{Review} Klenspop - Maxlook SCL 23 C-Brown & SCL Edge Gray Circle Lenses

When it comes to circle lenses, what do you prefer: natural or dramatic? My latest package of circle lenses from Klenspop had two pairs of lenses: the cute-and-natural Maxlook SCL 23 C-Brown lenses and the intensely-dramatic Maxlook SCL Edge Gray lenses. Both lenses are part of Klenspop's new silicone hydrogel lens selection, which features quality lenses with unbelievable comfort. So, how do these lenses compare? Read on for the details!

I'm back again with another review of circle lenses from Klenspop, a super cute online lens store with tons of stylish and affordable lenses. This time, I received two of their slightly pricier circle lenses: the Maxlook SCL 23 C-Brown lenses ($33) and the Maxlook SCL Edge Gray lenses ($30).

The reason that these lenses cost more than regular lenses from Klenspop is that they are silicone hydrogel lenses, which make them extremely soft and flexible. They also allow more oxygen to pass through, block UV rays, and stay hydrated longer, so that you can wear them for longer times and with more comfort.

As always, the lenses came with Klenspop's adorable packaging, and each pair of circle lenses was packed into a cute illustrated box with a free lens case and a pair of tweezers. This package also came with a guide on how to use and care for your lenses.

I'm always impressed by Klenspop's packaging because it's both cute and helpful. Shipping was also unbelievably fast this time; my lenses arrived within a week!

So, first up are the Maxlook SCL 23 C-Brown lenses:

Korean makeup, particularly the ulzzang style, emphasizes natural, simple looks, and Klenspop's Maxlook SCL 23 C-Brown lenses give your eyes that same kind of cute effect.
Silicone hydrogel lenses are much more comfortable than regular circle lenses, and Klenspop sells a wide variety of them, like these SCL 23 C-Brown lenses.

The SCL 23 C-Brown lenses have a subtle light brown pattern and soft edge, which give them a very natural appearance. The color is just a bit lighter than my regular eyes, so they blend in quite well.

The Review


Comfort: 6/5
♥♥♥♥♥♥
These Maxlook SCL 23 C-Brown lenses are crazy comfortable. I completely forgot that I was even wearing them! Being silicone hydrogel lenses, these are definitely more comfortable than regular circle lenses.

Enlargement: 4/5
♥♥♥♥♡
These lenses have a natural-looking enlargement rather than a super dolly-eyed effect, so it really depends on what kind of lenses you're looking for. These are cute but not overpowering, and are great for everyday, casual looks.

Color & Design: 4/5
♥♥♥♥♡
The color is a very natural brown, and the pattern is also simple and natural. These look so natural that people can hardly tell that you're wearing circle lenses! Personally, though, I would've loved to see a more interesting pattern.

Overall: 4/5
♥♥♥♥♡
The Maxlook SCL 23 C-Brown lenses are probably the best lenses for an everyday look out of the ones that I've owned so far. The design isn't super special, but the lenses blend really well with my natural eyes, give off a cute, subtle enlargement, and feel ridiculously comfortable!

Next up: the Maxlook SCL Edge Gray lenses from Klenspop, also silicone hydrogel lenses:

Whereas the SCL 23 C-Brown circle lenses were all about the natural look, the SCL Edge Gray lenses have a very unique pattern with a thick, dark outer ring. Here are some photos of what these lenses look like when worn:

The gray part of these lenses comes out being rather dark on my eyes, which is true to the photos on Klenspop's site. These images show what the lenses look like in brighter lighting; the color is darker in dim lighting.

The Review


Comfort: 6/5
♥♥♥♥♥♥
Just like the brown lenses, the Maxlook SCL Edge Gray circle lenses are very soft and comfortable. Klenspop has impressed me with their silicone hydrogel lenses, because they're simply so comfortable.

Enlargement: 5/5
♥♥♥♥♥
These lenses are the same diameter as the SCL 23 C-Brown ones, but the intense, dark limbal ring give it a much more effective enlargement. If you want to make your eyes look significantly large, these are great! Of course, they're also pretty noticeable, so I'd recommend wearing them with heavier makeup to balance out the look.

Color & Design: 4/5
♥♥♥♥♡
The color looks great in bright light but almost black when it's not as bright; perhaps these might look better on someone with lighter eyes. The design, however, is my favorite part about these lenses! They have a really cool swirling pattern with dark edges and a blending effect in the center.

Overall: 5/5
♥♥♥♥♥
The SCL Edge Gray circle lenses are super comfortable and enlarging. The pattern and design is interesting and one-of-a-kind. For me, I would've loved these even more if the gray was a lighter, icier gray.


Overall Experience

I had another great experience with Klenspop, and both the Maxlook SCL 23 C-Brown lenses and the Maxlook SCL Edge Gray lenses proved to be well worth the price. The packaging is as cute as always, and the delivery was fast. I'd say that the SCL 23 C-Brown are perfect for those who want a natural look with subtle enlargement, and the SCL Edge Gray are great for anyone who wishes for a more intense, dolly effect. I'm also now a huge fan of silicone hydrogel lenses, and I really do think that they're worth the higher price for the comfort. Thank you to Klenspop for these lovely lenses!
