Review: Super Pinky Bright Red



Boom.  Here is my first (posted) lens review in about 3 years. (Yikes).  Let's hope I don't muck this up too badly. Or, like, sprain something.  (Have to stretch those lens reviewing muscles, y'know.  Don't want to tear a lens reviewing ligament. Keep those reviewing reflexes sharp.)

You are beginning to see the (terrible) theme in my "jokes", yes? Indeed.  TIME FOR THE REVIEW! :D

Alright, so I bought these pretty little lenses from Pinky Paradise, and quite a while ago at that.

Colour/Design:  4/5   I mean, I've said all there is to say about the design in my review of the Super Pinky Violet, previously.  The biggest things to note are that the colour is very opaque and covers a lot of the lens surface. Also, the 'circle' on these lenses (around the edge) is very, very subtle.  In fact, it's not even black: it is a darker red-brown colour that sort of blends naturally with the lens colour.

Speaking of the colour, these are one of two red lenses in this series (the other is 'Wine Red').  For being named 'Bright Red', I am not sure they quite live up to that name.  I mean, I like the colour, and it is very saturated and fairly vibrant.  However, these are by no means the brightest or lightest red lenses I have worn (and I have tried many).  They are very noticeable, though, and very pretty in hue (sometimes a little bit pinkish-orangeish in tint). Very lovely, all the same.

Enlargement:  4/5   Alright, so there are conflicting notes on the diameter of these lenses.  Classically, these are said to be 14.8mm.  More recently, some shops list them as being 15.0 mm.  Either way, for such large lenses, I don't find these to be quite as enlarging as I might expect. (Likely because the pattern is mostly lens colour and very little is dedicated to the dark circle around that.)  They are pretty big, all the same.





Comfort:  4.5/5  This series has been consistently, supremely comfortable for me. ❤  Pretty impressive considering how opaque the pigment is, and how much lens is pigmented.  (They are supposedly produced by Vassen, which would make sense since my eyes love their lenses. Haha.)

eye bags & blemishes definitely do not help...) ^

In conclusion, I rather like these lenses (and this series, generally speaking).  They are pretty damn comfortable and provide quite a lot of colour.  I wish that colour was brighter, but the 'natural' kind of design is a good balance for that.  [These are especially fun to mix and match with the purple version (red lens on one eye and purple lens on the other).]

Don't Call It a Comeback (...It's Closer to Necromany)

Hey hey hey,

How goes it, lovely folks!? Going to try and keep this short and sweet, as I am super busy trying to edit at least four more posts and reviews and such.

Basically, I am back!  (I hope! Haha.)  Real life (specifically a very stressful job that I just got out of) completely took over every facet of my existence.  For, like, nearly 3 years. Yikes...


(Boring all-text post. Ewww~.
Pic nabbed from my own Instagram. #lazy)


Anyhoot, the blog layout's been updated a bit, I got myself a new camera, a microphone, and all sorts of other fun stuff to improve the quality of my videos and pictures. (Bigger and better, right?)

I also Made a Concerted Effort and now have joined all you hip young people on Social Media.  Altogether, there's my Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and FaceBook.  (Oh, and my blog, of course, but... you're on it, so you don't need a link. Right??)

Okay, so I'm rambling. I'll stop, soon. Promise.  (As always, feel free to skip straight to the video down below, where virtually no reading is required!)

So, yeah. Glad to be back!  To all you lovely new subscribers/followers: hey! Thanks for following along and sorry for the funky hiatus.  I should have a bit of a 'Thank You So Much & I Am So Sorry For Being Gone' Giveaway coming soon for all you lovely folks out there. ♥

See you (very) soon with a lens review. ;p
