[Circle lens review] Neo Glamour Brown

Heyo!

Today's post will be on a circle lens! Y'all know how much I love the Neo Glamours - and today's post will be on the Neo Glamour Browns. I like natural looks, so yay brown! Thanks, Eyecandys~

I got another monkey case!
(Same picture used in Hazel review, wasn't necessary to take an identical one, y'know?)


Description



Here’s some more information about these lenses!

Name: Glamour Brown
Brand: Neo Vision
Origin: South Korea
Water content: 45%
Diameter: 14.2mm
Base curve: 8.6
Life: 1 year (I do not recommended using any lenses for 3+ months)

Colours available (8): hazel, brown, honey, gray, green, blue, aqua, violet

Price: Currently $29.60 [here]



Design 


The design is super pretty, as all Neo Glamours are. They're 3 toned, so the colours blend nicely together and give a natural, pretty look.

This lens does have a pretty unique, interesting design. Instead of having a solid limbal ring like most circle lenses, they have jagged edges! These lines do look a lot more natural than a normal, solid limbal ring would. 

These lenses start (outside to in) by a thin, black limbal ring and changes to a warm brown colour, finishing off with a orangey yellow. 



Pictures 




The picture below shows me wearing the lenses in different lightings; the first is in flash, then window light, and the last one indoor. 



I thought I'd have pictures here comparing the Glamour browns to the Glamour hazels. Before I had either lens, I was debating on getting either the Brown or the Hazel. On the site pictures, it was difficult to tell the difference between the two.

NOTE: I haven't posted the review for the Hazels just yet - it'll be posted next.
Eyeballs, yay! (Left-brown, Right-hazel)


My thoughts

I do really, really like this colour - the Glamour browns are pretty. I do think they're a bit too reddish for me. The hazels were super, vampy red; but the browns also have a tinge of red as well. However, I do like these better than the hazels (because they're more natural compared to them).

These lenses have a brown colour up close - but from further away, it really does have a hint of red that you can't miss. As pretty as it is, it's not natural enough for me to wear comfortably in public. Please take a look at the pictures on the bottom to see what I mean. (Again, I think I look like a vampire.)

 I'll happily wear these for a specific FOTD or for a post, though! The colour shows up very clearly, which I like! But for real-life wear? Hmm... maybe not.

Also... the comfort level on this particular lens seems to be different from my other Glamours. I have no idea why, but these aren't as comfy as my other ones. I can get maybe 3-4 hours in, before my eyes start feeling really dry. Sadly, this lens doesn't pass the comfort test! T___T

As always, these lenses really aren't meant for enlargement. They offer very little (if any) - so if you're specifically looking for a "big eyed" effect, these won't be a good choice!

= I like the lenses, but they're not as natural or comfortable as I'd like them to be. Sorry, Glamour Browns... but I probably won't be repurchasing you. T__T

What about you?
Do you like the colour of these? Do you like the "vampire" eye colour?



----------------------------


Question: My Korean cosmetic reviews seem to be much popular than my circle lens reviews (though quite a few people still read/comment on lens reviews as well). 

But I was just curious - do you guys want me to continue reviewing lenses? Or should I completely stop lens reviews and focus on cosmetics? 

(If its decided not to post more lens reviews, I'll just post the remaining lens reviews I have and stop receiving new lenses for review).

[Circle lens review] Neo Glamour Gray

I'm addicted to the Neo glamours, I swear!

Small diameter, 3 tone lenses have always been my favourite - the big eyed "dolly" look does not go well with my face, I assure you. Small diameters are more comfortable for me, and don't give a freaky deaky look. Also, the blending of the 3 colours in Neo Glamours are so pretty and natural looking.

I know what the Neo Glamours are like in terms of size, comfort and wearability, but I've never tried a gray lens. Thanks, Eyecandys!



Eyecandys is one of the biggest and well known circle lens sites online. They've got an absolutely adorable store layout, it's the cutest (and most elegant) I've seen so far! It's easy to browse around and look for the circle lens design that you want. If you're new at circle lenses, have no fear - there's an information section for new lens wearers. I'd recommend giving it a peek.


