GEO Xtra circle lens - WTB31 Violet (aka diamond series)review and EOTD

Indian blogging scenario will never be the same again :p
Now that the famous "very anime circle lenses " has hit the blogosphere.
And kpop fans, harajuku ,ulzzang lovers in India can now drool over this :)

 PACKAGE- UNIQSO sent them in super cute package . Its so cute.i'm never throwing it away lol The vials were bubble wrapped and very sturdy along with a blue lid simple lens case. It reached me within 8 days by registered post. How cool is that!!!
 WHAT ARE CIRCLE LENSES
A circle contact lens, also known as a big eye contact lens and circle lens, is a cosmetic contact lens that makes the eye's iris appear larger; this product originated from South Korea.

 Circle contact lenses make one's eyes appear larger and come in a variety of colors and effects. They have been around since 2004 and are very popular in Asian countries such as South Korea, Japan, Taiwan and China. The diameter of regular contact lenses that are sold in the United States are on average 14mm–16mm, similar to the diameter of the cosmetic circle contact lenses.
The difference between the two types of lenses is that circle contact lenses are tinted not only in areas that cover the iris of the eye, but also prominently in the extra-wide outer rim of the lens. The result is the appearance of a bigger, wider iris and create an illusion of large, doll-like eyes. The optical zone in the middle is transparent and it is large enough to provide clear vision.
close up look
 The lenses are popular among Asian teenagers and young adults. Many people consider circle lenses to be a fashion accessory rather than a medical device. They are often used to create a look reminiscent of anime characters.They are also used to create the Kawaii look which is characterized by large eyes with anime-like features, or the Eoljjang look.

DESIGN-★★★★★
 the design was much better than it looked on the website picture. the violet and black are arranged in diamond pattern.

COLOR-★★★★★
 Violet is among my favourite colors so i'm totally in love with this one. I love how the Violet and black blend so well and make it totally wearable. i don't get the weird "is she a vampire?"looks from people .

ENLARGEMENT-★★★★★
 As you can see in the pictures, the enlargement is enormous . It is 15 mm in diameter. Wearing it can be a little difficult if you have tiny eyes like me lol

COMFORTABILITY-★★★★☆
The first 15-20 minutes i can feel a gritty feeling in my eyes (foreign body sensation) But it eventually goes away though very slowly.


WEARABILITY★★★★★
The black blended into the violet subdues the vibrant effect of the lens. So its wearable for day to day look . Its barely noticeable unless the person looks really hard ,its difficult to see the violet inside the room( and that's why i love it because i don't want my eyes screaming "look at meee!!")

  22. i think 15 mm is good for dramatic anime looks.
    but for everyday subtle looks i'll go for 14.5 mm
