[sponsored review] neo vision - neo 2 color blue.

Guess what!  It's another lens review that I got from E-Circlelens.  I will be reviewing some blue contact lenses!  I haven't reviewed blue ones in forever...but here's the catch.  I made a mistake...>.>  I didn't realize I had reviewed some lenses really similar, if not the same, as these.  But that's okay, this is the new and updated version of the review with better quality photos!  Also, comparing to the old lenses, these lenses are actually more vibrant so maybe they revamped the lenses or something?  These were also more comfortable than the old ones so yea that's a good thing.  Also if you buy it from E-Circlelens you can actually change the base curvature of the lenses to match your eyes.  So if you have astigmatism this would be really good for you.

These are what the vials look like.  Very plain looking right?  But the lenses inside make up for it!  lol
The lens held up to the light.
Comparison of the the lenses in different lighting.
Close up of the lenses, you can really see the design here~
The videos I took this time were blurry so I have to redo them.

I haven't put on faux eyelashes in such a long time I wanted to use them today.  I paired it with some blue eyeshadow to match with the lenses, but I only applied it lightly only to enhance the blueness of the lenses rather than overpower it.  It's a nice look for going out to the mall and isn't too dramatic.
I realllllly like how the lenses looked in this photo right here~
The lenses are still quite vibrant from far away.  I took this using natural lighting coming from a window, but it's still blue even under semi-dark lighting as well.

What I think about the lenses?
Blue lenses are one of my favorites~  These would be good lenses for cosplay, definitely.  The designs in these lenses resemble sunflowers and the lenses also go by an alternate name "Sunflower Edge" series.
Comfort: 5/5
As expected of Neo Vision contacts; the lenses from them are always super thin and super comfortable.  I wore them all day with no discomforts and at the end of the day my eyes weren't sore or dry.  They felt like nothing~  *o*
Enlargement: 2/5
These are one of those lenses where I would classify as just for color.  There's not much enlargement in the lenses which is totally A-OKAY with me since I like colorful and vibrant lenses more than I want enlargement.  There still is a thin black ring bordered around the lenses for slight enlargement, so if you're looking for just something to make your eyes look a little bit bigger with some nice color, these are the lenses for you.
Color: 5/5
Very nice sapphire blue color.  It also makes me think of a deep ocean blue color as well and can look lighter depending on the lighting.  Overall I really like this blue, it's quite vibrant~

[sponsored review] unicontact - mio accent brown.

Okay so, work is kicking me in the butt.  XD  I have been working 6-8 hours everyday since last Tuesday.  Today was my first off day so I finally got to do another lens review.  I wish I could post reviews more often since I want to try out all the lenses I got.  ;<  My schedule for work doesn't seem to get any better either for this next week.....sighs.  Well at least I'm making money rather than being poor I guess.  lol  Anyways, today I will be reviewing some lenses I received from E-Circlelens!~  This time I was able to choose blue contacts and gold contacts.  Did I say gold?  Yes!  I did say gold.  Gold contacts are so hard to find so I was so excited to see that E-Circlelens had gold contacts so I picked them to see how they would look.  I have tried some other gold lenses before but I wanted to see if these were any better or more comfortable.  8D

Whooooo!  Picture time!  The lens vials~  These were actually pretty easy to take off.  No scratches this time!  I've gotten too many cuts and scratches from boxcutters at work.  =.=
YES GOLD DO YOU SEE THAT WONDERFUL GOLD COLOR!  Isn't it beautiful  *o*  It looks like it glitters when it's held up to the light.
In solution~  Looks a bit dimmer here but nonetheless still a pretty gold though its technically listed as brown lenses
I'm amazed they still retained a golden color on my dark brown eyes as well.
Close up of the details on the lenses~
Sorry the video looks a bit grainy, I'm not sure why that is, I'll have to check my camera settings.

