Anime Grunge

(**Press Samples**)
 Circle lenses make me feel like a cool anime babe and that is all there is to it. I love wearing them and I love, essentially, to create characters based solely on what my eyes look like on any given day. On this particular day I decided I wanted to rock these dramatic light blue lenses. I was not sure what to expect from this pair, as I usually tend to go for lenses that are more "natural" looking. Surprise, surprise... I LOVE these! What are these you ask? These are the Princess Pinky Eclipse Blue lenses, and they are available from Pinky Paradise. More after the jump.

Neon Cyborg Eye Look

(**Press Samples**)
  Haaayy!! Lately I've been craving makeup play time. So, I've been doing just that these past few days.... I also have a serious backlog of circle lenses to share with you guys... HOORAY Multitasking :D! I know it is still quite a ways to Halloween.. But WHATEVER! If Wal-Mart can put out Christmas decorations up in October... Then I can certainly start sharing some Halloween-y stuff on here, right lolol? 
  
 This look is inspired by these awesome cosplay circle lenses I got from Lens Village. These are unlike most circle lenses I've reviewed in that these are more on the cosplay side. I really dig the animated look they have and how vibrant the Pink accents are. I wish I could go around rocking these on the daily though... They are pretty neat. So yeah, I knew I wanted to do something really edgy and kind of crazy. I wanted to do something that is not every day, or "normal". 
 The lenses are the Geo Animation lenses. This pair is among the smallest I own, diameter wise, as well. They are 14.2 mm. I found these to be really easy to put on. This pair was also really comfortable and gave me no issues. My general experience with Geo brand lenses has always been good, now that I think about it. They have always been really comfortable. I also had no issues with my vision being impaired in any way. I could see just fine with these on. 
 Since these lenses made me feel a bit like a cyborg, I went for a neon and metallic look. I felt like the prettiest robot girl there ever was ;). 

Products used: 
Too Faced Shadow Insurance in Candlelight. 
NYX Eye Shadow Base in White, concentrated on the eye lid area. 
Sugarpill Tiara (Silver)
Sugarpill Dollipop (Matte Neon Pink)
Sugarpill- Bulletproof (Matte Black) 
Sugarpill- Chaos (Shimmering Purple) 
Sugarpill Soot & Stars (Shimmering Gunmetal)
Sugarpill Acidberry (Lime Green)
Sugarpill Diamond Eyes (Shimmering White)

 I also used a bit of Lit Cosmetics Glitter in Beyond Pink layered over Dollipop for the bright pop of Pink. I used Violet Voss Secret Weapon as my base for the glitter. On my waterline is Rimmel Kohl Pencil in White. For my lashes I used my beloved Ellis Faas Black mascara. The giant Blue lashes are by Red Cherry. The winged liner was done with the Jesse's Girl Waterproof liquid liner. 

 For my brow I used a "base" of NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk then Sugarpill Velocity. I also layered a bit of glitter over my Blue brow. I went with Lime Crime Zodiac Glitter in Cancer. I'm pretty stoked on how that brow turned out for only being my second color brow, ever. 

  This is how I roll lolol.... Anyhow, I thought it would be cool to show the complete and utter contrast that is crazy makeup vs. no makeup. Also lens v. no lens. Eventually I will venture into full- face looks again... For now I just wanted to play with eye makeup and these cool- ass lenses. 

  Thank you guys for coming by today!! Who else is kinda ready for Halloween? Bleep. bloop. beep......

LTHP Quickies! Geo Xtra Diamond Purple Lenses from Lensvillage.com

(**Press Sample**)
Friday quickie!! 

 Today I want to share a quickie going over these awesome circle lenses that were provided to me by lensvillage.com. This pair is the Geo Xtra Diamond lenses in Violet. Violet is probably my favorite "odd" color to wear in circle lenses. I think the Purples can look really cool against my naturally light green eyes. As the name suggests these lenses feature a "faceted" diamond like pattern that builds from the outside of the lens inwards. These also feature a very dark outer ring. Which makes them perfect for the "dolly eyed" look. Because of the pattern, these lenses also give a very "bright-eyed, sparkling eyes" effect.
 The Geo Xtra Diamond lenses are on the larger side at 15mm in diameter. As I have mentioned in previous cirlce lens posts, I tend to find the larger circle lenses more comfortable. The larger the lenses, the more dramatic the effect. These have a great enlarging effect as well. These also come in grey, brown, green and blue.
For anyone wondering; my eye liner is Lime Crime's uniliner in Orchidaceous. On a side note The Geo Xtra Diamond lenses are available from lensvillage.com and retail for $20.00/ pair

Happy friday loves!

LTHP Quickies! Geo Xtra Forest Lenses in Brown from LensVillage.com

(**Press Sample**)
Good evening!! 

