Get To Know Me | 20 Fun Facts!

I have been blogging for so many years and I have never shared a Get To Know Me post up on my blog. I'm a sad self-proclaimed blogger lol. Anyway, I figured most of those reading, commenting and following you guys already know a thing or two about yours truly. But I thought it would be fun to do as you can get to know me more. So, here's a little about me.

#1. My full name is Nur Amalina Zulkiflly. I bet a lot of you don't know about it because you may not find it anywhere in this blog. I used to have a lot of nicknames when I was younger, I remember my friends called me Amel, Amy, Lin and the latest one is Lenne. It was actually Len but I add another "ne" to make it look fancy.

#2. I was born and raised in Sabah and I'm currently studying and living in Shah Alam. So if you are near Shah Alam, let's hangout! 

#3. I still don't have a driver's licence up until now but I have tried driving with my dad as my coach and I can't both regular/ parallel park.

#4. I have 0 piercings. I have never pierced my body because I'm so scared. And I will never ever do it.

#5. I have been wearing contact lenses since I was 14 just because I don't look good wearing glasses. I refuse to go to optics and get me some glasses because it will never look good on me.

#6. I have never played sports until I was in college because I hate it. I don't like to get sweaty, hot and I don't like people watching me play. It irritates me. I have never joined any sports back in my school days. If I ever did joined, I will never show up and play. So my first sport when I'm in college was badminton. To be honest, I didn't participate that much and I showed up for the sake of attendance.

#7. I love public speaking but get me in a room with 20 people in it and I will faint. #idontunderstandmyselfeither

#8. I have G6PD. I have been coping with it since birth. It's like an allergy and I can't eat seafood, nuts and eggs.

#9. My biggest aspiration is to be a teacher or an educator. I want to be like my mom. But as time goes, I found that I have 0 skills in teaching people or educate them. I'm the worst at it. I can be so impatient and a teacher requires a lot of patience. I guess you will not going to see me as a teacher.

#10. I was never the popular girl in high school that everybody will instantly recognize when you mention her name, that will catch everyone's attention wherever she goes and the hottest pick among boys. Nope. I wasn't the one. 

#11. I don't like going out, I'm a lazy ass when it comes to get ready and I get ready for hours. I enjoy sitting at home watching my all time favorite movies.

#12. In my family, I'm the one who has a huge love for makeup. I don't know, maybe because I spent most of my time at home watching makeup tutorials on Youtube. Now not that my mom doesn't wear makeup, she does and she will always go to my room to wear my lipsticks and play with the makeups. 

#13. I have always wanted to go to Istanbul and Paris since I was younger. 

#14. I have never eaten any kind of squid in my life. 

#15. I have tried to smoke once when I was in high school at the back building during recess. It tastes obnoxious and I was coughing real bad.

#16. I used to play the piano when I was a kid. It all started when my cousin sister leaves her keyboard piano at our house. I'm addicted ever since. When I was in primary school, I used to go to the music room all by myself and play the piano. But if you ask me to play now, I'm afraid I can't lol it's all rusty already I mean, the skills.

#17. I'm obsessed with cats. I love them so much! I can spend days at the cat cafes and make new friends there. The reason why I love cats so much because I used to treat them badly, especially the baby ones. I will pull their tails, I will roll them in the sand etc. I don't want to talk about it anymore. So I had a bad past with cats, this is how I "apologize" to them. I will treat them nicely, no discrimination towards them I love them equally 💕

#18. If I listen to a song thrice, I will have it memorized for a long time.

#19. I have a fear of glass. I mean its fragility, they can easily break into shards and it can cause injury. Ugh I don't want to talk about it more, it gives me shivers!

#20. Last but not least, I was once a kpopper. I was a hardcore fan back then. I was an Inspirit, I love the boy group named Infinite. I still listen to their songs though. My all time favorite song from them is this one:

I hope you enjoyed a peek into me. I would love to know you guys better as well! Till then xx

7 Deadly Sin of Beauty

Okay, another tag, another fun! I have seen this tag a few times lately and it seemed fun to do. Besides, I have been tagged by the awesome Erin. Check her 7 Deadly Sin of Beauty here. I love reading all the answers because I can relate to some of them. So, this is my 7 Deadly Sin of Beauty.

