The Summer is getting hot day by day. Waiting for the rains eagerly . Anyways coming to today’s product review it is about color lens. As you all aware Freshlook & Bausch & Lomb color lens but unfortunately these brands does not manufacture color lenses for cylindrical Power. They have color lens for only Spherical Power. So as I have both cylindrical & spherical Power I am using Bausch & Lomb’s normal Toric lens in the past & Waiting for any brand to launch color toric lens in India. Finally one day my wait got over & I got this hip hop Hazel lens from Celebration color toric lens range.
1600 INR per one lens (3200 INR for 1 pair) for yearly, price may vary from store to store.(I got one pair from 2500INR with 100 ml lens solution bottle free from nearby optic store .)

CELEBRATION TORIC cosmetic lenses make one's eyes look more beautiful and more natural by giving you that new look you always wanted. It is available with cylindrical power to help correct Astigmatism. These are super soft lenses with high water content are comfortable to wear for the entire day. Recommended replacement time is 1-year. Celebration Colors Toric lenses has high power range and has one lens in a box
It comes in the small glass bottle with top sealed with aluminum foil as shown in the picture. There is 1 lens per bottle with some liquid solution. The contents will be mentioned on the glass bottle itself.
There are seven Color Variables available which are
1)Hip Hop Hazel
My Experience with Celebration Colors Toric Lens –Hip Hop Hazel:
Once you open the glass bottle you need to transfer the lens to the Lens case available in market. This lens is not soft like petal as the Freshlook one but it will not stick to your finger like Freshlook one does. It will feel somewhat plastic if you are wearing it first time but however after some days you will not feel like that as you will get habituate to it. Normally in Bausch & Lomb toric lens there is some marking on the lens & we need to wear lenses according to that marking for getting the clear sharp vision or else the vision get blurred. But in this lens there is no such marking given however it will automatically adjust its axis which needs power correction, which is very good according to me.
I have got the color Hip Hop Hazel which is looking very good on my Indian skin & it will not look artificial. I have a normal Black eye color which I appreciate a lot, However It feels good to change your appearance by wearing the color contact lens.
However this is yearly lens so you have to clean your lens regularly with the lens solution. Due to lots of protein buildup is supposed to be occurring on the lens you need to deep clean this lens by the lens retailer once in a six months to avoid any eye infection.
Let’s sum up the pros and cons:
Pros of Celebration Colors Toric Lens –Hip Hop Hazel:
- Beautiful color which suits the Indian skin tone
- With cylindrical power to help correct Astigmatism.
- 42% Water content.
- Easily available on any optic store or Lenskart.
- One can experiment with their looks with color lens.
- Long durability.
- Wearable time is 8-10 hours
Cons of Celebration Colors Toric Lens –Hip Hop Hazel:

I will surely buy them in other colors as well and recommend everyone who have cylindrical number like me & want to try the color lens without compromising on the clarity of vision.
