Lens review: G&G Blossom Brown

Hello hello! <3

I am back with new eyes! This time it's light brown eyes, the G&G Blossom Brown. They go under the name Dueba/Barbie Girly Chip Soy Latte as well; it also seems like they can be found under the Girly Chip name by brands such as Royal Vision and Puream - so many!
I opened them just before Desucon Frostbite because I figured that they would be a good fit for my Sasha Blouse cosplay, and so they were! :'D I'm also wearing them to school every now and then for casual/natural looks. 
According to the bottles, their diameter is 14.5mm and their base curve is 8.8mm. I don't actually know the base curve of my eyes because I can't remember that my optician ever told me about it but I assume it would be around 8.6mm because it's the usual. I don't have problems with 8.8mm BC contacts though, the G&G Blossom Brown and my beloved EOS Max Pure Gray both have an 8.8mm base curve and they are really comfy, I have no problems getting them into my eyes either. I don't feel a difference. Actually, if I hadn't checked the base curve of the G&G Blossom Brown, I would never have guessed that they have 8.8mm.
I know. Everyone will tell you that base curve is really important. Honestly, I don't have problems with it so I don't know why I should worry... ._.

Anyways, enough talking for now! >_<
Pics are taken by the fabulous Shiro Samurai and are unedited to show real colors. <3

Bottles, feat. my prescription if anybody cares. x)
I think the left lens might be on the "wrong" side but it's hard to tell. :/

Okay, time to pop them into my eyes! The best moment! Could I have a drumroll please? :'D

One lens in, check out enlargement. ;)
And now both lenses. <3
These first pics were taken outdoors.

Facing the light (it's cloudy)
Halfway turned away from the light.
Turning my back to the light.
Facing a corner, halfway turned toward the light.
Facing the same corner, turned away from the light.
On the "shadow" side of the building, it's still cloudy. :(
We then went back inside, took the indoors pics, started doing something... and then ran back outside because there was some sunlight. <3

Looking into the sun.
(sorry about derpy eyes, sunlight kinda BURNS.)
And then the indoors pics.

In the staircase, under horrible yellow light.
Facing a window.
In the corridor. The light is white and weak.
Flash pic! (taken in some dark corner...)
Bathroom light. :C
Side way glance. (facing a window, cloudy sky)
Ah the joys of doing a lens review on a cloudy day... and running outside as soon as there is sunlight. And then by the time you are outside, the clouds come back. Fffffffuuuuuuuu. 
But I don't know, it's funny. :'D

Wait, don't go! I still have a distance pic!

Gotta love my owl sweatshirt from Romwe. <3
In short:

Color: 6/10
This isn't a vivid color, and it blends toward the middle. But it does show as brown and the shade is pretty. <3
Design: 9/10
I think I'm definitely biased toward flower patterns... I especially love this one because it's subtle so it works for more natural looks as well, but if you come close you can spot the hints of petals in my eyes... :'D It also gives a slight twist to the shape, making it more original.
Opacity: 6/10
They're not very opaque, and color kinda disappears toward the middle.
Enlargement: 8/10
They're fairly big, but they don't eat up my eyes either. They can work for natural looks and more fashion-y looks, depending on your make-up.
Comfort: 9/10
I can wear them for long hours without feeling them. <3
Naturalness: 6/10
Not horribly unnatural, but they are a bit too big to be anything else than lenses.

And here ends today's review!
Bye-bye, until next time! <3
