Lens Review: Hana SPC Barbie Circle Black

Hello all.

July has entered and there is still time to enjoy the summer but since the weather is a bit chilly today up here, I thought it would be a good opportunity to relax at home and write the last lens review out of the May batch. The earlier lenses that I've reviewed can be found here and here but this time, I will review an entirely new color that I haven't reviewed before. Let's get this started so say hello to the Hana SPC Barbie Circle Black lenses. Oh and before I forget, these lenses seemingly also go under the name of Hyper Circle Black Lens No.1 at LensVillage but they are still manufactured by the same Hana SPC brand.

Up to this day I am still surprised that I ended up buying a pair of black lenses, a color I never thought I would end up putting in my online shopping cart. But I did and while I lost interest to cosplay the character I originally bought these blackies for, I still decided to review them instead of selling them away. Yes, I am currently selling some of my unopened lenses and if you're curious to see what's up for grabs, then scroll down to the end of this post to see how to contact me. Now back to the review, shall we? :')

Lenses in their vials.

The batch of photos below are taken during a warm, sunny day in May with clear skies while being at bro's apartment. I still can't recall at what hour of the day these photos were taken but I know it to be around either noon or afternoon. Anyway, this is what the lenses look like when worn by a person with naturally green-ish gray eyes.

Black is an interesting and unusual lens color so of course I planned my "outfit of the day" accordingly. I wanted to go for something that would be cute yet, in a way, scary so I reached out with my hand towards the dark corners of my wardrobe and this is what I grabbed and pulled out:

Lens review:

Color: 8/10
A black color that shows well but is also soft at the same time. A great choice for those who want a soft but not too creepy/intensively black lens for their costume-y needs.
Comfort: 9/10
This one is on par with the most comfortable lenses I've reviewed so far. Another one of those that I didn't feel at all in my eyes and I can't help but love these lenses whenever they show up. Superb is the word here.
Design: 7/10
A simple design with a soft shade of black blending towards the wearer's natural eye color. The more I look at these, the more I like them.
Enlargement: 6/10
It's noticeable, at least if you have small eyes. Thankfully these doesn't go all creepy pasta edition on my eyes. Phew.
Naturalness: 4/10
When it comes to natural eye colors, black is clearly off the charts along with other colors such as red and gold. Despite this, these get some "Hey I can look natural too!" points for having such a soft shade of black that, hopefully, won't make the stranger next to you turn his head too many times to face you.
Opacity: 8/10
The opacity and coverage in these are great and took me by surprise! They definitely get the job done if you want a black lens with a softer tone to it. But if are looking for something with a more intensive color, then you might want to keep on looking as these might be too light for you.


Those of you who are interested to see what lenses I'm currently selling can reach out and contact me at Keep in mind that I will list prices only in Swedish crowns (SEK) and euros (€) but I do send items worldwide and accept payment through PayPal, as long as the buyer shoulders the PayPal fee. Thanks for your interest and please no spam or anything out of topic when contacting me.

Ah, right. Before I end this post I want to show you guys how much fun I had in my Khezu hoodie before heading to town with bro that day.

Bonus Picture!

Khezu is love, Khezu is life. Poor wyvern-thing needs more love! ;__;
Now with the last lens review of the May batch done, it's time for me to skedaddle my way before I have an army of triggered Monster Hunter fans chasing me with burning pitchforks for being a Khezu lover, lolololol xDD

Anyway, see you guys around and thanks for reading!
