EOS Max Pure Green Circle Lenses Review (on light eyes)!

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

It official happened, I was able to get a pair of contacts in AND not have to take them off immediately!!! SO HAPPY!! So I wanted a pair of doll like lenses for my Halloween costume. I've tried contacts once before and had a horrible experience. I believe one of the lenses were torn, paired with my ignorance of contact lenses in general resulted in a very poor situation. It's been awhile though and I'm glad I tried them again! I don't think this is something I'd wear in everyday life, but I LOVE the look it gives me for photoshoots. So be expecting more!

I bought my lenses from a Toronto based group called KK Circle Lenses (I personally use their FB group). They have an instock list but you can also buy out of stock. At first I just wanted to pay for air mail since it can be a hassle to face trade but they're accessible at most major areas (Mississauga, UofT, hot spot subway stations..etc) so I just decided to go for that. I met up with Kim who was very sweet and showed me the lenses before I paid. It was placed in this very cute bag with some free candy, the lenses and their card! I'll be ordering from them in the future!

 This was taken from my Nexus S. The colour is pretty accurate though.

I feel like it's harder for people with light eyes since the designs wont always work and they can also darken your eyes. I'm happy with what I got though. Previously I have tried Geo Angel Green and thought I looked like a monster. lol These are more realistic.

It doesn't match my eye colour exactly but they don't look too cartoon-y, imo. It took me FOREVER to put these in but when I did, THEY FELT COMFORTABLE! It was amazing! I had them in for about three hours, first time wearing contacts and felt no discomfort. As you can see, there is definitely an enlarging effect, these are 14.5mm.

Colour/Design: ♥♥♥♥○ (they're not super realistic BUT, that's not what I was intending on buying for this particular pair.)
Comfort: ♥♥♥♥○
Enlargement. ♥♥♥♥♥
Overall: ♥♥♥♥•○

Now onto the shoot!

Natural lighting, the below are taken with studio lighting.

ugh so.. I swear I don't always do that lip thing. So many of my shots were out of focus because a little mistake on my part, woops! Next on the market, I really want to try Nudy Grey/Green/Blue, Tear Gray and the Love Love series by Geo. Ohhhhhhhhhhh yeah!
