Big alluring sparkling eyes!

Sponsored Advertorial

Heya!

Are you looking for contact lenses that are :

  1. Comfortable
  2. Safe to wear
  3. Affordable
  4. Coloured

Are you facing issues with contact lenses you’ve gotten from optical shops like me?

I have personally tried Fresh Kon and Maxi lenses are boy, do they both suck! 😦

Plus, they are not cheap to begin with. 20+ monthly and some are even jacked up to 30+/month!

Contact lenses have become daily essentials for ladies (and even men!) who want to achieve big sparkling eyes! Whether you have minimal eye make-up or heavy eye make-up, one would finds it difficult to live without contact lenses.

Lo and behold!

Presenting to you an online shop that provides quality lenses as well as customer service! How often do you get both of that together?

Well now you can!

GEO CONTACT LENS is an online shop providing safe and reliable contact lenses that are affordable yet do not compromise on its quality!

I have been wearing contact lenses from them and so far, no problems faced! Except for occasional dryness (like when I stare at something for a long time with minimal blinking) which is fairly common. Other than that, totally NO PROBLEMS AT ALL!!!

As you can see, I’ve been sponsored with 7 great pairs of geo lenses! They are by far the most comfortable I’ve worn compared to other brands you see online such as I.Fairy/Barbie etc.

Plus, they do not have ridiculous diameters for their lenses.

I totally loathe the ‘Furby lookalike’ contact lens which makes one look damn scary and weird. It’s not appealing anymore in that way.

For me, I would choose the normal 14.2mm to 15mm. That would be sufficient for my eye shape and area size.

So it actually differs individually.

GEO CONTACT LENS also provides free contact lens casing for EVERY pair you order! I am always forgetting to bring them along whenever I have sleep overs so extra cases definitely come in handy! 🙂

GEO CONTACT LENS also goes the extra mile to provide excellent customer services as evident in their website – Info on lens care as well as tracking your orders via postage services.

Most importantly, these pretty geo lens are 100% authentic and every bottle comes with the authentication sticker and code where you can verify on GEO CONTACT LENS as well!

Simple and hassle-free!

I’m wearing GEO Angel Blue (Magic Color) – 14.2mm | Yearly Disposable | 38% Water Content

As you can see, the size of the lenses perfectly accommodates to the size of my eyes. Everything looks proportionate.

The 2nd picture was taken before I headed out to celebrate our 5th Anniversary! So I made the effort to doll up a little more, with the effects of smokey-eyes. Usually, I don’t apply eye shadows because I think they are too ‘over’.

My eye make up regime is very simplistic and minimal – eyeliners, falsies (not thick ones but natural looking), white shimmery eyeliner to be applied at the tear ducts for bigger and more sparkling eyes. I used to apply mascara on my lower lashes but not anymore. And of course, concealers for my terrible dark circles. 😦

So if you are looking for pocket-friendly contact lens that are yearly disposable (but for hygiene reasons – recommended to dispose 6-9mths) and are 100% AUTHENTIC AND SAFE TO WEAR, check out GEO CONTACT LENS today!!! 🙂

Psst, stay tuned for my updates on our 5th Anniversary celebration! 🙂

TGIF and Food Galore!

Finally… The day we have all been waiting for – FRIDAY!

I find it so amusing that our daily mood is greatly affected by the day of the week. It automatically gets elevated nearing the weekend.

I hate working life seriously but neither do I like a student’s life.

Did some DIY manicure on my own and it didn’t turn out as disastrous as before. I mixed gelish and normal nail polishes together since I’ve read many reviews that they do work together to help preserve the ‘life’ of the nail polishes.

Removed my previous gelish nails and applied the gelish base coat, normal polish (2 coats) and gelish top coat.

Not sure what brand this is but I reckon it must be from SaSa?

