Rina-chan's Thoughts On: Cutiepie Dolly+ Brown

I've been wearing contact lenses for more than 5 years now. Started with clear-type ones then slowly became more confident and adventurous, and tried colored contacts, all from Freshlook. Then I saw those dolly-eyed gyarus wearing circle lenses and thought to myself "Gah! Gotta have those!"

So lucky I stumbled upon JapaneseCandy!
I trust their shop because even the lovely and famous Tricia Gosingtian gets her lenses from them!

I immediately fell in love with their new lenses at the time, the Cutiepie Dolly+! Maybe I was sold by the photos of the kawaii model and her huge dolly eyes, meheheheh... So off I go and filled the order form, received the confirmation and paid Php700 (at the time when they first launched these lenses). That was around late March and it was supposed to arrive a month after. Unfortunately, I think the shop had a bit of snag with their supplier and finally, they arrived on July. Took a long time, didn't it? But for me, they are definitely worth the wait. I even got another pair of these Dolly+ but in Gray (more on that in the future). The good thing is, Ms. Gladys was very nice and patient, and my lenses were shipped fast!






Lo and behold, my first-ever pair of circle lenses! Totemo koufun shiteiru yo!

I've been using these for almost 2 months now, alternating with the gray ones. And here's what I think...

Color: ♥♥♥
I actually thought these are gonna be more of like hazel-brown as I saw on the model's photo from JapaneseCandy's site, but turns out they are not that vivid and opaque even compared to my Freshlook ones (sample photo from my Purederm BB Cream post). No one actually notices unless they stare into my eyes.

Design: ♥♥♥♥♥
Very simple, won't make you look like a fish! I love this kind of pattern, looks so natural.

Enlargement: ♥♥♥♥
Perfect for a circle lens noob like me! It won't make you look like an alien, but of course it's always better worn with eye makeup for that dolly look.

Comfort: ♥♥♥♥
Probably even more comfortable than all of my past contact lenses. I can wear this more than 8 hours a day at work (which of course is NOT advisable), even when I'm sitting in front of the PC almost all the time. And I very seldom have to put eye drops. Although I experience a bit of discomfort but it goes away in a few blinks and it rarely happens.
 
Overall: ♥♥♥♥♥
Suteki desu! No disappointments for me... I'm sooo in-love with these lenses and I even plan on repurchasing!


I'll probably be trying other circle lenses but this one is a winner in my opinion...

So, that's it for now. Ja ne!