  This quickie post is all about circle lenses. I know circle lenses are not for everyone. Personally though, I LOVE them. I am a fan of that whole "alien-esque, other- worldly" look thing. I think it's fun to be able to play up the size and shape of my eyes now and then :D. The lenses featured in this post were sent to me by the lovely people at www.lensvillage.com. Featured are the Geo Xtra Forest lenses in Brown. Now, let me tell you why I love these....
eye liner: Lime Crime Lunar Sea. Mascara: Benefit Bad Gal Lashes
 These lenses have a diameter of 15mm, which puts them on the larger side. For many people these can take some adjusting to. For me, the larger lenses seem to be more comfortable. I only feel them for the first few seconds they are in. After a few minutes everything is back to normal. This can vary from person to person. Most circle lenses are designed for dark eyes.  Since my eyes are a light Green, these don't create as dramatic an effect as they would over dark eyes. They create enough interest to "freak" people out for a second ;).  
 The Geo Xtra Forest brown lenses have a good enlarging effect as they have a pretty dark outer ring. They are not a dark Brown, more of a light Hazel tone. As you can see on my eyes they kinda blend into my natural color, but still gave an interesting look thanks to the Black accents in the color pattern. From further away my eyes look Hazel-y, and huge! You can see a full face shot on my instagram. 
On Lid: Milani Brow and Eye highlighter in Matte Beige/ High Glow. 
  These lenses only come in "plano", meaning they have no "power"(prescription). The Geo Xtra Forest lenses come in variety of shades and retail for $20.00/pair on lensvillage.com. I really adore these. They are comfortable and look natural enough to wear them regularly. But unnatural enough to make them interesting and fun. Lens Village also has fairly low shipping, which is awesome!

Thanks for coming by!

BH Cosmetics Party Girl Palette- "Brown Eyed Girl" Look feat. Pinky Paradise Geo X-tra Bella Brown Lenses & Maybelline Lavender Voltage

(**Press Samples**)
Happy Humpday!! 

 For today's post I want to share this eye look I did using my BH Cosmetics Party Girl Palette. So, my natural eye color is a light Green. Sometimes they can look a bit more blue, sometimes a bit more icy Green. Therefore, I rarely wear Green eye makeup. I feel like Green eye makeup washes my eye color out. That is not to say that I don't love Green eye makeup. I think it is a beautiful color, and probably one of my favorite colors all around. 
 Enter my Pinky Paradise Geo Xtra Bella Brown circle lenses. I just love the look these lenses give my eyes (full face shots can be seen on my Instagram account @L_T_H_P). They add just the right touch of Brown, which makes my eyes look Hazel from further away. These Geo Bella Xtra lenses are some of my favorites. They give this dolly look that I am a complete sucker for. So anywho, with my newfound "Hazel" eyes I saw a window of opportunity to rock some Green makeup. So I did just that :D.

 Since this look was done with a 40- color palette, non of the shadows used have actual names. I prepped my lid with an eyeshadow primer and proceeded to work with my BH Cosmetics Party Girl palette. I stuck to a softer color palette for a slightly smokey look. I found these shadows to have a smooth consistency. Some of the lighter Greens were a bit "dusty" and required extra layering of product to get some good color payoff. The Brown and more neutral shades I used on this look were all fantastic and have great pigmentation. 

 Since I can't name the colors, I went ahead and marked them with an asterisk on this image I got from the BH Cosmetics site. For the cateye I used Jordana Jade Jewel 12 hour eye liner. For my waterline I used Jordana in Espresso Last. For my lashes I used Ellis Faas Black mascara. I forget what I used on my brows :S.

 And as a "bonus" here is the lip color that went with this eye look. This is Maybelline Lavender Voltage from their Vivids collection. On this particular day I prepped my lips with the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics clear lip tap and then applied my lip color over it. I am so madly in love with this shade of lipstick. While it is a very vivid shade of Purple I still find it wearable as it has enough Pink to take it out of Goth territory. 

 Is there a color family that you love to see on other people but don't care for on yourself? I think for me, it will always be Green. I don't have a problem slapping on every other color on my face, but Green tends to make me nervous. That said, with the aid of my beautiful Brown lenses I feel much more comfortable going into Green makeup looks. I can't wait to play around with this palette some more. I think it has a great color and finish range.

Thanks for stopping by today!

LTHP Quickies: The GEO Mari Gold Circle Lenses in Blue from http://www.eyecandys.com

(**Press Sample**)
Hey people hey! It's Thursday,
  
It's what?!! Thanksgiving is just around the corner. I for one am just a little blown away by how fast the year 2013 has felt for me. Did the Earth's speed pick up, are we spinning around the Sun faster? A lot has happened this year... Including my "discovery" of circle lenses! 
 Today I want to give you a quick, close up look at one of my favorite pairs. These are the Mari Gold in Blue by Geo.
 photo EosMarigoldBlues_zpsdb092d91.jpg
 The reason why I wanted such an extreme closeup is because I really wanted to catch the reflection of the beautiful, Blue, micro sparkles that are embedded into these lenses. These have a 14.2mm diameter and a base curve of 8.6. Sadly, this particular style is only offered in "plano" (non script).
 These don't have a whole lot of an enlarging effect, but they do give amazing defintion to the iris as the outer ring is fairly darkened. What I love about these is how natural they look over my light Green eyes. Yes, in these extreme close-ups you can see the "pixelation" of the lenses, but the fact is that they are beautifully smooth. The sparkles are subtle, I had no issues wearing these. They have actually become one of my favorite pairs. I love the soft gradient of Blue tones. I just love how beautiful they look over Green.
 These babies are so comfy. Normally I can only wear most of my lenses for about Four hours or so. These pretties I wore for about Eight hours. I had absolutely no discomfort or blurring issues.

