Circle Lens Review: Neo Dali Brown (Toric)

Hello my little Eyecoholics~

Surprise, surprise, I have 2 posts for you this month (amazing, I know). 2 months ago, I went to get my eyes checked up again and found out I had astigmatism. Because of that, buying regular circle lenses is a lot more expensive and the options are a lot less. I purchased my recent pair from HoneyColor because they were reliable and I’m so glad that I chose them because my custom contacts were created and sent to me in about a month. There was also a holiday promo for getting a free choker. Unfortunately, they ran out, so I got a cute ice-cream pouch instead.

The package came in after a month and there was free shipping.

Pretty standard plain white box that HoneyColor gives.

Everything was safely packaged and nothing was damaged.

The cute little pouch I got, it doesn’t hold much, but the picture makes me smile 🙂

HoneyColor lenses always have a very fun and colorful box for the lenses themselves. (I however didn’t receive a coupon code like I did before)

These were actually a surprise, the order form had pretty boring green contact cases, but I was presently surprised to find that I got purple owl ones instead. I wonder if it’s compensation for the choker or not.

Your typical glass containers. I was really proud of myself for being able to take off the metal party without any complications. Like an idiot though, I opened them both up and then forgot which one was which eye because I was so excited to see them.

Pretty standard natural lenses, they didn’t have a dark limbo ring to enlarge my eyes and they had very minimal graphic designs on them.

Basic contact procedure is to soak the lenses in new contact solution for 24 hours before wearing them.

Specs: Neo Dali Brown (Toric)

Brand: Neo Vision
Diameter: 14.2mm
Base Curve: 8.60mm
Water Content: 45%
Power Range: 0.00 ~ -10

Comfort: 3/5

These lenses are so dry. They make my eyes irritated and I used a ton of contact solution and eye drops to keep going the whole day. I used an entire bottle in about 8 hours, which is pretty bad compared to the couple of drops I use for the entire day with the GEO Eyevelyn Choco. It was quite bad, but there were times I didn’t notice it at all for a couple hours.

Color: 5/5

I wanted them natural, they’re natural. They blend pretty well with my eyes, although my friends do say my eyes look darker which I don’t understand why because the color of the lenses are lighter than my actual eye color.

Enlargement: .5/5 (0 meaning none, 5 meaning tons)

Similar to the GEO Eyevelyn Choco, these lenses weren’t bought with the intention on enlarge, however they did so slightly. I’m not complaining too much because I can still wear them without makeup and not look too “animey”.

Naturalness: 5/5

They looked super natural, it looks like I don’t have contacts in at all.

Buy or Bye

Bye, I would rather look somewhere else for toric lenses because they are pretty uncomfortable to wear on a daily basis and I just decided to stick with my old, out of prescription glasses until my new ones arrived.

Note, the thing with toric lenses is that they take quite a bit of time to adjust to your eyes, but after they do that, it’s crystal clear.

Company: 10/10

 

Like always, HoneyColor was a fantastic company to work with. They took no time for me to receive my order and it was very accurate to what was described.

Overall: 5/10 Potatoes

Although I liked the shipping time and product, the dryness was too much for me on a day to day basis. I did wear the lenses during my senior pictures, but other than that, I don’t know how often I would actually wear them in comparison to my glasses.

I can’t believe I got two posts done in a month (with another on the works at the moment)! Thanks for reading and have an amazing day 🙂

*Photos of the actual lenses being worn will be updated soon.

Circle Lens Review: GEO Eyevelyn Choco & Neo Sunflower Violet

Hello my little Eyecoholics~

I’ve been putting off blogging about this (great first impression am I right?), but I’m so excited to tell you about these contacts I got. I recently bought a pair of contacts from HoneyColor.com and I’m soooo in love with what I got. Their Color Wave Event offered me an extra pair of contacts and animal case for every pair of contacts I bought (1 for 1? How do they make money? :O). The pair I bought was the GEO Eyevelyn Contacts in the color Choco. Their description (photo below) and the many reviews I read made me decide that I should take the chance with these.

I think what really caught my attention was the black limbo ring, that usually accompanies contacts, wasn’t there (help makes it more natural looking), provides UV protection, and is approved by the US FDA.

The contacts came in 2 weeks (processing and shipping time) and shipping was $7.00.

Each pair of contacts came with an adorable animal case ❤

Specs: GEO Eyevelyn Choco

Brand: GEO Medical
Diameter: 14.2mm
Base Curve: 8.60mm
Water Content: 40% +/- 2%
Power Range: 0.00 ~ -7.50

Comfort: 5/5

The biggest problem I had with these are the fact that when I first tried them on, the lens were backwards (they didn’t look any different from normal) so it started to get irritated after a bit but after I switched it, they were sooo comfy! I had them on 10 hours and I didn’t have to use my Magic Eye Water (eye drops) once.

Color: 5/5

I bought them to  be natural and that’s what they are. The contacts themselves had a nice gradient from the outside in and blended seamlessly with my eyes.

Enlargement: .5/5 (0 meaning none, 5 meaning tons)

I didn’t buy them for their enlargement but they did enlarge it a tad bit (I have small eyes). The Neo Violet, although the same size, didn’t have that problem so I’m not sure what happened because both are 14.2mm in diameter.

Naturalness: 5/5

They looked super natural, it looks like I don’t have contacts in at all.

Buy or Bye

100% BUY. I will definitely buy these again and no review is better than a repeated purchase.

Specs: Neo Sunflower Violet

Brand: Neo Vision
Diameter: 14.2mm
Base Curve: 8.60mm
Water Content: 45%
Power Range: 0.00 ~ -10.00

Comfort: 3.5/5

Just like the Eyevelyn, I wore them backwards (^^”) but after that they were pretty comfortable. They didn’t feel super moisturizing like the Eyevelyn,they didn’t feel super drying, which was weird, because I wasn’t sure if I wanted to put some Magic Eye Water (contact solution) on them or not.

Color: 3/5

The color is a dark purple, that said, my eyes are also dark brown so you can’t see them at all in dark lighting and only a little bit in a lighted room, but they look pretty in sunlight. I wish these were more vibrant though.

Enlargement: 0/5

These fit perfectly. I didn’t want enlargement (this time) and that’s exactly what I got. I really like smaller contacts simply because my eyes are small and big contacts are either: 1. uncomfortable or 2. make me look like I have no whites in my eyes.

Naturalness: 4.5/5

The contacts look really natural for something that’s purple, but on my dark eyes, they blend really well.

Buy or Bye:

Bye. I wouldn’t purchase these simply because I like a more vibrant color and these didn’t deliver on that.

HoneyColor was an amazing company to order from, the website layout was easy to maneuver through, and the shipping speed was phenomenal. I’m amazed they had a 1 for 1 sale and I enjoyed the cases they provided.

Overall: 9/10 Potatoes

I really enjoyed the contacts I was given and find myself using them often. The contacts arrived in a very timely manner, prices were hard to beat, and they have a really nice point system that I will definitely be taking advantage of later in the future.

That’s all I have for this time! Thanks for reading and have an amazing day 🙂
