Hello everyone! This will be lens madness week as I have a couple of new lenses to show you. I am very excited about these and although I am not a frequent lens wearer, I do love the extra pop it can give eyes for special occasions and photos. I hope you guys find the photos and reviews helpful. ^^
The first are a pair of Soloticas that were generously sent to me from wrlens.com. Although I haven't personally ordered through their website, the people I talked to were very kind and their website is very user-friendly since it is already set up in English. They also have an informative blog with real photos of the lenses in eyes as well as video reviews. From my experience, they are also quick to answer e-mails.
I already have tried ocre, mel, and ice so I thought I would get something new this time. Verde Marine is an aqua color which is a very bright bluish-green. In most photos I've seen of this color, the color has leaned more toward bright blue but in natural light on me, it looks almost hulk green at times. Maybe it is because I have very dark eyes and have red undertones in my eyes. I have no idea.
Anyway, here are my photos:
My package of goodies. There was a nylon Solotica backpack-sack, bubble-wrapped lenses, lens case (color matches lens color), and a note.
It came like this. Weird that it was ripped. But I think the name is the same guy at wrlens who sent me the package.
Pretty lenses! See how the pattern gets more translucent in the center? This gives the lens a blended pupil for a more natural look.

And here are a few photos of the verde marines in my eyes:

And a couple of me just being silly.
Overall, I do like these lenses but I think I prefer my hidrocharme ices. I would've liked these to have been a bit more blue and I'm not sure if it's just the camera or what, but I think these make me look more tan. They are not a very natural color. I also didn't do any color-correcting in my photos and the camera made me look either too yellow or too red with these on. Very strange! They are very fun and dramatic lenses though. If you like drama, these are for you. I also think they'd be more flattering with lighter hair.
Stay tuned for my review on EOS Adult Grey lenses next time. :)
