Rated 4 out of 5 by from large but not too much Super cute! I usually only wear square style glasses because of all the other ones sit on my cheeks and mess up my make up. These are large but do not touch my face so I can actually wear them. I would recommend to anyone they look a lot more expensive then they are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cat eye shape These almost have a very slight cat eye shape which is the reason I bought them! I prefer a very feminine frame and this did it for me!
