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)

Review on Lens:
I promise this will be my last pair of pink lenses! HAHA This series is the same design as the Japanese Candy Magic Barbie King series. It is also the larger version of the GEO Angel Series. The design is extremely dolly and is one of my favourite pink lenses at the moment!

The color is not very opaque on dark brown eyes in indoor and outdoor light making them appear natural and not overpowering the pink. I think that the pink only becomes obvious in flash photography which is great because usually when I go to work, it's during the daytime so it's more appropriate.

The enlargement factor is very significant at 14.5mm diameter especially because of the thick black rim which makes my eyes huge!! *Love it* With these lenses, I can do minimal or dramatic make up and these lenses would still look very nice. *like natural beauty* HAHA. This is a bonus point for me because I can get quite lazy with my make up!

On comfort level, I find that it is a little drying approaching 6 hours of wear. It's not overly drying to a point where red veins appear though. It is a little blurry for me since it's not at my prescription (see why below in the customer service section). There's also a bit of sliding but I don't think it's significant because how big these lenses are. Other than that, I really enjoy these lenses and looks forward to wearing them for the beautiful summer season!!!

It's really interesting, my package came from Thailand. I read other blogs, and come of their packages came from Hong Kong instead.

Customer Service:
Chloe, owner of http://www.eyecandylens.com/, helped me with my entire process of this sponsorship. Since I wasn't able to find any pink lenses which fits my prescription (-8.50 both eyes) on the website, she provided me with some recommendations for my prescription. She also asked, if her inventory doesn't have -8.50, if -8.00 would be acceptable. I guess so, -.50 off should be okay. *blames my terrible vision*

I liked that she was patient and willing to look up for inventory for me but I wished that her store carries ranges of prescription lenses because I found out that this series actually makes lenses up to -10.00.

The package got sent out on February 11, 2011 and I received my tracking number as well. I got my package on April 4th, 2011. It took approximately 7 weeks to deliver which is a bit long for a pair of in stock lenses. Also, I wasn't able to track down the package with the tracking number provided so I had no idea where it went all this time. When I finally received it, I noticed that it was only wrapped with one layer of bubble wrap where usually there is one layer from the envelop itself and one layer for the lenses. Thankfully it did arrive and nothing was broken.



Note that the photo does not say the booklet is by DUEBA.
Chloe didn't answer how I can tell from the vials that the lenses are real or not, but Dueba doesn't make those securite checks stuff, so I guess this part really isn't Chloe's fault either.

I think the responsiveness to emails is not too great. Before the package even got sent out, I had to send a few emails each time because she won't respond. This is mentioned in the above email **Please excuse my spelling, I forgot to spell check!**  However, I do appreciate that she takes responsibility for it because I have encountered people who just doesn't care.

Finally, again this is mentioned in the above email, the information on the website is incorrect. Actually to this day where I have already contacted Chloe about it, the information is still there unchanged. I have attached a screenshot of it below. To be honest, information about lenses needs to be correct because these are eyes we're talking about. Unlike clothing, if the info for sizes are off, the most would be the clothes don't fit. However, if the lens info are wrong, they can directly affect our eyes. I'm very picky when it comes to lens manufacturers because I can feel the difference between the makes.


I'm thankful that Chloe is willing to look into my inquiry email because, wow, you have no idea how freaked out I got at one point. Can you imagine?! I was JUST about to write a review and I started suspected a potential fake pair of lenses. Thank goodness, mystery solved. By the way, the last email Chloe sent to me as a reply to my inquiry was within a few hours, this is also what I mean by she takes responsibility and acts accordingly. So I do like this part very much.


Overall on Lenses: ♥♥♥♥ 
Product: 5/5 ♥  Beautiful Design, SO DOLLY! LOVE!
Packaging: 4/5 ♥ Nothing was broken when received, wished that it was packaged with more bubble wrap because it was a bit sloppy.
Price: 4/5 ♥ I think that eyecandylens.com's prices are a little pricey but they do provide free shipping with tracking number.
