This quickie post is all about circle lenses. I know circle lenses are not for everyone. Personally though, I LOVE them. I am a fan of that whole "alien-esque, other- worldly" look thing. I think it's fun to be able to play up the size and shape of my eyes now and then :D. The lenses featured in this post were sent to me by the lovely people at www.lensvillage.com. Featured are the Geo Xtra Forest lenses in Brown. Now, let me tell you why I love these....

These lenses have a diameter of 15mm, which puts them on the larger side. For many people these can take some adjusting to. For me, the larger lenses seem to be more comfortable. I only feel them for the first few seconds they are in. After a few minutes everything is back to normal. This can vary from person to person. Most circle lenses are designed for dark eyes. Since my eyes are a light Green, these don't create as dramatic an effect as they would over dark eyes. They create enough interest to "freak" people out for a second ;).
The Geo Xtra Forest brown lenses have a good enlarging effect as they have a pretty dark outer ring. They are not a dark Brown, more of a light Hazel tone. As you can see on my eyes they kinda blend into my natural color, but still gave an interesting look thanks to the Black accents in the color pattern. From further away my eyes look Hazel-y, and huge! You can see a full face shot on my instagram.
