Good morning everyone! ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
Today I'm going to review the Eyecolor 08 Brown circle lenses from Klenspop.com. They were kind enough to sponsor me 3 pair of circle lenses again!
I'm actually really happy to be able to try out their lenses and couldn't wait for the packet to arrive. As you might already know, I totally loved the last circle lenses they sent me, especially the Corona II lenses because they we're soo pretty and natural
Although this review is sponsored my opinion is as always my own and no one is forcing me here to write a good review about them lol
The packet took only 9 days to arrive with weekends (18 August- 27 August 2014)! That's super fast. Packets usually take about 2 weeks to arrive to my place. I don't even know why it's that fast. As far as I know, they used Standard Airmail to send them and not Express or something like that.
The packet arrived like on the photo above. You can see that the carton is a bit dented ㅠㅠ I was really worried that anything is damaged inside the packet but everything was okay~ They wrapped everything well in bubble wrap so everything was fine~
They sent me alot of stuff to try out and free lens cases for each circle lens pair again yay! Free eyedrops were included this time too, I totally love this but I still haven't emptied the other eye drop bottle yet
This is everything they sent me:
You can see the circle lens vial packaging of KLENSPOP above. I already posted a photo of the eyedrops with the back and front in the other reviews but just in case you haven't read them yet, I will post the same photos here again >.<
Everything written on the packaging is in Korean and there is no English translation anywhere but everything is the same as on every eyedrop packaging, just in Korean~!
As mentioned above, they also include free circle lens cases for every circle lens pair you order! This time they didn't send these travel friendly cases with animals and cute things on it but a normal circle lens case and a tweezer for each lens in a small plastic bag (you can see the little plastic bag in the packet photo above). Somehow I really love these plastic bags because idk lol I'm going to re-use it because it's one of these reclosable plastic bags o3o eheh
I put this sticker on the circle lens case to distinguish these circle lenses from my other circle lens pairs with the same case. CAN YOU GUESS WHO THIS IS? ♥ *fangirl screamo*
Let's move to the actual circle lens review:
The vials looked like this and one thing that was different than with other lenses is that the circle lens information were not printed on it!
I will explain now why this was a big problem:
These circle lenses are new lenses on klenspop.com so they didn't list them on their website yet because catalog photos weren't available and they asked me to write a review for them. But because the lens information was missing on the bottles and the manufacture doesn't have a website, the diameter or any other information about these lenses were missing.
You might ask why I was still agreeing to try out these lenses eventhough it sounds risky. It's because I trusted KLENSPOP that they won't send me dangerous lenses and because they seem to be quite professional and nice. They kept apologizing for this matter, too. That was just too nice of them to just say no >-<
I'm sorry to say that I can't tell you the real circle lens information but I will try to tell you the diameter, water content etc.. of what I think it might be. Also, you can't order these lenses yet but I will update the post as soon as they put these lenses on their website for sell~
The cap of these circle lens vials looks really plain and doesn't have these cute stickers on it like most circle lens vials have but you're going to throw it away anyways
They weren't damaged or broken when I got them. This is what they looked like in their vials !
Don't forget to check the condition of the lens before opening vials, some companies don't refund money if you have opened the vials and find out their damaged.
Above are a few photos with the lens on my finger lol >.< These lenses weren't flimsy at all and really easy to put onto your eyes
You need to let your lenses soak in multipurpose solution for at least 9 hours, I recommend to let them soak for 2-3 days because they will feel more comfortable then. If you don't let them soak your eyes will burn like hell when putting them in. So don't do it !!
Here's a photo with the circle lenses in the case Klenspop gave me:
These lenses have a thin dark brown ring and a light brown/yellowish brown around the iris which should blend in nicely into your eyecolor because of the slight gradient effect it has. The ring has these little crosses to make the dark brown ring look a bit softer and not that harsh. So far this pattern seems to be really natural and looks nice for natural everyday dolly effect!
The diameter seems to be around 14.2mm and the graphic diameter should be around 13.7mm. That's what I think it might be in comparision to other circle lenses I own and have tried so far. I'm sorry I can't do more about it ㅠㅠ
*UPDATE* You can get these lenses here for USD$13.00. The measurements I made were all right~
Photos with the Eyecolor 08 Brown~ worn.
Please note that the lens information is estimated by me and not 100% right ! I'm in no way a professional optician to measure these circle lenses and know their exact diameter in millimeters!!
Actually, this design is pretty common for circle lenses but I prefer this type of circle lenses alot more over these crazy flower or teddy bear pattern types lol. I can wear these circle lenses with natural makeup and without all of this other fancy stuff. These circle lenses do not have a hula effect!
The enlargement is really nice for natural dolly effect. It does look natural but makes you look a bit dolly, too. They do make your eyes look big but it's still not that big that people will think it's weird or unnatural. I think these circle lenses look a bit bigger in rl than on photos. Honestly, it's a tad too big for my taste to wear daily~
These lenses weren't comfortable in the long run. When I put them in my eyes they felt comfortable and my eyes got used to them and I couldn't feel them in my eyes anymore but when I put them out after taking all the photos for the review and editing them (about 3 hours later) my eyes were red around the iris and they felt kinda tired for the rest of the day! I guess it's because the diameter is bigger than the lenses I usually wear.
Recommended?: Depends! Yes, if you're looking for dolly natural lenses for 얼짱-look! No, if you're looking for daily lenses for school or work. I personally find these lenses too uncomfortable to wear longer than 4 hours but I'm not the type to wear circle lenses daily anyways so my eyes aren't trained to wear them for a long time lol. If your eyes aren't that sensible then you might be able to wear them daily too, it's just not my thing (that's what I'm trying to say).

BTW, I'm going to post a Hong Kong Haul post soon !! I forgot to take a Vlog because too much was happening in these days and I forgot to take photos everyday so the post about my trip wouldn't be that great ㅠㅠ I'm sorry

I've never tried circle lenses before, but they look pretty cute. IT's amazing how much bigger and how much rounder the lenses make your eyes look.
