I could not be happier with Freshkon color fusions lenses in groovy green. It is the perfect green I have been searching for a while now.

When it comes to colored circle lenses, I much prefer the natural looking ones than the opaque ones. Freshkon groovy green lenses blend in with my natural dark brown eyes , yet it makes my eyes noticeably green. Unlike the NEO glamour green which is almost like a brownish-green that could be too natural looking  (click here for my review), Freshkon groovy green adds a perfect hint of green to my eyes, and I would still be comfortable wearing them out without feeling fake or looking too anime-ish.

by Reika on March 7, 2011

Circle lens has become the must have accessory for most Asian celebrities.  Just like clothes and handbags, I am sure all of you girls would like to check out what are the circle lenses the celebrities like to wear. I will feature a series of posts showing what they have been wearing lately.

Angelababy normally wears light brown colored circle lenses -  it is refreshing to see her wearing black lenses.

Bi Joie Hollywood Eyelashes

by Reika on March 4, 2011

If you prefer your eyes to be more dolly looking, then Japanese false eyelashes is the answer to your quest. There are lots and lots of Japanese brands that make beautiful lashes at  very affordable prices, I will talk about them in my future review posts. In short, they have a large variety of cute styles that guarantee to make your eyes appear more dolly looking.

Today I am wearing this design by Bi Joie. The lashes in the middle are thicker and longer hence it would make your eyes look much rounder. I wish I had bought more of these as I am up to my last pair now..

This is a picture of what the lashes look like:

Unfortunately I lost the original packaging of this one, this is what the box looks like. (but with a different style)

The quality of Bi Joie Hollywood eyelashes is on par with those of expensive brands. They feel very soft and light. I also did an eye makeup tutorial for this look, click here to see how I did it.

MAC Eyelashes 21 Review

by Reika on February 25, 2011

My quest for the perfect false eyelashes can stop right now, as I have found this baby – MAC false eyelash in 21.

As soon as I saw these eyelashes I knew they would be perfect on me. The length is not too long for someone like me who doesn’t have extremely long lashes to begin with, and the lashes are so densely packed. They are adding incredible volume to my existing lashes whilst still looking natural. My eyes instantly appear more defined and bigger. I was totally amazed at the result when I wore them the first time.

Some pictures from different angles:

Some before and after comparison shots. It is very obvious how much bigger my eyes appear with the lashes on.

Before and After

Applying these falsies are not as easy as applying the other MAC ones. The two ends tend to stick out a bit because the band is quite stiff to begin with, so before applying them, make sure you flex the band to soften it up.

Acuvue Define Circle Lens

by Reika on February 23, 2011

If I could only wear 1 pair of circle lens for the rest of my life, it would be the Acuvue Define in Accent Style without a second thought. Just make sure you get them from respectable retailers.


I have used tons of circle lenses and this is by far my absolute favorite. So what makes Acuvue Define lenses stand out from the competition:

1. Acuvue advertised these lenses to be so safe and comfortable that you can even take a nap in them! I never buy into advertisements but I can honestly say they are THE MOST COMFORTABLE circle lens with my hand on my heart. Their unique technology guarantees comfortable wear all day long. Personally I don’t feel there is anything in my eyes when I wear them, actually there has been a few occasions that I totally forgot I had them on!

2. They are the most natural looking lenses. Sometimes less is more. The design of these lenses is really simple, it only has a dark ring that adds definition and sparkles to your eyes. The design is nothing attractive if you compare them with other fancy lenses in the market. On eyes, they just blended in with my natural eyes perfectly. The enlargement is so subtle and natural that no one has ever noticed of them.

The diameter is 14.2.acuvue-define-accent-style-lenses

They appear medium black under natural lighting:

With flash or under direct sun light, they appear brownish black

3. Daily disposable. This is really convenient as I am tired of cleaning my lenses and lens cases all the time, and keeping track of their expiry dates.

The only drawback I can think of would be the price. They cost around $40 per box  and contain 30 lenses, which is equivalent to 15 days of wear. It can be quite costly if you wear circle lenses everyday.
