I love their design. Really. I have wanted a pair of gold lenses for so long and these really are gold. I love the thin sort of black limbal ring. The design of these lenses sort of remind me of the Vassen Vivian 3 tone series.I don't normally go for brown lenses but the common trait that each of the lenses in the LuxuryBabe 12 series has is the streaks of yellow. While in my opinion that sort of looks weird on some of the other colors in this series I think that trait looks absolutely gorgeous with the brown. These lenses aren't really brown though. But I like my brown lenses to be more yellow/gold than brown so these are really quite perfect for me.
The comfort for these is so lovely. These lenses are by Belmore and Belmore also makes Fynale lenses. These lenses are as incredibly thin as my Fynale Honoo greens(review: here) and the water content is nearly the same. I wore them for about 9 hours today. They started to get dry towards the end and I probably could've worn them for longer if eye drops were applied but I decided to just take them out.
These lenses say they are 16mm or whatever but they really aren't. I feel like Belmore INC makes smaller circle lenses. And that is really fine by me because I bought them for their design. They do enlarge, but the enlargement is more like a 14.5mm lens. These even give me a little baby halo effect.
I just love these. In my opinion they are lovely and vampy. The color is not really natural at all so if you were looking for a brown lens I wouldn't recommend these. They are goldish yellow.I love their goldish yellowishness though. I think its SPLENDID.
So these are the lenses that I am going to review and to be honest, they are fantastic. I did a photo shoot afterwards because I just wanted to and didn't see the point glamming myself up and not taking pictures so let's get on with the review!!
Colour/Design = 9/10!
Yes, the colour is absolutely lovely. From the name of the lens, it has a three tone effect with the inner circle being a light brown which then blends into a light grey and then into a darker grey on the rim of the lenses. That sort of effect is absolutely beautiful because they make your eyes look so sweet and calm and almost innocent in a way!
I also think that the type of grey is different than that of the Sesame Grey. I'm not sure why but these feel more softer and give your face a soft gleam to it.
Enlargement = 8/10!
Yes, the enlargement is not as much as I had wanted them to be, but because they are a diameter of around 14-14.2mm, it's to be expected. Also, because of the fact that it doesn't have a dark ring around the outer edges, it's why it does not have such a big enlargening effect. I'm not that bothered by it because the design just kicks ass xD but I would have liked just a little more enlargement. These are perfect if you want your eyes to look really natural and even though they're circle lenses, they really don't look like them at all :3 That can be a good or bad thing depending on what type of lens you're going for :)
Because these are really natural, the type of make-up that would go with it is subtle, definitely not the dramatic make-up like Hime-gyaru and Rokku because it will overpower the lenses. Oneegyaru is absolutely fine for these!
Comfort = 8.5/10!
The reason why I gave it this rating is because it's not like my other lenses. These dry out my eyes after 2-3 hours; I think that if youure going to buy these lenses, you should only if you know that you're going to be wearing them for a short period of time, but my eyes would be completely different to yours so if you want to test them out longer than 3 hours, I strongly recommend doing it!!
Overall, these lenses are amazing and the most natural pair that I currently own. The way that it completely changes the face just from the colour is impeccable and if I didn't want to scare someone with Gyaru, then I would wear these. They make you look fresh and most of all, they enhance your beauty tenfold!!
Yes, it is safe to wear. We sell only genuine lenses. You are advised to not wear the lenses for more than 8 hours. Change your lens case in every 3 months. The important issue is the HYGIENE. I've been wearing circle lenses since 2008. Read here about my personal experience with circle lenses. If you are still worry about the authenticity of the lenses, email me and I will send you certificates that our partners/main suppliers received from the Korea companies.

Candy Vassen, which is in pink cap, is manufactured by Vassen co. The company is a brotherhood company with Sunnbon ( manufacturer of I.Fairy) Candy Vassen is cheaper than I.fairy because Candy is using its own labelling, known as OEM
3. What is the different between S.Barbie and Candy Dueba?
Most of the Super Barbie and Candy lenses are having same design. It is because both are imported from same company, Dueba. Dueba lenses are retailed under the purchasing company's brand name which are the Candy and Super Barbie. And this is knows as OEM, original equipment manufacturer. Check it out on wiki here

4. How long is the life span of the lenses?
They are yearly disposal. However, for hygiene purposes, we advise buyers to wear them for 6-9 months provided you have to soak them with protein removal tablet once in every 3 months. Change your lens cases every 3 months.
5. Will I look unnatural after wearing the black lenses?
Condition 1: If you naturally have small iris and the white part of your eyes > the iris, black lens will definitely look very natural on your eyes. As black lens are more subtle, even without make-up, they will look natural on you.
Condition 2: If you have very little white part of your eyes, black lenses will look unnatural. Black lenses with smaller diameter, 14.0mm which is GEO lens only, are recommend for you.
If you are still new to circle lenses, please wear those 14.0mm lenses before try on bigger diameter.

No, you can't. Colour contact lenses are for myopia only. Astigmatism of -2.00 and above are strongly advised not to wear ordinary colour lenses rather than toric lenses.

9. Do we sell EOS lenses?
Yes, however, they are all in new series - under the Dolly Eye packaging. You may find the code on the EOS official website.
*Most of the Vassen lenses are similar to I.fairy mainly because the manufacturer of I.fairy, Sunnbon are brotherhood company.
10. Which lenses are in blister packaging?
They are available in TWO different packaging - vial and blister. Only for restock and new arrival of Luxurybabe lenses are in blister packaging. The partner had concerned about the safety of lenses when they are ship from Korea/ ship to your home. Space in blister packaging is quite small and it is full of saline solution. Unlike the vial packaging where the saline solution was only filled up half the vials. Sometimes - during transit/delivery to your place- the lens might stuck at the bottom or at the top of the vial and dry off.
Fynale 148 is using the blister packaging as well. Other series remains in vial packaging
c) Disney Lens (OEM of GEO/Dueba/ GNG)
All new batch from April 27, 2013 came in blister packaging with the disney lens label
