[Pinkicon] NEO Vision Cosmo Yearly Lens in Hazel Review & GIVEAWAY

It's circle lens time! I've been fortunate enough to be sent a pair of lenses from Pinkicon. Pinkicon is the largest Hong Kong based circle lens online store and they have over 300 designs and carries a number of brands. They also sell fashion wigs, eyelashes, cosmetics and accessories from known brands from Japan, Korea and Taiwan. They even sell polaroid cameras! ^^

The package comes with a Pinkicon lens wear and care instruction card and a Pinkicon business card on which their various social media handles are listed down. On the back of the card is an area where you can list down the different lenses you have and write down expiry dates for each pair of lenses you have. I find that this is an ingenious idea because honestly, if you have a lot of circle lenses on rotation, it is hard to keep track of their expiry dates. I usually throw out lenses based on their comfort level after a good number of months. I also had previously held on to certain circle lenses for more than their dates of expiry. A lens case is also included.


The lenses I'm gonna review today is the Neo Cosmo Yearly Lens in Hazel. The Neo Cosmo series (not to be confused with Cosmo Circle Lens series) are available in One Day, Weekly, Monthly and Yearly lenses. These are colored lenses that are disposed after the said amount of time.

These lenses are tri-toned, meaning this would make the color of your eyes appear to have 3 different shades all at once and gives your eyes a different kind of look, more pop of color. The shade is Hazel but it actually seems to look like a reddish brown shade and the color Hazel is defined to be brown with gray and green.

The base curve is 8.6mm and the diameter is 14.2mm however this seem to look much smaller than the 14.0mm lenses I have. If it wasn't written on the label, I would think that the diameter on these lenses are 13.8mm.

The lenses are really pretty but are a bit unnatural for me because one, the color stands out too much that it kinda looks weird to me and second, it doesn't have a dark and thick outer ring which makes the eyes dolly. It is understandable since these aren't really circle lenses but colored contacts lens. I'm just so used to a lens that makes my eyes look dolly. But those things aside, these lenses are actually comfortable to wear. They may not be as comfortable as some of my other circle lenses, but I can wear it for four hours without discomfort so for me, that's pretty good. 

Comfort: ♥♥♥/5
