Alcon Dailies Freshkon Illuminate

Dailies Freshkon Illuminate reveals your inner beauty through your eyes!
These lenses make your eyes look bigger, beautiful and totally natural looking. Created especially for Asian women, these lenses blend seamlessly with your eyes, darken and enlarge the iris for a naturally bigger, brighter look.

Diameter: 13.8mm(slightly bigger than natural iris)
Base curve: 8.6mm
Daily contacts; each pack comes with 10 contacts(5 pairs for 5 days)


It's around RM35/box of 10 contacts




Rich brown.


Instructions were in the inner side of the box.







BEFORE


AFTER
As you can see, it slightly enlarges the iris but not too extravagant like other coloured contacts. It has minimal enlarging effect. If you're looking for a natural coloured contacts to make your eyes look a bit bigger without people noticing you're wearing cosmetic contacts, this is the one you're looking for.




Left- with contacts. Right- Without





Dailies Freshlook Illuminate is the epitome of the Four Cs of Asian Eye Beauty: Centration, Comfort, Convenience and Colour

Centration- Freshlook Illuminate is created for better centred non slip lens. This is to maintain lens stability therefore providing stable vision and comfort. Now, you won't experience double vision or discomfort of the lens rotating in the eyes when blinking.

Comfort- Freshlook Illuminate contact lenses contain a unique AquaRelease moisturising agent that's gradually released throughout the day. So your eyes will feel and look fresh and beautiful all day without dryness problem.

Convenience- Dailies Freshlook Illuminate is a daily disposable wear. Thus, at the end of the day, the pair of contacts are discarded leaving no room for bacteria infection if not washed properly and less usage of contacts care solution needed. All you need to do daily is open the pack and put em' on!

Colour- Dailies Freshlook Illuminate comes in two colours of Rich Brown and Jet Black to suit Asian eyes. The contacts have a unique starburst pattern, which blend the coloured ring seamlessly into the iris, for eyes to look bigger, more distinctive and naturally beautiful. Its dual-layer printing technology matches the natural brown and black shades of Asian eyes perfectly. The manufacturing of the contact lenses use LightStream Lens Technology and locks the colour pigment inside the lens, so that it has no direct contact with the eyes.






So let me lay down the nitty gritty:

Pros:
1. Does not dry up my eyes. It remained moisturised the entire day.

2. With the newest technology of AquaRelease and making lenses stable in the eyes with the centration effect, contacts felt so much more comfortable in the eyes. In fact, it felt like I wasn't wearing anything.

3. Natural and brighter looking- does not look fake. It also makes the iris more opaque and bold. Great for tired looking eyes to open up. 


Cons:
1. The contacts are very thin hence, it tore quite easily. After taking it off sometimes, I realised, I've torn the contacts and this rarely happened to me previously.

Must handle with extra care


2. The colour didn't really pop because brown on black didn't provide much effect and the diameter wasn't much bigger than the natural pupil size so the 'big eyes' effect wasn't prominent. However, it's a pro for those looking for a natural effect. But because I was only looking for the cosmetic effect as I'm wearing the ones with no power, I prefer a bigger diameter contacts.

3. It's quite hard to take out. I am not a first time contact lens user so I know how to wear my contacts and take it off easily. However, this time, it proved harder for me to 'pinch' my contacts out. I thought it was just me and that I forgot to use contacts after Lasik, but after reading other reviews, I found out I was not the only one having this problem.


All in all, if you're looking for a natural, brighter and bigger looking eyes, Alcon's Freshkon Illuminate is something you might want to try out =)

Try

An inspirational song to all girls out there





"...You don't have to try so hard
You don't have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don't have to change a single thing

You don't have to try, try, try, try
You don't have to try, try, try, try
You don't have to try, try, try, try
You don't have to try
You don't have to try...


....Wait a second,
Why, should you care, what they think of you
When you're all alone, by yourself, do you like you?
Do you like you?...

...Take your make-up off
Let your hair down
Take a breath
Look into the mirror, at yourself
Don't you like you?
'Cause I like you"

Happy Monday peeps! xx

GUESS Fall 2014 collection

GUESS brought a Nashville-inspired party to Kuala Lumpur in celebration of the latest Fall 2014 Collection. This season, GUESS is taking us on the journey to Music City; Nashville, Tennessee, where the true American soul resides and country music meets rock and roll!

The 'Nashville's Most Wanted Denim Event' held at GUESS, Pavillion introduced the Fall 2014 collection and the outlet store was transformed into a cowboy town!
Dresscode was none other than Nashville Cowboy & Cowgirl ^^




Howdy!


The atmosphere was made even more authentic with live band performance by The Dotter’s Division.









Desserts y'all?






GUESS collaborated with three Malaysian designers for a special showcase and they came up with three clothing pieces whereby GUESS denim merchandises were transformed into exclusive limited edition pieces which are available for auction. The proceeds will go to the designers' choice of charity body. All merchandises are now on display in GUESS Pavilion KL until end of October.

The Extra Piece.




GUESS also collaborated with ten local celebrities who each represent the authentic embodiment of GUESS women and men. These are Jane Chuck, Henley Hii, Carey Ng, Kamal Adli, Anzalna Nasir, Josiah Mizukami, Hanis Zalikha, Arja Lee, Faizal Tahir and Tasha Shilla. Some of them turned up at the event in support of GUESS Fall campaign.

Funny pose!


Hunny Madu, was the emcee of the night.


Let the fashion runway begin!
Here comes denim,western shirts, leather belts, cowboy hats, boots and a sexy attitude...













My favourite of the entire collection!
The tube denim looks so chic and sexy with the knee length boots.
I give an A++++








Ahah, what did I say about jumpsuits in trend now!
It's great to see GUESS inserted a fitted denim jumpsuit into their collection. 




























The first theme of the fashion show began with Nashville, the center of music, where country meets rock n’ roll. Then, The Show which is filled with bold, sexy and iconic GUESS influences. The journey to Nashville ended with On the Road, which represented the authenticity and denim heritage of the GUESS brand.

The country line was somewhat different from the usuals. There's something about country style that feels down-to-earth but sexy at the same time. Leather and suede mix nicely with cotton and fennel make the look edgy, sleek with a lil rock n roll! And a denim rugged look on a man makes it all the more sexy!



Picture time with the local celebrities who attended the event.
