[Apple Of Your Eyes] Kimchi Mio Brown

Hi everyone, hope you are having a wonderful day! I'm on a roll with lenses reviews. Nah, actually the rate where I churn reviews out is slower than a moving snail... I think I received this particular pair early September, so a huge thank you to my sponsor Apple Of Your Eyes for being so patient!




Name: Kimchi Mio Brown
Price: US$ 25 for 1 pair
Base curve: 8.6 mm
Diameter: 16 mm
Water content: 55%
Prescription: 0.00 to -8.50
Life span: 1 year disposal

Mio's design is heavily influenced by Mimi Cafe Macchiato. The swirls and the dots a part of Macchiato's charm and I am glad to see them in Mio. My only concern is the reddish brown swirls, they stand out too much and not in a good way.

They are by far, the hardest pair of lenses that I have ever had the chance of inserting into my eyes. The lenses are very soft and they have a high water content of 55% which ups the comfort level but decreases the convenience factor. That being said, I managed to insert them without any trouble, just that I take longer to pop them in compared to other lenses.

Overall rating:
Design and colour ★★★☆☆☆☆
Enlargement ★★★★★★☆
Comfort ★★★★★★☆

Hi Blair, the design looks like it would be super dramatic but these actually look quite natural on you. Holy crap 16mm is huge but good to hear it's still comfortable. Great review.

shinyprettythings said...

wow really cool effect these lenses give!!! ahhhh why your eyes so freaking pretty?!? 

chiihime said...

I really wanna see you wearing Barbie King Size brown! I agree, this is also one of my favorite designs. The color intensity is so nice and can't be compared to other brand. I would buy in other colors but now I bought GEO lenses and just realized they are much more comfortable, since first time I put them on it's like I had anything in my eyes! When I wear my Barbie lenses its so uncomfortable, like I had sand in my eyes for the first 2 or 3 hours, sometimes my vision is very blurred. So maybe next time I'll buy Super Size Angel brown which is very similar!>< What do you think? Is Barbie brand less comfortable for you too? Maybe I got a defective exemplar?

Blair said...

Hi chiihime, I've not tried the Barbie nor the Geo Medical version of the King Size in brown lenses, mine are from EOS. I've worn and reviewed them in these posts:http://bijinblair.blogspot.com/2011/05/raspberry-kiss.html

Hello Jennifer,

This P&J palette is limited edition but it was released fairly recently, so it's still available at P&J counters and various e-tailers.
