Review: Geo Princess Mimi/Bambi Series WMM-305 Sesame Grey


Review time!

Design: 10/10 what's not to love? Colour is extremely vibrant. Doesn't show well in my pics because I'm using a shitty iPhone camera but it's really obvious IRL. Love love lovin the pretty yellow part in the middle too, it really makes my eyes pop!
Enlargement: 10/10, so make sure you wear enough eye makeup to go along with these or you'll look watery/bug-eyed and quite scary ~.~
 I can honestly say these are the most enlarging lenses I have. And the prettiest too (Though this could very well change when I try on my chocolate brown ones. Or the Apple Green which I plan to get ASAP *grabby grabby hands* )
Comfort:9/10 They're really comfortable! I soaked them in solution for about 6 hours and the moment I inserted them, I could barely feel them in my eye. This is an extremely rare occurrence for me, just ask any of my friends how many times I blink and complain that my eyes are dry in a day! These lenses were really thin. They do seem thinner than my super angel greys, and definitely more comfy. I wore them for 8 hours without eyedrops and I didn't feel an urgent need to remove them the moment I got home.

I leave you with a full-face shot.

Please excuse the patchy and messy makeup, I'd just gotten back from a really long day at school and it was raining on the way home >.<

Coming up next - Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion, Geo Princess Mimi Chocolate Brown and swatches of my haul :)

Review: Biore Aqua Rich UV Face Mousse SPF 50+/PA+++

nBiore Aqua Rich UV Face Mousse

Say goodbye to heavy sticky sun protection!
This silky soft UV mousse feels so light and comfortable, like water on your skin!
With Biore's breakthrough technology, the UV block ingredient is locked inside the unique Aqua Micro Capsule, providing SPF 50+/PA+++ protection while keeping your skin refreshed.

Superior Long-lasting Double UV Block
High SPF factor provides long-lasting UV protection against skin-aging UVA rays and skin-burning UVB rays.
Light & Refreshing As Water
Aqua Micro Capsule with UV Block Ingredient releases moisture to leave skin with a light and fresh feeling.
Hydrates & Softens Skin
Contains moisturizing ingredients, hyaluronic acis and citrus essence* (*Extracts of orange, grapefruit and lemon) to keep skin hydrated and healthy.
- Mild fresh fruity fragrance
- Spreads easily and absorbs instantly
- Allergy tested

USAGE: Apply evenly on face after moisturizer and before applying makeup. For best results, reapply after excessive perspiration. Like all sunscreens, cleanse product off thoroughly using a makeup remover.

CAUTION: Keep product away from high temperature and direct sunlight. If skin irritation occurs, discontinue use. Do not stay too long in the sun even while using a sunscreen product.


My Review

This sunblock definitely lives up to its claims.
- Non-sticky and light It practically melted into water upon contact with my skin. Absorbed quickly and face felt smooth and soft, no sticky feeling at all. Unlike many other sunscreens, it doesn't look oily on the face but it actually does quite a marvelous job of moisturising ^_^
- Scent-wise, it has a slight citrusy smell which fades away quite quickly into the usual sunblock smell which I personally don't mind.
- It does not leave a white cast on my skin and I'm very pleased with this product overall.
- However, I'd recommend this for normal/combination/oily skin types as it might not be sufficiently hydrating for very dry skin types.

Texture: 10/10 the best I've used so far (In fact it's even better than Chanel's Blanc Essentiel IMO!)
Hydration: 9/10
SPF: 8/10, since it has PA+++ and provides UVA and UVB protection. However, minus 2 points because Sunplay has a sunblock with SPF 130 which can be used on the face :)

Can't wait can't wait can't wait

I can't wait for my Geo Princess Mimi's to arrive!!!!! April 5th seems soooo far away even though it's tomorrow. And I want my iFairy ruby+hanabi reds and EOS dollyeyes and adult red too but I'll have to wait for like another 2-4 weeks arghhh. I'm more excited about the Geos though!

Anyway, EOS has launched a Bambi series lookalike except that degrees are available from 0~1000! Geo's Princess Mimi's are only available from 0-600, and most places in Singapore are only selling the green in Plano. I only saw powered green ones over at honeycolor and eyecandylenses, which have such ripoff prices so I refuse to buy from them. And apparently, the Princess Mimi Almonds are actually 14.8mm and not 15mm as advertised. This is because the series is called XMM and designs that start with an X are 14.8mm. If it were 15mm it'd start with a W, wouldn't it? But 0.2mm, what big difference would it make? I mean, just look at your ruler, 1mm is already so small! 0.2mm is like...negligible. I wish the contact lens manufacturers would produce their new designs in 14mm. Bigger ain't always better, not everyone's eyes are so huge.....anyway I need to continue working on bloody PBF essays now!

Till next time~~
