Circle lens: GEO Berry Holic (XTRA) Brown review on green eyes

Hello hello~
Ahh, it`s so hard to find circle lens reviews on light colored (gray, green, blue) eyes! Before buying I want to know how opaque they are, if they blend well or just leave a huge hole in the middle. But often I have to refer to reviews on dark brown eyes, because there is nothing else. But fear not my light colored eye-friends! I review every pair of lenses I buy & recently, after a very long time I got new circle lenses!
I hope it`s helpful for blue/green/gray eyed circle lens fans. :D


GEO Berry Holic (XTRA) Brown


I got them from Eye Candy`s, for almost 24$ including shipping with took about 2 weeks. 
Brand: GEO / Origin: South Korea 
Water content: 38%  / Diameter: 15.0 mm 
Base Curve: 8.6  / Duration: 1 year disposable

I have only had them a couple days but I`ve been wearing them almost every day. They are comfortable and I don`t feel them in my eyes at all, but after a couple hours they do feel a little bit dry. (Best to use eye drops with those lenses). Design wise - I want definitely expecting something more opaque!! They are quite see through. But they also blend very well with my eye color, it`s almost impossible to tell where my iris ends and the lens color begin (that`s GOOD). They are bigger than my eye and give a bit of a halo effect. The ring around the lens is brown-black and not thick, reminds me of houndstooth - not my favorite part of the design, but I can live with it. ;) Overall, they remind me of GEO Nudy Grey circle lens style, so if you don`t like those and think they give "lizzard eye" effect, you probably won`t like GEO Berry Holic XTRA Brown either. (I love the nudy series effect!)

How they look on their own. Brown.

On my gray-green eye without flash. 
They don`t look brown unfortunately, maybe hazely-golden-greenish if you look really hard. XD

With flash. They blend perfectly with green eyes! But they don`t look brown. Poop.

My whole face (excuse the wet hair) in daylight (it`s winter so it`s not very bright).

How they fit into my whole face, with flash. 

Overall, I must say I quite like them. They don`t give me the brown eyes I was hoping for. They have a more golden green look which is hard to describe for me. The enlargement is visible, but natural. The only unnatural thing is the halo effect with the houndstooth outer ring, but it`s not very thick or black, so still it can pass as semi-natural. They are comfortable and come with prescription (so I don`t have to wear my -1,5 glasses yay). I would say they are good for daytime circle lenses and also "dolly" look.

I hope you have enjoyed my review. ^^v

  2. Haha, I just found your blog yesterday when searching for circle lens pictures. Your other posts about them were pretty old, and I was wondering if maybe circle lenses were starting to get dated!

    Do you have any recommendations for natural looking lenses for blue eyes? I ordered the Geo Nudy gray's and the Geo Nudy Twin in blue. I don't care what color the lenses are, I just don't want them to look obviously fake ^_^

    Thank you for visiting and commenting ^^v
    About blue lenses, well... depends on what results you want I guess. If you want super natural I`m just go for regular tinted lenses from western brands (acuvue and so on). If you want circle lens, go for something with thin outer ring, preferably three tone and see through pattern - it will blend the best with light eyes! There are so many to choose from:

    I heard geo nudy blue isn`t very intensive in color, but I`m sure you will love the delicate effect :D
