[Sponsored] Lens review: EOS Super Neon Brown

Hello folks!

Today I'll roll up the curtains for another circle lens review and it's the EOS Super Neon Brown that I'm talking about! It's a medium brown lens with a big black rim, it's quite cool actually! LoveShoppingholics sent me these pretties for review purposes, I thank them for making this review possible ~

The lenses that I'm reviewing in this blog post were sponsored by LoveShoppingholics, meaning that I did not pay for the product(s) myself. 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)

Remember to always take the lenses out of their little glass bottles and put them to soak in ordinary lens solution over the night, before wearing them for the first time! This is important because the solution that the lenses are stored in is of a different kind (stronger) than ordinary lens solution and thus it might irritate your eyes. Always be careful when it's about your sight!

The EOS Super Neon series of lenses have a wide and bold black limbal ring, a dark color and a notable enlargement boost. The design consists of multiple different shades of browns that are aimed towards the center. The way how there's both lighter and darker shades involved makes the lens appear to have more depth and a realistic look to it. There's quite a lot of pigment on the lenses and the color pixels are dense, which implies that these will cover up my eye color well.

One lens in.
I have light blue-gray eyes and these do definitely provide my eyes with a dark gaze! In a way I'm surprised that these are not darker when you compare with the other Super Neon lenses that I've tried – those have all been several shades darker than what you normally stumble upon. These are more a medium brown, not that deep chocolate color I was prepared for. Nevertheless it's not a bad color by any means and it's actually pretty nice!

Comfort is within the averages. I slightly feel them in my eyes and they start to dry fast but otherwise I have no issues, save for a minimal amount of occasional vision blur. I expect to be able to wear these for anything between 1-3 hours without eyedrops, which is really average on my really dry and sensitive eyes. If you happen to be blessed with "normal" eyes (aka not Sahara globes like me, lol) then I'd guess the range would be more like 3-5 hours, or something similar to that.
The Super Neon series are not for those who seek a natural look as they check all the boxes of big, colorful, dolly and on top of that they don't blend a lot. The color doesn't fade towards the center and thus it's pretty obvious where the lens meets your real eye color – there's a slight color 'clash' but that's to be expected with such a full-on pigmented lens, especially on light-eyed people like me.

It's a pair that lends itself to many things, thanks to the rather simple yet cute design! I can definitely see these being used for many j-fashion styles and they might be good for cosplay too, depending on what kind of lenses you prefer in general. The color payoff is good and it's all in all a lens worth buying if you fancy brown lenses a little bit extra.

Dolly big but not over the top.

Wearable. Dries fast but otherwise no real issues. Estimated wearing time 1-3 hours on very dry eyes.
