Hiii all! I’m back with another makeup review today with Cute Press– one of my favourite makeup/ skincare brands of late! 

P.s. If you haven’t already read my blog review on their Booster serums and sleeping masks, you guys are missing out. Read it HERE!

Anyway, let’s get back to business.

Like many fellow Singaporeans, my first encounter with Cute Press was with their popular loose powder. Many tourists stock up on several containers when they visit Thailand, before it was available in Singapore🤣

 

Cute Press has recently released a new range of loose powder- the Evory Snow Snow Translucent Loose Powder– to let you show off your real beauty ✨ 

Enjoy a naturally flawless complexion and a fresh youthful glow!

This loose powder comes in 2 packagings: their standard tub (15g) @ $20.90 and in a NEW portable loose powder tube (4.5g) @ $22.90

You can also take 10% off your order (Evory Snow series only) on Shopee with the code “CUTEEVS10” (apply in the voucher section at checkout)!

I don’t get anything from this code, just a little bonus for all you readers! ❤️

BENEFITS

The powder is ultra-fine and so weightless, it’s like a second skin and gives you a filter-like look. 

Simply sweep on the powder after applying your base foundation + blush/ contour for a blurring and perfecting finish! 

LOOK AT THAT DIFFERENCE.

Goodbye pores and skin texture, goodbye to all those little imperfections.

Let me dedicate a special rambling paragraph to the portable tube packaging, because I love it so much!!

This is the perfect companion for touch-ups on the go!

I love how handy and portable it is 💪🏻 No more carrying around a separate brush + powder in your bag– look at how cute and convenient this tube is!

It is also a lot more hygienic- I used to dump my brush directly in my bag because I didn’t want to bring out my makeup pouch (and it doesn’t fit in smaller clutches)- but this tube is so small and perfect!

Best thing of all- this tube is reusable, so you can refill it when it runs out! No more wastage- you can help save the environment while still looking cute 😊✨

I know I’m gushing about it a liiiittle too much, but this product has solved a problem I had for many years lol.

Cute Press really delivers on all their releases and I am a huge fan every time! 😌

I hope my detailed review will help you and inspire you to pick up the Evory Snow range for yourself!

It is really priced so affordably and feels amazing, so make sure to pick up a tube (especially the portable version) on your next shop!

OLENS Falling Lenses Review

Yes, I’m spoiling you guys (and myself) with another OLENS review this month!

I will be reviewing the OLENS Falling range! I have been kindly sent 2 colours- the Falling Brown and Falling Choco. These look a little similar in patterning to some of my brown lenses, so I’m quite interested to see how they match up to my favourites!

As always, stick around for a special promo code to take some money off your next order~

This subtle design helps to enlarge your eyes with a subtle gradation and soft edge line. The blended brown shades help to accentuate your natural brown eyes and elevate it for everyday looks without it looking harsh or fake. There are no stark limbal rings or iris patterns, so it is kept soft and clear! Look at how bright my eyes look!

This is yet another beautiful shade I would add to my collection for everyday looks.

Here are some other lenses that are slightly similar!

olens, contact lens, lenses, eyes, gray eyes, grey eyes, korea, eyelighter glowy, black contacts, brown, tint-i brown, tint-i gray

Tint-I Brown is quite similar in shade/ tone, but I get less of the ‘red ring’ look I complained about in my Tint-I review despite the graphic diameter being bigger in the Falling series. Perhaps how the colours/ edge patterns are different?

vivi ring brown, olens, contact lens, lenses, eyes, gray eyes, grey eyes, korea, russian velvet, secriss 3con coral gray, blackpink, blackpink lisa, blackpink jennie, blackpink jisoo, blackpink rose

Vivi Ring Brown most closely resembles my natural eyes and I do like the soft limbal ring effect, but I think the doe-eyed soft look is very nice with the Falling Brown and the Tint-I Brown.

Both Falling Brown and Tint-I Brown are sliiiightly more neutral-toned/ and less orangey than Vivi Ring Brown.

If you ask me which out of all these 3 I prefer, I would go for Falling Brown and Vivi Ring Brown.

It is up to your preference and I would choose them based on my mood and makeup look!

olens, contact lens, lenses, eyes, gray eyes, grey eyes, korea, eyelighter glowy, black contacts, brown, olens falling, olens falling brown, olens falling choco, olens falling gray

Falling Choco is a darker, neutral-toned brown that really helps to enlarge your eyes. I can really see the enlarging effect on this one as compared to the Falling Brown, and it gives a little bit of a limbal ring effect due to the tone differences between my natural eye colour.

