On Monday, I received a package from my lens sponsor Mukuchu
This time she sent me a pair of lenses from the Geo Xtra WT-A5 series in Blue
Let's have some infooo
POWER/PRESCRIPTION: 0.00 (Plano) only
LENS USAGE: UP TO 1 YEAR
SHELF LIFE: 3 YEARS
MANUFACTURER / ORIGIN: SOUTH KOREA
WATER CONTENT: 38%
At 15mm these are probably the largest lenses I have tried before
|Urgh face-hate day|
The lenses look rather purple in the picture but in a proper light they are actually really bright.
Looking at them in the lens container, they don't look that big and on putting them in, they didn't really strike me as being particularly huge and only realized they were 15mm when I checked on Mukuchu's site XD
They were really easy to get in, maybe because they're thicker than most other lenses I've had.
I really like how the design shows up with the flash on but in natural light (which is hard to show in my bedroom) they look quite plasticy and the blue doesn't blend in with my natural colour as well as I might have hoped.

As pretty as I thought they were they were really drying on my eyes. My vision was really impaired after about an hour and they felt prickly. I can't really say if it was my eyes being over-sensitive to them or that it was just a trait of the lenses in general, it could be down to the thickness of the lenses but I'm really not too sure.
Design: ★★★ I wish the blue covered more of my natural eye colour.
Comfort: ★★ They were really prickly after only an hour of wear -_-
I wrote this review yesterday but on waking up today and having another look at them, they've grown on me quite a bit. They are lovely lenses and they go great with most makeup styles but my main concern was how drying it was no my eyes. I know everyone eyes are different so not everyone will experience the same effects on their eyes and if you do want to try the lenses, don't let what I said about them put you off (for all i know, I probably didn't clean them properly and need new clean solution)
Currently, all GEO 15mm lenses on Mukuchu's site are only US $20 which is about £12!!

Jus' sayin, but Mukuchu is really fast with shipping. Whenever she sends me stuff it only takes a little over a week to arrive and that's from Australia!