 For full face shots you can head to my Instagram account (@L_T_H_P) or the Eye Candy's IG account as well (@eyecandyscom). These are available from eyecandys.com and retail for $26.88

I'm just in love with these, and kind of would love to have the entire family of colors. I think the flecks really give them that extra- special touch. These are just so comfortable as well. 

 Thanks for stopping by today loves. I'm so very sorry about my absence. It has been a sucky few weeks, but things should hopefully settle down soon... Mainly I just need to get my shiz together ♥.

Fun with the Sugarpill Elektrocute Pigments and Cold Chemistry Palette

Good evening loves!!

  Today I have a makeup post for you guys... Mainly because I have no nails ready to go just yet. I'm drowning in Fall nail polish collections and trying my hardest to get trough them as quickly as possible. So, this past weekend I got to attend The Makeup Show in Orlando, as many of you guys may already know, if you follow me on Instagam (@L_T_H_P). I always take these shows as an opportunity to really go kind of crazy(er) with my makeup, because no one judges you there, in fact it is embraced. I live in "small town Fl" and here ppl look at me as if I ate babies for breakfast because I am different....and awesome.. lol.
 I was super excited to finally get a chance to play with my Sugarpill Elektrocutes neon, sparkly pigments. I also got a chance to play with my Cold Chemistry palette, which I got a few weeks back and just had not had a chance to play with it.
 I also listened to you guys on my last #EOTD post and I am (with much trepidation) sharing full face pictures on this post as well. A lot of you beauties suggested that I show how the eye makeup worked with the whole face look so.. yeah :D.... Granted they are IG shots, but... baby steps :D.

Geo Princess Mimi Sesame Grey- Pinky Paradise Circle Lense Review

(**Pinky Paradise press samples**)
Good afternoon and happy Monday!! 

  I'm kicking this week off with something a bit different, a circle lens review. Circle lenses are these awesome lenses that usually give an enlarging, dramatic effect to the iris of your eyes. Circle lenses have been around for a while, there are SOOO many different variations of styles and colors. They can be subtle and realistic, they can be extreme and animated. 
 Ever since I got into the madness of makeup and caught sight of circle lenses, I had been wanting to try a pair out. I just LOOVE the effect they create, bit, googly anime eyes. The pair I am showing you today is one of my favorite pairs, I have four. These are probably my most "dramatic" pair, also the biggest in diameter at 15.00mm. I really wanted a set of Grey lenses so I went with the Geo Princess Mimi Sesame Grey pair. These were listed as one of their top sellers and I wanted to see why that was the case. 
 I absolutely adore these, they are fairly comfortable, my most comfortable pair actually. These have a water content of 38%, the highter the water content, the more comfortable they tend to feel. These happen to fit my eyes really well and don't bother me, even after extended wear. 
Not 100% sure what I used for this look. i think it was one of the newer Wet n Wild Spring LE Palettes. 
  The effect these create is quite dramatic as they have a pretty dark outer ring. They add A LOT of definition to the irises. I love the soft blend from the Grey to my natural Green eye color. From up close they look a bit startling, but from afar they create an amazing, intense effect. The grey is a great contrast against Green eyes.
Sugarpill look. All Sugarpill Chromalust pigments used. 
  These look great with all colors of makeup, though my favorite shades to wear with these are cool tones.
Red Cherry lashes
  I have found that if I kee my eyes hydrated during wear (Systane drops are my BFFS), the lenses feel much better. I have slightly sensitive eyes, so I cannot wear these for very long periods of time. Circle lenses don't necesarilly allow the eyes to breathe, it is best to wear them "cosmetically" for me.
All BFTE Cometics Pigments used. 
 Pinky Paradise has an amazing assortment of lenses, but when I was picking mine, I went with the more "natural" looking ones. I wanted to ease into wearing lenses. I can only say this.. I am HOOKED!!!! It is so much fun to create these looks, characters almost by adding some cool lenses.
Lime Crime Aquatenea Palette used
 I always get tons of compliments when I wear my lenses. People always think theyare my real eyes, which is pretty neat :D. Here are some full face shots so you can see what the effect looks like a bit better from further away. I just love the intensity these lenses give my eyes.
 Have you ever worn circle lenses? If so, which have been the most comfortable for you? I really want to get more, but I really want them to be comfortable and wearable. These particular ones I featured today are really comfy, but I want different styles as well.
