REVIEW: Pinkage Hair extensions and HANA SPC Hyper CIRCLE Grey lenses

Friday, January 21, 2011

Hello again everyone! Here is the second review of the week! I don't know how often I will have two in one blog, but for now it seems to be working! On with the show!!!


Oh boy, I'm starting to see a trend here. Circle lenses have been a fashion accessory in Asia for quite a while now, and has recently been finding its way over to the States, as well as other countries all over the world. These were actually my first pair!!! As much as I love my Aqua Gossips, these tend to be my favorite. The all out result of these are a little unnatural according to my boyfriend, but grey is my favorite color!!! These were really comfortable from the get go too. My only problem I had with them was that they were my first pair, so I had to adjust a lot to them. This took a couple of days of wearing, and adjusting. But all in all, they are my easier pair, along with more comfortable pair.

The color if very dark. Well, a natural dark is what I call it anyways. I had debated for a while on either Barbie or Hana. I don't know if I mentioned in the earlier blog, when you order circle lenses, allow to soak for a while before you put them in, I always take this safety precaution. A little late for that tidbit eh??

Now, let's see how these suckers actually look!

The good thing about these lenses, is that it hides your iris mostly, in a well lighted room. However, if you have a small iris, you can see a small outer line around the eye that is your natural color.  This however, is not a big deal if you have blue,grey or maybe even green eyes. I don't know if I would recommend it to brown eyed girls. Another thing about these is I think they are a very natural looking grey, and not very freakish looking. However like I stated before, my boyfriend tends to say they are cool looking, but you can tell there is something not real about them. But whatever, I love them!!! Now, lets see how the look not zoomed in!!

Still pretty!!! I think so anyways. Comfort is 100% And very easy to take in and out. I also wear these mostly over the 6-8 hours. I don't suggest doing that though, the next day your eyes will feel very dry, unless you drop them all the time. hana SPC Hyper circle grey are only 25.90 USD at Pinky Paradise, which is a majority price of most the lenses, the better ones anyways. I haven't taken a picture of the lense case that came with these, but they were yellow hippos. Cute as can be!! I also got these during Christmas, so my free gift was holiday earrings!!


Not many people know of the Korean hair extension company known as PINKAGE. They specialize in high quality wigs, hair extensions and bangs. I had become impatient when it comes to growing my hair out, because it's very thick and curly, and just doesn't want to grow at the pace I want it to. So, after hours and hours of looking up on ebay expensive hair extensions, I came across thee-shop, an ebay seller in Korea who sells these for quite a reasonable price!! After three days of looking, I ordered two different sets.

This is the 20 inch three clip (which means it's one piece, but has three clips in it) in. 

Posted above is what the actual clip looks like, and I got the color red wine, seeing I'm a red head.

My only complaint about this one is it is really heavy!! You have to really clip it in there deep for it to not fall out. As long as you aren't hopping around and acting like a mad woman, it should stay in though.

There it is!! I love the curl at the ends, and it's super soft like real hair too! Did I mention both extension sets are made of synthetic hair? You can use a certain ammount of heat on them, (I believe 200 degrees, though I have not used or done this myself yet.) and I often get compliments and asked how I do my hair.  When I tell them that they are just extensions, I get gasps and unbelief that this isn't my real hair. But now to my favorite ones!!! The pricing of this one was 37.99 and free shipping!!!

Ahhh, the 16 piece, 20 inch set. My favorite. Once again I bought these in red wine. I had to dye my hair a little darker for these to match, which I didn't mind at all. These are easier to keep in, and you can pretty much do anything in these suckers!!!

It comes with 12 two clip extensions, and 4 one clip extensions. The price for this set was a little higher, costing I think 57.99. But totally worth it if you know the pricing of hair extensions, especially high quality ones.  Lets see these in action!!

These get two pictures, because they are absolutley amazing!! The ebay seller thee-shop is very reliable, and I highly suggest buying from her!!! She has many more options to buy, straight hair, wigs and bangs!!!!

And there you have it!! Three wonderful items!! I must leave now, and get some resting and go to bed early . Tomorrow we go to St. Louis, maybe I can find something good there to review!!!