Used the UV lamp behind to dry the gelish nails. Am thinking of getting a LED lamp because the UV rays hurt my nails. Tried some LED lamps before at nail palours, some did sting while some worked perfectly fine for me. And it’s perfect for impatient people like me! It only takes 30secs to dry the nails while UV lamp requires approx 2 mins? Sometimes even longer.

My nails are soft and brittle, not sure if it’s due to genes or poor nutrition and that is why it would hurt under UV lamp.

But LED lamps are cheap as well. Heard that it costs around $300+?

I love art and crafts and designing, basically. But painting on your own nails ain’t easy, especially when you have a retarded left hand. I have shaky hands too. 😦

Used the Acetone remover behind to remove the previous set of gelish nails, together with the aluminium foils behind.

Have done up a step-by-step tutorial on removing gelish nails. You may read it here if keen 🙂

I got the Gelish Harmony nail polishes from D.Y.O.N International at Scape. They have a facebook page too, you may check it out for updates 🙂

I am not paid/sponsored for the nail polishes. Bought them on my own, together with another pinkish-red gelish nail polish and costs $80 in total. Gelish nail polishes ain’t cheap you know. I’ve also gotten my China Glaze nail polishes from DYON too 🙂 Sold quite cheaply. 3 for $20 🙂

Regretted painting the glitter snow globe over because it was kinda dried up and was clumpy. 😦

This was 2 days after application. You may not be able to tell that it has uneven clumpy areas but sadly, they do 😦

By the way, these are my real nails 🙂

The sides of some nails have chipped, but so far so good.

So yes, I guess getting gelish and normal nail polishes applied together do work. But may not turn out as effective and long-lasting than using all gelish nail polishes.

Had Ajisen Ramen for lunch yesterday and Bak Kut Teh for dinner on the same day.

I’m not really a fan of Ramen because firstly, being a small eater, I usually can’t finish the noodles. I managed to finish about 2/3 yesterday and that was when I’d forced myself to gobbled some more noodles more than I could take. Was extremely stuffed after that. Secondly, Ramen noodles is the same as maggie noodles to me.

But, I do love their soups. I am a soupy kind of person! 🙂

Bf and I had these for dinner yesterday and we ordered one too many dishes. Felt that the cereal chicken was quite pricey – $8 for small and $10 for big portions.

We couldn’t finish much of the dishes.

The bak kut teh soup was so-so only. I preferred those with the pepperish taste.

Saw on a food variety show that bak kut teh with the pepperish taste is the Singaporean style while the non-pepperish with a twist of sweetness taste originates from Malaysia.

I guess I must be a true blue Singaporean then 🙂

We patronised the shop at :

Last Saturday, bf and I decided to have our very own home-cooked steamboat for dinner 🙂

Steamboat is easy because there’s not much oil involved, not much cooking to be done (I suck at this!) and it’s rather healthy too! 🙂

Plus, having steamboat for 2 eases the competition of food-snatching!

Bf went to tabao Fried rice as well because he said that rice is essential. :S

A lazy Sunday tea break at Zam Zam.

No prata was available – totally loathe it when this happens because I usually get pratas if I’m dining at Muslim stores. Unless I’m really famished then I would order fried noodles.

Am not really a fan of other races’ food as well – but no offence, I’m not racist. 🙂

Just that most of their food are spicy and I can’t take spicy well for nuts.

I love how the photo frame is so apt! 🙂

Because I didn’t have the mood to blog recently, the following pictures are post-dated.

Birthday presents for mom 🙂

Almost everything was Spicy at Muthu’s Curry.

As mentioned, I’m not a fan of other races’ food and spicy food, so I didn’t really ate much and enjoy the food 😦

This was meant to celebrate my mom’s bday on the actual day. Not to be confused with the upcoming pictures below because sis and I decided to throw her a surprise bday celebration together with her siblings – my uncles and aunties on Sunday.

