Geo Mimi Cafe Macchiato Brown Circle Lens Review ♥

Hi everyone. So this is a review on a pair of circle lenses: GEO Mimi Café Macchiato Brown. This specific Geo series have unique designs and are all inspired by cafe drinks. The Macchiato Browns have a vortex-like pattern with multiple shades of brown, to imitate the drink that the design is based on. They look really natural at a distance and it also looks really cool up close.

I got these lenses from: 

Link to the lenses:

base curve: 8.6
diameter: 15mm
make: Geo Mimi Cafe
color: Macchiato Brown
water content: 38%
duration: 1 year
prescription available: yes
Comfort: 4.5/5 Usually geo's are my go to for comfortable lenses. These are relatively comfortable, but dry out in about 8-9 hours. I took 0.5 off because of the huge mm and some may not be use to that. 

Design: 5/5 It has a nice vortex-like pattern. One of the most interesting designs I have seen so far!

Color: 5/5 These lenses will look great on both dark & light colored eyes. I have dark brown eyes and they still give me that pretty honey brown color.

Enlargement: 5/5 Huge! :D

For a more indepth review watch the video :)

Cute & Easy Penguin Nail Art ♥

Hey everyone! This is my first time ever doing a nail tutorial and I hope I can film more in the future. If you guys have seen my nail polish collection you know that I am obsessed with nail polish. I love painting my nails different colors & designs based on my mood or a special occasion. But this past year I just got so lazy that I suddenly stopped playing around with decorating my nails. With this new year I am slowly starting to design my nails again. Since I haven't done nail art for awhile I thought I would start off with a really simple and cute design that is easy for everyone to recreate. This penguin design is great for beginners! I hope you enjoy creating this simple penguin design as much as I do.

Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Instant Nail Hardener
Bettina, Candy Grape
Clarins Vernis Multi-Eclat, 106 Ivory Shimmer

Miss A Suzy Inspired Makeup ♥

Hey everyone!! Its been so long since I last filmed an inspired makeup look so I thought it was appropriate to do a Miss A Suzy Inspired look. Miss A recently came out with their newest MV "TOUCH" & I must say it is really catchy! After Miss A finished their comeback Suzy took a selca picture of herself and I really liked the makeup she wore so I based this tutorial from the picture. Since the picture was slightly edited it looked like she was wearing gray circle lenses but it was actually blue lenses. I wore gray lenses in this video because I do not have blue lenses. Hope you don't mind! I hope you guys enjoy this makeup tutorial and I will be back with more inspired looks soon so stay tuned! :)
Products Used:
Luview Crystal Cover BB Cream
Sephora Airbrush Foundation Brush

Heat-Free Korean Moo Gyul Waves ♥

Hey guys! This video is a heatless method to achieve a wavy hairstyle really similar to Korean Mool Gyul Waves. They are big loose hair waves instead of bouncy spiral curls. It has a very elegant and classy look. I wore this hairstyle in one of my old videos and I got a couple of requests. This hairstyle is really great for everyday if you want to change up your plain hairstyle. I hope you guys enjoy this short tutorial!

L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadows ♥ Review & Swatches

Hi everyone! This is a review on the L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadows. These drugstore products were hyped on youtube for awhile now because they wre compared to the Armani's Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadows. The Armani Eyeshadows retail for $32 while the L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadows are only $7-9. Considering L'oreal owns Armani I wasn't that surprised that the formula for the L'oreal Eyeshadows would be amazing.

Here is a description of the L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadows:

Infallible Eyeshadows contain ultra concentrated colour pigments, for an intense colour finish. Additional binders (oils) coat and magnify the colour pigments revealing beautiful shimmer and maximized colour. The colour adheres to the eyelid as durably and comfortably as a second skin and lasts for up to 24hrs.

With a formulation that lies between the comfort of a cream and the ease of application of a powder, infallible eyeshadow melts gently from the fingertips to the eye lid on application. The result is a luxurious, velvety texture.

                                Here are the L'oreal Infallible Eye Shadows I purchased: 

Iced Latte
Golden Sage
Amber Rush
Infinite Sky

Midnight Blue

Perpetual Purple
(L-R: Iced Latte, Golden Sage, Amber Rush, Infinite Sky, Midnight Blue, Perpetual Purple)

♥ Me, Myself, and I ♥

Hello Everyone. ^_^ I'm Cyexquisite from my youtube beauty channel. After a lot of thinking and persuading, I finally decided to make a blog where I can fill it with lots and lots of product reviews, swatches, tutorials, hauls. It will just be a place where I can interact with you all. <3  I want to thank all of you so far for being so supportive of my channel and videos. 

