If you've been following me on Twitter (@everydayoutfits) and Instagram (@joey_wongby), you'd have seen me happily showing off my latest contact lens haul. Yeap, the pretty, colourful boxes above contain contact lenses!
This series is a collaboration between Cheesie (a famous Malaysian blogger) and GEO Medical (Korean manufacturers of circle lenses).
There is only ONE website that is allowed to sell these lenses (Cheesie approved!) and that is Tokyoninki. They offer free shipping within Malaysia and there was also a special Buy 3 Free 1 deal going on, so I decided to get Wood Ash, Earth Brown, Storm Grey and Sky Blue.
You can also get them at Sasa outlets in Malaysia, but I think they're only available in Plano.
Today I'll be reviewing Wood Ash and Earth Brown.
Diameter : 14.2 mm
Water Content : 42%
Base Curve : 8.6mm
Life Span : 3 months disposable

How pretty is the packaging?
In each box are two vials containing the lenses and a contact lens case, too.
It's super comfortable. I wore it to work from morning to evening, so that was roughly a total of 12 hours (I know I shouldn't and I normally don't, but I just wanted to test the comfort level of these lenses) and my eyes only started feeling a little uncomfortable towards the end of the day.
At 14.2mm, they don't offer much enlargement, but that is totally cool with me.
The colour is uber pretty and very natural. I'm not sure my pictures do it justice, but it lightened my dark brown eyes considerably without looking weird.
How much do I like them? 5/5
So glad I made the choice to get Wood Ash. I am in LOVE with these!

These weren't as comfortable as Wood Ash and I had to remove them after about 5 hours.
Not much enlargement either.
Frankly, I'm not a fan of the colour. The colour change looks very unnatural on me. They look alright in pictures, but not in person. To get an idea of how it looks like in real life, you can refer to my picture below (the one with flash), except even scarier lol.
How much do I like them? 2/5
I will be very honest and say I'm not a fan of these. Cheesie wears them SO well, but on me it just looks very odd.

As you can see, I'm super happy with Wood Ash and it's my current favourite pair of circle lenses. Unfortunately, I'm severely disappointed with Earth Brown. I think it would definitely look good with the right make up, but it's just not for me.
