Review Pink Contact Lens Geo Xtra Sakura WI-A27 PINK
Monday, 2 July 2012
This week has been pretty hectic to say the least, but I finally have found time to do a review for my newest lenses sponsored by Solution-Lens.com! I’ve always wanted to try pink lenses, and always thought the sakura style was really pretty, so I was super excited to receive them in the mail along with my Sesame Grey lenses.
Dia: 15.0 mm
Water Content: 38-42%
Base Curve: 8.7
Life Span: 1 year
Looking at the lenses in their vials, they are a really vibrant pink colour, with a darker rose red colour outlining it. They are flat colours with no gradient effect between the 2 colours. I was a little nervous at first, because I didn’t know how this effect would work out, since I usually stick to the 3 tone blending colours rather then flat out hues. Once they were in my eyes though, the pink colours were only slightly toned down from their bright colours in the vial. My dark eyes helped to blend the harsh line between the two shades of pink and made a really pretty contrast, but wasn’t too crazy in my opinion.
For 15mm, these lenses are very wearable without giving off that bug eyed/ super dolly look. They are pretty big in my opinion, but one they are in they look to be a normal size. Maybe its just because my eyes are huge so they look normal lol who knows 🙂
Even from this far away you can still see a hint of pink 🙂
The comfort with these lenses are less then stellar. I can feel every inch of them as they go into my eyes, and they start feeling dry after only a half hour. Before putting them in the first time, I had to soak them for almost a week to get them soft enough to put in without making my eyes water and feel all the edges scraping my eyeball. With some eye drops, they should be fine, but I would rather not have to put in eye drops all the time.
For the most part, these lenses were pretty decent. The colours very wearable, and the size isn’t too big for the design. The comfort it what brought down the rating of these lenses. I cant stand having an uncomfortable lens so I was disappointed with that aspect. I do like the shade of pink they turn my eyes though, and how noticeable they are, but in a good way. 🙂 I do recommend these lenses, but would advise you keep some eye drops close by.
My next post will be a shopping haul and outfit of the day 🙂 Stay tuned for that!!
