I have a lot of coloured lenses in my possession, of almost every colour. But I didn't have black ones yet. So when Klenspop allowed me to try a black pair I got excited. I have reviewed Klenspop many times, so if you want to know about the service and shipping, scroll through the "review" tab of my blog. These lenses are called "Arte Black" by the brand "New Bio". You can check them out here.
When I looked at the lenses on the website I was expecting for them to give me a somewhat scary look. I liked that idea, so I was really surprised when I put them in and looked rather cute. Luckily I like cute too so that was fine with me. The thing is though.. I have blue eyes, and lenses always have a hole in the middle that's large enough for your pupil and a bit of your iris. So when you put black on blue, you'll see the difference. It didn't bother me much, though. But I think these lenses will look better on someone with dark eyes. Despite that, I liked the way the lenses looked on me.
One plus of these lenses is that they didn't hurt me when putting them in, which is rare. Usually lenses irritate my eyes when I put them in and for the first few minutes afterwards, but these didn't. However, they did move around a lot. When I closed my eye to apply eyeshadow, the pressure of the brush made the lens shift, so when I opened my eyes I had to feel the lens shift back in place, which is kind of irritating. These lenses move when you blink and your eyes are dry as well. They don't irritate like regular lenses, they just move a little. So I'm honestly not sure what is more irritable. Either way, I don't recommend wearing them for a full day. For a party or maybe for cosplay it's perfect.
These lenses surprised me in multiple ways, both good and bad. On the plus side, they turned out to be way cuter than I imagined, but on downside, they moved around a lot. I would wear them again for occasions where I'd need black lenses, but I don't think I'll wear them for an entire day again. Would I recommend them? Depends on what you're looking for. Are you looking for black lenses for a party, a cosplay, or just to wear casually? Then yes, I do recommend them, as they are truly black and not somewhat translucent when you wear them. However I do not recommend wearing them a full day and I do think they'd look better on dark eyes. My overall grade is 6.8, which is still very positive!
