REVIEW: Von Natural Fit Barbie Brown*

Hey there, so this is the second of the two pairs of Silicone Hydrogel circle lenses that Klenspop sent me to review. Thanks again!

The Belmore Von Natural Fit series have three colours: Bijou Brown, Barbie Brown and Barbie Grey. All the colours; Bijou BrownBarbie Brown, and Barbie Grey are currently available on Klenspop, and I'll be review Barbie Brown 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 Brown
Life Span: 1 year
Base curve: 8.7mm
Diameter: 14.2mm
Graphic Diameter: 13.4mm
Water content: 45%
UV Blocking

Enlargement: 3.5/5
For a graphic diameter of 13.4mm, they enlarge your iris quite a bit.

Colour & Design: 3.5/5
Because I the lenses I got where from two different manufacturing dates/line, one lens is a bit more saturated than the other—I think it's only noticeable depending on the lighting. (This isn't the first time I've received lens where one is slightly saturated than the other, it happens)

These lenses are 2 toned, there's a thick black limbal ring with black and brown spikes. They are quite opaque and don't blend in well, so it's quite obvious that you're wearing circle lenses if someone is up close to you. From afar, it looks like there's a glow in the iris.

Comfort: 5/5
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.

Overall: 4/5
Von Natural Fit Barbie Brown SiH lenses with UV Blocking properties, would be great for extended day wear, for cosplaying, and those with dry eyes. The thick limbal ring gives you a cute dolly look. Same with the grey lenses, I'm not a fan of how opaque these contact lens are and prefer ones with patterns that blend in nicely with my iris—but oh, how comfortable they are!
