†Review- Maplelens Vassen Butterfly Pink ~

Hello! I was approached by MapleLens to review a pair of lenses by them, so that's what I have for you today.
Before I get on with the review I just want to make it clear that these are my 100% honest opinions, and I have no reason to give anything false-positive information! Nobody has accused me of this, but I felt the need to make that clear unless it wasn't obvious! I wouldn't lie about a product that I could just as easily get from a different sponsor. These review are real deal opinions, okay~!

This is the stock image for the lens!

These lenses are $21.90 USD and come in other colors as well!

This is the packaging it came in! Incidentally the free lens case that was included was pink too! Incredible. 

These are the lenses! 

As you can see they are very similar to the stock image. The pink is a bit more warm and orange toned but it's basically accurate.

This is my natural eye color with no filter or lens. Just a photo taken in natural lighting!
Excuse my eyebrows, I was doing a costest prier to taking these photos haha.

This is what both lenses look like in! The pink color of the lens is being battled by my greenish grey eyes, but they manage to still show up decently pink regardless. I'm a LITTLE biased because I have another pair of pink lenses that are specifically meant for light eyes, so they are more vivid, but I have to say that I quite like the design of these. I can see myself wearing them casually or for subtle pink eyes.

This is just with one lens in to compare the lens and my natural eye directly. I do like these for a casual makeup.

Here is a full face with the lenses in! 
These lenses have a diameter of 14.5mm and a water content of 42%. Their base curve is 8.6 and they last a year.

☾Detailed Review☽

Look: ✖✖✖
I'm conflicted because I do really love the design of these lenses, but my natural eye color makes them look really muddy from far away. They are pink with a yellow ring around the keyhole. It's hard to develop a solid opinion on them! I don't dislike them, although if you have light eyes, I'd advice a different color in the same Vassen Butterfly line.

Feel: ✖✖✖✖✖
These feel great! No issues. They have a decently high water content and I don't have any sort of weird lens shifting or tunnel vision. 

Quality: ✖✖✖
These are printed really nicely although I feel that they could use a more vibrant pink. They are muddy on my eyes and I cant imagine them showing up very brightly on dark eyes.

Overall: ✖✖✖✖
That's a bit of a generous score, but I REALLY loved the actual graphic design of this lens. The yellow in the middle saved them a bit for me haha. Aside from the lenses themselves, the company IS really nice and great at communicating. I ordered these Friday and got them Monday, so SUPER fast shipping for a lens store not based in America!

I would really like a chance to wear some more lenses from this store. I feel that I might have chose a color that was destined to look less attractive on my eye color than another might have.
Thank you so much Maplelens for the chance! I hope you pick me to review for you again.
