review : GEO Café Mimi Macchiato Lens

January 20, 2012 No comments

Hello everyone! Today's post will be a contact lens review. Finally, after months of delay! (Some of the photos here were taken last October, lol!) This is my review of the second of the two pairs that I got from The Purpektion Shop. These are Café Mimi Macchiato Lenses* from GEO.

The lenses up close. The design is so unique!

Lenses when worn, up close.

A comparison of the lenses when worn: under natural light and indoors.

If you've read my review of the other lenses from this series, the GEO Café Mimi Latte lenses, then you must already know that I got really curious about these lenses because I love coffee a lot~ These are pretty much the same with the Latte ones, except that these have a thicker limbal ring. Other than that, no major differences.

Color & Design: ★★★☆☆
This series has failed me yet again! I didn't get coffee eyes ; ^ ; Even though I really like how these blended with my eyes, they blended in a bit too much. This was my same problem with the Latte ones. Under natural light, all you can see is the swirl but the tiny black dots that's supposed to resemble chocolate syrup just disappears. Indoors, you can barely see the design at all! So disappointed ; ^ ;

Enlargement: ★★★★★
The enlargement is the same as the Latte ones, 15mm! Just look at how huge these made my eyes. Super huge dolly eyes, but not so much that they look alien-ish. The outer ring is still brown, but a bit thicker than what the Latte ones have.

Comfort: ★★★★★
Again, for 15mm lenses, these are very comfortable! No blurriness or anything. I don't even remember I have them on sometimes!

Overall: ★★★☆☆
Giving this a 3/5, just because I don't like that the design disappears when worn. Too bad though, cos the design looked so nice and vivid on its own. I wish the color was more opaque and that the coffee design was more visible, really. That's all these lenses are lacking, I think ; w ; But still, if you're looking for nice, natural-looking but enlarging everyday lenses, I do recommend these. If I were to choose between the Café Mimi Macchiato lenses and the Latte lenses, I think I prefer the latter more. I'm not sure why, but I seem to like how they blend into my eyes more. Maybe because I prefer the thinner limbal ring? Not really sure, but for me Latte > Macchiato.

Up next for review are my first pair of grey lenses, GEO Café Mimi Waffle Grey