What better way to start a blog post than to do the 10 random facts about me post. :)
So here we goooo... 

1.  I’m an avid collector. When I was 5 I would collect pretty stickers. If it was glittery, puffy, girly, hello kitty, I would collect them all. Then at age 8 I would start collecting cell phone key chains. I don’t know why but I just love to collect dangly cute key chains. Now that I’m older I'm starting to collect makeup, nail polish, bags...grown up stuff. :P 

 2. I have always taken really good care of my skin. Growing up I would always watch my mom put random stuff on her face & then before I realized it I started to do the same. Lol I would secretly use whatever she was using and then one day I finally got caught. She didn’t get angry or anything but instead bought stuff that was suited more for middle schoolers. In 7th grade I would always put on sunscreen and there was never a day I forgot to. That probably explained why my skin was sooo clear back then…ohh those were the days. Now because of my addiction to bb creams and coral blushes my skin is no longer the same. High school ruined my skin...forcing me to stay up late causing me to have makeup on for a long period of time. -__- I still pamper my skin every so often by exfoliating & using asian sheet masks but my skin will never go back to being as soft & smooth as a baby's butt. :P 

3. I’ve always had an addiction to asian dramas…Taiwanese, Korean, Japanese, you name a drama… I probably watched it. I’ve been watching dramas for 4 years now? Before I would watch 5-6 dramas at once and they were all the ones that would still be airing so I could only watch 1-2 eps per week. Despite the torture of waiting for new episodes every week it was my obsession. I probably watched over 100 dramas so far. You can probably name any actor/actress and I can tell you which drama they acted in! hehe :P 

I'm currently watching Skip Beat/ 華麗的挑戰...really good!! It's a taiwanese drama but Super Junior Si Won and Dong Hae are in it. Watch it if you haven't already! Click here :) I'm also watching Wild Romance & Dream High 2! LOL 

4. I’ve been told I looked Korean more than I do Taiwanese. I LOVE Korean music, drama, fashion, cosmetics, & food! Haha so I guess I don’t mind being called Korean. I just gotta learn how to read and write Korean & the next time if anyone asks if I’m Korean I’ll agree & bust out some Korean. Ohhh & I was told that I look like her…I don’t see the resemblance. Do I?? haha 

5. I have struggled with my weight and physical appearance since I was 11. I gained 20 pounds during my 6th grade year just from eating school lunches. I was also short at that time…like 5’2’’ so I just looked like a short, round, plump tomato. LOLL In my mind I never thought I was pretty enough nor thin enough. But during the summer of 7th grade I grew 4 inches and I also stopped eating school lunch and lost 15 pounds. I have gotten more comfortable with my body but I still wish I was a few inches taller or a bajillion pounds lighter.

6.  My ideal height and weight have always been 170 cm or 5’7’’ and 110 pounds. I think the perfect age difference between you & your significant other is four years apart. :) I’ve always been jealous of those main girls in asian dramas…they always have my zettai kareshi -ideal boyfriend- and I wish/hope there is someone that perfect in real life for me…lame I know. :P

7.   I’ve been playing piano since 2nd grade and have playing ever since. I recently passed CM Level 10 which is like the highest level for piano.

8.  My favorite color is pink, I know so girly :) I just love glitter, ruffles, lace, anything princess-esque. Despite my love for pink I don’t own many pink nail polishes. I use to change my nail polish a once a week. I base it on the holiday, season, mood. Glitters are my FAVORITE…I can have on a glitter explosion ALL DAY ER’ DAY regardless of my mood. If I don’t know what color to put then GLITTER it is.

9.  I hate the sun. Lol If you know me in real life I’m always the girl who uses her binder to cover half her face or the girl who always runs into the shade. Because of this I have an addiction to whitening. If I see myself getting tanner I bust out the whitening products.

10. I have never worn shorts alone in my life. I always have to pair it with tights/leggings. The ONLY time I wore short shorts was last year because of costume for my dance performance. The theme was car yeah I kinda HAD to wear shorts. When you first meet me I am actually really really quiet. But once you get to know me, I can be the loudiest girl you've ever met!

Wheww all right…this post took forever to write up. I don’t think I have ever wrote this much about myself in my entire life. Haha well I hope you learned more about me from reading this superrr long post. :D
