Hello! I have a new circle lens review to share with you today, which has kindly been sponsored by LoveShoppingholics (formerly known as Shoppingholics). They sell a big range of circle lenses, as well as a lot of pretty makeup and other beauty accessories.
This review is on the very pretty Vassen Diamond 3 Tone lenses, in brown. The pattern is very striking, resembling the many facets of a diamond, giving a 'sparkle' effect to the eyes. They're quite lovely!

|You can see the 3 tones in the name comes from the brown, gray and black 'shard' pattern on the lens|
The overall presentation and packaging of the parcel was very cute and sweet, and really brightened up my day ^^
I love it when companies go to that extra effort to make a good impression~
Now, onto the lenses!
~COLOUR & PATTERN~
Even though these are classified as brown lenses, it actually has three tones overall - an orangey-brown, black, and grey. The three colours appear to be randomly but proportionately distributed on the lens, but when worn, the overall strongest colour to appear is the brown.
I really love this colour, when the lighting is the brightest - these lenses lighten my dark brown eyes into a more honey brown, which is lovely. In dimmer lightings, these lenses do tend to look darker, and not as vibrant.
The pattern is really cool - it has a shard-like pattern, very much like the many facets of a gem or diamond, which really do make the eyes 'sparkle'! I think the effect is sooo pretty - but again, it looks best in very good lighting.
I find the comfort level to be quite good - the water content of these Vassen lenses is 42%, higher than many other lenses which only have 38%
I still need eye drops around the 4 hour mark though, which is common with my other lenses too.

Yes! These lenses I found to be very enlarging - the vial states the lenses to be 14.5mm, which surprised me at first as these lenses are big compared to my other 14.5mm lenses. After a bit of research, it seems the actual diameter is 15mm - contact lens manufacturers all use a different measuring standard, so measurements can vary across brands.
I like bigger lenses, so I'm very pleased with these. However, those who prefer smaller diameters may find these too enlarging.
I also like that these lenses are enlarging, but don't need to rely on a black outer ring to help with that enlargement. And the lenses still look dolly too~
These lenses mostly tick all the boxes for me - the enlargement is great (though the measuring standards are confusing), the colour is pretty (though I wish it were a tad lighter on my dark eyes), and the pattern is lovely and striking (sparkly diamond eyes!).
Definitely give them a go if you want sparkly, manga-style eyes ^_^
