Circle Lens Review - EOS Diamond (G-218) Grey

Long time no blog! Blame my lazy ass and the new semester :p Anyway here is a review of EOS Diamond (G-218) Grey, sponsored by MukuCHU. It's from a series of lenses with gemstone-inspired patterns.

The color on the Diamond Grey is relatively subtle, but I feel that it makes the lens more crystal-like. The pattern is very unique without being scary as well.

These lenses are 14.5mm in diameter, so their enlarging effect is very obvious. I like how the "halo" gives the lenses depth too.

The Diamond series reminds me of GEO Xtra Lotus, which has a similar "radiating triangles" pattern to it. I do prefer the Diamond as they seem to make my eyes sparkle.

Compared to another pair of dark grey lens I own, EOS V-202 Grey, the Diamond is more interesting to look at, and slightly more enlarging.

Here are all the lenses worn in this review. Clockwise from the top: Diamond Grey right side up, Xtra Lotus Grey, Diamond Grey upside down, V-202 Grey.

FINAL VERDICT:
Design: 9/10 - Very interesting design, and the subtle color really works with it.
Enlargement: 9/10 - Pretty enlarging even without a dark outer ring.
Comfort: 9/10 - No significant discomfort so far.
TOTAL: 9/10 - You know what this series of lenses would be good for? A cosplay of Oscar Wilde's The Happy Prince


Thank you MukuCHU for the lenses!

Really big enlargement, aren't they, for a 14.5mm! I'm so glad you did this review. I've been looking for these lenses because I saw a girl on fb wearing them as I had never seen the design before and didn't know the name of them!

That grey really looks like a 'warm' tone, somehow. o: Very pretty! And yeah-- this is one of the better 'diamond' design lenses I've see.

They're super cute on you, as with about any lens~.
