Review: Baby Color Summer Doll Blue Circle Lenses

Hello! ~ Today I want to review a pair of circle lenses that has become one of my most favourite so far, the Baby Color Summer Doll Blue Circle Lenses
Before I start this review I want to point out that I have also seen these lenses reviewed by other bloggers in a vial packed version. They have the exact same name, but the colors seem to look slightly different than the color of the ones I have. On the vial you could see the URL babycolor.com, however, this site does not even exist. So I have no clue what is up with the vial version. Mine come in small cardbox packing with an existing URL, baby-color.com,  printed on them and are packed in blisters, the usually type of packings for circle lenses in Japan and these lenses were apparently produced for the Japanese market. Baby Color seems to be a Chinese circle lens brand (manufacturing in Korea? I am sorry I don't have much information here). I had circle lenses from this brand before, which I bought from a German optician (So, sorry for all of you who might want to know where to get lenses from this brand. Unless you live in Germany I can not help you. But I am sure you can find online stores through google selling them.), so I felt fairly safe using them, despite not really having much info on this brand.


Baby Color Summer Doll Blue Circle Lenses Review

Type:
Soft Contact Lens
Diameter:
15mm 
Water Content:
48%
Base Curve:
8.6mm
Manufacturer:
Baby Color
Disposable:
6 Months (as always, I don't suggest to wear them for longer than max. 3 months)

The diameter of these is listed as 19.8 on the packing, though that's not the accurate diameter when you measure them the way Korean brands usually do. Contact lenses are curved and you usually measure them from one end to the other in curved state. Some manufacturers will give measures when the lens is flattened out, or even state a "enlargement effect" as diameter, because some lenses of the same diameter might make your eyes appear bigger than others depending on the design. So these are not 19.8mm lenses, however, they are still really big. I put them on top of my GEO XTRA lenses, which are 15mm, and they were pretty much the same size, so the actual diameter of these should be about 15mm.

Design: The design of these is really beautiful. You have an outer circle, but it has small "spikes" turning inwards, so the circle blends a bit with the rest of the design and does not look too artificial. The rest of the design is made up by small colored sprinkles and a transparent area in-between them, so your natural eye color shines through a lot, making them blend with your eyes really well. Because they are partly transparent you can see the white around your iris through them, though I always thought, when seeing this effect on other lenses, that it looks really nice, just as if your iris was lighter around the limbal ring.

Color: The color of these is supposed to be blue, but the small sprinkles are two-colored, blue and a light green.  Depending on the light, the light green part can also appear more turquoise-like (like in the official product picture) , but I really think it is more of a green shade. This makes them perfect for both blue and green eyes. I have green eyes and always so much difficulties finding lenses that match, because green circle lenses usually have such an artificial green shade. But this is a very light green and it blends in with my natural green eyes so well.

Enlargement: The enlargement is obviously huge. My eyes never looked that big before.

Comfort: The first time I put them in I felt a bit irritated and thought the comfort was just average, but I think my eyes just needed to adjust to how huge these are. Of course, the bigger the lenses are, the more uncomfortable they are. But afer my eyes seemed to have adjusted to it the comfort was really great, easily comparing to the one of GEO lenses!

I really love these circle lenses a lot and am considering getting them in even more colors. Maybe I will try green next! (^.^)

  5. I really like them too but I don't know why, I have got them in my plano (-1.25) and I feel I can't see right with them... Maybe because they are very big! And you'r right, it demand time to adjust them! I already see you use a lot these one, you are always with them on your photos, and you look very pretty with!

  8. I got the GEO Bambi Princess Mimi Almond Brown, which I just realized you reviewed before and did not like! :-( I hope they'll be ok.

  9. I have read other people's reviews about them and a lot of people seem to think they are okay. It really depends a lot on the person wearing them. I for example cannot wear EOS lenses at all, but a lot of people like them and their comfort.

  10. I don't have good vision, but I always get circle lenses in 0.00, because if I get them in my correct diopter, I never see well with them. Circle Lenses and enhancing poor vision never seems to work well for me.

  11. I think they are among my most favorite too. It's also something "different". I usually like GEO lenses a lot, but if you have gotten a few you start to think that all the designs look very similar to each other. But baby Color seems to have a few cool designs that are rather uncommon. I will try out more from them for sure.

  15. The beautiful burst of blue and yellow spikes, against the black iris, will really make your eyes have an enchanting appearance about them.

  17. wow this is amazing!! wonder where you get these?

  18. For me this kind of advertisement is a guaranteed way to make sure that I never buy from this site.

  19. Hi, did you ever had any problems with the lens, are they durable?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I did not have a problem with them. Durable depends on what you consider durable. I never wear circle lenses for longer than 3 months and they were fine during that period.

  21. Thanks a lot for your reply, we are going to start reselling them but where a little concern about the quality :)
