Dueba Messish MX21 aqua circle lens review

Just a quick lens review post before I go on with the clubbing posts.

On Saturday night I wore the Dueba Messish MX21 lens in aqua, from Pinky Paradise.

Base Curve : 8.6mm
Diameter : 14.0mm

Water Content : 38%
Brand: Dueba

Colour: 7 out of 10
Comfort: 8 or 9 out of 10 (equal to the G&G; BT lenses)
Enlargement: 9 out of 10

I whacked these babies in straight form the vial just before heading out, so I was a little concerned my eyes would be upset – but I wore them for HOURS!!

Although only 14.0, not 14.2 or 14.5 like many others, they gave a really enlarging, weird-dolly effect.

Colour-wise, sadly the blue wasn’t very bright, but the black ring and striations round the edge gave me a dark spooky look I kinda liked. Perfect for punk gigs and deathrock clubs, which I was wearing them to.

Some pics in natural daylight, without flash:

and now one with flash – the blue is a bit more aqua
Even from afar, they looked a bit weird because of the darkness and enlargement, and I liked that. To me, I looked a little like Willow in Buffy when she went evil (I really should try some pure black ones) . I enhanced the weirdness a little with false eyelashes (IPD brand) from i-socks, 4th floor Berjaya Times Square in Malaysia. I placed them a little outside my normal lash line (under eye area only) to make my eyes look even bigger.  My pinky-mauve lipstick is Airborne Unicorn, by Lime Crime.

All in all, I really liked them, despite the lack of real aqua-ness The comfort and enlargement were their best features, and I’ll certainly be wearing them many times more.

  1. They seem to blend in nicely and do create an air of mystery, very nice.
