I'll kick off this year with a lens review, woop! Some of my circle lenses have expired at the end of last year... and I felt like opening new ones! :'D
It's so sad to throw away eyes. ;_; The lenses I'll be reviewing this time are SeeShell Dizoneye Green, although mine were relabeled under TheDollyEye.
Let's get started!
|Lenses in vials, flash photo. (the arm belongs to Hasakitsuki)|
|Lenses in solution.|
Base curve: 8.6 mm
Diameter: 15.0 mm
Diameter: 15.0 mm
Life span: 1 year (I recommend 6 months)
|Lens on finger – notice how far the design is printed from the edge!|
|With just one lens in.|
Enlargement seems to be slightly below average. It's just right for most casual looks but if you love to go all doe eyed loli or something, then it will fall a bit short. The dark limbal ring helps to pronounce your eyes and make them appear bigger.
Photo batch of the lenses ahead!
All photos taken by me. There's no color filters or such and that's so that the colors would be as true to real life as possible.
|Outside, back against light.|
|Outside, facing light direction.|
|Outside, cloudy winter afternoon.|
|Inside, room light.|
|Inside, facing a window during afternoon/sunset. *coughpolarnightcough*|

As far as comfort is concerned when I put them in I don't feel them at all for the first hours – it doesn't even feel like I have contacts on! I think this might be because they are so thin. But after a few more hours they did occasionally irritate my eyes (aka I keep poking the inner corners to relieve the discomfort etc) and I've had it happen that my vision was blurred for a second, until I blinked again. But I think these are perfectly fine to wear!
All in all I'd say that these are the best for days when you want to have slightly nicer eyes but don't want people to think "contacts! :O" the first thing they do when they spot you. Great for casual days, school and strolls in town. I don't think Dizoneye Green gives the visual impact needed for cosplay or any vivid fashion statement though, so don't expect them to be eye-catching or give you big dolly eyes. ;)
Subtle green shade; lens doesn't have much green on it though and might appear gray in insufficient light...
Average. It seems to be made to blend with and enhance your eyes for a natural look rather than to stick out on its own. The dark limbal ring is nice.
Not opaque, mostly just adds a tint of green to the edges of your iris.
Pretty average enlargement – not big but not super small either.
I don't feel them at all the first hours, it's as if I had no contacts on! They seem to dry a bit after 2,5-4 hours though.
Could almost be my real eyes, just slightly enhanced by a thicker/darker limbal ring.
That's about it for this time! If you have any questions just leave a comment! ^o^
