WTF – Circle Lenses

April 28, 2011

Ok, so you’ve asked for it for a while now, and we finally get to play with some Circle Lenses. Woohoo! Usually we’re confused about how to use the product, but these are pretty self-explanatory, if you’re used to using contact lenses, that is. Put them on your eyeball and BOOM! You’re so much cuter than before! They do feel a bit different from other lenses, though: because they’re so much bigger than usual lenses, you can feel them a bit more when you blink, but after a while you get used to them.

These lenses are a staple for the Ulzzang look. We mentioned Ulzzang in the video, but perhaps we didn’t do the concept justice. Take a look at these pics of Ulzzang to get a better idea of what Ulzzang looks like (but Martina kinda pulls off the look, no?). We describe it as having a doll-face, but it literally translates to “best face,” which is kinda unfair, because we’re not really sure that this look is the best look available. It’s cool, yeah, and fun as well, but we couldn’t imagine looking like this all the time.

Otherwise, we wanted to say something about this in relation to the Double Eyelid Tape we reviewed a while ago, but we were worried that it would open up old wounds. It seems like there’s a fascination with eyes in Korea that we’re just not that used to from back home. We’re not opposed to Circle Lenses as we are against eyelid tape and eye surgery, though. Lenses are more playful, it seems, and so we’re cool with them. Sometimes even we go out with the lenses on if we’re feeling playful, but – yeah – only sometimes! So if you see us on the streets and we’ve got these on, make sure you call us Ulzzang :D

Anyhow, thanks big time to Angelic Rain for sending us some Circle Lenses to play with and for sponsoring this contest! Woohoo! To win the contest, all you have to do is tell us who you think would look the creepiest with Circle Lenses on. We said in the video that it’s only for our YouTube subscribers, and that you should only post on our YouTube page, but – nahhh – you can post it here as well :D So feel free to leave your answers in the comments to this page. Huzzah! Also, if you don’t wind up winning the prize, and still want to get some circle lenses, we’ve got a discount code for you: at the checkout, enter the code EYK and you’ll get 10% off your order. Sweet! We chose last week’s winner from this site’s comments, as well, so congrats to CAPS4SAMMEH for winning. Your Twonkle Twonkle rhyme made us laugh the most :D

  1. I don’t understand the fascination with circle lenses. The lengths people go to achieve that kind of “beauty”. Whenever I tell people that circle lenses aren’t that good, they always reply with the whole “regular contacts are bad too!” The thing is regular contacts are prescribed to fit perfectly on the eyes! A professional eye doctor would measure the eye and do all the standard eye…checking process.

  2. Steve Buscemi. That is all I want to write. Can you imagine his weird eyes can be even more… weird? Yeeeeessssssss, I think that would be… weird.

  4. Either Jack Sparrow or Justin Bieber. Two very different celebrities, with equally creepy Ulzzang eyes. Justin Bieber probably more so…

  5. simon and martina, you guys are awesome!

    i was wondering if you all could make an extra page or post along with the winners their winning entry. i want to see what they wrote, like the big bang story for example and the twonkle twonkle rhyme, but it takes a long time to find where their post is. i think it would be sweet if you posted their entry along when you announce the winner. that way we can all laugh along to what you guys laughed too :D

  6. If I ever saw JYP with circle lenses, I’d probably turn on my heels and run away, ngl. And then go back to stare at him in a mix of woah-I-just-saw-an-alien amazement and just utter creeped-out-ness lol :D

  8. It’s so HARD since we can only choose 1 celeb…. And there are plenty of Idols who already look like ulzzangs, what if they wore these lenses and had even bigger doll eyes… ahggg (CREEPY)
    Ok I think I’ve finally made my choice. Imagine Kara’s Goo HARA with lenses, she could look like the kid from the movie The Grudge… ahhhhh!
    <3

      I’m pretty sure Goo Hara already wears circle lenses. Almost all Korean celebs wear circle lenses.

  9. I think the person who would look the creepiest with the Circle Lenses would be definitely be Kristen Stewart. She’d be the creepiest of them all, the Creepy Eyed Lady…not that she isn’t without them but with them on she would be horror!

  11. I’d have to say…. Kang Ho Dong.
    I don’t know, I feel like the ones Simon was wearing made him look kind of… you know, like when a cat is about to attack and his eyes go kind of… wild… (can’t think of a better word)
    And Kang Ho Dong is kind of a beast :D And his irides are small… so more impact!

  14. Simon’s definitely creepier. Martina is super cute, so I actually think she’s rocking the doll-eye look.

    Which celebrity would look creepier with circle lenses? Hmm… it’s a toss-up between Mel Gibson and Song Kang-ho (is that his name? dude from Park Chan-wook’s films). Or maybe Nicholas Cage?

  17. Okay, I love the man but I’ve gotta say it… Michael Jackson. If he were coming at me with circle lenses on, I would run like hell, not even gonna lie. The scariest thing is he loves sunglasses so you wouldn’t even know… Like you’re just chatting with him, all “hey, I love your songs, man…” and then he takes off his glasses and BAM!!! he’s just staring at you like O___O and Thriller comes on and you faint on the spot and the zombies eat you. ;-; It’s all a trap to lure unwary fans in… >.>

    …Or maybe that’s just me.

  18. Ooooh and by the way, the circle lense are pretty popular in Montreal city too (Canada ). Is can of scary at first when people stare at you with those think. But in the end it began to be a normal think. Everyone wears it asian, black and white people, latinos everyone…. And it has place where they sell it you do not need to command it by the net… Yeah for Montreal and creepy eyes^^

  22. All right!! I’m just gonna write in here (I’m too lazy to open another window/tab).

    Anyway, who do I think would look the creepiest? Without doubts…………………….. Park Jin-young (a.k.a JYP O.O).

    Can you imagine him in the Itaewon Freedom MV??? I did, and it was uuuushhh C-R-E-E-P-Y (Him without glasses and with really big eyes xDDDDD making that pose which Simon did LOL).

  26. this is at once creepy and cute. i think taeyang would look weird b/c his eyes are so small, so if he wore the black circle lenses, you probably wouldn’t be able to see the white part of his eyes.

  35. creepiest? with circle lenses? I think Daesung or Taeyang of Big Bang. LOL. But since someone already answered that. RAIN would look not only creepy but weird too.

  36. circle lenses are… scary… it makes the eyes appear bigger so it’s reallly freaky. stumbled on a YT video of a chinese program where girls had to wear cricle lenses in one eye, and do makeup on that one side of theiir faces, and the differencesi were so astounding, they looked like aliens. makes them completely different from their original look. *shudders*

    hmmn… i guess. taeyang. or daesung. their eyes’ are really small, i wonder how they will look like with bigger ones.
