Hello! Klenspop recently sent over two pairs of Silicone Hydrogel circle lenses for me to review. Thank-you!
The Belmore Von Natural Fit series have three colours: Bijou Brown, Barbie Brown and Barbie Grey. All the colours; Bijou Brown, Barbie Brown, and Barbie Grey are currently available on Klenspop, and I'll be review Barbie Grey today.
SiH contact lenses have be out for a while now—Johnson & Johnson, Alcon, Bausch + Lomb are some of the companies that make them—but recently, there have been a rise in SiH circle lenses.
"Silicone hydrogel contact lenses are advanced soft lenses that allow more oxygen to pass through the lens to the cornea than regular soft ("hydrogel") contacts. In fact, silicone hydrogel lenses enable up to five times more oxygen to reach the cornea than regular hydrogel lenses."
Belmore Von Natural Fit Barbie Grey
Life Span: 1 year
Base curve: 8.7mm
Graphic Diameter: 13.4mm
Water content: 45%
For a graphic diameter of 13.4mm, they enlarge your iris quite a bit.
Colour & Design: 3/5
These lenses are 2 toned, there's a thick black limbal ring with black and grey spikes. They are quite opaque and don't look natural against dark irises (you know I love my natural looking lenses), although they do blend in well with blue eyes.
I've worn SiH contacts before (Air Optix Aqua and Geo Eyevelyn Choco) and these Belmore lenses are also fresh and comfortable. They're not thick and I can wear them for about 8 hours without the constant need to rewet them.
Von Natural Fit Barbie Grey SiH lenses with UV Blocking properties, would be great for extended day wear, those with blue eyes and those with dry eyes. The thick limbal ring gives you a cute dolly look. The only thing I don't like about them is how opaque they are / they don't blend in well with my iris in the daylight, so I wear these lenses more during the evening/night.
