Recently I decided to venture into vast world lash brands, and see what a step up from drugstore had to offer my life. I’ve always been an Ardell girl, and Wispies and Demi Wispies have been a staple in my kit since I started freelancing. I find that they look good on anyone, and give a Read more about House of Lashes Haul: PART 1 – Premium Luxe Lashes[…]
Let’s talk about bridal makeup, and more importantly the trial (or trials, depending on how many looks you want to see) leading up to your big day. I am a firm believer that your wedding day makeup should be essentially you, but enhanced. I highly recommend choosing a more classic beauty look, as opposed to Read more about 10 Tips To Help You Prepare For Your Bridal Makeup Trial[…]
Long time no see, blog! Holiday season has been busy – I have been eating, and drinking, and being plenty merry. I tried to update my Instagram/Facebook as much as I could, but alas, I have been majorly slacking. I won’t go on about any “new year, new me” BS, and how I swear I’ll Read more about Bleach alternatives! How-to strip Pravana Vivids from your hair![…]
I’m a little late to the game, but I recently purchased a few of NYX Cosmetics’ Liquid Suede Lip Creams and I thought I would give them a little review. The selection was pretty bare, which usually seems to be the case with NYX and Ulta if you don’t catch the newness as soon as it Read more about NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Lip Cream Review[…]
Welcome to my first blog post! Yayyy! I’m super pumped to get started, and I will try my hardest to update as regularly as possible. Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy the ride :]
To commemorate my first post, I’m going to review a contact lens order I placed with Pinky Paradise recently! This is my first-ever order of SFX contact lenses, and I’m really excited to have found Pinky Paradise, otherwise I probably wouldn’t have been able to order as many different pairs as I did. Many of the sites I visited priced their lenses around $30 per lens; however, PP’s lenses are on average $20 a pair. Plus, each pair of contacts you order comes with a cute little macaroon or animal lens case. I eat that shit up.
Right now Pinky Paradise is doing a promotion if you order $130 or more in contacts, they’ll express ship them to you! I, of course, am impatient and excessive…so, I bought 6 pairs of different colors and types of lenses with my prescription: EOS Bubble Green, EOS Bubble Pink, EOS New Adult Red, Geo Magic Black, Princess Pinky Cosplay Corunus, and Princess Pinky Cosplay White Mesh.
It was a little disappointing to see that most of the Halloween contacts didn’t come with prescription, but they do have a lot of different styles of cosplay circle lenses that have some interesting effects.
I was so excited to see them sitting on my doorstep, that I immediately ran out to Walgreens at 11PM to buy contact solution to clean them. Because I’m impulsive, and don’t read labels (…or instructions, or prices), I ended up buying a Benzoyl Peroxide disinfectant soak. After letting them soak over night, and not realizing my mistake…I proceeded to stick one of them in my eyes, resulting in lots of tears and a burning eyeball for the rest of the day. I had to wash off a Halloween makeup that I spent two hours crafting, because I couldn’t see and my eye wouldn’t stop leaking. This is my life. I don’t read instructions.
In anycase, now that they’re soaking in regular contact solution, they were very easy to insert. The only problem I had was with the Princess Pink Cosplay Corunus lenses – they’re very flexible and crumply, and fold into a bunch if you touch them even slightly. I had to tilt my head up to the ceiling and gently hold it over my eye and wait for it to fall in to get them to go in my eye.
Let’s get started!
