Review, EOTD - NEO COSMO Queen Aqua, Maybelline Color Explosion Pink Punch, L'Oreal Infallible Eyeliner Teal

Here is an example that two negatives could make a positive.
Pretty much I can't wear anything green and I don't normally wear pink eyeshadows because they make me look drunk. : /

I guess I am cheating a bit since the NEO Queen Aqua lenses are close to teal. (Teal, I can do.) ;p

First, the lens review..
You should probably know by now that I love NEO contacts in general. 
the 14.2 mm diameter is just perfect for me and they are all very comfortable and natural looking.
This Queen Aqua model is not an exception. :)

without makeup, natural lighting

The Queen series is very similar to Glamour series of the same brand, the only difference would be there is one more color blended in the middle part of lens which makes it a bit more natural.
However, these two series basically come in  the same color selections. I wouldn't choose Queen over Glamour if there is a price difference. 
(Some sellers offer them at the same price but some sell Queen series at a higher cost.)

The color and the design are very beautiful and I have gotten many compliments from wearing this. 
A friend of mine even commented that it looks like there are exotic flowers bloomed in my eyes. 
(Isn't that nice of her? ^-^)
They are very very comfortable. Wearing up to 8 hrs is not a problem at all.

As for Maybelline Eyestudio Color Explosion, I don't have much to say.
I think they are identical to the previous addition, Color Plush quads in terms of the way they blend and color payoff, etc. The only difference is the added glitter top coat shade.
They are very soft and blend very very easily but they don't stay true in color nor are they longlasting.
The unique nylon shimmer is quite attractive and definitely different from the classic Maybelline shadows, though.

I got this "Pink Punch" quint out of some kind of obligation(?) that I need to have at least one pink palette. lol. Of course this has been unloved despite the initial obligation. (or whatever)

I usually use pink cheeks and lips if I am wearing teal eye shadows and I like the color combination, so I thought I'd try the NEO Aqua + Pink Punch combo and it worked out pretty well.
At least I didn't feel like washing my face immediately and putting on a new face, you know? ;)

I am also wearing L'Oreal Infallible Eyeliner in Teal here.
This is a very nice waterproof eyeliner with vibrant color.
It comes with silicon smudging applicator with sharpener and the cap closes so tightly it prevent the liner from drying up. impressive.:)

another closed-eye look..

Thanks for reading. :)

    I'm definitely gonna buy some colored lenses now. You're making me drool over your beautiful lenses. :D Thanks also for your previous reviews on them, you're making me know more of them. :)

    The lenses do look natural, but also very pretty! I think your friend was spot on in saying it looked like flowers blooming. Love the eye makeup =)

  3. The Neo ones you've reviewed have all looked so natural on you and this is no exception. I would really like to try these one day. I love the scribbled outer ring look. Beautiful as always of course. :)

  4. Lena, I think you have a WINNER!!! I love those two eye shades on you. Looks fab. And how great are those contacts. Nice! :)


  5. Loving the Neo Aqua! They look natural but the pattern is so charming. :D

  6. i tried other brands as well but i find NEO lenses are best options for me. ;)
    i didn't like the spiky outer rings first when i tried NEO galmour brown, now they have grown on me. lol

  7. hi Kim! :)
    thanks for your sweet comment.
    one of the fun part of wearing different contacts is that i can try different makeup that i don't usually reach for. :)

    have a nice weekend!

  8. honestly i would recommend NEO lenses for those who are looking for comfortable & natural looking ones. they are a little more expensive, but i think they are worth it since i reach for them more often than others.
    i've recently discovered their Shimmer series and i am in love with them. :)

  9. thanks, Eva :)
    i thought my friend was being very poetic. lol
    i am glad i tood a chance and got a (sort of) green color this time. my contacts color palette is nearly complete. ;p

  10. sure! i am glad you find this helpful. ;)
    i highly recommend NEO brand in general. if you're not so much into huge dolly eyes but like natural beautiful design, they'd suit you very well!

  11. lol!
    But they look so gorgeous. Even without makeup, they still look natural on you. *jealousy* lol
    Gonna have one for myself someday. It just that I never met this NEO brand before, here in Malaysia. :/

  12. oh i didn't know. i thought in Malaysia you'd get them at more affordable price! then i realise the sellers whom i got them from are located in HK or Thailand. interesting...;)

  13. Yep. Circle lenses are VERY cheap here. Most of them are Dueba/Vassen series which have been relabeled. Neo is kind of *stranger* lol
    Anyway, love to see more circle lens review from you. :D

  14. lovely lenses :) & petty eye make-up ^^

  15. ah thank you, Fanny! :)

  16. thanks for the explanation! that explains why candylens doesn't carry NEO although i like the seller.
    sure! more reviews are coming. i can't seem to stop buying them anyway..lol
