Hello everyone! It's been sooo long since I've written a review and I apologize for that! Sometimes life just gets really crazy and I end up neglecting my blog ;; but~ I will try to be more active in the future! Today, I am going to be reviewing a pair of sponsored circle lenses and a wig from Uniqso. I know a lot of you were curious about the quality of their wigs, so I'm going to do this for you! ♥
The shipping took approximately 2-4 weeks to ship from Germany to the U.S.A. That is pretty average for international shipping times. It came in a plastic mailer like this and everything was wrapped safely in bubble wrap so, nothing was harmed or damaged during shipping. Please note that if you order a wig and circle lenses in the same order, they will be shipped seperately!
My lenses came in this really cute and colorful box which, I thought was a nice touch. Who doesn't love cute packaging, right? AS I mentioned before, everything was safely packaged so, although the lenses come in glass bottled they did not break during shipping, so yay!
Good news! You can order circle lenses in prescription! I have really bad vision so, prescription circle leneses give me an oppertunity to wear super cute colored contacts. Please note that circle lenses are different than regular contact lenses and require specific care and wearing instructions.
Next, I'm going to try my best to instruct how to open the bottles (through pictures!) because it can be a bit tricky. Basically, there is an arrow on the side of the bottle right below the cap. What you need to do is push the cap up where the arrow is.
Once you do that, your bottle should look like the photo above.
Next, you're going to twist the cap in a circular motion to twist the medal part off. Once you do that, you will be left with the rubber bit on the top and you can just take that right off.
And you're done! I'm sorry if I couldn't explain well, there are tons of tutorials on how to open these tricky bottles on YouTube as well~
The lenses that I am going to review for you all today are Dolly Eye Starry Grey. I picked these lenses because I was looking for a really nice pair of grey lenses that look more natural. These lenses are pretty small. They're only 14.8mm which, is about the size of my normal eyes. These lenses aren't ideal for enlarging your eyes for a doll effect. But, they're great if you want natural looking grey lenses.
Circle lenses must be soaked in all purpose contact lens solution for at least 8 hours before wearing. Circle lenses are not meant for everyday use. Always handle your circle lenses with clean hands and always clean the lenses with contact lens solution after wearing. Your eyes are precious, please take good care of them!
The Dolly Eye Starry Eye Grey circle lenses are so beautiful and I am very pleased with them, physically. They're two-toned so, they blend in really well with my brown eyes whih I love. However, unfortunately they are not very comfortable for me. While wearing them, my eyes get a bit irritated here and there which is a bit uncomfortable. I think it has to do with the size of the lenses because I usually wear larger ones and I find they don't move around as much.
These lenses should last 12 months unless worn often then it is recommended to toss them after 3-4 months.
Now onto the wig! I got a lot of questions on my tumblr asking if I had ever bought a wig from Uniqso and I hadn't bought one before. But, I was also curious about the quality of their wigs since they have a wide selection of styles for reasonable prices.
The wig that I chose to review for you guys was the Uta No Prince Sama - Ringo Tsukimiya Cosplay Wig. I picked this wig because I loved the beautiful colors and style.
This wig is a bright pink color with a darker shade of pink mixed in. It's layered so, it's light pink on the top and dark pink on the bottom. The colors are very bright and vibrant which is what I love. I also really like the waves/curls in the wig~
The netting on the inside of the wig is good quality. I have no complaints with the inside of the wig.
However, on the top/front of the wig a lot of the lace was showing. It doesn't look that great, at all. I wasn't sure if it was meant to be that way or if it was a manufactioring error. So, I contacted customer service, told them my issue with the wig, and they happily sent me another one. However, the new wig they sent was more or less the same. I then decided to cut the fringe of the wig and make blunt bangs. That way I wouldn't let the wig go to waste and I could still wear it. Once I cut the bangs, the wig looked sooo much better and I was very pleased with it!
The inside has hooks so that you can adjust the wig to fir your head. Simply put the hooks in the loops to make it tighter/loose.
I cut the fringe of the wig myself (first time ever) and I was sooo pleased with the results! The wig looks absolutely beautiful now and I amvery very happy with it! Once I cut the bangs, I have no complaints. If you are intersted in this wig, I'd advise you to cut the fringe as well.
I love love love this wig so much. It's very beautiful and although I had some issues with the front of the wig, it was an easy fix and I'm satisfied with it now. I'm also greatful for their really nice and professional customer service, I would recommend this wig if you are willing to cut the fringe/style it yourself. Otherwise, the wig isn't going to look as good, in my opinion. I honestly love the blunt bangs on this wig!
