Vassen Kirei Blue Lens Review {Love Shoppingholics Sponsored!}~

Hello cutie pies!
Today I'll be introducing a new sponsor of mine: Love Shoppingholics! They sent me an email a little while ago asking if I wanted to review some of their lenses, and I did! ^_^
Love Shoppingholics is an online shop that sells mostly circle lenses, but they also have beauty products and other such things~ They have a wide selection of lenses and I had a hard time deciding which ones to get! They ended up not having the pair I wanted in my desired prescription, however they then offered to send me the Vassen Kirei Blue lenses which I agreed to because they're pretty~
So, thank you Love Shoppingholics for these lenses!
Let's start!
Before I get into anything, as usual, basic lens information~
Name: Vassen Kirei Blue
Brand: Vassen
Price: $23.90
Diameter: 14.5 mm (Enlargement effect 16-18mm)
Water Content: 45%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Shelf Life: 1 year opened
So, nothing too unsual about these lenses~ I find it interesting that they list the "enlargement effect" however, since it's not something I've ever seen before.
Also, before I talk about the lenses themselves, I'll talk about the service from Love Shoppingholics~

Shipping: The shipping took quite a while, longer than I'm used to. It took about a month or so for the lenses to arrive; granted the lenses were coming from Singapore. They also included a tracking number, which was nice~

Packaging: The shipping envelope it came in was nothing special, just a usual paper envelope.
Address covered by a butterfly because why not~
Inside that however.... is the best thing ever <3 <3
Nevermind the "Merry Christmas" packaging, just look how cute!!!
I love the little satchet and the ribbon that's on it <3 I'll need to find a cute use for it~
They also included a little thank-you card, which I thought was cute~
All the thank you!
They included a really cute lens case- elephants! And I find it convenient that they're blue like the lenses themselves~
Their little trunks are the cutest ;u;
The vials were wrapped in a foam-like material and they were pretty secure in there, so no need to worry about them breaking in transit~
The vials themselves are just typical circle lens vials- nothing special about them. The lids were quite pretty though~

Butterflies, flowers, and by awful prescription <3
Now, on to the actual lenses!
When I saw the design, I was a bit hesitant because it seemed really, really unnatural.
The back of the lens looks the same as the front~
The design (by itself) also isn't outstandingly pretty or anything like that, but on the eyes, it's a whole new story. I'll let you see for yourself.
Window Lighting
So. Pretty.

My eyes look really cartoon-like like this~
Window Light+Camera Flash

Dim Lighting
Well, more or less dim.
Aren't they gorgeous???
They're vivid, but not so vivid that you feel super unnatural wearing them. If you have brown/hazel eyes, like me, these look nice because the design has a ring of brown in the centre which allows the lenses to blend with your natural eye color. Since the lenses aren't super opaque, they don't cover your natural eye color completely, which allows them to be more natural than they would be if they were opaque. Where the lens is no longer on my iris it's evidently a much brighter blue, so if you have light eyes these would definitely pop more than they did on me. These are indeed a little bit larger than my natural iris, so the effect is cool because there's a slight ring of bright blue between the iris and the limbal ring~
Anyways, clearly I love this design a lot. So, here are some full pictures of me wearing them~

You can really tell they're blue from this photo~
I liked my eyeliner that day~

I don't know why but this is probably my favorite photo~
And a few more things about the lenses
Comfort: These are really comfortable! Even after wearing them for the whole day, I felt no problems~ Definitely one of the more comfortable pairs of lenses that I have ^.^
Enlargement: As you can see, these are really enlarging. Thus, I recommend you have some sort of eyeliner/eyelashes, since otherwise it might make your eyes look a bit like that of an alien.
To sum it all up, I really love these lenses, and although I was a bit skeptical of the design at first, I'm really happy I ended up with these lenses ^.^
Thank you for reading, and don't forget to visit Love Shoppingholics!
