It’s been a while since I last reviewed contact lenses, but I was approached recently by a new lens store and I loved the designs that they carried so I really hopped on to try these out. These lenses are from an online store called Love Shoppingholics (which really sounds like me) – they still primarily contact lenses (from casual lenses to cosplay lenses) but also a small range of beauty and make up products.
When I first went to check out their website, I was definitely drawn to their lenses first – in particular from a company called Pofee. They have some natural looking lenses, as well as some very unique styles that look like a starry galaxy. Out of those styles, I decided to go with the QLO 7 Gray (USD$18.90 on sale) and the Bling Mermaid Gray (USD$18.90 on sale) – and while both of those lenses are labelled gray, they definitely look different.
So, read on for some photos and thoughts on the products!
I’ve been sitting back on the circle lens reviews lately – mostly because I’ve been working so much that I don’t have the chance to really wear them (since I’m always in front of the computer) but I did get in contact with Uniqso again and this month, I’m going to be featuring and reviewing this pair of super colourful lenses that caught my eye on their website.
Since I last reviewed their products, they have revamped their website – and I really like the new design. I think it’s a lot easier to navigate and, as always, searching for things on their page is really easy. There is also now a feature to auto-convert the prices to different currencies – including Australian! I love that but, for the sake of my readers and conversions, I’ll use USD here.
They also feature reviews on their own page so you can read genuine comments from other people. Aside from coloured lenses, they also sell cosplay costumes and wigs, as well as some cosmetics. Overall, Uniqso mostly sells costume products and so they have a lot of really interesting designs that are pretty hard to find on other sites.
Today, I’m going to be reviewing the Sweety Colorful Rio Pink – these are meant to be a pair of pink lenses but, and you can see this on the website too, they are more rainbow coloured. It has a pink and purple side rim, accented with some yellow and a green inner rim. It really is the first time that I’ve seen something so beautiful!
It took me nearly two months to write this review and, honestly, I am sincerely so sorry to the team at Uniqso that it took me so long to photograph and put down into words how much I love these colour lenses that they sent around to me. For those who have been following me on Instagram, you will know that I was pretty sick recently and had to slow down on a lot of my content and even social media – it’s taken me a long time to feel better and, even now, there are some days that I wake up feeling exhausted. After two weeks of being in bed all the time, another week or two of recovery and getting used to being in the world again, my skin then chose that opportune time to have a major break out from this Hemish product and so it was a struggle to get anything done!
That being said, I want to give a special thank you not only to Uniqso who generously let me choose a pair of lenses to review, but also didn’t chase me up at all during this time and have been so patient with me. In the following review, I’ll give you guys a peek at this pair of pretty grey lenses that I’ve been sporting lately!
That being said, please excuse the horrible state of my skin in these photos. I was still recovered from my break out and, since I told myself to stop over retouching my photos, I tried not to do too much to them.
Ready? Lets go!
Those who have been following my blog for a while know that I have a pretty long term collaboration relationship with Klenspop, a Korean online contact lens store that I absolutely love and wear day-to-day. I’ve always been satisfied or even super impressed by the quality of their products, the affordability and their range so I’m happy to be able to bring you guys new photos, new reviews and new lenses. To kick off lenses in 2017, I’ll be showing you a set that they send me at the end of the last year (and I hadn’t been able to photograph yet until now).
This is the Lizzy Blue lenses by SIO Color, which are silicone hydrogel lenses – they are meant to be more comfortable, allow more oxygen to your eyes (which isn’t directly linked to water content, apparently), and allow for longer, extended wear. Read on for my thoughts on the design, wearability and comfort of these!
I am officially addicted to wearing coloured circle lenses and, honestly, can’t imagine how I’ve gone without them for so long! I love that they give you overall look a nice pop and I think that they really tie an outfit together. Subtle circle lenses are good for more casual or formal events, while striking and eye-catching colours and designs are perfect for fun days out or parties.
In lenses, I usually pay particular attention to the comfort, vibrancy of the colour (how it turns out on my super dark eyes), how well they blend into my natural colour and what sort of make up I think it suits best. For my review for theses pretty, green lenses from Klenspop, I decided to go out of my comfort zone and show how I would wear these paired with a brighter, eye-catching make up look!

Do you guys wear coloured contacts every day? I personally love the look of them – I like the widening effect, I like that I can choose to have a more eye-catching colour or choose to go more demure with something subtler. However, I really can’t wear them every day because I work weekdays in an office where I am staring at the computer all day. I also have a habit of falling sleep on public transport, so it isn’t exactly great for my eyes.
When I do go out though, I often wear coloured lenses. Recently, I received my first review package from Klenspop which had a really pretty pair of gray contacts (that really stand out). This time, I recieved another two pairs from them but I will be talking about one of the first – the BUNNY 3COLOR lenses in Blue! These had a subtle effect on my eyes which would be really suited for every day wear. Compared to the previous ELLEN lenses, I think these are more suited for daytime wear. They look more striking in direct, bright light (as you will see in the below images) but, from a distance, there is a subtle enhancement to my eyes. Please keep in mind that my natural eye colour is a very dark brown – we used to call it black in elementary school – so this may look brighter even on other brown eyes.
