Oscar Wylee Review

Sunday



oscar wylee / review / recommendations







review


8/10 experience

I was really happy with how easy everything was
I was lucky with shipping since my sister was coming back from Aussie at the time so I got free shipping thanks to that. I have heard that shipping from Aussie is in general really high so it doesn't seem so bad at $30 for some more stylish and far cheaper glasses. But that definitely was a factor with NZ exchange rates going lower and lower these days ..

The styles that they have on offer are good, obviously not as much as if you were in a store but for Australians they do get to try five on at home for free. I was lucky enough to choose two pairs that do fit my nose quite well



my prescription

Curently I'm around -4

The price is so good, especially compared to NZ.. it's crazy.. I paid $330 to change just the lenses (at Specsavers) for a pair of frames that I liked... I literally paid less for one pair of these glasses than I did for just the lenses...




style

Chamberlain





The Chamberlain's are a wider fit but do still fit quite nicely on my nose.

This design is definitely my favourite and a popular choice from Oscar Wylee. I have been in need of a clear pair and in general a more 'fashionable' pair of glasses, so this has filled that void. I love wearing dark lipsticks with this and the idea that my eyes won't be so covered by my frames haha. I still need to push up my glasses from time to time since it is wider but that just comes with the oily skin life.






Kelsey




The Kelsey's in Midnight fits my bridge soooo well, so if you're looking for a nice fit for a low bridge (and I do have quite a low one) then this pair might be perfect for you! It's also a simple and versatile design.

I would recommend level upping in the thinning of the lenses for this frame. I chose the $100 thinning and I can still see some of the lens coming out of the frames :(
- The Chamberlain's are okay in this respect since the frame itself is thicker so it covers it perfectly

It's not the most flattering but it's my simple go-to glasses, that actually fit my bridge.

They were really tight on my face the first time I wore them but the second etc time it has been all good.

I got these with the tinted lenses as well, they look slightly creepy as they don't go that dark in the sun but I find them useful for driving and knowing that these are protecting my eyes.





recommendations

  • Have a look through instagram under their #oscarwylee tag to look out for people with similar face shapes to you to have an idea on how it will look on your face
  • Choose something simple and everyday and one that is out of your comfort zone 
  • Know that the frames will always work (given they fit your face) as long as you have the confidence to rock it
  • If you have the funds, thin it down! You might get lucky with thicker frames but if not it will bug you!
  • This is a lot cheaper than your typical optometry store but keep in mind there are other online stores such as clearlycontacts and many more that can provide a much cheaper pair.
  • Oscar Wylee don't provide glass cleaner spray so make sure you have some handy, especially if you wear makeup (it can get so dirty!)




This isn't sponsored or anything by the way but being a glasses-wearer I really appreciate knowing about glasses and what they look like, especially on Asians who have low bridges.

February Favourites

Tuesday


february favorites

 soar x whirl / g-eazy / lacey nudes 







I've been needing some nude flats that aren't just the typical flats. I saw these at Kmart and swooned!
















MAC Up






Soar and Whirl are a combination from heaven and pretty damn good separately as well.

I find soar more complementary to my skin tone and would recommend Whirl for people with a darker skin tone. The mauve/brown lip colour is popular at the moment and I can definitely see why.

It's not just nude and it's not so in your face.
I find it perfect for work but also great with a dark eye look, especially brown/purple smokey eyes.

I prefer Soar, even though I initially thought it was going to be too pink but it has definitely won my heart. Whirl is amazing but just a little too dark for me due to the more grey undertone.


My lips naturally:

Here's a little comparison to Velvet Teddy as well
Velvet Teddy has a more peachy undertone which made it less prominent on my lips, which is why I wanted a deeper nude.

G Eazy



I went to the Mai FM Freshman Tour and in all honesty, I just wanted to go to this for Jhene Aiko (if you don't know her already then you need to) but G-Eazy definitely put that concert on a whole other level.

He performed with soooo much charisma, talked to the crowd- made us feel so fu*king awesome and he performed for like an hour and a half. For only around $55 (after other fees) for a ticket it was damn worth it.

I am completely obsessed with his voice now and that swagger that he has is just so captivating - and that smirk doe
.

Me, Myself and I w/ Bebe Rexha



I Mean It (ft Remo)




Also if you don't know Jhene Aiko here are some songs that you need to listen to:
Spotless Mind, July (which is featuring Drake not the other way around) &Living Room Flow
















goal - getting


Onceit sale -migoals

I recently got this hoping to write down my goals and keep myself motivated. It's honestly such a struggle sometimes to not just go to sleep after work but I have got to do it. This blog as well, is so helpful in reminding me.. now only to act on it haha.
