Geo: Princess Mimi Almond Brown Lenses

The website www.geocolouredlenses.com sponsored the Geo Princess Mimi Almond Brown lenses for me to review. These are brown lenses that last up to a year with proper care. The diameter is 14.5 mm, the base curve is 8.7, and the water content is 40±2%. These lenses come in prescriptions 0.00 ∼ -8.00.

Here is the package I received:

The contents of the package were neatly in one place, sealed in a plastic bag.

The Geo lenses came in individual vials, with the prescriptions on top of the caps. The lenses also came with a complimentary lens case, marked with “L” and “R” for “Left” and “Right.” There was also a business card sized flyer with information about Geo Coloured Lenses’ social media, and a sheet with instructions for soft contact lens care.

Below, you can see a set of three photos. The top one shows one eye with no lens or makeup, but the other eye has lenses and makeup. As you can see, The lenses and makeup make my eyes look a lot bigger! In the middle photo, both of my eyes have makeup on, but only one eye is wearing a circle lens. You can see the difference that the circle lens makes! The bottom photo is the complete look.

Circle lenses are a great cosmetic accessory that can add a lot to your look! And since many of them come in prescriptions, you can use them instead of wearing glasses. Just be sure to take proper care of your lenses and remember to avoid keeping them in your eyes for too long. And never sleep in your lenses!

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Packaging: ☆☆☆☆☆ The packaging was great; I have no complaints.

Style: ☆☆☆☆☆ I love the design of these lenses: there is a black limbal ring that surrounds sheer light brown color! The lenses give dramatic enlargement but are in a natural color, so these lenses would work for a variety of makeup looks.

Color: ☆☆☆☆ I do wish the color was more opaque so the light brown shows better on my dark eyes, but the color still looks lighter than my natural eye color.

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ These are very comfortable! I have only worn them once, but I definitely want to wear them more often. I could hardly feel them in my eyes when I wore them, and I kept them in for several hours.

(☆ = Most negative/Not good at all, ☆☆ = Not that good, but okay ☆☆☆ = Neutral/No opinion/No answer, ☆☆☆☆ = Great, ☆☆☆☆☆ = Most positive/Fantastic!)

Christmas Beauty Questions Tag

blog

Hi, everyone! I read Denise’s blog post responding to the Christmas Beauty Questions Tag, and she invited everyone who read her blog post to do this questionnaire too. I love reading Denise’s beauty reviews, and she also has really cool photo diaries. My family doesn’t celebrate Christmas, but I’ve always enjoyed giving holiday presents to close friends. Christmas doesn’t feel like a special day to me; it’s no different than any other “normal” day. To be honest, winter is my least favorite season (because I hate the cold), so I am not fond of December but I try my best to stay positive! And giving winter holiday gifts to others is definitely a great way to add some positivity to the shivering cold weeks.

Without further ado, here are my answers to the Christmas Beauty Questions Tag!

1. Have you been naughty or nice this year with your skincare routine?

I have been naughty… Very naughty. I really should take better care of my skin, but I’m always stressed and busy during academic semesters, which spurs on skincare laziness due to lack of free time. Although skincare should be a priority… But nope! And even during the summer, I didn’t take very good care of my skin since I had an internship and was busy. I am guilty of rushing through washing my face at night… and not removing makeup properly. I also rub at my skin roughly when I apply face cream; my mom scolds me every time I’m home and I do this because she says it looks painful. On a “nice” note, I always apply face cream at night and I use acne spot gel when I have breakouts (which happen a lot due to stress).

2. What’s the go-to beauty, makeup or skincare product you would gift to your family and friends?

It depends on who I’m gifting to and what they like! For some friends, perfumes would be the perfect gift because they love fragrances. For others, lipstick would be a better choice. My mom doesn’t wear makeup, so if I were to choose a gift for her, it would be a skincare item such as a cream or cleanser.

3. Do you mind gifting high-end products or rather drug store products to others?

I have gifted both high-end products and drug store products to others in the past. I think real friends would appreciate the gift regardless of the price or where it’s from; it’s the thought that counts!

