Review : Sparkle Lenses Sweet & Natural Blue

If you know me, then you already probably know by now that aside from my love for lipsticks, I'm also a very big fan of circle lenses. When I was younger, I was obsessed with circle lenses. OBSESSED.  Back then, I would save up all of my allowance to get hold of a pair (they used to cost as much as P900!).
I got gray ones, brown ones, green ones and I even got some crazier colors like red, pink & purple ones but there was one shade that was a bit elusive - blue. I had such a hard time looking for the perfect pair of blue lenses that I just gave up and stuck to the basic grays and browns but fast forward to last month... I finally found THE pair of blue lenses I've been waiting for!

What I Like:
* Color & Design - I've always had a not-so-secret penchant for blue lenses and I've finally gotten the pair that complements my Filipina skin tone AND actually appears blue against my dark brown eyes. Over the years, I've noticed that most blue lenses I've tried either look gray on my eyes or are "too" blue and fake looking. This particular pair has a three tone design which makes it as natural as natural can get. 
* Enlarging - At 14.2mm this definitely isn't an enlarging pair. Now that I'm (dare I say it?) 25 years old, 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! I don't recommend this brand for those of you out there with long nails as they have a tendency to "rip". *booo!*

Currently - V11

Well lookie here. I'm back (for now). It's been over a month since I last blogged on here. I've been busy with life in general. So many things on my plate that I have to finish up first. I've decided to come back today because today is a special day. It's my mum's birthday. She's officially 50-something. *lol* So I'm taking time off today to post another "Currently" update.

I got my mum a few gifts for her birthday this year. I got her Snowy Flowers, a gold plated name necklace, a mango entremet cake from Sweet Craft by Mitch and I baked her favorite chocolate cupcakes with buttercream frosting.

I'm currently finishing up "All The Birds in the Sky" by Charlie Jane Anders.

This blog post. *teehee*

Listening To:
So 90's.

Strawberries because I'm currently using a face mask that's a strawberry variant. *lol*

My favorite pair of leggings, a tee and my lovely blue polka dotted apron.

Well, I'm waiting for dinner. We're celebrating Mum's birthday with the typical pancit sotanghon and roasted chicken. It's kind of a family custom.

Of all the cakes I need to finish this coming week.

Sleepy. *lol*

Donuts. I've been craving donuts this entire week!

A massage. I always need a massage. *sigh*
