~My Experience with Lens Village~
The customer service was very efficient and prompt.I was also impressed by the fact that my prescription was readily available in the shade I chose.They shipped me as soon as I sent them the link of the pair I wanted.The lenses arrived in a good 4,5 working days.
~WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY ABOUT GEO PRINCESS MIMI AKA BAMBI LENS SESAME GREY~

The black rim circles the lens giving an amazing big eye effect. With 38% to 42% water content your eyes would remain relaxed and fresh throughout the day and you will feel beautiful and confident wearing these lenses.

~WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THESE LENSES~ 
The lenses arrived packed & rolled up with care inside a packing sponge.There is entirely no chance of breakage inside this special packaing material.

Along with the lenses I also got a baby pink hippo lens case,an Instructions leaflet and a care card.
As you can see in the first picture the lenses are sealed so before putting them in the container and using them I broke the seal and took them out with care.

\
Don't they look amazing!
As you must be knowing these are circle lenses,i.e bug diameter lenses that give your eyes a special doll eye effect.
After receiving my lenses I have worn them around 3,4 days in a week for the past two weeks.They are extremely comfortable to wear.Like usual contacts I didn't feel any irritation or redness of eye.I have worn them for a maximum of 8-9 hours duration & in that they have worked well for me.The best thing about circle lenses is that there is a huge variety to choose from and in my case I am loving the effect this lens gives to me eyes.The outer black rim accentuates the color effect.the design at the center merges with actual brown of my eye.To make your lenses last longer and staying comfortable proper care is required.
Without Lenses
With Lenses
I have really fallen in love with these.I love how prominent me eyes look with different make up looks with these lenses in my eyes.
Withe golden smokey eye


They also stay true to the fact that they give a dolly eyed effect to the eyes.Here are some more pictures to show you the complete look.


Can you see the effect the large diameter creates for the eyes.
They are available for $21.50
~Recommendations~
I would recommend my lovely readers to visit Lens Village & get a pair of their choice from the huge variety.They ship worldwide & will certainly not disappoint you.
You can find Lens Village on Facebook
I hope you liked my newest lenses.
Thanks a lot for reading.
Stay happy,stay blessed.

[REVIEW]:Bourjois Contour Clubbing Waterproof Eyepencil BLEU NEON~

Hi Girls
How many of you love some glam eyes.Recently I got tired of that usual black smokey eye liner look.I wanted to go for something new.I was really impressed by some runway models doing their eyes in neon colors.The idea suddenly appealed to me so much that I went looking for an eye pencil for myself that would bring some color to my eyes.
Look what I found:


Its this lovely eyepencil by Bourjois called Contour Clubbing Waterproof Eye pencil in Bleu Neon.
~WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT~
A waterproof pencil in vibrant colors.
Discover the new contour clubbing waterproof eyepencil,ideal for those ultra-crazy nights out!
The Contour Clubbing Waterproof eye pencil is the perfect finishing touch to a smoky look.Its waterproof formula is crease-resistant and makes for a perfect adherence of the colour. Its ultra-soft gliding texture enriched with jojoba and cotton oils intensely outlines the lash line.Remove with a waterproof make-up remover.Ophthalmologically tested.
~WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT~
This is the creamiest of pencils.Its just like silk.Its softest to apply.It works well on both the upper lid and water line.I have already fallen in love with this eye pencil.I am thinking of buying one or more of other shades available in the same range.This eyeliner that I have here is called Bleu Neon.Its a very pretty metallic shade with shimmer in it.When you look closely at the tip of the pencil(sorry,no picture taken)you see loads of small glitter in it.But when you apply it on your eyelid it is a uniform application.
This shade is 45 Bleu Neon.There are 6 more shades available in the range.
My eyes fall in the very sensitive category eyes.If I share my eyepencil or mascara with anyone I am bound to get an eye infection.I am also a regular lens user in everyday life.As I use prescription lenses its equally important for me to use lenses friendly products.I hate when I get watery eyes when I wear a certain eyepencil on my waterline.The small particles sometimes enter my eye and cause irritation.This pencil is opthalmologically tested and it literally doesn't give me any kind of irritation and also as the formula is really creamy so no grainy particles come off.Its good to wear on the waterline as well.But I prefer to use it on my upper lid.The product can be used for an year and a half i.e 18 months after it comes into use.
This eyepencil is waterproof as it says.And to add to the good points its smudgeproof as well.It stays put on the eyelids for a good 10,11 hours.Though after that on oily eyelids like mine it does transfer a bit to the upper area.But overall its formula is very long lasting and has a good staying power.I love how it brightens up my eye.You can wear it alone on upper eye as I have done in the swatches below.You can also glide it just below the lower lashes to create an intense look.Combined with black eyeliner on the upper lid it looks awesome as well.
The pencil is made of plastic and is sharpenable.But has no attached sharpener with it.A usual cosmetic sharpener is good enough to sharp it.
Here is a swatch of the lovely BLEU NEON on my hand.Cant help but keep looking at how pretty it is.
Here are some pictures to show you how this eyepencil looks on my eyes.
I am not wearing any eyeshadow base and mascara in the pictures.




