Hello there~ So… I’m going to review two Tiffany Contact Lenses for this post. This is my first contact lens review, and I know there are tons of contact lens review out there, and Non-beauty Bloggers usually just feels “meh” when reading contact lens revews BUT…I’ve been searching for a review of these lenses and I couldn’t find any. So I’ll review this and I hope this will be helpful to people who’s interested in these lenses but couldn’t find anything from Google.
I got my lenses from ILOVEFASHION Facebook Shop.The price was P250.00 per pair (that is, more or less $5) . It’s very cheap and it made me a bit skeptical at first. but it’s normal to be a little paranoid when buying online, isn’t it?
The seller was having internet connection problem at that time because of the typhoon, so it took a few days before she read my message, but overall the service is okay. She was kind enough to send the package on a Saturday, even if it says so on their page that orders will be shipped on business days. The package was bubble-wrapped and it comes with a super cute pamphlet (like a mini kawaii mag) about lens care. Sadly, I didn’t take a picture before opening it up >.
I noticed that Tiffany lenses are slightly thinner than other contact lenses. I guess that’s why sometimes it doesn’t automatically “latch” on the eye and sometimes the contact lens turns inside out while putting them on. It’s not enough to be a hassle for me, though.
The two contact lens I got, has the same …uh… specs:
Diameter:14.5mm diameter. It says 16mm on the bottle, but I’ve measured it and I’m very sure it’s 14.5mm
- Base Curve:8.6 Base Curve.
- Contents: Hydrophillic Contact Lens ( 55% 2-hemma, 45% water) immersed in a buffered, isotonic saline solution.
So off with the review~
The design looks very pretty up close but for me it looks a little strange when it’s viewed from afar. I was hoping that the diamond pattern will make my eyes look like they are sparkling, but instead it looks like my eyes have weird dots. I have a Diamond Pink from a different brand and I love it, but I guess with this one, my natural eye color peeks through the design, and ruins the diamond effect for me.
*Excuse the messy eyeliner*
I am more comfortable wearing large lenses. And this one has 8.6 base curve, which is perfect for me. The only downside is that after wearing it for 5 hours, my eyes gets a little reddish.
Not the largest I’ve used (I have a 15mm), but definitely large enough to give you doll-eyed effect. Look at the difference~
This is a great deal, considering the price. It’s just that, I think I prefer my lenses with thicker outer rim and I don’t think the design + black is for me. I recommend this for people who likes black circle lenses with a little edge.
And here’s another revew~
I love this one! It has a star-like design that highlights your iris and a thick rim. It’s in gray (which is what I usually get for everyday wear, it just feels like it’s the perfect color for me). It adds a little something to my eyes and it isn’t too noticeable unless you stare hard enough. It looks a little blue in pictures, but I guess that’s normal with gray contact lenses.
Same as the above.
I probably should have given this one a 4.6 because eve if it’s as big as the Tiffany Diamond Black, it looks a little bigger when worn. It’s because of the thicker black rim, I think.
Good price, good design and perfect for everyday use.
Here’s another look~ Taken from phone ~
I hope my review was alright~ Anyway, here’s a bunch of questions for you ~ Do you wear contact lenses? Have you tried this brand? What color do you prefer? What’s your fave contact lens, so far? Do you read contact lens reviews?
Take a sneak peek into the mixed-up mind and collected thoughts of a, yet again, another random stranger on the internet.
Here is where I dump, share, rant and rave my most personal feelings to my most useless thoughts, random ideas, poignant insights, my passion, addictions and obsessions, insanity, beliefs, reviews, cheap thrills, faves,everything cute and anything interesting.
So welcome to my little piece of cyberspace overloaded with pinkness. My virtual scrapbook. My digital note pad. My life preview.
