review : EOS Candy Gray Lens (Jewel Gray)

May 9, 2012 No comments

Hello everyone! Today's circle lens review is sponsored by international circle lens and cosmetics store, Shoppingholics. These lenses, the EOS Candy Gray / Jewel Gray, were actually sent to me a few months ago, in February I think. I chose them because one of my favorite lenses that I had before were EOS Candy Pink lenses.

The packaging was so lovely. It came with a little card and everything! By far, Shoppingholics' packaging is the best I've seen out of all circle lens stores.

Because I still had a lot of other lenses I had to review at the time, I wasn't able to review these at once. When I finally decided to review them late last month, I suddenly had a bit of an issue with my eyes. Because I was so scared with all the bad news about a particular circle lens store at that time, I stopped wearing contacts for a while. But the instant that my eyes got better (turns out the new lens fluid that I was using was too strong), I went ahead and did the review for these.

Indoors + natural light through the window.

When worn, with flash. (Lots of it, sorry!)

Color & Design:
As I've mentioned before, I'm very partial to the EOS Candy / Jewel line, because I really like the way that they blend into the eye. The black limbal ring may be a bit too much for most people though, but for me it wasn't much of a problem. I do wish the color was more of a warm grey, so they didn't turn out so blue against my dark brown eyes.

Enlarging, but not as much as most lenses. These are 14.5mm, so they're .3-.5mm smaller than most lenses that I've gotten used to.

Comfortable, but I tend to feel them moving around sometimes. This usually happens after I've been wearing them for a while, but it doesn't happen all the time. I don't know if it's something with the base curve of the lenses or what, but for some reason with these lenses I can't shake off the feeling that I'm wearing them. I think it's just that my eyes prefer GEO lenses over EOS ones..?

Overall a really nice pair of lenses, especially if you want your eyes to be the main point of your whole look. These are no way natural-looking, and they can catch anyone's attention. I also noticed that they look best with full eye makeup (which is why I'm wearing falsies in both photos). I think these are more suited for cosplay or even for visual kei looks.. or if you just really want to really stand out.

A few reminders:
☆ You are best advised to consult your eye doctor before wearing any lenses. It is your responsibility to minimize the risk of wearing lenses. Kindly please read the wear & care guide carefully to ensure proper handling of lenses. The rule of thumb for eye safety is, if you experience any discomfort, remove the lens immediately.
☆ Though the lenses in this review were sponsored by Shoppingholics, everything written here is 100% my honest opinion.
☆ All photos used in this review belong to me. Please do not take them without my permission!!

I'm so sorry, really, for not being able to review the items I'm being sent by all my lovely sponsors on time.. I'm trying my best, I really am! I do wish you'd bear with me ;; Up next for review are: EOS Puffy 3 Tone Grey from UNIQSO (another much-delayed review) + two more lenses from my local sponsor, Dull to Doll
