Circle Lens Review - EOS G-208 "Dolly Wink" Brown (sponsored by ILoveCircleLenses.com)

This is my review for EOS G-208 aka Dolly Wink Brown circle lenses, sponsored by ILoveCircleLenses.com. These are the lenses worn by the Gyaru model Tsubasa Masuwaka for promotional pics for her Dolly Wink lashes, hence the "nickname" for the lenses.

Before I begin, I want to point out that I have received lenses from two different batches, so they are a bit mismatched. This point will not affect how I review the lenses though, but it is something you might also encounter.

The Dolly Wink Brown have a very simple design, similar to the Beaucon Jewel: A thick black outer ring with a fading ring of color within. It gives good definition to your eyes and the color blends in nicely with your own eye color.

Since the black ring is very prominent, the lenses give good enlargement effect to your eyes. Some might find them a bit disturbing looking though! :p

Here are a few comparison pics with other popular lenses I own. First up are the GEO Honey Wing/Olive Browns, which has a similar thick-outer-ring design. The Honey Wing are a bit more natural looking but seems smaller. They are a warmer brown color too.

Another lens with a very strong outer ring are the Barbie King Size Browns. The design of the King Size are more intricate, but the brown tone is similar to the Dolly Winks.

Here are all the lenses featured in this review. Clockwise from the top: Dolly Wink right side up, King Size, Dolly Wink upside down, Honey Wing. Even when not worn, you can see that the two lenses are a bit mismatched.

FINAL VERDICT:
Design: 8/10 - A very simple yet effective design, which might give someone a "fish-eyes" feel.
Enlargement: 9/10 - Noticeable enlargement, nicely defines your eyes.
Comfort: 8/10 - Slightly thicker than my other lenses.
TOTAL: 8.5/10 - I like these lenses quite well, it's too bad they look so mismatched...

ILoveCircleLenses.com is also having a promotion: When you purchase over $50 worth of lenses (about two pairs), you will get a pair of criss-cross Korean false lashes!


Thank you ILoveCircleLenses.com for the lenses!

I don't like how obvious the dark circle is around the otherwise simple design of this contact. That sucks that they didn't match, they do look pretty nice on you.

Hm. I don't know how I feel about the dark rim around the lenses but it doesn't look too bad :) Very simple, which I like.
Have a great one! x http://xnta.blogspot.com/

I own the blue ones of these and I have to say that they a quite different from other lenses since there isn't much pattern to it.
I love these brown ones.

I have the same ones but they look a lot brighter than yours (more like the one on your left; our right). The pink ones I got with the brown ones are like yours--they're mismatched because they're from different batches. Oh well, right?
