Kotsuki Shop Sponsored Review: Geo Nudy Green on Green Eyes

Hey everyone!

The other day, I received a package from my sponsor*, Kotsuki Shop. I was super excited, because this is my first sponsor and I wanted to see what Miya had chosen for me!

I was super excited so I ripped open the package, and this was what was in there! Geo Magic Color CH-623 aka Geo Nudy in Green and an animal lens case. I got a yellow bear. It's really cute! I ordered them in Plano although I normally order in prescription, only because I need to get my prescription renewed.

They arrived quickly, just 10 days after I got my shipping notice. I wasn't expecting them for another week at least!

My first impression of the lenses were that I really loved the light minty green color of the lenses! I was excited to try them out, so I opened the vials and put them in their case, and let them soak for 18ish hours (once I got them/overnight/part of the next day).

Here's my review of them! I had planned on (and still plan on) doing a video review, but I've been floored with a cold, so it's probably best that I'm off-camera for now. I'm still going to do one once I get better, though!

I decided to make a graphic for my review after seeing the one that Miyabi made, and the ones that Lorina makes, so here it is! You can click to make it larger, or here are the original, higher quality pictures of the ones that I used on the graphic (which you can also click to make larger:

I would definitely recommend these lenses to anyone. They're incredibly comfortable, have a simple but iconic pattern, and the colors are lovely. Plus, the halo effect, which is just as glorious in real life as it is in photos. The only downside is that the color of the lenses is cooler than the warm green of my natural eye, so they look pretty obvious up close. Other than that, I have nothing but praises to sing about these lenses.

Now, here's my store review of Kotsuki Shop:

Kotsuki Shop is a fairly new circle lens store, but don't let that dissuade you from buying from them. They carry 400+ styles of authentic Korean circle lenses, and they range in price from $19 - $25 USD, which is very affordable. They carry all the popular brands like GEO, EOS, Vassen, G&G/Dueba, Dollyeye, etc. All the lenses are available in Plano and prescription up to -10.00 (which is good for blindies like me!).

The customer service is awesome. Miya is super friendly and polite, and she responds promptly to each email. I was sent a shipping notice once my package had shipped, and a tracking number with which to track it.

The shipping was very quick. I received my shipping notice on February 21st, and I received my parcel on March 4th. Shipping took 11 days total, that's counting the weekends. I'd say that's pretty damn fast for a parcel traveling from Malaysia to California on standard shipping!

Overall, I'm very happy with the service, and I'm not just saying that because I'm sponsored by Kotsuki. I definitely recommend purchasing from them. The lenses are affordable, the owner is so kind, the selection is great, and the shipping is fast! What more could you want from a shop!?

If you do order from Kotsuki Shop, don't forget to use my promo code "opheliadanger" at checkout for 15% off your purchase! Click the banner below, or the banner on my sidebar to the right ---->

Also, don't forget to let me know if you do order, and how your experience was! I love hearing about people's shopping experiences!

That's it for now, and probably for the next week while my immune system is on overdrive trying to cure my body of this awful cold. If I do post anything, it'll probably be more Ageha inspo, just an FYI.

I'll talk to you later, dolls
