Circle Lens Review - GEO Hurricane Brown (HC-104)

Here is my review for the Geo Hurricane Brown circle lens. I think these are one of the most lovely lenses I have ever worn, the pattern is AMAZING. :D

I originally ordered these lenses in hazel, but changed my mind and asked the seller to send me brown instead. I still have not seen any reviews of the hazels, but I am glad I chose brown instead because the color is awesome.

As you can tell from the pictures, the lenses have a very natural starburst of color with a slightly darker outer ring. The pattern is not harsh at all, and the color brings amazing warmth to my eyes. The reason these are called "hurricane" is because there is a subtle swirly pattern on them, but you can't really see it when worn. Look at the pic at the end of the review for the lenses in their case, and you will see the swirly pattern.

Enlargement-wise, they are middle of the road. No scary uber-large doll eyes here. :)

I think the Hurricane Browns have overtaken the EOS Max Pure Brown as my favourite "Warm Brown Eyes" lenses :) Here are some comparison pics, and you can see the color of the Max Pure are grayer, but they are larger in size than the Hurricane.

Here is another comparison with the uber-huge GEO Super Nudy Brown. The pattern on the Hurricane is so much more natural compared to the Nudy.

Here are all the lenses worn in this review. Clockwise from the top: Hurricane Brown upside down, Max Pure Brown, Hurricane Brown right side up, Super Nudy Brown. The swirly pattern is clearly seen here. :)

FINAL VERDICT:
Design: 10/10 - Tons of love for the design :D
Enlargement: 9/10 - Decent enlargement, close to 14.5mm I think.
Comfort: 9/10 - Feels fine for the 10 minutes I wore them for this review
TOTAL: 9.5/10 - I might get these in other colors as well, I hope they will have pink!

yangIsabelle: I think they are closer to 14.5mm, since the enlargement is noticeable.
