Video Review:

color/design: 3/5 These are pretty, but I was really hoping that they would be lighter color with a thinner limbal ring so that I could achieve a better halo effect (although I do get one still, I wanted a little more drastic of one). To me, they somehow look a little too much like my natural color from far away (but obviously larger.. much larger :P). That can be a good thing if I don't want a drastic color change but I want to just focus on enlargement, that is just not the effect that I had in mind when purchasing these. I will still wear them on occasion, but they are not my favorite green lenses to date. 

comfort: 4/5 They are reasonably comfortable, although they feel a little thick so I can sort of tell they are in sometimes, despite the high water content. It doesn't bother me too much and you'll have to take my opinion with a grain of salt, since everyones eyes are different. I also needed eye drops about 4 or 5 hours after I put them in as they started to feel a little dry. Other than that, no problems. :)

enlargement: 5/5 These are 15mm, so you can pretty much expect that they are huge. One thing I did notice was that despite there thicker limbal ring, these don't look quite are enlarging as my Geo Xtra WT-A0 Heart Series (which are also 15mm). Nevertheless, these are quite big and very dolly looking. :) Let me know in the comment section if it would help you to have a comparison photo of those 2 lenses and I would be happy to post one for you. :)

vendor: 5/5 koreabigeyes.com was fabulous! This was my first time purchasing from them and I would gladly do so again. Communication was the best I have experienced, shipping time was reasonable, and the prices are reasonable. Plus they are the only shop that I know that carries the adore lenses, which I think will be my present to myself once I find a job.. haha

Feel free to comment with questions/concerns/suggestions/or to just make me feel the love. :D Now I'm off to eat the delicious bowl of miso that I just made for myself :D:D:D:D

Yum yum!!
