Hey everyone, I know a lot of you have been looking forward to the review of these EOS Angel Brown lenses. It seems that there haven't been too many photos of this type floating around yet but I've got to say, I really love these!
I of course got the lenses from Pretty and Cute. Janie is sooooo great with customer service so if you order these, I highly recommend her online store. :D
Here's a quick video review of the lenses. (Sorry, had to delete the first couple uploads cause the sound was off. It's fixed now so I apologize to those who commented or rated the vid before!)
Similar to the Adult grey lenses, these lenses seem to change color depending on what lighting you are in. They go anywhere from a tan color to a true grey. It's a much more natural look than Adult Grey also, since Grey turns light blue or lavender on me. I also think these would be easier for those with fairer skin to pull off. Light blue lenses in general probably look best on those with tanner skin or darker complexions, but light brown and grey seems to flatter a wider range of skintones.
They also have the same crystal-like pattern that all of the Adult series has, which may seem intimidating but actually looks quite natural in real life. It blends in better than many lenses that have a solid pupil hole.
Here you can see the pattern. It has the same bluish, faded limbal ring that Adult Grey has.
And this is with Adult Brown in natural light. (Told you I love this blazer!)
a close-up. dang, uploading to blogger makes my pic quality yucky! :P
super close-up to see the pattern. oh, and this is one of my favorite neutral looks using NYX single shadows in cream cheese, flamingo, and almond.
I just love the effect of these. It's kind of soft, don't you think?
mmm, I love my wedding ring. ^^
And I wanted to see how they would look in different lighting, so these were taken by a floor lamp that we have. It's one of those rice-paper vessel type lamps that gives off a soft light.
All in all, I like it! My Adult Greys and these are practically tied for my favorite lenses. Gotta love the eye-catching effect of Greys, but the Browns are so soft and natural yet still very bright. I've never really seen that with any brown lenses except maybe Solotica Ocre lenses but I prefer these over Soloticas.
As I mentioned earlier, you can buy these from www.prettyandcute.com and please tell Janie that you were referred by frmheadtotoe. :)
Now I gotta go shower and get ready for babysitting, then out for a night on the town! I haven't gone dancing in FOREVER! Woop, woop!
