As promised, here is part II of lens madness! This time I received a wonderful package from S2Janie of www.prettyandcute.com containing EOS Adult lenses in Grey. She is a great resource for buying circle lenses (colored contact lenses that enlarge your iris) and her shipping was safe and fast, plus she gives out freebies! I got a cute, blue Snoopy lens case. (please check out her lens shop if you are interested in circle lenses and please let her know Jen sent you!)
Not sure if they are a fairly newer series, but I haven't seen too many people wearing Adult lenses online yet. I will say that the pattern of these lenses are what drew me to them though. It's gorgeous and crystallized. There is no harsh limbal ring, only a soft violet one so it seems to look pretty natural. It doesn't enlarge much, but I prefer this type to lenses that make me look like an alien.
Here is a photo of the promo image of this lens.
It's difficult to really see the pattern from that small image but I can't seem to find any online that are higher quality. After doing some research, I think the lens type also goes under the code E-203 and also be sold by the company ColorVue. No concrete proof on that though, just my speculation.
I was hoping that it would look like a true grey on me, like in the promotional image, but the lens was more lavendar or sky blue on me. It changed depending on the lighting which is pretty cool, just not what I was expecting.
This is the same position, just with flash and without taken in my bathroom. See how the color is totally different?
With flash, bathroom light, and natural light.
Bathroom light makes it look violet
Natural light makes it look more grey or blue-grey
I love these lenses so much! From farther away...
And close-up they sparkle
And this one turned out a lot like the promo image. I thought it showed the pattern well.
So I think these are officially my new favorite lens! They are quite noticeable and actually blend in well. You wouldn't think that would be so for such a light-colored lens. A part of me still does wish that it was grey-grey all the time, but I still think the blue and violet tints it turns are still flattering on me so it's not that bad. They are thinner than Soloticas also, but with just as much impact. I can't wait to see how these look with professional photography! I really want to try the E.O.S. Adult browns next to see if they sparkle as much as these do. :D
Just for comparison, I took more photos with the Hidrocharme Verde Marines on the same day so I'll show a few more next time. I think they came out better than last time. Yay for lens-porn.
Let me know what you think of these lenses! Also, let me know what your favorite lens color is. My first favorite was green, but I think blue/grey has officially won me over. :)
