[Pinky Paradise] Princess Pinky Day Gemini Green Lens Review

Does colored circle lenses and contact lenses look too extreme for you and you're looking for that pretty colored lenses that looks natural and not eerily fake? Well, look no more since Pinky Paradise is now carrying the Princess Pinky Day Gemini Series that will look perfectly natural on your eyes. 



Princess Pinky Gemini has the Day and Night Series.  

The Day Gemini line is bright and subtle at the same time and it brings out a more natural look while the Night Gemini line offers a more vivid, wild, fierce gaze with it's intensity.


Diameter: 14.5mm
Water Content: 42%
Base Curve: 8.8mm
Life Span: 30 days (monthly)
Prescription / -0.00 ~ -10.00

Most circle lenses have 38% water content but the Princess Pinky Gemini lenses have 42%, which means it's more comfortable for the eyes since it has more moisture and is suitable for longer periods of wear than other lenses. Although I still do recommend to only use lenses for a maximum of 8-12 hours since you should let your eyes breathe. This is by no means an extended wear contact lens so don't sleep with it on. Always take off your contact lens before you sleep. If you're going to take a nap, keep the nap as short as possible and if it's longer than 15 minutes, you might as well take off your contact lens. This goes with any contact lens since there can be a lot of complications that comes with excessive wear of contact lens (Circle Lens FAQs). 


Back to the Day Gemini lenses, the one I am reviewing is the Day Green lenses which surprisingly came in a blister pack instead of a vial. 

The lenses are very light in color. It is like a tinted clear lens with dotting around the pupil area and all over the iris area. This speckled design helps give a more natural look. One thing to note about the Day Gemini lenses is the absence of the limbal ring or outer circle design most commonly seen in circle lenses. The limbal ring gives the dolly or big eye look. Because these lenses lack the limbal ring, despite the diameter being 14.5mm, these lenses appear more like your regular, colored contact lens. With it's absence, you lose the wide eyed look and your eyes appear more natural looking especially since the color is light and seems to blend seamlessly with your natural eye color.




This is a closer photo of the lenses worn on my eye. Since the pupil area is clear on the actual lens, you can actually see my natural eye color which is brown. This makes my eyes appear hazel and the dotted design makes it appear as though they are natural eye freckles.

I'm sure that the Day Gemini Green would appear slightly different if you have darker or lighter colored natural eyes than me but amongst the other "natural" looking circle lenses advertised in the market, this is the closest one to being natural. 

I usually don't like regular colored contact lens and prefer circle lenses because they look oddly weird on me (bright, unnatural colored eyes for an Asian) but circle lenses have a way of making colored lenses make less unnatural because of the dolly eyed look. The Day Gemini series steps the game up since it offers colored lenses that looks natural despite it not giving the big eye look.

Comfort is key as well and I find these lenses to be really comfortable to wear for a longer amount of time than other lenses. I would also like to note that this feels thicker on the eyes when I first put it on but I quickly forgot about that a minute later. Most circle lens are thinner and regular contact lenses are thicker, the Princess Pinky is right in between but it is very comfortable to wear. 


Verdict
Comfort: ♥♥♥/5
Design:♥♥♥/5
Enlargement:♥♥/5