On my Eyes:Contour Clubbing Waterproof Eye pencil BLEU NEON
On my Face:Revlon Photoready Foundation
On my Lips:Color Studio Pure Matt Lipstick in LUST
Recommendations:
I totally recommend this eye pencil to all you eyeliner lovers.This is not to be missed if you are looking for a really good quality eye pencil that stays put for hours without smudging.Its pigmentation is great.You will not regret buying it.There are so many colors to choose from.I literally want to collect all of them!
I bought this from Shams Islamabad for Rs.830/-
You can get yours from any Bourjois counter at a drugstore near you.
For online orders within Pakistan check out Justforgirls.pk & Beauutyarena.

Thanks a lot for reading.
Stay happy ,stay blessed.
Love,

~Review:Hello Glow Moonlight Dust Calming Cleansing Powder~

Another product review is here.Lately Hello Glow products have been spotted here and there on different beauty blogs.I have tried Hello Glow Whitening Plus Facial Polish.The product I am reviewing today is the second product that I have used from Hello Glow.This has been on my shelf for nearly a month now before I thought it could be reviewed.
Its the Hello Glow Moonlight Dust Calming Cleansing Powder.
~WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT~
What is it?
A gloriously creamy facial polish to soothe and refresh stressed and congested skin

What's in it?
100% natural combination of Chamomile Powder, Organic Wheat Flour, Milk Powder, Potato Starch, Rice Powder, Olive and Chamomile Oil.

How does it work?
Chamomile is an amazing flower with wonderful properties that reduces skin damage caused by free radicals, (wrinkles, fine lines),and soothes skin irritations. Combined with potato starch, a substantial source of Vitamin C, it lightens skin tone, and reduces dark under eye circles .It helps to get rid of blackheads and provide acne relief. Wheat flour contains vitamin E, an antioxidant that promotes cell respiration, stimulates the production of anti-inflammatory compounds and slows the aging process of the skin. Olive oil is a miracle oil as it softens your skin without clogging pores. 

How to use it?
Pour some powder onto wet hands. Rub together and apply all over moistened face. Massage gently for 30 seconds and rinse off with cool water. Pat dry.
~WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT~
After falling in love with the Whitening Plus Facial Polish,I was expecting good from this product as well.Upon opening the bottle containing this grainy powder,a strong smell enveloped me.I felt like I was in the kitchen cooking something.I don't like the smell at all.Its nowhere near to a calming scent.Then I paid heed to ingrediants and there was the secret behind the strong aroma.
Lets see

So many ingrediants from the kitchen.

The grainy powder when mixed with water makes a good paste that I applied on my face.
It cleanses the face and gives it a smooth and soft feeling.Its a good product for people with oily or senstive skin because it doesn't give out any breakouts or irritations.I like it but don't like it like the whitening plus only due to its strong smell.Strong smells sometimes give me a headache.It cleanses my skin and makes it softer but it doesn't give that brightening effect that stays for longer.
The product is present in an air tight bottle with a screw cap.
This bottle holds 100 mg product and is available at Rose Link UK for ₤9.99.
 International orders and   ₤4.99 within UK.
For orders within Pakistan go to Just4girls.pk and BeautyArena
You can also find them on Facebook
~Recommendations~
You may want to get it if you are completely into natural products otherwise there is nothing very special about it.It does give you soft and cleansed skin but then a very normal facewash or scrub can do the same for you.I would have recommended this if it had a lighter and better smell & some lasting results.
Thanks a lot for reading.
Stay happy always.
Love,
Areej
