[Review] Barbie Angel Grey Lenses

I wore these lenses for a photoshoot with Studio du Petit Oiseau. They were comfortable to wear all day, regardless of location (in a car, up the mountain, in the grass…).

Even from a distance, the gray color shows up on my eyes! My favorite part of these lenses is their comfort. I wore them for a recent K-Pop dance performance, and they did not irritate my eyes even when I was dancing and sweating.

I don’t wear these lenses for cosplay, but if you cosplay someone with gray-colored eyes, this would be a great fit for you! I wear these lenses for fashion and fun, and they have never caused any issues. Remember: If you use circle lenses, be sure to take proper care of them.

Here are some close-up photos of these lenses:

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Packaging: ☆☆☆☆☆ I’ve never had an issue with UNIQSO’s packaging before! Feel free to look at some of my previous UNIQSO reviews to see how they package their circle lenses. They have consistent packaging, and this time, it was no different.

Style: ☆☆☆☆☆ I love the design of these lenses! These lenses have amazing enlargement… The black limbal ring really helps define your eyes. The opening in the center of the lenses is large, so your vision won’t be obscured.

Color: ☆☆☆☆☆ The gray is just as I wanted it to be! It’s a deep gray that would be flattering for anyone.

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ These are so comfy! I think these are my comfiest lenses of this diameter yet! Sometimes I forget I’m wearing lenses because I can hardly feel them.

First, let’s talk about the packaging!

DSCN1116

UNIQSO shipped the wig in a DHL mailer. The circle lenses came in a separate package, which I will talk about it in a separate blog post.

DSCN1117

The wig was wrapped in multiple layers of protection.

DSCN1119

Inside the plastic bag is the wig and wig extension piece (and protective hairnets). The plastic bag also had a cardboard piece inside that added protection for the wig during transit. The wig came in perfect condition! Pretty fibers, not tangled at all: this was definitely a brand-new wig.

DSCN1120

When I took out the pieces from the bag, I was pleasantly surprised to find a free wig cap! This is the kind of wig cap I like too: the stretchy net kind with the hole on the top. This wig is made up of a short base wig and one clip-on extension. The extension has a large alligator clip, and it is one piece that has both the hair infinity loop as well as the long extension strands.

The wig was very easy to style! I trimmed the base wig to fix up the bangs, but didn’t do anything to the extension. The gray wig has a silver sheen, and it’s the perfect color for Luo Tianyi!

It’s too early to tell if the wig extension tangles easily or not, but the fibers are all smooth and even if they tangle, they should be easy to detangle with a wig comb or wig brush. The base wig is short and does not tangle at all. The fibers have a silvery sheen but do not look too shiny. This wig looks fantastic in photos! The base wig is also thick; my hair does not show through the wefts.

If you want to cosplay Luo Tianyi, this wig is perfect! It’s easy to wear and saves you the trouble of trying to make the hair extensions yourself. Here is the link to the wig, if you’re interested! Be sure to use the coupon code “xiaorawr” for 10% off!

I’ll review the circle lenses next, but if you want to see the product now, here is the link. I will update this post with the link to my circle lens review once it is live. Let me know if you have any questions!

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!

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.

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:

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!

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!

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.
