I'M BACK!!! + Circle Lens Review - Neo Cosmos 3-Tone/Glamour Grey

LinkAfter a 2-month-long hiatus, I am glad to announce that Makeup Piggy is back! :D I am finally done with my qualifying exam, and will resume posting reviews and tutorial for you guys. Also of note is that I now have 700+ followers, even though I have been missing for so long. To all the new followers, welcome! And to everyone that has been following me, thank you very much; you are what keeps me motivated in posting in Makeup Piggy. Anyway, let's start with some long-overdue reviews!

This is Neo Cosmos 3-Tone/Glamour Grey, sponsored by Shoppingholics. I cannot tell you how ridiculously in love I am with these lenses! They are just so perfect, and exactly what I am looking for in a natural-yet-striking design for colored lenses.

The Glamour Grey looks wonderful in all lighting, and covers my eyes' original colors really well. The delicately printed design, with the jagged outer ring and light brown inner ring, makes the lenses look very natural. Such a natural look in mass-produced colored contacts is rare, usually you have to look for custom-painted lenses which costs at least a hundred dollars.

The enlargement is minimal for the Glamor series, but I actually feel that if the lenses enlarge too much it would ruin the realistic effect.

Here are the Glamor Greys compared to another of my favourite grey lenses, Neo Dali Extra Grey. The colors of the Glamor Greys are much stronger, but Extra Grey gives better enlargement. Neo Vision have excellent designs in their lenses! :)

Some of you might have noted that the Glamor Greys look a bit blue. Here are the lenses compared with the actually blue variety from the same series (which I reviewed here). The blue lenses are darker and brighter blue when you put them next to the grey.

Here are all the lenses used in this review. Clockwise from the top: Glamour Grey right side up, Glamour blue, Glamour Grey upside down, Dali Extra Grey.
FINAL VERDICT -
Design: 10/10
- Pure love <3
Enlargement: 7/10 - As I said before, there is minimum enlargement for these lenses
Comfort: 10/10 - No discomfort at all, but the lenses are a bit thin and require careful handling.

OVERALL: 10/10 - This time's overall score is not an average, but my general impression of the lenses instead. I just love love love these lenses, and I will definitely buy another pair when these expire!

Thank you Shoppingholics for the lenses!

Welcome back and hope your exams went well :D
Those lenses do look very awesome~! I love lenses with brown-yellowish inner rings to help blend into natural eye colours but I'm not really liking the jagged outer ring on these ones ^^"
Can you recommend me any other lenses that are somewhat similar without the jagged edges??
Oh and also, what's the size of these lenses?
Sorry for asking so many questions xD

Amaaaaaaazing! *___* I have ordered similar in brown too! x3 I like the natural light the most when I wear lenses :D

oh wow I like how the outside instead of a dark bold black ring, it's a very natural looking spiky design that fades into the eye! I would definitely like to try these =D

靜靜: Geo 3-tone/Tri Color lenses are similar in design without the jagged edges, and they are pretty popular too. I reviewed the green ones here: http://makeup-piggy.blogspot.com/2011/03/circle-lens-review-geo-3-tone-tri-color.html
