I’ve never worn contact lenses before. I have 20/20 vision so I’ve never had to wear them, and the one time that I wanted to try a pair back in high school my mom said absolutely not. I remember I wanted a hunter green pair. I begged and pleaded but nope, my mom didn’t budge. Just another phase that I grew out of. I was recently contacted by Eyecandy Lens to try out a pair of their contacts for review and I was super excited. Felt like I was 16 again. Eyecandy Lens specializes in Korean Color Circle Lenses. Circle lenses or big eye contacts has been all the rage over the past few years and has become quite popular with celebrities such as Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga. I think they look pretty cool and thought what better way to try contacts for the first time then with a pair of circle lens. I chose the Dolly Eye Honey Hazel Lens.
The lenses came bottled securely, each in a separate jar of solution. They also came with a case.
The Dolly Eye Honey Hazel Lenses are hazel brown with dark brown specks and rimmed in dark brown. Take a closer look…
Here are the specs:
Origin: South Korea
Water content: 42%
Diameter: 14.5 mm
Base Curve: 8.6
Duration: 1 year disposable
The lenses came with detailed instructions including pictures to help you insert them
Now onto my experience. Boy oh boy I do not know how people wear contact lenses. I followed the instructions carefully and even tried to improvise a bit and still had an extremely hard time putting them on. It took me almost an hour and my eyes were super irritated and watery when I was done. It took about fifteen minutes for them to settle down. Once settled in, I loved the way the lens looked…
The lens has a wide pupil area that exposes your natural eye color
I wore the contacts for about four hours straight until I could not wear them anymore. The entire time I could feel them in my eyes and after a while they became uncomfortable to the point that it was unbearable. My eyes felt dry and irritated, I do however suffer from very dry eyes on the regular. I don’t know if this had anything to do with these particular lenses, or if it is just that I am not used to wearing contacts and have to get accustomed to them. I may also need a better solution to soak them in.
I really like the look of the Dolly Eye Honey Hazel Lens from Eyecandy Lens. They are dramatic enough without going overboard and I would not feel funny wearing them out on a regular day. I could even get away with these at work. However, I only plan to wear these once in a while until I get used to them. I can even see myself picking up another shade to spice up my looks for those nights out on the town. You can purchase Eyecandy Lens for yourself at http://eyecandylens.com.
