Today i woke up around 9:50am & went downstairs to get the mail as i always do! But today the mail was already in because BOTH pairs of the lenses i had ordered had come in ^^ I was pretty happy about that because i didnt know when to expect the Dolly+ Red's & i thought the Eos g-208's were coming in tomorrow (7/12/12) instead of today (7/11/12)
Well i immediately took them upstairs to begin the soaking process & waited 6 hours as recommened. I'll get to what i did during that 6 hour wait, but for now On to the reviews!!
First up : Eos G-208 Violet review from Fobbybarbie.com
The package was a typical envelope lined with bubble wrap & the lenses were stacked ontop of eachother wrapped in bubble wrap~ no pics cuz it's kinda plain~
the lens itself!
top ): read bottom!!
in the case
The lenses in my eyes (:
ｄｅｓｉｇｎ／ｃｏｌｏｒ：★★★☆☆ 3/5 As you can see the lid of these lenses says PINK & i thought i was buying the pinks but it turns out there was a mistake in labeling these lenses so the person i was emailing with while purchasing these told me that these are acctually the VIOLET lens rather than the pink ones ! there was a mix up & i'm fine with that considering these were the last pair before sell out, but with all that aside, it's not the fact that i recieved the violet lens, it's that the violet isn't very vibrant whatsoever ): I was originally very excited for the pinks because they appear to show up well, but the same cant be said for the violet , particularly in normal lighting. These lenses are more on the natural side even though they are violet in my opinion.
Ｅｎｌａｒｇｅｍｅｎｔ: ★★★★☆ 4/5 The diameter of these lenses are 14.5 which is bigger than a normal contact lens & it does show, its not super noticable but it's there! particularly if you look at this gif i put together.
ｓｈｉｐｐｉｎｇ： ★★★★★ 5/5 ! whoooooooo these got here in 3 days ! & came even before the shipping date that i had expected so yeah all good, plus shipping was FREE & the contacts only cost $5.99(clearance) so thats a big bonus! (: didn't come with free lens case btw
Ｏｖｅｒａｌｌ：★★★★☆ 4/5 The only reason these get a 4 out of 5 is because of the color ! I wasn't satisfied with the violet color! it's just not vibrant enough, not compared to the pink lenses atleast (✖╭╮✖) other than that these lenses were freaking amazing comfort wise ^^
A picture with my face hehe
Next up : I.Fairy Dolly+ Red
This is what the lenses came wrapped in
when i unwrapped it they were in this! I had never seen it like this before ^^
The lens bottles & contacts
Ｄｅｓｉｇｎ／ｃｏｌｏｒ： ★★★★★ 5/5! I absolutely love the color & design of the lens ^^ The red is very vibrant & this is exactly what im looking for in a red lens. Unlike cosplay contacts they aren't just ONE color. They are a blend of the natural eye color, red, and black which can make it seem more natural, aside from it being a red lens of course but i really like it! They aren't super bold but just bold enough & they are bright even in normal lighting as you can see from the photo.
Ｅｎｌａｒｇｅｍｅｎｔ：★★★★★ Like all I.fairy lenses they are pretty large & i love that about them The black ring isn't extremely bold & i like that ^^
Ｃｏｍｆｏｒｔ：★★★★☆ 4/5 These were pretty comfortable like all of my I.fairy lenses were but unlike the Eos lenses i recieved to day you can't exactly forget they are on your eyes. They aren't uncomfortable or anything though so they still get a high rating.
Ｓｈｉｐｐｉｎｇ：★★★★☆ The shipping took quite a while u_u it's not there fault though! The lenses were coming from Malaysia & were shipped out fairly quickly but i guess customs in California just decided to take forever, because these arrived in Cali on the 4th of July & just got here this morning -_- but yeah again, customs not the shops fault ✪
Ｏｖｅｒａｌｌ： ★★★★★ 5/5 I really love the lenses & am very glad i finally bought a pair of red lenses ^^ They're great ｡◕‿◕｡
A few weeks ago i noticed my I.fairy lenses weren't in good shape anymore & it had been a long time since i had purchased them! They were one of my favorite lenses so obviously they got alot of wear on them so yeah it was time to lay them to rest
In addition to the I.fairy's the Kimchi Bambi Blues i had received around the end of April also had some small tears (一。一;;）but to be honest i was okay with this because they were tooooo vibrant even for my tastes ._.
Also, The Kilala popcorn greens are going away because well frankly they sucked in my opinion, i'm not sure if i got a defective pair or not but dear god they were a pain SO YEAH they're going away too. that's right 3 pairs gone already -.- im now left with only 4 pairs of contact lenses & hopefully The pair i got from Kiwiberry1 will finally arrive !
Ｓｅｅ ｙｏｕ！ ＼(＾▽＾*)
