I got this pair the same time as my last one that I reviewed, the I fax Y33 (brown). You can read the review for that here.
In my last lens review, I showed the new Klenspop packing. Check it out if you are interested. Otherwise, as pictured above, the lens come with a new contact case and tongs.

The design of the Clouds Brown lens is one of the most basic patterns you can get. There really isn’t too much going on besides sheer subtlety. Instead of having a stark thick black outline to the lens, we have a dotted one, creating a softer look. You still get the nice black outline to help define the iris’ shape, but it is without the blaring perfection that ultimately screams artificial.
There is however little spikes of black that move in towards the pupil. These small spikes could hardly be noticed unless you take a second look. They truly add to the design showing that the maker really did put some thought into this seemingly basic pattern.
Next we can move on to look at the brown pigments of the lens. Indeed the brown seems to be just a dotted ring section of the same shade, however if you analyze it closer, you can see that there are two brown shades. It’s a very minimal color change, but works magic when worn. These shifts in color help provide depth to the eye to create a more realistic appearance.
These lens are great for a natural enlargement. They do the job without over doing it, if you know what I mean? Great for if you have a professional job where you’d like to be taken seriously.
And now, here’s what the lens look like in different lighting situations.
Overall, I think these lens look quite natural indoors. When under florescent or bright lighting, the lens are visible but have a gorgeous brown shade to them. And surprisingly with direct flash to the face, these lens don’t light up the same way.
Here are a few more close up shots of the lens for an idea of how it looks. Though I imagine no one would ever look at your eyes this close…
Clouds Brown Overall Rating: ★★★★★
Have you tried any of the Cloud circle lens before? What do you think?
