!! H A P P Y . F O R T H . O F . J U L Y !!
It’s Anime Expo 2014 weekend. As you are reading this post, I’m most likely at the convention or partying it up for Independence Day!
Today I have a special 4th of July themed circle lens review for you.
Klenspop also sent me another circle lens product for review, but I won’t be posting that for another couple of weeks. Here are all of the goodies that I got from them.
This lens case is something new that I don’t typically get, so I was pretty excited when I saw it. I just love that it has such a huge mirror inside, and I feel that the overall quality of this case is on par.
I will most definitely be carrying this with me in my purse everywhere I go! I find it useful to carry a lens case (pre-filled with solution) and glasses with me when I go out incase I end up staying out late or sleep over at a friends place. I’m spontaneous so it’s always useful to be prepared! You don’t want to damage or dry out your eyes from long hours of wear.
Now onto the review for Lulu Pink!
You can buy these lens from Klenspop for $16 and it includes a bonus case!
My Lulu Pink lens came stacked in this green box. I think this is new product packaging on Klenspop’s end, which really shows that they are upping their game in the circle lens industry and taking their customer satisfaction seriously. That’s always a good sign.
- Brand: Polytouch
- Diameter: 14.2mm
- Graphic Diameter: 13.8mm
- Water Content: 38%
- Base Curve: 8.6mm
- Life Span: 1 year (Max) **
- Country of Origin: South Korea
** Though the life span states that you can wear the lens for up to 1 year. I recommend only keeping lenses for 3-4 months instead.
Originally when I first chose these lens, I picked them because of the interesting flame-like wispy design, and also because the last pink circle lens that I owned was over 2 years ago (lately I’ve been really into natural browns).
Taking a closer look at the lens, you’ll notice that there isn’t really a black rim on this design, it’s more of a dark reddish brown color. Moreover, the rim is pretty thin in comparison to other lens. The pink pigmentation in this lens is very light and seems to be more overwhelmed by the browns.
Here’s a visual comparison for you regarding enlargement. I find that 14.2mm usually gives me my ideal iris enlargement. When I wear 15mm, I tend to look like a bug or alien if I wear them with simple makeup. But 14.2mm is good for almost all scenarios, such as a casual work day or when you are getting dolled up.
For those who are curious about how these lens look under various lighting, here you go!
Is it just me or have circle lens really improved their overall design when it comes to blending with the natural eye color? Lately I feel that my different lighting photography is useless because it always looks good in each setting! Haha, or maybe I’ve just learned how to pick the right lens, I don’t know.
Okay, a little bit about my make up, it’s red on my lid and fades to blue. I have a bit of white on my inner corner and along my lower lash line. To finish it up I have drawn with black liquid liner, a line that extends from my tear duct all the way out past my eye (like a super wing!). I also lined my bottom lash line with a black eyeliner pencil, with extra emphasis on the outer corner.
Oh yea, and I don’t own red eyeshadow, so I actually used lipstick and it blended very well. I think I might like it more than my eyeshadows, lol!
Bottom line: I find these lens to not look very pink at all. When I order pink lens, I want them to actually show! I felt like it looked a lot more pink on the Klenspop website’s photos. Oh well, this isn’t the first time that I’ve tried pink lens and have been disappointed by the color. I’ve only had one pair of pink lens that I’ve ever loved! The color of these when worn look very brown on my eye color. Too natural in my opinion. Another huge problem that I have with these lens is that the lens for my left eye hurts every time I wear it. I have no trouble with other lenses, so it’s not my eye. I’ve also tried soaking the lens numerous times (even gently rubbed it with my fingers). I can’t seem to clean it as it feels like there’s something in my eye when I wear the lens. Because of this, I will never be ordering lenses manufactured by “Polytouch” ever again. It’s just not worth wearing a brand that has created subpar products when you can get something better like “Geo.”
Lulu Pink Circle Lens Overall Rating: ★★★☆☆
Well with all that said, have a great weekend everyone!
