KLENSPOP | Sio 3 Color Lizzy Blue




KLENSPOP kindly provided a couple more silicone hydrogel contacts for review. Now I am totally hooked on contact lenses made of silicone hydrogel (I find this article to be a good guide) and can't imagine wearing anything else. The difference in comfort level is so huge that I even switched to clear daily contacts made of the same material. They are not super thin but have this squishy feel to them, so they don't move around too much (read less halo effect). Your mileage would vary, but they definitely feel way more comfortable than non-silicone-hydrogel (or just hydrogel) lenses and stay moist all day from what I've experienced so far.

Sio 3 Color Lizzy Blue is an interesting pair. If you are looking to transform your dark eyes into bright blue, this may not be for you. If you prefer deeper blue colors and want to add a bit of a mystery, do check this out.




Sio 3 Color Lizzy Blue
Diameter : 14.2mm
Graphic Diameter : 13.6mm
BC : 8.7mm
Using Period : 6 months
Water Content : 45%
Manufacturer : Belmore
Origin : Korea


When I saw the stock photos, I suspected these would be medium blue colored contacts. Well, they looked quite blue to me from the website. Sio 3 Color Lizzy Blue consists of navy blue, violet, and purple. All together, it is more of a blurple that reminds me of blueberries. I like that three colors are well mixed in the delicate dots and strokes.

Trying to take close-up pictures, I became understand why they looked obviously blue on the product page. No matter what kind of lighting I used, the blurple color pronounces. This is probably because the pigment is on the dense side although the color contrast on dark eyes is quite low.

But still, none of them really represents how Sio 3 Color Lizzy Blue looks in real life. It is frustrating because I attempted many times to capture it, but I hope you can understand what I mean from the following overall look.



Yup, they look natural and perfectly fine to wear to work (or anywhere really). 
Indoors, they make my eye colors even deeper and more defined only occasionally flashing a hint of blue which will make other people wonder. And I think the subtle color contrast between deep blue and dark brown eyes is rather beautiful. 
For some reason, my skin looks brighter and clearer when I wear them. I've tried quite a few makeup pairings, and they look best with minimal eye makeup, which is another interesting and unexpected effect I really enjoy!

The only thing I am not so crazy about is that the outer rims are too perfectly round. I guess this would be actually a plus if you are going for a dolly look, but I personally prefer contacts with softer definitions.

    1. These would have a totally different effect on your blue eyes. I imagine they will add dark definitions around the irises and add some more blue inside. But let me tell you this isn't a scary kind at all. No guts required. ;)

  2. Lol, giggling at "(Below you will see a bunch of eyeballs. I am not afraid of them because they are my eyeballs, but I still feel that I need to warn you.)." Killing me, Lena, lol.

    I always want to try colored ones (especially violet, which I think I've said before!) but I had eye surgery in the past and it's hard for me to find contacts that don't irritate the scar tissue, etc., so I stick with boring prescription clear ones. I'll make up for it with hair changes, I guess :P

    1. Hehe, I don't like seeing feet so it is perfectly plausible that there are people who feel the same about eyeballs. I don't know. ;p
      I've seen a really cool violet 3-color design on KLensPop, but it's not silicone hydrogel. Actually, nowadays, the graphic (prints) is sandwiched with smooth clear hydrogel, so I don't think it will aggravate the scar tissue. My guess is that you can certainly wear color contacts if you can wear clear ones, but I totally understand why you want to be more careful with this kind of stuff.
      If you have any question, let me know! :)

  3. This color looks really striking on you Lena and the effect definitely has enough of an impact on it's own that you don't need much eye makeup to go along with it.

    1. Yeah, I usually amp up my makeup to make these contacts with more definition and opaque colors, but surprisingly not this one! Some eyeliner and mascara actually work perfectly well for them. I've been wearing them on my "minimal makeup days". :)

  4. Wow, that's a cool blue! That makes makeup a lot more interesting as you noted. I would try but sort of don't want to bother either. I'll just admire you instead. ;)

    1. I've been wearing black and brown contacts a lot, but if I'm going for some colors, I always go for blue. Lizzy Blue actually works like a black pair with twist if you will since it just looks black indoors. I know many would complain about that, but not me. ;)

  5. Love this! This darker shade of blue is actually much more wearable

    1. LOL Thank you!
      I knew that those eyeballs would suggest that. They are quite subtle in real life, which I was emphasizing in my post. ;)

  8. Thank you for photographing them in the different lightings. They look different in each one, but very nice x

    1. My pleasure, Coco! They are quite subtle and nice in real life, which is different from many other blue contacts. If you wear contacts, do give these silicone hydrogel lenses a try. You won't regret! ;)
