Shoppingholics.com Review: Geo Princess Mimi Circle Lenses 'Chocolate Brown'+ EOTD

Yes, circle lenses. Very controversial product, but whatever.
These are the first circle lenses I have EVER tried and reviewed, so keep that in mind. Have it in mind? Yes? Okay, good.

I bought these out of sheer curiosity, because I really wanted to know what these would look like on my eye. A little background: I have extremely dark brown eyes and normal sized eyes, leaning towards the smaller side. I thought the 'Chocolate Brown' would be the most flattering and natural color on me so I purchased that one.

Price Availability:
I bought these at Shoppingholics and they were $23.90. They kindly sent me a cute contact case as well as a few extras.
Shipping and Packaging
Shipping was $3.90! That is such a great price for products that are being shipped from Asia! But it did take a while for the package to arrive. I made my order on 03/20 and received it on 03/31. It wasn't too bad, its not like I urgently needed circle lenses! And everything was packaged so cute and neat! I recommend this site!
 The box in which the lenses were in was so freaking cute~~
Nice, eh?
Case

Thank You card

Some extras :D



Application and Comfort

At first, these were difficult to apply, but that is because I am really inexperienced and such a noob T_T [Noob Alert!!] But, once I found a technique that worked for me, it was really easy to apply these. I lift my eye lid upwards and apply the lens with my index finger directly into my eye, and then blink several times.
*Remember that you have to soak new circle lenses in cleaning solution for 8 hours prior to using them!

When I first put these on, they were a little uncomfortable. And like I said before, I have never worn circle lenses before. I could definitely feel them there, but over all they weren't that uncomfortable once I got used to them.  I have heard that these are very comfortable as far as circle lenses go, but I can't compare them since I've never used any other ones before. I can't wear these for very long though.

Overall Thoughts
I can't say I love these, honestly. I think I look super creepy with them on, and rather soulless. I think maybe the color doesn't suit me very well. Also, although these aren't uncomfortable, they still feel weird to have on. And although they make my pupils look bigger, I don't think they make my eyes look bigger.
I would still try some other circle lenses, and I actually want to try the Princess Mimi gray lenses.

Here is what they look like on my eye:

I seeeee you ~~~

EOTD:
I paired the lenses with a dramatic purple look~ I used all Shiro Cosmetics eyeshadows.

I Used:
~Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy to prime my lids and lower lash line
~Shiro Cosmtics 'Lance the Dragon Trainer' on the lid
~Shiro Cosmetics 'Rattata' on the crease
~Shiro Cosmetics 'Spiritomb' on the inner corner
~ELF pen liner
~KKCenterhk lashes
~GC Lash Blast Fusion



I can see into your soul Bwahahaha!
Thank you all for reading xD I hope I didn't look too soulless in these pictures!
*I will take more pictures with these lenses on so you can can see how they look better.
