[Klenspop] NEO Vision Black Cat Circle Lens Review

The holidays were so hectic for me and after an onslaught of what seemed to be endless of family gatherings and other festivities, I finally am back to blogging! I am so sorry for the two-month long hiatus.

For today, I am reviewing a circle lens sent by Klenspop, the NEO Vision Black Cat. They have asked me to choose among their wide array of circle lenses but for some reason I was drawn to this simple, black, circle lenses. I had a couple of gray colored circle lenses but never owned a black one. I chose this because I was so curious on how it would look against my naturally dark eyes already.

 For starters, the package came in a Klenspop customized box kit. The box is too cute, with a beautiful dolly face and  at the back of the box is a step by step guide on how to use and care for contact lenses - perfect for newbies! Giving Klenspop an A+ for that!

The kit includes a lens case, plastic lens tweezers and the pair of contact lens. The safety lens tweezers are actually good in picking up the lens from the case and arranging it onto your finger but I don't really use this since I'm so used to just using my fingers. (Always remember to handle your lenses with clean hands to prevent bacterial infection!)

The NEO Vision Black Cat vials are very pretty; featuring a stretching cat as it's logo. The same logo appears on the top of the vial where the lens power is indicated. Diameter for this lens is 14mm, with 38% water content and a base curve of of 8.4mm. Life span of this particular lens is 1 year. This lens is priced at $13 at Klenspop - not a bad price considering most lenses are priced at $18-$23 and that's without shipping fee.

The Black Cat lenses have a dark outer ring which would give this lens such a dolly effect. Against the white lens case, it seems like the color of the lenses are gray but against my own dark eyes, it was a deep black. It did widen the diameter of my natural eyes and it blended quite well. When I asked people around if they think I was wearing lenses with this on, the answer would always be no. These lenses look so natural that the only difference was that my eyes looked bigger. You can't even see the pixelated design once these lenses are worn.

For those looking for a bright, over-the-top, crazy looking lenses, this one is definitely not it especially if you have naturally dark eyes. For someone who have a naturally different eye color, say, blue or green, this might give you a different subtle effect.

I personally really like this pair of lenses. They are comfortable to wear even after 12 hours. Out of all the circle lenses that I currently have on rotation, this is the one that I wear quite often because it's comfortable and natural looking.

Comfort: ♥♥♥♥♥/5
