(Review ★) Colorvue Fusion Grey Violet & I-Codi V3-05 Angel Eyes Blue [SPONSORED by UNIQSO]

Hello my Beauty Holics!
I'm back with another review for UNIQSO
For this month, since weather is warming up and it almost feels like summer over here,
I wanted to give some cool tone to my collections!
So I've chosen couple of cool toned lenses from one of the new series that UNIQSO got!

First one we are going to look at is from one of my favorite circle lens brand, I-Codi
Now I've only tried their wonderful series Colors of the Wind, so trying out different series was little bit hesitant, but since my past experience with this brand was so great, I went ahead and chose this one
It's called Angel Eyes series and I've got the color blue

Unlike typical bottled lenses, this comes in easy to open plastic case like this
I personally love having easier way to open the lens, since it is much safer, and you don't need too many tools to open it!

Diameter: 15mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Usage: 1 Year
Price: $22.90 USD

This lens comes in 5 colors:
Grey, Violet, Green, Brown and Blue



Comfort:  ★★★★★ / ★★★★★
Hula Effect: ★★★★★ / ★★★★★
Doughnut Effect: ☆☆★★★ / ★★★★★
Color: ☆☆★★★ / ★★★★★
Design: ★★★★★ / ★★★★★
Enlargement: ★★★★★ / ★★★★★

Comfort, I feel like I can never go wrong with how comfortable I-Codi brand is to my eyes.
Whenever I wear this series, I always get surprised by how comfortable it is, it is to the point where I can feel anything being in my eyes
I give perfect point to this category!

Hula Effect, This lens is significantly moisturizing, which allows the circle lens itself to follow eye movements around without giving any discomfort or blurriness in vision

Doughnut Effect, As I feared, since this lens is quite opaque than the other I-Codi lenses that I've tried before, when I exaggerate my eye movements, you can see the slight gap between the actual graphic of the lens and my eye
I mean it doesn't look too bad, but you do want some of this beautiful colors to blend in really nicely, without looking too fake, so I had to take some points down

Color, When I first saw this lens, I thought it would be vivid as other I-Codi lenses that I have tried on before.
However, unlike what I have expected this doesn't show up as well as I would like to, so for those people with darker colored eyes, if you are looking for a lens that is going to be very vivid in color, I do not recommend this as much.
But it does give hint of blue to my dark colored eyes and is more visible under the lights

Design,  I do love the design of this lens.
Just like its name "Angel Eyes" it does have that halo appearance when you are looking at the lens itself.
I thought it was really pretty design and it almost appears as if it is shining!!

Enlargement, This lens has one of the biggest diameter you can get in circle lens besides sclera lenses
By using dark brown rims around the outer circle, instead of giving definite enlargement and definition to your eyes, it gives more of a subtle enlargement to it, which I like very much!!

Next one we are gonna take a look at is a new brand that UNIQSO recently started to carry, called Colorvue
I have seen the name of this brand before, but I have never tried it
So I thought, hey why not try something new for fun??
And with not too many reviews of this brand's lens is floating around, I might as well as show the readers how it appears!!

This lens comes in same type of container like the previous one, so it was really satisfying for me!

Diameter: 14mm
Water Content: 55%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Usage: 3 Months
Price: $17.90 USD
$26.80 USD for 2 Pairs (6 Months)
$45.60 for 4 Pairs (1 Year)

This lens comes in 4 different colors:
Grey Blue, Yellow Green, Yellow Blue and Grey Violet



Comfort:  ☆☆★★★ / ★★★★★
Hula Effect: ★★★★★ / ★★★★★
Doughnut Effect: ★★★★★ / ★★★★★
Color: ★★★★★ / ★★★★★
Design: ★★★★★ / ★★★★★
Enlargement: ☆★★★★ / ★★★★★

Comfort, I don't know if its just me or what, but I do not have too much of good luck with 3 months disposable lenses with the comfort category.
I mean it wasn't as bad as when I tried out Flash Brand lens from my previous review, but there was slight discomfort in my eyes while I was trying on this lens, which prevented me from wearing it no longer than couple hours or so
It might be the fact how windy it has been recently, or maybe dust in the air, but I have to give 3 out of 5 for this category...

Hula Effect, Despite the fact that it felt slightly drying and uncomfortable, it didn't try to move away from my eyes
Rather, it fit the base curve of my eyes quite well, so it didn't cause any blurry vision as much as I was worried about

Doughnut Effect, Since this lens uses solid colored lines, it actually blended into my eyes really well
And since it uses Violet and Grey as the color combination, I think it kind of negate the whites of my eyes, and blended in very well

Color, Now the main reason why I chose to try this particular color out, is because I have never seen this kind of color combination in circle lens before!
I mean I got to have some fun with colors once in awhile, right?
Considering how worried I was, I actually loved the color combination of this lens!!
It didn't made my eyes to appear too scary, it actually gave that nice mysterious look
I absolutely loved the color so much, so I had to give perfect score.

Design, The design seems really nice
By using line printing, even though color combination was quite peculiar, this printing method allows any color to blend into any types of eye color very well!
I think it was good idea of not over doing with the design part as much as they did in the color, cause if they were to do that, it would have been little too much

Enlargement, This lens is actually not that big in diameter
Therefore, it appears to have more of normal size rather than giving enlargement
It is almost same size as my pupil, so there wasn't much of enlargement for me
But by using darker grey around the rim, it does give illusion of bigger eyes which is not too much
I was pretty satisfied with the effect it was giving, since I'm not big of a fan of large circle lenses...

Well that is all I have for you guys today
I hope this gave pretty good idea on what kind of lens to choose for the occasion or the effect that you want to get on daily basis