Mom was a little upset because we usually celebrate bdays on weekends rather than weekdays due to work and time-constraint. However, my family went on a vacation to Aussie the week before the actual bday, so we couldn’t celebrate an advanced bday for her. But did so on 2 days – actual weekday and a belated one on Sunday.

The surprise birthday dinner was held at Pu Tien.

Attended the dinner with a partially-filled tummy, so I didn’t eat much either.

Bro-in-law said that Pu Tien is famous for their mee sua which was not the usual thin noodles. Tasted so-so only. I’d preferred it to be saltier and richer in flavour. A little to bland for me.

The fried yam pieces on the 2nd last picture was my favourite because it was coated with honey and even though it’s wet, the crisp was still well-tasted! 🙂

Didn’t try the bittergourd. I am so not a fan of it!

We bought a bday cake from Rive Gauche!

It was quite nice and had crispy biscuit-like parts! Totally different from the usual bday cakes we have.

Tomorrow marks a very significant and meaningful date for us.

It’s our 5th year anniversary! ❤

We’ve made plans and even booked reservations at a romantic dining area.

I’ve even planned on what to wear which has to accommodate 2 different locations. 🙂

I can’t wait for tomorrow, I’m sure it would be filled with lots of love and laughters! ❤ 😀

Hope the updates are sufficient to compensate whatever lack of posts and personal touch I have on this blog! 🙂

Trying to act cute, act younger, act feminine.

I hardly cam-whore and act cute la, so give me the benefit of the doubt, will you? 😉

By the way, I will be sharing with you guys on where I get my contact lenses from. I’m extremely disappointed with the ones I have gotten from optical shops – Freshkon and Maxi lens. Encore ones are still alright. But the 1st 2 really cannot make it! :@

The $$ I spent on contact lenses I got from optical shops could have been spent better elsewhere or stock up from online shops!

So if you want comfortable lens that are priced reasonably that are safe for usage as well as to allure and enhance your sparkling eyes that melt hearts, do stay tuned! 🙂

Love,

1-Day Acuvue Define Vivid Style Contact Lenses

First and foremost, I must apologise for those who have been keeping a lookout for my beauty posts and reviews because I must admit I haven’t been writing up much on beauty-related stuffs.

As my sis is working in an optical shop in the marketing dept, I’d got the opportunity to try out 1-Day Acuvue Define contact lenses! I was given a choice to choose 2 different types of contact lenses and I chose Vivid Style and Natural Shine.

I must also disclaim that this is NOT a paid/sponsored advertorial but based on my own personal experience. If you have been following my blog and observant enough, I would clearly state that an advertorial is an advertorial at the start of the entry post. But nevertheless, even sponsored/paid advertorials are based on my own personal experience and opinions and are in no way biased or prejudiced. I believe in providing constructive and useful reviews and feedback on the products because I understand how important reviews are when an interested and potential buyer is on the lookout for them – simply because I am just like you are! Shop smart because money is difficult to earn. Learn and read more about products that you’re gonna spend your hard-earned money on and spend only if you think it’s worth buying.

Okay, let’s not digress any further. I shall leave my naggings for another day (signs of ageing) 😦

And this is me wearing the vivid style lenses.

 

Tied up hair 🙂

A close up :

A comparison of the size of an eye wearing the lens and the other without :

For the benefit of others who are interested in 1-Day Acuvue’s daily lenses, here are some of style which they have to offer.

 

I remember my 1st pair of contact lenses were coloured ones from Fresh Kon and were almost the same colour as Vivid Style from Acuvue. Fresh Kon ones are monthly disposable type compared to the 1-day Acuvue which is daily disposable.

I decided that monthly ones from optical shop are rather expensive compared to those yearly ones. Do note that yearly ones are encouraged to be worn 6 to 9 months only and extra hygiene and care has to be taken because dirt and residue are more likely to remain.

For my saline solution, I use Bausch and Lomb because firstly, they are cheap! Mostly sold in twin or triple packs in Watsons and so far, so good. No problems. I use those specially for sensitive eyes too.

