Circle Lens Review - GEO Hurricane Hazel HC-106 (sponsored by eye love sushi)

This is my review for GEO Hurricane Hazel (HC-106), sponsored by eye love sushi. I already own these lenses in Brown (reviewed here), but Anna from eye love sushi offered these lenses for me to review, so here it is! :)

I only got these lenses in plano, so I probably won't wear them for going out. The color blends really nice with my own eye color, but give it a subtle pattern.

As I said above, the color of these hazel lenses blend really well with my own eye color. For those who like natural looking lenses, these are for you. :)

Enlargement wise, these are decent without being bug-eyed.

Here are some comparison pics with the Hurricane Browns I have. I am a fan of stronger colored lenses, so I have to say I prefer the Browns more (the amber color is really sweet). However, it is easier to see the "hurricane" swirly pattern in the Hazels even though they are darker.

Here is another comparison with Honey Wing Brown, a favorite among natural lens fans. I think the Wings look a bit smaller than the Hurricane Hazels.

Here are all the lenses featured in this review. Clockwise from top: Hurricane Hazel upside down, Hurricane Brown, Hurricane Hazel right side up, Honey Wing (All from GEO).
Design: 8/10 - Awesome design, but color is a bit dark for my taste.
Enlargement: 9/10 - Decent enlargement.
Comfort: 9/10 - Feels fine for the 10 minutes I wore them for this review
TOTAL: 8.5/10 - I still love my Hurricane Browns more, but these are quite nice :)

Thank You eye love sushi for the lenses!

Oh wow! Lovely review as usual~ ;D Those blend in really well! But I do have to agree that I would like them a little lighter like your brown ones :]

i love your circle lens reviews!!
How natural would you rate these on a scale of 1 to 10?
Would people look at you with these lenses on and be like..."whoa there are swirls in your eyes"?
and are they glossy like the first picture or was that just the lighting?

Rachel: Hurricane Hazels are natural-looking in terms of color, and the swirl is not that obvious unless people are less than 2 feet from your face IMO. As for glossiness, I think it is just the lighting. :)
