GEO XTRA Nova Brown WT-B44 Review
Finally I get around reviewing my so far favorite pair of circle lens, theGEO XTRA Nova Brown WT-B44 from the Geo Nova Series.
I bought these lenses from iwantcute.com
. This is not my first purchase from them and I am very content with their service!
What I love about their store is that they are located in the UK, which means I usually only have to wait for 2-4 days for my circle lenses to arrive. Most other circle lens onlinestores seem to be located in Asia and sometimes it takes weeks for my lenses to get here.
The GEO XTRA Nova Brown WT-B44 are brown lenses, but the color on the lenses actually looks more like a yellow than the brown you will usually see on brown lenses. Surprisingly enough these yellowish-brown lenses fit my natural green eyesperfectly!
Circle lenses are mostly manufactured for the Asian market, so for very dark eyes. Therefore some of the colors look really bright and artificial. When I buy green circle lenses the green always looks very artificial. That’s why I have switched to brown lenses, though usually they don’t fit my green eyes, but look less creepy. I am really happy to have found a color that matches my natural eye color well and blends in wonderfully. It gives me a great enlargement effect without giving my eyes a weird color.
The Geo Nova circle lenses are also available in the colors blue, green, gray and violet.
Now to the basic data of the GEO XTRA Nova Brown WT-B44:
Base Curve 8.6
Water % of Content: 42%
Lens Type: 1 year disposable
Manufacturer: Geo Medical
As always: I do not advice to wear any kind of soft contact lens for a year! Personally I have been wearing these for a little over a month now (2-3 days a week) and I will probably give them another month before I throw them away.
Of course, like all lenses by Geo Medical they contain a authenticity seal on the bottle.
Yeah! Save to go!
And here is what they look like when worn:
Sometimes I wonder whether, specifically for such reviews, I should put on heavy gyaru make-up, because that seems how peopel wear circle lenses, but then again, that is just not me…
Design: I cannot even express how happy I am that they blend in with my natural eye color so well because they give me exactly the effect I want:
Because they have a diameter of 15mm, they are really large circle lenses and give me a really good enlargement effect, making my eyes look way bigger. They also have a thick dark circle (with the name “circle lens” you should think that all do this, but many circle lenses actually don’t really have a significant circle) and there isn’t too much “design” in them. Unless you look at the close-up photo, you will see that you don’t really notice much besides the dark circle, and that’s how I prefer my circle lenses.
Comfort: The comfort of these is also amazing! They are the biggest circle lenses I have worn so far and I was expecting for the comfort to be worse, but, even though I always feel that I am wearing lenses, they don’t hurt or make my eyes too dry and I can wear them for hours (there are some circle lenses that I have to take out after 1 or two hours).
I even once accidentally put them in the wrong way around, and while I noticed that there was something wrong, the comfort was still equal to some of the “worst” comfortable circle lenses I have worn.
The only downside of this is that the GEO XTRA Nova circle lenses degrade my vision! This probably isn’t a big deal when you have perfect vision and it is not very significant. But I have poor vision to begin with and for me these circle lenses make the difference between “I can hardly see what the sign over there says and have to focus and try hard to read it” and “I cannot see what the sign over there says at all”.
Overall I can say that I still love these circle lenses.
I still have a few others to try out first, but I will most likely get back to these when I buy new ones.
I can just recommend them to anyone who wants a natural color and great enlargement effect!
