Today I'm going to review the New Bio Julia Black circle lenses from klenspop.com~♥ They recently sent me 2 pairs of circle lenses to review. I already received them in december but I was too busy over the holidays to write a review about them. I'm really sorry about that ㅠㅠ !
They immediatly shipped out the parcel and it arrived after 13 days which is pretty fast as always. As you can see above the circle lenses were packed really well in a thick layer of bubble wrap so they won't break on the way to me. I could have thrown the whole parcel on the ground and they still wouldn't break *but that doesn't mean you should throw them on the ground to see if they break* lol
I must admit that the customer service on klenspop.com is really good. They usually reply within one day and are really kind (at least to me)! They were pretty kind eventhough I took alot of time to finally post this review.
They always pack each circle lens pair in one of these little boxes. I think they changed their boxes because the last box looked kind of different from the one they sent me now. There's a little guide on how to take care of circle lenses and how to put them onto your eyes. I think this might be helpful for first time wearers.
They used to send eyedrops on every order but I guess they changed it to only a tweezer and one contact lens case per circle lens pair. That's still more than what you get on other circle lens websites! Most companies will only sent you a case and the circle lens pair you ordered.
The Julia black lenses came like any other circle lens pair in vials. This is what they kinda look like
in their vials. I also took a photo of the little information sticker on the vials. You can see it below:
I opened the bottle and let my lenses soak for 12 hours before I put them on. You need to let them soak because the solution in the bottle (Storage Solution) is harmful for your eyes. I recommend letting them soak overnight, replacing the solution the next morning and letting them soak a couple of days more. If you take your lenses out of the circle lens vial and put them directly onto your eyes they will start to burn and your eyes will get irritated. Soaking the lenses will wash away the storage solution.
But back to the lenses. I cut a few advertisement photos from the website together. This is what the New Bio Julia black lenses are suppose to look like
This is what the circle lenses looked like after I let them soak in multipurpose solution over night. I also made a close-up of the circle lens pattern

NEW BIO Julia Black~worn.
Natural Window Lighting
Sorry for the bad photo quality this time, taking photos in winter is really hard for me because lighting outside is really bad ㅠㅠ
Colour/Design:I really like the colour and the design! These circle lenses blend in nicely with my dark brown eyes. You can't see that I'm wearing circle lenses at all unless you stare directly into my eyes. Although the pattern and the colour of these circle lenses aren't really unique or anything special I still think that they deserve 5/5 for the nice graduation and for the natural look they give.
Enlargement:These circle lenses aren't super enlarging at all but I feel like they do enlarge alot for their diameter. I mean .. this is 14mm but the Julia brown lenses enlarges like 14.2mm in my opinion. I'm still not going to give them a good score on this one because it's still small enlargement~
Comfort:These circle lenses are really comfortable. I wore them for 12 hours without eyedrops (do not recommend this). and I didn't feel any dramatic discomfort. The only concern I have with these lenses is that they sometimes shift around in your eyes. Oh and these circle lenses do have a slight hula effect, the advertisement is a little misleading. I only experienced hula effect and shifting of the lens on my right eye though. I'm not sure if it's just me.
Recommended?: Sure, I highly recommend them when you're looking for rather small enlargement and natural look for work or school. I do not recommend them for dolly/gyaru look at all simply because the enlargement might be too small for most people.
Personally I would not repurchase them because I don't like black circle lenses that much, I prefer brown lenses over every other circle lens colour on this market. I feel like black lenses can make you look really creepy and alienish. This is not the case with these lenses though they're OK in my opinion its just I don't like black lenses omg lol. IF you like black lenses though and want something that looks natural and isn't as big as other black circle lenses go for these they're also only USD$10~!
Here's a photo of me wearing the Julia Black lenses.
Sorry for this ugly flower but my hair and face look so ugly on that day..OTL

i think you still look great without makeup though! the lenses look very pretty, but if only the enlargement was greater, then it would be even better~

@Rini Cesillia: I was really surprised when I saw them too haha. I'm actually really happy that they're a little sheer because it doesn't look that creepy like most black lenses imo o_o And I must admit that my eyes are quite big already in real life ^^;;;; I wish I had a little smaller eyes tbh ㅠㅠ
