[mukuCHU] EOS G-320 Violet

I'm bringing you another lenses review, kindly sponsored by mukuchu.com I immediately jumped all over it when I saw the colour - violet! I wanted to have violet eyes ever since I was a little tyke, so I was really excited to try it out and show you guys how it looks on me.


Name: EOS G-320 Violet
Price: US$ 24 for 1 pair
Base curve: 8.6 mm
Diameter: 14.5 mm
Water content: 38%
Prescription: 0.00 to -10.00
Life span: 1 year disposal

Design and colour ★★☆☆☆☆☆
The outer limbal ring is very faint and thin, which is the reason G-320 appears less anime-like but at the same time, it looks very natural if you choose a colour that's fairly close to your original irides.



Once popped in, the lavender changes into an indigo... I wasn't expecting this, a shame that my dark irides turn everything topsy turvy.


Enlargement ★★☆☆☆☆☆
As usual, I got the 14.5 mm size. It gives me an adequate enlargement, however, it isn't as enlarging as the other 14.5 mm lenses that I own due to the faint outer limbal ring. You may opt for the 15 mm version - WM-320 - if you feel the effect that 14.5 mm gives is too toned down.




Comfort ★★★★☆☆☆
It takes a little while for them to adjust everytime I pop them in. Once they align, I didn't notice any discomfort from wearing them even for pronounced periods. I do carry eyedrops with me though and I use it every now and then.


PRODUCTS USED


FACE
♥ Castledew Watershot Base #3
♥ Stage Cosmetics Photo Pro Foundation 02 Take 1

EYES
♥ Lunasol Scent Form Eyes 03 Black Tea
♥ Beauty Rush Wet/Dry Shadow Smokin’
♥ Kate Super Sharp Liner BK-1

If you want Japanese lenses but balk at the price, EOS G-320 series would be the perfect alternative - it is the equivalent to Candy Magic's Gossip line (promo image shown below)! I have yet to see the EOS G-320 series anywhere except for mukuchu.com, so head on over if you find it to your liking.

i have the same problem with my purple lense, when i put them in...they tend to be dark, and if i use flash photography they just looks blue.....

Sara Mari said...

Oh the enlargement is pretty nice for a "natural" style lense, and the color is lovely^^/

LOL I love that you used the phrase "little tyke"  I think the lenses look quite nice on you even though the color changes.  btw the upper lashes you're wearing in this post look great!

Milida Diaz said...

Those contacts look amazing on you! You have such a pretty face, do you wear contacts often? I have never been able to wear contacts and be comfortable. :\

Nice Babe, Looks natural and the enlargement effect is amazing too. :D

Anna said...

Yeah, you definitely need to get PROPER violet lenses, like, I just looked at the lenses and could clearly cognize that these aren't opaque, you can clearly tell that from promotional pictures. Well, I still recommend you to try out EOS J203 Adult, the new Adult line, they'll definitely cover your brown.

Hi Milida,

I couldn't find your blog when I googled, but I did come across this YT channel. Is it yours by any chance?

Thanks for the compliment! I only wear lenses during the weekend and when I have some extra time to pop them in or else I'd forgo them. They don't feel that drying to me.
