Today I am reviewing a product which was kindly sent to me by the lovely people at Pinky Paradise. Pinky Paradise is the largest online supplier of circle lenses.
I, as a make-up artist am a large fan of wearing coloured contact lenses. I love giving my aesthetic an alternative, alien look which in my opinion, is heightened by using circle lenses. Because of this I leapt at the chance to work with Pinky Paradise and chose to review the gorgeous looking Vassen Dolly Plus Red Circle Lenses. Because who doesn’t love red contacts??
The lenses arrived in sealed glass phials which were securely wrapped in packing foam. I was also given the single CUTEST lens case ever. I genuinely love macaroons and a blue and yellow macaroon contact lens case is just so adorable. I was also given a set of velcro hair grips which are really useful for keeping hair out of your face when applying makeup or inserting contact lenses.

The colour of the lens is REALLY vibrant. I think because of how the lens is printed they suit darker eyes better. If there is such a thing as a “natural looking” bright red circle lens it is these. They really blend in with dark eyes and they give such an ethereal, vampy effect.
These lenses have a 15mm diameter which gives a drastic enlarging effect to the eye.
