[PinkyParadise] Random Lenses Program

Random lenses… What does that mean?!

IMG_4690.jpg

Well, it means you get two different lenses. Randomly. I don’t mind at all because I think it’s a unique look! If you’re interested in purchasing new circle lenses this month, use the exclusive coupon code “lolita” for 50% off your order!

Now, onto the review:

When I received the package from PinkyParadise, it was marked as having a plastic lens case inside, so it was easy to assume there were contact lenses.

Version 2

Everything was safely inside with no damages. I received a set of mismatching circle lenses, a cute lens case, and a velcro hair tool (not sure if that’s the proper name of this product; it’s a Japanese hair thingy you use to hold back your bangs).

PinkyParadise offers a wide variety of prescription contact lenses, so I was glad they had my prescription available! My left eye is worse than my right eye, and they’re both near-sighted. Just like the colors of these lenses, my prescription is mis-matching too!

The violet lens I got is from the brand Vassen, whereas the turquoise lens I got is from Aurora color contacts.

For both lenses, when I first put them in my eyes, there was some initial discomfort. After blinking and applying eye drops, my eyes adjusted and there was no longer discomfort in my eyes.

The colors for both of these lenses are vibrant in good lighting! I noticed when I was taking selfies on my phone, not with the studio lighting, it was not as vibrant. But with a ring light and/or flash photography, the colors were crisp and bright!

In terms of comfort, they’re not as comfortable as some other circle lenses I’ve worn. I don’t think I’d want to keep these in my eyes for more than 4 or 5 hours.

Overall: ☆☆☆☆

Packaging: ☆☆☆☆☆ The packaging was great; I have no complaints.

Style: ☆☆☆☆ I love the designs for both of these lenses individually: there is a black limbal ring that surrounds both irises. The limbal ring is bigger on the violet one than on the turquoise one. As a set, it’s decent but the violet lens enlarges the eye more than the turquoise one, which makes it look awkward. It would be better if the set was mismatching in color but closer in size.

Color: ☆☆☆☆☆ No complaints for color! The colors for both lenses cover up my dark brown eyes well.

Comfort: ☆☆☆ There was initial discomfort when applying these lenses, even after soaking them in my solution for 24 hours. I can wear these lenses for a few hours, but I don’t think they will be comfortable all day. I would recommend using eye drops with these lenses to add more comfort!

Geo: Princess Mimi Almond Brown Lenses

The website www.geocolouredlenses.com sponsored the Geo Princess Mimi Almond Brown lenses for me to review. These are brown lenses that last up to a year with proper care. The diameter is 14.5 mm, the base curve is 8.7, and the water content is 40±2%. These lenses come in prescriptions 0.00 ∼ -8.00.

Here is the package I received:

DSC_0532.jpg

The contents of the package were neatly in one place, sealed in a plastic bag.

DSC_0533.jpg

The Geo lenses came in individual vials, with the prescriptions on top of the caps. The lenses also came with a complimentary lens case, marked with “L” and “R” for “Left” and “Right.” There was also a business card sized flyer with information about Geo Coloured Lenses’ social media, and a sheet with instructions for soft contact lens care.

Below, you can see a set of three photos. The top one shows one eye with no lens or makeup, but the other eye has lenses and makeup. As you can see, The lenses and makeup make my eyes look a lot bigger! In the middle photo, both of my eyes have makeup on, but only one eye is wearing a circle lens. You can see the difference that the circle lens makes! The bottom photo is the complete look.

Circle lenses are a great cosmetic accessory that can add a lot to your look! And since many of them come in prescriptions, you can use them instead of wearing glasses. Just be sure to take proper care of your lenses and remember to avoid keeping them in your eyes for too long. And never sleep in your lenses!

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Packaging: ☆☆☆☆☆ The packaging was great; I have no complaints.

Style: ☆☆☆☆☆ I love the design of these lenses: there is a black limbal ring that surrounds sheer light brown color! The lenses give dramatic enlargement but are in a natural color, so these lenses would work for a variety of makeup looks.

Color: ☆☆☆☆ I do wish the color was more opaque so the light brown shows better on my dark eyes, but the color still looks lighter than my natural eye color.

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ These are very comfortable! I have only worn them once, but I definitely want to wear them more often. I could hardly feel them in my eyes when I wore them, and I kept them in for several hours.

KLensPop: New Bio Julia in Black

editinfotor

I am really excited to review these awesome circle lenses from KLensPop: New Bio Julia lenses in Black. Here is the info from the website:

Brand: NEW BIO
Diameter: 14.0mm
Graphic Diameter: 13.6mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6mm

The lenses were shipped to me promptly, and I have no complaints about the time it took to arrive here:

KLensPop mailed the package via Korea Post, and the cardboard box was very secure. Inside the cardboard box, everything was wrapped in a thick layer of bubble wrap.

