LENS REVIEW: EOS M-201 Brown.

I got these lenses a while back. I initially wanted to get gng bt02 Brown which has a similar lens design. The difference in my opinion (based on pictures) is bt02 brown is actually a circle lens that enlarges your iris. Also the bt02 brown is more opaque.

The M-201 brown is a cosmetic lens that barely enlarges and is more of an enhancer. The inner portion is a dot matrix pattern that is orangy-yellowish, followed by a spikey outer limbal ring. I do not wear these often as I find they don't do much for me. They are very natural. However, I like natural BIG. Not natural normal.

EOS M-201 Brown Review:



Colour:
2/5. Not noticeable enough for my liking. I think these would be much cooler on light blue or green. I personally would find the effect very pretty.

Enlargement: 1/5. Barely there.
Naturalness: 4/5. Blending is very nice. These give my dark brown eyes a hint of light brown.
Comfort: 4/5. Eos lenses are very comfortable. More than my geos.
Price: I paid around 20$ USD for these. So about average pricing.

LENS REVIEW: Solotica Natural Colours Mel

SOLOTICA NATURAL COLOURS MEL (or Honey).

Indoors.
Flash.

Let me first say that I Looooove these lenses! They are very natural looking (as noted by their name). I would pick these out of most lenses that I have, about 90% of the time. The difference is noticeable but isn't striking, yet still alluring. The only thing I would change is the colour of the limbal ring; from black to brown or gray. Other than that, the colour is close to perfect.

SOLOTICA NATURAL COLOURS MEL REVIEW:

Score out of 5. 5 Being the Awesome!!!

COMFORT: 3/5. I can wear these for about 6 hours. I wouldn't surpass that as my eyes start to become dry. I only wear these on average of 2 times a week. This is to allow my eyes to breath. After the six hour mark, if I remove my lenses there is a slight red ring around the iris.
Dryness is the only issue I have with solotica lenses. Initially in the beginning they are comfortable, however they dry fairly quickly. If I know I'm going to be away for awhile I bring lubricating drops and my lens case if at any time I want to remove them.
COLOUR: 4.5/5. Subtle yet noticeable as stated earlier. I love the colour. Off the eye it is a blend of yellows and black dots. On the eye (my eye) it turns into a medium green. And not Hulk green like the geo angel greens. The only reason I docked off .5 is the limbal colour change I would make from black to brown or gray.
ENLARGEMENT: 2/5. These are not meant to enlarge. However, they do. Slightly. There is a comparison shot below.
NATURALNESS: 4.5/5. See for yourself. They are pretty close though!
PRICE: 3/5. Because they are import they are more pricey. On average I've seen prices range around 100$. These lens are yearly so they are worth it for me!
OVERALL: 3.5/5. I really like these lenses. I plan on purchasing the NC ocres as soon as I'm done with these.
