Yay! A new circle lens review!
It’s been so long since I’ve reviewed circle lenses – in fact I’d almost stopped using circle lenses and had thrown out all my existing lenses, when I was contacted by Pinkicon to review one of their lenses. Let’s just put it out there right now that although the lenses in this review were sent to me by Pinkicon at no cost, all opinions are 100% my own and honest. Kay, let’s continue!
O-lens is a brand I have never tried before. I mostly wore GEO or EOS lenses previously (and reviewed some of them). They were popular/well established brands and therefore less likely to be counterfeit/have problems? Not entirely logical I know, but I just couldn’t be bothered researching reviews on other brands tbh 😛
This time though, I was wanted to try the BaviPhat 3 color grey lenses because they’re
- 14.00mm DIA (slightly enlarging)
- 6-month lenses rather than the yearly ones I used to have
- I still love grey/brown lenses. So unnatural but subtly so ❤
Over the years, intensive contact lens usage has made my eyes rather sensitive and dry so I really wanted to move off thick circle lenses and even use proper prescription lenses sparingly.
The package that I received:
I really liked the Eye coffret UV 1 day lenses and the Heroine make 1 day lenses from the first page of the pamphlet. They sound comfortable and good for work. *worker life*
Details of the colors and design – brown in the centre, grey, and then black around the outside. I like the speckled print designs rather than solid color print because it blends easier and looks more natural/softer ^^
The following is a comparison of enlargement and how they look in different lighting.
I was so disoriented taking the first photo cause my lenses have power and it was weeeird seeing clearly in one eye and so not in the other! Might just do both eyes with and without lenses in the future haha
Also apologies about the low quality in tungsten lighting. Long story short – it looks natural in low light yeah? 😀
The size is indeed, perfect~ Enlarging, but not as crazy as the EOS ice 14.5mm lenses I had xD
So far, they’ve been pretty comfortable. I’ve worn them for 11 hours today (first time wearing these lenses at all), and it’s not feeling dry yet. Of course, lenses usually dry faster over time (or at least that’s my experience) but maybe it’s because of the smaller lens size, or whatever but this lens has been comfortable so far! There have been lenses that felt dry literally the first day I wore them (even though it 100% should not!), so I’m pretty impressed with these.
It’s listed as 32USD for a pair on pinkicon’s site. OK to be exact 31.73 but eh, such an awkward number. Anyway, the price is alright, given Pinkicon gives free standard worldwide shipping. There’s also free speed post service for the first 1kg if you purchase over 250USD. I used to always bulk order with friends, so this would have been perfect to get our lenses quick for no extra cost wtf ;w;
All in all, I think these lenses would be good for purchasing both for work and weekend look, and the comfort is top notch! Additionally, I loved how natural they look in flash light! Good job O-lens!! The only downside is that if you’re really tight on budget, this might be on the pricier side, compared to the other lenses on the market? All in all, considering it’s the same price as I’d pay for 1 month prescription lenses, I’d be happy to repurchase when this pair expires.
