Lens review: GEO Xtra Morning Glory Blue

Hello peeps!

Today is circle lens review day and I will be showing you a pair called GEO Xtra Morning Glory Blue (WFL-A32) and it's a really nice blue pair with a beautiful print and color!

Let's roll out the review!

Base curve: 8.7 mm
Diameter: 15 mm
Water content: 42%
Life span: 1 year (I recommend 6 months)

Okay, so these lenses have a gorgeous flower print with a thick black limbal ring to top it off. The color is a medium light blue and it's a very wonderful blue shade; it shows up well on my light eyes and I am pretty sure these would look look lovely on dark eyes too!

The enlargement effect is noticeable but it's not overwhelming, even though the vials say that the diameter is 15 mm. I can see these being used for many different looks and, despite their size, they don't look too weird without eye makeup.

One lens in.
The design is lovely and it's the main reason I bought these lenses. The blue color also fits really well with my natural eye color (light blue-gray) and it blends nicely in the center, without leaving an obvious "line" where the lens' color starts and my own eye color ends.

Oh and yeah, of course because it's GEO lenses be sure to check for the authenticity stickers! All GEO lenses should come with stickers that have a code you can use to check them up online, to prove that they are genuine.

Lens photos incoming!
All photos taken by me during a June afternoon with a clear sky.
There's no color filters or such on the close-up photos and that's so that the colors would be as true to real life as possible.

The comfort is the only disappointing thing about these. I got them into my eyes super easily and they were comfy right from the start but after like 1 hour they started to feel dry already. Please keep in mind though that I have dry/sensitive eyes and yeah, had I not opened these lenses before August they would have expired in their vials – which also might explain the poor comfort. A little bit before 2 hours ticked in I went to take the lenses off since they felt really dry; once they were out my eyes felt all dry and I had to go several times afterwards to splash my face with cold water to get rid of the discomfort. 
I do hope that I just happened to get a Monday example and that the Morning Glory otherwise is comfortable because I really adore the design and I'd like to try these in more colors in the future...

Short summary:

Color: 8/10
Beautiful true blue shade that shows up well.
Design: 9/10
Gorgeous flower design with black details!
Opacity: 8/10
Nicely opaque.
Enlargement: 7/10
Pretty big yeah.
Comfort: 4/10
Comfy but dry out really fast for me, in around 2 hours. My eyes feel really dry afterwards.
Naturalness: 3/10
The thick limbal ring, size and unnaturally bright blue color won't really fool anyone.

Thanks for reading! I hope you found this review helpful. ^^

Oh my goodness those lenses are gorgeous!! I might actually consider buying those as my next blue circle lenses!

I don't have dry eyes (I think?) but they're really sensitive so I'm not sure if I should try these ones next or not though.. :|

Off topic: if you're still interested in following my life and cosplay projects I hopefully soon get to start working on, notice my blog address has changed (again). :3

As far as I've seen other reviews of the same lens series people have found these lenses comfortable so yeah, you should be fine if you want to get these. :) I'm suspecting I was just unlucky and I also think the close expiry date (had I left them unopened) played a part too.

Of course! I'll gladly follow you!
