Good evening everyone! I know it's been so long since I blogged, I suppose there's no need to address it anymore, by now everyone must be used to it :/ Well I only have 30 minutes to type this up if I want to stay on schedule, as you may guess I'm quite busy. In all honesty however, I also waste alot of time surfing around on the net when I could be productive haha.
Anyhow, luckily I can post a new review, I hope you'll enjoy it! These lenses were sent to me by Shoppingholics.com for review purposes, all following opinions are my own honest assessments. These lenses come from a brand I hadn't tried before, and they have yellow elements in them, so I was very curious to try them out!

Lenses in the bottle
|Origin: Korea |
Diameter : 15mm
Water Content : 45%
Base Curve : 8.6mm
Life Span : 1 year disposal
What I first noticed about these lenses was the thinness of them, well some lenses are a touch thicker than others. Thinner ones are harder to apply (for me) but I generally find them to be less noticeable and more comfortable. Combined that with the fact that the Luxury Babe 12's have a 45% water content, it makes them very easy to wear with minimal drying.

These lenses are 15mm, so of course you get great enlargement. But they do not rely on a dark outer ring to create enlargement! With the more natural pattern on the lens, the enlargement is more subtle. Not natural, but not "BAM these are lenses!" either, if you get what I mean XD
Now as for the color, it is a grey lens with yellow too. I think this yellow color pattern in the grey would make these lenses perfect for lightening up darker eyes. On my already light eyes it has an interesting effect as the yellow looks quite light. From far away the color is somewhat indescribable like hazel mixed with gray.
I was able to wear these lenses all day very easily! I did need to apply eye drops a couple times, but I wore them out walking for almost an hour and they didn't dry out (even when walking through BBQ smoke DX) But as always I try not to wear the lenses too long, I would say 8 hours in one day is plenty enough haha.
One thing I experienced with these lenses that I never did before was the so called "derp eye". I mean when I looked at my photos after uploading I found a one where my left lenses was off my eye! Luckily my eyeball shape is good for lenses, but these ones to wonder so keep a mirror at hand. But they are so comfortable you may easily forget you are wearing them hehe!
I had a good experience with these lenses overall, the comfort and enlargement were perfect to me and I had no problem wearing them for 8 hours. However the color would be more lovely on darker eyes I think, these will be eye catching on light eyes but not everyone will like the yellow if they have blue eyes (it may look nice with green tho!).

And something different - dark lips!
