Candy Lenses Review

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another review.  I'm a fan of wearing colored contact lenses or circle lenses from time to time.  I recently tried out some new pairs from www.candylens.com and I wanted to share my review and of course pics.  It's crazy how you can completely change your makeup look with a pair of lenses.

You may have noticed me rocking circle lenses in the last few videos.  I was testing them out from a company called www.candylens.com .  I've tried out a lot of suppliers of lenses before and was definitely not disappointed with the products from this company.  I really love wearing circle lens on special occasions or days when I want to look a bit different.

The contacts come nicely packaged in super cute decorative boxes that are securely bubble wrapped.
You also get these adorable cute animal themed contact cases which actually do a good job of holding the moisture in.  I've had issues in the past with my lenses drying out in the cases provided so I was relieved that these didn't have that problem.

I like multi-toned lenses like this - darker gray on the outside and lighter brown in the center.
  
I've tried pink lenses before and they're actually really nice on...they don't look pink, they give more of a rosey tone to your natural eye color.
I like for lenses to have a darker outside ring because they look more natural on my darker eyes.


PROS
-easy way to change your look
-makes your eye makeup really stand out
-temporary
-super cute packaging
-comes with super cute lens holders
-large range of prescription strengths
-many styles to choose from

CONS
-i can only wear the larger lenses for a few hours before they start to irritate my eyes
-available online only

The contacts can really spruce up a makeup look - here is the gray pair
Here is the pink pair
Here is the gray and brown pair

Sometimes the contacts will irritate my eyes after a few hours, you'll see them looking a little red here in the same gray pair


You can find these lenses at http://candylens.com/ .  They also have a lot of other Asian Beauty brands for products like false lashes, BB cream and eye makeup.

ive seen a review on these before now honestly do they fit properly??
the Brown ones look best, but the bottom ones look huge...do they all have the same fit??
I love to wear contacts and havent worn them in years since some are better than others i need some for more than longer than a 2 hour wear!

since they're circle lenses they're supposed to be bigger to give a doll like effect...diff lenses list the diameter so if you want a more comfortable fit and subtle look you can go for a smaller diameter, or maybe circle lenses aren't for you and you should go for regular colored contact lenses
