Circle Lens Review - GEO Mimi Café Macchiato Brown

After 2 weeks of unplanned hiatus (busy weekends :p), I am back to review another pair of circle lenses: GEO Mimi Café Macchiato Brown. These are part of the new series from GEO inspired by cafe drinks. They all have very unique designs, and are also very enlarging. 

Macchiato Brown has a vortex-like pattern with multiple shades of brown, to imitate the drink that the design is based on. They look really cool up close, while being quite a good match for my natural eye color.

These lenses are listed as 15.0mm, so they are really enlarging. I think makeup is definitely needed for wearing these lenses. :D

The GEO Hurricane series have a similar swirly design, so here are some comparison photos. The Macchiato Brown have a more obvious swirl to them when compared to the Hurricane Brown, and they are also bigger in diameter.

Here are some comparison with the popular GEO Princess Mimi Brown lenses. They seem to be the same size, but the Mimi Browns have a black outer ring while the Macchiato Brown has a dark brown outer ring.

Here are all the lenses worn in this review. Clockwise from the top: Macchiato Brown right side up (showing off the really cool design), Hurricane Brown, Macchiato Brown upside down, Mimi Brown.

FINAL VERDICT:
Design: 10/10 - One of the most interesting designs I have seen so far
Enlargement: 10/10 - Huge! :D
Comfort: 10/10 - They are surprising thin, and very comfortable.
TOTAL: 10/10 - Very nice lenses, but definitely need to be paired with makeup.

Ohhh, dag those are lovely! I wanted them but I was thinking they'd be lighter. However, I think the color looks good. I also have dark brown eyes.
