Lens Village: Puffy 3 Tones Brown (Shinny Brown) Review & Giveaway

Can you guys believe it's Friday AGAIN?!?
And what's even crazier is that we're halfway past through the year.
IT'S AUGUST!!! WOW.

Anyways, I'm here today to introduce you guys to
http://www.lensvillage.com/.

What is LensVillage.com?

LensVillage.com is an online store that sell wide range of circle lenses, up to 400+ design and colors.
The products they carry are all Korea Food Drug Administration certified brand lenses such as GEO Medical, EOS, Dueba and Vassen.
They have also already gained some international organization which includes SFDA, CE, Thai FDA, PMDA, ISO 13485.


Florence reached out to me and allowed me to try their circle lenses.
I got super excited about this because I have been wanting colored lenses for quite a while now.

Since they are based in Malaysia, the shipping took about 2 weeks.
I admit, I kind of got a little bit impatient BUT it was totally worth it once my package was delivered.

What was inside:

- a box with the circle lenses inside
- 2 animal cases

Photobucket

The contacts were very well wrapped within a bubble wrap.
Even though the package was just solely paper, I like how the actual lenses were really secure within the box.

I recieved 2 pairs of circle lenses -- Puffy 3 Tones Brown & Puffy 3 Tones Green.

But I will only be reviewing one of them for you guys today.
(To see my review on the other pair, click
here.)

I had a bit of difficulty trying to open these jars which I take as a good thing because that means that the lenses were very well packaged. :)
It took me a while to figure out how to open it, so I'm going to give you guys a step-by-step:

1. Flip the cap of the jar as if you were trying to open it. This will break the metal sheet surrounding the foam.

2. Pull the metal sheet to the side to break it into two. Be careful with this step, you might cut yourself. The metal can be really sharp.

3. Pull the metal sheet off completely.

4. After that, you can just easily lift up the foam top of the jar. And TA-DA! You've got your circle lenses. :D

Puffy 3 Tones Brown (Shinny Brown)
$19.50

I wanted a color that will still look natural.
So I chose this shade of Brown. It's very different from my natural dark brown eyes, but not so much that it looks fake.

(and can I just say how cute these animal cases are? OH YEAH!)

Photobucket

As you can see, it's very different from my natural eyes.
It's actually more of a hazel color than a brown.
It has a pinkish-reddish inner lining and a golden outer shade.
It also succeeds on making my pupils look bigger, so thumbs up on that! :D

It's really easy to put on and take off.
It's super comfortable, I can't even feel it when it's on.
Sometimes, I even forget that it's there.
I really love how it looks. It's natural and it brightens up my face.

Photobucket

Overall, I give these lenses a 4.5 out of 5. :]

  20. Lovely giveaway,
    although I don't wear contacts that much because
    I have astigmatism and it would be really hard to read when I wear them.

  21. Can you believe I'm totally afraid of putting contacts in my eyes? I know, it's crazy. But these look pretty cute!
