Good morning everyone~ (or afternoon/evening, depending on where in the world you are).
Today I have another review sponsored by the lovely online circle lens shop Love Shoppingholics!
I've reviewed them before, so I won't go into too much detail about their shop, but essentially they're an online shop with a massive selection of circle lenses of all colors and designs~
So, thank you Love Shoppingholics!
The lenses I'll be reviewing today are the Geo Princess Mimi lenses in Apple Green. If this sounds a bit familiar to you, it's because I've reviewed the same lenses before in Chocolate Brown! I just really loved the design, and I wanted to have it in green as well as brown~
So, let's start!
As always, basic lens info:
Brand: Geo Medical
Diameter: 15.0 mm
Base Curve: 8.7 mm
Water Content: 38%
Life Span: 1 Year
Price: $23.90 on Love Shoppingholics
The lenses came packaged as they normally do from Love Shoppingholics- in a really cute bag inside another cute bag ^.^
|Whatever I do, it is for you|
~*sighs dreamily as is swept away by a prince*~
|I still haven't found a use for these bags... but they're so cute!|
These come with a cute animal lens case- elephants in this case! I like how they're green to match the color of the lenses- that way I won't have to open say, a pink case for example x3
Ah I love this case so much <3
The lenses themselves came wrapped up in this foam-like material to better protect the lens vials (so they aren't rattling around in that cute bag)~
There also was a really cute thank you note inside ^_^
I always like receiving little notes when I purchase things~
The lens vials are like the vials for the Chocolate Brown Princess Mimi lenses I bought before- no surprise there~
^^The Geo sticker has a code that you can use to check the authenticity of the lenses! You scratch of the grey part to access the code, then go to the Geo site to enter the code and see if it's authentic. I never did this because I didn't doubt the authenticity of my lenses, but if you ever end up buying lenses from a place and you're suspecting fraud, I highly recommend that you do this.
Now, the design of these lenses remind me a lot of the Madonna Green lenses that I reviewed in my last circle lens review- but these do have some differences. They're much more enlarging, and the colors are sort of darker and richer. I think these are better for more intense looks, like when wearing false eyelashes, so they're much more eye-catching. In the end I think both are great, and despite the similarity, they still look good ^_^
|See what I mean? The color is very, very rich.|
|I couldn't take the photo without blinking- so have a photo with half-closed eyes (sorry ;~;)|
These lenses look green in all lighting, which is nice! Normally when you go into dim light, the color of the lens sort of goes away and you're left with just the enlarging effect, but even in dim light, you can tell that the lenses are green.
On to full-face photos, because those are the most fun :3
|I had just painted my nails~|
|My Shiro necklace is seriously my favorite thing ever <3|
|Eye rhinestone because... why not?|
|My fabulous wall~|
And of course, a few words on the lenses.
As I mentioned, the design is really similar to the lenses I reviewed last time, but these are definitely better for the whole "eye enlarging super kawaii" look. Because they're so enlarging (15.0mm is big!), I recommend using eyeliner, and fake eyelashes if you can. This will bring out the enlargement, and won't make you look like a scary alien ^.^
These were really comfortable. I wore them for a long time, so near the end of that time they became a bit uncomfy, but overall the comfort was quite good. I think my eyes have become a bit overly sensitive though, so these did bother me a tad because they dried out my eyes a little big (something to keep in mind if you have sensitive eyes). In any case, it's nothing a few eyedrops wouldn't fix.
Anyways, thank you for reading!
I hope you enjoyed the post~
What did you think of these lenses?
