Okayyyy, so this review? Yeah. It is long overdue.Specifically, it's about lenses in one of my favourite colours: violet. My Hyper Pinky/Super Pinky Violet, to be precise, which I purchased from Honey Color. (That's correct: purchased. I do still buy lenses, you guys. Haha.)
Spoiler alert: I LOVE THEM.
Enlargement: 9/10 These lenses are advertised as being 14.8 mm. However, they are made by Vassen, and to my knowledge, Vassen lenses are 14.5 mm. In any case, they definitely enlarge quite a bit, but don't seem to give me 'bug eyes'. Haha.
Colour/Design: 9.5/10 So these were bought as a replacement of sorts for my G&G GBT Violets, as they were set to expire. These definitely work in lieu of those lenses. This violet is also a light, pastel shade and are just as opaque. If you want to get nitpicky, you might say that these are a very tiny bit darker, but it's not something I really picked up upon when comparing the lenses. (The 'darkness' likely comes from the darker violet ring + 'spikes' going inward. You don't see these at all from a distance, though.)

Comfort: 9/10 Generally, I find Vassen lenses to be comfy, and these are no exception. :] The only thing is that when they do eventually dry out, they tend to dry out quickly, for me. (That's why you don't wear them for more than 8 or so hours, at the most, though.)
(Outdoors on a cloudy day; you can tell by my hair that I was caught in a thunderstorm)
So all in all, I bloody LOVE these lenses. I've had several pairs of violet lenses over the years, and these are my favourite so far. As picky as I am about this colour, the Hyper/Super Pinkys managed to please me. ♥ ♥
