Review: EOS new Adult (J-203) Brown

Okayyy, so I'm finally catching up on my lens reviews. : D  I now have just two pairs left to review. (I'll have to remember to not procrastinate next time...)  Anyway, the lenses in this review were kindly sponsored by Kiwiberry1's Collection.  And I have no qualms about saying that Kiwiberry is absolutely one of my favourite shops out there-- whether I'm buying lenses or having them sponsored. Amazing customer service, amazing variety, and the shipping's pretty good coming from Canada to the US. <3  Uh.... now for the review!

(Also, please excuse my lazy/awful hair: it got wet yesterday in the rain and I didn't bother to straighten it again...)

(I am an intrigued pirate)

Enlargement: 7/10 As I mentioned, these are fairly enlarging: the black circle gives these an 'oomph' compared to the old Adult series, which has a light, super-subtle lavender ring

Colour/Design: 7.5/10 Alright-y then~~. So for starters, I kinda' really wanted these for two reasons: 1.) because in the very few pics I've seen on these in reviews, the brown looked light and very pretty, and 2.) because I do have the original Adult (E-203) Brown (which are my favourite brown lenses ever) and want to compare it to the redesigned version (J-203 Brown). Suffice to say, yes, these lenses' colour is rather light and fairly visible in most lightings. And compared to the 'old' Adult Brown, these are a more golden/yellow brown, more enlarging, and just overall more dolly.


- EOS Adult (E-203) Brown vs. EOS new Adult (J-203) Brown -

Comfort: 10/10 EOS lenses = wonderful candyland gumdrops of comfort for my eyes. : D

(The contrast is... 'off' to say the least. Haha.)

In conclusion, I like these lenses. I may very well grow to love them once my original Adult Brown expire. :33 But for now, I prefer my old Adult Brown: they perfectly straddle the line between noticeable and natural for me. (These new ones jump headlong into 'noticeable', but are still somewhat natural.) I love these lenses, but I'm not yet in love with these lenses. ;P ((And on a weird note, my mother pointed out to me that they turn out almost the exact same shade as my skin colour in any given picture. Haha.))

And here are the extra pics, as usual: One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, and Eight.
You can watch the video review here on Youtube, or view it below. 

P.S. Cor-- YouTube always seems to pick the most awkward video preview pics for me. D:  Yikes...


  1. I'm glad I held off on buying these until I read your review! They look a lot lighter than I expected them to, I was expecting a much much lighter "honey" shade. I recently bought some DollyEye browns so i'll wait to see how those pan out first. I think these look super cute and dolly on you. If I didn't know you were wearing lenses i'd have to do a double take!

  2. I love these on you. They're quite bright but still look natural.
    I've been going through all your lens reviews because I want to try enlargement lenses myself, even though I already have big eyes lol.
    Love your blog xx

  3. Avalon- Thank you! And yeah, I was kinda' expecting a lighter colour, too. Haha. Like a pastel gold-brown. (Maybe similar to the light honey you were imagining...) Either way, yeah: very dolly.

    Naomi- Haha- do as you must. Browse to your heart's content. (Just be warned that as calendar dates go backward, so does my photogenicity. Haha.) Thank you muchly for the kind comment: I'm rather enamoured with your blog, myself. <3

  4. Ooh, these are really natural and pretty!

    Gotta agree though, EOS is the most comfortable brand by far.

  5. All i have to say is that i'm leaning towards these as one of my new lenses.. >__< thanks for the review.

  6. great review! I've never actually tried any of the adult series lens.. actually I take that back I have the newer green adults but I haven't open them yet >_< p.s. your hair is getting so long!!! I love it!

  7. how pretty! these are a huge improvement from the old adult series.
    I'd buy the new adults but they're not huge and googly enough for me hahaha xD

  8. Re: OMG!!! ahhh! really?? do you know where they sell the bigger g307's? and do they come in prescription? I must must must have them!

  9. I have these and they are okay to where when I don't want to be over the top. They're very light and yellow, which I like.
