Sponsored review: G&G Shimmer Yellow lenses from LensFlavors

Heyy all! I have another review for you today!
I'm reviewing G&G Shimmer Yellow lenses from LensFlavors 
I picked these lenses to go with onee gyaru make-up and peachy tones! Although I think they may be a little too vivid to go with peach..


They came in very fast and by registred mail I think! Because I signed for it~ Communication with LensFlavors has also been nothing but pleasant all the way :)

The lenses itself look like this:


As you can see they are very transparent and I had very good hopes for a halo effect TT^TT. They are also relatively harge for lenses with such a natural pattern! 
Let's see how those work out on my eyes:

one in
 natural light
 flash
 room light

As you can see they look super vivid and the transparency makes them fade out nicely. However no outer rings means no real halo...however I don't really mind, I love how they look on my eyes~!!


The lenses are large but very soft and the pattern isn't very dense. Which means they are comfortable to wear but hard to put in as they bend over my finger when I put them in.


The verdict for G&G Shimmer Yellow lenses from LensFlavors :

Appearance 
Comfort 
Service 

Passed with flying colors! I know I will be using these a lot~!

Sponsored Review: O-lens 6 months - Jenith 3 color, natural gray lenses from pinkicon

Hey all! This time around I was offered the opportunity by Pinkicon to review these O-lens 6 month lenses, the model is Jenith 3 color natural gray lenses, the origin of the lenses is Korea. I chose these lenses because I wanted something natural that would match my eyes in the same way brown lenses match the eyes of Japanese gals. To see if I could do the same kind of makeup looks.


Shipping went very fast and I was provided a tracking code, which I rarely get when I order lenses. Pinkicon is based in HK but they ship for free worldwide.
Pinkicon has the cutest packaging and they also included this folder, I am showing the O-lens side on the top because that is the segment I got mine from and I think they are very cute!! Actually the O-lens Jenith 3 color series is also on the monthly promotion, you can check them out at Pinkicon under the sales tag

The folder is overall cute, other brands are also advertised and it got me inspired for a look to do in the review, keep scrolling ;)



These are the lenses as they look in the vial, they look very transparent, the edge is a little darker and fades in, and there is some gold detail in the middle. This would lead me to expect a different effect than the actual effect.

Let's take a closer look at the design:


 One in

Natural light

Flash


Room light

I would expect a halo effect but due to the size and maybe my own eye colour I don't get that with these lenses.
Other than that they enlarge a little, they blend with my eyes well, in dim light and in contrast with my own eyes they actually look more green or hazel than grey.

I tried to do two looks, one slightly more gyaru than the other, because I wasn't sure what would look good with such a subtle lens.
Unfortunately the camera and editing washed out most of the difference :/


I think they can actually go both ways. This kind of lens can easily be worn to school or work because it is so subtle, but it fills up the eye just enough for a look with false lashes~


As you can see, no halo. It is definitely the size of the lenses I think. Although the size and the seethroughness make them incredibly comfortable. Easy to put in and wear all day. This is a lens I would wear on the sunday of a weekend meetup. Or I could wear this to the office if we're having a nomikai after.
Let me stress how much I appreciate the way Pinkicon promotes lens safety by including a cute users manual and by offering shorter term lenses. I believe the shorter term lenses are beneficial to hygene and they are also comfortable.



Sooo the verdict for O-lens 6 months - Jenith 3 color natural gray  lenses from Pinkicon:
Appearance 
Comfort      
Service        

Thank you for checking out this review and also check out my previous review of Pinkicon, it's funny because it's like a sister look to these looks (with the stripes and the flowercrown).
I hope you liked what I did here :3 Thank you~!!
