This is probably the most fun looking pair that I own considering that my taste for lenses is rather conservative. ;)
Pink and even red lenses are quite popular now, and I wanted to try at least one pair. I have also read some reviews saying these lenses would look light brown on dark eyes like mine, which helped me to make my decision. ;p
This was a part of my second order from koreabigeyes.com.
Shipping was fast (9 days from HK to NY) and everything is packed securely as usual.
This is how they look in vials.
indirect natural lighting, no makeup
slightly different angle
I think this is a very unique and pretty design.
I can't say this is the most natural looking but it does not look outrageous or tacky, either.
The detailed design on the outer rings is very nice, and maybe this is why it looks pretty natural despite of the prominent black rings. (This puts GEO Angel series to shame. ;p)
The medium toned vivid pink color looks light pink/purple or medium brown on my eyes depending on lighting.
Once again, I maybe biased on this since I am not into huge lenses.
14.5 mm is actually the biggest I have tried so far, it is pretty big for me and the enlargement is noticeable.
They feel very comfortable, which surprised me! I expected them to be less comfortable because of the larger diameter. I did feel them for the first 15 minutes or so, but I completely forgot I was wearing them for the rest of the day. Impressive
This is a fun pair to have in my wardrobe and I am satisfied with this design. I can see the same design of gray or brown color would look very pretty and I am even considering to buy them in the future.
Kira Kira means "something sparkly" in Japanese (or so I heard. I don't speak the language, so I am thinking it is like "twinkle twinkle". *^-^*), and yes, this gives you the effect of shimmering sparking eyes.
indirect natural lighting
The pink/purple color shows up more.
under artificial indoor lighting
This was taken later on the same day. (Sorry I look so sleepy. I was! ;p)
It looks almost light brown.
The pinkish brown color gives a little bit of "Twilight Saga" effect? (after hunting, haha)
