Crystal lens vials come in different colors: violet and pink! :D 
Well, same as the other vials where you have to battle your way through opening those little bottles! GRRRRRR~ Not to mention the cracked nails you get after opening them. And I did learn my lesson. So everytime I open a vial, I always use any cloth to protect my dear nails from tearing.

My first brown lens was actually too natural that I thought it was too unnoticeable or useless(?) and my second brown lens was too artificial or unreal that I looked like stoned, alien-ish or something ㅋㅋ. So I really got meticulous in choosing my next set of brown lenses. And I did find the lens which is in the middle of being natural and being unreal. (What am I blabbing about?!) So what do I love about this lens?

❤ the color looks natural yet vibrant! (but not in a strange way! HAHA)
❤ it blends well with my natural eye color which is - - - - dark brown -__-"
❤ the size (14.2 mm) fits well with my not so small eyes. (AND YES, I FIND THOSE LENSES WITH LARGE DIAMETER STRANGE-------sorry!)
❤ the design is creatively made to look natural yet cute on the eyes

How it looks with a fa-fa-flash!

The good thing about colored lenses is that you can easily tell if you're putting it right cuz the right side of the lens is much darker than the underside. :D 
Underside up~

 TADANG~ this is the interesting part. The effects of the lenses to the eyes.
(Please pardon my eye bags and the amateur photo collage plus the uncoordinated colors used.)

I usually wear lenses for about 4-8 hours maximum. For this lens, by the time I hit 4 to 5 hours, I would get a foggy-like vision with "bokeh" effects! (Nah, just kidding--except the bokeh thingy). Since its water content is only 42%, it  easily dries up your eyes and you get the feeling of your eyes set on fire! (Now I'm exaggerating again haha) One time, I tried to wear them up to 12 hours and my eyes got really tired and sore. Yeah I know, I know it was suicidal. I was just too busy at that time! LOL I would recommend wearing them for 4 to 5 hours only. It's really advisable for you to bring eye lubricants just in case you want to use them for longer periods or bring your contact lens case so you can take them out if you already find them uncomfortable to wear.

Overall, I'm contented and happy with this lens because of its effortless natural effects yet it still gives life to my dull eyes. I also didn't have a difficult time putting them on and the size is just right for my eyes. This lens could have been the perfect lens if it didn't dry up easily~ T___T. But I would still recommend it to those girls who want to use the lens aesthetically~
