Hey everyone! I'm back with another lens review. I mentioned this before, but when I did the shoot for these lenses, I shot a total of five pairs of lenses, including this one. You might notice that my hairstyle + clothes will be exactly the same for the next two lens reviews, haha! ;; Today's lenses are Dueba Crystal.i Grey, sent to me by LensVillage.

COLOR / DESIGN
The design is just as the name says-- it really does look like a crystal, especially up close. I prefer this type of crystal design over other more obvious ones (like GEO's Diamond series * A *). The grey does have a bit of a bluish hue, but not so much that it looks more blue than grey. The limbal ring is the thin type, and is in grey as well. It's visible, but it's not as obvious as black limbal rings. The only problem I have with these lenses is that the middle doesn't blend into my eyes as nicely and naturally as, say, the Vassen Lucky Clover Cocoro Grey.

ENLARGEMENT
Supposedly 14.2mm, but these seem more enlarging than my 14.5mm lenses. So strange! I like it though.

COMFORT
No problems here -- I was a bit hesitant to try wearing them for more than 5 hours (since the design is very visible, I was scared that there may be problems with comfort), but my eyes didn't hurt or anything when I did.

OVERALL
If you're going for a natural yet striking look, then these are great. Since the crystal design is quite subtle, these lenses are okay to wear for everyday. But since the design is very pretty, and even prettier up close, they're sure to catch people's eyes and become a topic of conversation, heheh~ * 3 *
