Circles Lens Review: Vassen Little Mermaid Ocean Blue (+ Pictures)

So my circle lens finally arrived! I actually feel that it took longer. Hmm. Maybe it’s because I was expecting them any day, haha. But they still arrived very quickly!

As a reminder, I got the Vassen Little Mermaid Ocean Blue, plano – because I honestly don’t remember my prescription. I had bought these from Pinky Paradise as a gift to myself and to start myself off with a circle lens addiction. Er um. Here’s the information about the lenses:

Hmm. Perhaps I have to warn that I’m not wearing any makeup because, well, I’m lazy. That’s really it. Sorry, if you were looking for those types of pictures. Also I have yet to own a pair of false eyelashes so I guess that’s another thing I have to “warn” about. Haha… Well. I’m just so excited that I just sort of rushed it. Whatever, I do what I want!

Anyway, I did a quick comparison picture to see whether they enlarged:

Such a difference!

The enlargement is obvious but I don’t think that’s really a bad thing. Hmm. I really like how they came out though!

Also, I must note that the only reason my left eye looks red is because I always have trouble putting in my left contact. Always. It took a while but I got it in! I also waited about 10 minutes for my left to get used to it and for it to clear up as much as I could. Believe me, it was much redder before.

All in all, I am extremely satisfied with these lenses! I love the color, the comfort level! I don’t really have any complaints about it at all. I mean, at first glance it seems like it could be more purple than anything (especially under dim lights) but it comes out as a natural (as natural as it could be, I guess) blue on me that I’ve always dreamed about – and what’s even better, they’re from a mermaid line! Mermaids are truly my favorite types of mythology. ♥

Enlargement 10/10 – These enlarges my irises just fine! It’s kind of obvious that I’m wearing contacts with these on but I really don’t find that uncomfortable!
Color & Design 10/10 – I was worried that my dark brown eyes wouldn’t bring it out but thankfully that wasn’t the case! The color itself seems like it could be purple under certain lights (but little did the makers of Vassen realize that I actually really like purple so it’s a win-win). The design is clear and extremely pretty! I adore these! It really goes with the theme of “Ocean Blue”!
Comfort 10/10 – These are extremely comfortable! I feel like these are just like any old prescription contacts that I used to wear back in the day! I could definitely get used to wearing these! I just wish my eyes would get used to it and stop blurring themselves out.
Overall 10/10 – These are absolutely perfect! Everything is amazing and I’m so glad I made this purchase! I think I’ll probably invest more into Vassen products in the future!

And now the moment you’re waiting for! Just look below for the other pictures that I decided to take with these on!

Happy Birthday to Me~!

Well! Today is finally my birthday. It’s not that great because, with my family, it’s extremely complicated. All my friends are either on the Internet or in a completely different town so I’m just sitting here.

However, I do have extra money in pocket and instead of getting something from this wishlist, I got myself something that I didn’t think I wanted till I saw it.

You see, I’ve always had a fascination with mermaids since I was a little girl so I was skeptical about the colors “Ocean Blue”, “Seaweed Green”. So I’ve heard of Vassen with their interesting designs on their circle lens. But when I saw the Vassen Little Mermaid Ocean Blue lenses, I just had to have them. So! I have purchased my first circle lens!

Granted, I did read some reviews (review 01, review 02, review 03) and I was sort of surprised that not a lot of people have them. Is it the price? Probably… But whatever.

I also talked to Hazuki about Vassen because she’s worn their products before! ^^ And I’ve also wore contacts before so contact care won’t be new to me.

I think the only new difference is the fact they’re color and they’re going to possibly enlarge my eyes a bit more. And I also ordered them in plano. Maybe I’ll start a new trend of megane Gyaru! Haha…Well, that’s all I want to say. I better go out to eat before it gets any later!
