Gothic Crayon

[Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I received the product for a review purpose, but the opinions are my own based on my experience.]

Hey bumblebees! Whoaaa, can you believe it's August already?! I feel like time flies so fast, faster than ever. A year ago around this month I was traveling to my dream city, while this year, I'm waiting for my thesis defense. I'm pretty curious what am I gonna do around this month next year :D

Okay, so I'm going to share my new circle lenses that were sent by Thedollyeye.com. I received two different sets with such color that I've never tried before, hazel and violet. As you probably know, I only wear something neutral like gray and brown, so I was wondering how it'll look on me ^^

The Dolly Eye gothic 3 tones review
The Dolly Eye Gothic 3tones in hazel and Crayon 217 in violet.

First of all, let me apologize to you that I don't have the packaging picture. I was messed up that time just because it arrived at my place altogether with my another circle lens sponsor so I jumped into my own conclusion that these ones are probably from the same sponsor. Moreover, the sender name was not The Dolly Eye and there was no name card attached inside as well, so that explains why I was confused T^T Even so, I realize it's such a stupid mistake because the bottle said The Dolly Eye and stated the website too -_-

I do still remember how it looked like when it came, though. The package arrived in a bubble wrapped brown envelope. Inside of the envelope was the circle lenses wrapped tightly with a magazine paper and I received a free case too.

Specification of The Dolly Eye Gothic 3tones:

Lifespan: 3 months disposal

The curve.

Design: 3 out of 5
This lens has 3 tone colors; gold, yellow, and khaki. It has bright colors that appear well in my very dark brown eyes. However, one minus thing about this lens is that I spot the pixelated design, if you know what I mean. I just don't really like that because it looks a bit unnatural up close.

Enlargement: 4.5 out of 5
It has an extremely thin limbal ring to give a slight enlargement effect, and as you can see at the pictures above. I think the enlargement is just perfect for my small eyes despite the pixelated design :)

Comfort: 2.5 out of 5
The material feels as soft as my monthly lenses, but I had a hard time inserting the lens on my eye. I need to reapply it a couple of times because it hurts at the beginning dunno why. I can wear them for 5 hours with a couple of eyedrops at first application and after 3 hours.

Overall: I don't really like the pixelate texture of this lens and the fact I have comfort issue makes me feel like this lens is just not for me. However, if you look it in distance, this lens looks natural and gives a bigger looking eye.

Price: USD 18 per pair

Let's move on to another pair! This is a color that I've always wanted to try ever since high school! It's violet, my bumblebees!! One of my favorite colors after pink, white, black, and brown.

Specification of The Dolly Eye Crayon 217:
Power Range: 0.00 ∼ -10.00
Diameter: 14.8mm
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Water Content: 38%
Lifespan: 3 months disposal

The curve.

Design: 4 out of 5
This lens has 2 tone colors; black and violet. The design is very unique and I think the inner black ring is kinda cute when it's worn on people with light eyes. Not sure if it's gonna show up or not since it's black colored. I like the design, it makes my eyes sparkling and the violet color apparently doesn't look weird on me. I like it!

Enlargement: 4 out of 5
With diameter 14.8mm, I can say this enlargement effect looks quite big to me despite the thin limbal ring. However, I'm okay with the enlargement effect because this lens has a cute design that I like.

Comfort: 2.5 out of 5
Just like the Gothic 3tones, the material feels as soft as my monthly lenses. I had a hard time inserting the lens on my eye, and I had to reapply it a couple of times because it hurts. I can wear them for 5 hours with a couple of eyedrops at first application and after 3 hours.

Overall: Unfortunately, this lens aren't comfortable to wear. If only I don't experience comfort issue like this, I wouldn't mind to purchase another color with my own money because I simply like the design.

Price: USD 28 per pair

Lens care tips: Treat your circle lenses gently, wash your hands before application, rinse & disinfect each time you remove them, and dispose them when they start to cause dryness. Even if this lens has yearly lifespan, I won't use it for one year, I'll probably dispose after six months usage. I write the first time usage date of each lens on the back of the lens case (with a sticker and marker of course). I always insert and remove my lens from the left eye too, it has become a habit for me so I won't mix up the left and right lenses. This is the great way to avoid eye infection.

Last but not least, Thedollyeye.com offers free shipping worldwide by standard registered mail! Don't forget to check out their sister's website too at Coseye.net for more collections!

  9. They look nice. :) The design is about not natural, but the color shows well. It sucks that the comfort isn't that good though. >.< Comfort is definitely my deal breaker in liking the lenses. :\ Thanks for review!

  13. Both lenses look really pretty on you, especially the second one! In my opinion, The violet colour nicely compliments your makeup :) I haven't tried contacts that have multiple tone colours yet but I am considering them now after reading your review~ It's a shame though that they're not comfortable to wear :( Thanks for the detailed review!
