ScleraXL : Phantasee Colossus (Rinnegan) 22mm Sclera Lenses Review

Hello everyone!! Today, I am super honored and hyped about reviewing these gorgeous sclera lenses sponsored by  ScleraXL. Not only did my wish of trying sclera lenses get granted but my DREAM of owning the RINNEGAN also came true. (❁´▽`❁)*✲゚* These sclera lenses are called Colossus and you can get it from their site.

( Also, Please Buy Me Coffee if you want ❤ )

 For those of you who are new to them, ScleraXL is a company based in the Netherlands that SPECIALIZES in SCLERA LENSES. Sclera lenses are different from your regular lenses. They are extremely large lenses that cover the entire white part of your eyes.These lenses could cause discomfort or irritation to inexperienced users. Other companies who sell scleras on the sidelines probably can't answer all of your questions regarding them. That is why, I recommend getting your pair from ScleraXL because they are professionals and they could answer all of your questions!

 Here are it's details:

ScleraXL was VERY QUICK with their replies. I really didn't have to wait long to receive a reply from them and sometimes, they reply to my inquiries just minutes after I messaged them. Other companies take hours or even days to reply so if you're the type to ask a lot of questions about your order, then this company is for you!

ScleraXL ships your order on the same day of your payment as long as you ordered before 7 PM CET (1 PM EST). My order came inside a thin box with labels saying fragile. Their shipping is free and they take approximately the days listed below to arrive to their respective countries: 

US & Canada = 6-9 business days
Western Europe = 2-3 business days
UK = 2-4 business days
Southern Europe & Scandinavia = 3-5 business days
Brazil = 3-6 weeks
Worldwide = 6-10 days

Inside the box, you can see that layers of bubble wrap were placed inside it. The lenses were put in a small vertical box that could fit 1 pair of lens vials. The free lens case was enclosed in plastic and is bigger than most lens cases. This is because it is designed to fit sclera lenses that are 6-8 mm bigger than most contact lenses. 

The sclera lenses came in the usual vial that most contact lenses come with. It contains all information of the lenses as well as its expiry date if you aren't planing on opening it for a while. The vial is exactly the same height and width with other lenses' vials but you can see that the sclera lenses were a bit cramped inside due to its enormous size.

This is how the lenses look outside of the vial. The left is how the back part (the one that shows) look like and the right is how it looks from inside or when inverted. The lenses are thicker, harder and form a much bigger curve than most lenses. Since it prevents adequate oxygen from entering your eyes, it is suggested that you should only wear sclera lenses for 4-6 hours. 

Aren't these lenses perfect for Rinnegan holders?

( 22mm Sclera Lenses vs 17mm mini scleras , 15mm dolly lenses & 14mm normal lenses )

As I said, these lenses are much more bigger than any other contact lenses. You can see the difference between other sizes of contact lenses in the picture above. 

In the picture above, we can see how much bigger the curve sclera lenses form compared to normal lenses. Almost half of the entire lenses is actually pushed to the inner corners of your eyes.


Color and Design: (8/5) ★+
As a huuge fan of Naruto, I idolized (and had a crush on) Nagato and his Deva Path of Pain. I was obsessed with the Rinnegan and wanted to have one someday. These lenses are like a dream come true! The size ,coverage and rings are perfect eventhough the color is a bit darker than the Rinnegan (blame the manufacturers for that!)

Enlargement: (5/5)  
These lenses almost occupy the entire sclera or white part of your eyes and make them look filled and enlarged. Let's just say they're about 2 cm away on both sides from filling the entire eye BUT WE WOULDN'T WANT THAT! The lenses are hard enough to insert and took me a good few minutes of trying and failing! Sometimes, my eyes end up being red since I take TOO LONG to insert them because I'm inexperienced. 

Visibility of Effect: (5/5) 
The lenses were very clear and visible both up close and from afar. The rings are very visible and the coverage is just enough to make it seem like your entire eyes were purple.   

Comfort: (3/5) 

I was honestly expecting to be in so much pain that I would cry for long minutes BUT it actually didn't feel that bad. I mean, it is uncomfortable and it stings a lot but it was just at the same level of pain as with other lenses. It's a bit harder to open your eyes wider with these lenses. My eyes also sometimes feel dry and then I'll just drop a few solution on the sides and let the solution seep in. 

Anyway as Nagato said, KNOW PAIN!

Overall: (5/5) 
The initial pain from inserting it is inevitable and it would take some time to get used to wearing sclera lenses.However, once you get the hang of it, the pain will dull out and then subside. You'd even feel as if you've just achieved something amazing by enduring the pain. And when you remove it, your eyes will feel strange from being "empty" again but there is still the feeling of relief.
