Sponsored review: [Neo Vision circle lenses] Madonna Gray 13.5mm from Kpop2

July 02, 2013
I love circle lenses. I feel like they just complete my entire look, no matter where I'm going - whether it's to a fancy event or just a casual day out with a friend.

I only recently got into wearing them last year and currently have three pairs that I use. One of them, my newest pair, was kindly sponsored by Kpop2.com, a Korea based website that sells over 300 kinds of lenses at very affordable prices. You can shop for lenses by color, brand, size, type or even browse a specific category which features lenses that retail for only $10. Didn't I say they were affordable? Plus if your order totals over $50, you get free shipping! Also yes, they do ship worldwide.


My package arrived almost two weeks after they confirmed it was shipped out. The contents were in perfect condition thanks to how securely and properly they packaged everything!


They asked me to choose which lenses I wanted so I decided on their Neo VisionMadonna Gray 13.5mm pair. My other two pairs are dark in color, so I wanted something lighter that would also stand out more. I also requested for them to add a grade of 3.00 for both lenses.

Product details:
Product name / Madonna Gray             Overall diameter (DIA ) / 14.0mm
Duration of use / 6 months or more      Graphic diameter / 13.5mm
Manufacturer / NEO                                 Moisture content / 38%
Place of origin / KOREA                          BC / 8.6mm
Frequency range / 0.00 to -9.00            Astigmatic / impossible



My initial surprise with the lenses was actually the color. On the product page (link), it looks entirely different. The ones I received do have an underlying gray color, which is seen best under artificial light, but even so they're still more blue than gray.

I'm not disappointed by the color at all. I love it actually! It just wasn't what I expected. What I love most is how the color changes slightly depending on the lighting.

I got a lot of compliments wearing this pair too - mostly that the color really suits me because it looks like it could be my natural eye color.

In terms of their size, the lens' diameters aren't much bigger than my actual irises so they don't make my eyes look dramatically larger. The only small complaint I have is that from a full-frontal view, you can see the black 'border' of the lenses are a little uneven with one being thicker than the other.

Overall though, I'm really pleased with my first pair of bright colored lenses. They're very comfortable to wear and don't dry my eyes out as much as my other ones even if the water content is lesser. But in fairness, my eyes tend to become dry really easily so it doesn't matter what lenses I'm using. I'm also pleased by the number of compliments I got from wearing them so I'm already considering ordering this pair once they're no longer useable.

Lastly, thank you Kpop2 for sending these!

WHAT I LIKE:
  • The color. Even if I was expecting and hoping for lenses that were gray, I still love the blue shade.
  • Non-irritating and doesn't dry my eyes right away.
  • Comfortable to wear.
  • Lens case included.

WHAT I DON'T LIKE:
  • Lens' borders are uneven.

Price: $10.99 (PHP), Can be purchased from: Kpop2.com

  3. I found it strange too, but it's just a very minor issue so I'm not too bothered by it.

  6. I guess blending in well with the brown is what makes them look more natural. :)

  7. Awesome color sis! I love the simple design too =)

  8. Me too. Sometimes simple is best when it comes to lenses!

  9. Circle lenses look so awesome, but I'm afraid to give them a try because my eye is sensitive and I heard it's not too great for your eyes in general. :(

  10. I have friends who've been wearing circle lenses for years and they haven't complained about any negative effects on their eyes. I wear lenses pretty much daily and I can say the same so far. I've also been wearing regular contact lenses since I was in high school though so my eyes are used to them.


    Of course it's a different story if your eyes are sensitive and I wouldn't recommend them either if that's the case!

  11. I think they look really creepy, and when I see people wearing them I can't look them in the eye.

  12. Circle lenses, like many other aspects of beauty, are a subjective thing. :)

  13. Circle lens is cool, but maybe not this color...

  16. Whoa! I love that colour, even if it may be the wrong shade. They do look a little fake close up, but then again I have never seen any other contact lenses this close! :p

  17. My eye doctor told me it is bad to wear them for everyday wear just as regular lenses... but it depends a lot on the brand new. I might try them just to see!

  18. i love coloured contacts, although i don't wear them they seem like so much fun

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think I like your natural eye color better.. :D I myself is a contact wearer but never tried the colored ones..hmmmmm

    ReplyDelete
  20. I´ve never tried color lenses before, but yours are looking fabulous. http://kjandersen.wordpress.com/

  21. Thanks! What I love most about colored lenses is how much they can alter your entire look. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Haha, thank you! I used to wear regular (clear) contact lenses, but now I either wear graded circle lenses or just my glasses.

    ReplyDelete
  23. They're definitely fun, especially if you collect a number of them and switch them up often for everyday looks. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Me too! In the end it was a pleasant surprise. And yes, circle lenses never look natural close up anyway, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I always make sure to use only from reputable brands that I've seen a lot of good reviews on, have tried myself, etc. :)

  26. Circle lenses is one beauty related that I've yet to venture on. I'm not sure what it is that doesn't attract me as much - I think it's the touching my eyeballs bit haha. Did try contact lenses before and was such a pain to take them off LOL. I gotta be honest though, this really suits you and pop your look in a good way. x Much love hun

  27. Thanks, Donah! :) I've been wearing contact lenses since I was 14 so I'm more than comfortable already with touching or poking my eye, haha. I used to be lazy with taking them off but now that my eyes easily become dry, I'm only too happy with removing them at the end of the day!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I don't use lens because I'm more comfortable using my spectacles. As it is I have very high minus power, so I don't quite trust myself with lens. But I love the colour of this. Amazing post and great job on the review! :)
