REVIEW: VASSEN Super Glamour Violet (V2-16-VI)

Semi-Sponsored Post



VASSEN Super Glamour Violet (V2-16-VI)


The package came in a sturdy box. Very neat and organized. Usually I received lenses in Bubble-wrapped packages. To be honest, I love these box packages more because it feels more professional! =)


Once you open the package, my lenses are nicely packaged with styarfoam so that the vales won't break or shatter. It came with a free lens case at random color, which happens to be pink! YAY!
My Favourite color!



Comparing Flash and Indoor Lights. The color give off in the Flash photo is exactly the same as their promotional photo.



Comparing with lens and without lens. The enlargement factor is very apparent!


Other colors available in this collection:
Violet, Pink, Brown, Green, Grey, Blue

Directions of Use
(No instructions provided by the Company)
I usually like to soak my lenses in my regular contact lens solution for at least 48 hours. The solution in the vials are usually formulated for storage so it may be harmful for your eyes. After 48 hrs, I try to wear it 1-2 hrs at home just in case I encounter problems. This is especially important if you drive. (just an example) I'm a horrible driver so it won't make it any better if I have altered vision! hahaha

Review:
Vassen is a new circle lens manufacturer for me, and they were rarely reviewed so let's begin!

The first day, I wore them from 7pm-10pm, about 3 hours. Maybe because I had a long day already, by the time I take off my contacts, i can see the red vains started showing up. However, I didn't feel like my eyes were dry though. I decided to try them again the next day before I start my day to have a more accurate feel to them.

The second day, I wore them from 11-5pm. I find that they are comfortable and not extremely drying for my eyes. Compared to GEO lens, I would say Vassen are not as dry as them. I didn't get blurriness after 7-8hours of wearing them, whereas when I wear GEO lens, I have to keep blanking to get rid of the blurriness.

Color: I love it! It's my first time wearing Purple Circle Lenses. I saw my friends wear Purple lenses before and it always appeared grey or blue. I'm very happy with these because they are the perfect vibrant purple for me and don't look Aqua Blue or grey. Sometimes it appears somewhat Sea Blue in flash photos but in normal day light, it's very purple. I like that the color is very opaque on my brown eyes.

Design: I generally like it, what I didnt like was the fuzzy rim. My family has a history of a eye illness where i have a chance of inheriting the illness - symptoms includes a fuzzy border for our pupil (the dark eye area, not the whites) So when my dad saw me in these, he thought I started having that problem. Then he was relieved when I told him it was just the design of the lenses. That's probably the only thing I didn't like about the lenses. The irony is that, I actually picked these lense for this particular design - fuzzy rims. So I do think this is simply personal preference. There are many black rims and brown rims on the market, if you're looking for something different (like myself), these lenses are worth a try! =)

Enlargement: These lenses made my eyes look HUGE. hahah. I look quite awkward without make up on when wearing these because my pupils are so big and my eyes are so small and chinky *laughs*. So if you were looking for natural looking lenses, these are not for you. But I love the non-natural look. so these lenses go perfect for my liking :)

Customer service:
Ms. Patty from KoreaBigEyes.com was very helpful. I was sponsored with a pair of lenses of my choice where I paid for the shipping. I love how they were able to reply me within 24 hours every time I emailed them (most of the time, she replies within 4-6 hrs). They provided me with a few shipping options, but I chose $5 flat rate registered with tracking number since I wasn't in a rush. The package arrived in 13 business days. Usually any international orders to Canada takes approximately 14-21 business days. So it is slightly faster than the average estimated time. I'm quite pleased with that. (my biggest pet peeve is slow shipping, aren't we all?)

Overall: ♥♥♥♥♥ 
Product: 5/5 ♥ Fits with description perfectly, I love the enlargement and that it didn't over dry my eyes too much (note that these are 42% water content vs 38% most lenses on market)
Packaging: 5/5 ♥ Nothing broken, and it arrived sooner than estimated time.
Price: 5/5 ♥ KoreaBigEyes.com offers flat rate of $5 for any amount of lenses.
