I’m still at a nearby hospital caring for my baby bro. I was tasked to stay the night here. Good thing I have my laptop with me. Is it weird that I find blogging at hospitals at night very motivating? I dunno.. might be because I have nothing else better to do while waiting for the next rounds. I just hope I muster enough courage to take the elevator at this time of night to go down the ground floor and get coffee. Spooky! >.< Enough about me, how about you? How’s your Friday night ladies? 🙂
Anyway, before sleepiness catches up on me, here’s a review on one of the most recent pair I got from Dull to Doll. It’s been a while since I last posted a review on contact lenses but I’m hoping my personal photographer would now have the time to take pictures for my pending reviews. 🙂 Let’s start!
Water content: 42%
Base Curve: 8.6 mm
Diameter: 15 mm
COLOR & DESIGN:
The word “cameo” depicts carvings on precious stones in such a way that the pattern would give it different depths. This characteristic is demonstrated well by the brown and black gradation that represents shadings and dimensions. However, the overall pattern looks more like a flower than carvings to me and I don’t mean it in a bad way. I honestly like the design and the color – brown contact lenses have always been in my comfort zone.
The color looks light but once worn, it meshes well with my eyes. It tones down and looks natural but with a little oomph when seen up close. The dark outer rim emphasizes the size which I’m not very happy at first but now that I think of it, it makes my eyes look more expressive and, dare I say it, “puppy dog”-ish. 🙂
You know me, I hate anything that makes my eyes look big and creepy. So when I got this random pair from Valerie of Dull to Doll my initial though was “is she testing me?” LOL! I admit it was very difficult for me to wear this at first. And the dark rim did not helping at all! It was making my eyes look doll-like. If you’re a cosplayer or just a big fan of animes, you’ll definitely appreciate this.
As for me, it took me a lot of convincing to finally wear it. It looked weird at first probably because I’m not used to wearing contact lenses bigger than 14.5mm or 14.8mm max. It took a lot of getting used to but in the end, it grew on me. This is now my favorite pair.. well, next to EOS Flower in Blue (Read review HERE), that is.
COMFORT & VISION:
This is not the comfiest pair I’ve tried but it’s alright. I was bothered by the size at first – I was very aware of the contact lens because I can feel the outer rim moving around ever-so slightly. Well, maybe that was just me adjusting to the size of the contact lens. This IS my first 15mm pair, you know. There was also this one instance when the vision from my left eye became blurry.. nothing major though. I just needed to rinse it again. And then there’s the first time of use – make sure you rinse it a couple of times first before putting it on the first time to avoid itchiness.
Overall, I did not experience any irritation or redness just as long as I allow my eyes to rest after a couple of hours of wearing contact lenses. There was no dry feeling or dizziness too. For the blurriness, that was a one case deal. It never recurred so I’m good. 🙂
Now this is what EOS Cameo in Brown looks like when worn:
Okay, an obligatory selfie (or two) to show you how EOS Cameo in Brown looks like. Forgive the awkward make face.. I’m obviously no good at it. *fishy face* 😛 The color and the design looks natural but the size is a dead giveaway… I like it though. It gives my eyes that pretty, sparkly dough-eyed effect. 🙂
