Hana SpEye Twist Green (CN23) Review:

DESIGN / COLOUR: ★★★★☆
The overall colour and design is really pretty.  Off the eye the pattern is of a twisting motion (hence the name), but when worn it reminds me of a rose.  The pattern consists of dark gray lines cross hatching light green.  The overall result is a nice dark green colour (on my eyes).  Even though the lens consists of bright green colour, the dark gray is more dominant, resulting in a nice natural, almost muted green.  The outer limbal ring is a dashed pattern which gives the lens a softer and more natural look. 

ENLARGEMENT:  ★★★☆☆
Even though the lens is listed as 14.5 mm, it doesn't enlarge that much.  I would say the effect is more 14.0 or 14.2 mm.  I think this could be due to the fact that the limbal ring is of a dashed pattern and is fairly thin.

COMFORT:  ★★★★☆
These lenses are pretty comfortable. I was a bit nervous at first that these would be as bad as the A37 Hazel lenses, but I think it was just that specific pair.  The water content of these is 45%, so that's pretty high.  I really liked how comfortable these are.

NATURALNESS:   ★★★☆☆
Pretty natural looking overall.  These are not strikingly obvious and don't give a sticker like effect.  Obviously the pattern isn't that of a real iris, but the overall effect is really pretty and eye catching, that's if you were to stand talking distance.  These would be suitable for daytime as you don't need much makeup to balance them out.

great review, Sara :)
this one is very interesting! it is quite natural thanks to the spike outer rims but very artificial at the same time.
i like that the color is subtle, too. it is almost like grey!

I love how it makes your eyes look so sparkly!
Thanks for the review. I think I will consider these as they aren't so enlarging ^_^ maybe in brown or grey if they have those..

Honestly, I prefer more natural designs (no weird spirals/super thick rims/stars etc) but this isn't that bad.. =)

Sara said...

 Touche :)  I also really like super natural designs.  I really love my Adores
