Review: Tri-color Lenses

I missed doing these kinds of posts! Very reminiscent of my entries back in 2009/2010, yes?

Anyhow, here are all the 4 circle lenses that I’m using at the moment. You will see that for once I’m not wearing any contacts with bold limbal rings or patterns! It has actually been months since I outgrew my Popteen phase, so I’m trying to look a little less cutesy/cartoony now (or maybe this is also a phase that I’ll also eventually outgrow).

All the circle lenses I’m wearing below are tri-color ones that have yellow inner rings that mimic the effect of naturally colored eyes. Unlike my past experiences with bolder and bigger circle lenses, I don’t have to put on too much eye make-up when wearing these. However, you might want to invest on different colored lipsticks to complement your eye color!

As usual, I have my forever circle lens sponsor Japanese Candy to thank for all of this.  I’m wearing brown wigs in all of the pictures because my blonde hair can be overwhelming in tight shots like these ones.

I hope you guys find this entry useful if you’re planning to purchase any lenses soon!

PUFFY 3TONES GRAY (14.5mm) – My favorite of the bunch. At first I was a bit freaked out by how light they were from inside the bottles, but they turned out so pretty in the end! Also haven’t experienced any discomfort with these babies so far. These are definitely a must have! They go with different kinds of make-up… smokey, natural, colorful, etc. (What is this sorcery?!)

Lipstick used: Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Peach 075 + Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Creme Brulee 095

Thanks Elle Poupee for the floral hippie band!

GOSSIP 3TONE BROWN (14.5mm) – I love these lenses! Lovely shade of brown that’s not too yellow and not too red. The only downside is that I feel like they’re not big enough and that I was slightly tricked (lol). The lens itself is 14.5 but the print is just as big as any normal 14mm lens. You can still see that there’s a bit of space left from the edge of the design to the edge of the lens. :(

Thanks The Style Machine for the Hello Kitty glasses!

CRYSTAL 3TONE GREEN (14.5mm) – Same size issue as the brown lenses above, but these are slightly more acceptable, for some reason. The color is on the darker side  and they make your eyes look like your normal eyes but a lot shinier! I don’t know if I can recommend these ones and the brown ones to anyone since they kind of defeat the purpose of getting circle lenses, but perhaps if you’re looking for ones that aren’t too obvious or if you’re looking for your first pair of lenses *ever*, these might be best for you. The colors aren’t too overwhelming too.

Thanks Miss Sartorial for the detachable collar!

SASSY 3TONE BLUE (14.5mm) – My alternative to the gray lenses above. These blue ones are quite suitable for anyone who wants to achieve a dolly look without having to resort to the ones with bold limbal rings. Lovely effect if you pair them with pink cheeks and lips. The combination makes you look younger and more innocent (haha)

Lipstick used: Maybelline Watershine Pure B24

Thanks Minimaos for the super pretty pink ombre wig (my dream hair color would be this kind of pale pink) and Miss Sartorial for the detachable collar!