My review on 1-Day Acuvue Vivid Style :

Pros –

  1. Colour-wise, very simple and appropriate for work or formal events. I have come across girls who stick on to lenses which gives a more natural look rather than those coloured ones.
  2. Creates bigger looking eyes

Cons –

  1. I’m not sure if I’ve sensitive eyes or what, but some contact lenses do sting. However, if I were to rewash them again, sometimes they become perfectly fine again. I’m talking about newly opened lenses and wearing them on my first attempt.
  2. I find them quite drying after awhile. Usually at work, I will stick to my specs, because you know how easily your eyes tire out after staring at the computer screen for few hours and what’s more, my job as a Legal Counsel requires me to read alot because I have to vet and review legal contracts and conduct legal researches as well. I would usually print out the documents so as to reduce the time spent staring at the computer screen.

Honestly, I expected much more from contact lenses sold in optical shops, because they are supposed to be safer and provide more comfort, right? However, I am a little disappointed with this 1-Day Acuvue lenses, but I will give it another shot soon to provide a more holistic view since I mentioned that they are alright after cleansing. I will try on another fresh new pair again to see how it goes. Hopefully, they don’t pose anymore discomfort and drying.

Also, I don’t usually put eye drops because of a silly reason – it causes my falsies to drop because the adhesive from the glue doesn’t stick anymore. Hence, I try to reduce the number of times wearing contact lenses and restrict to times when I need them – After work if I’m going out, i’ll bring a pair along. I’ve a bottle of saline solution in my office drawer, so it’s okay. Either that, mainly reserved for TGIFs since we get to dress down and wearing a pair of specs just ruin my whole image. HAHA. Over the weekends, definitely contact lenses if I head out.

Another brand of contact lenses which turned out to be a huge disappointment is Maxi lenses. Most optical shops that carry Maxi lens offers a promotion of ‘Buy 2 get 2 Free’ which is extremely tempting, especially for those who are frequent users. I bought 4 pairs in total as a result, violet, blue, grey and brown (these are my usual colours). However, the 1st pair I worn caused much discomfort as well and subsequently, so did the 2nd pair. I’m still left with 2 brand new pairs lying on my make up table. 😦

The most comfortable ones are ironically the ones I get online such as Geo lens. If you are looking to achieve bigger eyes, my advice is to get those with black outer rings as they enlarge the pupils and are more prominent.

Also, it’s really gross to see girls with super artificially big eyes. It’s like they are almost covering the whole of their eye-white? Eew. Hence, the best bet is to get something around 14-15mm depending on the size of your eye sockets. I’ve tried 16 to 18mm ones and they just look really really weird. You don’t wanna look like Furby don’t you? Currently, my contact lenses are about 14.2mm and they look just fine on me.

Sometimes, they saying of ‘Less is more’ is true and applies to beauty as well, like minimalising the amount of make up on your face instead of piling tonnes resulting in a geisha or tranny look.

Hopefully my review on 1-Day Acuvue Define (Vivid Style) is of some help to you.

Thanks for reading! 😀

Psst, HAPPY MID-WEEK! 🙂

And Happy 58th love ❤

xoxo,

Jean

 

Beauty Review – Want big dolly eyes that sparkle?

Sponsored Advertorial

Geo lens contacts were one of the first few brands I’d tried when I’d first started to wear cosmetic contact lenses! I’m sure they were pretty much everyone’s as well.

Shipped in directly from Korea, GEO Contact Lens is the official distributor of GEO Cosmetic Color Lenses. The prices and quality of the contact lenses are strongly backed up by GEO Medical Co.,Ltd.

GEO Contact Lens has generously sponsored me with 2 pretty pairs of Geo lenses and of which, I will be reviewing 1 pair today! 🙂

I’m wearing GEO Angel Violet (Magic Color)! 🙂

Personally, the colours I would wear for contact lenses are black, grey, blue, pink and violet. I’m not a fan of red, green or other weirdass colours.

