Hi everyone, Happy New Year! I can't believe it's already 2010. ^O^
I just wanted to quickly congratulate Stacey on winning Juny's Sequin Cardigan Giveaway. I've given Juny your e-mail and she should get in contact with you soon to get your shipping info. :D It will be a nice happy holidays present. I hope you find lots of fabulous outfits to wear your cardigan with! Thank you to all of the entrants and Juny assured me that she would love to do another giveaway in the future too. In the meantime, visit her super cute shop www.junys.com for Asian fashion and accessories.
So today I have part 2 of 3 circle lens reviews of lenses sponsored by PinkyParadise.com. These are the EOS brand Adult Violet lenses.
So my first impression of these lenses was WOW they are really light and in-your-face pale violet. It's not as natural as the Adult Grey or Brown that I love so much. It may be that the lenses I received were different opacities, but for some reason they just looked a bit more reptilian than I am 100% comfortable with. A good word to describe it is "exotic" as it's not a typical color you see in a lens.
Don't get me wrong, I think they are also gorgeous. Lavender is one of my favorite colors but I think I prefer the darker lens to the lighter one. :P They are 14.0mm in size with little-to-no enlarging effect since they don't have a dark limbal ring.
Here is a shot of the lens vials and case. Fishies. ^O^
The pattern in the vials. Cute pink color, but even here you can see the opacity difference.
And how they look on me
A close-up on the eyes. See how much darker the right one is than the left? I like the right side better. :3
It looks less natural in brighter lights! I still like the darker side better. >.<
I know my video review probably sounds more positive than my review here but it's because it looks a lot better in real life and on video. Upon review of my photos, I don't like how it turns out quite as well in still pictures so that's something to think about if you are deciding on what color or style to buy.
Still very cool and exotic, but I don't think it'll be a lens I reach for as often as my Adult Grey or Brown.
Again, if you'd like to purchase these, they are from www.pinkyparadise.com.
Everyone have a wonderful first week of 2010!
Just to reiterate the disclaimer, I did receive these lenses as part of a sponsorship by Pinky Paradise, and as always, my reviews are my 100% honest opinion. ;)
