Review: Princess Universe Soft Lenses (Mars)

Okee dawkee...

So it's gonne be my second chance to review softlenses from Princess Universe. I wrote about these in different color (click here). For me Princess Universe Soft Lenses answer my need in terms of their wide range of power and super bright colors.



The packaging is not my favourite though. Princess Universe Softlenses has their products packed in a bottle. So hard to open. But I wrote about how to open this kind of packaging. Check it out here.

 Princess Universe Soft Lenses cost me about IDR 130-140K (I forgot) and available in many online stores.




Spesification:
  • Manufacturer: Princess
  • Country: Korea
  • Dia: 15.00 mm
  • Water contain: 52%
  • Life span: 12 months
  • Power: plano to -15.00

Color system:



As I told you before, my favorite thing about Princess Universe Soft Lenses is their power which is available up to -15.00, super bright colors, and more importanly: the diameter is not too big.



The variant I bought was Mars, or red. For those of you who loves pretty patterns on your softlenses, you might reconsider purchasing this since they don't really have great one. Just some red shades blotted onto a piece of soft lens with thick black outter ring. But I really don't care, as long as I can have colored lenses, comfortbale to wear, and non-blurry vision.




Pardon my bald eyebrows here. As you can see, this softlens doesn't have that extra eye-enlarging effect. It sure is make your eyeballs look bigger, but not in an overwhelming kind of way. What I don't like is the black outter ring, it seems like it made my eyes absolutely look fake, if only it doesn't exist, then this softlens might have been perfect.


Some eye makeup I used along with this softlens:

Cut crease, literally.
I have made the tutorial of how to create this bloody eyes, check it out here.



My anime eyes.


I don't have any problem at all wearing this on daily basis because, although it's red, but the shade is not too bright and still looks wearable. At least they won't make you look too scary or something. When people pass you by, nobody would seem to notice your red eyes, unless if they look closely to your face.

But here's what I gotta say. This variant has lower level of comfort compared to my previous one in the pink shade (Andromeda). The same thing happened when I tried their brown shade. I don't know how this could happen. I mean, the same type SHOULD have the same comfort lavel, right? Anyone has a clue?

Well, however, compared to other colored softlenses, Princess Universe Soft Lenses are more comfortbale than any other colored lenses, at least for me. But I still won't recommend you to wear these kind softlenses for more than 6 hours of usage. If you have to do that, wear a clear one. Much comfortable, and a lot safer.

Review: Princess Mint Softlenses (Purple)

I have multi colored softlenses. Usually I picked what to wear by closing my eyes and picked them randomly. If I'm lucky enough, I can wear the right color for the right occasion. But if I'm not, you can guess what happens next. You know... pink lenses on wedding, or boring brown for hanging out. Something like that.

These babes were bought months ago as supplies. Since some of my collections are expired already, so I think I'll open these.


One thing I hate from Princess softlens is the packaging. Sheesh.... I hope they were packed in blisters. I usually have a hard time opening them by cutting my fingers.


Unlike her sister (Princess Universe, review here), these softlenses have the power maxed to minus 8 only. My diopter numbers are actually a bit more than that. But just a little bit. It is a small problem for me, though. But I've been wanting this series so bad. I guess I'll wear this when I don't have to drive at night.


I bought purple... kyaaa! Anyway, they're available in other colors: pink, brown, grey, blue, and green.

The pattern in close up. Well, you can't actually call this a pattern... it's more like a purple pigment blotted to a softlen. So don't expect to much of it. The enlarging effect is medium since there is no dark ring either.

This series were inspired by the eyes of those cute Powerpuff Girls characters' eyes.

I have been wearing softlenses for about 10 years, and began wearing colored softlenses since 5 years ago. Since then I have tried many colored lenses and no brand can beat Acuvue regarding their comfort. And for me these Princess series are the second best after Acuvue. I wore these for more than 8 hours, no solution drop, and didn't hurt my eyes. Other brands usually would hurt and make my eyes red even after wearing them for just an hour. Or even when they were brand new ones or claimed especially made for sensitive eyes. >_<

At the first times you apply this, it may not feel comfortable so you have to rub more with solution drop or even adding one drop of liquid into the lense before putting them to your eyes. I always, always stumble upon the application, unlike other softlenses that would feel great right away. 

The result is semi-bright, so don't expect natural looking eyes when wearing these, although the bright look won't be as obvious as Princess Universe series are. At least, if you're looking for bright colored lenses without worrying to look like a cosplayer, these ones are great findings. Although... Yeah this purple color is an attention catcher, and I don't care at all what others might think. But if you do, please choose color more suitable to your personality.

Some safety tips from me regarding colored softlenses:
  1. For beginners, choose the smallest diameter. Usually it's 14.5 mm. The larger, the less comfortable they are.
  2. Wear them not more than 4 hours at first. You can continue if your eyes doesn't react negatively.
  3. Rinse the softlenses with water solution before and after each usage.
  4. Do not rinse your softlenses with tap water or any liquid other than solution water.
  5. Do not use different brand of solution water for one softlens.
  6. Use eyedrop for softlenses whenever you feel your eyes dried, not more than 2-3 times a day. Application more than that may be harmful to your eye system.
  7. Wear them before wearing your makeup and remove them before removing your makeup.
  8. Before wearing them, make sure your softlenses are not inside out. The correct side usually will bend like a perfect bowl, but the incorrect one will look like a plate with its point poking outside.
  9. Do not, do not, do not wear torn softlenses nor expired ones.
  10. Softlenses are to be used by you only. Do not lend nor borrow them!


