Because for this week, I'll be doing a 2-in-1 review using a FOTD look (inspired by summer) I created recently. A pair of lenses and a pair of false eyelashes... both go so well together and saves me from taking separate pictures for review and blogging.
For the first time in like... ever, I managed to snap a few pictures outside in my backyard. Nothing too fancy but I just thought that it would be appropriate to be taking 'summer' shots outside while it's still summer over here.
In case you weren't aware, I now have pinkish/brownish/orange-ish ends
I used my Maybelline Hypershine Diamonds palette which I got last year here and for me the warm, fiery tones reminded me of summer. What I love about it is that it's great for both day and night - neutral yet vibrant colours!

Indoor, natural lighting
Comparison of no flash and flash photography
With the black limbal ring and a diameter of 14.7mm, these lenses are perfect for that dolly look. However if you are aiming for a more exaggerated dolly look, lenses that are 15-16mm would be a better choice. I wouldn't say that these are natural-looking but for someone who is aiming to have doll-like eyes without creeping people out to the max then I would totally recommend these. They aren't too outrageous and dramatic.
At first I was having a bit of trouble with these lenses (stung and felt that they didn't 'fit' properly) but after changing the soaking solution and using eye drops, they were comfortable to wear and I had no issues with them afterwards.
Simple design yet pretty - love 'em!
The Soft Criss-Cross lashes complement these lenses very well as they are also quite fancy but not too out-there. They are from KKCenterHK:
Not only are the lashes soft - the band is too! This allows me to gently bend the band into shape to fit onto my upper lash line. I love the length of these and because the lashes aren't so dense, they're really lightweight and blend amazingly with my natural lashes. The good thing about these is that you can glue them on top of each other the add volume if necessary... though I would leave them as they are :)
At this angle, they look super subtle
New favourite lashes right now are these!
There's not much more to say about them; the images speak for themselves! I would definitely recommend and for only $6.49 for 10 pairs, it would be so worth it I swear :D And you can get an additional 10% off with the promo code 'QUESTJEN'.
Thank you to my lovely sponsors for making this FOTD what it is and to YOU for reading/dropping by. As a sign of appreciation, I will upload this silly picture of me to make you smile.... maybe....
If it's not too ugly....

What would you do if I came up to you like this and tried to hug you? LOL
Kidding, kidding. You don't have to answer that :P
REAL questjen of the week:
Which do you prefer - circle lenses or falsies?