Hands down, my MYR6 Essence Lip Liner in 06 Satin Mauve. I know what you are thinking! MYR6?! That's insanely inexpensive. The second I saw this lip liner on the rack I know I must get it or else I will go home with regret. So creamy, smudge proof (slightly not) and super long lasting! This lip liner go together with my MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick

I don't know if this is included as a beauty item but this one right here is very flipping expensive and it is the freaking MYR169 Spa of The World Dead Sea Salt Scrub from The Body Shop. It was all the salesperson's fault lol he made me buy it. He was so convincing! I can't. He was doing all the demos and whatnot, and I said "Imma buy it!" Darn it. But the scrub does its magic though, it gives me the moisture I need because my skin is a bit on the drier side now, it hydrates my skin and leaves a very smooth and healthier skin. I love touching my skin after using it! To be honest, I don't even use it that much 😕

I have a love/hate relationship with the MYR21 Silkygirl Matte Junkie Lip Cream in 02 Glamour. My problem with this matte lip cream is the color. I don't know why sometimes I can pull this color and sometimes I failed miserably and will choose another lip color. There are days where it blends well and I'm loving it but I'm starting to hate it when it is streaky and dries up my lips like crazy and protrudes the lines on my lips and above all the color is too light for my skin tone! I have to apply it carefully and not overdo it or else I will hate it.

The hardest item for me to get is the MYR32 Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer. I still haven't gotten to write a review about this concealer. I'm too lazy to take photos so please bear with me. This product available in Malaysia not long ago, I believe this year's June/ July. Correct me if I'm wrong. See, they don't even have wide range of shade selection and have always been sold out. I don't know where to get a backup. 

As in, tasty? Geez, I have never eaten beauty products before lol but for the sake of this question I'm gonna go with my MYR30 NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream. It smells like vanilla frosting ahhh I can smell it for the rest of my life!

Primer is one thing I have never really bothered with. I have been skipping primer for months now because I'm so lazy to put a lot of products on my face. I'm always on a rush so using minimal products is the key.

A good foundation/ concealer to even out my skin tone is definitely the one. I have so much to conceal, I have so much skin insecurities and if a good foundation/ concealer can cover it up pretty well, I say why not? It helps me feel extra confident with myself. My skin has been acting up these few months omg- I don't wanna talk about it.

This has nothing to do with beauty products lol but I will answer it anyway! The ones I immediately notice are eyebrows, eyes and eyelashes!! My s/o's eyebrows be hella on point without all the tools and products. Ugh, lucky much?

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit, Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Foundation, Natasha Denona Eye Palettes, Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, Colourpop Liquid Lipstick, Kylie Kyshadow, Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette, Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer...... basically just the whole damn Sephora. (I know it's impossible)

So there are my 7 Deadly Sin of Beauty, I had so much fun as I'm playing 90's and 00's hits on Youtube. I'm listening to BSB, Shape of My Heart!! 💗 Okay, let me know what you guys think and you are welcome to do this tag. You know I love to read them!

Things I Do When I Don't Have The Mood To Write A New Post

Things I Do When I Don't Have The Mood To Write A New Post | Lenne Zulkiflly

There are days where I feel so sluggish and not in the mood to write. Let's be honest, you don't always want to write, no? Especially when you are a full time college student or you are a full time working mommy or whatever it is, trust me, you will have 'that' day. I tried to write but I feel like everything I managed to jot down is terrible. However, there are things I do when the mood to write is just not there.

Update old photos

I love to update photos in my previous blog posts just because it shows how far I have come to the journey, especially with my photography skill. Now, I'm still getting the hang of it, I know they are not the best however I'm doing it. Practice makes perfect, right? I just edit a little something here and there or I will change the filter of the old photos or better yet take a new one.

Update my previous posts

I do this all the time where I will check back my previous posts and spot typo errors, broken links or anything that seemed wrong. I made a little changes in my How Did I Begin Blogging post. I changed the photo and a tad bit of the content as well. I like to do this because I'm not the same person I was 2 minutes ago.

