I'll spare you all the boring details about that and instead jump right into this "currently" post. Just something random and quirky to update you all and to say that I'm still very much alive and kickin'!

Review : Sparkle Lenses in OMG Brown

I'm going to be very honest. I suck at starting my blog posts. *lol* I've been staring at the screen for the past 15 minutes and I decided to just "go with it". So here I am, typing rapidly away trying to think of a nice way to say that I'll be talking about circle lenses again. HAHAHA!~

Well anyway, since I already mentioned it, today I'll be talking about a new pair of circle lenses that I got last week... I've been seeing so much of the Solotica Hidrocor lenses online that I just had to take a look for myself. They're pretty pricey (some shops sell them for P500-P800 a pair) but lucky for me Sparkle lenses carry "Solotica INSPIRED" lenses for only P250/pair and I found a seller with on hand stocks...

It took me some time to decide which ones to get because they all looked so pretty. I pretty much stick to grays and browns so in the end I got the Princess Riri Gray and the OMG Brown. Today I'll be reviewing the OMG Brown ones.

What I Like:
* Color & Design - Out of the colors available for lenses, brown is the one I usually gravitate towards to when I want an "easy to wear" color. I usually go for 3-tone lenses but this particular 2 tone design still looks beautifully striking against my natural dark brown eyes without looking too harsh. I also love the fact that I don't need to wear a lot of eye makeup to make this particular pair "work" for me.

* Enlarging - At 14.5mm this definitely isn't a very enlarging pair. Now that I'm older, I prefer to not have the "doll-eye" look anymore. I'm more comfortable donning 14.2-14.5mm pairs.

* 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 straight in an air-conditioned room and had no problems whatsoever.

*Lasts for a year!

What I Don't Like:
* It is a bit on the flimsy side, so be careful in handling this pair!

So, my dearest readers, have any of you tried on Solotica inspired lenses? What can you say about them? Which ones would you recommend for me? Catch you all on my next post!

First 2017 Haulage

Hello again everyone! Let's start off March2017 with my first haul post this year. It's been a long time since I last really purchased makeup. I told myself that 2016 would be devoted to investing more of my money into the business (Sugar Works!) with the exception of lipsticks (LOVE!!!) but now it's time for a little treat. A little self love never hurt anyone, right?

I found an online makeup store owned by Miss Angeline Buna and she's selling a lot of authentic makeup. I got a few things from her that I've been eyeing. I got the L.A. Girl Pro Coverage HD long wear illuminating foundation in the shade beige for P490, the L'Oreal Paris 24 hour Infallible Pro Matte demi matte foundation in shade 105 for P540 & the Kleancolor Pro Sealer makeup setting spray for only P140.

This loot is from Suzanne's Emporium.  I got the AOA Studio Wonder Blender for P150, the NYC Smooth Skin Fini Parfait BB Cream in light for P180, the Kleancolor Brow Pomade in taupe for P150 and the Kleancolor Frameous Brows brow mascara in brown black for P150. Pretty cool stuff for a decent price point. I got them off Shopee and got free shipping as well!

Lastly I got these really cool lenses from Bham's Contact Lens Variety Store c/o Miss Rosemary Rios. These lenses are "solotica" inspired but are from the brand Sparkle. I got OMG brown & PRINCESS RIRI gray. I've tried them on already and I'm excited to do a review on them soon.

So, that's about it for now. Catch me on my next post!
