Beaucon Jewels in Brown  
Photobucket
Beaucon Jewels: Brown
Diameter: 14.0
Longevity: 1 year
Power: 0.00 to 10.00

From Charlene's Shop.

One thing to pay attention to when comparing the enlargement properties of lenses is not the diameter of the lens, but how far out the ink extends to the edge. If you were to compare the Geo Tricolor series to the Geo Nudy series, you'd see a huge difference (literally!).

Both are 14.0mm in diameter, but the ink on the Nudys is printed further out. If you look at the edge of your lenses, see how much clear space is left after the design ends.

Enlargement: Uh... not so much. They just cover my irises. The reason I mention "clear space" above is because these have about as much left as the Geo Tricolor series. If you have smaller irises and you're not a fan of the halo effect, I suggest these. It's not a problem for me, but if size if a big issue for you, you may want to keep this in mind.

Design: I love this look. *u* The black outer circle is very thick (thicker than the Geo Angel series). The color graduates into the clear center without any other embellishments.

Color: It's pretty vibrant for brown lenses... I'd say it looks like a bright honey-gold in bright lights (as seen in the pictures with flash) and and maintains the the golden hue even in darker lighting.

Feel: I can't seem to figure out why, but these feel bigger when I put them in. Other than that, they feel like... contacts. They adhere quickly, and I found it easy to squeeze the air bubbles out.

Overall: I love the design and the intensity of the color; because of these properties they don't have a very natural aesthetic. The thick black ring shocked me a little at first, but I'm in love with it now.

Charlene's Shop gives you a free lens case with every pair purchased.

It should be noted that Beaucon is a Japanese brand, unlike the more popular brands like GEO and Dueba.

There's one thing I should mention, though... and it's actually one of those common-sense-duh type things: When you take your new lenses out of the jar (this applies to all lenses), rinse them off with your own solution. Better yet, let them soak for a while in it. This is pure speculation, but I think that once the eye becomes accustomed to a particular formula of contact solution other formulas may irritate the eye. When I put these in, I was too excited to even think about what they were stewing in, but once they were in my eyes started to feel pretty uncomfortable. They didn't burn or itch, it just felt like the solution didn't agree with my eyes.

Those look amazing! Extremely pretty!

I work for an eye doctor and the stuff it's soaking in is saline solution but with all brands and companies, they each have their own formula. I too suggest rinsing them off with your own solution so as not to irritate sensitive eyes. XDD
