Princess Mimi Sesame Grey Circle Lens Review *sponsored product post*

Hi there! I'm back with another circle lens review, which has once again been kindly sponsored by LoveShoppingholics

Today I'm reviewing the very popular, very prettily designed, Princess Mimi Sesame Grey lenses (designed by gyaru goddess Tsubasa Bambi herself). And as expected, the design of these Sesame Greys are intricate - making eyes look big and doll-like, yet sophisticated and pretty at the same time. 

The lenses come in such cute and pretty presentation!
The lens case I received are cute blue elephants ^^

Manufacturer: GEO
Diameter: 15mm
Water Content: 38%
Base Curve: 8.7mm

Indoors - dimmer lighting
Indoors - natural lighting
With flash


Grey contact lenses tend to look more blue or blue-grey on dark brown eyes, and these were no exception on my eyes. These come out more as a dark bluey grey on my eyes, rather than a true grey, yet I don't mind because the colour is pretty and exotic. 

The colour only tends to be more vibrant in very bright lighting or sunlight - so when indoors in dimmer lighting, I find the lenses appear darker, and the pattern not too noticeable.

The pattern is very beautiful - the lens is intricately patterned, with a dark limbal ring, a light grey centre and a light brown ring around the iris hole, which helps blend into my dark brown eyes instead of clashing. 

The most unnatural component of this lens would be the thick black ring around the outside of the lens - those who love a big eyed, dolly look will love this, as it helps make eyes look so big and doll-like <3

And those who are after a natural grey lens will have consider other lenses, as these, though beautiful, aren't what I would call natural looking ^^


I find these lenses perfectly comfortable and wearable (like many of the GEO lenses I've tried previously). I usually need eyedrops around the 4-5 hour mark as my eyes tend to be dryer, but aside from that I do not have any difficulties wearing these. 


These lenses have a 15mm diameter which makes a huge difference to my eyes! These are a must have if you're after big, dolly eyes.

Note that unless you are already blessed with naturally big eyes and lovely long thick lashes, I would recommend wearing these with some eyeliner and mascara at the least ^^

I know that I looked very alien-like before I put on my eyeliner! Definitely not the type that can be worn alone~


There's something about grey eyes that I find really mysterious and alluring! The Princess Mimi Sesame Greys are a beautifully designed lens, perfect for creating a sweet dolly-eyed look. 

They're not a natural looking lens, but will enlarge eyes, and make them appear big and shiny.
I also love how you can easily give a sweet and dolly impression, or a sexy and sophisticated impression depending on how you wear your make-up with these too.
