Geo Coloured Lenses: Geo Animation CP-A1 Review

Hello again. The awesome folks at Geo Coloured Lenses have blessed me with another opportunity to review their amazing contact lenses (read first review here). For those of you who don't know, Geo Medical is a safe and trusted Korean circle lens brand approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA), International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and ConformitĂ© EuropĂ©enne (CE). This time, I chose their Geo Animation CP-A1 for my Yoshiko Tsushima/ Yohane from Love Live Sunshine cosplay.

( Also, Please Buy Me Coffee if you want ❤ )

Here are it's details:

Price: $36.90 = $24.90!
Lens Code: SF-36
Diameter: 14.2 mm
Water Content: 40±2%
Base Curve: 8.60 mm
Usage: 1 year disposal 
Prescription: -0.00 / Plano Only
Includes: 1 pair of lenses + lens case 

This time, the package came in a brown envelope pouch. The shipping took around 3 weeks to the Provincial area where I live (and that is considered fast!).  

Inside, you can see all the contents neatly sealed in plastic with their brochure facing face-front. The brochure contains all their social media sites and you should check them all! (I've left a link after the ratings as always) 

The lenses were actually lined with foam to reduce the pressure it receives and prevent the glass from breaking. They also included lens cases with cute footprint designs.

The lenses are placed inside a vial that contains all information about it as well as the expiry date of the lenses in case you aren't planning to wear them any time soon. All GEO lenses are genuine so the vials come with a sticker with a hidden unique serial code that customers can use to verify its authenticity on the GEO Anti-fake website.

This is how the lenses look outside of the vial. They are very pigmented and the design is very clear. I could already tell that it will show up well even on my black eyes.

Pics When Worn:


Color and Design: (5/5) 
I love how these lenses look like. They have a very anime-ish look to them and closely resemble how anime eyes are drawn. The only downside to them is that if they rotate in your eyes, the design will look funny because the white in the right is below while the white in the left is above. xD 

Comfort: (5/5) 
These lenses were not that uncomfortable but they dry a bit faster. I had to put a few drops of lens solution to my eyes to moisten my eyes but aside from that, no problems at all. I didn't even notice I'm wearing lenses unless if I look in the mirror and see it.  

Enlargement: (3/5)  
These lenses make my eyes look so animated but it really doesn't enlarge it that much. They are only a little bit bigger than natural sized ones and I would really loved it if it was bigger. 

Visibility of Effect: (5/5) 
 It has a natural size but the pigmentation makes up for it. It will appear very vibrant in any lighting. It even stands out from afar and enhances your eyes very well. 

Overall: (4.5/5) 
I really love these contact lenses! They are legit anime eyes but smaller.  It is one of the most pigmented lenses I own and it really helps in making my eyes look more animated. I recommend this pair for anyone looking for the most vivid contacts.

Cospicky: Mikasa Ackerman Wig Review

Hello guys, I'm back at it again with another review (read first one here) for one of my favorite cosplay stores, cospicky! This time, I chose their Mikasa Ackerman Cosplay Wig  because lots of people have told me to cosplay Mikasa since the Attack on Titan  anime aired. I also really dream of wearing the Survey Corps uniform so it's like killing 2 birds with a stone :D . Anyway, don't forget to use my discount code "berrylonely" if your total is $50 or more !

( Also, Please Buy Me Coffee if you want ❤ )

(scarf is not from them)

Here are it's details: 

Price: $25.99
Material: made of artifact heat-resisting hair fiber.
Suggest for head circumference: 54-57cm/21.26-22.44" and has stretch strap to adjust size and keep tight on head.
Colors: Black
Length of the wig: 30cm/11.81"
A free wig cap given.

The cospicky team is always, kind, sweet, helpful and very professional. They really aren't intimidating at all and they'll get to your questions and concerns immediately except on weekends xD ( then again, it is a rest day and they all deserve a well-deserved rest) .

Cospicky is always really fast with shipping. They guarantee that your stuff arrives much faster than other stores and with free shipping on orders $30 and above. The parcel came in a cute pouch lined with bubble wrap to secure the contents and prevent it from getting damaged.

The wig came inside the usual ziplock bag with their logo and product code attached. Cospicky also included a Sinon bookmark and as always, they also provide a free wig cap with each order. 

