time with the boyfriend. Thanksgiving dinner went well...I made way too much food! Everything turned out pretty good. I didn't make a turkey this year so I got to skip out on the hard part, he he. I didn't do Black Friday sales but I did check out the outlets and picked up a Bobbi Brown undereye brightener from the CCO. That's about all I bought! I've been on a budget lately, trying to save up for next year's big collections and the Makeup Show in Miami in February.

This weekend I did makeup for a boudoir shoot. It went really well. The bride to be looked just like Kim Kardashian with her smokey eyes...but better! If you're reading, hi Mina!

Anywho, back to the post...

I finally had the opportunity to try out the popular circle lenses all of my fellow asian beauty bloggers have been raving out. Apparently this kind of contact makes your eye look larger by increasing the size of the iris.


I chose Geo Angel Color in Brown. At first, by looking at the lenses I was a little nervous because they looked really dramatic in the case.







But when I wore them, I noticed that it kind of blended in with my eye. Not too shabby.




You can tell the irises are definitely bigger. The contacts give me a doll like feel.




I could totally do Ulzang with these babies! LOL that's a shout out to my Asian Beauty Bloggers from back in the day when we did the Ulzang challenge.




Changing contact colors is a great way to try a new look. It adds a certain mystique to your everyday style.



I received these contacts from http://sglenses.blogspot.com/. The blogger's page is actually an online catalogue. There are many styles to come from. They also carry various prescriptions. Each pair is about $14, and you'll need to pay for shipping.



To order, email x_kosmo_x@hotmail.com.



Till next time, Ciao Bellas!

How long do they last? Or more like, how long can you keep using them until it's best that you stop. I want a pair!

Hi there-I love your make up here!!

LadyJane said...

They do give you that doe eye effect. Every time I see them in pictures, it takes me awhile to realize why their eyes look bigger than usual. Makes me think that these lenses seem to be worth the hype. I'll be sure to get my hands on them one day. Thanks for sharing Ren.

The boudoir session was great, and my photographer said he loved my eye makeup.
