Lens review: Princess Pinky Orange Werewolf

Hi guys!

Back when I cosplayed Ibuki I promised to make a review of the orange contacts that I wore for him and well, it has been quite a while so I figured it's about time I do it now.

I spent quite some time looking for yellow/orange lenses and finally decided to settle on the Orange Werewolf lenses, made by the Princess Pinky brand. These were my first obviously costume-y lenses and I kind of saw it coming that they would be very bright and opaque. They were. Then again, it's what I wanted!

All photos except the first one with the contact lenses in solution are taken in bathroom light by me. There is no color filters and that's to show how the lenses really look!

Lenses in solution. (left one shows "wrong" side)
It's super easy to tell which way you are supposed to put
them in the wrong side is considerably lighter!
Base curve: 8.6 mm
Diameter: 14.5 mm
Water content: 38%
Life span: 1 year (I recommend 6 months)

I like the design on these, they are mostly orange with a yellow circle closest to the pupil hole and soft spike-y black outer rims. They should be enlarging 14.5mm diameter but I have a hard time telling if there's any difference at all. xD Very slight size difference and I actually like it like this.

With just one lens in.
The pupil hole is rather small which means that barely any of your natural eye color shows through the center. One thing though, with these contacts I almost always have a minor blurriness and/or the corners of my vision are orange; then again, it depends on the light of my surroundings. It's not really a problem but it's noticeable, especially when I move my gaze. It doesn't really bother me though and otherwise these lenses are really comfortable if you ask me.

Both lenses in.

As you can tell these are really IN YOUR FACE bold no one who looks at you will miss seeing them. Super noticeable even from a distance!
I think they look really badass; I would consider wearing them out in town just to have people do double takes and/or freak out. :'D Especially with some fitting clothing. Mwoahahah...

And lastly I of course have the from-a-distance photos!



I like how wild these look, like some sort of wolf eyes; definitely a very cool pair to own if you ask me. Then again, I really love wolves. <3 I kind of wish I had more cosplays to wear with them than just Ibuki but I think these could look very cool for Inuyasha as well, for example. I want to cosplay Inuyasha someday, my first manga that I started collecting. ;w;

Short summary:

Color: 10/10 
Bold in-your-face color that's very noticeable from a distance.
Design: 8/10 
Solid simple design that looks like a wolf's eye. It's cool.
Opacity: 10/10
Currently the most opaque lenses I own. My real eye color is completely blocked out!
Enlargement: 5/10 
Doesn't seem to enlarge that much.
Comfort: 8/10 
Surprisingly comfortable for being more "crazy" contacts. Only minor problem is orange corners in my vision if I move my eyes and slightly blurred vision in insufficient light.
Naturalness: 0/10 
Good luck getting someone to believe these are your real eyes... xD

Howl and run, I'm out!

  2. Would these lenses appear "good" on dark eyes as well?? I found this link from Pinkyparadise...

    1. Hello!

      I'm pretty sure they would. These lenses are very opaque and don't let any of your natural eye color through. The color is so bold and vivid that you should have no problems! :)
