Review: Dolly Eye Cat Eyes Smoky Pearl Grey (aka. Miss C Eye Grey)


Well hello there. :]  Today's lenses were kindly sponsored by EyeCandy Lens. (Thank you, muchly~!)  Anyway, these lenses are from Seeshell, and have two well-known names: the Miss C Eye Grey, and the Dolly Eye Cat Eyes Smoky Pearl Grey.  (They are under the 'Cat Eyes' name on EyeCandy Lens.)



Enlargement: 8.5/10  These are 14.5 mm, but are made to look more natural, so the enlargement isn't very extreme.


Colour/Design:  8.5/10  Hrm.... as I say in the video review, the colour is difficult to describe.  At the simplest, I would call them a medium grey.  They don't look very dark, and they don't look very light.... in most lightings.  You'll see that in some pics taken in natural/strong lighting, that the colour looks close to light-- especially if I get a little halo effect at the edge of the lens.  However, in other lightings, they look like a dark-ish grey, but are still super visible. (Maybe it's that 3rd, gold-brown tone in the center that makes them light-looking?)  The broken up, thin dark circle seem to make the lens more realistic. (As does that 3rd tone in the middle.)

(low light)




(flash)


Comfort: 9/10  I've had one lens from Seeshell in the past, and they were comfy.  These are much the same.  I have to mention, though, that the very first day I wore these, they got dry very quickly, for some reason. (Usually, my lens-accustomed eyes don't really get dry.)  I gave them a few days and a good soak, and since then they've been nothing but very comfy. <33  I don't know if it was the weather that day, or maybe my eyes acting up, but I guess that was a fluke.

 (What is that face I am making? o.o)


(See what I mean about them looking grey in any lighting?)


Alright, so overall, these lenses turned out almost exactly as I thought they would: they are neither very light nor very dark. What is a pleasant surprise is how well the colour still shows up in low lighting. I'm not sure how it works, but it's pretty cool. Haha. I've also received quite a few compliments on these, so that's another plus. C;  I wouldn't mind these being a bit lighter--what lenses wouldn't I like to be lighter, though? Still, they're somehow very appealing to me at this colour.

And here are the extra pics, as usual: One, Two, Three, Four, Five, and Six.

  1. I've never been a fan of the line type lenses, but I like the color of these. It's just as you said - the color is medium gray and it shows in all lights. I'm actually startling to dislike my DollyEye Greys because everyone tells me they're blue. ; w ; I may have to go this route and swallow my dislike of the lines.

    @ Avalon- Gracias! And yeah-- I didn't notice the Dollyeye Greys were so blue until folks online started telling me as such. o.o


    @ Naomi- Ooohh yeah. Geo has them in 15 mm, and I think G&G/Dueba has 'em in 14.5. The Milkyway design is pretty cool, definitely.


    @ Jess- Haha- thanks!


    @ Elle- Aw, merci! And pshh- makeup does wonders. Haha. I have precisely four scars on my face. (And due to a current crazy-weather-breakout, several blemishes.) If anyone has nice skin-- it's you. o: It always looks so smooth~~.


    @ q0q0- Thank you! And yeah: Seeshell has some nice series~.


    @ Coya- Yeah-- I saw the Angel Brown on you. C: Very pretty. (Those were actually my very first circle lenses~.)

  12. This series is SO attractive! I love the the design, it's really striking, but still looks somewhat natural. I'm also digging how opaque they are! I need to get myself a pair of true grey lenses... <3
