[Contact lens review] EOS dark ice 2 tone green

Hello! Hope you're all doing well!

Today I'm back with a contact lens review (been a while >_<;) and will be reviewing the EOS dark ice 2 tone series in the color green. (apparently the EOS ice series and the DARK ice series are different)

These lenses were from and retail for around $23.00 USD. 
Please ignore the fact that the lens bottle says dollyeye rather than the EOS bottle. I did email and did some research and turns out it is another company that sells lenses and just uses their own labelling. These are still authentic EOS lenses and is safe to wear.

Here are some of the details of the lens:
  • Diameter (DIA) : 14.8-15.0MM
  • Base Curve (B.C) : 8.6mm
  • Water Content : 38%
  • One year expiry
  • Comes in various prescriptions from -0.00(plano) to -10.00
  • Comes in 6 different colors: Blue. Grey/Gray, Green, Brown, Pink, Purple

So let's begin with the review! ^_^)/
Gonna try keep this as simple as possible but as detailed as I can ouo)/

Color & Pattern
The color really stands out on my dark eyes and you can see the design/pattern of the lens. These lens does have an icy design blending toward the pupil and is also the same color  but slightly darker at the limbal ring. 

lens in different lighting (click to enlarge)
It gives more of a glistening crystal look as the design is more focused on the outside of your iris where the limbal ring is and therefore definitely does not give so much of natural look BUT at the same not to creepy. I have been asked on one occasion if my eyes glow in the dark because the colors do look like the green for glow in the dark objects hahaha!
Overall pretty :D (actually got complimented when strolling around in the makeup section of the department store ^__^)

lens vs no lens (click to enlarge - sorry about the choppy pics >_<;)
Not much of an enlarging effect because the design does not have a dark limbal ring to give that enlarging effect. Despite the large diameter - without the dark limbal ring, it blends with the eye whites more than with the pupil.

Can see the pattern&color showing on the eye whites. 
I've worn these lenses twice now and I've noticed that sometimes I'd feel a grit or sudden discomfort even when I'm just home,talking with friends or driving. Not sure if because of me or my surroundings but I've experienced these sudden discomfort once in a while for the two times I've worn it. 
Heavy wise - not so much. They're soft and somewhat light, however you do feel that you are wearing something.
Hydration wise- not so bad considering it has a water content of 38%. It did hold up for approximately 3-4 hours until it started feeling dry.
Overall in the end minus the discomfort and slight weight, they're comfy to wear for the average 8 hours.

Color : 4 / 5
Enlarging : 2.5 / 5
Comfort : 3.5 / 5
Price : 3.5 / 5

I do recommend these lens if you're going for a great payoff in color and not so much in enlarging
Would definitely wear these out again and update if I still experience the discomforts still and would love to try other colors as well! *^*)/

Available to purchase HERE AT LENSVILLAGE ^__^)v

Until then~
Stay well & take care!
