Hana SPC (Vassen) Natural Grey Circle Lens Review

in attempted natural light
Helloo! Hope you guys are doing well! Today I'm gonna do a review on the Hana SPC (or Vassen) Natural Grey Circle lenses. LOVE these contacts! Let's find out why [:

As I have mentioned in previous circle lenses posts, there are a bunch of different kinds of circle lenses ~shapes, colors, designs, enlargement~ that can get a little bit overwhelming if you want to get circle lenses but have no idea what you want.

I have also mentioned this before, but it is very important to know that not everybody's eyes can work with circles lenses because the material used and the way the circle lenses are made is a bit limited. If you have an allergic reaction to some contacts, be cautious and do the research to find out if the circle lenses you want are safe for you. I had a post talking more about the basics of circle lenses if you're just starting to look into them as an alternative to regular contacts or if you want to spice up your normal eyes for fun ~ check out the post here!

Onto the review!

The design/color is..natural as the name kind of gives it away. The color blends into my dark brown eyes pretty nicely. It's a very subtle and simple kind of design. The limbal ring of the circle lens ~the dark area around the color part of your eyes~ isn't a solid color, it's like a fuzzy darker grey ring, which makes the blending of that and your eye color a little bit smoother. Besides that darker grey ring, there's also two lighter grey rings going in towards the center. The color on the contacts is only around the edge/limbal ring area ~about 1/4th of the way in~ and the rest of the circle lens is clear.

The enlargement is exactly what I want in my circle lenses. I don't prefer huge, drastic enlarging contacts. The whole big eyed, crazy dolly eyed kind of look is not something I would wear on a regular basis, and not something I can pull off *tear* These contacts still give a dolly eyed effect, but it's a very nice and subtle dolly eyed look. Because of the subtle enlargement, I can wear these every day, on any occasion ~casual or fancy~ and they still look nice without makeup.

The comfort of these lens are absolutely perfect. I think this is one of my top, if not, my #1 most comfortable circle lenses thus far. I haven't review many circle lenses so far, but I have been wearing them for around 4-5 years now. These circle lenses in particular, I wore the entire year, almost every day, and they are still as comfortable as they were in the beginning. These lenses don't dry my eyes out as much as other circle lenses by the end of the day, and they don't irritate my eyes.  They are so comfortable on, and I've never had problems with them. A+ for comfort!

Shipping and Site Info:

I purchased these lenses from my favorite circle lenses sites: pinkyparadise ~direct link to circle lenses here~ for $25.90. It took my order not even a week and a half to be delivered. It is $5 for shipping for the first item (14-25 business days), any additional item will have $1.50 added. Handling fee is $1 per order.

For every purchase of circle lens, you get a free cute animal lens case. If you have so many of them, or if you don't feel like the animal case, they also have the V Case ~link here~ and Macaron lens case ~link here~ available. You just have to write in the note section what case you want and what color when you order. 
*insert non-serious facey with circle lenses here*

Overall, these circle lenses are one of my absolute favorites. If you are just trying out circle lenses, or if you're looking for every day kind of lenses but still want a bit of color and enlargement, definitely give these ones a try. They look nice up close and far away, and if you decide to stare at someone with these lenses on, it's not as scary *bwhaha* as other circle lenses because the design and the enlargement is subtle. 

Final Rating:

Design: 10/10
Enlargement: 3/10 (but it's exactly what I wanted!)
Comfort: 10/10
Overall: 10/10

I love these contacts, I have absolutely nothing bad to say about them. If I were to have one pair of circle lenses for the rest of my life, it would be this pair. It's flattering on and even though it's natural, it makes your eyes stand out subtly and beautifully.

Hope you enjoy the review, have a wonderful weekend!
