Hishop GEO CK-105 Magic Circle Contact Lens Review

5.11.13





When I first heard of contact lenses that could make your eyes look bigger, the first thought that popped into my mind was that the doll look was coming back into fashion.



I am from a mixed cultural background, so you could say that I am blessed with somewhat of a good combination of lash thickness and length along with oval shaped eyes.

To be honest, I have never really followed the trend of big-doll fashioned eyes but I do have a handful of friends that have been using similar big eyed contacts to achieve this particular look, so you could say that in a way, it has peaked my curiosity.

HiShop; Making Beauty Accessible

Now before I start, I would like to place a warm thank you to Hishop Malaysia for giving me the opportunity to review these contact lenses.

As I was heading out for a function, I decided to give the contact lens a try for a full on day trial wear and post up the results from unpackaging, application and duration.


Inside the Box

To start off, the lens came packaged in Hishop's signature pink box.

Inside, I received 1 pair of GEO CK-105 Contact Lens, 1x contact lens casing, 3 Vouchers and 1 cute little fact-sheet on nails with compliments from Hishop.


Products Received

As you can see from above, the contact lenses were packed very well to ensure that no breakage or leakage will come to them.


Sealed with two bubble wrap sheets

I was actually pleasantly surprised to see that the two bottles were sealed in quite nicely with not only one but two bubble wrap sheets. So thumbs up for the extra protection!


After the unveiling

How the contact lens look like in the bottle

The GEO CK-105 bottle had an authenticity seal at the side along with the lens type and power.
You can scratch off the little grey label with a coin and the serial number will appear.


Authenticity Check

Now once you see the serial number, head on over to http://www.fw1860.com/en/index.aspx and key in the code to check on the authenticity.

Once you hit 'Enter' on the code, you will see a little message at the bottom, guaranteeing you the product's authenticity. Pretty cool huh?

Now for the next step, before we open the bottle, we would have to prepare the packaging first. 

This is to avoid any hassle before unpacking. 
First, take off the right and left cover on the casing so that you can immediately put the contact lens in after opening it.


Take off the cover

Now let's move on to the bottle. You will see this silver aluminum tag wrapped all around the bottle top. Follow the arrow and slowly remove it. 

If you have weak nails, I suggest using a cloth or a towel as a grip support, as this is actually quite difficult to open and might damage your nails.

On a separate note, this aluminium tag is quite sharp, so be very careful while you handle it.


Removing the Aluminium Tag

Once open, empty the solution and contact lens into the casing. As for me, this caused a little bit of an over spill, but nevertheless the contact lens was protected quite well.


The Contact Lens after Removal from the Bottle

As I took the contact lens out from the casing, I realized that the lens wasn't as soft as my other colored lenses. It didn't curl or stick to my finger as much as the others did either.

Maybe this is why the GEO CK-105 Contact Lens durability is for a 12 month long duration instead of the standard 3 months.

As mentioned above, the base curve of this contact lens is 8.6mm and the diameter falls at 14.2mm.

As can be seen on the picture below, the thickness is quite apparent on the side angle as well.

Now before the application, I had already applied my false lashes to the top and bottom eye lid as I wanted to go for the whole doll look to match with the big eyed contact lens.


Without the Contact Lens

I have pretty dark irises so it's a little bit difficult to tell if there are any differences in color unless I put on colored contacts.

Nevertheless, I wanted a more defined look, so hopefully the GEO CK-105 will do the trick for me.


With the GEO CK-105 Magic Circle Contact Len.


As you can see, after the applying the GEO CK-105 Contact Lens, my eyes are now more bigger and more defined. Not much can be said on differences of color but the definition is definitely there.

 I really thought that my eyes might look a little bit on the alien side but after the application I found it to be quite natural looking.

The big plus point here is that for the low price of RM50now RM45 at HiShop, this contact lens is reusable for up to 12 months if kept well.

Geo & Barbie Contact Lens is also currently running a 10% discount for the month of November!

Overall, I really enjoyed the look of the GEO CK-105. I used it all throughout the function and people actually thought I didn't have contacts on until I pointed it out.

There was also no dryness to the eyes and I didn't feel any pinch when I was wearing it out as it was quite a comfortable fit to my eyes.

Taking them out was also quite easy due to the thickness of the lens so overall I will give this lens a huge thumbs up on my end :)

Xx!
