Alright, so getting to the topic, I wanted to tell you all about some circle lenses. As many of you know, I previously got my lenses from Pretty and Cute but sadly, Janie has decided to no longer offer circle lenses. She will still be selling lots of super cute Asian cosmetics and accessories so I still highly recommend checking her out but yeah, I'm sad about it too. :(
The good news is that I will now be sponsored by Pinky Paradise to provide lots of lens reviews in the future! Pinky Paradise is a Malaysian-based lens company so lenses travel slightly farther to get here to the US but I was given tracking info and it actually didn't take much longer at all. I received 3 pairs of lenses (2 of which I will be posting about in my next entries: Adult Violet and Big DM32) along with cute animal cases for each lens and a collagen eye mask. They send the animal cases and collagen mask as freebies with every order.
Here is my video review of the first of the 3 lenses, Dueba MX21 Celeb Brown (14.5mm).
It was my favorite of the lenses I got and the first I tried on. My first impression was wow, pretty! The brown color shows up really nice and bright in real life (like in the video) and it's a natural color so it doesn't look too crazy. In fact, it's my favorite brown lens I've tried and I've previously owned Vassen brown, Adult brown, G&G bt02 brown, and Pacifica honey. I do love my Adult browns but I don't even know if I consider them brown, more like brown-grey like Solotica ocre. MX21 Celeb brown (14.5mm) is a true brown honey color, not too grey or orange.
Here are the lens vials and case
And a look at the pattern in the vials
How they look on me, with my new Canon XSi! Oh man, the image quality. ^^ And I know they look fake but I did NO retouching at all to these pics, just light adjustment and adding the watermark. The lenses just give that glossy look!
Here is with one lens in to show the enlargement. Sorry about the blurriness, I'm still a dslr novice and I used auto mode for everything. ^.^;;;
And one more to show it in different lighting. I was standing closer to my floor lamp. See how bright and sparkly it is? It's a lovely effect.

By the way, did anyone notice I got my hair cut? These were taken a week ago on Dec 14th, my birthday and when I got my haircut. I wanted lots of shorter layers like the Japanese models. Really happy about how it turned out. :D
I'll go more in-depth in an upcoming post with my hair inspiration and before & after pics. ^^
Hope you all have a lovely holiday week and I'll be back soon with another lens review!