Verdicts:
  • Bad packaging, blisters are better though.
  • Poor patern.
  • Semi bright and unnatural look.
  • Medium enlarging effect (no dark ring).
  • Great comfort (at least for me).
  • Detailed spec:
    • Diameter : 15mm
    • Water Contain : 52%
    • Produced in : Korea
    • Life spam : up to 12 months, with max care.
  • Where to buy: various onlines stores.
  • How much: around IDR 150K (USD 16), price may vary.

Grades for these: 4.5 out of 5!

Examples on my eyes:



Left: with camera flash
Right: natural lighting



The whole face examples. Hope you can see it, i took it with camera phone in a moving car. Well, I never bring a camera along with me. Berat gitu looooh...

Review: Princess Universe Soft Lens Galaxy Edition--Andromeda (Pink)

Assalamualaikum,
I'm a huge fan of Marilyn Manson, Sarah Brightman, good cup of coffee, and soft lens! And since I meant this blog to be a beauty and fashion blog mainly, so I decided to do a soft lens review only LOL.

My eyes are sensitive to soft lens. So it was such a struggle for me to wear them. I had several eye irritations before caused by soft lens. Many people told me to wear glasses instead of soft lens because they were much safer. On the contrary, these eyes Allah gifted to me are, somehow, 'occupied' with special needs: Myopia and Astigmatism. With a VERY high diopter. Don't ask the number :)

To the people who suggested eye glasses, don't they know that wearing them can burden your ears it hurts? Don't they know the headache you had when wearing them? Don't they know that fake eyelashes would ridiculously stuck on the lens? Don't they know those glasses would drop when you're sweating heavily and your noses got slippery? Don't they know that no one notice when you wear pretty eye make up? You can't look pretty because my glasses are super thick! Sorry I got carried away :D

At first, it was hard for me to find the right soft lens for these special eyes of mine until I found these crazy color soft lenses:

 princess-universe










This is what they really looked like in actual light:




Specification:
Manufacturer  : Princess
Country : Korea
Dia : 15.00 mm
Power  : 0.00 to -15.00
Water content : 52 %
Thickness : 0.20  mm
Life Span : 12mos (with maximum care)
Color type  : Bright
Price  : Around IDR 140K/pair (USD 14)

See the bold red text above? Yup, besides their super bright colors, the power that span to -15.00 is another fun fact about this product, which is a bless for the people with very high diopter needs.
I got these babes from http://mygeolens.com/
This shop is awesome, I'm telling you. Nice customer service and quick delivery. You can buy soft lenses with different power for your left and right eyes. Actually I wanted the red ones, but since they were temporarily unavailable, I chose the cute sweety lunatic pinky ones instead. Unfortunately these series does not have prescriptioned lenses for Astigmatism. This shop have them tho' but in other series.

This is the front and back side of these lenses




The manufacturer claims that these had small pores and used Silicone Hydrogel material which made Oxygen delivered easily to your cornea so you will feel comfortable up to 12 hours of usage. For those of you who are still unsure about Silicone Hydrogel, you can check out this site http://www.allaboutvision.com/contacts/silicone-hydrogel.htm

When I first wore this, dang! It was super bright. Alhamdulillah Allah did not create pink as a natural eye color because some people would feel 'disturbed' seeing this. LOL. My first impression was that my pale face look even paler. There are many other pink soft lenses out there that look natural, but these are definitely not one of those. You have to balance it with heavy eye make up, at least wear bold upper eye liner, please, or else you'll be mistakenly presumed as a Pink Eye Syndrome victim :D

This is my 'pink eye' without make up




This is my 'pink eye' with heavy make up




Here's another application example, sorry can't show you the whole face because I did not wear my hijab.



See the difference?




I wear these in air-conditioned place (aka MALL :D). I was there for about 4 hours and didn't put any eye drop, it felt amazingly comfortable. First, I thought maybe because that was the first usage, any soft lens would felt comfortable on its first use. But I've been using these for about 3 months and they didn't feel less comfortable. Please note that I have very sensitive eyes. Of course I always rinse them carefully after each usage. I would like to share some tips about soft lenses usage some other time   :)

So far, this is my verdicts about these pinky babes:
  • very bright pink color
  • you have to combine it with heavy eye make up, at least bold upper liner
  • wide range of Myopia prescription choices (up to -15.00)
  • no Astigmatism prescription
  • medium comfort
  • not meant for natural look
  • please be self-confident when using it for daily uses
  • the pattern is too simple
  • low eye-enlargement 
Will I buy it? No, at least not for this color. I hunt for the red ones and I already have so many wishlist on my mind! ^_^
This is one of them: the monotone soft lens, Princess Mint.



See? Cute isn't it? LOL. I'll definitely have you one day!

Note: I write this based on my own experience. Result may vary to each individual.
