Circle lens review: EOS G-320 Sapphire from mukuCHU

Since I'm still recovering I thought I would be a bit more proactive and decided to do a review of circle lenses I purchased from mukuCHU.

Now I originally got these because mukuCHU sells these as the Gossip series, and my older readers might know I owned Gossip Grey last year and it was one of my favorite pair of lenses. Fact is though, these aren't the same as the Gossip series.

These were my Gossip Grey:

This is the EOS G-320 in Sapphire:
You can see that immediately the design is completely different!

They're not quite 14.5mm either. You can compare them next to the King Brown and see it's smaller.

Here you can see that in my hand that the design doesn't take up the whole lens and is kind of disappointing. I took this picture with flash though, so you can see how pretty the color is at the least. 

Now on to the pictures of them being worn. Although I was disappointed they weren't really the Gossip series, I still wanted vibrant blue lenses!
One eye in, one eye out. You can see there's still good enlargement despite the design not taking up the whole lens.
Both eyes in.
 Both eyes in, with makeup.

- Pretty and unique color usually not offered by lenses
- Comfortable, as per usual with lenses by EOS
- Less dramatic than the original Gossip design, so it is more wearable everyday versus on special occasions

- Not the original lenses I intended to purchase
- The design doesn't take up the whole lens, so they're smaller than the diameter
- EOS took a long time to create the order, so I didn't receive these for a few months (no fault to mukuCHU)

They weren't what I was expecting since the design was different, but I'm not mad about it! I actually do like these lenses because they are different from what I was expecting. They are extremely comfortable as how EOS lenses are usually on me.

Want these lenses?
They come in 14.5mm or 15.00mm diameters and many colors for $20 from mukuCHU.