Things I Do When I Don't Have The Mood To Write A New Post | Lenne ZulkifllyBefore I edit the photo (the one in the outlined pink box)

Things I Do When I Don't Have The Mood To Write A New Post | Lenne ZulkifllyAfter I edit the photo

Planning ahead

I usually write a post outline about whatever comes into my mind. It's just an outline, I don't even have a suitable title for it as I can edit them later on. It's okay, nobody is going to see it. Honestly, it may be gibberish and horrible-looking but from there I will find a precious idea to create a full post. That way, I don't suck the fun out of writing. I love writing, and I don't want to hate doing something I love.

Re-read my 'glory' posts

Whenever I don't feel like writing, I choose to read. I read just about anything and one thing I like to do is re-read the posts I have written a while back. I will go back and read them one by one and I will get motivated by them! And I will re-read the comments as well 😉 It's not a major thing, I called it glory just because I'm still getting views from it up until now. Thank you so much!

Bloglovin' ftw

I save the best for last 👐 Bloglovin' has way better dashboard than Blogger, hands down. I'm so sorry Blogger but you have to step up your dashboard game. Thanks for introducing me to Bloglovin', Erin. My life has changed ever since! I am dramatic liddat. Anyway, Bloglovin' is like a playground to me where I make sure to goof around and enjoy my time spend hours and hours reading awesome blog posts and I'm moved by them. How can I not?

What do you do when the mood to write is just not there?
P/s: I just turned 20 and I am spending my birthday in front of my laptop working on my drafts lol

Would You Rather: Beauty Edition Tag

You can already tell that tags are some of my favorite posts to do. I don't know about you, but it's flipping fun to write y'know they are hassle-free, you don't have to set up your cameras and the whole enchilada. I saw this tag up on The Glam Surge and I thought why not another tag? Now, I have watched quite a few real Would You Rather tag by my favorite youtubers and it was legit hilarious. Here's one of my favs! You know what's better than that? There was a beauty version; I'm up for this! 

Q1. Would you rather lose all your mascaras, eyeliner, lipsticks and lip glosses or lose all your palettes and eyeshadows?
I would be fine without all my palettes and eyeshadows. I don't mind them all because basically, I can't live without my mascaras, eyeliners and lipsticks! 

Q2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again? 
I'm so used with long hair, I can't imagine how I would handle having no hair. BUT. Can you imagine the fuss of having bloody long hair, I mean if I did get my hair all chopped I can cover it with shawl/ hijab. Am I right? At least I don't have to worry about my baby-hair peeking through. And it will always grow back. Right?☺

Q3. Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
I would go with pink cheeks because I'm used to pink blushes. I have never tried wearing coral blushes so I don't know how it would end up looking on my cheeks. So, pink it is!

Q4. If you had a 1000 dollars to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
Such a hard question! Hmm, I feel like I'm going to spend it for clothes because I'm wanting a bit of a wardrobe revamp at the moment. I'm okay with just the average makeup collection y'know. But let's be real here, it would be so hard for me to not pick up a few makeup items!

Q5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
Well, another hard one. I would go for eyeliner as lipstick. Imagine how messy it will get if my cat eye liner is actually a lipstick?

Q6. Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?
Hmm, I love MAC but if I had to choose either one, it would be Sephora just because Sephora has a large range of products from various brands selection.

Q7. Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?
Definitely only use one eyeshadow color. I cannot use only one lip color though, you know me (or probably you aren't). My love for lipstick is very huge and I would be miserable without them. I'm fine with only one eyeshadow color because I have been doing it for years haha.

Q8. Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
Well, Malaysia has no season but for the sake of this question, I don't think I could live doing any of those lol so neither.

Q9. Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?
I would rather have dark nails just because in my opinion, dark nails are more wearable and work with most outfits. I don't really enjoy the look of bright/ neon nails that I have watched in youtube 😑

Q10. Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
I would give up my favorite eye product. No surprise haha it's Lenne we're talking about. I don't wear them everyday though so it wouldn't faze me. I love my favorite lip product too much, so they are not going anywhere!

Q11. Would you rather only able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?
If this messy bun looked like all the photos on Pinterest then yes please ✋ If not, Imma wear my usual ponytail because I rock them everyday.

Q12. Would you rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lip gloss?
I would rather never wear lip gloss again. As much as I love my lip products, lip gloss is somehow my least favorite in beauty products because that thing is sticky as hell. I much rather have pretty nails 💅

Q13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in every day?
OMG. I don't want to do either of these! Eyebrows is very important to me, they frame my face. If I had to choose though - I guess I would sharpie them everyday. I just have to take an attempt to make a brown sharpie work? Right? I mean, don't overdo them just like how I would do my brows everyday using proper tools and products. I can't imagine me having no eyebrows. Be the next monalisa is totally not in my wishlist.

