Circle Lens Review - Japan Barbie Eye Princess Lace Pink

Here is my review for Japan Barbie Eye Princess Lace Pink circle lenses, sponsored by Shoppingholics.com. These are the most comfortable circle lenses I have ever worn, it is too bad I don't really like the design.

The lenses came in a special plastic-figure case, with the bottles hiding within the figure. It is very cute, and I would love to get all three styles of the figures.

As for the actual lenses, they are the thinnest, most water-y lenses I have ever worn. I can't feel them at all when I wear them! The design is based on lace, and is very intricate and beautiful. I, however, find them a bit too unnatural, but I am sure there are fans of this designs out there!

The color is also more of a violet-purple than pink, and is quite dark because the black lace pattern takes up so much of the lenses.

As the lenses are so dark, the enlargement effect is quite obvious. I think these are around 14.6mm.

Here are some comparison pics with my other pink lenses to show how not-pink these are, just in case you want to get these lenses. First are the Dueba Big DM23 Pink. They are very subtle in their pink-ness, but you can still see how much more pink they are compared to the Princess Lace Pink.

Next are the VERY pink Vassen Super Glamour Pink. They both have the not-smooth outer edges, but the color in the Glamours are much stronger.

Here are all the lenses featured in the review. Clockwise from the top: Princess Lace right side up, Glamour, Princess Lace upside down, Big DM23. See how intricate the design of the Princess Lace is?
FINAL VERDICT:
Design: 7/10 - The design is very unique, but the color is "wrong" and I personally don't really like how dark and unnatural the design is.
Enlargement: 9/10 - Very noticeable enlargement
Comfort: 10/10 - Most comfy lenses ever, they were so thin!
TOTAL: 8.5/10 - These are very cool lenses, but not for me. :p

Thank you Shoppingholics.com for the lenses!

These lenses are so neat! The pattern reminds me of a doily :) I agree that the color isn't vibrant enough, boo! Really cool anyway, I might have to get myself a pair like this.