Opening REVIEW! Barbie Gossip Aqua lenses, Kamipita bows!

Thursday, January 20, 2011

Hello everyone! I'm at the hand of trying this new blog thing, for I really need something to do with my time off, other than sitting around playing video games. Since I buy a lot of fashion accessories, clothes, makeup and so much more, I figured why not review them? I know there are plenty of other review sites out there, but this is mostly for my friends who know nothing about what is out there! So let us start the review!!


I know what you are all thinking. Ever since the doctor scare with the Lady Gaga craze of wearing circle lenses (Which hers are not even real, by the way, it is computer generated. There is really no possible way to make your eyes THAT big.) that circle lenses are harmful, and will cause you to go blind. I, as well as many others will also tell you, circle lenses are just as harmful as regular contact lenses.   Over time, if you misuse contact lenses, you can cause yourself to have eye infections. Always make sure to wash your hands before you apply your contacts, and no makeup!! I strongly advise that part. Apply makeup always at a later time, because you may have to try a couple of times before the contact goes in. I know I do, for the simple fact I am quite a new user to lenses, and have longer nails.

I purchased these lenses from Pinky Paradise, a well trusted circle lense online store. Let me remind you, that these are not my first pair of circle lenses. I also purchased some Hana SPC Hyper Circle Grey contact lenses, which I will do a review of later. I always wanted to try the Barbie Gossip Aqua, for the simple fact I saw Jenny @ review them also.

When ordering from Pinkyparadise, you have the different options of shipping, on this order I got the FEDEX, simply because I wanted to wear them to a special event that was the next weekend. FEDEX shipping will cost you twenty dollars, which is far more than the simple 5 you pay for standard shipping. I received my order a couple days later, with my blue elephant lense case (Did I mention you get a free lense case everytime you order a pair of lenses from Pinky Paradise?), and my free gift!

This is the cute blue elephant case that I got!! You can always request which ones you want in the notes before you order, and they have so many selections!! But the blue elephants are my favorite...They always twist to front the right way, making it easy for you to know which lense is right and left!!

And this is the outcome of the Gossip Aqua!! This is a very natural looking lense, while still giving you the doll eye look. I like them for the simple fact that you cannot easily distinguish if they are a lense or not, the brown mix in the middle really makes it easy to blend in with your natural eye color if you have blue, grey or green eyes.  My only complaint that I have had with these lenses is that my left one is a little harder to put in my eye for some reason, always wanting to fold up when I do so. But other than that, when you have them in, they feel like they are barely there, and I usually don't have to put eyedrops in except at the beginning to  get them a little adjusted. The eyedrops I recommend using are Rohto, which come in a neat little bottle. 

Now! To see what they look like when they are not zoomed in on just your eye!!

Tada!!! Natural, yet you can tell that my eyes are slightly bigger than before! Like I said before, these lenses are amazing!! I want to try the green in the gossip series, or any other Barbie series, they seem to be very pretty lenses, and I have heard overall good things about them! They cost 25.90 USD (American dollars) plus shipping and handling, making these lenses affordable. I do not have a strength of prescription, seeing my eyes are perfect and I wear these for cosmetic reasons only. I don't think they make circle lenses for astigmatism.


Ahhhh. My free gift that I received from Pinky Paradise was a Kamipita Bow. When I first got it, I thought it was just a fashion accessory, to wear because it's cute. However, when I looked up more about them, I found out they are more for holding your hair back for when you are styling it and putting makeup on!!

The bow comes in a small package, like above. They come in different patterns and colors. They have velcro on the back of them, and they just stick into your hair! No clasping and hurting, and they are ultra thin too! Making the weight non-existent and comfortable. 

Zing! And that's how I wear them. Remember at the time, I didn't know they were to hold your hair back haha.   And there you have it!! Two items that you probably never knew about, that you can now try for yourself! Always remember if you do buy circle lenses, buy them from a trusted site, and always take care of them in a clean, safe way! You will never have problems if you follow the rules. It makes beauty that much more worth it!
