[Sponsored] Lens review: EOS Super Neon Green

Hello people!

I thought I would review another pair of circle lenses today and it's gonna feature EOS Super Neon Green, a quite lovely emerald green cosplay-friendly lens. LoveShoppingholics sent me these beautiful eyes for review purposes, hehe. ;u; I hope you will find this review useful, now let's do it!

The lenses that I'm reviewing in this blog post were sponsored by LoveShoppingholics, meaning that I did not pay for the product(s) out of my own pocket. This does, however, not affect my honesty in any way. The words and opinions in this review are mine and mine alone, I don't ever compromise the truth.

Base curve: 8.8 mm
Diameter: 14.8 mm

Life span: 1 year (I recommend 6 months)

Before wearing any circle lenses for the first time, make sure to let them soak in lens solution over the night. Do not attempt to wear them straight out of the vials as the liquid they are stored in is stronger than ordinary solution and is not the best for your eyes. Just don't do it.

The EOS Super Neon series of lenses have a really wide and bold black limbal ring, a generally dark color and a design that appear as striking to me. I like how there's multiple different shades in the lens and how it kinda "flares" around the pupil hole – it's really cool-looking and gives a youthful appearance to it.

One lens in.
The massive limbal ring really creates the illusion of big eyes! It's super cute and mesmerizing. I love the color, it's this really rich emerald green tone that you don't run into too often – I wish more green lenses had this color as it's absolutely gorgeous.
Oh and yeah, as you can see I have blue-gray eyes and the color coverage is great and does what it should. The lenses don't look weird on my eyes and the blending/fading effect looks good, it's not ultra realistic but it is satisfying nonetheless. Then again, if you buy these lenses and expect them to be natural then you are doing it wrong. xD

When it comes to comfort I was a bit let down. I'm sure these would be comfortable for people with normal eyes but I have these ridiculously dry and sensitive peepers and so I had some trouble with these lenses. I struggled with inserting them as they irritated my eyes upon contact and it took several tries to get them on but, luckily, once in my eyes the irritation and stingyness disappeared quickly. I do feel them when I move my gaze etc but otherwise they were pretty okay. I experienced no major discomforts, except for that they started to feel drying early on – after about 1 hour of wear, actually. But yeah, as I said I have some hardcore dry eyes and so my comfort grading is what it is; I'm sure that most people can wear any lenses for double the time than what I can, with ease. My eyes are just so horribly dry that I can barely get through a single day without eyedrops nowadays, at least not on winter months (yes, April kinda still counts as winter here, lmao).

What can I say? I think this is a beautiful lens and I'm happy I got to review these, all thanks to LoveShoppingholics. o/ The color is vibrant enough to make these a decent choice for cosplay and, even better, because of the big size and notable limbal ring these lenses do look 'anime'. Just note that if your eyes are distant cousins to Sahara (like mine) then comfort just might be iffy – otherwise you'll probably rock these lenses.

Short summary: 

Color: 8/10
Gorgeous, dreamy and rich emerald green. Wonderfully deep.
Design: 8/10
Simple yet neat design with a prominent black limbal ring and an interesting pattern.
Opacity: 8/10

Very good color coverage.

Enlargement: 6/10
Not as humongous as one might first think but still big.
Comfort: 3/10
I had trouble inserting these lenses as my eyes reacted to the feel of the them on multiple tries (irritation). Pretty okay to wear otherwise but dry quickly for me. I suspect wearing time on dry eyes is anywhere between 1-3 hours.
Naturalness: 2/10

Too cute and magical to look anywhere near realistic. Get these for rad fashion, not office rounds.

Thank you for reading my review, I hope you enjoyed it. ^.^
