As usual, I’ll share my circle lens ratings:

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Style: ☆☆☆☆☆ The circle lens design is beautiful! There’s a thick black limbal ring along with a variety of shades of brown on the inner portions of the lenses. The lens design looks slightly like a flower (petals opening up around the pupil).

Enlargement: ☆☆☆☆☆ Amazing enlargement! The thick limbal ring definitely helps to delineate your eyes as much bigger than they actually are. The diameter is perfect for that big-eyed dolly look! I love how big my eyes look when I wear these lenses.

Color: ☆☆☆☆☆ The limbal ring is a bold solid black. There’s flecks of pale brown as well as a slightly orange-tinted brown (a nice golden hue). The colors are rich, just like chocolate!

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ These are super comfortable lenses! I can wear them all day without a problem. They don’t dry out my eyes; I don’t even need to use eye drops. If you want comfy lenses, I would highly recommend the Geo Princess Mimi Chocolate Brown circle lenses!

I absolutely adore these circle lenses! I’ve tried another lens pair from the Geo Princess Mimi series, and those lenses are also really comfortable and cute. If you want a different lens from the Geo Princess Mimi series, go for it! I’m sure you’ll be satisfied.

How do you make your eyes so big?

This is a question I have received on Instagram, Facebook, and Tumblr. Many people who use circle lenses to achieve the big-eye look, since circle lenses literally enlarge your eyes (or at least give the illusion of bigger pupils and/or bigger irises). I love circle lenses for this same reason! But in addition to circle lenses, I use other techniques to make my eyes look bigger. Here are my top 3 tips for dolly eyes, in addition to circle lenses:

  1. False eyelashes. If you use false lashes, they can really open up your eyes and make them look bigger! Exaggerated lashes give the illusion of bigger eyes. Using just top lashes makes your eyes bigger, but if you use both top and bottom lashes, your eyes will appear to be even more exaggerated in size. When I apply my bottom lashes, I don’t put them at the waterline. By applying them below the waterline, it creates the illusion of larger eyes.
  2. Black eyeliner. Thick black eyeliner can also make your eyes look bigger since they draw attention to the outline of your eye. This is similar to how a dark and solid limbal ring on circle lenses gives the illusion of bigger eyes as well. You can apply black eyeliner with or without false lashes for an enlarging effect. Even when I don’t wear false lashes, I find that simple eyeliner can make my eyes look bigger. 
  3. White eyeliner and/or light-colored/luminescent eyeshadow. This is one of my favorite tricks! In the look I used for this blog post featuring the Geo Princess Mimi Chocolate Brown circle lenses, I used a silver eyeshadow. Normally, at home, I use white eyeliner to line the bottom of my eyes, but since I’m studying abroad, I had to pack light and the only eyeliner I brought with me was my black one. Since I didn’t have any white eyeliner, I decided to try using silver eyeshadow… and it works the same way! It also gives a cute sparkle to your eyes. If you use a light-colored/luminescent eyeshadow, carefully apply it to the bottoms of your eyes in a line. Do not blend the shadow. This should make your eyes pop!

I hope these tips will help you! Feel free to ask me any questions.

You may have seen me wear these lenses before… (And it’s true!) Here are some of my previous looks featuring these circle lenses:

Above, you can see that I am not wearing any false lashes. I used black eyeliner on the top and white eyeliner on the bottom, as well as neutral eyeshadows.

I also used these lenses for my Magnet Meiko (Vocaloid) costest! And of course, I’ve used these lenses upon other occasions as well. I hope you like them as much as I do!

Definitely check out Geo Princess Mimi Chocolate Brown circle lenses and let me know if you have tried any others in the series. If you purchase from PinkyParadise, be sure to use the code “xiaorawr” to get free mystery gifts and cute lens cases!

First, I will review the Geo Princess Mimi Chocolate Brown (Bambi series) lenses. These circle lenses are super comfy. The brown color is rich and vibrant, and the enlargement is amazing. I use these lenses for both street fashion and for cosplay. You have probably seen me wear these lenses for some lolita coordinates. Here, you can see these lenses in my Magnet Meiko (Vocaloid) costest!

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Style: ☆☆☆☆ Cute design! I love the black limbal ring with the scalloped inner edge. However, it sometimes looks odd unclose, especially if I am staring to the far right or left.

Enlargement: ☆☆☆☆☆ Great enlargement for the perfect dolly look! Since the color is brown, it can still pass as natural from a distance. But your eyes definitely look much bigger!

Color: ☆☆☆☆☆ Love this rich brown! There are multiple tones of brown in the design as well, which adds depth to the eyes. These lenses definitely remind me of chocolate.

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆ Very comfortable! I can wear it for 8 hours without any irritation.

Next, I am going to review the pink circle lenses that I currently use. I use these for my Hazuki Nagisa (Free!) cosplay, but I also use them for fashion coordinates. These are called the Vassen Sakura Candy Pink Brown lenses!

In some lighting, it looks pink, but sometimes, it looks more like a beige-brown. These lenses are super pretty and give wonderful enlargement, but they do not consistently appear pink. As you can see in the selfie below, these lenses make my eyes look huge!

Overall: ☆☆☆☆☆

Style: ☆☆☆☆ The style is simple but super cute. I think it gives me that anime look~! The limbal ring is dark brown, but it looks reddish in some lighting (which I love!).

Enlargement: ☆☆☆☆☆ Wonderful enlargement! These are way bigger than my natural eyes. The brown limbal ring also helps my eyes stand out.

Color: ☆☆☆☆ The color looks pink sometimes, but more like a muted brown at other times. I think it depends on the lighting.

Comfort: ☆☆☆☆☆ These are one of my most comfortable lenses! I have worn them for an entire day at a con (~12 hours), and they did not irritate my eyes. I sometimes forgot I was even wearing circle lenses.

I have not decided what I will dress up as for Halloween this year… But I do have some ideas. I might want to try a creepy-cute demon look, or I might cosplay (because I really love cosplaying…). Maybe I will try to cosplay as one of my OCs! I have many creepy OCs from short stories and novels that I wrote back in middle school and high school. Unfortunately, since I began college, I have not had time to do much creative writing. I have written some poems and snippets of stories, but no novels. I definitely want to try something creepy this year if I have the time and materials!

Remember that you can use the coupon code “Halloween2014PearlPeony” for 50% off. Check out PinkyParadise for an amazing selection of circle lenses, false eyelashes, makeup products, and more!
