LTHP Quickies! Geo Xtra Diamond Purple Lenses from Lensvillage.com

(**Press Sample**)
Friday quickie!! 

 Today I want to share a quickie going over these awesome circle lenses that were provided to me by lensvillage.com. This pair is the Geo Xtra Diamond lenses in Violet. Violet is probably my favorite "odd" color to wear in circle lenses. I think the Purples can look really cool against my naturally light green eyes. As the name suggests these lenses feature a "faceted" diamond like pattern that builds from the outside of the lens inwards. These also feature a very dark outer ring. Which makes them perfect for the "dolly eyed" look. Because of the pattern, these lenses also give a very "bright-eyed, sparkling eyes" effect.
 The Geo Xtra Diamond lenses are on the larger side at 15mm in diameter. As I have mentioned in previous cirlce lens posts, I tend to find the larger circle lenses more comfortable. The larger the lenses, the more dramatic the effect. These have a great enlarging effect as well. These also come in grey, brown, green and blue.
For anyone wondering; my eye liner is Lime Crime's uniliner in Orchidaceous. On a side note The Geo Xtra Diamond lenses are available from lensvillage.com and retail for $20.00/ pair

Happy friday loves!

LTHP Quickies! Geo Xtra Forest Lenses in Brown from LensVillage.com

(**Press Sample**)
Good evening!! 

  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....
eye liner: Lime Crime Lunar Sea. Mascara: Benefit Bad Gal Lashes
 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. 
On Lid: Milani Brow and Eye highlighter in Matte Beige/ High Glow. 
  These lenses only come in "plano", meaning they have no "power"(prescription). The Geo Xtra Forest lenses come in variety of shades and retail for $20.00/pair on lensvillage.com. I really adore these. They are comfortable and look natural enough to wear them regularly. But unnatural enough to make them interesting and fun. Lens Village also has fairly low shipping, which is awesome!

Thanks for coming by!
