{Review} G&G (Dueba/Barbie) Big DM23 Brown Circle Lenses from Pinky Paradise!

Received my first pair of circle lenses last month from Pinky Paradise! I was looking for brown lenses with a noticeable enlargement effect, so I picked the G&G (Dueba/Barbie) Big DM23 lenses in brown. Continue reading for a special discount code!

Circle lens review for the g&g big dm23 brown lenses from pinky paradise

Lens Info:

The package came in an envelope with bubble wrap and pink foam wrapped around it.

Inside the envelope were:

Free set of two velcro hair cloths included with circle lens package
The package came with a free set of DARIYA velcro hair cloths, used to hold your fringe in place.
After opening the vials (which took nearly an hour because I'm terrible at opening things), I soaked the lenses in multipurpose contact lens solution for 8 hours. Here are the lenses and the lens case:

Comfort: 4/5

 As a first time circle lens wearer, these took some time to get used to. During the first 5-10 minutes, the lenses made my eyes a bit teary, but after that I couldn't feel them there. They do tend to dry out your eyes after a few hours, so I'd recommend having eye drops ready.

Enlargement: 5/5

I was really surprised at how large these made my eyes look. If enlargement is what you're going for, the Big DM23 lenses are a great choice! Even though they're only 14.5mm, the limbal ring (black circle on the edges) really helps to enlarge the eyes. Anyone aiming for the ulzzang/gyaru/dolly look should definitely give these lenses a try.

Color: 3/5

The color is very natural on dark brown eyes. It blends well but doesn't make a very noticeable change. You can see the bright brown pattern on the lenses in direct sunlight, but in plain lighting it's rather dark.

Overall: 4/5

The G&G Big DM23 lenses are really beautiful, have great enlargement, and really help achieve a dolly-eyed look! I love these lenses, but they're slightly too dramatic for everyday wear. I'd recommend wearing these with heavier makeup to balance out the enlargement and prevent the eyes from looking unnatural. I would definitely say that these are a great buy.

Check out the G&G Big DM23 circle lenses and many, many more at Pinky Paradise! Whether you want doll-like/gyaru/ulzzang lenses, cosplay/costume lenses, different colored lenses, or simple, natural-looking lenses, they have an endless variety to choose from, and each pair of lenses comes with a FREE animal or macaron lens case plus a set of velcro hair cloths!
