SubApollo Summer 2018 Review
SubApollo offers three options via drop-down menus on the order page. You’ll choose a gender (male, female, or “prefer not to say”), a face shape (narrow, medium, or wide), and your style (open-minded, adventurous, fashion-forward, or simplistic) which will help guide them to what styles they choose for you.
The box came with a sticker for the brand.
Tortoiseshell Cat Eye Sunglasses
The first pair I got was this set of retro tortoiseshell sunnies. I love the warm, tan hues in the tortoiseshell and the whiskey-hued tint that the lenses have. I feel like the two lenses were a little close together for my face shape—I might’ve been happier with a slightly wider nose bridge. But cat eye sunnies are my favorite shape, and I love the versatility of this neutral-toned pair.
Round Tortoiseshell Sunglasses
I love this second pair! I don’t typically reach for this rounder shape, but I find it super flattering. I think they suit my face shape better than I expected. And the big size is right up my alley. Again, the amber-brown tone is really versatile, so I can see wearing these with a ton of different outfits, whether to work or on the weekends.
Verdict: SubApollo really impressed me with the affordability, especially in given the glasses I got. The box is only $15.00, meaning each pair costs less than $10.00. I have a local shop that carries similar “trendy” sunglasses of a slightly lesser quality (the SubApollo styles remind me of what more affordable department store sunglasses might be—they’re not quite designer level, but they strike me as much sturdier than what I’d find at a mall accessories store), and they cost around $10.00+ per pair. Sunglasses are my favorite accessory, so having this subscription to support my habit without costing me an arm and a leg is pretty awesome!
