Review: Lensvillage The Dolly Eye Crayon 217 Green Lenses

The Dolly Eye Crayon 217 Green Lenses were provided to me for sponsoring by LensVillage weeks ago. My apologies for the late review! I love green eyes, but it is difficult to have natural looking green eyes with lenses if you have dark brown eyes naturally. Usually the colors don’t come through nicely, or it looks way to artificial, so you only can wear them for cosplay, costume partys or Halloween. Let’s see how these lenses by The Dolly Eye turn out!

The Dolly Eye Crayon 217 Green Lenses

I wear my regular contact lenses a lot, so my eyes are in general used to wear contact lenses. Some words about my eyes in advance: My prescription is -0.25 and -0.5, which is why I choose plano lenses mostly, because these small steps of prescription are usually not available for fashion lenses. Also, my eyes have astigmatism, which is the reason that lenses which are not adjusted to my base curve might feel uncomfortable more quickly than for normal eyes.

I received these lenses from The Dolly Eye from  LensVillage. The lenses came in the typical vials, together with a buisness card and a regular lens case. I got the lenses without prescription. The vials are really cute from their design, because of the colors and the hearts on the labels. You can find the description of The Dolly Eye Crayon 217 lenses >>here<<.  They are also available in 5 other colors: blue, grey, brown, pink and violet. Here are the properties for the lenses:

Diameter : 14.8 mm
Water Content : 38%
Base Curve : 8.6 mm
Life Span : 1 Year Disposal

Here are my thoughts on The Dolly Eye Crayon 217 Green Lenses:

Design: 
The green of the lenses is a darker green color, almost turquoise. It is a pretty color and shows off on my dark eyes, too, but it doesn’t blend in naturally. It will look better on blue or green eyed persons and will probably intensify their natural eye color.
Comfort:
These lenses are not comfortable for m personally, but that is because of the base curve. The material of the lenses is soft, so I think that people with normal base curve will be able to wear these lenses for some hours, before feeling their eyes being dry.
Enlargement:
It has a visible enlargement, and since the color stands out heavily against my natural eye color it looks also dolly, almost creepy :D Perfect for Halloween or Cosplay.

These won’t be the lenses I would wear daily, rather these are better suited if you want to make an appearance. I think they can be also suited for a upcoming halloween costume. You can find The Dolly Eye Crayon 217 Green Lenses at LensVillage for US$ 19.50 >>here<<.

    I am finally free to browse other blogs! Must catch up on all your pretty posts :). These lenses look so stunning and cover your brown eyes so well! Sucks that the payoff is poor comfort. Most cosplay events go for a whole day so I think lenses like these would only be good for a photoshoot :(