On to the review!


Here's what I received - a pair of the Neo Glamour Gray lenses in a cute little "star" mesh sacky (uh, what do you call those things?). It also came with the cutest little lens case I've seen. Monkey case, whoop!


These 3D "Mio Friend" cases are really cute, and they come seperately and securely packaged. They also come with a little tweezer, which has been helpful for me. I don't really use tweezers to take out my lens from the actual case (admittedly, I use my clean fingers to do that - is that bad?) but they've been a lifesaver at taking out the lens from the vial. Those little suckers can stubbornly stick to the bottom of the vial!

Eyecandys is also randomly giving away these lens cases when you make a purchase! ARGH I WANT THE FROGGIE. T___T





Description of Neo Glamour Gray

These lenses give a "sweet and natural look". It's one of Neo Vision's bestsellers on Eyecandys, and there have been lots of people who are super happy with these.

Name: Glamour Gray
Brand: Neo
Origin: South Korea
Water content: 42%
Diameter: 14.2 mm
Base curve: 8.6
Life: 1 year (I do not recommend using any lenses for more than 3 months)

Colours avaliable (8): Gray, brown, hazel, honey, blue, aqua, violet, green
Price: Currently $29.60 [here]




Design

Y'all know that the Neo glamours are one of my favourites, the design is lovely and very, very natural looking. The lenses themselves aren't too big either, but do give a little wee bit of enlargement. The following design description is from my Glamour green review. 

This lens does have a pretty unique, interesting design. Instead of having a solid limbal ring like most circle lenses, they have jagged edges! These lines do look a lot more natural than a normal, solid limbal ring would. 

It begins with black/dark gray colour lines, and changes to an "icy" gray, then finishing off with a deep yellowy gold colour.





Pictures 


Up close, the lenses have almost a "blue" colour to them, instead of gray. But from further away, it definitely looks more gray than blue.

Really, how freaky do I look like with the "up stare" + no lashes? Tell me, hahaha. ("Indoor lightning" pictures of the worn lenses will be posted in the next few days, don't fret!)

Comparison, flash, window lighting



My thoughts

Store service was quick and nice, and I had the pleasure of talking to one of their employees, Chloe. As for shipping, it was pretty fast! I think I received these lenses within 2 weeks, and they were decently packaged (They came in an envelope, not a box).

Hum, I do like these lenses! As always, the Neo Glamour lenses are super comfortable - I honestly do not feel these in my eyes, and they don't irritate me in the least. The 42% water content is nice and comfortable, heh. I think I can wear these lenses for a good 6-7 hours before feeling anything. Inserting them in, wearing them, and taking them out - each "stage" of using these lenses was easy, simple and comfortable. No hassle dassle~

When I wore my green Glamours, I mentioned that sometimes the lens didn't "stick" to my eye, and moved around a bit. It kind of looked like a "halo" effect, but not as nice - it looked like a misplaced lens. This weird effect only lasted for a bit before returning to normal, and it wasn't a big deal.

But with the gray Glamours, I don't have this mini-problem whatsoever. It doesn't move around, and gives me no trouble at all.

As for design and colour - I do like it! I'm not too big of a fan of gray lenses because I don't think the colour looks as good on me, but it was alright. The colour payoff was good, and the lens colour covered my natural brown eyes excellently. The colour doesn't look too obvious from a distance - in my opinion, it looks really natural and gives a good "oomph" to your eyes. There's a slight, pretty change to the eyes.

Recommend?

If you're looking for a pair of lenses that are natural (in both colour and size), I'd highly recommend these lenses. They'll be perfect for a natural look! These lenses have made me love the Glamours all over again. Maybe when these expire ("Expire" means 3 months for me), I'll buy another exact pair! (I say "maybe", because I'm not yet sure if the other colours will blow me away and make me want to buy those, hah.)

