      AM-014 in 16mm, IB-006 in 16mm, AS-010 in 14mm, AS-002 in 12mm, IB-015 in 12mm

      * When did you order?
      December 26th, 2012

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      I think so. For urethane eyes they are very affordable, and I did order during an event so the eyes were 20% off, but all five pairs have defects.

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Yes. I think the colors shown on the website are pretty accurate too.

      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      For the most part. They are all very pretty.

      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)

      Positive:
      - Great price for urethane eyes
      - Just as beautiful as in the promotional photos

      Negative:
      - All five pairs have visible bubbles in at least one eye

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      If they have another sale, I might.

      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)

      Beautiful eyes, very affordable for urethane. I can't see any obvious defects in them. On the other hand, the color wasn't quite accurate. I coincidentally wanted a grayer color to begin with, so I'm happy, but others might not be!

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Yes--I'm about to put in an order for my next doll's eyes.

      * When did you order?

      Jan. 2013, Koma GO

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Price was GREAT and the quality was very, very good. I was surprised. I took a chance, since you can't go too wrong at that price, but they were really great eyes--no flaws that I could see --I have to admit that I didn't look closely... and some of the eyes I ordered are TINY, so I can barely see anything, particularly when in a doll... but I didn't notice any bubbles. Great colors and detail.

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?

      Close, I think. Monitors can shift things around. I have a blue pair that I thought were more grey in the picture, but it's difficult to tell with blues and greys when they get very pale... so it's not unusual or unexpected.

      * Were you satisfied with the product?

      Yes! In fact, I'm ordering more through another GO!

      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)

      Price! How can you beat that price??? And the variety of colors is amazing. And the quality is incredible, considering the price! Speed of order is pretty good, considering that some urethane eyes can take a year to get from other companies!!!

      * Would you buy more from this company?

      I have already ordered more in a GO! :D

      Yes! They look exactly like on the pictures. I'm really suprised!

      Definitely!
      Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      Excellent quality and unique design, but they are smaller than usual 14mm. Still love them though!

      Very.
      Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product.
      They take a while to ship, but it's worth it if you can endure the wait. The boxes are so cute. >w<
      Makoeyes run smaller than others, so I had to go up a size, but I knew that to begin with so it was no big deal.
      Would you buy more from this company?
      Yes, I'm already planning to.
       
    8. What did you order?
      Ib-021 and Owl-010 eyes, both in 14mm


      When did you order?
      December 3, 2014 (shipped using airmail December 29th, arrived January 23rd...didn't like thinking they were lost, will join group order or pay for EMS next time)

      Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Absolutely, they're so gorgeous in person.

      Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      I'd say the colors were a teensy bit more vibrant, but for the most part, yes.

      Were you satisfied with the product?
      Absolutely.

      Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      No negatives that I can think of, but as far as positives go, they are really beautiful and I adore the little tiny glittery sparkles in each eye.

      Would you buy more from this company?
      Definitely!
       
    9. Woah shipping sounds like it takes a really long time. Did anyone order using the small packet ship option? If so how long does it usually take? I'm curious and very excited because i recently placed an order. These will be my first urethane eyes.
       
    10. SugarBenki - I used once small pocket option, it was more than one year ago and it took around two weeks to arrive to me. Everything was okay, there was no damage to box or eyes.

      * What did you order?
      I ordered from them twice, together 13 pairs. Different sizes and colours.

      * When did you order?
      2013-12-24 and 2014-10-16

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Yes, beautiful eyes and very good quality. Only one eye had small white dot on pupil, besides that they were perfect.

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Bright colours were darker in person than in company photos, but maybe my computer settings just show them too bright.

      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      Yes.

      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      Eyes are well made, very nice colours, very good price.

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Yes, definitely!

      Takes awhile to be shipped. But the eyes are vibrant and stunning with a cute box to boot. Definitely worth the wait.

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Definitely!

    12. * What did you order?
      OWL 06, OWL 13, AM 08, AM 21, MOON 21, MOON 13, GL 15

      * When did you order?
      October 2014 + September 2015

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Yes, they are a perfect middle between simple cheap eyes and the more expensive ones like ED.

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      Kind of. I find it hard to figure out the actual color of the eyes between their own sales pictures, owner photos and monitor settings. Especially with subtle differences like a teal that is more green or a teal that is more blue it is very hard to pick the right color if you have specific ideas of what you want.
      That being said, I loved all eyes I ordered no matter if they exactly fit my ideas or not.

      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      Yes. The eyes are very beautiful.

      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      +High quality and I have seen no flaws, scratches or anything.
      +Well packaged and I love the little boxes they come in, great for storing eyes that are not in use.
      +I used the Small Packet shipping fee, which is so cheap it's an amazing way to save some money if one can wait.
      +They can add black pupils to eyes that don't have them by default.
      -Delivery can take a while. My orders took around 2 months, from ordering to receiving them.

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      If I need more eyes I will definitely buy from Mako again!

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Yes.

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      No, the color is far more blue in person.

      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      To be honest, I was a bit disappointed in the color when I opened the package. The craftsmanship is perfectly fine but the color is not exactly what I had in mind.

      * Tell us some of the positives and negatives about this product (optional)
      I used the cheaper shipping method and it still arrived quickly!

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      I am very particular about colors, so I would be a bit hesitant to order multiple eyes again.

      IB-003 (14mm)

      * When did you order?

      * Was the quality appropriate for the price, in your opinion?
      Yes, the quality is superb and fairly consistent.

      * Did the item look like the sales pictures?
      No, the eyes are a deep magenta and barely have any red in them.

      * Were you satisfied with the product?
      No, I was looking for a red/pink shade that leaned heavily to red tones.

      * Would you buy more from this company?
      Only if I know what a color actually looks like.
