I finally got to write the anticipated review on GEO Princess Mimi lenses I bought just a few weeks ago. I have to say I'm a huuuge lens noobie: I'm new to circle lenses (these are my first) and pretty new to contact lenses in general. So if you're thinking about buying yourself a first pair, this review is definitely for you.
I got my pair from Pinky Paradise, which is one of the biggest and most recommended circle lens reseller. When buying circle lenses, you have to pay attention to many factors such as prescription, diameter, structure and so on. Because I had no experience, I referred mostly to my regular lenses. In the end, I chose these because:
- the diameter is 15mm, which is big (which is what you aim for when buying circle lenses), but not huge (14mm are my regular lenses; 14.2 to 15 is considered a standard circle lens diameter)
- they were similar in composition to my regular lenses
- they have 1 year lifespan
- GEO has an anti-fake system to make sure you're wearing an original - yay for safety
Shipping from Pinky Paradise was $6, which is not bad, plus you get a free animal case with every pair of lenses. It took about 2 weeks for the order to arrrive.
The lenses came in these little bottles, sealed and everything. In the picture, one of the bottles is already open, that's because I opened it before taking the picture.
After opening the bottles, you have to take the lenses out, put them into your contact lens solution and leave them like that for 8 hours before you put them in your eyes.
Here are my lenses ready to wear
I got the Chocolate Brown version of these lenses and I think the color is really beautiful and exactly what I wanted. I was aiming for something very cute, because my natural eye color is (sometimes really bright) green and (maybe it's just my subjective opinion) it makes my eyes look sassy and kind of evil, which is not suitable for my otherwise cute style.
The dark chocolate brown color of the lenses covers my green pretty well and the lenses with the right makeup on make my eyes look much bigger and cuter. BUT bear in mind the makeup! These are not made for daily use and they require some heavier eye makeup, otherwise they tend to look a bit creepy!!!
Here is a picture for comparison: my natural color, one lens in and both lenses in.
|I have very small pupils in this pic because I was looking into the light while taking it. Otherwise, my natural eyecolor isn't visible at all. The lenses really blend in nicely.|
The lenses are pretty comfortable to wear, but I can feel the difference between these, my regular lenses and no lenses at all. My eyes are very sensitive and they sometimes do get irritated with the lenses but on the other hand, I wore them to a prom party and I completely forgot I was wearing them, so it probably depends on the situation.
And a funny picture in the end. I wore the lenses to school to get used to them, but I wore wrong makeup and I continued creeping the hell out of my classmates. So one of my friends got the silly idea "what would happen If i put your picture into the "glam me" app? Yup, one of it's features is eye enlargement.
Well, this is the outcome:
I hope this review was useful to you guys! If you have any questions, just ask!
