KPop2- EyeTeck Iris Brown Circle Lens Review

Hey dears! I'm lucky enough to be able to review the EyeTeck Iris Brown 14.2mm circle lens from KPop2, for you today. It's my new favourite pair of lens because it's actually really natural compared to other colored circle lens, and they are really comfortable! I wore them for my university May Ball yesterday for over 8 hours and they didn't get dry or uncomfortable at all. These are definitely must-haves if you're a lens lover like me. Take a look at some pictures below at the ball, all glammed up and ready to go with my lens and eye make-up! 


My package came really fast and included a small, cute lens container. As you can see, they look brown and are patterned with a black outer spiral-like rim. I really like the color because it's absolutely gorgeous and makes me feel really confident and extra special! Wearing circle lenses makes your eyes bigger too- these have a nice enlarging effect and compliment my brown hair well. There are seriously no disadvantages to these lenses- I didn't experience irritation or anything when I was wearing these lenses. 


I had a great time at the ball and took lots of beautiful photos. But my look is only complete with these lovely circle lens from KPop2- so thank you so much Kpop2 and please check them out if you can! They have a lot of different types of circle lens suitable for all different tastes and skin tones. You can check out these lenses here! I'd definitely recommend them fully and honestly - they're one of the most comfortable and natural pair of lens I own. 

What do you think of them?

Bow and Crossbones Shop- Feature

Ever wanted to wear matching earrings and a necklace for your party? I've been going to a lot of events lately around campus and school, since exams are almost over and it's summertime soon. I want to introduce you to my latest favourite shop online- Bow and Crossbones - they're vintage, sassy and hip.  

Just a little about the shop- they're dedicated to bringing vintage, retro and rockin pieces to girls who like rare, unique and hip pieces of jewellery and accessories. Bow & Crossbones sells vintage-inspired items such as glittering confetti filled earrings, brooches and necklaces inspired by Tiki and Rockabilly fashions. If you're new to this blog, you'll know that I'm actually a vintage-loving girl. I really enjoy dressing up my inner 90s girl! 


So I did a little online ordering and bought a Sacred Heart Necklace (Silver) for £11.99  and a pair of matching Silver swallow earrings to go with them. I needed them for a party and thought they'd be perfect for my vintage dress that night. So here are the pictures from my lovely package which came in the mail soon afterwards... 


Aren't they beautiful? I love swallow-inspired pieces, because birds symbolise freedom, heaven and paradise. I think birds are the epitome of vintage-styled designs, because they capture the free spirit that's inside all of us. Not only are the earrings light and shiny, the necklace was also the perfect thickness to go with a heavy dress. It's really good quality too, and felt sturdy and unbreakable. I received a lot of complements when I wore the matching earrings and necklace at my party, everyone asked me where I got it from!

So check out Bow and Crossbones! Their stuff is absolutely fantastic and chic!

Dolly Eye Crystal.i Hazel - Circle Lens Review

It's exam time and what's the best way to de-stress? You guessed it - review a new pair of circle lens! I'm a huge fan of coloured contact lens, although I know it isn't practical to wear them everyday. I ordered a pair of Dolly Eye Crystal i Hazel lens (14.5mm in diameter) from the awesome circle lens shop UNIQSO (http://www.uniqso.com)  to wear as part of a special day, and I thought I'd try them on today because the weather was lovely and I was heading out. Here's my review with lots of pictures so you can see what they look like! 

Price: $17.90
PROS: It came in a lovely little box and was really quick to deliver. Also, the circle lens were well-designed and looked really natural and not too light in color, so it would be perfect for those of you with brown or dark eyes. I also like the enlarging effect- it is quite obvious and makes your eyes look bigger, so I would say it looks better with makeup on than a bare face. I also think that the pattern is very beautiful because it is slightly mixed and has 2-3 tones of color. Also, I wore them for 7 hours without irritation, so they can be worn for a long time and are very comfortable! I got lots of compliments and felt more confident wearing these lenses~ 


CONS: There isn't many at all- I really love this pair of lens and they're really comfortable, even with sensitive eyes like mine. The only thing I would say is be careful with the size- it is 14.5mm in diameter, which is quite large and if you don't have big eyes, I'd recommend either wearing more makeup with these lens or choosing a smaller pair of lens on UNIQSO's website. 

