Contact Lens Review: Clear Color CL101 Brown

If you're on the look out for the most natural brown contact lens in the market, forget everything I've said in the past. THIS IS THE REAL DEAL!


A few years back, I've had an exact similar looking pair like this but it's from another brand. I opted getting one of these very natural looking ones simply because I get tired of being called that I look like a doll or that I look too Kpop-ish sometimes. Mainly because most of my lenses before were the oversized 14.5mm ones that will tend to make you look a bit younger. There are times that I'd get tired of the "cutesy" look and end up wanting a more mature look so I ended up ordering my first regular sized lens and the rest is history.

I know what you're thinking, why bother getting brown lenses if you could have the clear ones? The answer is simple, I'm a bit blind without my glasses or contacts on. So putting them on might be a task for me already. Imagine trying to figure out which side is right side up or worse, looking for them if they've accidentally fell off!


Last week, I got to receive these new pair of lenses from Klenspop, the leading company of circle lens and cosmetic lens in South Korea. And I'm surprised to see that they have a lot of new products up in the site including the locally hard to find ones like EOS, Dali, Neo Cosmo and many more! I'm planning to get a new one since my favorite green lens has already expired, I'll keep you guys posted if ever I get my hands on one soon!

The entire package contains the ff: contact lens case, lens tweezers and vials of the circle lens.

Unlike the other ones I've got, these ones don't come with the contact lens manual and they don't have it printed at the back of the box too. You have to admit though, the new packaging looks so much better! It looks more fun and interesting than the last one!

DESIGN

Here's what they look like when worn:

Rating: 2/5 stars

The design of the Clear Color Cl101 Brown has a unique whirl pattern that blends seamlessly into the eyes especially on most people with dark brown irises. They're very natural on Asian eyes that it's like you're not wearing anything at all! Which comes of as a surprise to me because these are just one toned lens and the design barely has a gradient at all. For me, I believe that these pair is an exact twin of my Crystal Garnet Brown. The only difference is that the design print of these ones are a little bit thicker and the whirl looks more prominent compared to the Crystal Garnet Brown.


COLOR

From Top to Bottom: Crystal Peridot Brown, Clear Color CL101 Brown and Lenspop Bunny Color Brown

Rating: 3/5 stars

The thing I like about these lenses are they come in true brown. However, the chocolatey brown color is too dark for most people. Thus, DON'T expect any color change with this one unless you have light colored irises! I have really dark irises so don't expect that they'll look exactly the same with your eyes.


ENLARGEMENT


Rating: 2/5 stars

Just like any regular sized lens at 14mm, don't expect too much enlargement with these.
With a flat one tone design and a graphic diameter of 13.3mm, it does make your irises appear to be a little bit bigger but it's not that too noticeable.


COMFORT


Rating: 5/5 stars

When I do a contact lens review I make it a point to wear them for a long period before writing anything. These are very comfortable and up to this point I haven't encountered any discomfort or any irritation with these lenses.


OVERALL

The Clear Color CL101 Brown is the most natural looking lens that I've blogged about up to this date and they're even more natural looking than my Canis Grey lenses! Even my boyfriend who seems to notice anything I wear doesn't suspect that I have these on when I first tried these. Lol. You have to admit, some people might find these lenses a bit too simple and not too spectacular. But they're a must-have simply because they're really versatile and you could wear it at any day whether you want to go out or just look laid back. Simple and practical.

Here's some more selfies to show how natural they look on me:



For more affordable Korean contact lens like this you better check out Klenspop's online shop at http://klenspop.com/en/ where they have a wide variety of designs, different brands and sweet deals / discounts!

PS: If I were you, I'd take advantage of their 40% off sale. Currently, they have a POP MARKETPLACE where you could get affordable lenses for as low as $5 each! Sounds sweet, right?
