Bunny Color Brown Lens Review {Klenspop Sponsored!}~

Hello!
I'm excited to announce a new sponsor of mine ^.^ 
It's Klenspop! They're a circle lens shop based in Korea, and they have a large variety of circle lenses in many different colors and diameters. They also have a small selection of makeup and lens cases~
So, thank you Klenspop for sending me these lenses for review!
On to the lenses themselves~
I got send the Bunny Color Brown lenses~
Their stock photo~
The lenses came in approximately two weeks, which is the usual time for lenses to arrive.
Here's some basic info about these lenses~
Brand: Lenspop
Diameter: 14.0 mm
Graphic Diameter: 13.8 mm
Water Content: 38%
Base curve: 8.6 mm
Shelf-life: 1 Year

The diameter of these lenses is smaller than of others that I've worn in the past, but I find that it gives the eyes a really natural, but at the same time still enlarging look.
The lenses arrived in a really cute small cardboard box. The lenses were thoroughly bubble wrapped and so they didn't wobble around in the box, which I find to be a good thing. I'm always paranoid that my lenses might break in transit.
The box! (it fit into the palm of my hand~)
Very secure~
Bubble wrapped!
In the bubble wrap, there was a cute box~ On the reverse side there's a useful manual describing how to put in contacts. Good for beginners ^_^

I like how she's wearing a tiara :3
On the inside of the box, there's a small plastic bag with a pair of tweezers, a contact lens case, and the lenses of course!
It's nice how they include necessary things~
I never use tweezers to pick up my lenses, but they were useful for getting the lenses out of the vials c:
They're cute~
The lens case isn't all cute and animal shaped, but I do like how it's clear (and pink!). That way you can actually see what the lenses are~
And it's nice that they have letters~
The vials themselves are super cute ^.^ I love the bunny girl that's on them.
I think these are the cutest vials I've ever gotten >u<

Yeah my vision isn't that good don't judge x3
Now, on to the actual lenses themselves~
I really love the design on these. It looks all pretty and crystalline~
They look so pretty <3
Here's a closeup so you can see the design better c:
Yay!
It does look a bit pixely, but on the eyes it's hardly noticeable (and the pixels are no worse than how they are on most lenses). The design mostly consists of an orangey brown with some chocolate brown too. Since the color is placed in spikes, it has a very nice gradual fade which doesn't make the color of the lenses look too fake.

The enlargement isn't huge, since the diameter of these lenses is only 14.0 mm. However, they are ever so slightly enlarging, which gives a cute and yet natural look at the same time~ Your eyes are bigger, but at the same time they're not so big that if you don't wear a lot of eye makeup you end up looking like an alien. I can have subtle eye makeup or I can have lots of eye makeup and my eyes look great either way~

Anyways, words can only tell so much, so here are photos at different ranges and at different lighting!
Close Up
Window light
Flash
Dim room lighting
Yellow lighting
Both Eyes
Window light
Flash
Dim light
Full Face
Window light
Yellow light (I look really tired cause this was the first day of school after vacation.. and that's never a fun day)
Dim room lighting (and bear ears!)
Hearts :3
So, as you can see, the lenses can look really different depending on the lighting. In dim light it's more enlarging and you can't quite see the color, and when you take a photo with flash it's quite bright~ The part of my eyes around the pupil is approximately the same color as the lenses, so the color ends up looking quite uniform (except for a small ring of hazel in the center).
And on to something which matters a lot too: comfort! These are really comfortable lenses! Since the diameter isn't huge, they don't dry out my eyes, which I find to be very good (there's nothing worse than dry eyes). I can wear them for fourteen hours and I have no problems. If you do have problems with lenses however though, please take them out! There's no point in suffering and it could damage your eyes ;~; (This applies to all lenses, not just these~).
Anyways, I think that just about sums it up! I really love these lenses and I've been wearing them frequently (since they're more natural than my usual circle lenses).

Thanks for reading! Have a lovely day (or evening- whenever it is you're reading this) <3

P.S: Lots of people have been getting these lenses for review, so if you got them too...
What did you think of these lenses?

My Weekend {H-Mart and Crafting}~

Helloo~
There have been crazy amounts of snow here in the northeast
So my weekend is now 4 days long :3 The snow is raging outside right now, and so school was canceled for today and tomorrow. Yay!
I thought I'd just do a mini update~
This weekend was pretty uneventful in all honesty x3 I finished Pokemon X, the second season of Psycho-Pass, and Kobo Abe's novel The Woman in the Dunes(which I highly recommend).
I also went to H-Mart yesterday and got a bunch of yummy stuff :3 I thought I'd share some of the more interesting things that I got with you guys c:
Citron tea
I love this stuff. So much. And the jar is so pretty! Once I'm done with it maybe I'll keep pens in it or something c:
Instant Milk Tea
I saw this and I thought it was really cool! It's teabags with powdered milk and sugar in them, so you can instantly have milk tea ^_^ This is the Earl Grey variety- they had 2 other sorts as well~ I know that they also make rose milk tea, which I really want to try. It's insanely sweet though >_>

Meltyblend Fruity Strawberry Chocolates
Omigosh these are delicious *u* They're tiny and there are only fifteen but that's okay x3

Peach yogurt gum!
I think it's so cool how it closes with a magnetic strip :3
Green Tea Korean Pancakes
These are super tasty :3 I got them to eat for breakfast~ On the inside there's a cinnamon filling that's really yummy. It does get very hot though... several times I've burned my tongue ;n;
Seaweed snacks! Very crispy and yummy :3
Pokemon soup! My sister and I love these :3
Red bean soup with mochi
It's sweet! And very good food for this kind of cold miserable weather
Syn-ake Sheet mask (I dunno why they couldn't just spell it 'snake')
My Beauty Diary's Collagen Firming Sheet Masks
I absolutely love these masks. They always make my skin so nice and soft ^.^ I first tried one last year when I went to New York, and I was finally able to obtain some more :3

Anyways, that's all I got from H-Mart, so moving on~
This weekend I've been crafting quite a bit. A few days ago a lolita sewing book that I ordered from Ebay arrived in the mail! I'm super happy about it :3 I haven't yet gotten around to making any substantial items (both because I don't have enough fabric and because I'm worried about the instructions being completely in Japanese), but I plan on doing that soon ^_^ Maybe during my next school break?
Anyways, here's the book :3
The girls on the cover look so pretty ^_^
There are several volumes of this book, but I liked the patterns in this one the most so I got it c: Almost everything is in Japanese, which will make the projects more challenging, but at least there are diagrams ^_^ There are also patterns c:
I like the JSK on the right!
I feel like I'd never be able to pull this off, but it's super cute x3
So yeah, I made lots of accessories this weekend x3 From the book I made a bow and a 2-way clip~
Lacy Cherry Blossom Hair Clip
Felted Checker Cookie Clip~
The cookie clip was super fun to make c: I hadn't done needle felting in quite some time so it was nice to be able to do it again ^_^ I can use it as both a hairclip and as a brooch~
I also made some ribbon-tie bows. I dunno when I'll use them, but they're fuzzy!
So soft ;u;
So yep, that just about concludes what I've been doing x3 Clearly I'm quite lazy. But at least now I have food! ^_^
Anyways thanks for reading! Sorry that this post had some many pictures >_>
Ciao loves!
