Geo Tri Color Brown Review (Pinkicon Sponsored)

Today I am reviewing a pair of lenses from pinkicon, a Hong Kong based shop that sells everything from circle lenses to wigs and lashes and even Fuji Film cameras. They also offer free shipping and very reasonable prices on year wear circle lenses, with a WIDE variety of lens options (daily, monthly and yearly).
Use coupon code A24680000 and get $5 off any yearly lenses (excluding toric)! 
 I received my lenses on Christmas eve, so it was like an early gift! They came with a lens care guide and a card to help you keep track of your lenses expiration dates, the card is certainly something I'm going to be using. The lenses came in the standard Geo vials for year wear lenses that has the scratch off authenticity check code.
Side note: This pic was taken after I'd opened the vials and realized I should get a picture of it. They, of course, came sealed!

I chose Geo Tri Color Brown (called 3-tone on the site) for review since lately I've been looking for more natural lenses that look nice with lighter and softer looks. I mention this because I think it is important to keep in mind what one is looking/hoping for in a pair of circle lenses when considering the rating the lenses are given. These will definitely not rank highly in terms of enlargement but in this case that's a good thing.

With a diameter of 14.2, enlargement is pretty minimal. So if you're looking for a more natural lens that gives a less obvious enlargement or could still (maybe?) pass as your real eyes, these would be a good choice. It's been a while since I've had lenses with this small a diameter and it's actually quite refreshing !

The pattern is light and natural looking. It blends away your natural eye color by blending into it. That being said, this is a lens like every other sheer patterned lens where your natural color does play a factor in the vibrancy of the color that you end up getting. So results WILL vary from person to person (unlike solid/opaque prints, which render more predictable outcomes). There also is no harsh key hole, which is nice and the pattern does not interfere with your vision if you dart your eyes around, like some larger diameter lenses often do.

The color is surprisingly bold on the eyes, I honestly wasn't expecting as much color as I got. That was my only initial concern about these lenses; how I thought that since the pattern was on the sheer side no brown would read over my eye color at all and, at most, I'd get a hazel green out of these. They proved me wrong though and these give me a light golden brown color that I absolutely adore.

Comfort really is the only downfall of these lenses. It was only so-so which was disappointing since I've always felt that Geo lenses are some of the most comfortable ones out there but these are an exception. They are initially very comfy but begin to dry up after about 2 hours. It's not an unbearable pain or anything but is extremely annoying if you haven't got any eye drops with you.