4. What are the beauty products you’re hoping to get to see under your Christmas tree this year?

I don’t have a Christmas tree and my family doesn’t celebrate Christmas… So I am not exactly “hoping to see something” unless it’s something I buy for myself (and I really want to try more sheet masks and eyebrow pencils). However, my friend Terry got me a gift and made me promise not to open it until Christmas day. And she heavily implied that it was a beauty item… (This is the same Terry who got me my first Korean eyeliner! Read my review here.)

5. What is the beauty product that you’re dreading to receive for Christmas this year?

Not dreading anything. And as previously mentioned, I don’t celebrate Christmas.

6. Are you are beauty blogger participating in Blogmas this year? If so what is the post you’re most proud of so far?

Nope! I actually had no idea what Blogmas was until Denise explained it to me. Maybe I can participate someday!

7. Do you remember the first beauty product you received as a Christmas present? What was it and did you enjoy it?

I am not sure if I have ever received a beauty product as a Christmas present… But WishTrend sponsored a Klairs skincare set around Christmas time, so if that counts as a present, I definitely enjoyed it! It was fun writing the review and I’m still not done using all the products.

8. What mini size product would you recommend as a great stocking stuffer?

Lipsticks and eyeliners are lovely small items that would fit nicely into stockings! Small eyeshadow quads would also be really cute.

9. Would you rather you friends and family ask you gifts you wanted to receive or have them surprise you?

I don’t mind either way. I honestly feel awkward when people ask me what kinds of gifts I want since I don’t want to ask for things that will inconvenience my friends and family. It’s the thought that counts, so I appreciate any gift, as long as the gift has good intentions.

10. What is your favourite way to show Christmas spirit through your look or outfit?

My favorite color is red, so Christmastime is yet another excuse for me to wear lots of red! I haven’t tried to pull off a Christmas fashion look yet, but I did attend an Ugly Sweater Cosplay Meet recently and designed a really silly ugly Christmas sweater. Before this year ends, I hope to wear a Christmas-y Lolita coordinate! In 2013, Terry invited me to go with her on a winter Lolita adventure on Christmas Eve. My Lolita coordinate wasn’t exactly Christmas-y… but it was red!

Anyone who would like to do this: YOU’RE TAGGED! ^_^

All lenses from KLensPop come with a lens case and a tweezer. I don’t use the tweezer because I prefer to use my fingers, but if you like using tweezers to handle your lenses, the option is available to you! These lenses are beautiful and I can’t decide if I like these lenses or the Bunny Color Brown lenses better… They’re both such great brown circle lenses! In comparison to the Bunny Color Brown ones, the Magic Eye Heva circle lenses are generally darker in color.

And now, for my circle lens ratings!

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆ This circle lenses are absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait to wear them again (probably this weekend ^_^)!

Style: ☆☆☆☆☆ The design is beautiful. The outer rim is a rich dark brown. It’s not a solid limbal ring since it fades nicely in the center to a yellow-toned golden brown. The clear space in the center doesn’t obstruct my vision at all, even when I roll my eyes.

Enlargement: ☆☆☆☆ The graphic diameter is 14.2 mm, so this does enlarge my eyes quite a bit. Since there is no black limbal ring, these lenses look fairly natural. If I wear them out in public, I don’t think people will stare at me.

Color: ☆☆☆☆☆ I love this rich brown color! The accents of golden-brown in the center look really nice too, and they look slightly different depending on how the light hits my eyes.

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ These are so comfortable! They’re just as comfortable as the Bunny Color Brown lenses. I couldn’t even feel them in my eyes after applying them; the only eye-related discomfort I felt was from my false lashes… which has nothing to do with the circle lenses. If you want comfy lenses, I would highly recommend the Magic Eye Heva circle lenses.

(☆ = Most negative/Not good at all, ☆☆ = Not that good, but okay ☆☆☆ = Neutral/No opinion/No answer, ☆☆☆☆ = Great, ☆☆☆☆☆ = Most positive/Fantastic!)
