BIG BLUE EYES! Coloured Contact Lenses Review

Hi everyone.
Today I am reviewing something totally different than my usual beauty products.
I was contacted by www.eyesbright.com asking me if I would like to review some coloured contact lenses from their store. I always wanted to try them , so I just had to say yes. My vision is perfectly fine, so I have never tried lenses before. This was my first pair. Read on for more details....
 

I was a little bit scared to put the lenses into my eyes and at the beginning it was just ridiculously difficult. I was just blinking non stop and couldn't put them in. After an hour of trying I gave up and asked for advice. The lenses come with instructions, but it is hard to put something into your eye if you haven't done it before. Anyway...  after hours of trying I finally managed to put the lenses in and they looked huuuuge! The colour is beautiful and makes my eyes stand out, but I wouldn't wear them in public. I would go for smaller ones if I wanted to actually use them daily. I wanted to try big blue ones just to see the effect. I always freak out when something gets into my eyes, so I was a bit uncomfortable with the lenses. It wasn't a horrible feeling, but I could feel them in my eyes.
I think it is because of the size. I must admit, they are far too big.
Taking them out was easy peasy :) It took ma a second! (surprisingly)

Overall I am happy with the outcome. It looks really cool. I felt and looked like a manga character :)
If you always wanted to try colored lenses, go for it, it is fun and looks great on photos. I love photography so it was a great experience for me and my chance to take some interesting pictures. 
I can't wait to try green ones and big brown ones too :)
Have you ever tried coloured contact lenses? What did you think?

  2. They look great! Maybe go for a 14.2mm or 14.5mm next time, they'll look a lot more natural and probably be a bit more comfortable for you!

  8. I'm not a fan personally, just because they don't look at all natural so unless for fancy dress they're quite freaky. I like that you've used a blue eyeliner to compliment them in these photos though and great choice of lip colour!

  10. You look just stunning with these in, your eyes look amazing! Your photos are always so beautiful. Shame you could feel them in your eyes, I know I wouldn't like that either, and I'm also a bit funny about putting things in mine.

  11. Those lenses look amazing on you! I've always wanted to try out circle lenses but it's hard to find them on prescription since I wear regular contact lenses for my eyesight daily.

  12. That hilarious because my eyes look that huge naturally. I love playing around with lenses! I used green ones once and my sister got pink ones (she ended up looking like a vampire!) The lenses and eyeliner match nicely together :D

  16. The lenses are really bright and looks very nice on you. Your eyes are so big that even 15mm doesn't look too stark/ unnatural. I love your makeup look in the photos.

  22. Wow, your eyes look huge! You definitely remind me of a manga character :) The blue eyeliner is so pretty with the blue of the lenses. I find contact lenses really hard to put on as well, it always takes me at least 5 minutes per eye of constant trying :p

  23. wow thats awesome! you look fab!

  24. They look really nice on you especially coupled with the fab eye makeup :) These (and even bigger ones) are really popular here in Asia!
    I must say though that anyone who intend to purchase colored contact lenses should look into the brand/store they're getting it from because there have been quite a number of cases of infection etc which are not pretty at all :x

  25. I must say you are very pretty and those lenses makes your eyes glowing and gives you a charming look. Your eyes are very beautiful and I think all the colors will suits you whatever you may wear. This one is also looking great.