I would say my eyes look extra bright and clear with this one, and this is a really nice pick for an everyday look, especially if you want to look alert and perky in the office.

You can see how the graphic diameter is bigger than my natural eyes more clearly here. The edges are still kept soft though!

Here it is compared to Falling Brown.

olens, contact lens, lenses, eyes, gray eyes, grey eyes, korea, eyelighter glowy, black contacts, brown

The only other brown I own that is more similar to the Falling Choco in tone and darkness is the Eyelighter Glowy Brown I would say the pattern is different though, there is a more distinct edge line with the Eyelighter Glowy series.

I think the reason why I thought the mood and tone was similar is that both lenses give me a ‘bright’ and clear feeling. I think you will know what I mean when you try them for yourself!

OLENS Tint-I Review

Hello~ how have you guys been? You know the drill- it’s time for another OLENS review!

This time, I will be reviewing an exciting new launch, the OLENS Tint-I range! I have been kindly sent 2 colours- the Tint-I Brown and Tint-I Gray.

The packaging is very much like how the lenses are- a soft watercolour effect!

This contacts has a very soft and blurred effect. It isn’t meant to cover your real eye colour entirely but blend in with it instead and give you a soft, misty-eyed look. There are no stark limbal rings or iris patterns, so it is kept soft and dreamy!

This colour is very beautiful and a bit like a ‘my eyes but better’, with a little hint at something different that people can’t help but take a second look at! The soft edge helps smoothen out and give your eyes a very fairy-like vibe, and it’s so so lovely for everyday looks.

olens, contact lens, lenses, eyes, gray eyes, grey eyes, korea, eyelighter glowy, black contacts, brown, tint-i brown, tint-i gray

My one gripe is that the graphic diameter is slightly too large for my eyes, so for the brown shade, it looks like I have a slightly red ring around my eyes.

I would perhaps compare this lenses to Russian Smoky Brown, but Tint-I Brown is warmer.

The gray is a very soft and natural shade, perhaps one of the most natural greys I own from OLENS. The soft watercolour-like blending is very beautiful and the colour tones still let my natural eye colour shine through.

I think I will definitely have to wear this grey in the future! The closest grey to it in my collection is probably Eyelighter Glowy Ash Gray, but without the limbal ring effect.

OLENS November contact lens picks- Scandi Olive & Vivi Ring Brown

Heyo~ I have done quite a few reviews for OLENS, and this time round I want to delve into a more targeted review (including some beautiful makeup looks I have styled!) with two of my favourite OLENS contacts– Scandi Olive and Vivi Ring Brown.

If you have read some of my other reviews, you will know I am always raving about a couple of staple shades in my contact lens lineup that I can’t live without! I’m a paying customer for OLENS too, because I love their lenses so much. I particularly love natural colours that elevate my dark brown eyes and give them a little oomph without looking too unnatural- I often get so many compliments and a lot of people think they are my real eyes lol (especially in the UK!)

If you stick all the way till the end of the post, you may see a lil discount code that will help ease the burden on your wallet the next time you buy 😉

I know I say this in almost every review, but the Scandi Olive is my eternal favourite and I get compliments on it all the time– people have asked if it is my natural eye colour a few times! It’s not too in your face, like my eyes but better (MEBB? lol).

If you’re afraid of it being too obvious, don’t worry. Indoors, it looks almost brown/hazel– from my experience, you can only tell it is green under bright sunlight.

I wouldn’t say this shade is very green, but like a more natural version of the Scandi Hazel that tends to look quite orange. If you are looking for a contact lens that is more obviously green, try the Russian Smoky Olive (view my review HERE). I love both!

This contacts is so so subtle!!

Do you know which side is my real eye colour?
Answer: Right

It is so subtle and pretty, I love it so much- it is pretty much identical to my eye colour, but I have lighter eyes tbh. For very dark eyes, I feel like this would be the perfect ‘my eyes but better’ shade if you don’t want anyone to know you are wearing coloured contacts!

If you want a bit of a change but aren’t that daring with blue or purple or crazy colours, this is the shade for you. The soft edge helps smoothen out and give your eyes a very fairy-like vibe, and it’s so so lovely for everyday looks.

