Hey everyone~! Today I’m reviewing a couple color lenses from Pinkyparadise ✧ \( °∀° )/ ✧ From their “random lenses program”, which consists of receiving a pair of two different lenses for trial. They’re totally random, both for me and for Pinkyparadise, so no one knows what lenses you’ll received until you open them :0
I’m sorry this took a little too long, I’m not having much free time lately (><) And by the way, you have a free gift code at the end of the post! Check it out ~ ^-^
These are the lenses!
8.6mm / 8.9mm
NOTE: characteristics are the same for both pairs.
First of all, a quick look of the packaging and its contents:
Yes, I used a fat cat to cover my data
I received as a little gift this weird velcro thing; it’s for your hair, to get your bangs off your face while doing makeup. Japanese stuff , don’t ask why ɿ(｡･ɜ･)ɾ
Let’s get to the lenses now;
Both of them dark, but very different in color and the looks they give! Let’s start:
☆ G&G Diamond Brown:
· Enlargement: ♥♥♥♡♡:
Even though these are “just” 14.5mm diameter, they do give a good enlargement look. Probably because they’re very heavily colored.
· Color & design: ♥♡♡♡♡:
The mix of dark color and heavy design makes them look very “opaque”; there’s no transition of color towards the pupil like many other lenses do, so they look to “solid” in my opinion. They look nice from a certain distance, but I don’t really like them ( ´ A `)
· Comfort: ♡♡♡♡♡:
I’m sad to say that these lenses are not comfortable at all. I mean, they’re wearable, but they don’t feel good on my eyes. They feel really dry and when I was wearing them, it felt like my eyes couldn’t breath, like they were very tired like when you’re sleepy. They don’t slide softly on your eyes like other lenses. It was very annoying… Maybe if you use them for a photoshoot (very short period of time) they can be okay, but not for a longer wear. Three times I’ve tried them and every time they felt bad, so I’m not really sure what could be the reason; maybe their % of water content, although I have other lenses with the same % and they didn’t feel like this. A note on this later.
☆ G&G BIG DM23 Brown:
· Enlargement: ♥♥♡♡♡:
These lenses look big, although not too much. The black ring is pretty thick so this helps the effect (it’s the only “responsible” of the enlargement I’d say). They look rather natural, I think it’s a “balanced” effect and it looks good in my opinion.
· Color & design: ♥♥♥♡♡:
Despite the black ring, which I find too thick for my taste, I like this design more. It has that “transition” I spoke about earlier, and makes it look more natural and cute. I also think they look better with my eye color than the other lens. Sadly the brown color is not very visible, maybe because of my natural eye color, but they still look nice.
· Comfort: ♥♡♡♡♡:
Same as the previous one, this didn’t feel good either. A little less bad, maybe because they’re not as rigid (they are not as heavy colored), but still not comfortable. A note on this later.
💗 💗 💗 💗
·· CONCLUSION (both lenses):
I didn’t like these lenses at all; maybe the second one a little, but I’m not happy with them in general. I feel sad saying this but it’s my honest, personal opinion; I’m not always going to love everything :c I’m not a fan of brown lenses so that affects my opinion too, and well, I’m not a fan of dry eyes either. I guess they can be fine for a very short period of time if you can handle them, but I generally don’t recommend them. Sorry.
NOTE: regarding the comfort
This is the second pair of lenses I receive from Pinkyparadise. The first pair (which I haven’t shown here in the blog yet) were the most comfortable lenses I’ve ever worn. By this I mean I’m not blaming the company for the discomfort of these specific lenses, it’s a 50/50 situation so far. Maybe I got a bad batch, maybe my eyes just rejected these lenses, I don’t know. Just a quick note I wanted to make.
So yeah, that’s all… Feels bad to say negative things, but reviews must be honest right? That’s the point!
Use the code CRISTISAURUS for a free gift when buying from Pinkyparadise:
(Please make a screenshot if you use it; I entered the code, apparently it didn’t work for some reason, and when I emailed at them I had no “proof” I used it, they didn’t believe me and told me the code wasn’t used so it’s my fault So yeah… that pissed me off tbh. Next time I’ll screenshot -__- )
I want to review other lenses I got from Pinkyparadise a couple months before too, which are PERFECT and I really love them ♡ One of my top favorite for sure!
That’s all for now! See you in the next post ~ (*˘ ³˘) ♥
