I have blue-grey eyes, so the effect may differ on those with darker eyes.
The Angel Colour edge series is designed with a thicker, darker circle on the edge of the contact. This helps create the ‘bigger eyes’ effect.
Tsubasa Masuwaka has been a long time spokeswoman for Angel Colour and is often sporting their lenses, which I think helps prove just how well you can achieve the ‘Dolly-look’ with these.
Now onto the pictures…
Unless mentioned, all of these were taken late morning, in Autumn lighting. I have mentioned which were taken with/without flash.
No flash. No make-up.
No flash. With make-up.
No flash. Evening lighting.
The ever popular one in, one out photo.
I wanted to take this picture at the end of the day, so you could see them in a different light. Sorry for the stray bang hairs, and my deteriorating make-up.
Of course if you’re going for a natural look then you wouldn’t think of considering a pair of purple lenses. However, these ones managed to look more natural than I had expected – which is a good thing because the violet isn’t prominent until you get up-close. This means they’re perfect for an everyday look and I would happily wear them this way.
Even without the flash on my camera, these lenses give the perfect Dolly-look eye. I paired my lenses with some simple make-up and false lashes to achieve a more natural, grown-up eye. However they could easily work with dramatic/colourful eye make-up, which I thought was a big plus.
I haven’t worn lenses for a couple of months, so I was expecting them to feel out of place or slightly uncomfortable. However I found that once I had given my eyes a few minutes to adjust they felt very comfortable. Even when my eyes dried out slightly (I suffer from allergies) they weren’t itchy like some others, and just a few drops of solution made them comfortable again for the rest of the day.
Some people worry about the lenses drying your eyes out. Well, as mentioned if you carry around some eye drops you shouldn’t have a problem. If it is your first time wearing lenses, take it slowly and wear them for only a few hours each day so your eyes will get used to them. I wouldn’t suggest wearing your lenses for too long unless you know it will be ok.
I fell in love with these lenses as soon as I opened the bottle. I have been wanting a pair of violet lenses for a while, and these were so vivid. It also helped that various Gal models have recommended these lenses.
The Angel colour edge series – violet are comfortable, affordable and lovely to wear. They also blended well with my natural eye colour. I thought the overall look of the lenses when worn was gorgeous, and apart from wanting them a little bit brighter I have no complaints.
