If you have been following Through Beauty Eyes for a while, you would have probably noticed that I am not a fanatic circle lenses lover. Whilst I enjoy spicing up the look with some colour lenses or getting cheap thrill of looking like a gyaru with those circle lenses and falsies, I don't wear them on a daily basis. Firstly, most toric lenses designs are rather boring and simple compared to the non-toric ones. Secondly, I find it a tad over the top for my liking for everyday use. It's just personal preference here, really.
However, circle lenses are almost a staple in special events such as Christmas party, launches or even a Friday night out. I used to wear circle lenses to work on Friday as I am always out after work, but its less frequent now as my 2 of favourite lenses (courtesy of Kiwiberry) weren't my exact prescription. :(
I will be reviewing EOS J203 Adult Green today and EOS G201 Max Pure Grey will be coming up tomorrow. :)
EOS J203 ADULT GREEN
I know the green looks a little light and "fake" here but it doesn't look too artificial when you wear it.
The difference is pretty obvious with & without DOH since I have pretty dark eyes.
With lenses, without make up.
With lenses AND make up.
A close up of the lenses, see what I mean by looking not too artificial when you wear it?
So now, you have seen the comparison shots and how it looks like when worn, let's move on to What I Think about these lenses:
Color/ Pattern: It is a bright and vibrant colour (due to the fact that I have dark brown eyes), which I think its a great colour to have in your circle lenses collection, for special events when you're going for the more dramatic look. It is pretty obvious when worn, which is massive contrast compared to my E Natural Toric Circle Lense.Hence, it might be a little too out there for someone who's looking for something more natural.
Comfort: They are pretty comfortable and feels just like the normal lenses. However, like most circle lenses, you are not meant to wear them for long hours. This applies here too. I could go with a good 6-7 hours without feeling dry but the last time I worn this was from 7am to 3am the next day and needless to say, my eyes were as dry as the Sahara desert.
Enlargement: The black rim on the lenses probably did give the eyes a little "pop" and makes them less dopey but I don't think it has much of a enlargement effect.
Price: Retailing at US$20.00 per pair, I think its pretty reasonable. It costs as much as a dinner and dessert but you get a pretty long use from it instead of go in and come out a day or two later LOL (ok, that was a little too far lols).
OVERALL: I really like these lenses, especially when I have parties or events to attend. My only setback is probably the fact that they aren't toric and it's not advisable to wear lenses that aren't your exact prescription. I guess that's the price you pay for beauty, as long as it's in moderation. :) I will only wear these lenses when I don't have to (or minimum need to) face the computer and/ or read. Highly recommended if you're looking for something more out there. If you're just about to pop your circle lenses cherry, you might want to start with something more subtle. :)
