Shoppingholics Geo Tri Color Brown review

So quite a while ago, I made some purchases from Shoppingholics.com. I ordered 2 pairs of circle lenses and a set of Dolly Wink falsies. It was my first time ordering from them and I didn't quite know what to expect. First thing that impressed me was their website; so kawaii and aesthetically pleasing, yet very organized with lots of pictures and good descriptions. Their customer service was great and they replied to my emails promptly. The package itself took just slightly over a week to arrive.


When my order arrived, I noticed how much effort they put into the packaging. Their packaging has got to be the nicest out of the all the online shops I've purchased from before. Everything was neatly arranged inside two separate, pretty bags. Inside, all the items were individually bubble-wrapped and the circle lenses were placed in cute little gift boxes that had more bubble wrap inside to protect the vials.


I wouldn't say my order was huge, but they were so generous with the freebies. Together with my order, they gave me a Dainty Design Lavender Mask, a velcro fringe holder, an Anna Sui-inspired mirror and two adorable contact lens cases for free!!


Little 'Thank You' cards like these really make us, customers, feel appreciated. The reminder to soak our lenses before wearing them was very thoughtful.


The two pairs of lenses I ordered this time were Geo Tri Color Brown and Neo Cosmo Glamour Brown.


I'll be reviewing the Geo Tri Color Brown circle lenses today.

Item details
Origin: Korea
Diameter : 14.0mm
Water Content : 38%
Base Curve : 8.6mm
Life Span : 1 year disposal


Comfort level: 4/5
I can wear these for 6-8 hours without any problems, but any longer and my eyes would start to feel quite dry. It's very comfortable and I completely forget that I'm wearing contacts. Then again, I've worn contacts since I was 14 so I'm very used to it.

Enlargement: 2/5
As these are only 14.0mm in diameter, they don't offer much enlargement. Even though I don't think it has much enlarging effects, that is perfectly fine with me. I bought it because I wanted a hint of colour in my eyes.

Colour: 4/5
*note that a 5/5 score would mean that the colour's very obvious even while indoors*
These lenses are exactly what I wanted; it offers a subtle change of eye colour, but nothing unnatural. I know in these photos they look very obvious, but I took these in bright daylight (or facing the window) so I could capture the colour and details. Yes, it's more obvious in daylight, but still looks pretty natural, in my opinion.




I think these are perfect for people who would like to try circle lenses, but don't want to go for those with a wider diameter or the ones with a very dark ring around it.
I can totally wear it without any eye make up. I don't usually wear falsies or have dramatic eye make up on a daily basis, so this is perfect for every day wear. I've a couple of other circle lenses and I alternate between them for classes.



If you're interested in purchasing circle lenses, I'd highly recommend Shoppingholics.com

  3. Haha I thought you were supposed to be on a shopping ban?

    I'm really impressed with shoppingholics service and packaging. They really put it a lot of effort to wrap everything separately and those boxes are lovely.

    I love subtle colour contact lenses so I quite like the brown one you featured. I think I'm gonna click on their site after this.

  13. I've always wanted to try circle lenses...but I'm afraid of how my eyes would react to them (even though, like you, I've been wearing contacts since 14). Glad you had a great shopping experience w/them though! :] That's always a plus. Loving the lenses on you though. They are very natural...but still very pretty. ^^

  21. The packaging is exquisite. I especially like the little boxes that the lenses came in, you could use them as storage boxes for jewellery and things.

    I love your writing style. It's very "readable".

    You have a wonderful blog, so I will defintily be checking back to read more of what you have to say. Good luck with it (although I am sure you don't need it).

    All the best,
    Voe.
