[sponsored review] js contact - nada brown.

It is Spring Break for me!  Time for spring cleaning, more cosplay sewing, catching up on homework...so much for a break.  BUT I also received two pairs of lenses in the mail from E-Circlelens to review!  I now have a new DSLR and this would be the first time I am using it to do my reviews with.  The photo quality should be better.  I'm still getting used to the camera so things might be a bit different from my usual layout.  I will be reviewing from the Nada series.  I have actually never heard of JS Contact but they are a Korean brand.  E-circlelens carry a variety of Korean lenses as they are based in Korea so they are more brands.

Before I get onto the review I thought it was pretty cool how they have little brochures for their company.  They also included a brochure on how to wear contact lenses which I thought is a good helpful tool for beginners.

I really like how they provided a plastic covering to keep the bottles together.
Power is plano like always, though I did find them a bit blurry for some reason.  I probably had some fuzz on it or something.
They are brownish but yellowish at the same time.  The design looks nice too.
What they look like in solution and my pink gingham cloth.  lol  I wanted to try something different besides just white or fluffy backgrounds.  Not 100% sure if I like it or not,
Different lighting for comparison...they almost look the same don't they?
This is a closer up of the lens itself since I don't actually provide a single eye view in the video.  ><
I really need to figure out my lighting for videos.  ;<

What they look like from far away.

What I think about the lenses?
They're natural lenses good for daily wear but the yellowish hue also gives it a nice pop in color so it's not too plain.  I think they would be good for brown-eyed characters when cosplaying.
Comfort: 4.5/5
When I first wore it to test it out, my eyes were in slight discomfort, but I think that was because I had strained it from earlier.  When I wore it for the review it was completely fine, no pain whatsoever.  My vision was a bit blurry though, but I think that was just because of me and not the lenses.
Enlargement: 3/5
Good natural enlargement, not too big and not too small.  The brown limbal ring gives it a more natural appearance than a black limbal ring, but that also gives it a smaller enlargement.
Color: 3/5
I like these lenses but I was hoping that they were a bit more yellow.  They do show up pretty well and from afar it does look like a lighter brown.  I think they're really pretty and depending on the lighting they can have a caramel brown hue or end up looking like an icey brown.

bright silver.

Quick update on my hair!  It's taken so long to finally get my hair this light.  It is finally silver but the dye is not lasting long.  It's slowly turning blonde again.  But this is what it looks like now.
