Photographic snaps from Hong Kong, China and Taiwan~

Yayyy so I get to do a photographic post tonight~ I got to see so many great views. There’s a lot more but here are just some snaps~ I hope you all enjoy sightseeing just as much as I do! I could only bring along with me minimum gear but I think they served me well~ The main things i brought along were my camera body of course, my 14mm f2.8 and 24-70mm f2.8. If you’re just starting out on photography and thinking about doing so landscapes overseas your lifesavers are most definitely a circular polariser and a tripod : )

So let me know what you think! Also, let me know where you’d love to go for a trip and what’s a sight you’re dying to see!

Question Response to Blame The Store:

 

  • Do you love Korean artists? If yes, name your favourite one. If no, name your favourite artist and where he/she/they come(s) from.

– Yep! SURE DO!!!! CN BLUEEEEE CAN’T WAITTT TO GO SEE THEM SOON!!! Brian Joo, Shinhwa, SJ, Block B, SNSD, SS501… List goes on.. 

  • Do you have a collection of something(s)? If yes, name your collection(s).

– Snoopy plushies from Maccaas… LOL >_<, does makeup count?

  • If you have to go to a high end mall in the weekend with your boyfriend, what will your outfit look like?

– Oh wow umm since i’m single… eating pants and a loose tee. LOL JOKES. I think i’ve some obsession over mixing something fancy/ street wear together there’s something about it that just looks so great, approachable but not overdone at the same time. So maybe an awesome kickass cap or beanie with a classy dress, cardi and sporty heels.

  • What do you think about beauty boxes? Name your favourite one.

-I’ve never signed up to a beauty box before but now that you ask I really should!!! I really like Ipsy and Glossy Box. Ipsy is pretty affordable and curated by lots of our youtube celebs that we all love. They recommend affordable stuff for the general public. I really like Glossy Box because of the variety and range of products they’re associated with. Apparently they give away some asian branded products as well which is a nice change. Its a bit pricier but the packaging is fantastic!!!

  • What’s your favourite snack?

-Hmm I don’t really snack but I like Mocchi and hot food xD

  • Which one do you prefer, online shopping or offline shopping? Why?

-Online shopping because i’m a bit of an introvert… lolol!!!! Nah, it’s just there’s not that many awesome+ affordable shops around sydney… And if you’re shopping in Hong Kong, the clerks try and recommend you almost everything that you feel a bit intimidated. That’s something I don’t like the feeling of -having someone glaring at me while i’m just looking around. I like shopping in peace! Though it’s not always awesome when you can’t try the fitting or see the material of the clothes you’re buying : <!

  • Tell me 3 of your favourite music.

– I like Christian songs, Pop and melodic Vkei.~ 😀

Ms Fynale Kiwi Green contact lenses review!!!

Hi everyone!!! So today was the second time I wore the Ms Fynale (Korean brand) Kiwi Green contacts in 14.5mm from the Kiwi series. These were kindly supplied by FashionEye and as usual, I’ll put her link below if you’re interested in purchasing these lenses. And yep~ IT REALLY DOES LOOK QUITE LIKE A KIWI FRUIT~_~

ImageWater content is 42% with a base curve of 8.6mm. I really quite liked the design. I thought it looked unique without being too crazy- as in overly cheesy in design and it also steered away from being overly simple. The black rim is really thick so it gives the dolly eye look- It’s not all that natural but you’d get away with wearing it everyday. (IMO) Being a 14.5mm, these were quite comfy for me. Not the most comfortable I’ve worn but it wasn’t annoying or irritating either.

Pros: Because of it’s thick black rim it gave a very nice enlarging effect~ I also wore these for about 9 hours and it didn’t feel really dry until 6 hours after… (really shouldn’t but i forgot to bring my lens case T^T). I really enjoyed the look of these lenses as mentioned above- and the dashes around the iris area really accentuate your iris~

Cons: I don’t really have any cons against these lenses except that it wasn’t all too vibrant on my dark brown eyes. The colour is quite visible in sunlight but turns to dark green when indoors. Though, that’s usually expected with having dark eyes~ If you have light blue or green eyes then well, these would look freaking awesome and bright on you!!! *so much love*~

So here’s a photo of the lenses and then of me wearing them along with E-heart lashes in Naturally~

I really quite like these lenses~ I might buy them again in different colours xD!!! Thankyou for reading with me up to here!!! xx

Take Care!

