Review : UNIQSO - GEO XMUA14 Eyes Cream Vanilla Brown

I've always been a fan of Uniqso and their products, so being offered a choice of which lens I'd like to review was really exciting for me. I chose the GEO Eyes Cream Vanilla Brown lenses from the new GEO line. I chose these lenses because of the color and design... Read on for a more in depth review!

What I Like :
* Color & Design - I've always been comfortable wearing brown lenses. These are a perfect shade of brown that compliments my dark brown eyes. It adds a touch of sparkle to my eyes that I particularly like. The lighter shade of brown that makes up the inner ring really compliments the other shades of brown as well. It makes this pair of lenses appear almost hazel-like. 

* Enlarging - At 14.5mm this is an enlarging pair without making you look like a reptile. 14.5mm is a safe size for me because it's enlarging enough to make my eyes pop but not overly crazy for people to be scared of me.

* Comfort & Ease of Use - For a "seasoned" circle lens wearer, this pair was a breeze to use. It isn't flimsy and isn't heavy on the eyes. I wore this pair for more than 4 hours and had no problems whatsoever.

What I Don't Like :

* Not locally available.

DressLily Package : Goodies!

Last May I was contacted by the sweet people over at DressLily and they offered to send me some pretty stuff from their site with a $20 gift certificate. DressLily is "a leading international online fashion clothing and accessory store. Focusing on the very latest in affordable fashion styles, both attire and stunning accessories, we feature thousands of the newest product lines, providing maximum choice and convenience to our discerning clientele."
They pride themselves on "fashion that's affordably yours, fast shipping, professional packaging and best in class customer service.
Last month I received their package with my chosen items. I chose two wristwatches and a small satchel-type bag.
The first wristwatch I got was this black one with a rubber strap. It has rose gold detailing and is a functional everyday watch. I really like this watch because it doesn't draw too much attention to itself yet is striking enough when you take a closer look at it. It has a belt-like locking mechanism.

The second watch I chose is this lovely rose-gold watch with tiny sparkly gems on the border. This is a dressier watch that I like using on nights out. My lil sister is also not-so-secretly into this watch as well.

The last thing I received is this lovely black satchel that's a bit small for my liking because I'm used to huge bags but it's a nice breather from all my big bags. I can fit my wallet, keys, my phone and a tube of lipstick. It can be used as a clutch and it has a strap that can turn it into a cross body bag.