Q14. Would you rather live without make up or nail polish?
Easy-peasy, nail polish it is. I'm 100% fine without nail polish because I rarely wear them.

I hope you enjoy! I tag whoever wishes to do this or hasn't done it yet. I would love to read them. Oh and I'm sorry for being MIA for quite a week. Had a little 'escape' to places I have never been and did the things I have never done in my life and it was legit fun. Till then 💖

What's In My Bag? [2016]

What's In My Bag | Lenne Zulkiflly

I haven't done a What's In My Bag post for a while, the last time I did this was back in October 2015 and I thought it was about time I do another one. In today's post, the bag I'm going to show you is like my 'going-out-bag' y'know what I mean? I have tons of bags and I like to switch it every once in a while but this is the bag that I recently use whenever I go out because it suits with every outfits. And it is also my baby. If you don't already know I love to read/ watch other people's What's In My Bag post/ videos. It is fun and y'know the fun little things we carry with us all freaking time. I love it!

So, this is the bag that I'm currently using (all the time) when I go out. This is the Melody Backpack that I got from Cotton On, back then it was quite expensive for a small bag like this. I mean, it is almost 80 ringgit but the fact that it has an amazing quality, I'm all okay. It seems small but it is actually quite spacious for me. I'm trying to not carry a larger bag when I go out because I tend to bring unnecessary stuff with me and it will be heavy as hell and I might lose my arm and that's not cute. Anyway, I like the shape of this bag, the simplicity and it doesn't slouch.

First things first, the bigger compartment. What I have inside is my purse, my makeup kit, my medicine (for my allergy) and my apartment keys. By the way, it is such a pain in the ass to stuff my makeup kit inside this 'giant' baby because let's be real, I carry quite a lot of makeup there. Sometimes, if I don't want to deal with the fuss I just bring the essentials like an eye drop, my MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick, and a compact powder. That's it.

Moving on to the front/ smaller compartment. I have my Miracle Essence perfume, blotting paper (of course), my boarding pass lol, my IC/ ID card and coins. The reason why I didn't place my IC inside my purse just because to make things easier for immigration purposes. Oh, I place my phone in this pocket as well. A perfect fit for my phone!

That's that. I honestly love this kind of posts, I told you once now I told you twice. Anyway, here's the link to my previous What's In My Bag if you haven't read about it. If you have done this, please do leave me a link below!

What do you typically carry in your bag?

40 Beauty Questions Tag

I'm pretty bored right now and it's been a while since I do tags like this. I was doing my usual blogwalking and I wanted to read something so I came across Erin's blog and I saw this 40 Beauty Questions Tag! I guess why not? You can read hers here okay, make sure to read it and just basically read everything in her blog. She has so many interesting things to read about. Without any further ado, let's do this thing.

How many times do you wash your face daily?
I wash my face during the day when I'm in shower and during the night before I go to bed.

What skin type do you have?
I have an oily skin. I used to hate it but I read somewhere that if you have an oily skin, it will slows down the aging process! Now you can look younger than the rest of the fam lol

Do you exfoliate? 
I do.

What brand do you use?
I'm using the Good Virtues Co. Glowing and Goodness Brightening Facial Scrub.

What moisturizer do you use?
I use the aloe vera gel that I got from Guardian as my moisturizer because I had a tough time finding a good moisturizer for my skin. The aloe vera gel works amazing on me so yeah.

Do you have freckles?
No, I don't.

Do you use eye cream?
I don't but I wish to have one in my skincare routine though.

Do you or did you have acne prone skin?

Did you ever have to use Pro-activ?
I believe I haven't try using that brand. Is it good? If any of you is a Pro-activ user, comment below! I want to know your thoughts about it.

What foundation do you use?
I'm currently loving the Sephora 10HR Wear Perfection Foundation. It doesn't cause me breakout.

How about concealer?
I'm using the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer for my under eyes and Maybelline Pure Mineral Concealer for my pimple scars, dark spots and redness.

Do you know your undertone color?
Yeah, I'm more to the warmer side/ warm-toned.

