Huge Circle Lens Haul!

Hey guys! Today I want to share with you my big haul from Pinky Paradise! It's that time of the year again, I need to stock up on circle lenses again. If you didn't know, I'm very nearsighted, so I wear glasses most of the time, but circle lenses when I do my make-up. My lashes are so long that they make my glasses dirty, even though I wear my glasses pretty far down on the nose. Just having moisturizer residue on them is a huge pain, now imagine mascara! Opposite windshield wipers. Anyway, it's been about a year since last time I stocked up, and now I'm on my last pair, so I ordered a bunch of new lenses. I placed the order on friday, and they arrived at our door yesterday!

EOS Dolly Eye Violet
I haven't worn violet contacts since sometime in my teens, and I decided to be adventurous and try it again! I really love this color, and it's super opaque! I'm definitely opening these first.

Geo Princess Mimi Almond Brown (Bambi series)
These are a long-time favorite of mine. The past years I've stuck to browns and blacks, since I've preferred my eyes to look more natural, but still have that little extra. These are perfect for that!
So these are ones I will buy again and again.
Geo Ultra CK105


Not sure if I've owned these particular ones before, but this is the typical black lens I would get. As you can see it's similar to the pair above. My eyes are so dark that you can rarely tell that my lenses are actually black - just that they're big and shiny, hahaha.

Princess Pinky Cloudy Red
Super Wine Red


I decided to be even MORE adventurous! I don't think I've ever tried red lenses before, I'm not into the whole halloween look. But these seem to be pretty subtle, and hopefully will show up on my eyes! I had a terrible time trying to tell them apart for this LOL

Princess Pinky Radiance Honey Brown
 Aand another brown pair. These are a little lighter though, so they will definitely make my eyes pop. Those were all of the ones I ordered, but wait, there's more! I got two more pairs for free! :D

G&G Big DM23 Blue (I think)
GEO Diamond Pink


These are colors that I usually wouldn't go for - blue ones tend to look very gray on me, I feel I look like a white tiger, haha. The design on the blue ones are fine though, and we'll just have to see how the color shows up on my eyes. The pink diamonds are SUPER crazy in my opinion! But I'll give them a go, why not? They made sure even these two were in my prescription.

And of course, the adorable little cases you get for every pair you order. I think they're great! But they do end up in the trash with the lenses they've been housing. Even though this site says most of their contacts last a year, you shouldn't keep them that long. I use each pair for 3 months, sometimes I stretch it to four. Back in high school when I wore circle lenses all day every day, that's the amount of time they would last until they literally ripped. And like eye make-up, 3 months is a good rule of thumb for hygienic reasons. Be careful with your eyes, you've only got one pair!

So now I suddenly have lenses for the next two years, haha. But I'm considering since some of them are pretty crazy, I could open one natural and one crazy at a time, and switch between them depending on the setting I'll be in. What did you think of my haul? Have you tried circle lenses?

    1. Hahaha shut up! XD They are bigger than normal colored contacts though, as you've probably seen every time I wear contacts

  2. Why are lenses so important to women when they wear glasses? My gf never wears glasses whenever she put on make up. I really don't understand, is it because of the eye makeup?

    1. For me personally it's because mascara would smudge onto my glasses - my natural lashes already touch my glasses. Plus glasses kind of hide the make-up - and I don't really like the look of glasses. Oh and glare in pictures! So lots of reasons, haha.
