Rainbow Color lenses review


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.

Origin: Korea
Diameter : 14.2 mm
Water Content : 42%
Base Curve : 8.6mm
Life Span : 3 months disposable

Earth Brown and Wood Ash


How pretty is the packaging?

In each box are two vials containing the lenses and a contact lens case, too.

Wood Ash

Wood Ash

Comfort: 5/5
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.

Enlargement: 2/5
At 14.2mm, they don't offer much enlargement, but that is totally cool with me.

Colour: 4/5
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!

Comfort: 3/5
These weren't as comfortable as Wood Ash and I had to remove them after about 5 hours.

Enlargement: 2/5
Not much enlargement either.

Colour: 2/5
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.

  1. love the wood ash :D i think the earth brown would be better on people that wear heavier make up >< it has that alien effect~~

  2. I agree that Wood Ash looks really nice on you. The 2nd pair looks a bit reptilian like, especially in flash photos. I didn't know that Cheesie had a collaboration with GEO lenses :)

  3. 0o0o I didn't know these are a Cheesie collaboration, I don't follow her blog though so that's probably why haha I like xiaxue more =P You look lovely with both contacts but I think I like wood ash more since the other is quite striking. Hahaha when the bf and I are in Asia the "holding the door" thing goes out the window, especially in China but we still do it in hk for certain ppl like seniors =)

  4. I think Earth Brown gives me the vampire look...in a bad way :(
    Maybe it needs heavier make up

  5. Yeah, I looked carefully at some pics and I think it definitely needs false eyelashes and heavier eye make up

  6. You can order them online. They ship worldwide :)

  8. Haha wouldn't rainbow lenses be cool?

  9. The Wood Ash really is such a pretty colour. Yeah, I reckon Earth Brown needs to go with false eyelashes and the like

  10. Definitely heavier make up would work for Earth Brown. It's so striking! Yeap, she made and wears these. She is Really pretty :D

  11. Earth Brown is too striking for my liking. Yeap, the series is brand new :D

  12. Haha I didn't know we could only choose one between the two :) I like reading both their blogs

  13. I love the first pair on you too... wood ash is very subtle but also very noticeable at the same time - they look very natural on you!

  14. ooo I bought earthbrown as well recently, I'm not a fan of the colour either (a bit unnatural) but I find it can look rather good if you wear heavy make up (lots of black liner looks best!)

    ReplyDelete
  15.  Yeap, I really like Wood Ash :D

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yeap, I totally agree with you. I'm not much of a heavy make up user so I'm afraid these will go to waste :(

    ReplyDelete
  17. Haha of course you can read both blogs! I just prefer xx more's, not that there's anything wrong with cheesies!

  19. I love the Wood Ash too!! really prettY! a bit sad, it doesn't provide much enlargement, but it is still very prettY! The Earth Brown would probably look good for heavy makeup ^_^~

  21. I'm so jealous that you were able to get these, I've been eyeing them for ages but I haven't been sure. I really like the Earth Brown eyes on you actually.

  26. I LOVE how the first one looks on you! I see what you're saying about Earth Brown but I think it would look better with more make-up maybe? Are these the ones Cheesie always wear? I've been noticing she's been uploading more photos of herself wearing less make-up and she's naturally pretty! /OT

  27. You just need alot of make up to carry it off. :)
