Lens Village Contact Lenses Review

Hi everyone! I have a bit of a different review for you all today. A couple of months ago, I was contacted by Lens Village, and they asked me if I was interested in trying out a couple of pairs of lenses. I went ahead and said yes, because what other way can you drastically transform your look without any commitment? Contact lenses are super fun and affordable!
I had a really hard time choosing which lenses I wanted to try, because there are so many to choose from! Like, hundreds! I obviously wanted something totally different from my natural eyes, so I chose the G-307 Gothic 3 Tone Turquoise Lenses, -0.00 (Plano) and the Geo Tri Color Violet Lens CM-905 (Berry Berry Chessy), -0.00 (Plano). Both of my pairs do not have a prescription, but they do offer prescription lenses, too! All you need to do is enter your prescription number when ordering your lenses.

About Lens Village: First off, they have excellent customer service and great communication! That's always a huge plus for me. Based in Korea, Lens Village offers 100% authentic brands, and loads of different colors and styles to choose from. They offer a plentiful stock on most of their lenses as well. They ship internationally, and offer free standard shipping on orders over $50 USD. 

Oh, and you also get these super adorable animal cases that are included with every pair purchase. Please be aware that this excludes promotional items. If you purchase a promotional item, you will not receive the cute case(s)!

The lenses come in glass vials that are sealed tight with foil wrapping.
Be very careful while opening; the edges are pretty sharp!
The model number and prescription numbers are printed on the lids.
The lenses swim in a saline solution.
Seal of authenticity! 
Always remember to make sure your hands are clean before applying lenses!
These violet lenses are so pretty! I love that they're a color that isn't considered very natural, but for some reason, these are very wearable even though they're purple. The tri-color also helps with the wearability. It gives the contacts some much needed dimension. The warm honey shade in the center helps with the transition into your natural irises. There is plenty of room for the pupils for when they dilate, and these are about the same size as my natural irises. The pixels are printed a little larger than I'm used to, but it isn't as noticeable in person and from afar. My eyes tend to get dry when I wear contact lenses, but I had no problem with these. Since I have worn contact lenses in the past many times, I have experience with them and my eyes are sort of used to having lenses on. For someone who's never worn lenses before, it might take you a while to get the hang of it and be able to wear them comfortably  I wore them for hours before having to hydrate them with contact-lens safe eye drops. I almost forgot I had them on! Available for $19.50 USD, HERE.

 
How gorgeous are these babies?! I instantly fell in love when I saw these in the vials, and I swooned when I put them on. As you can see, these make my eyes look HUGE! They are considerably larger than my natural irises, resulting in a doll-eyed effect. I wore these out shopping the other day, and I got loads of compliments. Usually people are nervous about getting light-colored lenses if their eyes are naturally dark, but these were pretty opaque and covered my naturally warm irises up very well. Like the violet lenses, they have a honey colored center that helps transition into your natural eye color, and plenty of room for your pupils. But unlike the violet lenses, these weren't as comfortable. They are by no means unbearable, but I believe it's because of the larger lens size. A few drops of hydrating eye drops, and I was good to go. Available for $22.50 USD, HERE.

If you are interested in purchasing a pair, enter the code 10BNC at checkout for 10% off your order! WEE!

Overall, I am very impressed with the quality of the lenses. I have used many different brands and styles in the past, and these are among some of the better ones I have used. The prices are reasonable as well. I have paid almost $50 a pair in the past, and they weren't as pretty as these. If you have sensitive eyes, I don't recommend contact lenses. But if you want to change up your look and style, are comfortable wearing lenses, and you don't mind touching your eyeballs, then you should totally check them out over at LensVillage.com!

Oh, and just for fun, here are some oh, so lovely (yeah, right) photos of me from high school wearing colored lenses. I loved wearing them, and I thought I was a bad ass (ppffftt)!
These are from ten years ago. TEN. I feel so old. ;__;

I hope this review was helpful to you, and I hope that I didn't scar you with my teenage photos, haha. If you do decide to try them out, let me know what you got...I want to make a purchase soon and try out something crazy :)

Take care, and I'll see you next time!

  1. They look AWESOME. I had a customer in work the other day tell me I should get green contacts (to match the chunk of La Riche Directions Alpine in my hair) and I have to say that the two of you have me tempted ... ^__^ Your eyes are gorgeous naturally, but these are just so fun!

  9. I love the lenses! But I have to make a note about something... every blogger I have ever seen who was sent products by them mentions the little animal cases under the impression that Lens Village sends them out with every order for free.

    However, in my experience, plain cases were sent to me with every order I've ever placed (though they do offer the animal cases as a purchasable product). While it doesn't really bother me because the contacts themselves are the most important aspect (and no-one else sees the mountain of product and product cases sitting in my vanity :P) I think people should be aware that they *dont* send out those cases to everyone and it's pretty hit or miss. You may or may not receive their cute little faces!

  10. Hi Christina! Really? That sucks! I wrote that in my review because on their website, they state that they are included with every order..I'll make sure to add a little disclaimer in my post though, thanks :)

  11. Hi Christina, I am Jessica, the marketing manager of LensVillage. We do give out free animal casing for every purchase on non-promotional items only and we had stated disclaimer on the Free Animal Casing Banner and Sales Item page actually. Some of the customers may not notice it so they received a normal color casing on their promotion items purchase.
