Geo Magic Brown (BC-101) Circle Lens Review
I ordered my first circle lenses from pinkyparadise.com recently and have been hooked ever since! Circle lenses are super popular in Asia and I just couldn't wait to try them out myself! In countries like Korea, picking out your circle lenses for the day is like picking out which necklace you should wear with your outfit. People are obsessed with the innocent "dolly" eye look that circle lenses are able to give you.
I wanted circle lenses that were natural enough to enhance my eyes without making me look like a weird anime character. Anime characters are meant to be animated for a reason folks... seeing eyes that large in real life would just trip me out! The Geo Magic Brown Lens was exactly what I was looking for!
The lens are a beautiful brown colour that blends well with my medium brown eyes. Asians usually have pretty dark eyes and I have repeatedly been told that my eyes are significantly lighter (more brown) than most Asian's eyes. Circle lenses usually have an outer rim on them to act as a border to the iris; this creates a more prominent enlarging effect, but these don't have an outer rim which makes it much less noticeable. The lens have a lot of clear sections on them so much of your actual eye is seen while wearing these. As you can see in the photo above, the enlargement effect is quite noticeable but because the colour and design blends so well, it makes it will make it difficult for other to point out why you look "different" today without taking a close up look at you. That being said, people will notice if they look at you directly in the eye whilst having a conversation with you so don't think you can get away with the whole "oh I just had a good night sleep" when they mention that you look more awake!
These lens are generally very comfortable but still not as comfortable as your regular clear prescription contacts. I noticed that these contacts are thicker than regular contacts and they also feel sturdier. If you do not wear contacts regularly you may experience discomfort for the first week or so but your eyes will get used to them. Make sure you lens are not inside out because it can really hurt
like a motherfucker a lot! I notice that when I strain my eyes while wearing the contacts, my vision becomes slightly blurry and uncomfortable but I usually just have to look outside for the discomfort to go away. I have tried the Princess Mimi Almond Brown Contacts before and they are much more comfortable the the Magic Brown but those are really large and borderline creepy on my eyes. I personally have extremely dry eyes and these did get fairly dry throughout the day. I can make do without eyedrops for 8 hours but I personally prefer that I do have eyedrops on me to keep my eyes moist. I think for most people you could most likely get away with no eye drops at all.
