Review, FOTD - NEO Shimmer Honey

This is my favorite pair of contacts by far, I cannot believe I have not reviewed it already!
I love the Shimmer series (aka Beaucon Shimmer) from NEO and own them in blue and green as well, but this honey color gets my special love for its unique brown/grey effects.

in lense case

The lense color is close to light yellow, but it shows up taupe brown when worn since it has grey color delicately mixed in the patterns.
The outer rims are dark but dotted, so they don't look stark or too fake.

(Pictures below were taken a long time ago (pre "soft box" era), but you can still see the awesomeness of this design. ;p)

indirect sunlight

They brighten up my dark brown eyes noticeably yet naturally thanks to the sheer pigmentation.
And the size is just right for me (14.2 mm).
As all Shimmer series I have tried, they feel very thin and comfortable so I can wear them all day with no problem.

I will skip on the detailed descriptions and reviews on each aspect since it was basically covered in my Shimmer Blue review.
I just want to add that I adore this color particularly and I would definitely repurchase them when expired.
If you don't like orange toned brown lenses, I believe honey is a great color option.

Here are some FOTDs for you. :)
