Today, I received a free pair of circle lenses from MyCandyEyes for promoting them in my last review. It only took four days for them to arrive this time! Because I knew these would come at no cost to me, I decided to be daring and pick out a bolder style and color. The pair that I requested was the EOS Adult Pink lenses.
Design (5/10) This pair features a faded black limbal ring, and a gradient of color to clear towards the pupils. Up close, this gradient looks very grainy, which upset me at first. But from a conversational distance, it blends well with my dark eye color. They’re very dramatic, in a different way from most circle lenses. Not only do they look very unnatural, but in my opinion they also make your eyes look angry/mean/serious/sexy. (Even when I smile, I look angry!) Unfortunately, this isn’t the kind of look I’m going for. The lenses make my already strong features look more prominent, instead of softening them. There isn’t much of an enlarging effect, either, if at all.
Color (6/10) When I requested this color, I thought the shade would be darker. To my surprise they come out to be a pale, pastel pink. Now, this would look absolutely gorgeous on me if I had fairer skin. Unfortunately, I’m naturally tan, and the contrast between my darker skin with these lighter lenses looks a little scary and demonic! And personally.. I don’t think they match the current color of my hair, either. These lenses are definitely meant to be balanced out with heavy, dark eye makeup and false eyelashes.
Comfort (8/10) These lenses are no more or less comfortable than my other pairs have been. I actually think they may be less drying!