What do you think of fake lashes?
I tried wearing them quite a few times but it was so uncomfortable maybe because I'm not used to it. It feels like a 'roof' above your eyes y'know what I'm saying? But I think it compliments and dramatizes some eye look making them appear more beautiful.

Did you know that you are supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?
I do but sometimes I just don't want to throw my half-used products because that'll be a waste #SorryNotSorry

What brand of mascara do you wear?
Maybelline and Silkygirl.

Sephora or MAC?

Do you have a MAC Pro-card?
I wish!

What makeup tools do you use in makeup application?
Makeup brushes, makeup sponges and sometimes I use my fingers haha.

Do you use makeup base/ primer for the eyes?
Nah fam. I just use my trusty ol' concealer and set it with powder.

For the face?
As for now, I don't because I'm always in a hurry so gotta skip that.

What is your favorite eyeshadow (color or shade)?
Neutral colors definitely.

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?
Both. I use pencil eyeliner for tightlining purpose only. And liquid eyeliner I love to use is from the brand IN2IT. They are as amazing as Maybelline's and Loreal's.

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner pencil?
Just for the first time when I tried to tightline my eyes and I think that's all.

What do you think of pigment eyeshadows? Like glitter pigments?
I think they're cool and I wish to have one in my makeup collection. Just the thought of them glitter pigments will be getting in your eyes and will blind you afterwards... I don't know if I still want them in my makeup collection or nah.

Do you use mineral makeup?
No, I don't.

What is your favorite lipstick?
MAC Velvet Teddy. I'm not over it.

How about lipgloss?
I tried a lipgloss from Revlon and I would say it's not the best but not the worst either. Just okay.

What is your favorite blush to use?
Gotta be MAC in Dainty!

Do you buy your makeup on eBay?

Do you like drugstore makeup?
Of course I do! I'm like the bargain-girl.

Do you go to CCO's? (Cosmetic Company Outlets)
Never heard of it in my place though but if they have it in here, I will be the first to go.

Did you ever consider taking makeup classes?
I did, actually.

Are you clumsy in putting on makeup?
I believe that I'm not.

Name a makeup crime that you hate.
Overly dark, not blended, defined and 'kinder bueno' type of eyebrows. I really cannot stand it, I cringe haha!

Do you like colorful shades of makeup (lipstick, eyeshadow) or neutral ones?
I do but I never rock them that much especially colorful eyeshadows.

Which celebrity always has great makeup?
Lily Collins! And if I'm allowed to mention one more celebrity, it would be Jessica Alba.

If you could leave the house using just ONE makeup item, what would you use?
Definitely a lipstick.

Could you ever leave the house without makeup on?
Yes, if I'm too lazy to even wear a lipstick.

Do you think you look good even without any makeup on?
Of course.

In your opinion, what is the BEST makeup line?
They are all amazing be it high end or drugstore, please don't make me choose.

What do you think of makeup?
Makeup is an enhancement. It's not all about covering up blemishes, but creating looks that can enhance your features and boost up your confidence level.

So, that's that. I hope you enjoyed reading and whoever reading this, please make a version of yours. Till then x

Mini Collective Haul

Hi everyone! I have a question. What's best than sleeping in your very own cozy room? Oh boy, I am so going to embrace my 20 days in here. Haha. So, before my flight home I have been to so many places and I did some shopping and I figured I would show you some of the things I bought. Yes, I said some because I forgot to bring the rest of them home. They're all at my apartment. So, yeah. Let's see what I actually got!

  • Casual basic long sleeve knit top (Red) - Padini
  • Casual long sleeve blouse tee (Stripes) - Padini
  • Fine-knit cardigan - H&M
  • Denim jacket - H&M
  • Pure Seduction Body Mist - Victoria's Secret
  • 24 pieces makeup brush set 

I have so much perfumes already and all I need was a new body mist in my fragrance collection. It smells so fresh and romantic! It is my favorite fragrance, by the way. I wrote it here but in that post it was in the older packaging and now they have the newer ones which really sophisticated and sleek looking. As for the makeup brushes, I bought it at the mini shop outside the Giant mall. It was RM48 and it was a real bummer when I saw it at other places and they were selling it at much cheaper price. Hmph!

