Disclaimer I bought these with my own money. :) honest review guaranteed. thanks for checking it out readers :)
Yes, FINALLY a pink lenses in my collection!
Okay, technically, i have only two pairs of lenses as my other 2 have expired
You've noticed my previous lenses were all GEOs and all of a sudden, SUPER BARBIE.
Why the sudden change? Because while being consistent is good, being adventurous is FUN :D.
The super barbie lenses is another Korean circle lenses brand (although strangely the texts on the vials are in Japanese.)
WHile it is more expensive, I'm pleasantly surprised to find it more comfortable than GEO. I don't know what to credit, as the water content is similar to GEO, yet, it is bigger (most super barbie lenses are 15.8 mm while only the GEO super nudy and super angel i.e. those with the letter X as the first letter in the code are that big)
I've wanted to try out more comfortable circle lenses. Many have recommended EoS, NEO, and some other korean brand, but, sigh, they aren't that easily available in Singapore *sigh*
Look, GEO, you need this plastic to prevent the metal from cutting our finger. when I say need, I truly mean NEED ;)
Proof of being more comfy :
all my geo lenses, magically stings my *eitherrightorleft, i'm horrible with these kind of thing* left eye for some reason, especially when I just pop them in. After that, my eyes will teared up, and I will cry *sob sob sob*. Nonetheless, after that, you don't feel anything. They're gone. Well, technically they are still in your eyes, but yeah. If you are someone new to contact lenses, this might not be a good first time impression of circle lenses (talking about trauma, you know). But, seeing that they are only S$15, well, they aren't bad at all!! worth of trying if you had not tried them in your life.
However, my super barbie sweet lenses don't make tears welling up my eyes, I WAS SHOCKED :O Doesn't sting either. Well, drawback is, you still can only wear them for 8 hours. Rewetting is still essential though when wearing circle lenses, I'd say, regardless of how good they are. Plus, although many seller may tell you that 48% water content is high, it is NOT at all.
Okay, that being said, my impression of this brand is pretty good (plus I'm a sucker :x, I have repeatedly admitted that).
Now, let's be more specific to the SWEET PINK Lenses shall we?
I actually chose this design due to its similarity to the Beaucon Jewel series (one on Masuwaka Tsubasa's advertisement *often*). See how much a sucker I am? I love love tsubasa ok. This design have thick limbal ring (the black outer ring) with rather pixelated design for the pink that makes it seems as if your eyes are glowing and super huge.
What I love about pink lenses is, it's going to look like brown in some lighting while retaining the pink tone. Pink is only seen clearly in stronger (more whitish) lighting (and of course, if you look closer to the eye). One of my friend has freaked out due to the fact they are pink, *IKR* ONLY after I told her it's pink. *proof how much our judgement is much more by perception than
Seriously, need I say more? I thought I told you the good points already. :PP scroll up and search for words in blue or red (yay for superman colour scheme :D )
Just nice for me but if you want to look super dolly, I'd still recommend black lenses rather than these lenses :) well, choice is entirely on you though :)
NICELY DESIGNED AND COMFORTABLE LENSES THAT I CAN SEE MYSELF REPURCHASING IN THE FUTURE. PINK FTW!!
So, if you want to know where I got my lenses, it's actually instock lenses from ARCHANGEL LENS HOUSE (in facebook). I knew about this site from miyake (she's super pretty right XD. ups, sidetracking)
the shop is Malaysian based but she had the lenses sent to someone in singapore (Kiyomi Lim), who'd post the lenses by registered post only. It is therefore 'spree' in a sense but it takes less than 2 weeks to reach after the spree :)
The lenses costs $28 inclusive of all the nitty gritty postage fee etc.
Overall, it's been quite pleasant experience to purchase the lenses there :))
