[review] ever-color - hami queen pink.

YESSSSSSSS!  My pomegranate lenses are here!  Well, that's what I call them.  I was getting tired of the usual lenses you find in every single site like PinkyParadise, HoneyColor, etc.  I wanted something new so I went searching around.  I came around some Chinese sites a while ago and decided to look into it some more.  Granted they do have the same lenses sometimes, but they have a different selection of lenses.  I really wanted to try some, but there's this fear out there of fake Chinese duplicates that everyone is afraid of.  All I have to say about that is, if you buy from a legitimate brand, it'll still be lenses manufactured in South Korea, but under a Chinese brand name.  You just have to do your research and make sure you know what you're buying.  A really nice thing about Chinese brands is that most all of them actually come with an authenticity code that you can enter into their website to check if they're authentic or not.

I was actually looking for Lumina from FFXIII: Lightning Returns lenses but there was nothing out there I liked so I started looking at Chinese brands.  I finally found them and I'll review them later, but I also came across a lot of other lenses I wanted.  One that struck out to me so much  were the Ever-color - Hami Queen Pink.  I have never seen a pink like this before, it's not really pink but more of a reddish/pink color.  It makes me think of a pomegranate.  The color was so striking that I could not say no to it, so I impulse bought it.

All I have to say is that I LOVE IT SO SO MUCH!!  The color is amazing and it's just stunning.  I also paired it up with some pink and red eyeshadow and Loveli Bunni's Astral Pink Eye Glitter along with the lenses.  It turned out amazing; I'm still in awe at how good it looked.  >3<  I actually made a quick video of how I achieved the look.  It's not anything in depth, but just a quick and brief overview.

Brand: Ever-color
Series: Hami Queen
B.C.: 8.6 mm
DIA: 14.5 mm
Water Content: 38%
Color: Pink

The packaging the Chinese brands come in are so appealing.  They are so much cuter than just regular vials.  That left corner of the box is where you can scratch off the authenticity code.
The lenses come in plastic packaging with all the information printed on the top of it.
Since these aren't vials, you just have to peel the top cover off SLOWLY.  You don't want to drop your lenses in your sink...I almost did that.  lol...
Look at that color!!  It's so gorgeous~  I was so excited to put it on, but I had to let it soak overnight first.
And this is what they look like!  It complements the makeup so well~  ;A;  I'm in love with these lenses~
And an even closer view of it.  The Astral Pink eye glitter shows up better on this photo too.
Close up view of it in video.  Not sure why it was so saturated in the video though.

I took photos with my Inori wig and photos without it.  Some of my friends actually said that they thought the makeup complemented my real hair better.

What I think about the lenses?
Pomegranates.  I will buy these lenses again and again and again.  lol
Comfort: 4.5/5
Very comfortable.  There was a slight, but very brief discomfort though.  I was not sure if that was due to glitter/makeup in my eyes, or the lenses themselves.
Enlargement: 5/5
For my eyes, these are perfect for enlargement.  There is a limbal ring, but I love how it is not black, but a darker shade of the red/pink color.
Color: 5/5
I LOVE THIS COLOR.  The lenses don't completely blend in with my eye as well, but the color makes up for it.  There's also a halo effect too.

[sponsored review] kitty kawaii - bella grey.

Wow, it's been a while since my last lens review.  XD  I actually haven't been avidly looking for lenses to try on recently since my lack or sleep and other forces [don't know what] has constantly been making my eyes irritated and/or bloodshot.  At first I thought, "OH NO, maybe lenses did this to my eyes", but then I thought about it, it's been months since I have worn any of my lenses...  So yea, I don't think its that.  lol  But I did consider going to the eye doctor to see what was wrong, but it went away in three days.  So yea, it was probably just lack of sleep and staring at laptop too long...I need to fix that lol.

This time, the lenses were graciously given to me by BeCosplay.  I thank the owner very much for allowing me to try the lenses!  I was able to pick two lenses and I will be reviewing the Kitty Kawaii - Bella Grey lenses this post.

Brand: Kitty Kawaii

Front and back of the lens vials.
The color and degrees of the lenses.  Yea, I always get plano; my eyes are not bad enough to where I need correction.
The side of them, and one of them is flipped inside out I think.
Held up to indoor lighting.
And in the solution.  The designs are so pretty 8D
I only had with and without flash photos this time.  I didn't have time to take out my lenses, as I was in a hurry to go to work, but I think we all agree that 15mm is fairly large compared to regular pupil sizes.
This is just another close up of the design.
Live view of the lenses.

Three photos~

What I think about the lenses?
I thought that they wouldn't really show up since they were a really dark color.  They did blend into my eyes as I expected, but the design showed up.  Good for a natural look and really for a big, doe eyed look.  Without makeup, I looked like an alien.  lol
Comfort: 5/5
Recently, when I put in lenses, there will be a slight discomfort as if something was in my eye [well obviously, I'm putting lenses in].  No, but its like, this feeling of an eyelash stuck in my eye or something.  Anywho, when I put these in, I was expecting a slight pain, but nope, nothing.  They slid on smoothly and had no discomfort.  \o/
Enlargement: 6/5
Um hi, may I just say, these are freaking huge?  XD  That's all I have to say.  The photos tell it all.
Color: 2/5
If you're looking for color, don't come here.  These are for pretty much an enlarging effect.  They blend in well with my eyes and just makes me look like I have dilated eyes.  But color is virtually not here; only in sunlight will you see the slight grey that it is.
