Circle Lens Review: GEO - Bambi Princess Mimi Chocolate Brown (15mm)

GEO Princess Mimi- Chocolate Brown
15mm
Red-brown with dark brown limbal ring
$23.90 AUD @ candylens.com

 Very intricate pattern and design


 Blends well with brown eyes, with 3 distinct shades
Indoors lighting- will look a little more reddish-brown in brighter lighting

VERDICT
As expected, a product designed and endorsed by popular Japanese model Tsubasa, these Chocolate Browns are a beautiful pair of circle lens. Personally, the red-brown colour is not quite what I'm looking for in a brown lens. They come off as more 'sexy' or 'alluring', rather than 'dolly' or 'cute' <-- but it probably depends on make-up too. I'm kinda simplistic with my make up looks (upper falsies, little eyeliner, face highlighter) so I'm yet to wear these lenses out of the house. Once I master more gyaru/dolly type make-up looks I'll be on my way XD

COMFORT
From the first time I wore them I had no issues with comfort at all. This was my first 15mm lens so I wondered if there would be discomfort, but there has been none. I think the quality is quite good. 4.5/5

DESIGN
I love the intricacy of the design. There are 3 distinctly different shades of brown- a dark, chocolate brown limbal ring with 'spikes', a red-brown speckled ring, and finally a yellow brown ring.They all blend nicely together with my dark brown eyes.

I highly recommend that they be worn with make-up. Eye-liner and falsies (top and bottom for best results) at the very least anyway. 

These lenses don't look natural in appearance, but that doesn't mean they're ugly. Depending on the make-up they will look either 'sexy' or 'dolly'. 

On the plus side, the design of these lenses don't look pixelated. 4.5/5

COLOUR
My biggest gripe about this lens (apart from the need for more make-up), is the reddish brown colour. I really wish there was more of the chocolate brown shade. It's not really an issue in indoors lighting, but under brighter lighting the lenses appear red-brown. Sometimes they make me think of vampires *0* 

I guess I'm just after a more doe-eyed, liquid brown colour? 3/5

ENLARGEMENT
At 15mm in diameter, these are noticeably enlarging on me. 4.5/5 

TOTAL: 16.5/20





Actually, recently I'm beginning to like these lenses a lot more! I think the more I improve my make-up application, the better they will look~

  1. Very pretty! I used to wear colored contacts all the time until I got my lasik surgery. Now it's really hard to use my contacts which are plaino prescriptions. :/ ah well.

  4. Oh, thanks! Ya, I've been looking at the ones you mentioned. I've only had grey circle lenses one other time before and they looked almost blue which I wasn't too fond of:/ But I checked out the geo super nudy grey that you recommended and they look much nicer than I had imagined:) Thanks for the opinion! Visit you again soon^^