This brown doesn’t look ‘orange’ which is my gripe with many brown contact lenses, and looks very natural in photos as well.

However, if your eyes are naturally blue/ green/ gray, you might want to opt for the Vivi Ring Choco instead.

Vivi Ring Brown (L) vs Vivi Ring Choco (R)

With naturally dark brown eyes, they look practically identical, but Choco has more warm/ orangey-pink tones that will help neutralise blue tones for a natural brown colour.

Look at how natural and beautiful it looks!

OLENS Vampire Series Review

Hello guys!! With Halloween fast approaching, I have a really exciting range from OLENS to share with you this post that will definitely help you level up your Halloween costumes this year.

If you don’t want to go as just another basic sexy nurse/ nun/ cat, OLENS has just the range for you.

Of course, if you want to go in a pretty costume, they have many lenses for you to transform to the exact characters you wish to go as!

P.S. Shameless self-promo first! If you haven’t read my previous review on the OLENS Scandi range, I would highly recommend checking that out first HERE. I have also reviewed their Russian Velvet, Russian Smoky series and the BlackPink + BlackPink Colorful Moments campaign, so if you’re due a major shopping haul soon– happy reading! I hope my comparisons will help you decide 😎

If you stick all the way till the end of the post, you may see a lil discount code that will help ease the burden on your wallet the next time you buy 😉

These contacts are very unlike anything I’ve tried. This range boasts a dramatic graphic pattern that is made to stand out- the bright colours are perfect for dramatic Halloween looks, nothing natural about this one!

As always, their lenses are very comfortable to wear, and this comfort allows for dressing up for a full night with no discomfort or dryness.

  • Doesn’t dry out my eyes even after a full day’s wear under air-conditioning. I’ve shopped at other brands like TTDEYE or Pinky Paradise, and Olens is by far the most comfortable.
  • Reasonable price for the quality
  • Fast shipping worldwide (DHL express). Honestly the fastest shipping I’ve ever experienced. My parcel arrived in just under 3 days after the dispatch notice 🤩
  • Good customer service and quick responses.
  • Regular promotions, making it more affordable. I usually stock up when they have bundle deals or discounted prices, and purchase more then so it lasts me quite a while before my next purchase.
  • Very handy search and recommendation options on the site. I usually prefer searching by bestsellers to see if there are any new designs or deals I have missed out on, but there is a handy #FindMyOlens tab that lets you compare numerous styles with customer images. Which brings us to the next point-
  • Lots of customer reviews and real-life photos to check before purchasing, so low risk of the style looking totally unlike what the promotional pictures show. I can’t stress this enough!! This is what I always look out for when I buy a new style, especially if I’m going to be buying several pairs.

This contacts has some of the largest graphic diameters I’ve personally sampled. The outer ring has a soft limbal ring effect, and the red graphic pattern is bright, with swirling bloodshot patterns and delicate iris patterns to avoid it looking too flat and ‘unnatural’.

Obviously, this colour is not meant to blend in in any sense, but I appreciate the varying patterns that help mimic our natural eyes and this helps the bright colour not appear cheap and one-dimensional.

The contact lenses were very comfortable to wear and did not scratch at my eyes or cause any clouding effect like the ones you get with brightly patterned/ more opaque lenses.

This silver lens is SUPER DRAMATIC and has a stark grey-blue-green colouration which really emphasises the otherworldliness of the makeup look you would go for. This patterning reminds me more of a much brighter Secriss 3con Natural/ Coral Gray, but with a dramatic limbal ring.

I have none of the issues I got with other lenses that have dramatically lighter shades due to the large graphic diameter. The issue I had previously with lenses such as the Scandi Light Gray was that it contrasted quite a bit with my natural eye colour, so even the slightest shift in the lens would reveal my natural colour.

I hope this review helps to break down the shades available in the Eyelighter Glowy range 🤗 I would honestly BUY THEM ALL to try!! They are all magnificent in their own way and it is so hard to choose a favourite until you wear them yourself.

Overall, I think OLens have really outdone themselves with this range and all the shades really mimic how these eye highlights colours would look like naturally. You can see the difference when you compare them side by side to the previous ranges! I thought the previous lenses were amazing, but the highlights on this range is *chef’s kiss*

These shades have bumped up to my favourites list immediately, alongside my trusty Scandi Olive and Vivi Ring Brown. If you are someone who prefers natural, everyday lenses, I highly recommend checking this range out!
