Contact Lens Review – Colorvue Blue Glow (iGlow) from crazylenses.com

Hey everyone!  I have another lens review today, this time for a pair of glow lenses I was really excited to try.  These have been kindly sponsored by Crazylenses!

Brand: Colorvue

Opacity/Color: 9/10
These lenses definitely made a huge impact!  They are very light and bright blue.  They cover my eye color completely, and lend themselves to a very creepy/crazed appearance.  These would get a perfect score in the color department, but they did not glow quite the way I was anticipating.  I tested these under a black light, and they became pure white, instead of glowing a cool blue color like I was hoping.  While I’m disappointed the glow effect wasn’t quite there, these lenses are still nice, color-wise, on their own.

I would recommend these lenses if you are going for a shocking or special effects/unhuman kind of look.  These would not be the best for styles like Lolita or Ulzzang, since they are such a drastic block of opaque color.

Enlargement: N/A
No enlargement since these are 14mm standard diameter lenses. These will not make you supah uguuu like circle lenses.

Comfort: 8/10
These felt very similar to the Emerald Green lenses I reviewed recently.  They feel thick, which makes sense since they are so opaque.  Also, I noticed a hazy halo around my vision, since the pupil hole is like, right there bordering the pupil. After adjusting (about 5 minutes) they weren’t as noticeable, but they still felt a bit thicker and not as comfortable as some lenses I’ve tried.

Design/Overall Appearance: 7/10
Again, not a bad pair of lenses, but I was a bit disappointed they didn’t glow this nice vibrant blue color like I was fantasizing about. XD Taking the glowing thing out of consideration, they still have a really striking impact.  Also, I wouldn’t take my black light as the end-all-be-all.  They might glow differently under different UV lighting/conditions, maybe?  I dunno.  You can see my little black light test of them, to see how they glowed, both in the pictures below, and in the video at the bottom of this page.