Beuberry Natural Hazel 16mm Lens Review~

Harro everyone~ my eye is a better now so today I decided to rock these korean lenses: Beuberry in Natural Hazel 16mm. The lenses were kindly provided by FashionEye My and I will link you to her page below if you want to purchase!

Image

As you can see, its 55% water content and 8.6 for base curve.

I probably have more cons than pros for these lenses. The main reason is because my eye slit/ face is actually really small. I kinda looked a little bit like “O_O” wearing these lenses because it left me with barely any eye white!!! So please keep those factors in mind. This review is only from my personal experience of these lens. I’ve read good reviews about these lenses but perhaps 16mm isn’t for me. I wish I could wear them all day long because they’re seriously pretty and natural >W<”

Pros: I really like the design and colour gradient of the lenses! It looks really natural and people don’t really notice that you’re wearing it. It also gives really good enlargement- and it makes you look really dolly and innocent too LOL. ❤ I really kinda liked the “O_O”-ness it gave me- unfortunately it dried up too fast for my liking. It’s pretty suitable for people with brown or black eyes but it would indeed look more unnatural on someone with blue or green eyes. These lenses would be perfect for the girl or guy who has a lot of eyewhite and want more coverage for those areas. – Or if you’re a cosplayer, and is looking for that massive dolly eye look. :)!

Cons: The lens felt a little bit thick for a 16mm. It was hard to get into my eye (well obviously because of its size) and it felt a tad dryer than most lenses i’ve used. But this has also been the same problem with other 16mm that i’ve tried. Due to the fact that my natural eye is about 14mm in diameter, I didn’t have all too much eyewhite to work with anyway >W< So these lenses made my eye dry up really fast and I had to take them out after about 4 hours.

So if you’re like me and don’t have all that much eyewhite to work with, 16mm for a all-day-out event is not for you. Stick with 14.5 or 15mm. But! If you’re a person with a large eye slit and much eyewhite then this does wonders for enlargement and its really pretty!!! xD I’d imagine the comfort level for you would be close to me wearing a geo Angel lens at 14.5mm. Fairly comfortable, but still will feel dry if you wear it for more than 6 hours~ So please keep your eyedrops! I really wish they made this in 15mm or 14.8!!!

Here below is a pic of the lenses followed by me wearing the lenses~

Image

Image

Would I wear it again? Yep. And I would wear them if I were to cosplay or be in a photoshoot~

Would I purchase it again? No because I’ll stay put with 15mm as my max~

Overall rating? 3.5/5 (including consideration for people with larger eye space. I still think 15mm is the most natural looking for everyone in general LOL)

Image

THANKYOU & Shout out to Fashion Eye!

Exciting news!! As some of you may know, that a while ago I entered a competition to gain the opportunity to review some contact lenses and E-Heart lashes! Firstly, I must thank you all for the epic support in voting for my makeup looks! It’s really encouraged me as I’m only just starting out on this road~ I’d also especially like to thank FashionEye for hosting the competition and being so generous in the gifts, encouragement and constant updates with the mailing of the products. So if you want new funky contacts or other fashionable hair chalk and upcoming colourful hip shorts, please visit her page! Not to mention that she caught wind of me going overseas and sent over these cute travel friendly lens cases! I’ll put a link down below so be sure to check her store out! The package came in the mail today and I’m really pumped to bring you all new tutorials and looks with these goodies!

Image

So, there’s 6 pairs of cosmetic contacts, 2 sets of e-heart lashes and 2 dolly wink palettes!!! Please be patient with me as I’m going to be away overseas for a while but nevertheless, once I get the internet up and running, nothing is going to stop me!

The contacts i’ve decided to take away with me are Beuberry Velvet, Fynale Kiwi Green and Beuberry Natural Hazel. With the reviews on these might be in a week or so… I’ve just popped a vien in my eye and I think I need to rest a bit from all the stress and work i’ve been having >M<.

So, I’m hopping on the plane tomorrow and here’s my ON THE PLANE BATTLE ACNE AND DRY SKIN set!

Image

It’s all the stuff with the green cap.~ This collection is by Etude House- specifically made to target acne prone skin and then revitalising it. I’m quite excited to try it out and even comes with a travel size bb cream! Perfect for the plane~_~ I’ll let you all how it goes!
