In the Pursuit of Fabulous Review of I. Fairy Dolly + Red Lenses from Uniqso

Hello again lovelies!
   I am back with another contact lens review. Since things have finally calmed down from last month I can catch up with reviews and tutorials. This time I am reviewing the super popular I. Fairy Dolly + Red lenses from Uniqso. These are one of Uniqso's most popular lenses and I completely know why. They are simply gorgeous. While these are only my second pair of red lenses, I have to say that I am completely in love with them. I mean honestly, when you take a look at the color you can see why.
Look at how vibrant the I Fairy Dolly + Red is!

Now to the actual review. I don't know why I am looking away from the camera but I will try to correct that habit with the next review. Also I learned while editing this video, I apparently say "um" a lot. Perhaps because I am nervous.O.o Yet another habit to fix as well...

Now just in case you missed the breakout of ratings in the video here it is:

Enlargement- 9 out of 10 bats
  These lenses do enlarge your eyes drastically, being 16.2mm, and you will notice a difference. However they are not the largest lenses I have. But they are a solid middle ground in between. They won't enlarge your eye so drastically that it will give you an alien like appearance, but they will be noticeable to everyone.

Color and Design-9.8 out of 10 bats
   I am seriously totally in love with these lenses because they are so intense and super vivid. They are two toned so they are not going to blend with your natural eye color as  much as the 3 and 4 toned lenses. But in all honesty red lenses aren't the most "natural looking" lenses out there. While there are some lenses that are red that give your eyes a warm rich velvety look. These are BAM! In your face red. So these are perfect for dramatic looks, cosplay outfits, even Halloween makeup. You can wear them for everyday looks, like I do, however people will stare and whisper. So be prepared. ^_~

Comfort-9.5 out of 10 bats
   Due to their 55% water content, these lenses are really comfortable.I wore theses lenses at a local convention for around 10 hours and didn't have a problem. After the 9th hour my eyes were a little dry so carry drops with you if you are going to wear them longer than 8 hours. I also love the fact that they are bright and vivid like a lot of Halloween/costume contact lenses but they don't have the "pinhole" or "tunnel vision" syndrome that a lot of costume lenses have. While I love costume lenses, the tunnel vision aspect can be aggravating while driving and costume lenses are a lot "thicker" so they tend to dry your eyes out quicker than circle lenses.

Overall- 9.6 out of 10 bats
  If you are looking for a bright and vivid red lens you really can't get any better than these. Not only do the lenses dramatically enlarge you eyes without giving you an alien like appearance, they are super comfortable without drying your eyes out. The color and design honestly can't be beat. They are extremely bright and vivid and people can tell that your eyes are red from across the room. They are just as vivid as some of the costume lenses that I have and they don't have give you "tunnel vision" syndrome which you often find with costume lenses.  So if you want a true bright red lens that will get you noticed, theses are the lenses you are looking for.

Until next time my dears,

In the Pursuit of Fabulous..Review of Zoeva Eye Definition Brush Set

Hello lovelies!
   It is all ready June and Summer hasn't been to kind to me this first week. We took our little Dreadfuls to the beach this weekend and even under the umbrella slathered in SPF 50 I managed to get horrible blotchy burns on my legs, thighs and even a strange T shape burn on my forehead. Apparently the spray sunblock isn't my friend and the sun had fun frying me to crisp. And to top it all off I managed to eat something that caused the sides of my tongue to swell. So I am sure that I sound funny. =/  But the good thing is that I managed to do this review before all of this happened even though you only see my hands which were one of the few things that didn't get a strange burn pattern on them. But I have another "talking review" to edit on a pair of lenses so hopefully my allergic reaction will be gone and my sunburned face will be almost normal.
But here is my first talking product review and I wanted to do it on a set of new brushes, the Eye Definition Set from Zoeva. I used them for a little over a month in order to get a good feel for the brushes. So here is my first YouTube review!

Here is the break down of the ratings just in case you missed out on Youtube

Quality- 9.5 out of 10 bats
  These brushes are soft yet firm enough to do an excellent job of applying and blending makeup and there is NO shedding.

Price-9.5 out of 10 bats
  While the price has gone up since I filmed the review to 20 Euros instead of 16. I still think that these brushes are worth the money. As of right now the set is 26.13 USD but that is always subject to change with the changing market. From when I filmed the review the basically the price went up a dollar a brush. So the brushes are $4.35 a piece which is still a steal.

Shipping-9 out of 10 bats
  In all fairness this is coming from Europe so I think that the time and price are really accurate. You are going to have to wait to get these brushes. They have to go through customs and come from another part of the world so you really can't complain if it takes around 2-3 to get to you. And as I mentioned in the video, shipping a package anywhere outside of the US is super expensive so I am sure that it is just as expensive to have a package shipped here from Europe.

Performance-9.8 out of 10 bats
  These brushes do what they are meant to do. They apply pigments and pressed shadows beautifully.Often with too hard or too soft brushes you can't get enough or get too much pigment/shadow on the brush. These are just right.

Overall- 9.5 out of 10 bats
  Zoeva has designed an amazing product with this brush set. The brushes are excellent. The price and performance of theses brushes are fantastic. Finally the shipping is reasonable. I really am pleased with these brushes and I can't wait to get my next set from them.