 I went with a natural makeup style today because someone asked me before about how to do natural makeup...well this is how I do my natural makeup; can you tell I have makeup on?  I have some brown shimmer eyeshadow on and brown eyeliner.  I also used a very thin coat of mascara as well for the eye makeup.  Don't forget the shimmer for the inner corner of the eye too!
Today is a tomboy style day so that's why it's also very natural makeup...I look like a shota in this photo though.  That brown line I drew on my lips...probably a bad idea, lol makes my lips look ever wider than it already is.
Lol Sorry for the different lighting in this photo, I took this photo after coming back from work.  Yes it was my day off, but I still had to go in for an hour for cash register training so I went to work with my makeup and lenses on.  lol  The sun started setting when I took this photo so I didn't get as much good lighting.  ;<

What I think about the lenses?
If you need gold lenses for these.  They're so nice~  Nice gold color but doesn't look scary.  It can also look brown in some lighting as well.
Comfort: 4/5
No discomforts, just started drying out a bit a few hours later.
Enlargement: 3/5
For 14.00 mm lenses, these have decent enlargement because there is a bold black limbal ring around the colored part of the lenses.  I thought these were small enough to where they wouldn't make you look like you have alien eyes without makeup on.  So all in all, they're a good size for dolly makeup or natural makeup.
Color: 5/5
GOLD!  They are gold!  What more can I say.  They can actually look orange as well in different lighting as well.  The design with the black and gold creates a sort of sparkle/glittery look to the lenses.  It makes your eyes all kira kira~  The color is vibrant and bold and it will definitely show a different color on dark brown eyes.

[sponsored review] lenspop - bunny color brown.

Finals week is over!  No more school, but I do have to get a job.  So I actually went to a job fair on Saturday and was hired on spot.  Talk about lucky!  Now I don't have to worry about not finding a job anymore~  >3<  What's even cooler is that they don't mind me having colored hair, they even said I could have rainbow hair and they wouldn't care.  lol  But anyways, I was contacted by KLensPop and they were kind enough to offer to sponsor me some lenses to review!  One of the ones I received was the Lenspop - Bunny Color in brown.  They are very similar looking or even the same as the GEO - Grang Grang brown which I've wanted to try before, so I was excited to try these out!

The lenses came in a cute box with a lens case and plastic tweezers to pick up the lenses with.  I have actually never actually used the tweezers before for lenses so it was interesting to try!  (The lens bottle shown in the photo is for the 2nd pair of lenses I received, Cara Green, from Klenspop  ^^;)
The back of the box has some just information on how to take care of your lenses and place the lenses safely in your eyes which I think is a really good for beginners to lenses!
Again, I am reviewing the Bunny Color brown, and this is what the vial looks like.  Isn't it cute?
When held up to the light, the lenses are like a honey brown color which I think are super pretty.  Always liked brown lenses that were a bit yellow as well.
Comparison shot of the lenses with no flash and flash.
Single eye close up of it~  You can really see the details and how nicely it blends into the eyes since there is not a bold limbal ring.  Really happy how my eye makeup turned out today as well.
And of course please watch for a live representation of the lenses.

I decided to go with a megane look for this one.  This was a silly
I was being super silly when I was taking most of my photos...this one was probably like the only serious looking one.  lol

What I think about the lenses?
Very natural lenses, but has a nice pop of color that can let your eyes stand out.
Comfort: 4/5
I didn't have any discomforts until about 4 hours later.  My eyes weren't watery or in pain, but sore so I think I just was at my limit for wearing them too long.
Enlargement: 3/5
They looked just right for my eyes which is what I prefer.  I don't usually like the REALLY huge circle lenses since they can look a bit too unnatural.  The lenses itself on these are 14.00 mm but the design of the lenses are only 13.80 mm.
Color: 4/5
I was scared that these lenses wouldn't show and would just be a dark brown color on my eyes, but I was wrong!  I really like how they are a honey brown color and actually make my eyes look really pretty.  The design is really nice for it too~
