It's been a while since I bought some new circle lenses, and my old ones are almost at their expiry so I thought why not get some new ones ヾ(☆▽☆)! My friend Kayte and I decided to get the Geo Princess Mimi (Bambi series) lenses in different colours after reading some good things about them, so here is a little review from us both!
I orderded my lenses from Pinky Paradise because even though they are a bit more expensive than some other lens stores, I find that they are extremely reliable especially when it comes to communication, shipping and most importantly authenticity. They kept in contact with me and sent me updates via email, and my lenses arrived two days after I ordered them. I got cute little animal cases for free as well as velcro hair holders and under eye moisturization masks *which mind you were amazing ヽ(*≧ω≦)ﾉ!*. All of my lens vials had Geo authenticity check stickers on them, and they were all verified on the Geo website as real so I'm very happy to not be sticking anything fake in my eyes.
Here are our lenses out of the vials and into our animal cases! So cute!
The specifications for the lenses are:
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Type: 1 year disposal
Me: Apple Green
Color and pattern:
My eyes are already a very noticeable green, so I wasn't expecting too much of a difference in colour but I was really surprised by the vibrancy of the green in the lenses. The thing that drew me to these lenses the most was the thickness of the limbal ring, I think it's beautiful and the pattern of the ring really compliments the lenses.
The main reason I wanted new lenses was for enlargement, and these lenses definitely have an amazing effect! The lens diameter is quite large compared to most others (which average around 14 - 14.5mm). The limbal ring contributes to the enlargement, and also makes the rest of the eye look white and doll like.
I have very sensitive eyes, so when it comes to lenses I am very picky when it comes to comfort. I was able to wear these for ten hours ~I know that's bad but I didn't get a chance to take them out~ without any discomfort, and it was the best feeling ever. They didn't become dry at all, and even though the diameter is large I couldn't feel them in my eyes.
Note: I also use a 16 hour moisture retention lens solution that aids in comfort.
I would recommend this lens series to anybody who wears circle lenses or is interested in wearing them. They would be very hard to wear casually with little to no make up because of their size, they kinda make you look like an alien *see photo above* but when paired up with lashes they go hand in hand for a very doll-like look.
Kayte: Chocolate Brown
Color and pattern:
I didn't know if the lenses were going to cover my blue eyes properly, but surprisingly the brown went over it really really well. I was expecting the lenses to be a deep chocolate colour, but they are actually quite red toned and auburn so it's a bit disappointing because they look a bit unnatural. The limbal ring also makes them look really unnatural, and you wouldn't be able to wear them casually because of it.
The enlargement on these lenses are hugeeeeeeeeee. They make your eyes look ten times bigger than what they are, they're really really nice.
I had these lenses in for a very long time and they didn't irritate my eyes at all. The only uncomfortable thing about the lenses is getting them in your eye. They're quite large so it's harder to get them in compared to some of my other lenses, but once they're in they sit comfortably and you can't feel them at all. They're the most comfortable pair I have.
I really like that they're huge and extremely dramatic lenses that are comfortable to wear. I'm thinking about getting the Sesame Grey colour from the same series. Again, they're very hard to wear casually and you would need dramatic eye makeup to finish the look *sorry about the photo above, it turned out blurry*.
And of course, since we're all dolled up this calls for selcasssssss!
I hope you liked our review! If you found it helpful or have any questions feel free to leave a comment,(^_−)☆!! These lenses are definitely going to get a lot of wear!
And now, I'll leave you with an embarrassing video of Kayte and I (well, mainly me) from this afternoon featuring BIG BANG.
