Review | Gloss 3-tone green lens

I just opened a new packet of contact lenses from Gloss Accessories in Sydney.
I bought these at the same time as the grey ones I reviewed ages ago, but they've been sitting in my drawer up until the other day. I actually really like these ones.
They are the 3-tone green lenses.

The lens on the right is actually inside out which is why it looks to be a different colour. It's possible to put them on whilst they're inside out and your eye will probably feel weird (it does for me) so best to check that the lighter side of the coloured lens is the part you're putting onto your eye. 

The colour difference is less obvious with some lenses so you can also tell by how it looks when you squeeze it between your fingers. Basically though if it feels weird on your eye, something probably isn't right and you should take it out.

The lenses from Gloss are more flexible than the ones I get directly from Korea so I actually find them harder to put in (they invert really easily). Gloss contacts only last 3 months and cost double that of the contacts I buy from Korea which last a year. Judging on how closely the Gloss grey contacts resembled the Puffy 3-tone grey contacts, I'm guessing that these would be similar to the Puffy 3-tone greens but with a larger diameter.

I really like these lenses. The colour change is pretty significant (although these photos don't show it so well) and they're more enlarging than my grey pair from Gloss.

without + with


Enlargement: 8/10
Colour/Design: 8/10
Comfort: 10/10

Overall: 9/10
I can wear these for ages without my eyes feeling sore, tired, or dry, so they're great for everyday. I might get the Puffy 3-tones once these lenses expire.

Hmm. Anyway I should study for exams now.
Here is a picture of my cat Sassafrass being adorable on the weekend:

Music | Missing Children

It seems that I have extremely talented people all around me.

All of my musically amazing friends are releasing their sounds into cyber space and it's making me most happy. Despite it making me a little envious that I have very few talents of my own, I love hearing their creations and thinking "I TOTALLY KNOW THOSE GUYS!" as well as seeing them perform around Sydney.

Another great band full of excellent people is Missing Children. Brain-baby of my friends Sophie and Dan, it has slowly grown in numbers as they develop their sound. This is a video they just released of them performing Paper Trail (one of my favourite songs of theirs, with an extremely blog relevant title) at Jungle Studios.

I can't stop listening to this song. It's so hauntingly beautiful. I love Sophie's enchanting voice, the beat, the guitar solos, the cello. Anyway, enough chatter. Here it is. Hope you guys dig it. ♥

Music | Achoo! Bless You + new Black Milk.

My amazing friends Ross and Ash just released the debut single from their upcoming EP.

Such a beautiful song and I'm so proud of these guys. I can't wait till the EP comes out in November. ♥
Find them on Facebook here for updates!

Life has been a little nuts at the moment. Although a lot of it is probably just me being crazy.
I'm not allowed to spend any more money on non essentials at the moment. Mostly because I'm going to Europe in December. So excited! But it is going to be crazy expensive.

Things that I have bought recently though:
Black Milk things because I'm terrible and can't stop. 
Glass Owl Swim & Dot Cap sleeve bodysuit.
