EOS New Adult Brown Sponsored Review

My review of the EOS New Adult Brown contact lenses 
Kindly sponsored by Lens Village

Diameter : 14.5 mm

Base Curve : 8.60mm
Water Content : 38~42%
Life Span : 1 Year


You might have noticed that I'm an avid user of Tsubasa's Bambi Series lenses. They are my daily go-to lense. But I thought I would try out a slightly different style, I wanted to try something that doesn't scream out cute!

I chose these lenses because I'm really into the mode-kei style now! I am absolutely in love with Murua and Momoko Ogihara. I really wanted to recreate that look so I was excited to try out these lenses!

Below are two mode looks I created with these lenses!

Look 1: Murua - Sexy Mode

Eye Make up - very dark eyeshadow and thick top and bottom lashes.

I stacked two lashes from Decolog Who's Rich for the top lashes. The bottom lashes are Diamond Lash Natural eye from the purple tray.

The dark eye make up look makes these contact lenses stand out that extra bit more ^__- 

Kept my eyebrows light and lips nude to balance out the heavy eye make up!

Heavy contouring on nose and cheeks which turns out great in photos ^__^

I chose Candy Doll's carrot orange for my cheek colour, which I think works really well with this look!

Look 2: Emoda - Elegant Mode

This is a similar look but I didn't contour as heavily as before.
The key difference here is the hair style which for this look is all about the soft curls. 


Even though the eye make up is almost the same as Look 1, for some reason the photos turned out looking cute... hahahah =__=

Comfort:
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤/5

These lenses were definitely not the most comfortable pair I've ever worn in my life.

 They didn't irritate my eyes or anything, but there were moments where they were a little bit dry or uncomfortable.
But generally, no issues on comfort!

Design:
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤/5
These lenses are definitely not natural looking lenses for everyday wear but they are perfect for achieving the sexy mode look!


Enlargement:


❤ ❤ ❤/5


The enlargement effect is not pronounced with these lenses but I like it that way. Too much enlargement effect tends to make you look more cute, rather than the sexy mature look I was going for today ^__^

Overall I am very happy with these lenses, and highly recommend these lenses if you want to achieve the mode look! Love the colour pigmentation and how it lightens up your eye colour, especially if you originally have dark eye colour like mine!


Lens Village was also kind enough to sponsor me two pairs of lenses to give away so don't forget to join!

Hope you all found the review useful! What do you think of my new look? I'm in the process of changing my entire wardrobe and I can't wait to show you guys my new OOTDs =)

Fashion Coordinates ~ Mode-kei ON

Super long fashion coordinate post! Most items are from my online shop Sakura Dreams =)

First of all~ quick update on my life! Really loved my casual job as a make up artist and hair stylist at the photography studio! Met a lot of awesome clients and also did hair styling for two photo shoot sessions with professional models and photographer! Slowly building up my portfolio and hopefully will become a freelance make up artists for bridals or photo shoots.

Also starting a new full time job after Easter so yay, can't wait to start earning money again and therefore more shopping and holidays =P

Will be numbering the coordinates for easier commenting =)

If you have been following me on Twitter, you should probably know by now I'm really into Mode style now esp Shibuya 109 brands - Murua and Emoda! I swear my favourite blogger Cheesie have such a huge influence on my fashion and make up style >__<

Just ordered more items from Emoda and Murua and I absolutely cannot wait for them! My excuse is.. I need more office clothes for my new job >__< Since I'm such a shopaholic I end up spending more money than I actually earn >.< Ah well...

Trying to move on from Liz Lisa but I really cannot resist some of the adorable pieces from the new 2012 Love Pasterine collection! 

So I got this piece for myself! 
Outfit #3

Absolutely in love with this dress!! I have a lot of the new pieces from Liz Lisa 2012 Love Pasterine in my shop and still many more to add over the next few days (assuming I'm not going to slack off >.<)

And of course have to get myself the W❤C Tora Ribbon Sweater which I just adore! The purple one was sold out before it even finished restocking and I think even the cream one is sold out now. Only grey one left >__<

This sweater is definitely my favourite piece from W❤C so far!
