Lens Review: ICK Adora Blue

Hello all.

I finally managed to find a gap in my very busy working schedule! *le gasp*

Yes, I have finally landed a full-time job next to my other two smaller jobs (one of them I should be able to complete within this month) and this basically means that -with such a busy schedule- I simply just won't have the time to write here as often as I'd like to. Don't worry though, I will keep on writing and posting here whenever something nerdy is coming my way but -from now on, as to be expected- my posts are going to be a bit more delayed than usual since a big chunk of my time goes to work and resting, obviously. I will, however, do my best to get posts out within a reasonable timeframe since the event/photoshoot etc. took place. So with that said and done, welcome to this year's first lens review and that will be the ICK Adora Blue.

This pair of lenses have been waiting for a review since I wore them for my updated Original Casual!Germany photoshoot back in February. If you want to see how these lenses look on an actual cosplay then by all means check that photoshoot out.

Alright. Let's start this review.

Photographer: Shiro Samurai

Lenses in their vials.

The photos below are taken during a sunny day in May with clear skies and plenty of warmth for us vikings, lol. I can't remember the time of the day when these photos were taken but I want to recall that it was either noon or afternoon.

One lens in. Notice enlargement.
Natural roomlight, indoors.
Facing window, sunny.
Yellow apartment light.
Bathroom light.

Lens review:

Color: 9/10
Very clear and intense color. Great for cosplay.
Comfort: 5/10
I kept feeling them in my eyes constantly and not in a comfortable way. They were a bit stingy and even when I took them off, I felt like they were still in my eyes! UGH! But I could endure them for a few hours, if I had to. Maybe I just got an unlucky pair, who knows? But I'm not buying these again.
Design: 7/10
I like them. There is not too much going on and they're not boring either. I like that black outer ring and shade of color.
Enlargement: 5/10

There is an enlargement but it's not anything big. If you have small eyes, like me, it should look alright on you.
Naturalness: 4/10
Despite blue being a natural eye color these lenses just don't look natural to me, color-wise. Just look at that intense, deep shade of blue. I mean, how many humans out there has such an eye color? You tell me.
Opacity: 9/10

I don't need to repeat myself, do I? These are really opaque and it shows, even from a distance.

That's it for today and stay tuned for more lens reviews to come in the near future!