I managed to get a 10% discount code to use on UNIQSO's website for all you readers! Simply enter "FANTAILFLO" at checkout to get some money off- and the lenses are affordable and cheap! 

Please check their contact lens store out and let me know what you think of my look and leather jacket! Let's all survive this Easter term!

Sleek MakeUp 'I Divine' Eyeshadow In Oh So Special + MaxFactor Lip Infinity (Red) Review

Sleek MakeUp 'I Divine' Eyeshadow Review

Hey lovelies! It's ball season this month, with exams nearly out of the way. I was lucky enough to receive a package from Beautifeyea UK-based makeup and contact lens store to review two of their new products. Sleek MakeUp 'I Divine' Eyeshadow In Oh So Special is an eyeshadow palette with 12 shades of super-pigmented, longlasting, mineral based eyeshadow, designed to suit everyone. Each eyeshadow contains pearly, vibrant shades, which contain mica particles that highlight and illuminate giving an overal radiant effect. 


This eyeshadow palette includes ultra flattering pink and brown shades that will suit all your needs, whether it be for a party or for a ball. I used it for several events recently, so hopefully this review will be useful for you girls who want to buy a new eye makeup palette.

PRODUCT: 9/10 - 
I really loved this product because it came in a thin, sleek black box, which meant that it was easy to carry around in your purse or handbag. Also, the makeup palette contained 12 colours, which meant that it's great for every occasion. I particularly like the pink and blue shimmering eyeshadows, which complemented my skin colour really well. 

PIGMENTATION: 9/10 - 
The colours applied really well onto my skin, and they were really obvious even from afar. This is good if you're going after a heavy smokey eyed look, but also great if you want something lighter, like for parties and job interviews. As you can see in my pictures, the shadow's pigmentation colors turn out lovely in pictures. 

TEXTURE: 10/10 -
The palette is mineral-based, so I really liked the texture of this eyeshadow. It was  non-flaky and not powdery, but quite heavy and covered your eyelids really well. The fact that it is mineral based meant that it's matte and also shiny, depending on your colours! 

LONGEVITY: 8/10 -
I applied brown, dark brown and black to my eyelids for a formal ball, and the makeup lasted for over 5 hours without me having to re-apply. I think that in terms of long-lasting effects, this palette is quite good. However, I think after 5-6 hours, you would have to re-apply to get the best effect. Either that, or apply double coats beforehand. 

APPLICATION: 4/5 -
The box came with a makeup smudge stick which was good for applying, although I found the stick too thick for my tiny eyes. But the eyeshadow was really easy to apply with the smudge stick, or even with my own brushes. You can even use your fingers, and it washes off very well with a little bit of cleanser. 


MaxFactor Lipfinity (Red 120) Review

 Buy Max Factor Lipfinity Lipstick - 120 Hot on Beautifeye.co.uk - £9.99 

The second product I am going to review is the Max Factor Lipfinity lip tint.  The obvious strength of this lip tint is that it offers incredible color that really does last all day. With a semi permanent colour and a shine boosting moisturising topcoat there’s no need to reapply, even after eating and drinking throughout your day – no matter how long it is, your lipstick’s still on!


The application is not as simple as other lip tints- I had to apply the semi permanent colour bottom coat (mine's in red) that keeps the colour tone all day. Then after applying the first tone, I had to apply the transparent 'top-coat', which came in a vaseline-like stick and provided added moisture and shine. The results? A red pair of lips that isn't too tacky, quite vibrant and had the staying power of a horse.

It was also quite matte if you just used the bottom coating without the top coat, so if you like matte lipsticks, this product would be good value for money because you can use it as two products.

I really think that few other lip tints have the staying power of Lipfinity, which can last for up to 12 hours! I'd highly recommend this lip tint to those who want a long-lasting lip effect, perfect for all-night ball events and formal occasions that last all night.
