I got 2 pairs - a grey pair and a green pair (as pictured). I purchased them from one of the many sellers from the CTMA Centre in Mongkok. CTMA Centre is one of the MUST shop places everytime for me and the boy when we visit HK each year. For him it's for the hobby stuff while I go for the little shops filled with boxes containing all sorts of beauty products and knick knacks.
The pair below are from the "Angel colour" range in CM-833. I haven't opened these ones yet (only my grey ones) but I wanted to show you guys how they're packaged. I can't remember the price I got them for exactly but they set me back only about $100Hk (about $13Aus at the time) or 2 for $160Hk (about $22 at the time)+ free contact lens case for each pair I THINK . Please excuse the poor memory! But nonetheless they were a steal compared to the ridiculous prices I have seen around Sydney - $40 or something a pair at one place in Chinatown and $35 from Asianfashioncity site!!
The pair below are what I've been wearing and they're from the "Magic colour 3-tone" range in CM -901. Before wearing them, you need to get rid of the solution the lens come in and soak the lens in regular contact lens solution for about 6hrs. I soaked them overnight just to be safe.
The contacts are pretty comfy to wear and feel just like normal soft contact lens. You can still see my natural eye colour with the lens on though. Do they make my eyes look bigger??
Now I was told by the sales girl when I bought them that the lens last about 6 months, however on Asianfashioncity they say they can last for 1yr. I am very sceptical about them lasting 1yr. Please correct me if I'm wrong as I'm not an optometrist - these contacts may very well be made of some super special material allowing them to last a year however I doubt that. I've worn soft contacts for more than 5yrs now and soft contacts usually need to be changed every month.
I know that with Orthokeratology(Ortho K) though where you wear hard contact lens, that they can last more than 2yrs with special care as my sister has had this treatment for 8+yrs. I will most likely wear these until they feel uncomfortable and then try my green ones out!
My face of the day (FOTD) yesterday where you can see the Geo lens better:
To see the full range of Geo lens click here. I know next time I visit HK i will be purchasing other colours if not ALL! I regret not buying more when I was over there. I think they're a great way of achieving the "doll" look and it's a different way of accessorising in a sense. Plus I think they look great!
