In the Pursuit of Fabulous- Review of Candy Magic Big Size Green

Hello my lovelies,
     While I have always been obsessed with makeup, I have just recently come across the world of Circle Lenses. Circle lenses are colored contact lenses that give the eye a bigger almost doll like appearance. The really great thing about these lenses is that they are cosmetic so you don't have to pay an arm or a leg for them. And as an added bonus, you don't have to visit an optometrist and jump through hoops in order to get a prescription. Now if you need a prescription, never fear my lovelies, lots of styles are available with prescriptions. So for all you dark eyed beauties (like myself), you can now have the stunning bright brilliant lighter colored eyes you have always wanted on a decent budget anytime you want. 
   I recently ordered the Candy Magic Big Size Green from EyeCandy Lens . For years, I have always wanted brilliant emerald green eyes and I had to have them. The shipping was decent, especially coming from overseas.( Now remember if you order from them you will have to be home to sign for the delivery or go pick it up directly from your local post office.) I promptly tore open the package and opened the precious little vials and anxiously waited while my lenses soaked overnight. I popped these lovelies in.While they were extremely green and vibrant in the vials, I was slightly disappointed that they did not show up as brightly as I wanted against my dark brown eyes. The green is noticeable close up in bright sunlight or from the flash of a camera but not from a distance. They were extremely large and even though my husband couldn't notice the color difference when I first put them of he did mention that my eyes looked "weird". My eyes are gigantic in these lenses. Now in all honestly I thought that these lenses were going to be really uncomfortable due to how large they are.Surprisingly, these lenses are extremely comfortable. I have worn them for hours without any irritation.  So, Dreadful gives the Candy Magic Big Size Green Lenses the following ratings..

Enlargement-9 out of 10 bats
  My eyes look almost alien in these lenses. People will do a double take, even if they can't tell the color, from the size of your eyes.

Color and Design- 7 out of 10 bats
   The color of these lenses are really beautiful but didn't show up well against my dark eyes unless in sunlight or from the flash of a camera. However, I do think that these lenses would be absolutely stunning on someone with lighter colored eyes.

Comfort-9 out of 10 bats
  These lenses are quite comfortable to wear. They did initially float around when I first placed them in, hence the 9 out of 10 bats.

Overall- 8 out of 10 bats
  They are quite comfortable and will enlarge your eyes, however if you have darker eyes they will be as vibrant in regular light from a distance.

Until next time my dears...
