Review - NEO COSMO Princess Eyes Purple Violet + FOTD

I fell in love with this particular model when I saw Rosebud143 (on YouTube) 's video and her oh-so-pretty pictures.
It is basically the same design as GEO tri-color Violet. This also has no obvious rings and design of three colors meshed together.
I honestly didn't think they are similar in design when I ordered this NEO Princess Eyes pair, so at first I was very disappointed thinking they are almost identical.
At least they look very much alike from the lens cases.
To my relief however, they look quite different on because this Princess Eyes Purple Violet is much lighter in color and gives much noticeable effects because of it.

It looks almost pale pink. (matches with the pink piggy case ^-^)
Outer ring is cool dark gray and inner part is light brown color.





wearing NEO COSMO Princess Eyes Purple Violet
no makeup, natural lighting
It looks almost baby blue.

with some eye makeup


*item details*
Brand - NEO
Diameter - 14.2 mm
Base Curve - 8.6
Water Content - 45%
Duration - 1 year disposable

*color/design* 8/10
The light color looks striking to eyes yet natural due to this tri-color design.
This lavender like color almost resembles bright tanzanite. You could even "attempt" to recreate "La Liz" look. (I emphasize on "attempt". It is not something can be recreated with color contacts.)
I still feel shy to wear this bright colored contacts cause people do stare sometimes. *shrugs*
If you want a dramatic color change on dark eyes, this would be a good option.

*enlargement* 7/10
This gives better enlargement compared to GEO because it is larger in diameter by 0.02 mm and the color is brighter. 

*comfort* 8.5/10
Very comfortable like other NEO contacts I have tried.
Frankly, this feels more comfortable than my current conventional contacts (CIBA night & day, 30 day disposable).

  5. Oh wow they look really cool!! I just ordered a violet pair and I've been wanting to try pink but I'm not sure how it'd look since my eyes are naturally green... I'd like to try though!

  6. gosh it looks so cute on you...I want to try some circle lens but they hurt my eyes... any suggestion?

  7. thank you, Katherine. :)
    i'd suggest you try lenses with higher water content with smaller diameter. all the NEO contacts i've tried feel more comfortable than GEO ones.
    hope you find good ones for you soon!

  8. i don't believe lenses with similar design as this would make a big change for lighter colored eyes, but it would look nice. green and purple go nicely together. :)
    i got a pink pair recently. will review on them as well!

  12. if you want to try NEO brand, koreabigeyes.com sells them cheapest. they still have the same promotion, i think? i've checked out other site like candylens.com and eyecandylens.com as well with no problem. different sites carry different brands and selections. some provide free shipping but price is highter, etc.
    hope this answers your question a little. :)

    this NEO princess is almost the same design as GEO. the colors and how they feel are the differences, i guess.
