Today's post will be on a circle lens! Y'all know how much I love the Neo Glamours - and today's post will be on the Neo Glamour Browns. I like natural looks, so yay brown! Thanks, Eyecandys~
|I got another monkey case! |
(Same picture used in Hazel review, wasn't necessary to take an identical one, y'know?)
Here’s some more information about these lenses!
Name: Glamour Brown
Brand: Neo Vision
Origin: South Korea
Water content: 45%
Base curve: 8.6
Life: 1 year (I do not recommended using any lenses for 3+ months)
Colours available (8): hazel, brown, honey, gray, green, blue, aqua, violet
Price: Currently $29.60 [here]
The design is super pretty, as all Neo Glamours are. They're 3 toned, so the colours blend nicely together and give a natural, pretty look.
This lens does have a pretty unique, interesting design. Instead of having a solid limbal ring like most circle lenses, they have jagged edges! These lines do look a lot more natural than a normal, solid limbal ring would.
These lenses start (outside to in) by a thin, black limbal ring and changes to a warm brown colour, finishing off with a orangey yellow.
The picture below shows me wearing the lenses in different lightings; the first is in flash, then window light, and the last one indoor.
I thought I'd have pictures here comparing the Glamour browns to the Glamour hazels. Before I had either lens, I was debating on getting either the Brown or the Hazel. On the site pictures, it was difficult to tell the difference between the two.
NOTE: I haven't posted the review for the Hazels just yet - it'll be posted next.

I do really, really like this colour - the Glamour browns are pretty. I do think they're a bit too reddish for me. The hazels were super, vampy red; but the browns also have a tinge of red as well. However, I do like these better than the hazels (because they're more natural compared to them).
These lenses have a brown colour up close - but from further away, it really does have a hint of red that you can't miss. As pretty as it is, it's not natural enough for me to wear comfortably in public. Please take a look at the pictures on the bottom to see what I mean. (Again, I think I look like a vampire.)
I'll happily wear these for a specific FOTD or for a post, though! The colour shows up very clearly, which I like! But for real-life wear? Hmm... maybe not.
Also... the comfort level on this particular lens seems to be different from my other Glamours. I have no idea why, but these aren't as comfy as my other ones. I can get maybe 3-4 hours in, before my eyes start feeling really dry. Sadly, this lens doesn't pass the comfort test! T___T
As always, these lenses really aren't meant for enlargement. They offer very little (if any) - so if you're specifically looking for a "big eyed" effect, these won't be a good choice!
= I like the lenses, but they're not as natural or comfortable as I'd like them to be. Sorry, Glamour Browns... but I probably won't be repurchasing you. T__T
Note: I don't give half marks.
Overall rating: ♥♥♥/5
So that's it for today!
What about you?
Do you like the colour of these? Do you like the "vampire" eye colour?
Question: My Korean cosmetic reviews seem to be much popular than my circle lens reviews (though quite a few people still read/comment on lens reviews as well).
But I was just curious - do you guys want me to continue reviewing lenses? Or should I completely stop lens reviews and focus on cosmetics?
(If its decided not to post more lens reviews, I'll just post the remaining lens reviews I have and stop receiving new lenses for review).
