Lens Review: Neo Sunflower Aqua

Hello everyone.

Summer is here and with it came my first official holiday off my job, the Scandinavian Midsummer. With some precious time on my hands, I decided to do something useful with it (even here on my blog) so today, I will be sharing my next lens review with you guys! This time, the spotlight will shine on one of the more prettier lenses that I own, enter the Neo Sunflower Aqua lenses. Alrighty, let's get this review started and happy Midsummer/Solstice everyone!

Lenses in their vial bottles.


Just like before I jumped on my bike and biked my way to Shiro Samurai's place during a clear and warm day in May. A perfect weather for lens reviews. Hence the reason why I pulled 3 reviews in succession that day and this was to save plenty of time and planning with bro. Yes, this is the 2nd review out of 3 and the last one will show up soon enough. Now, let's see what these beauties look like when worn.

Lens review:

Color: 7/10
They color shows up clearly but it's not an intense one. I personally dig the turquose shade in these.
Comfort: 9/10
One of the most comfortable pairs I've reviewed. Period. I barely felt them in my eyes which is always a big plus and I bet I wouldn't have issues wearing these during a full con day either.
Design: 7/10
I like the subtle, flower inspired pattern in them. Simply and pretty is all I have to say.
Enlargement: 4/10
The enlargement in these is fairly small. My small eyes approves.
Naturalness: 6/10
They look both natural and not-so-natural at the same time. The lenses have an interesting, bright color that certainly won't pass for those who knows what to look after. But their more subtle design might fool some from a distance though. After all, there are people out there with naturally bright eye colors. I've run into a few myself and damn, those shades really catches your eye!
Opacity: 8/10
Great color coverage and it was much better than I expected it to be at first, that's for sure. These cover my natural eye color well but I think persons with darker eye colors might find their real color peeping through the pattern more than mine did. But yeah, I'm just making a wild guess here.

Alright. Now there is only one more lens review to go from the May batch and after that, I can start posting about other stuff again, whatever that will be. I frankly have no idea right now as my nerd plans got drastically changed recently. Until then, have a nice day and don't forget to bask yourself in the summer feeling while it's still around. Stay cool!
