Hi guys! I'm back with another circle lenses review! This time, CirclelensesUSA sent over a pair for me to review. Because I am from Canada, the owner had a limited list of lenses for me to choose from. I chose Geo Xtra Brown 3 Tone Circle Lens WTB74. Even though the name said "brown", it looked gray online and I was looking for a natural gray, so I chose it. ^_^
Because the order shipped from Canada, it took only a few days. It didn't come with a lense case but that was alright. I'm not sure if they send it normally but I didn't get one so if you are ordering from them, maybe ask them whether they send one?
Very beautiful design, reminds me of a daisy.
To be honest, they were fairly uncomfortable. Not sure if my eyes were dry or what but I really felt them in my eyes and they itched throughout. However, I only tried them once so I wouldn't count them out in comfort.
I LOOOVE the colour. They look like a warm silver with a hint of green; very beautiful on dark eyes. They are very vibrant in real life and they give a "shiny" look to your eyes and just make you look amazing!

I adore the design! It is very natural but gives a beautiful pattern.
Usually "natural" 3 tone lenses don't enlarge very much but these were awesome! Of course they are not as large as Grang Grang lenses but these definitely enlarge more than the Puffy 3 Tones.
I highly recommend this pair! I feel like it is my new favourite!
Now a quick review of the store.
It is a BEAUTIFULLY designed website. It is modern and fun. The layout is great with good functionality. Lenses are categorized with the usual brand, colour, diameter and effects. However, I personally have not used their checkout system so I cannot review that part.
My order came in about a week. However this might be a little different if you ordered from elsewhere. I do believe they ship from the US/Canada so it is a major plus for those who live in North America so you don't have to deal with the hassle of 30 days shipping from Asia. For a North American store, the price is SUPERB. Honestly, other stores from North America tend to double or triple their prices but CircleLensesUSA sell their lenses at competitive prices. I feel like you should definitely give them a try if you live in North America and need your lenses fast.
CircleLensesUSA is a very new company and tend to gear their products towards the natural look. They do stock Princess Mimi lenses which are more dolly, but they don't seem to have much for cosplayers. That all said, I have seen many other sites that literally have super natural lenses (a popular trend in Korea) that did not fit my taste so I wouldn't say CircleLensesUSA is completely lacking.
Customer Service: 5/5
Because CircleLensesUSA are run by people in North America (I am not being racist or anything), they are fluent in English and will be in similar time zones as other North Americans. Therefore their customer service will be more helpful for you. They are very kind and patient so don't hesitate to contact them.
I seriously think you guys should give CircleLensesUSA a chance. Based in North America, it is super useful to get your rush order before cons!
(I was not paid to review CircleLensesUSA. I did received a free pair of lenses from them but my opinions in this post are my own.)
