I won 50% off Geo 3-Tone Brown Lenses

This post is actually really delayed haha. I won 50% off circle lenses from a blog giveaway hosted by Samantha of FOTDLOOKS and I won this back in August xD I didn't have time to review them during my busy school period but now I've finally got the chance to review these lenses :)

Samantha is also the owner of FOTDLOOKS Lenses which she has created and runs by herself. And as her grand opening promotion, she held a giveaway for her blog followers and also on her Facebook group. Very generous of her :)

She had a giveaway where 3 people can win lenses and 2 people can win 50% off lenses. I was the last person to be randomly chosen for this giveaway so I was lucky enough to get 50% off a pair of lenses of my choice ^_^

I chose the Geo 3-Tone/World Series Brown lenses because I think they're really pretty! I want to collect all of the colours of this series :D


It came in an envelope and the lens vials were wrapped in bubble wrap. I wasn't expecting Sam to send me a lens case but it's good that she is providing free lens cases with lenses =) I liked how she sent out a thank you letter to show her appreciation to her customers and a discount card for the next purchase. The discount card only lasts for a month and it's 5% off.

FOTDLOOKS Lenses is based in the UK so it took more than 2 weeks to arrive :( It must have been stuck in customs, most likely to be the Australian customs because things that are sent from Australia to the UK get to them really quickly!

Review:

This is the model for the lenses

DIAMETER: 14MM
WATER CONTENT: 38%
BASE CURVE: 8.6

Here are pictures of me wearing these lenses:

With flash

Unlike typical circle lenses, they do not enlarge my eyes at all. As I have said in my previous circle lens review posts, I don't particularly look for lenses that enlarge my eyes because I'm happy with the size of my eyes and I prefer to have a colour change instead :)

To me they do look quite natural and give me hazel eyes which I really wish I had naturally! I love how there's 3 colours in the lens - golden yellow, white yellow and dark brown as the 'outer ring'. Very pretty indeed and the pattern really attracted me :D

Colour: ★★★★★
Pattern:
★★★★★
Enlargement: Very minimal enlargement
Comfort: ★★★
Overall Rating: Love it! 19/20

I don't know if I will purchase from FOTDLOOKS Lenses since lenses will take a really long time to reach me, and that's not Sam's fault at all :( Stupid customs... argh. But if you are from the UK, I highly recommend that you purchase lenses from FOTDLOOKS Lenses because it offers free shipping and the prices for lenses start from 18USD which is a very reasonable price!

My pictures aren't very clear because I used my phone which is only 3mpx :( My digital camera is just annoying me at the moment because all of my AA rechargeable batteries don't seem to work with it! Like I can take a few pictures and then it says 'LOW BATTERY' and completely shuts down -__-

But the newest 'camera' I own is the camera on my iPod Touch =) I camwhored a lot with it since it has the camera at the front too so I can see myself x) But I'll just upload one picture of me with the lenses on because I don't want to picture spam :P

Attempting to look 'ulzzang'
Is it a fail? Haha

  1. They look good on you. But that side that slips down when you're looking up, that's rather freaky. It's not manufactured correctly?