That's about it for my collective haul. I still have quite few items that are not included, so that means more hauls! For now, I will enjoy these items I bought, wearing them regularly. For about two weeks later, I want more clothes. Yup, it is what it is. It's in my blood. Haha! I love buying new clothes for no reason, judge me. How can you resist when there is a sale? And Padini? They have like tons of good quality clothing and with quite affordable price too; I am in.

So, what items did you recently get?

My Blogging Sins

I was enjoying my mom's nasi lemak last night, and I suddenly thought of all the things that I never have done as a blogger. I am not one of the successful blogger out there. I am a terrible blogger. I admit. I commit all of these blogging sins though. Let's jump right in.

I don't own white bedsheet/ white background/ marble background
White bedsheet, everything white and rose gold and marble, seem like the ultimate blogger trend now. I feel so guilty for not having one! I feel like I am not in the blogging community y'know. If you did see my background is a marble, that's probably the floor in my house.

I don't give a shit about SEO/ Google Analytics 
I judge my blog's success based on how much I enjoy writing it and how much people enjoy reading it. Lots of people seem to be overly concerned about their domain authority and stuff like that, which I do not mind at all I mean, it is your blog you can do whatever you want with it. Honestly, I could not care less. Google Analytics is one of the most complicated things in the world, and I do not deal with complicated things. 

I don't own any bullet journals
If you do not aware of the bullet journals, you can google it. I do not use bullet journal for my blog. I know bullet journal has the ability to customize and organize your to-do list, your next blog posts or sketchbook or literally anything. Here in Malaysia, they are just so expensive. It is not ideal for a notebook. Since I am a cheapskate, then I will have just a regular notebook, pretty colored pens and lots of washi tapes to customize everything and it gets the job done too so I am okay. But, I do not mind if you want to give me a free bullet journal though lol.

I thought I can run it alone
When it comes to blogging, you cannot just go it alone. Trust me, you cannot. You need friends, support and advice. Lots of them. And I do not do that, I do not work with other bloggers, I do not collaborate. I know successful bloggers do not go it all alone, and I guess I am not of them yet.

I have unstable blogging niche
I know I posted a lot of things beauty and I have a huge love for it, but sometimes I get exhausted from posting about beauty stuff. Trust me, it is tiring and burdensome to have a stable blogging niche. But I am trying! That's why I do not claim myself a beauty blogger or whatever because sometimes I do not stick to one specific genre. Or probably because I do not buy makeup all day errday. 

I don't own any tools or blogging equipment
I absolutely do not have any blogging equipment, I mean a basic camera? Nah. Photoshop? Nah. Studio lighting? Nah. I use my very own phone's camera and natural lighting. The phone I am currently using is Samsung Galaxy S4, and that is the only blogging equipment I have. I really want to invest in a good camera but I just cannot bring myself to get started. *sigh*

I don't have my own domain name
I think I made it clear that I am a cheapskate. I hate spending my money towards something intangible actually. So, I just stick to then. Maybe if money wasn't my #1 problem, gurlll I will do just about anything, ANYTHING, for my blog. 

So, that concludes my blogging sins. Now, let's hear from all of you out there. Do you commit any blogging sins too? Shoot! Till then x

Nobluk Contact Lens in Brown

Today, I will be reviewing the 16mm Nobluk Contact Lens in brown that I got from @dollylens_ that retails for RM25 including shipping postage. They have a large selection of contact lenses and affordable as well. I really recommend you to check it out.

This is my second purchase from @dollylens_ though. The owner is really friendly and my package came secured in a box and bubble wrap.  Without any further ado, let's get into the review.

This contact lens is surprisingly comfortable, for it being 16mm. They sit well on my eyes, I don't feel it slipping and sliding, in fact I don't feel it there at all! It is very comfortable and I know this is not recommended, but I manage to wear this contact lens for over 10 hours without discomfort. 

This contact lens show up really nice and "natural" looking, I mean it doesn't have over the top designs on it. You can refer to the images above.

For someone who usually enjoys 14mm contact lenses, all I can say is it has a very nice enlargement. 

I love this contact lens. I get quite a lot compliments when I wear them. I also admire how "natural" they look as well even though it is 16mm. 

Here's a photo of me wearing the Nobluk Lens in Brown. I will let the picture do all the talking lol. Let me know if you enjoyed this kind of post. Till then!
