Geo Starmish Brown / XKP-304 Review

Welcome to my first circle lens review on my new blog, yay! ( ノ^ω^)ノ゚
Today I'm reviewing a pair of Geo Starmish Brown (also known as XKP-304) lenses that PinkyParadise were kind enough to sponsor me

As you can see I have light blue eyes, which makes finding circle lenses that'll cover my natural colour kinda tricky sometimes. With these lenses you can still see the blue but only in direct sunlight, so I'm pretty happy with how they look on me :)

[ Colour ]
These lenses are a really pretty amber brown with a dark brown limbal ring. The ring isn't solid, it blends into the middle a bit so it looks more natural than other lenses that have a perfect circular limbal ring. The coloured part of the lenses are completely opaque, my natural colour doesn't show except for right in the middle around my pupil. Giving 5 stars because I really like the colour and it definitely 'shows up' on my eyes.

[ Enlargement ]
14.5mm is about the middle size when it comes to circle lenses. These make my eyes look much larger but are smaller than other lenses I own. They give a dolly look without being too big, so I think they'd be good for gyaru/lolita looks or cosplaying not so cutesy characters. I would only recommend them for everyday wear if you're going to do the make up to match to balance them out. (with falsies, eyeliner etc)

[ Comfort ]
Not sure if my eyes were just having a sensitive day or not but I found these lenses were somewhat tricky to put in because they seemed to dry out quickly and my eyes did ache a few hours after putting them in. In saying that, I've worn GEO lenses before all day and had no problems so it could have just been because I was tired after a day at work. I think if I tried them on in the morning for a day out they'd be more comfortable.

I originally got these to cosplay Petra from Attack on Titan, so here's my costest of her to give an idea of what they look like with cosplay make up :)

So there you go! PinkyParadise asked me to give an honest review so here it is. I'll be reviewing the rest of my lenses over the summer so stay tuned! Thank you so much for reading my first review and I hope it helps!  (especially for those of you with light eyes also, I know reviews are hard to find)

If you shop at PinkyParadise don't forget to use my code 'TailsCosplay' for a free cute animal lens case and mystery gift! :D
