I decided that i wanted a new pair of black lenses of a bigger size than what i previously had, which were GEO super magic blacks ( i believe they are around 14.8 mm diameter) and were definitely not big enough for me. I didnt see anything bigger on mycandyeyes.com so i searched around and found softlenseye.com and saw that they had 17.5mm lenses by Barbie Eye.
I paid under $50 for the lenses and express shipping from Malaysia, which isnt too bad. The lenses were 29.50 and shipping was 14.50. They were a bit more than i'm used to paying for lenses, but for the price, they are magnificent.
There was a small problem with my address and customer service was quick to email me and ask me to fix it so they could ship my lenses out to me. I was very impressed.
It took them just around 2 days to get here from the time they were shipped, and about 3 days total from order. one of the fastest shipments I've ever gotten from an Asian country.
this cute little guy was holding my lenses when they arrived. they fit snuggly inside his odd shaped head. they came in a cute black box, covered in japanese writing. i pulled him out, pried open his head and there were my little lens vials.
The top of the foil lids were imprinted with 'barbie eye'. a good sign to me that they werent knock offs, though i really have no idea how to tell if lenses are legit. anywhoo, it made me feel better about them.
A very cool thing about the little guy that my lenses came in was that his ears pop off and are lens cases. they worried me a bit since the lenses would be sideways, so i just left them off for now so they can soak properly in solution. its still pretty cool though.
As far as comfort goes, these are brilliant. they dont slide around alot, they dont sting even after only 3 hours of soaking, and they dont obstruct my vision. absolutely brilliant!
heres a quick comparison between my natural eye and one with a lens in (mind you this is in really bright light)
its a HUGE difference between size. i wish there werent such a huge gap for the pupil, since my eyes are very light and i wanted a very dark effect, but what can you do lol.
heres one more shot of me with both in.
overall, Softlenseye.com did an amazing job, one of the best shopping experiences ive ever had. i highly recommend them for circle lenses if you are looking to buy a pair. Barbie Eye is a great brand, very pretty in design and super comfy. <3
