Review: (Dueba) OT Star/Otoo Eye/Starlight/Cara Violet (aka. Pink)


Wow. I have had a derp-tastic couple of weeks. You may notice I've switched up the promised review. Yeah. The Komi Look Green review is temporarily incomplete... Because of reasons. :/  (Mostly me being an absent-minded dunce, as usual.)

Anyway, this review is for another pair of lenses sponsored by Kitty Eye Contacts~! (See my store review for them here.)

(That's right: I do go outdoors~. o: )


Enlargement: 8.5/10  As with most of the new lenses from Dueba (and G&G and Vassen), these clock in around 14.5~15.0. They do enlarge rather well~.



Colour/Design: 8/10  All in all, I have very mixed feelings about these lenses.  The design/pattern for this series is amazing-- not only are these 5-tone lenses, but the colours are super-unique.  That is, as you have noticed, the Violet of this series has yellow sections. (Every colour in this series does, too.) <3 And the design looks like some sort of abstractly painted flower. Haha.

The colour itself is odd, in that I think it is generally a fairly subtle violet (noticeable, but not super vibrant). It can look greyish in some lighting, but I would not quite call it 'dark'. Often, though, it appears lighter in pictures/on video. Weird... Oh! And I get a bit of a halo effect, sometimes, that makes the yellow sections really pop.




(flash)


Comfort: 9/10 G&G/Dueba lenses are pretty comfy for me, usually. :]


So yeah. Mixed feelings.. I really like this series' design, but I cannot help but to want a more intense/light violet. (I know, I know-- I always say this. It's because I typically want my lenses as 'dramatic' as possible. The lightest and brightest colours receive my eternal love.)  I haven't decided if I'll be wearing these often or not.  It depends whether I like the design more, or if I dislike the colour more...


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

  4. Wow Such amazing Colour! They really remind me of fairy eyes. So abstract and different! They look like they could be worn everyday on you and still look quite normalish.

    1. Yeah-- I've worn these out, and they don't attract attention until seen up close. o:

      Fairy eyes, indeed. That's an awesome way to describe these~.

    2. Yea I also like that the rim isn't a huge black line.

      I love lenses that are so different. I can't decide if I like the colour or not! haha.
