GBT GC2 Brown Lens Review {Klenspop Sponsored!}~

Hello everyone!
Today I have another circle lens review for you, thanks to my lovely sponsor Klenspop! In my last post about them, I wrote more about their site, so if you're interested in that, you can see it here.

The lenses I got sent are the GBT GC2 Brown lenses. When I saw the design I thought they were super cool and unlike any others that I had before in the past. Here's the stock photo:
Taken from the Klenspop site~
I've seen designs like this before, but I've never had the opportunity to own them. Although the design seems quite intense, it actually looks really natural on the eyes! It's only when you look more closely that you notice the pattern, which I think is a cool detail.

As with my previous experience with Klenspop, the lenses came in a box.
Eyes need style too!
On the back of the box there are instructions for putting in circle lenses, which is pretty useful if you're a beginner.
I put them in differently though~
Included in the box are the lenses, as well as a lens case and tweezers! I don't use tweezers often at all, but they do seem like they would be useful. Maybe I should pick up the habit of using them.
I now have a large assortment of these tweezers, and no clue what to do with them x3
Now on to the lenses themselves~ As usual, first some basic information about them.
Brand: G&G Contact Lenses
Price: $13.00 (super cheap for contacts!)
Diameter: 14.3 mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.8 mm
Life Span: 1 Year
The lenses come in these tiny vials that are positively adorably chubby.
On the left is the chubby one, the right, a regular sized one. Isn't the difference huge? :o
Some information on the backs of the vials, mostly in Korean. Sorry that I can't translate ;~;
The design of the lenses looks very similar to the stock photo. They have a sort of vine pattern which isn't too visible at first glance, but once you look closely, it's very obvious (and pretty!) The back of the lens doesn't differ too much from the front, it's just a little bit more faded. The reason I'm pointing this out is because sometimes lenses have a sort of white-colored back in order to block out your regular eye color and make the lens color more prominent. Because these don't have that white backing, they seem very natural and thus they blend in well with my hazel eyes.

Closeup of the design~
The part of the lens isn't too huge, so you'd still be able to see the middle part of your eyes.It does however have a subtle graduation, which would make the change of color look more natural.
Of course, what use would all this be without photos of how they actually look when worn! ^_^
Firstly, in natural light~ IT was a sunny day that day, and the photos were taking in the light streaming in from the window.

The color difference between my eyes and the lenses isn't too noticeable in this lighting c:

Next, dim lighting! Mostly these show off the size of the lenses, since you can't really tell what color they are in such lighting.

You can only really see the black outline here ;~;

And finally, the lighting which shows off the lenses the best: camera flash! Of course, you wouldn't see this effect in regular life unless you're always standing in bright lights x3
I really love how my eyes look in this picture ^.^
The limbal ring doesn't look as dark in this photo as it does in others~ More of a dark brown here than a black c:

And finally, just some random photos x3
I was wearing a scarf in all of these because I didn't like what my face was doing x3 Also, hearts!
It's a very warm fuzzy scarf- I love it <3
I like both of these really high contrast photos
Especially this one
Now that all the photos are out of the way (and sorry that there are so many of them), some more writing about the lenses and their properties.
Enlargement: These aren't the most enlarging lenses that I've worn, but I like that about them. It makes your eyes look cute without having them be like an alien. If you don't wear a lot of makeup they still look fine, though I do recommend at least a bit of eyeliner so that the lenses themselves aren't too stark.

Design: The design is really pretty and natural~ As I mentioned before, it's not too 'in your face', so they aren't that unnatural c: It's also cool how they sort of look like vines.

Comfort: Now here is where unfortunately, I had a problem ;A; The right lens for some reason always drives me crazy >.> I first thought that it was a problem with my eye, since I occasionally get irritations, but when I wear my other lenses, it's not as much of a problem :/ The left one is fine however, so I'm assuming it's just a defect in that particular one. It's not too problematic, just a tad uncomfortable. Maybe eye-drops would help- I'll have to carry them around to school. The left one was super comfortable though ^_^

Overall I really like these lenses a lot, especially the design since it's oh-so unique ^_^ Get them here if you're interested! Thank you once again Klenspop!

Now, as a footnote, sorry if I look/sound super tired. College stuff hasn't been very successful so far, in terms of getting in places, and its very, very draining. I'm not sure what to do at this point... I still have places to hear from, but I'm scared >.> If I could please ask you guys, send me positive thoughts ;~; I could use them, please ;~;
Anyways, sorry for that not too happy ending. 
Thanks for reading~
