review // Fynale J01 Honoo Green *

April 9, 2014

Hello, everyone! Review time again! When I did the shoot for these, I shot a total of five pairs of lenses, including this one. FIVE! PAIRS! In one day! (Which explains why my eyes are a bit red in these photos.. ehehe.) Anyway. This pair is quite different from all my other ones, since it's a color that I haven't worn in a long time (the last time was in 2012) - green! And such a vivid shade of green, too. These are Fynale J01 Honoo Green Circle Lenses from LoveShoppingholics.

The lenses in the case.

Up close! Such a vivid color!

Suddenly, a GUMI, for color comparison ehehe.

When I first saw the lenses on LoveShoppingholics, the thing that caught my attention the most was the deep green color. Since I was looking for green lenses that I could use for cosplay (for GUMI, ehehe), I wanted a pair that would be visibly green even against my dark brown eyes and in low light settings. While searching, I came across this pair, which was a fairly new design when I chose them. The design itself isn't anything new, but the color..! Only, these are more of a forest green shade, a deeper green compared to GUMI's apple green eyes. It's fine though, since at least I have no problems with the green showing up in photos.

Super enlarging at 15mm, but for some reason these look more like 14.8mm to me.. hmm.

COMFORT: ★★★★★
Despite having such an opaque color (most lenses with this much color tend to be thicker and uncomfortable to wear), I can wear these without any problems at all. I haven't tried wearing them for more than 5 hours though, so I can't say if these are okay for whole day wear. I'll try wearing them at a con soon, to see.

OVERALL: ★★★★☆
Super nice choice of lenses for cosplay / dressing up. I very rarely wear lenses with a diameter bigger than 14.5mm these days, but I think this is a good size for cosplay, since most characters have huge eyes. Not saying that these aren't okay for daily wear; if you feel you can pull off wearing this bright color out, then go ahead ;)

A few reminders:
☆ It is your responsibility to minimize the risk of wearing lenses, and you are best advised to consult your eye doctor beforehand. Kindly please read the wear & care guide carefully to ensure proper handling of lenses. The rule of thumb for lenses: if you experience any discomfort, remove the lens immediately.
☆ Though the lenses were sponsored by LoveShoppingholics, everything written here is 100% my honest opinion.
☆ All photos used in this review belong to me. Please do not take them without my permission!!

By the way, just a tiny reminder - I have a LoveShoppingholics giveaway up on my Facebook Page! One person will win a pair of contact lenses, in any design of their choice! Giveaway ends on the 10th, go check it out! Thanks for reading ☆
