Circle lens review: GEO Mimi XKP-304 (AngelColor Starmish)

I received some new lenses from that I purchased about a month ago, so I thought I would review one of the pairs!

Today I'll be reviewing GEO Mimi XKP-304, otherwise known as AngelColor Starmish Brown. These are produced by Popteen model Mai Hirose and have been getting a lot of praise in Japan!

In the case it looks sort of like a more orange-toned version of Bambi Chocolate.

With one contact in eye. You can see the enlargement isn't too big or too small. I think it's definitely a perfect size for me!

- Very unique color, brown base with orange tones mixed into it!
- Wearable design, like a more toned down version of the Bambi series.
- The most comfortable lenses I've ever worn from GEO.
- Versatile style-wise, so girls wearing different styles of fashion can incorporate them into their look.

- Not enough color variety? Honestly that's the only thing I can really think of.

Definitely one of my new favorite lenses, and my favorite GEO lens I've ever tried! I've worn GEO lenses in the past due to the design of their lenses and hated the comfort of them, especially the Princess Mimi/Bambi series. Previously wearing those lenses I would have to apply eye drops quite often since they dried out easily, but I have worn these lenses for 12 hours and they still felt comfortable on. My vision isn't blurred in these despite being a different base curve than my prescription, which is definitely important as well!

I would highly recommend these lenses to anyone! If you're tired of seeing everyone wearing Bambi lenses, these are a great alternative that are much more comfortable to wear.

Where to buy?


  1. These contacts are really pretty!It looks really good with your makeup too :)

  2. Ever since I've seen these, I've been wanting them more and more!

    1. I knew the moment I saw these when they first came out in Japan I *HAD* to have them, and I'm so happy with my purchase! Definitely check them out if you're interested in them :)

  3. They look so nice on you. Love ur makeup :)

  4. I'm getting these lens soon so ive been searching around for the reviews on them
    they are a tad bit orange but i think they look fantastic on you, oh my god!

    1. Thank you! I get so many compliments when I wear these compared to my other lenses :) I love these more than the Bambi lenses since they're more wearable everyday.
