Lens review: Vassen Sweet Bliss Brown

Hello peeps ~

Today's review will feature the Vassen Sweet Bliss Brown, also commonly known as Vassen Cloud Nine Brown. This is definitely a cosplay and j-fashion lens if you ask me, it looks really 'anime' and has a vibrant color!

Let's roll!

Base curve: 8.6 mm
Diameter: 14.5 mm
Water content: 42% 
Life span: 1 year (I recommend 6 months)

These lenses have this really bold, striking black rim with black lines running along it that creates a cartoony effect. The coloration is unique on these as it seems to be done in this kind of "teary eye" blocks with different transparency levels which makes it so that it's not a solid, fake-looking color when worn. Your real eye color will show through at the transparent lines between each colored block but it actually gives a nice effect. 

One lens in.
Vassen lenses are typically pretty big and these are no exception. The design of the lenses is lovely and it stands out with its great color coverage, bold shade, super cute and animated look. One thing to note is that this seems to be the kind of brown color that can look extremely different depending on the lights! The color is intense and it shows up really well and the lenses provide distinct dolly eyes.

Comfort is decent, it's not the best I've had but it's certainly not the worst either. I don't have any notable problems getting them on and I don't feel them much once worn (there is still the slight "something's in my eye" feeling) but they seem a bit unpredictable with the dryness. I have a hard time grading comfort accurately as my eyes are so stinkin' dry but I'd estimate anything between 2-4 hours to be reasonable for these, assuming your eyes are just as sensitive and dry as mine, lmao. For more "normal eyes" you can add 2 hours, probably. These are not bad by any means, actually quite average.

To sum it up this is a great lens if you like really bold and colorful lenses with a lot of 'pop'. It's definitely something to consider for cosplaying and for most funky youthful fashion dudes and dudettes out there. These lenses make my eyes look youthful and somehow alluring and the vibrant brown color is really nice too! If you like brown lenses that steer toward the more unnatural and fantasy looks then these should serve you well.
