Circle Lens Review - EOS G-206 Grey

Here is my review for EOS G-206 Grey circle lenses, sponsored by MukuChu. These are 14.2mm lenses in a natural style, so if you are looking for a nice everyday grey lens these might be fore you :)

This is the official photo from the EOS site:
Here are the lenses in their bottles:
And here they are being worn in different light:

Direct sunlight
Indoor light
As you can probably tell, these are relatively dark and one-dimension. They are, however, a nice choice if you just want a bit of shimmer in your eyes.

Since these are 14.2mm, I did not expect much enlargement. I would have to say, though, that they look more like 14.0mm when worn. Here are some comparison pics with one lens out:

There is minimal enlargement for these lenses, and the limbal ring is thin. In fact, they are barely bigger than my Solotica Hidrocor Grey!

Sad sidenote: I found out that the other Solotica lens dried out when I took them out for these photos, so the pair is in the trash now. My Beaucon Jewel Pink dried up too, but I don't like them that much anyway.

Here are some comparison pics with my Neo Cosmos Glamour Blue; I am thinking of getting the greys from the same series since I really like the light color.

As you can see, the G-206 Grey enlarges even less than the Glamour Blues, and looks quite dull in comparison. I think my sponsor might have sent me the wrong lenses, since I asked for the G1, which looks more like the Glamour Greys. :\

Here are all the lenses I wore in this review. The top middle is the G-206 grey right side up, and the bottom middle is the lens upside down.
In fact, I think the lenses actually look like the Migwang Aryan A21 Grey:
Design: 6/10 - Dark and uninspiring, looks nothing like the ad pic
Enlargement: 5/10 - I think these are actually 14.0mm, so they are small
Comfort: 7/10 - For some reason they kind of irritate my eyes, but maybe it is just this particular pair's problem
TOTAL: 6/10 - I know I shouldn't be dissing these lenses so much since I got them for free, but they are really disappointing. :(

Thank you Mukuchu for the lenses!

Oh wow-- can't believe you don't like these lenses-- I think they look great on you! (I can see what you mean about the colour, though-- it's a bit wan.)

And yeah-- they rather look like a 'sharper' version of the Soloticas with a ring around them, oddly enough...

S'too bad you didn't get the G1 Greys-- I'd planned to pre-order them recently. o:
