i take horrible selfies but at least i hope we can see the lenses properly!
right now, i have 4 pairs of lenses in total, 3 of them are brown, the other one is gray.
i feel like all the other colors look weird on me, so i'm more into having different shades of brown.
these photos were taken in daylight and of course i'm way far from looking that white, i only got plenty of lighting on my face so we could see the lenses haha.
i know it's bad but i'm used to keep my lenses on for a very long time every day, much longer than advised. because i usually sleep late, i keep my lenses for a longer time, and these ones were very comfortable to wear.
the diameter is supposed to be 14.8mm, but actually, they're HUGE! a lot bigger than what i expected, especially for brown lenses. lately, most of the new circle lenses have a diameter of 15mm so i thought these ones wouldn't look too big, but i kinda felt like i was wearing black ones. i think they give the biggest enlargement effect from all the lenses i've owned until now.
they blend perfectly well as they are dark brown just like my natural color. you will really notice them only if you look really closely: they are slightly lighter.
overall i'd say i'm pretty satisfied with these lenses, the only thing is i'm still not very used to the enlargement.
i'm getting this huge luck of trying monthly a pair of glasses from Polette (french people can actually order on L'usine à lunettes) and i will take the time to write a small review each time.
first, a few words on Polette, it's basically an online eyeglass store and it offers massive choices. there are so many different cool designs, it took me years to choose a pair! from trendy to classic to vintage, you can really find any style. they also have sunglasses!
also, their prices are just super affordable considering the fact that you can get prescriptions for your lenses, starting from $6,99, you literally just want to buy everything. (they even say that if you find cheaper, the boss is willing to take off his pants haha!)
so here is my first pair (called Nelly, i think they're only available in black atm), as some of you already know i am nearsighted and you can pretty much tell i am not wearing my usual circle lenses, i look so different haha!
i haven't changed glasses for years and the old ones i had were so old-fashioned that i would only wear them at home.
these one have that cute and vintage vibe and i just love them. round glasses are quite popular lately i think, but it's probably what suits my face the best though. i got the lenses slightly thinner because of my prescription, and also they are anti-reflective, so what can i add, i don't ask for much more, that's just exactly what i need hehe.
there are so many other frames that i want to try, so you can expect some other reviews from me in the future!
