Long Long Tail Circle Lens Review

Hello everybody! Welcome back to another blog post.

Today I’ll be reviewing the following lenses from Long Long Tail:

Note: I won Madonna Violet in their Valentines giveaway and Dali Extra Gray & Black Cat were kindly sponsored by them! However, everything in this review is honest and not sugar-coated!

Madonna Violet

The contest was held on the 14th of February and they contacted me through e-mail on the 16th telling me I was one of the winners. I was given a few points to make the purchase, but I had trouble with selecting my shipping option. I was supposed to select K-Packet, but it would only let me select Express shipping. I contacted LLT and adressed the issue and the problem was resolved after that. I placed my order on the same day.

Ordered: 16th of February 2017

Shipped out: 19th of February 2017

Delivered: 24th of February 2017

My opinion

✨Comfort✨ 10/10
I didn’t feel anything sting when putting these lenses in and they haven’t bothered me at all while wearing them. These lenses feel thinner than other circle/colored lenses I have worn before, which is a plus point for me, but if you have never worn lenses before putting them in might be a little bit more difficult. I don’t have anything to complain about.
⠀⠀
✨Colour✨ 8/10
I love the look the voilet/purple color adds to my eyes. The lenses cover my natural eye color (green) perfectly! They are not very enlarging, but they are colored contacts and not circle lenses, so enlargment isn’t their purpose.

My opinion on Dali Extra Gray

✨Comfort✨ 10/10
The same goes for these lenses! They are also really comfortable and I accidently fell asleep while wearing them, but I didn’t feel anything sting when I woke up. Lovely! But please be careful yourself though, because lenses aren’t supposed to be worn while being asleep! This can damage your eyes, because not enough oxygen can be let through.
⠀⠀
✨Colour✨ 7/10
I always have wanted gray lenses and lenses with a brown rim, so I was pretty excited to try these out! The gray shows up really minimal on my green eyes, but it makes a lovely mixture of both colors. You only really notice the gray when you stand close to the mirror. The brown rim makes it look more natural, which is amazing for daily life use! I did have the idea though that the brown rims weren’t entirely symmetrical. This was a downside for me. Overall I am happy with these and I will definitely make a lot of cool looks with them ♥

My opinion on Black Cat

✨Comfort✨ 10/10

They are very comfortable and I didn’t feel anything sting while putting them in. The same comfort level as the two previous lenses!

⠀⠀
✨Colour✨ 5/10

I have light eyes (green) and the black didn’t show up that well on my eyes! A disappointment for me, but I am sure they will show up way better on someone with darker eyes. Black Cat made it look like I had a thicker rim then usual, which was really pretty, but sadly not the effect I was aiming for!

Overall experience

Working with Long Long Tail was very pleasant and I wish them all the best with their lovely company. The customer service is great; they respond very quickly and their English is good. I will definitely make a purchase of my own in the future and if LLT wants to work with me again I won’t turn it down! The only thing that bothered me was the lack of different lens sizes, as far as I know they only sell lenses with a diameter of 14.0 and 14.2mm. I usually wear lenses with a diameter between 14.5 and 15.0mm to mimic that ‘dolly‘ effect. I would give the shop a 10/10 if they expanded their diameter range. Thank you for reading and have a nice day ♡
