It's time for another circle lens review, ladies! (and gentlemen?!)
So to start off, I bought these lenses with my own money, and this is my OWN, 100% personal, honest opinion. Now that that's out of the way, on to the introduction. :)
I purchased these GEO Hurricane lenses in Violet from Kiwiberry1-Collection.com I think I ordered these lenses in blue from another website to use for my Makise Kurisu (Steins;gate, wh00t!) cosplay for Fanime Con, but my boyfriend needed blue lenses for his cosplay, so I gave them to him. But that's okay; I'm convinced her eyes are PURPLE anyway; I only bought blue because he wanted me to get blue because he hates purple (hater). ANYWAYS.
GEO HC-101 Hurricane Violet
Base Curve: 8.6mm
Water Content: 38%
Duration: 1 year
As you can see, these lenses are very pixelated! They look quite different in person versus the stock photos on the website. The outer ring is also very pixelated, but gives a very softening effect because the color isn't very intense. I'm also sorry it's kind of an awkward angle, so you can't really see the cool spiral effect! Let's keep scrolling, shall we?
Makeup, no lens.. Sorry for the weird focusing. Or lack there-of..
BAM! Intense. Most lenses tend to look lighter on my eyes, but these ended up being much darker! At least you can see the awesome spiral-effect here. I LOVE it! ...And actually that outer ring is quite black, isn't it. I guess that first picture, um, the lens must've been backwards... LOL. Well, know you know what it looks like, let's just move on. :D
Comfort level ... 4/5
Not too shabby! I think I wore them around... 6-7 hours? They dried a little bit during the day, but it was SUPER sunny today, so that I'm sure was a big contributor to irritation. I wore sunglasses for a while, so that helped a lot since my eyes are rather sensitive. At the end of the day my eyes were pretty dried out, but I didn't use any re-wetting drops at all during the day.
I looooooove this design! From further away, it looks, uh, natural? *How can purple be natural...* I don't know, I think it does. Up close, you can see the amazing spiral effect that I'm just gushing over. I think it blends in AMAZINGLY well too, which is always a major plus for me. The color changes depending on the lighting, but it's more on the darker side, which I was a little disappointed about, but the color is still really pretty.
I was pretty surprised how enlarging these are for being only 14mm. I mean, they're not going to give you that SUPER ALIEN BUG-EYED look, but my boyfriend said my eyes were too big LOL (or maybe it was the purple again... hater). I have no idea why they look as big as they do, but they sure as hell don't look like mere 14mm lenses!
I rather like these lenses a lot. The main reason I bought them though is for my Kurisu cosplay, which I haven't tried pairing yet, so my decision may sway, just a tad. I guarantee these lenses won't go unnoticed in public (your eyes are purple), so be prepared for a few looks. ;) They dry out a little every two hours before they're comfortable again, but 6 hours is my limit. The spiral design is just so unique and so pretty, ugh. Just, go get yourself a pair! Right now!
OOPS I just realized I don't know how these look without makeup. You probably want to stick to makeup with these lenses though. Maybe a less dramatic lash, because my eyes just look ridiculously big. And purple. According to my boyfriend. (hater) LOL <3
Okay, it's almost 2am (what the fuck am I still doing up...) I am off to bed!!
Oh, and don't forget to check my review of these lenses on Review Circle Lens [dot] com (here!) So I was lazy and just copy/paste, but I would love it if you guys could add your own reviews there too! See you guys there! <3