DSC_0001_Fotor_Collage

Inside the bubble wrap was this adorable little box! I love KLensPop’s packaging. There was even illustrated instructions for the care of contact lenses on the back of the box.

DSC_0006

Above, you can see what was inside the box. Everything was packaged neatly inside a ziploc bag. The circle lenses come with a contact lens case (color-coded for left and right), and a pair of contact lens tweezers. I don’t use tweezers since I use my fingers, but if you want to use a tool like this, the option is available.

DSC_0007This is my first time trying circle lenses from the Korean brand New Bio, by the way! Now, onto the review for these lenses from KLensPop. ^_^

eye

These black circle lenses do enlarge my eyes, but the enlargement is very natural. I don’t think people will stare at my eyes skeptically; if I wore these lenses at home, I honestly don’t think my grandparents will freak out like they normally do when I wear circle lenses. Since the enlargement is natural, these circle lenses look great with toned-down makeup. I did not wear any false lashes for this makeup look! I only used eyeshadow, black liquid eyeliner, white pencil eyeliner, and mascara for the eye makeup.

cute

These are in my prescription too, which is wonderful! You should check their website; they probably have your prescription as well.

DSC_0007_Fotor_Collage

Now, for my circle lens ratings!

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Style: ☆☆☆☆ This design is simple but definitely fits in the natural aesthetic. It looks lovely! I like how it gives my eyes a gray tinge in certain lighting and eye positions, due to the sheer-colored black parts on the inner section of the lenses.

Enlargement: ☆☆☆ These give slight enlargement, but they are not too noticeable. If you compare these photos to photos of me without circle lenses, you’ll see that my real eye are, in fact, smaller. These lenses would be perfect for a natural look! If you are interested in wearing circle lenses, but are scared to try them because they are so large, you should start off with these lenses! They would be a great pair of circle lenses for someone to start out with.

Color: ☆☆☆☆☆ It’s definitely a black color! The outside is black, but it is more sheer toward the inside. I have dark-colored eyes, but I’m sure it will darken light eyes too. Since the black ring is only on the outside and fades toward the inside, they would look really cool if you have light colored eyes~!

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ These are extremely comfortable! I wore these lenses to see The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, and they never bothered me, even when watching the movie in 3D. I never had to use eyedrops. I am definitely interested in trying other circle lenses from this brand!

PinkyParadise: Princess Pinky Radiance Honey Brown

beautyplus

PinkyParadise sent me these cute prescription circle lenses: Princess Pinky Radiance Honey Brown. Here is the information about these lenses from their website:

Diameter: 14.5mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Life Span: 1 year disposal

If you buy something from PinkyParadise, use the coupon code “xiaorawr” to get free mystery gifts and cute lens cases! PinkyParadise shipped out these lenses with no problem at all. They marked the package as “Gift,” so there were no problems with customs.

packagingThe vials were wrapped in secured foam, so they were completely safe and undamaged.

DSC_0009_Fotor_CollageThey had my prescription in stock, which is wonderful! Some lenses don’t have the same increments in prescriptions, but my prescription is a bit odd. My left eye is -3.75 but my right eye is -3.50 right now. If you check out Princess Pinky Radiance Honey Brown‘s available prescriptions, you’ll see that they have a huge range!

lenses

PinkyParadise always gives out cute contact lens cases with lens purchases. For these lenses, I got a cute purple fish lens case! I love how adorable these look. I soaked the lenses in my multipurpose lens solution overnight before wearing them for the first time. If anyone is curious, the lens solution I use is the Walgreens Multi-Purpose Contact Lens Solution. It’s affordable and works really well; I’ve been using it ever since I wore my first contact lenses.

Now, for my circle lens ratings!

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Style: ☆☆☆☆ This design is really pretty! The space for your pupils is also large, so your pupils will look bigger.

Enlargement: ☆☆☆☆ Great enlargement! They definitely enlarge your eyes, but they don’t make your eyes look as huge as some other circle lenses. There is no black limbal ring. I think these lenses would look lovely with casual makeup looks (without any false lashes or dramatic eyeliner) because they are fairly realistic.

Color: ☆☆☆☆☆ Love the rich brown on the outside and yellow on the inside. It’s very cute! The brown looks orange in some lightings.

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ These are very comfortable! I can wear them all day without using eyedrops; they do not dry my eyes out. Of course, you should only wear the lenses for the recommended amount of time. I usually try to wear my lenses for less than 6 hours.

(☆ = Most negative/Not good at all, ☆☆ = Not that good, but okay ☆☆☆ = Neutral/No opinion/No answer, ☆☆☆☆ = Great, ☆☆☆☆☆ = Most positive/Fantastic!)

I think I will use these lenses next time I cosplay Hinata from Haikyuu!! … >w<
