Review: EOS Adult Brown from HoneyColor.com

A short review today of a pair of lenses I received a couple of weeks ago!

I bought the EOS New Adult Brown lenses from HoneyColor.com for my future Kuriyama Mirai (Kyoukai no Kanata) cosplay.


As you can see, Mirai's eyes are a light brown. I already own a pair of brown lenses (A3 Bambi, supposed to look like the Masuwaka Tsubasa produced ones) however it's too dark of a brown.

The Adult Brown lenses are perfect for this!

I placed my order on Honeycolor during a promotion period (Free shipping above $18 I believe it was). It was also my first ever purchase on Honeycolor. I have bought lenses from Pinkyparadise, Lensvillage and my friend's own batch order group, Cosqueen, on Facebook.

The lenses took a couple days to ship out and arrived about two weeks later, which is standard for regular shipping.



Honeycolor packages their products very well! It arrived in a small cardboard box, and inside was another small little box with the lens cases fitted to the side.



On the back of the box with the lenses, there are instructions on how to put on contacts. This is really useful for those who are purchasing circle lenses for the first time.


The lens vials are placed really neatly inside the box. Out of all the sites I have ordered from, Honeycolor wins in packaging!





So there were no troubles ordering from Honeycolor and I am more than pleased with the way everything was shipped! The only concern I would have is the lack of cushioning inside the parcel since the lenses are placed inside slots in the box.

Onto the lenses!

  


Specifications
BC:  8.6 mm
DIA:  14.0 mm
Water content:  38%

Colour & Pattern: A light, honey brown that shows up very well on my chocolate-brown eyes. In regards to my cosplay, I think it's a very suitable brown. The pattern is like a softer version of the EOS Dolly Eye series, which are incredibly opaque and solid coloured. It makes your eyes look slightly crystal-like and very delicate. I'm in love with the effect!


Size: These lenses are 14.0mm which are smaller than I am used to. All of my other lenses are either 14.2mm or 14.5mm so they aren't as enlarging as I would like (Especially for the cosplay of such a moe-looking character). On the other hand, it's more suitable for normal daytime wear if you want a more subtle but noticeable effect on your eyes.


Comfort: I have had no problems with discomfort with these lenses. The first day I wore them, I stayed out for about 10 hours. As with all lenses, they tend to dry out the longer you wear them, usually around the 6-7 hour point. Always keep eye drops that are contact-safe on you whenever you wear lenses!

All in all, I love these lenses and the effect it gives to my eyes. I have been trying to wear smaller lenses nowadays since I've been getting over the whole dolly-eye look, but I don't want to give it up completely either so I find these lenses a good compromise!
