This is my review for the EOS E-201 Violet circle lenses, also called the Twisted Star series, sponsored by Mukuchu. I am a big fan of lenses with unusual design, and these are just so unique and gorgeous. I was sent these lenses by Mukuchu (I did not choose them) and I just want to thank them so much :D
Here is the official photo for this lens from EOS's website. They look very intense and kind of scary.
And here are the actual lenses:
When I first saw them I thought they would look very ugly on my eyes since the design is so harsh-looking. However, when I put them on, the effect was amazing!
Natural light (next to balcony)The lenses look like they are glowing. The starburst/spiderweb shape in the middle might be a bit weird to some people, but the color is so gorgeous! I am now kind of curious how the other colors look.
Since these lenses are 14.0mm, there is not much enlargement:
Natural lightPurple is one of my favorite colors, so I am happy that I can add this pair of lenses to my collection. Here are the E-201 compared to my other lenses. First up are my EOS Adult Violet (which I still haven't written a proper review of -___-):
Natural lightThe Adult Violets looks flatter in comparison to the E-201, but the color is slightly more pink. They also seems to be a wee bit bigger.
Here are the E-201 compared to my G&G BT02 Violet (which are quite old and need to be replaced :p):
Natural lightThe BT02 are more blue-toned and has a darker outer ring, but I think they are both very pretty. :)
Here are pics of all the lenses I wore in this review. The middle-top is the E-201 right side up, and the middle-bottom are the lens upside down.
Design: 9/10 - Very unique design, looks incredible when worn
Enlargement: 5/10 - Eh, they are 14.0mm so the small-ness is expected.
Comfort: 7/10 - For some reason they slide around a lot on me.
TOTAL: 7/10 - Pretty cool lenses if you are a weird-lens collector like me, but not for those who want a natural look.
Thank you Mukuchu for the lenses!
