Review: Geo "Princess Mimi" Circle Lens

I know this isn't nail related, but it is beauty related so I'm sharing a review with my dear readers :)
On Black Friday, I ordered a pair of circle lenses from PinkyParadise.com because they had a free shipping special offer and they finally arrived 2 days ago!
If you are not familiar with circle lenses, they are large colored contact lenses that make your iris appear much larger.  
They are very popular in Asia, and actually illegal in the US!

The pair I ordered are called Geo Princess Mimi and the color is "Apple Green".
As you can see, my natural color is a greenish-brown, or hazel.
These lenses made the green more prominent and have a thick outer rim on the iris!
 I got green because I did not want to change the color of my eye too much, just enhance & enlarge. 

A great feature on the PinkyParadise website is that they actually have links to photos submitted by customers who have ordered the product, so you can see the specific lenses on all different eye colors! 

They are very comfortable and look great, I wore them to school yesterday and got a lot of compliments :D


(This bottom photo looks photoshopped but it's not, the exposure on my phone's camera was just different!)

Every pair of circle lenses also comes with a free random choice cutie case, mine was blue hippo!
My phone completely broke before I could take a photo but this is the same one pictured above :)

So, overall I would definitely recommend this brand of circle lens.
The price was $23.90, came with a free case & the lenses are said to last a year.
 They were really comfortable all day and look lovely!
I have a feeling I will be ordering many more pairs!! :)

What are your thoughts on circle lenses?

This review was not sponsored in any way, I am simply just sharing my thoughts on a product that I like.

  1. I am in love with circle lenses. I have quite a number of them due to my cosplay needs and had varied products. Just wasn't able to really try to blog about them yet haha. But one of these days I will. ;)

    Thanks for sharing about this Lauren! Not nails but also beauty related! Love it! :)

  2. Those look great! I ordered some, but they were too big and wouldn't stay in my eyes. So i lost out on $25 or so because they don't do refunds :(
