Geo Princess Mimi Starmish Brown Circle Lens Review

Why, hello, my lovelies! Surprised to see me? I have finally come out from hibernation at last! I know it's been a really LONG time since I've updated, and it does feel a little strange to be typing this right now. I do apologize for disappearing, but around the time of July, I started a new job and was quite busy trying to get the hang of everything. And it got difficult to get back on track with blogging, especially since I had been doing a lot of social media and blogging for my new company. But recently, I've decided that I wanted to get back into the blogosphere and blog when I do have the time. ^^

I was recently contacted by who were kind enough to sponsor me for review purposes. Before I get started on my review, I just have to applaud them for their super speedy shipping times. From the time I chose my lenses to when I actually received them was about less than a week. And please note that they're shipping from Malaysia as well, and since I'm based in the US, this was probably the fastest I've ever received lenses from anywhere. They offer free shipping for orders over $50, and $10 for shipping to the US with a time frame of 3-5 days.

When it comes to circle lens, I have a tendency to stay on the conservative side and I don't really wear other colors besides brown or green. I know the whole MLBB (my-lips-but-better) schtick has been making its rounds in the beauty community. Well, I'm definitely more of a MEBB (my-eyes-but-better) kind of circle lenses girl. The Geo Starmish Brown lenses was a perfect combination of sexy and natural, without coming off too costume-like.

Product Information

I was pleasantly surprised to find the lenses wrapped neatly inside a cute heart shaped box. Other places I have ordered from usually just send the lenses wrapped with many layers of bubble wrap. Like many other circle lens stores, they were kind enough to include an adorable animal contact lens case. 

Upon taking out the lenses, I was a little intimidated by how light they looked. I had never worn any brown lenses besides the normal dark-brown, natural-looking ones, but I was definitely excited to try these, since I've heard nothing but good things. 

Low Light 


However, after putting them on, I was definitely blown away by how beautiful they looked. When it comes to sporting lenses like these, you really do get the best of both worlds. Natural yet vibrant, the Geo Starmish Brown lenses are for people who want something that will stand out but still look subtle enough to complement a look, not overtake it. The pattern is simply gorgeous with a blend of brown, orange and gold and blends well with darker colored eyes. And of course, the outer black rim, which is characteristic of the Geo Princess Mimi lenses, do an excellent job of enlarging and enhancing the color. 

While these lenses do fall into the "Brown" lenses category, I have to say, they are not your typical natural-looking brown lenses that you would use for subtle enhancement. Most people would definitely be able to tell you're wearing colored circle lenses but not in an overly fake way. The best way to describe the color would be along the lines of a gorgeous amber. While I in no way endorse the Twilight Books, I felt a bit vampy with these on and was definitely reminded of their golden eyes.

What I really love about these lenses is how versatile they are. You can wear them with natural looking makeup like I have done here or you can go for a more dark and smokey look. Either way, the color of the lenses really makes the eyes 'pop' while adding just a hint of sexiness. I have to admit, my boyfriend could not stop raving about how much he loved these and my guy friends complimented them. The sparkling, vivid honey color will complement a wide range of styles and look great for those of you who want to sport the gyaru look or Japanese-style makeup. 

Comfort-wise, these are pretty comfortable, but my eyes did start to feel a little tired after about five hours. However, I have found that they don't feel much different from the other 14.5mm lenses I've tried. They felt exactly like most of the other colored varieties in the Geo Princess Mimi series. 


  • Gorgeous amber or honey-brown colored lenses, depending on the lighting 
  • Vivid color payoff without looking overly fake 
  • Beautiful blend of different colors
  • Great enhancement at 14.5mm (which in my opinion is the magic number for circle lenses)
  • Versatile and great for both minimal or heavy makeup
  • Looks natural enough to blend with brown eyes 
  • The ideal lenses for Japanese or gyaru makeup
  • Can feel a bit drying after 5 hours

At $20.90,  I definitely feel like these circle lenses are worth owning. For those of you who like natural lens with a hint of dolly cuteness, you will definitely like these. A lot of brown lenses that don't fall into the darker category, have a tendency to look unnatural, but these are the perfect in-between that you can wear if you want your eyes to stand out without looking too obvious. Will I be purchasing these lenses when it's time for a new pair? In a heartbeat!  

So what did you think of the Geo Starmish Brown circle lenses? Do you own a pair yourself? What are your thoughts upon them? Are these a pair that you would be interested in wearing? And are there any other brown circle lenses that you'd recommend? Let me know in the comments below!
