EOS Super Neon G209 Pink

Like I promised, I have a few contacts that need reviewing in my possession. I like to be able to wear the contacts for at least a few days so I can better assess comfort and such. Because of this, I will not be able to do all the reviews for my new contacts all at once . First here are the EOS super neon G209 pink.


base curve: 8.8
diameter: 14.5 mm
make: EOS super neon
water content: 38%

Comparison (one in, one out):

And for the ratings..

Color/design: 4/5. The pattern of the super neon's is really pretty I think. However if you are looking for a natural looking lens, this is not for you. The black, thick limbal ring would make it hard this contact to look natural even if you got them in a natural color. Seeing as natural wasn't what I was going for, it works out. The contact is really opaque, which is what I was looking for because I didn't want my green to show though and distort the pink. However, I was thinking that these would be a brighter pink. Instead, they are more of a baby pink and in some lightings they can look like a really light pretty brown. That is ok, and I still like them, they do not look freakish or anything. They are very girly which I like because I'm extremely girly. :) Of course in the sun my pupil shrinks up pretty small and so you can see my green through the middle. This is not very noticeable unless you are gazing closely into my eyes and plus I mostly wear circle lenses when going out, which is at night and my pupil is large enough to fill the hole. So, overall not an issue.

Comfort: 4/5. They aren't uncomfortable per say, but just not as comfy as my geo's. It might be because these are a little larger, but I find that I have to apply drops to my eyes about 4 hours into wearing these things. I guess that isn't so bad, and like I said my eyes may just need a bit more time to get use to them. So a little drying, but overall comfy.

Enlargement: 4/5. These suckers are pretty big. Of course I don't have much bases from comparison, but they cover a good amount of my eye and the black limbal ring really makes them pop. If it makes it easier to see the enlarging effect, I will post a photo of my eyes with one contact in and one out. Let me know if this would help in the comments!

Vendor: 5/5 This is my second time ordering from and they are still flawless. :)

Also please leave any other suggestions, remarks, opinions, etc in the comments.

I hope you find my review useful! :)

Contact Overload

Ok so I may have been a little too excited with sales going on right now.. but here are four contacts you can expect to see a review for in the very near future:

EOS super neon G209 purple
EOS super neon G209 pink
EOS G307 turquoise
Geo Xtra WT-A0 hearts green

So keep on the lookout for those!

Also, if you have light eyes and you wear circle lenses, let me know please! I was thinking it may be a good idea to get a list going of all of us since it is sometimes pretty tough to tell what contacts without a brown eye base.

I'm Seeing Stars

It's true that I put off doing a review of my lenses for quite some time. School fought to rule over my life for a bit of time and won the battle. Never the less, here they are. My geo t-star lenses:

Comparison (one in, one out):

p.s. It would be beautiful if you could go ahead and ignore my face and focused on the eye color. ^-^

A little bit about these contacts:
base curve: 8.6
diameter: 14.0 mm
make: geo t-stars

Now that you have seen the picture and know the info, lets move on to the business of rating them.

Color/design: 5/5. Gorgeous. I seriously cannot fathom anyone not wanting stars in their eyes. The stars are bold and noticeable, however unless people are really looking at my eyes, they think the stars are just cool flecks in my natural eye color. I did not expect these to be natural looking, but apparently they can be. I know these are my first pair of lenses, but I already feel like they will be my favorite.

Comfort: 5/5 hands down. I cannot feel these bad boys in my eyes even many hours after they have been in. I have had them since November, so I've got a lot of chances to wear them. I can wear them all day and not feel discomfort. I usually throw in some eye drops if I wear them longer than 8 hours just to be on the safe side, but these contacts seriously rock. The only time I felt discomfort of any kind was because I fell asleep in them (which is very bad, don't do it).

Enlargement: 2/5. I was surprised that these gave any enlargement at all being only 14.0 mm in diameter. However the color is really close to the edge of the contact and the darker limbal ring stands out against my light eyes causing my iris' to look slightly larger. The lack of enlargement doesn't bother me really because the point was the stars and that is what I got. :)

Vendor: 5/5 As I mentioned in my previous post, I bought these contacts from I was a touch worried because after I placed my order, I read about some people having problems with this site. I'm not sure if these issues were old and have since been resolved or if I am just a lucky one because I had a great experience with this seller. The price is amazing!! ($20 per pair plus free shipping) and I got my contacts a week after I ordered them. I contacted them a couple of times just to ensure good communication and they always got back to me. So overall no complaints about the vendor!

I'll edit this with better photos, but if you have any other questions please feel free to leave them in the comments!
