I love circle lenses. To me, circle lenses and makeup go hand in hand and I don't think I can ever live (happily [yes, putting in lenses and putting on makeup makes me happy]) without either of these in my life.
I think I started wearing circle lenses about the same time that I started wearing makeup, which is when I was around 17 years old if I remember correctly. I started off by wearing daily disposable ones but that became way too expensive in the long run. I then started exploring other options and I have since tried many 6-month or yearly lenses.
I prefer circle lenses that are towards the natural end of the spectrum. I like ones that look natural but still give subtle enlargement and definition. Also, I am not too fond of lenses that make me look like this--> O.O
I recently tried out the Geo Mari Gold Gray (or grey, my Mac laptop doesn't like it when I type grey even though I already specify that I use Australian spelling). IT IS PERFECT!!
The Geo Mari Gold Series is available in 4 colours: Blue, Violet, Gray & Brown.

HOW TO OPEN CONTACT LENS BOTTLE
Just in case you don't already know, I thought I might as well show you how to open a contact lens bottle.
|First, locate the arrow marking on the lid.|
|Then, lift up the plastic portion of the lid from the direction of the arrow. After that, you should hold the lid and twist to one direction of your choice to peel off the metal portion of the lid.|
|However, 9 out of 10 times, it will most likely snap and leave you with this finger cutting hazard.|
|If that happens, I suggest using a tweezer to lift up the remaining metal portion and lift the lid off. Easy~|

WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE ON
P/s: The Geo Mari Gold Gra(e)y lenses are ones that I wore in my recent blog posts HERE, HERE & HERE.
I am very much in love with the Geo Mari Gold Gray Lenses. The 14.2mm diameter means that it looks very natural with a subtle enlarging effect. The very thin black outer ring also defines the eyes in a very natural manner without being too stark. In terms of colour, since the grey portion of the lens is semi opaque, it is not going to mask over darker eye colors completely. I find that on my dark brown eyes, it gives a grey tinge and my natural eye color is still somewhat visible. The GENIUS gold specks design in the middle add a sparkle to the eyes that I absolutely love!!
These lenses are also very very comfortable. You cannot feel these lenses when you have them on and I can (probably shouldn't though) wear these lenses for up to 8 hours, sometimes without having to put in eye drops because I don't experience any discomfort or dryness when wearing these.

|The lenses were packaged in a mesh drawstring bag.|
You also get a free lens case with every pair of lenses that you order. The lid of this case is clear so it is especially convenient if you own multiple pairs of lenses because you can see what is in each case.
