Lens Review: Crystal Color Lens in Amethyst Grey

Hello there, sweeties!

It's been a while since I've last published a decent blog post here, and even more so, a product review. I've been really loaded these past few weeks, what with academic requirements, church duties, helping out dad with his projects, assisting my uncle in his new baking & pastry business, and setting up my very own e-shop: Peu de Soleil (check it out! :D).

Soooo yeah, talk about backlog. I have lots of photos yet to be posted and writings yet to be made. One of those overdue articles, is this review. I've received the lens package last October 13 and planned to publish a review seven days after trying it out, but lots of stuff came in my way so I had to delay. I think it's a good thing, though. At least I've already worn the lenses for more or less three weeks, and that gives me more information, yes? So let's head on to the review, shall we? :D



Well, before anything else, I got this Crystal Lens pair from Pandora's Boxes. A pair retails at P450 for Plano or Non-graded pairs, and P500 for Graded ones. The lenses have a shelf life of three years, and  with proper care, may last up to 1 year upon opening. Great deal, right? I see most lenses of the same quality being sold at P600-P1,000 on other e-shops and eye clinics.


THE PACKAGE
This is just really cute. I can't even. Aaaaack! Kawaii :3

Just as always, the package consists of 2 vials of lensesa lens case, and a manual

THE LENS

The vials have the details clearly indicated: the design and grade are written on the cap, while the base curve, lens diameter, and other details are written on the vial's label (which, clearly, I have forgotten to take a photo of. Sorry :/).


Lens Design Code: Amethyst Grey
Diameter: 15.0mm

THE VERDICT

COLOR/DESIGN: ✿ ✿ ✿  
I really love the color grey, especially when it comes to contact lenses. It just looks so classy and sophisticated, plus it accentuates the eyes without going over-the-top (like with red or aqua blue). These lenses are not excluded from that. The design also adds to the sophistication and class, see:


The flourish accents reminds me of princesses and castles. Too bad that doesn't show much when worn. However, the dark and adequately thick outline kinda makes up for it. The outline emphasizes the eyes enough for a doll-eye look, yet not alien-y. I give this pair 3 ✿s for color and design. Not too impressive a design, but the color and the over-all effect still come out nicely.

ENLARGEMENT: ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ 
With a 15.0mm diameter, the lens enlarges the eyes enough for just a cute, doll-eye effect without looking like you came from Mars. Perfect for Ulzzang, Gyaru, or just everyday look. I absolutely love it.


COMFORT: ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ 
If there's something I like most about these pair of lens, it is its superb comfort. This is already my third pair from Pandora's Boxes, and they never fail to give my eyes the safety and comfort that they need. It's been a quarter of a year already since I last worn contact lens, but I had no problem wearing these new ones even for the first time. It dries up a little after 4 hours of wearing, but I get to wear it for 6 hours with the help of some eye drops. 

OVER-ALL RATING: ✿ ✿ ✿ ✿ 
I totally recommend this for those of you who are opting for graded lens in alternate use with eyeglasses (that's what I do. hihi). As I've mentioned earlier, it's accentuating in a way that's not too disturbing to look at; and still somehow natural-looking.

  3. Nice contact lenses. I'm into Amethyst Cinnamon, Hazelnut, something brown and natural color contact lenses as well. Got hooked at those when I decided to change my thick eye glasses. I don't look nerdy anymore. :)
