Cheap Sunglasses
Sampled

I'm a kinda a sunglasses snob. These are fine, but they're very cheap feeling. If you want a pair of sunglasses that you're ok with losing or breaking, here you go.

Convenient package, not for everyone
Sampled

I like that the shades fold up into a small package. For me they'll serve as an effective "spare pair" of sunglasses, but they're not something I would buy. They're advertised as "flattering any face" but they don't look that great on me. I appreciate their attempt to make a universal sunglass, but I believe that's a task that is not too simple.

No... just no.

I'm not sure where to even begin on this one. While I like the idea of collapsible shades, the hinges don't feel stable or sturdy at all. The dual-hinge at the nose also appears to be begging to break or warp.

The style itself is... just not good. I'm not a glasses-style hater. I can dig big frames on a girl's face if they look right, but I can't picture these looking right on anybody, male or female, small face or large. It's almost like someone decided to make some sweet chunky 80s shades, but had never actually seen 80s fashion.

Not for me.

I love the functionality of these glasses. Not sure of the style.

Perfect back-up shades
Sampled

I was very surprised to find a pair of sunglasses in my Birchbox. The case is nice, especially the magnetic latch and the sunglasses are nothing if not functional. I'm not crazy about the frames on my particular face, but I do like the look of the glasses in a more general sense. I prefer my regular sunglasses but these will more than suffice as back-ups when I forget my usuals. The arms seemed oddly short on my ear.

Fair backup pair
Sampled

Too much of a gimmick. These would be good as an extra set in a glovebox, but feels to clunky and cheap to wear daily. They look cheap.

Sample Not For Me
Sampled

Sunglasses were too small for me. I also think they look cheap. Would have been a cool product anyway if they fit since it was free but they are not for me unfortunately. The packaging was nice though I will give product a star for that.

Not my thing...

Yes, these are cool, innovative, and interesting... However, they look and feel cheap. The don't particularly look great on my face either. But my son enjoys them, so it's not all bad.

Interesting Sunglasses
Sampled

While I love these sunglasses and the way they fit on me, I truly think that they're not for everyone. The frame shape is unique...and will likely make some people's faces look odd. That is, if they fit the persons head.

Other than that, the lenses are nice, and the compact design is cool.

The plastic is a bit cheap, but c'est la vie.
