Circle Lens Review - EOS V205LB Hazel

Here is my review for EOS V205LB Hazel circle lenses, sponsored by MukuChu. These are similar in design to my G205 Violet from the same company that I have reviewed previously, but for some reason these freaked me out less, and the color is very unique. One of the reasons I chose these lenses is because they are in "Hazel", which I don't have yet. However, when I received them and tried them on, I didn't expect them to be ORANGE! :D

These lenses are a bit more pixel-y than the G205, and the outer ring is dark brown instead of black, which goes very nicely with the orange color. The lizard-eye-ish design actually enhance the exotic appeal of this particular color, and I am interested in seeing if the brown lens from the same series is yellow-ish.

The V205LB are 14.2mm in size, so it has noticeable enlargement. Here are some comparison pics with one lens out:

Since the EOS Max Pure Browns looks orange-ish in their case, I decided to take some comparison pics with the V205LB Hazel. The Max Pure Browns are larger, and when worn they are not orange at all.

I also compared the V205LB with tow pairs of "costume" lenses that I have. First are my EOS Dollyeye Browns, which are golden in color. They seem to be bigger than the V205LB too, and the design are even less natural.

Next are my non-circle lens plano red lenses. I have forgotten what brands they are, but you can see more pics of them in my succubus look for a contest I entered. I wish they would come out with red prescription circle lenses...T^T

Finally, here are all the lenses I wore together. At the bottom is the V205LB Hazel upside down on the left, and right side up on the right.

FINAL VERDICT:
Design: 9/10 - They are ORANGE! I also like the dark brown outer ring.
Enlargement: 8/10 - 14.2mm are noticeable without being bug-eyed.
Comfort: 8/10 - Comfort level is same as other EOS lenses I own.
TOTAL: 8/10 - Potential Cullen vampire lenses? I dunno, cus I have never expanded my knowledge on that fandom beyond knowing that the vampires have golden-orange eyes. :p

Thank you MukuChu for the lenses!