(left: wig without flash , right: wig with flash )

The wig really really looks natural and I can guarantee this because I have natural black hair because of being Asian and the wig can pass as my actual hair if it had a more natural hairline and nobody would even think I was wearing a wig. The wig still looks gorgeous even when subjected to flash.
( You can get the wig holder here for $5. )


Color: (5/5) 
The color is very natural. It isn't too shiny nor too dull. I think it's perfect and very well-made. It can pass as real hair from a far. 

Shine: (5/5) ★ 
The wig is not that shiny. It has the right amount of shine that prevents it from looking too cheap and irritating or too dull and boring. This also gives it a real-like shine that makes it look more natural. 

Price: (5/5) ★+
I think the price is really worth the wig IF you buy something else from them. Getting this alone would have costed you an additional $10 shipping but if you made your cart total to $30, you can have free shipping worldwide and if you make it to $50, you get 10% off plus free shipping by entering my code "berrylonely" .

Texture: (5/5) 
. The wig is super smooth, nice to touch and very manageable. You can easily run your fingers through their wigs and the scalp is very neat and thick. 

Overall: (5/5) 
I am extremely pleased with the quality of their wigs! I guarantee that your money will not be in waste because it's worth it. I really recommend buying from them. I know they sell costumes and lace front wigs too so it's like a 1-stop shop for your cosplay needs.

Lens Village was very professional and pleasant to talk to. They would reply to your messages in a few hours and they answer any questions you' ask. If you register to their site, you'll get a link to the  tracking number and directly see the status of your order in there. 

The parcel came after 3 weeks which is pretty fast considering I live in the rural part of my country and it usually takes an additional 1-2 weeks for things to arrive here. Anyway, It came in a small brown pouch with bubble wrap lining safely. 

Everything was safely sealed and organized inside a plastic. Lens Village also has a contest where you can win prizes if you upload your selfie wearing their lenses in any of their social media pages, tag them and use the hashtag  #lvcontest

Other contents were a pamphlet from Geo containing information on how to store, wear and care for lenses , the lenses you chose and of course, A CUTE ANIMAL CASE. They have other designs in other colors so if you want to collect, start buying from  Lens Village now !

(other designs you can get.. I wanna catch them all...) 

 The vial contains all information about the lenses including it's expiry date. Since these lenses are from GEO, the vials get a sticker on it that has a hidden unique serial code that customers can use to verify its authenticity on the GEO Anti-fake website. 

This is how the lenses look outside of the vial. It is really small and natural sized but the design, color and pigmentation makes up for it. Since it came with a cute PINK ANIMAL CASE, I am 100x more happy with it. 


Color and Design: (5/5) 
These lenses are an exact replica of the Sharingan. Everything from it's color, design and details are just perfect! It only lacks it's powers and then you would really having them .  

Comfort: (5/5) 
These lenses were not uncomfortable at all. I was expecting it to sting like my other animation lenses ( I even had one still from Geo that stung) but it surprisingly was really easy to put on and didn't feel like anything. 

Enlargement: (3.5/5)  
These lenses are only a little bit bigger than your real pupils since they're only 14.2mm. I was hoping for a slightly bigger one but I think if that was the case, they wouldn't be like the Sharingan anymore.

Visibility of Effect: (5/5)   
These lenses show up nicely from afar! They look very red in any lighting and you can see the design very clearly. It can really catch a person's attention especially if said person loves Naruto as well xD. 

Overall: (4.5/5) 
If you're looking for Sharingan lenses for your cosplay or Naruto collection, I super recommend getting these! They are absolutely wonderful and worth every money spent. The design and pigmentation are great, they're comfortable and have a reasonable price so what else would you need?

Hi everyone! Today, I'm gonna talk about the new store I'm promoting for; The Twin Guns. They are a store based in the UK that sells Gaming, Comics, Anime and even Harajuku items. Aside from those, they also offer exclusive items that are locally produced and designed by them! Anyways, these are what they sent me.

The Twin Guns replies fast with inquiries. They have excellent service and are pleasant to talk with.

The parcel took 3 weeks to arrive to me but faster for countries in US and Europe (lucky people)! It came in a pouch with bubble wrap padding to secure the contents inside.
