These lenses were kindly sponsored by the super fancy LoveShoppingholics. (Check out the site: it's so well-organized. o.o ) I haven't tried blue lenses in a long time, as indeed, it is difficult to find a blue that is flattering on me. When I found these in my parcel, though, I was game to see if these would suit me. :]
In the end, the colour looks pretty good, but I am nit-picky and very particular about my lenses, so.... read on!
Enlargement: 8/10 This series is often listed as being 14.8 mm. (I'm pretty sure it's 14.2, though. Haha.) In any case, the enlargement effect is closer to a lens of a 14.5 mm DIA.
Colour/Design: 7.5/10 Allow me to begin with an explanation of this colour: it is a true blue, with a hint of green to it. In sunlight, verryyy vibrant, as the pics show. In almost any other lighting, the colour is dark/subtle. I mean, you can generally still tell they're blue, but the colour doesn't 'pop' the same way in medium or low light. :/ I like the vibrant, deep blue, in daylight, but you just do not always see it, and I'm not a fan of dark colours.

Comfort: 20/10 Comfort-wise. here's a chart of all the brands I've tried: Neo and Hana SP&Eye > EOS > G&G/Dueba/Vassen > Geo. That is, Neo lenses feel almost truly like nothing when I wear them.
So in conclusion, if this blue were more opaque, then maybe it would be vibrant in any lighting, and it would be a more loved lens. Unfortunately, this is not the case. And while they look great a lot of the time, colour-wise, it's not consistent enough for me. Somehow, though, they've still grown on me a bit. <3 Haha.
