So if you’ve been following my Twitter you’ll be aware that I’ve been testing out Circle Lenses!

So what are circle lenses? Basically they are coloured contact lenses which make your eyes appear bigger, they are very very popular in Asia especially with Hime Gyaru models. I’ve been interested in trying them for like 2 years but never got around to it until now when E-CircleLensoffered to send me some 😀

You can’t imagine how excited I was when I came home from Melbourne to a package from E-CircleLens!

Inside the package were 3 different lenses, some pamphlets and instructions, 3 cases and a cute little doggie travel kit!

How cute is this? The little cases for the lenses have bows on them!

They came with cartoon instructions showing you the do’s and don’ts of putting them in and caring for the lenses.

This is the little doggie travel case! He’s found his way to my handbag now!

The doggie opens up and inside is… a mirror, tweezers, a bottle for contact solution and a case!

All of the lenses come packaged really well in styrofoam, when you take them out they are in little glass bottles like this:

It took a bit of work to get the aluminum lids off but that’s probably because I’m incredibly weak heehee!

These ones here are the Aryan Ring Circles.They have a diameter of 14mm which is huge and they last 1 year.

This is a photo of me trying to put them in for the first time. Considering how un-coordinated I am, it’s surprising I didn’t lose an eye! It was a lot easier to do than I was expecting, I think if I can do it anyone can!

So what kind of difference do they make? Here is me with one of the Aryan Ring ones in and one eye natural. Big difference right?

And when you add some make up, they look awesome!

These ones look really dark but still have a burst of natural colour through the middle.

Here is a close up comparison between natural eye and made up eye with the Aryan Ring Circles:

The second set that they sent me are called Walkure Brown and they have a diameter of 14.5mm! These ones are my favorite because they are the absolute biggest! Here’s the comparison between my natural eye and the Walkure Brownup close:

These ones were slightly harder to apply because of the size but once they were in, they just look fantastic! The dark brown works really well with hime style as well which is great for me!

I was surprised how natural they looked on me as my eyes are actually green normally ^_^

From a distance they just look cute!

The third set I received was the Angel EX Greenwith a diameter of 14mm. I was excited about these ones because they were so natural looking and they really made the green in my eyes pop! It probably helped that I’m pretty sure I’ve seen them in Ageha as well 😉

It’s such a pity that these photos don’t seem to capture the real colour of these lenses, they are a really deep vibrant green in real life. I wore them to lunch the other day and got 3 compliments about my eyes, no one even guessed I was wearing lenses XD

DSC_0072_100221_7605 copy

They are darker than my natural eyes but the green really stands out!

DSC_0074_100221_7603 copy

Pretty!

So my review! Ok the quality of the packing was really good, the box arrived dented by a careless post office worker but the insides were still perfectly ok because of all of the packaging. The complimentary instructions they include are really easy to follow and well set out. I have never used lenses before and I managed to put them in very easily. I have to say that unlike some other resale companies I’ve dealt with, the staff at E-CircleLens were super helpful and really knowledgeable about their products. I couldn’t have been happier with the support I received. The actual lenses were really comfortable to wear and after I got the hang of actually putting them in I didn’t really notice that they were in during the day. On the first day that I wore the Angel Ex Green ones I actually forgot they were in, if James hadn’t reminded me I probably would have gone to bed with them in XD If you want your own sets, all of these lenses can be bought via E-CircleLensfor around US$40 and they last for 1 year if taken care of correctly.

I’ve made a fun little video tutorial to show you how to apply circle lenses, click below to see!

So in conclusion, my first experience with Circle lenses has been really positive, I’m definitely going to keep wearing them and I want to get lots more different colours to try out 😀

What do you all think? Do you wear circle lenses?
