Heyyy guys!I'm here with a circle lens review!(dun dun dun) I haven't done one of those in quite awhile, right?And this is my first review for the new year!How exciting! This review is sponsored by LoveShoppingholics and will also include my first ever giveawayyyyyayayay !
LoveShoppingholics contacted me about doing a review for them as well as a giveaway and I rather happily said sureeee! I haven't done a circle lens review in probably months and that isn't because I don't like them anymore I simply have about...25 pairs.

A little background on LoveShoppingholics, they started up in 2008 and they are located in Malaysia. They have quite a wide variety of lenses from more well known brands like Geo and Vassen to lesser known brands like Fynale and LuxuryBabe. Their site is uber adorable and they were quite friendly and quick to respond to my emails. 

(please excuse my craptastic lighting in these initial pics. it gets so dark so early here during the winter)

The lenses came adorably wrapped quite safely!

The lenses themselves were bubble wrapped and the package came with a cute little card, a lens case and another velcro hair thing to add to my giant collection of velcro hair things.

Design: 9/10 I actually really like this design but I'm a bit conflicted on it. While I lovvvvveeee the halo effect you get with these lenses(they sort of remind me of the EOS Ice Grey Circle Lens) I do wish they were a bit more opaque. They really do blend beautifully in my opinion with my brown eyes and the limbal ring is gorgeous. They make for a sort of natural but kind of magical looking lens effect.
Comfort: 7/10 Alot of my most recent circle lenses really haven't been very comfortable and lately I have been wearing circle lenses less and less. Due to this I think my eyes were extra sensitive to how much thicker circle lenses are compared to the Freshlook Sterling Greys I wear on the daily.  These lenses are okay in comfort but I can feel them for quite some time after initially putting them in. 
Enlargement: 8.5/10 These lenses aren't huge at 14.5mm but they are big enough for me. Also, being that the limbal ring isn't totally solid the enlargement effect isn't gigantic. 
Overall: 8.5/10 These lenses are pretty and fairly natural. I love that they are a tricolor lens and the halo effect is gorgeous. I wish they were a bit more comfortable but I wish that with all circle lenses.
