One thing that's been keeping me going is building my new computer. I spray painted the case pink and it's all put together now with pretty lights, but I'm going to find some bling for it to fully decorate it before I post it up. ;) But I forgot how time-consuming and frustrating it is re-installing all of my programs and getting old files to work as well as they used to on the other computer! Oh, well, baby steps to get to my dream machine.
I know you really want to get to the important stuff of this post so I'll get to it! Here is my review of the Dueba DM23 Grey lenses that received as part of my sponsorship with Pinky Paradise.
Here are the lens vials (Barbie packaging) and cute animal case, a hippo.
The pattern is quite wide so you won't get any blurriness around the pupil hole with these.
Can I just say right now that these are woah-mama the hugest looking lenses that I've ever tried? Technically, the 14.5mm diameter is the same as the Big MX21 Cosmo Brown lenses but for some reason these look sooo much bigger. I think it's because they are such a darker color that it has more of the effect of black lenses without being as harsh as actual black lenses. I'm already a petite person with small eyes so I'm sure someone with larger irises is going to want lenses just like these to actually give them the dolly look compared to smaller circle lenses. As for me, I think I prefer the smaller 14.0mm lenses.
Here is the effect of the lens compared to my plain eye.
And my whole face. Very dolly-like!
I will admit, it does look more natural from far away and I think it looks nice in pics but it probably requires more makeup in general to balance such a large iris. ;)
Yup, yup I am loving my velvet leggings and old black dance legwarmers. It's SNOWING AGAIN! D:
Tomorrow if I'm feeling up for it, I'm going to try to record a V-day makeup tutorial. We'll see if it happens.
Oh, PS, I re-uploaded the Brown Eyed Girls "Abracadabra" inspired video tutorial for those of you who were waiting for it. Please comment & rate since I lost the ones in the past. :)
