[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!

CamoEyes: Aqua 3 Tone Contacts

Today, I am going to review a pair of lenses that was sponsored to me from CamoEyesCamoEyes sells non-prescription colored contact lenses, ranging from more naturally styled lenses to crazy special effects lenses. This company is located in the United Kingdom, but they ship internationally.

CamoEyes uses regular mail service via Royal Mail to ship their packages. The packaging for their products is fantastic!

DSC_2179_Fotor_CollageInside the bubble mailer, there were two boxes with the contact lens vials inside. The boxes kept the vials safe and secure! Here are the contents of the boxes:

Fotor_Collage

They sponsored the Aqua 3 Tone Contacts and the Red Mesh Contacts. Both of these lenses do not give enlargement; they are not circle lenses. These are colored contact lenses. Contact lenses from CamoEyes are not medical devices; they will not correct your vision. These lenses are great for people with 20/20 vision who don’t want to enlarge their eyes! They give vibrant color without the circle lens enlargement. These lenses are also great for people who love wearing their glasses but want to change up their eye color. I know sometimes I love wearing my own glasses!

Instructions

These instructions came inside each of the contact lens boxes. I think it’s great when companies send out instructions for the use and care of their lenses! It’s important to read contact lens instructions to make sure you understand how to take care of them. Remember, your health and safety comes first! Lenses from CamoEyes may have different lifespans, so be sure to read the box, vials, and instructions carefully. Make sure you know when your lenses expire! This goes for any contact lens, not just these ones.

In this post, I will focus on the Aqua 3 Tone Contacts.

I love the pretty aqua/teal color of these lenses! The life span of these lenses is 90 days after opening their vials. These lenses are mostly aqua, but they also have bits of black and gold to give the lenses an interesting design. Even though these are not enlarging lenses, the black limbal ring defines the eyes and gives the illusion that the eyes are bigger. I always love lenses with a solid limbal ring!

I have bad eyesight… so if I am usually seen wearing my trusty old glasses. I hope my eyesight doesn’t get any worse… I don’t want to switch to a higher prescription again! In any case, I love how vibrant my eyes look even with my glasses on. My normal eye color is a very dark brown that looks black in most lighting, so this bright aqua is a welcome change!

glasses_Fotor_Collage

For this makeup look, I wanted to go for something more natural, something that would be easy to wear everyday. To be honest, I do not wear makeup that often. I’m very busy, so if I have time to wear makeup on an average school day, I only wear eyeliner. But more often than not, I don’t put anything on my face other than moisturizer. For this look for CamoEyes, I used foundation, neutral brown eyeshadow, black crayon eyeliner, black mascara, and a red lip tint. I never use mascara, but I wanted to try it out since my lashes are almost non-existent. I love the way false lashes look on me, but they can be a hassle. I hope you like this toned-down everyday makeup look!

UNIQSO: I.Fairy Hanabi Circle Lenses in Violet

I know this WordPress blog focuses on J-Fashion, but I would also like to use this blog for in-depth reviews! If you are interested in circle lenses, please read on!~

UNIQSO sponsored a pair of circle lenses to be used for cosplay, and even though I received these lenses for cosplay, I will definitely wear these circle lenses for non-cosplay purposes too! I can wear them for lolita fashion, or even casually if I do not feel like wearing glasses. If you just want to see the final review for the circle lenses, scroll down to the bottom of this post!

If you want to buy something from UNIQSO, be sure to use the coupon code “xiaorawr” for 10% off!

The Rundown: 

Here is the original package that I received in the mail:

DSC_2166

The package did not take too long to arrive at my doorstep, and I had no problems with customs. The shipping method that UNIQSO used was reliable! They even marked the package as a gift, which is great.

DSC_2167_Fotor_Collage

Inside the package, the contact lens case and the box with the circle lens tubes were safely inside! I was pleased that the circle lens tubes were wrapped in bubble wrap to ensure extra protection.

I soaked my new circle lenses in contact solution overnight, and then the next day, I wore them for the first time to costest Nishikino Maki, a character from the idol anime Love Live! School Idol Project. The name of these lenses are I.Fairy Hanabi Circle Lenses, and the color is Violet.

The Look:

beautyplus1

I took so many selfies when I costested Maki! I cut and styled the wig the day before the costest; I am happy with how the wig turned out, but I may need to re-trim the bottom lengths. Enough about my wig though; let’s talk about these amazing circle lenses! I love the I.Fairy Hanabi design. It’s subtle, but very pretty! The little swirls are cute up-close. The ring of violet color is thin, but vibrant. The thin ring also makes my pupils look very large, which I think gives my eyes a very cute dolly effect. There is also a black limbal ring which gives great definition!

beautyplus

I put in these contacts before testing my cosplay or doing any makeup, and when I first put them into my eyes, there was no stinging or discomfort. They were not difficult to apply at all! I usually have some trouble with circle lenses, especially when they have large diameters, but these slipped onto my eyes without any problem. I did not need to use any eyedrops before or after! I wore the circle lenses for the whole day, and my eyes did not feel dry or irritated. The circle lenses did not slip around in my eyes either. I would highly recommend the I.Fairy Hanabi circle lenses!

Here are some up-close and cropped photos of just my eyes so you can check out the circle lenses in more detail:

closeup

In certain types of lighting or angles, the difference between my real pupils and my real irises can be seen since the colored irises of the circle lenses are a thin ring that reveal some of my natural irises. As seen above, you can see my small black pupil and my brown irises. I think it looks a bit odd, but it could also give a very cool and pretty effect to your eyes!

closeup2

In other types of lighting or angles, my brown eyes and pupils blend together to look the same. This makes it look like the entire area inside the circle lenses’ irises are the pupils! I love this dolly eye effect.

Final Review:

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Communication: ☆☆☆☆☆ Throughout the sponsorship process, UNIQSO was great with communication! Their representative was very polite and kind, and also responded to my questions in a timely manner. They explained the terms and conditions clearly, and also provided a tracking code for my package.

Packaging: ☆☆☆☆☆ As stated in the first section of this post, the packaging was amazing! I definitely trust UNIQSO to ensure that their products are undamaged. I have purchased from UNIQSO before, and never had any problems with their packaging or shipping.

Style: ☆☆☆☆ Very cute design, but I think it looks better from a distance rather than up-close in certain lighting. This is very minor though; the style is still amazing.

Color: ☆☆☆☆☆ Very vibrant violet!

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ One of the most comfortable lenses I’ve ever worn.
