Hello, lovelies!
Halloween is just around the corner and I already decided on my costume, but it's always fun to look at the huge variety of costumes out there; And these new costumes from LUNATIC LEMONY LOLLIPOP are just too cute!

My favorite costumes from this collection are probably the "American Cheerleader" and the "Dolly Nurse" Costume. The combination of classic concepts and cute pastel colors is perfect.

The other costumes are called "Unicorn Girl" (to the left), "Mermaid Princess", "Swan Prima", "Classic Diner Girl", and "Bondage Bunny".

I honestly think these would be too cute to wear for Halloween, since I personally prefer spooky things during this time, but they would definitely be great for any costume party, photoshoot or simply if you really like to dress up.

You can also check out their other costumes and items in my previous posts about LUNATIC LEMONY LOLLIPOP, here and here.

Would you wear any of these costumes? If yes, which one would you want? Let me know in the comments!

[Review] I.Fairy Super Crystal Violet

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

Design 
The pattern is very unique. It's speckled and very detailed, yet it looks so subtle when wearing the lenses. It has a very, very thin and discrete limbal ring, which kinda of turns into "spikes" towards the inner part. The small dots in the center of the lens gives a slightly blending effect.

Color 
The color of these lenses consist of 2 tones of violet. The base color of is a perfect shade of Violet, with neither a too blue nor too pink hue, mixed with a darker violet. I did expect the color to be lighter and more vibrant since they are a bit darker compared to the Blue & Brown ones. However, I still absolutely love the color! It looks especially pretty in bright environments and when taking photos with flash.

Enlargement 
These lenses are huge and the enlargement is simply amazing, even though they don't have a prominent limbal ring. Lenses without a prominent limbal ring usually don't give you as much of an enlarging effect as those lenses with a limbal ring do, so I'm positively surprised that these still give me the amazing enlarging effect that I'm looking for.

Comfort 
These are very comfortable considering the big diameter. They're not the most comfortable lenses I've tried, but the comfort is still very good and I can wear them for several hours without a problem.

The lenses from the I.Fairy Super Crystal series are my absolute favorite out of all the lenses I've ever had. I already own the ones in Blue & Brown, and since I love Violet lenses I was so happy to finally get these; I absolutely adore them! They might even be my favorite lenses of all time.

They're everything I want in a pair of lenses. The design is unique and pretty, the color is a gorgeous violet, and they're huge! I will probably not use them as everyday lenses since I prefer something more natural for casual occasions. However, I will definitely use them whenever I'm taking self-portraits. I guess these are now officially my trademark lenses!

Like I mentioned earlier, they're a bit darker than I expected, but the color is still gorgeous and I just love everything about these lenses. However, I do think that they will look best on those with blue eyes.

My main eye area problem is dark circles, but since I'm very sceptic towards those kind of creams I chose to give this firming cream a try instead since I am also experiencing early signs of aging and dryness (which mostly only show up when I'm wearing makeup). I believe that the key to good skin is to prevent the problems to appear in the first place, or at least as early as possible before it's "too late".

(The spatula is not included when buying this cream)

The texture of this cream is quite thick and creamy but light-weight. It has a slightly cooling and watery feel to it. It feels a tiny bit heavy when applied at first but it absorbs into the skin very quickly and temporarily leaves my eye area looking more plump and makes it feel smooth and moisturized. It has a subtle and pleasant fruity/floral scent which I absolutely adore.

Results
When I first started using this I noticed that when I massaged my eye area or rubbed my eyes ever so gently, skin started to peel off (just as if you rub your skin with a towel after showering and dead skin is revealed). I'm not sure if this is because of the cream or the result of me neglecting my eye area for too long since I haven't used any eye creams or the likes of it for a very long time. However, the "flaking" ceased after using this cream for a week, and instead I started to see improvements in the skin around my eyes.

I noticed that the skin around my eyes looks much firmer and smoother than it did before, which also made my fine lines appear much less prominent. It's been great to use before applying makeup since it absorbs into the skin really fast and leaves a smooth and supple canvas for my base makeup. Using this cream for a prolonged amount of time has resulted in my eye makeup looking a lot better, not dry and flaky like it used to be. It hasn't helped to remove my dark circles, but the skin around my eyes does appear a lot healthier-looking and radiant than it did before I started using this cream (combined with massaging techniques and drinking lots of water). I also haven't experienced any side effects; I used to have milia and it has a tendency of breaking out again whenever I use eye creams that are too rich, but this cream hasn't caused me any problems at all.

Conclusion
My conclusion is that this eye cream is suitable for basic care. It's not made to improve dark circles nor does it magically remove wrinkles, but it does keep the skin around your eyes looking healthy, more firm and moisturized. It gives the perfect amount of moisture and care without being too rich. It simply lived up to what I expected. Whether you will think this cream is good or not completely depends on what you need in an eye cream.


Will I repurchase this? Yes and no. Like I mentioned, this cream is good for basic care and has worked great for me. However, I will only repurchase this If I don't find a cream that I think will suit my needs better.

Thank you for reading! I hope this review was helpful to you. Would you buy this cream?

Hello, lovelies. I've been really into photography and photo editing lately. I'm in love with gradient and bokeh effects and I'm currently playing around with it to improve my editing skills. I recently got these beautiful Vivienne Westwood Mini Bas Relief jewelries and thought that they'd be perfect for this. I love them so much! Vivienne Westwood is one of my favorite brands and I can't wait to get more of her jewelry.
