G&G Gothic 3 Tone Hazel


I got some new circle lenses in the post a few weeks ago from PinkyParadise called Gothic 3 Tone in the colour hazel and the brand is G&G otherwise known as Dueba or Barbie. There a bit different from the usual type of lenses I go for.

Here's the product information ~

Diameter: 14.5mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Type: 1 Year Disposal

Considering there 14.5mm which is quite large they don't appear too big on the eye because the outer ring is a dark grey instead of being black, also because they are a fairly thin type of lens. There extremely comfortable and don't dry my eyes out at all, even after the 8 hour recommended time

Here's what they look like on me ~

They blend in really well with my natural eye colour because of the 3 tone quality. I actually think that the main reason they look so natural on my eyes is because the colour of my eyes and the contacts are almost the same haha. My natural eye colour is a light-ish green.
Not even my family has noticed i'm wearing any circle lenses which I guess would make these pretty ideal for work ^-^

So comfortable even after 8 hours I don't feel them at all.
Love 3 tone lenses in general but these look really super nice on my natural eye colour.
Even though there 14.5mm they don't feel 'big' or look it that much in person however in pictures it gives off a nice doll eye.

Overall I really love these lenses, I think I will use them for natural make up days or possibly when i'm at work if i'm not feeling too lazy haha.

Oh also I made a tumblr awhile ago feel free to follow me you like :)

Etude House Precious Mineral Sun BB Cream


I just had this arrive in the mail today!! ^-^
I was running low on the BB Cream I've been using and after hearing how the Etude House BB Creams for suitable for fair skin I thought why not give it a go.

Here's what it looks like in and out of the box, it has a sponge top application for a natural finish.

Since my previous BB Cream was a summer based one as well ( Skin79 Triple Functions ) I thought I would compare them to see if there were any difference, just by product description there pretty similar

So on the left is how they look after being squeezed out, I'd say Etude House looks like the lightest in this form. I would say the Skin 79 BB Cream is a lot cleaner and easy to use because it has a pump function whereas the Etude House one is in a squeezy tube.
I left them for awhile to oxerdize and this is how they looked. Pretty much the same right?? Well there's only a slight difference of Skin79 has a faint yellow undertone and Etude House having a faint pink undertone, also consistency wise Skin79 is a lot thicker so offers really good coverage but you can't really build it up or it will get cakey -.- the Etude House one however may only offer medium coverage its easy to build up without looking cakey and the sponge applicator really helps to give a nice even finish.

I really like both but for the smooth application I'd go with Etude House BB Cream for now, I'll just wait to see how long it lasts me to see if it was entirely worth the price >.<
