KLENSPOP Pinky Grey

6.26.2015


(Sorry, this FOTD is out of focus. But I like it, so)


I will tell you right here. I would have never picked up KLENSPOP Pinky Grey for myself. They are bigger (although not huge) in diameter than the ones I usually reach for, and the designs are on the artificial and more dramatic side.
Apparently the blogging gods wanted me to try them anyway because I was sent these by KLENSPOP recently. Then I fell in love with them. Totally unintended.



This time the shipping was even faster taking only 7 days to arrive. Again, everything was packaged impeccably.


KLENSPOP Pinky Grey
Brand: MAXLOOK
Diameter: 14.3mm
Graphic Diameter: 14mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.8mm
Life Span: 1 year (Max)
Country of origin: South Korea


The outer rims are more of a dark purple, and the inner patterns are very delicate and complex to say the least. I am not into "noticeable" designs like these any more, but I find the gold/khaki flecks and strokes are so gorgeous nonetheless.


Stunning, isn't it?
(Yes, I am a Star Wars fan.)


Turns out I don't really need to amp up my eye makeup with Pinky Grey.
Here I just put on grey kajal on my lid space and blended it out with some shimmery pale gold pigment followed by mascara. Easy peasy.



Pinky Grey is actually made of a new material called "silicone hydrogel". It is a hybrid of hard contacts and soft contacts that supposedly is so much better for the eyes. It retains water more efficiently and lets oxygen penetrate better. Plus it provides the UV protection. (I found this article on the web, FYI.)
I didn't know what to expect but they just feel like soft contacts to me, but the comfort level is simply... OUT OF THIS WORLD.

Really, it isn't like anything I've experienced. I also ordered some daily contacts from KLESNPOP this time, and to my surprise, Pinky Grey feels even more comfortable than my dailies. Can you imagine? The price (about twice of regular soft circle/color lenses') is well worth it if you ask me. I am so impressed with the comfort level (to the point where I forget I'm wearing them) that I plan to upgrade all my lenses to silicone hydrogel in the near future.


Maybe we are meant to have irises like these on this earth. I mean, sometimes. ;)

    1. You should! They enable you to try a lot more different looks. I'm sure you'd be interested since you're a makeup artist.

      BTW, can I ask you not to include a link in comments next time? I know that you are not one of those people, but it is just a house rule I have here. Thanks. :)

  2. SO pretty! And more comfy than your dailies! Marky want to try circle lenses so I'm going to get her to read this post for sure.

    1. Thank you, Tracy!
      Marky should try a small pack of dailies first then move on to something like these, I think. Dailies are very very comfortable compared to yearly ones. It's just that these silicone hydrogel is really amazing. Once she finds a design she's into, then these would be great investments. :)

  3. I always wanted to try coloured contacts but kind of scared! The lenses are really pretty looking and astro- looking!

    1. Hey Wheetnee, ;)
      There are many different subtle designs in brown/dark brown/black colors, but if you want realistic looking ones that transforms the iris color, maybe you'd want to try something like Freshlook one day. They are very thin and comfortable.

      And can I ask you not to include a link in the comment next time? I feel torn because your comment is genuine and I've known you and read your blog for a while, but I'm trying to enforce a small house rule of mine here. Thanks. :)

  4. These look beautiful, they have an interesting cartoon/ fantasy flair.

    1. They have really lovely designs indeed. I don't think I was ever into cartoon-y designs like this, but they are so attractive that I can't help it. ;)

  5. I love this! It looks mystical up close, but still natural from afar :-)

    1. That was what I thought! I've asked close friends (who are usually brutally honest with me) and they say it's not really noticeable. I enjoy the effect! :)

    1. Thanks! I guess it is great to have a pair like this. :)

  7. wow they are so pretty yet still natural.. I am not a fan of those huge doll eyes contact lenses because they look ridiculous xD
    I don't and can't wear contact lenses due to my dry and sensitive eyes.. :/

    1. Exactly, Pam! When I first started wearing them I didn't know which ones would suit me so I went through enough mishap ended up looking ridiculous! These are really well-made both in design and functional aspects! :)

  8. Oh wow! I wouldn't have even noticed the difference! I actually started scrolling down and expecting to comment on a new lipstick colour (The pink threw me off!) only to go back up and realized that it was about the contact lens ;-) The colour suits you very well and looks very natural on you!

    1. Thank you, Stephanie!
      The lip color is Lancome Shine Lover Fuchsia In Paris if I remember it correctly. I'm working on a swatch post since I received a decent sample pack. :)

    1. I love that gold sparkles, too.
      It would be interesting to see them on your eyes. :)

  10. These are gorgeous! Even though they are large, they somehow work, I think! I've never tried colored lenses or circle lenses. Someday I want to try a pair of purple ones, just for kicks.

    1. Exactly my sentiment. I didn't really expect to like them this much. Sometimes I just wear them without putting on any makeup just because they are so comfortable. LOL.

  11. These look good but can we talk about the new Star Wars teaser instead? I'm a SW nerd and I think JJ Abrams is going to make me cry in the theatre.

    1. Absolutely! I was dragged by a dear friend to a theater when Star Wars were repromoted back then in Korea. He (who now works for NASA) even said he would revoke our friendship if I didn't go! LOL. But one of the best things that ever happened to me. I, too, have great expectations for the new one!!

  12. Oh that looks pretty (and so does the lipstick). Can you beleive that I wear glasses when I remember (I'm short sighted) yet I've never ever worn contacts in my life. My eyes get dry and irritated really easily so I'm scared that contacts will just make them worse... But with all this new technology now, maybe one day I should try to be brave enough to give it a try!

    1. Thank you!
      Eye glasses are the best for the eyes, really. But as you said, the contact lenses have come far, I think. If not color/circle contacts like these, there are conventional ones made with silicone hydrogel (there are many different kinds, too). Just in case you're inclined to try some soon. :)

  13. Softer than daily contacts?! Wow, that's high praise! I wonder if they makes these for asigmatism! I'm saving up for a LASIK because I am so tired of wearing contacts/glasses. Pinky Grey looks really neat and fun! You are the queen of circle lens. :D You should do a comparison post!

    1. They are slightly thicker but squishier if that makes any sense. I just love how comfortable they are. I have astigmatism but these work just fine for me, too. But I believe they offer toric lenses as well. Do look into them. KLENSPOP is the best site I've tried so far (not because they sent these to me for free. LOL. I've tried a lot, you know. ;p)
