GEO Nudy Quarter Brown: A Staple for Any Circle Lens Wardrobe

The circle lens industry has been incredibly active over the past 5 or 6 years. There are literally thousands of patterns, colors and designs that have made their debuts over this time. Some of them had their 15 minutes of fame, having their brief burst of popularity quickly extinguished by newer, more exciting designs. (Remember the Bescon Tutti or the Pop C. Dark lenses, anyone?) A handful of others, however, have withstood the test of time and remained consistent sellers from the start. One of these definitely the hugely popular GEO Nudy Quarter Series; this circle lens in Brown is one which I find myself defaulting to whenever I'm in a rush or just too overwhelmed with choice!

Color & Design: 


The GEO Nudy Quarter Brown consists of the famous speckled pattern in a shade of beige which has underlying yellow tones. On my dark Asian eyes, this light color shows up very well, though light-eyed wearers might get a more subdued effect. The Nudy Quarter Brown lens matches well with both light pastel eyeshadow during the day, and looks nice with darker smokey shadow for night. Thumbs up for versatility. The finely detailed dot pattern gives a pretty crystalline effect. I also like how the limbal ring is thin so it adds a subtle line of definition to the iris (I find that lenses without a dark rim make me look quite ghastly).  These lenses are by no means "like-my-own-eyes-but-better" kind of natural, so pairing it with basic eyeliner and mascara is a must.

As you can see, there is a considerable "halo" effect, referring to the white (sclera) portion of the eye that shows through the translucent parts of the lens. I don't really care for this, but there are people on either side of the fence.


Enlargement: 

I feel 14.0-14.2mm is the perfect diameter for circle lenses (at least for small to medium sized Asian eyes), but I am giving 4 stars because most people like 14.5mm+.  People with already big eyes may find the enlargement of this lens to be insufficient.  Anyway, to compare with other lenses in the same "class," the GEO Nudy Quarter is bigger than the GEO Tri-Color World and looks bigger than the GEO Angel, though all these are labelled 14.2mm.

Comfort: 

GEO Magic Color contacts are just ok in comfort. Rohto Lycee eye drops were needed after 3 hours of wear and consistently throughout the day. (For reference, my 5/5 comfort rating for circle goes to NEO Vision monthly lenses and Bausch & Lomb LACELLE)

All in all, the GEO Nudy Quarter Brown circle contacts are a staple. They're like a pair of shoes which can take you from day to night. I hope that this didn't bore you guys too much as I am sure there are more than tonnes of other reviews on the GEO Nudy Quarter series; but my goal was just to share one of the cosmetic lenses that has attained HG status in my makeup drawer!

GEO Nudy Quarter Series can be purchased here on EyeCandy's website for $24.39 plus free worldwide shipping.