The trick to getting bigger dolly eyes is to choose those with a black outer ring, not only does it help to enlarge your pupils, they magically enhance your eyes too, giving them an alluring sparkling look!

In addition, other than proper care and usage of the lens, when choosing contact lenses, try not to get those with extra large diameters like 18mm. I think 16 to 18mm is rather big. I’d tried them on before and it just adds on to the artificiality! Whenever I see girls with overwhelming sizes of contact lens, it’s not only a major turn off but it kinda reminds me of Furby?! That scary looking toy… 😦

The one I’m wearing is only 14.2mm but it looks perfectly fine on me, not too big not too small. Most importantly, it fits the size of your eyes and eye sockets.

Another disadvantage in choosing a over-sized contact lens is that you might feel a ‘cutting’ feeling under your top eyelids. Based on my personal experience, that’s because not all eyes can withstand such huge diameters of the contact lenses. I’ve encountered this before and trust me, it was really a waste of money when you can’t continue wearing them anymore and have to discard a new pair! 😦

So thank god, Geo lens series range from 14.2mm – 15.0mm! And that’s another reason why you should shop with GEO Contact Lens ! 🙂

Last but not least, and of utmost importance, all GEO contact lenses from GEO Contact Lens comes with an anti-fake sticker which provides a 20 digit codes and you are able to check the authenticity of your lenses with GEO Medical Co.,Ltd ● GEO Authentication.

With more than 14,000 fans on their Facebook fan page, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t start shopping with GEO Contact Lens today!!! 🙂

For another review of the other pretty pair of Geo lenses, do stay tuned! ❤

Sponsored Beauty Review – ISZO CIRCLE LENS

Are you looking for comfortable, affordable and long lasting contact lenses? Do you find contact lenses sold at optical shops too expensive and only carry daily/monthly usages?

Then you definitely have to visit ISZO CIRCLE LENS !!! 🙂

ISZO CIRCLE LENS offers a wide variety of coloured contact lens which are guaranteed safe for usage.

I’m wearing Popc Light Blue (Candy Magic King) in this picture 🙂

I bought some Maxi lenses on an urgent basis because I ran out of lenses (actually because I tore 1 side of my last pair 😦 ) from the optical shop and honestly, the lenses from ISZO CIRCLE LENS is so much more comfortable! I wore the brown one from Maxi lens and brought this Popc Light blue lens from ISZO CIRCLE LENS to my recent Genting trip and the former caused me so much discomfort as well as dryness and blurriness of my vision. So I’d decided to switch to the Popc Light Blue lenses for the rest of my Genting trip 🙂 It even works fine with strong cold winds when I was outdoors at Genting Highlands! 😀

Like you, I am skeptical of wearing contact lenses sold online especially after the banning of online sales by the Health Sciences Authority of Singapore due to fake contact lenses sold online, but seriously lenses from ISZO CIRCLE LENS is really comfortable and gentle on the eyes!

Of course, some of eyes who have smaller eyes are not suited to wear lenses that are too big in diameter so besides checking on the water content, do take note of the diameter as well. My advice is not to get too big ones such as 18mm as you would look like Furby and a little gross with such big eyes that cover almost the whole of the white eye! :S

I have also been sponsored with another brown pair i.Fairy Hanabi Brown by ISZO CIRCLE LENS but havent gotten the chance to wear them yet 🙂 Will upload pics of them when I get to wear them 😀

ISZO CIRCLE LENS is not a blogshop/online shop based in Singapore but in Malaysia, so they do not violate any laws/regulations by the HSA in Singapore. Rest assured when you purchase from them! 🙂

They carry other brands of contact lenses such as

as well! 🙂

What’s more, ISZO CIRCLE LENS is also giving out these cute contact lens casings!!!

Check out mine!

TOO CUTE TO RESIST! 😀
