Product Review: Bausche & Lomb's Naturelle Circle Lense

Hello!

One thing I definitely wanted to try while I was in Korea was circle lenses. I've seen lots of girls where them in the states, but I wasn't too keen on purchasing them online without trying them on first. I wanted to find a pair that enhanced my eyes, so I wasn't looking for different colors like grey, purple, etc. I just wanted something subtle and not too noticeable.

I went to an eye doctor nearby and was given 2 different brands to try out- Bausche & Lomb's "Naturelle" and Acuvue's "Define". The first one I tried was the Bausche & Lombe's. I was immediately drawn to this because of the commercial and model (so pretty! haha). Also, it looked the most "subtle" of the examples that were in his office.

Here are pictures of the product- again, these were samples that the eye doctor gave me after showing him my prescription. He only gave me one pair of each to try so that I could decide if I wanted to buy them or not.



I'm not wearing any makeup in the following pictures, because it was so hot and muggy! I was going makeup-free for a while.. :P Also, my eyes are not dark dark brown- they're a bit lighter than some of my friends, so that part is natural.

These are my eyes without the circle lenses.
These are pictures of me with them on. Sorry I didn't get a real close-up of my eyes, but you can see a subtle black line around the iris.




Tried to get a closer picture of the black line around my iris.


Pros:
- The price for 2 boxes (I have a different prescription for each eye) is approximately $45 USD, which isn't bad.
- From afar, it gives a subtle "circle" around your iris, so it accomplishes its name- being "naturelle".

Cons:
- They are daily contacts, so I'd only wear these on special occasions. Too bad I can't drag these out longer.
- Although I liked how natural-looking it was, no one else realized any difference between my wearing these and not wearing them at all. *sob.
- Looking up close, the circle is made up off lots of little dots rather than a solid line or rim, so I see the dots around my iris which looked a bit weird.. but this is if you were looking super close.

Overall:
I was set on buying these lenses, but after hearing my family say they saw no difference and the little dots that made up the circle, I decided against it.

Thanks for reading!
