GEO Honey Brown (Toric) from EYECANDYS

Lately, I got quite obsessed with natural circle lenses. Remember what I said about collecting different color circle lenses? Well, I take that back. I've ditched all my colored ones last year, and natural is what I'm aiming for this year. 

And here's my first review to spearhead many more natural-looking circle lenses I'll be having this year. EyeCandys gave me the opportunity to choose one pair of circle lenses from their website, and I grabbed the chance to pick the best one I could find, and it's the GEO Honey Brown (Toric)

GEO now holds Toric circle lenses which are made to order, and according to their website will take about 1 - 2 months of waiting time. However, I feel mine didn't take that long, I think I got the package in 1 month at the most.

GEO lenses are probably the most comfortable circle lenses I've owned. I've had GEO in the past and it never disappoints. Careful though, coz lots of shops carry fake GEOs, but at Eyecandys you can be assured you get only the real thing.

Yes, I got -2.5 power for both my eyes. It's always important to get prescription to protect your eyes. Of course, they also came with a lens case.

Look, it also carries a wear and care guide which has very cute illustrations. I thought I knew everything I should about circle lenses until I read this. Found out I was a noob! So you might wanna go over it too!


I cannot stress out more how important natural-looking eyes are for everyday. Circle lenses have a tendency to freak other people out, so make sure you pick the right color and diameter. Since my eyes are a natural brown, brown circle lenses are the one for me.

I also like that the diameter of this GEO Honey Brown (Toric) is only 14.00mm so it enlarges my eyes without making me look like a weirdo.

Here is an I.D. photo of me wearing GEO Honey Brown (Toric) One can hardly tell I'm wearing any circle lenses!

I just love it! It's comfortable, natural and pretty. It enhances but not overpower the natural look of my eyes.

EMPTIES: November 2013

Hello everyone! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I had an amazing month! It's my favorite season and my birth month - so many reasons to celebrate! And I'm not going to let this year pass without posting my last empties post. And when I say last, I mean I'm not ever going to do it again. Or maybe I will, but definitely not in the near future. You know when something starts to feel like an obligation, you start to shy away from it? I've been doing empties post all-year round and it came to a point where I just grew a little tired of doing it, which is wrong because blogging should relieve me of stress and not be a source of it. It's sad because I know that my empties posts are the most viewed entries in my blog, but when I think about it again, this way I could give room to several backlogs which I ought to have done ages ago.

Last November, most of my circle lenses reached their 1 year expiry. In addition, I also accidentally tore one of my circle lenses which I've had for only a couple of weeks. I feel so sorry about it because it was a very pretty one. It's the GEO Magic Brown Circle Lenses from Angel Contacts which I did a review of only days before I tore it apart.

I have been using the Etude House Dear Darling Roll Roll Gloss for so long I'm so glad to finally  get rid of it. The cap broke off on the first month of buying it, so I had to endure leaking everytime I had to use it. Etude House packaging is hands down the cutest but to be honest I don't trust its quality.

The Mary Kay Eye Love It! Mascara served me very well. It's one of the best mascaras I've tried and I still don't get how it's not popular. Review here.

I don't have that many bumps on my back but this Celeteque Back Acne Spray got rid of what's in there. I recommend trying it if you have an acne-prone back area.

I got this Snoe Beso Balm in my December 2012 BDJ Box. I love how minty and cool it is and how it just glides on my lips. Amazingly enough, it freshens the breath too. So much better than Burt's Bees.

The Face Shop Supreme Cereal Brown Rice Mask is probably the best of the bunch of Face Shop masks haul I did a while back. It gave a sort of radiance the morning after, albeit temporary.

The Redskin Clear Nose Pack is sooo disappointing! Or maybe because it's long past expiry. I wasn't able to even make use of it. I couldn't separate the vinyl sheet. This is one of the stuff from a giveaway I won which contained a few expired products. Come on, bloggers! If you have expired products don't give them away! Toss them to the trash where they belong. Ugggh.

The Gluta-C Body Scrub is something I'm happy about. It smells really good and gives an almost instant glow. Thanks, Sample Room!

I'm sad Fairness and Flawless Collagen Elastin Cream finished quite fast. I'm loving all my Fairness and Flawless products so far.

This sample of Tony Moly Broccoly Sprout Cleansing Cream is also from my December 2012 BDJ Box. It reminded me of Pold's Cold Cream with a delish scent.

If you've been reading my previous empties post, you've probably seen this Qatar Airways and Hello Kitty Wet Wipes because I just love using them in removing make-up in the middle of the day.

The Celeteque Moisturizering Gel is one of the products that Unilab sent me along with the back acne spray and several others. Gel products are best for oily skin however I don't think it inhibited the growth of acne. It kept my skin away from oil but in terms of acne, it's not as good as its facial wash, spot corrector and back acne spray counterparts. 

I really enjoyed using the White Result Exfoliating Gel! It's mild and left my skin super fresh. I'm happy that it didn't break me out!

There's nothing special about the Dove Intense Repair Shampoo but I do love how the conditioner version of this smells. If ever I repurchase a Dove hair product, it's the conditioner, not shampoo.

That's all, folks! 'Til my next hit pan post in who-knows-when, haha! I'll try to post a Secret Santa unboxing this week! For the mean time, enjoy the rest of the holidays! Follow me on Instagram @nadinediamante

Fairness and Flawless Lip Exfoliator

Hey, cookies! I hope you still remember me, haha! It feels like an awful long time ago since I last wrote a review. I figured it's high time I share with you all my experience with Lip-Ex from Fairness and Flawless.

Previously, a local beauty company named Fairness and Flawless sent me a bunch of products to try out and review. Everything looks promising and I was so elated about them, but if there's one thing I was a little indifferent about it's the lip scrub. When I read lip scrub, I was like, errmmm ok. What am I gonna do with that? I didn't find the need for it at that time. How wrong I was! When I started using it a few weeks ago, I couldn't stop it. I got hooked.

Like most products from Fairness and Flawless, Lip-Ex is housed in a white tub. Upon opening you will find a lid to avoid spillage and secure the product inside.

The pertinent point in using a lip scrub is to remove dead cells and regenerate new ones, making lips a lot softer and smoother. I like applying Lip-Ex using my ring finger and gently rub on my lips for about two minutes, or until I feel the beads slowly melting. I wipe the product with a cloth or tissue and - tadah! My lips are softer, smoother with a hint of pink. I am so impressed that it leaves a pinkish tint. Apply lip balm afterwards and your lips are in tiptop shape.

I noticed that the dark outline of my lips are starting to fade! I no longer have that dark line on the center of my lips. So what I plan to do, is to focus application on the sides to get it even. I shall update this post and show a photo of my lips once the line is gone completely, just to prove to you guys how amazing it really is. It lightens effectively, so I would advice this to anyone with pigmented lips or dark lip outline. Of course if you have chapped lips, this will work wonders as well as it helps remove dead skin.

Lip scrubs are one of those products you don't think you need until you use it, trust me! For me, it is even quite addictive. There was a time that I was thoroughly enjoying the application of lip scrub that I did it everyday. Wrong move! My lips dried out. Like face exfoliation, Lip-Ex must be applied only once to twice a week to get optimum results.
