First off, here is my video review of Adore Bi-Tone Grey lenses.
One thing I was really happy about was the fact that the color of these lenses is what I consider to be a true grey. On very dark eyes, all grey-toned or other white-based lenses seem to pull very blue or violet. Although Adore Bi-Tone Grey still does look slightly blue it is still much more neutral than other grey lenses I've tried.
Also, compared to my Solotica Hidrocharme Ice they are a bit less opaque but are also thinner and more comfortable. I know many people, myself included, had difficulties with Soloticas since they are quite thick and didn't allow as much oxygen to the eye as other colored lenses so this may be a good alternative. Actually the pattern of Bi-tones is VERY similar to Solotica Natural Colors since they both have the dashed-line limbal ring.
These are 3 month replacement lenses which is both a pro and con since they are probably going to be more healthy for your eyes but also can be pretty pricey compared to buying 1 set of annual lenses. Most circle lenses are around $15-$30 for 1 pair of annual lenses while Soloticas are around $75 after shipping from Brazil for a pair of annual lenses. Adore Bi-Tone lenses are currently €27.15 at lensmarketplace.com which is about $32.50 in USD. After the €5.95 ($8.27) shipping charge, they are around $40 for a pair of 3-month lenses. BUT if you are a frequent lens buyer then you are probably like me and get bored of 1 style of lenses quickly anyway. ^.^
Here are my pics:

Here are close-ups in slightly different lighting. First is natural light indoors, then more direct sunlight, and finally full-face sunlight. You can click to see the enlarged photos.
Face-punch photo. Gotta have at least one obligatory Asian pose in there, right? XD
The packaging. They come in a really adorable prism-shaped container with two slots for blister packs.
Packaging is yummy!
Here's a close-up of the lenses themselves. Notice the dashed limbal ring and faded pupil hole.
Aaaand one last one with messy hair just because I thought it looked awesome. Haha. Gotta love good hair days!
So tell me what you think about these lenses in the comments. I personally think they are wicked and I'm happy to have found a more eye-friendly alternative to my beloved Soloticas that I can't even seem to wear anymore for how dry and tired they make my eyes. The grey color is natural and a great shade for both regular days and going out and it doesn't wash me out like bluer grey lenses do. I love them!
