Berry Lens: Dolly Red Review

So I received a new pair of lenses yesterday! :D

I had ordered a pair of lens from Berry's Collection. Do check their store out, it has a variety of lenses perfect for cosplay and everyday purposes :)

Don't be fooled. The label says Tiffany but it's actually from Berry.

 It's kinda like Nudy Red. Faded red and a nice black rim for that dolly eyes look. They look really subtle, and you really won't notice them until you're up close or you're looking for them XD

Lens Specifications:
Base curve: 8.6
Diameter: 16mm
Life Span: 1 year
Shelf life: 3 years

It's my first time wearing dolly lenses. They feel very comfortable, despite the diameter. Plus, it really makes my eyes look slightly larger than before.

Bleeeh XD No make up, just the lens.

As you can see, it shows up well in photos.

What I like about these pair is that they're a subtle red, not too flashy but still noticeable. They don't look demonic or anything, which was really great because I was looking for red lenses that aren't too showy but still visible.

What I don't like is the size??? Because I have small eyes, it's such a challenge for me to put them on. Unlike most lens, dolly lens tend to be bigger. But I guess it takes time and practice, so if you're used to dolly lens, this pair shouldn't be much of a challenge for you. Another thing is, when you take photos of it up close (while you're wearing it) it tends to be too glossy (because of the dark color). If you shoot it up close, you can see the foreground kinda reflected on it too much, so the red color is barely seen. I guess this problem can be solved with lighting.

See? It reflects light too much up close.

Comfort: 5/5 - Very comfortable for 16mm lens. I feel nothing at all (except when my eyelash snagged on to the lens -_- Ugh.)
Design: 4/5 - It's less brighter than what I expected but very good for dolly lenses :)
Enlargement: 4/5 - Did better than my Spice Honey lens. I guess the enlargement would go full power if I put on makeup ^_^
That's all! :D Thanks for reading~
