Review: Dolly Eye Brown

Saturday, August 11, 2012
Along with the popularity of the Twilight Series came the fame of Cullen lenses as what I'd like to call them. Different shops started to sell different colored lenses that are reminiscent of the Twilight characters. I wanted one of those honey colored lenses for myself too - I am a fan of those Cullen Vampire eyes you know and so when Glow&Glamour asked me to choose lenses from their collection, I immediately set my eyes on this totally gorgeous pair:
Dolly Eye Brown

Diameter: 14.2mm
Water Content: 38% 
Base Curve: 8.6mm 
Replacement Period: 12 months
Non-graded lenses.

Shipping/Packaging: 5/5
>>Glow&Glamour packages your lenses in a sleek, black jewelry box with their label on it. I am very fond of cutesy packaging but this is even better! My lenses are safely housed in the box with cushions in it so I am very much satisfied with the presentation. Shipping took less than two weeks so that's a huge relief! :3 They ship internationally by the way!

Color/Design: 5/5
>>Maybe most of you would find the color a bit weird especially when it is worn but I tell you I love the color to bits! It does appear to be a little bright and too "in-your-face" so if you're not used to attention, don't punish yourself by wearing this. As for the design, it's pretty simple. The mustard yellow color is a bit too solid   so expect it to look brighter when worn. It also has a thick limbal ring and a smaller opening for the irises than most lenses. 
Enlargement: 4/5
>>This pair is one of those lenses with regular size so it does not offer too much enlargement much to my liking since it only measures 14.2mm in diameter. 

Comfort: 4/5
>>This pair is a bit thicker than most of the lenses I've tried on - I guess it's an advantage because it'll not tear apart easily. In my experience, I found it really bothersome for the first 10 minutes just because the hole for the irises are pretty small obscuring a little of your vision but when you get used to it it almost feels normal again :)

Overall, I am totally in-love with this pair! It really looks good on the photos and looks good with my hair color which is more on the reddish-brown tone. But I'd recommend this for cosplay events though because people might freak out when they see you using it on ordinary days. HAHA!
