GEO Princess Mimi Starmish Brown


I've previously used Princess mimi lenses before and absolutely loved them, so when I found out about a new Starmish colour I had to try them. This lens is the same big 15mm lens as preview princess mimi lenses and the same comfort. I wore these all day and didn't have a problem with them drying up, which is usually a big problem with circle lenses and ones that are this big in diameter as well.

These lenses came with a cute animal case and the princess mimi designed bottles. I suggest when you open it you flip the lid strongly and have tweezers and pliers ready if you make a mistake because the metal edges of these contacts are sharp. 

I made the mistake of once taking unopened bottles out with me and then having to spend 20 minutes trying to pry them open carefully without cutting myself because I opened them wrong - not fun.

The lenses in the solution look like a bright yellow honey colour, but this colour will look a lot more natural on, especially if you have darker eyes like myself. 

The color to me is my favourite part, the brown is very golden, and bright, looking like a cool brown with flash. You can see the colour difference in the images.

I recommend this colour for anyone wanting to get a bright golden brown doe- eye look. This colour is better than a natural brown because it gives a little bit of brightness to your look that is still quite natural. I'm a huge fan of light brown and hazel eyes so this is one of the most perfect colours. Especially goes well with brown and light brown hair.

Comfort level: 4/5 - these started feeling a bit dry at the 12 hour mark which is pretty good.
Color and appearance: 5/5 - this is fast becoming one of my favourite pair of lenses to wear.

I. Fairy Kirei Brown

These are actually quite similar to the New Adult Brown I reviewed not too long ago (review here). However, these are larger, much larger and is like a cooler version of them.

NOTE: I apologize before I start the review, because I actually didn't have my usual camera(s) with me and the lighting wasn't the best - especially with the weather I am having here - so the photos have a cooler tint to them in the "natural lighting" settings.

Lens Info:
Diameter : 16.2mm 
Water Content : 55%
Life Span : 1 year
B.C. : 8.6mm
Power Range: 0.00 - -8.50

Price: $22.00

Florescent // Flash

It's very pretty! With these lenses you definitely get a halo effect and the teary glistening eye look. The thick ring adds the dolly touch and the center helps them to blend in. The color as mentioned at the beginning of this post, is slightly cooler and has a washed yellow tone rather than being brown. Once again though, in person these lenses are a warmer color than what is depicted in the photos above labelled under "window light".

These are BIG. Makeup is a must for me with these lenses and when paired with some lashes.. ;D

I. Fairy lenses do not fail me here! 55% water content is very comfy for me!

 I would like to give these a 4.5 rather than just 4. They are huge, dolly, pretty and eye catching. The only downfall is that they aren't something I would wear on a daily basis as I do not get dressed up for work nor do I wear heavy makeup and lashes regularly. But for those of you who like these types of lenses, go for it! I'm sure you'd be able to rock them more often than I do!
