Circle Lens Review - G&G/Dueba Big DM23 Pink

Here is my review for G&G/Dueba Big DM23 Pink circle lenses. These are my second pair of pink lenses (the first being Beaucon Jewel Pink), and even though they are really pretty, they are still not pink enough! >:[

Here is what the bottle looks like:
And here is what the lenses look like when worn:

Natural light (next to window)
Direct Sunlight
Indoor light
Flash
The DM23 series is quite popular, and it is not hard to see why. The design is very unique, and makes the eyes "pop" while being quite natural. By the way, if you want to see full-face pics of these lenses, please see my Gyaru makeup tutorial in my last post. :)

The Big DM23 has a thicker outer ring than the original DM23, and as you can see below, the enlargement is excellent.

Unfortunately my Jewel Pink has dried up a long time ago, so here are some comparison pics with non-pink lenses. First up are the Max Pure Browns:

The DM23 seems to be slightly bigger than the Max Pures, even though they are both supposed to be 14.5mm.

Next up are the i.Fairy Ruby Reds. This series is much brighter in color, and comes in pink as well, so if you are looking for something brighter, you should look into them (I might too)!

Here are all the lenses worn in this review. Clockwise from the top: DM23 Pink upside down, Ruby Red, DM23 Pink right side up, Max Pure Brown.

FINAL VERDICT:
Design: 8.5/10 - Dammit still not bright pink enough!
Enlargement: 9/10 - Very dolly indeed
Comfort: 9/10 - These are even more comfortable than my EOS lenses for some reason.
TOTAL: 9/10 - Very cute lenses, gives a nice warm tone to your eyes, but if you want really pink lenses, these are probably not for you :p

Thanks for the review!! They're such a light pink I almost thought it was gray! >.<

Aw...they weren't as pink as I thought they'd be. Still really pretty though. I think if you wanted a pair of really pink lenses, EOS Sugar Candy Pink is the way to go. It's actually pink.

Thanks for the review!

hi........
i was browsing the internet for any reviews about certain circle lens and then i found your very interesting blog...how nice!! ^^

so you have tried both dueba big lens and i.fairy lens, how's the comfort between these two kinds? somebody said that the one from dueba is pretty dry for long time wearing. how's your experience? are their comfort comparable to japan barbie eye?

please let me know, i'm so desperate for deciding which to buy XD ....thank you ^^

woitS: I only have one pair of Japan Barbie Eye lenses and they are exceptionally comfortable. My i.fairy lenses are OK in terms of comfort level, so I think in comparison the Japan Barbie Eye lenses should be better.
