LENS REVIEW: EOS Pop C Dark Grey G204 *Sponsored*

I'm kind of late on this review and I'm really sorry.  Kiwiberry1-Collection kindly sponsored me these lenses and it should have been up a week or so ago.  But, it's up now..yay!  I really am sorry for the late post up.

Anyhow..Kiwiberry-collection is currently (almost always) has sales going on and alot of the time she extends the sales a few extra days!  Right now she's holding a 60% off sale on already reduced items so go check it out.  I highly recommend this site and her business since she first started.  She's always very prompt and professional and she is based out of Canada.  :)

The lens I'm going to review for today is a darker lens, almost black.  EOS Pop C Dark Grey.  Code number  G204.




EOS POP C DARK GREY (G204) REVIEW:

COLOUR & DESIGN: ★★★/5 

It is quite a standard lens design.  This lens is 2 tone with black as the dominant colour, roughly taking up about 60% of the design and the dark grey at 40%.   The colour is dark, but not as dark as a pure black lens.  Imo the grey kind of helps it to look a little less alien-like, but still striking nonetheless.  Does that make sense?

ENLARGEMENT: ★★
1/2/5
Although at 14.5mm, these lens aren't as enlarging as I thought they'd be despite how bold the limbal ring is. 

Still enlarging, but not as scary.  I find that with most lenses that have a black ring don't stand out so much because it's black, but more so because the edge of the colour or pattern is so sharp.  Sharp, black, lenses are such a dead giveaway, because it's such an intense contrast to the sclera.

COMFORT:  ★★★★/5
Very comfortable :).  No complaints!

NATURALNESS:   ★
★/5
Not natural I say, but not unnaturally scary.  Surprisingly I didn't need to wear too much makeup with these.  Black, cateye liner is sufficient in my book!  These lenses are more noticeable in flash photos..they kind of remind me of Geo Angel Grey.

wow, great definition!
i think single or two tone colored tones look even bigger than multi colored ones. :)

Wow the greys are so dark it's almost black! I have the browns and even they were dark! Still very dolly as a lens though :P
