It's been a long time since I last reviewed lenses or even wore lenses so I was pretty excited about this pair. First new pair for 2013! Definitely a pretty pair of Big Eye Circle Lenses!!!

Shade : Brown
Diameter : 16.5mm
Base Curve : 8.6
Water Content : 38%

* Color & Design. I've gone through a lot of brown lenses and this is by far my favorite one! It even beats my trusty pair of Geo Angel Brown ones because of its unique color & design. In the vial & lens case it looks like a mix between a muted red, chestnut, brown & black. When worn it turns into a lovely hazel color against my dark brown eyes. The unique tri-color design also helps this pair blend quite nicely on my eyes without it disappearing completely. Plus this particular pair doesn't make me look "reptilian" in any way.
* Enlarging. Being 16.5mm, this particular pair doesn't look overly huge on my eyes. I have "medium" sized eyes (as friends have said) so maybe that compensates for the size of the lens. Anyway, this is my first 16.5mm diamete lens and I'm pleased at how it gives off just a "subtle" but noticeable doll-like quality to my eyes.
* Comfortable! Of all the lenses I have tried and owned, these are by far the most comfortable pair ever. I was slightly worried of its low water content but I wore this pair for up to 6 hours without feeling any dryness and that's a big deal for me since I usually get dry eyes on the 4th hour of wear. They are also thin (in a good durable way) thus it doesn't even feel like I'm wearing lenses!
*Not locally available.
All in all I had a great experience with Uniqso!
Great packaging, great communication between me and the staff, very easy to use their site, plus very gorgeous pairs of lenses in different styles & colors readily available for shipping! Now what else could I look for?