If you're looking for a large size, "look at me" lenses, I wouldn't recommend these. They're not big, and offer little enlargement; and the colour is too natural to be used for standout, obvious lenses.



More pictures 

Here's some more pictures of the lenses in action! (Lighting again was a bit everywhere, please excuse.)





I'm holding an animal here, btw. Just incase you were wondering.
Hope you enjoyed the review!

[Circle lens review] Neo Glamour Green!

Hi! It's 12:39am right now, and I'm absolutely dead tired. My eyes feel kind of heavy and whatnot, but I really, really wanted to write about these pair of lenses right now. I'm a happy lens camper, you see.

I've mentioned that the Geo world series were my first lens, and when I first saw them on a store website, I was all "that. is. mine!"

Well, I'm here today to talk about the 2nd line of lenses that made me go ga-ga. It's another 3 tone lens (yes, we know I'm crazy about 3 tones), from Neo Vision. I'll be talking about the Neo Vision glamour lens in green! Thank you very much to Honeycolor, who has sponsored this review.




First, let's have a quick look at Honeycolor - they're one of the most well known online circle lens stores, known for their huge circle lens collection. On top of having such a selection, Honeycolor also has great selection of false eyelashes. You can find famous brands like Dollywink, Jumily, Diamond lash and Eyemazing there!

The lenses came in this little box, which I really like. The front of the box has the Honeycolor company name printed on it - the back shows pictures on how to insert the lens into your eye! Its great help for beginners, who may not know how to put on lenses. The lenses also come with an adorable case! I got a purple fishy case, heheh! ^o^




So, I'll begin by telling you a little more about the Neo Glamour green lenses!

Diameter: 14.2
BC (Base curve): 8.6
Water content: 45%
Life: 1 year 
Certified by: KFDA, UKAS 054, ISO 13485, CE 0499, GMP
Colours available (8): Green, hazel, blue, brown, honey, violet, gray, aqua

Price: Currently $26.32 [here]



Design

This lens does have a pretty unique, interesting design. Instead of having a solid limbal ring like most circle lenses, they have jagged edges! These lines do look a lot more natural than a normal, solid limbal ring would. 

The green colour of the lens doesn't show up too much when it's in the case, but there are 3 colours that blend in together. It begins with black/dark gray colour lines, and changes to a natural green, then finishing off with a deep yellow colour. 





Pictures



You can see that the lens colours do blend in well with my natural eye colour. It doesn't really give off a vibrant green look, but rather a natural, murky green. I really, really like that! (As usual, I wasn't going for a vibrant eye look!)

In the picture below, I'm wearing the lenses in different lightings. The first one is just in my hall. The second one has me standing in front of a window (window light), and the last is just flash. 






My thoughts

Honeycolour service: I'd have to say that the store service is brilliant - they always reply quickly, and very politely. Not all stores can offer the 2 (speed and politeness) together in customer service, so I like that a lot. 
The shipping was extra fast - it only came in a couple of days for me. Honeycolour does offer several different shipping options, so you can choose whatever option fits your budget. On average (if you choose the cheapest method), it'll take approximately 2 weeks. 

As for the lenses - I do really, really, honestly like these. They give off a natural look, which I can always appreciate! They're not as HUGE on me as the Geo nudys, it only gives off a slight enlargement. When in regular room light, it's not too obvious that you're wearing lenses. However, they do change your appearance a little bit, enough to make a slight, nice change.

Comfort is brilliant. I can't even feel them in my eyes (as all contacts should be, haha), and I forget I'm wearing them! These lenses have a 45% water content - this makes them super, duper comfortable and I can easily wear these for a long time (7+ hours). Brilliant. 

The only thing I'd have to point out is that sometimes, the right lens doesn't seem to "stick" onto my eye properly. It moves around a very, very little bit. It's nothing that other people will notice (if it does indeed move). It's not much to worry about and no one notices it, though. (It's probably just my eye adjusting to it.)

Brilliant lenses, love them! I hope I can try out all the colours in this line, hehe. My next favourites (by colour) are hazel, honey and brown!
