GEO Super Nudy Quarter Brown + Tri-Color World Grey Lens Review
Thank you so much to everyone for your feedback on my previous entry! I will definitely be taking all the information into consideration for planning my trip!
I am so backed up with lens reviews -- I really need to catch up! At least it gives me an excuse to do my make-up haha. Today I will be reviewing the Geo Super Nudy Quarter Brown lenses and the Tri-color World Grey lenses which were both sponsored by Eyecandy Lens.
Eyecandy Lens is based in Hong Kong and delivery took 12 days to my home in the US. They do issue you a tracking number which is nice if you want to keep tabs on your package. The lenses each came with their own contact cases and arrived in cute little pouches.

The GEO Super Nudy Quarter Brown lens is a light brown, almost hazel-ish lens that claim to give your eyes a nice sparkle. They were specially designed for Japanese fashion model, Hoshi Aya.
Although they are only 14mm in diameter, they surprisingly gave my eyes a nice little enlargement (probably due to the thick black outer ring) and a definite "dolly eye" effect. My eyes are a medium-light brown instead of the traditional dark brown Asian eyes so I normally don't wear brown contacts but these give me a pleasant pop of color -- kind of looks like a cat's eyes?
The Geo Super Nudy Quarter Brown lens comes in a plain non prescription all the way to a -10.0 prescription which is awesome for my -9.5 eyes. They are pretty comfortable but I do tend to feel them in my eyes when I blink. The lenses are currently on sale for $22.80 at Eyecandy Lens.
The second lenses are the GEO Tri-Color World Grey. As the name indicates, there are 3 colors blended into this lens and it has sort of a gradient effect. These are also 14mm but offer no enlarging effect. They brighten my medium brown eyes to a blueish grey and I find the overall effect similar to the NEO Lucky Clover Blue lens or even my regular ol Acuvue 2 colored grey lenses.
These are a bit more comfortable than the other pair and you could probably get away with wearing them all day (if you had to). The thing I like about blue and grey lenses as opposed to brown lenses is that they kind of give you a more "made up" look. These also come in a non prescription or prescriptions up to -10.0 and are currently on sale for $22.88 at Eyecandy Lens.
