Lens Review: Flora Diva Pink

Yo all!

I'm back with another lens review for you guys hope you don't mind too much and this time, I'll be reviewing the Flora Diva Pink lenses. These lenses were originally bought for one of my planned genderbend cosplays, namely Milla Maxwell from Tales of Xillia. At first I thought Milla had red eyes (as I also mentioned here) until I, much later, took a closer look and realized that her eyes are actually more pink than red. Sadly, I didn't start working on said cosplay this year, despite getting the lenses for the costume. Life just had other plans and I, other priorities. The good news is that I can and really should try the lenses out -before they expire too, lol- and see if they are a good fit for my Male!Milla Maxwell cosplay, whenever I start working on it, that is. So without further ado, welcome peeps to the last lens review of 2017 - Flora Diva Pink!

As expected by now, have the distance photo featuring my "outfit of the day". This time, I tried to do something new and went for a more fashion expressive, cute, boy-ish look.

Lens review:

Color: 7/10
I'm not a fan of pink at all but the color is of a soft, nice shade, yes.
Comfort: 7/10
I felt them in my eyes but had no issues with them like dryness or itchiness and whatnot. I only wore them during the review but I bet I could wear them for a con day too.
Design: 6/10
A clear, pink color with black streaks going towards the pupil. Not one of my favorite styles but pleasing to look at.
Enlargement: 5/10
Small enlargement, looks better on you as well if you have small eyes.
Naturalness: 4/10
Color-wise these are not natural at all, I mean who has pink eyes since birth? No one. At least the black streaks and the softer shade of pink help these look a bit more natural to non-cosplayers, compared to red and neon colored lenses for example.
Opacity: 8/10
These cover my real color really well, I must say. But I don't like it how the lens pattern just stops abruptly towards the pupil and plenty of your own color shines through. Many lenses have this, I know it's normal, but on just these lenses it's just so visible to me.
