I hate fake or ‘Plastic’ people. By this I mean not only those that are being nice to me to get something. But the ‘plastic’ especially entails fake physical features like nails, eyelashes (we can all tell they are and make you look like you’ve got ‘spider eyes’ ) or their skin (any surgery done unless it was a serious medical reason). You should be happy with the skin you are in (born with) not how people think you should be. When it comes to eye color well I always loved blue eyes and was curious to what I would look like, besides when it also comes to those crazy contacts for costumes and such well… that IS still me being me I love Halloween so no matter what color or design I get, so long as others know its not my real eye color, and that I’m honest with those that don’t then I’m not being ‘plastic’ I see trying a different eye color as putting on make-up;I am enhancing my look. Finally I was able to get to see what I look like with blue eyes!
Spooky Eyes is based in the UK and specialize in beautiful natural colored and Halloween cosmetic contact lenses. They stock over 500 colors & designs for many different occasions (they have contacts for any holiday!). Once I checked the website I was surprised to see the reasonable low prices! So far the lowest I found was $15.95! (I’ve never seen colored/creepy contacts for a price that low!) for some of the ‘Natural Looking contacts.
These are a great way to experiment with changing your eye color, or to enhance your look. From natural green and blue, to sparkly and party colors, plus some amazing Halloween lenses to die for!
I was able to receive a complimentary pair to test and review. I had to pick 3 styles/designs but would only receive one. I guess this was in case they ran out of something. One choice I remember was a violet color, another was I think a red one for vampire play and the last was this Spin Blue one (pictured below)which I thought looked interesting.
They have a great variation of Vampire, Witch, Zombie and even werewolf, and that’s not just one or 2 options for each; but I’d say at least 20. The same goes for the black out & white out styles! They have ‘Crazy Contacts ‘ Color contacts, Halloween (with loads of options I previously mentioned & Natural lenses for just changing your eye color… even to purple well they say Violet!!! You’ll have to check out the site for yourself!
Now for my Lenses….
They showed up’blister’ packaged in solution (which for some reason I was not expecting). One of them was harder to open than the other, maybe I opened them at a different end. The right side in the picture with those 2 circles, I think is the side you are supposed to pull from, so that it’s easier. Once I opened the packets I put the contacts in a case with some Renu solution I purchased on July 22. My mother used to have prescription contacts back when I was in grade school. So I sort of have an idea on some of this. Looking at my Dark brown (almost black) eyes, I’m wondering if you will even see the lens design when I have them in.
I was trying to get at least one lens in the right eye and it was just not co-operating, so I started to try the left. I almost got in a time or two; but as my dad says ‘Almost only counts in horseshoes and grenades”. The contact would only partly go in my eye and then hang out on my lower lid. So I packed it in for the night and thought to try again the next day.
So I was trying to get the contacts in before we ran out on an errand, this way I could get used to them. Sadly I was not able to get even one on before going out. Before dinner I was able to get the left lens in, then waited a bit to get used to it being in my eye first before trying to get the other in my right eye.
I can tell you 2 things.
1. They are harder to put in than you think (even when you know someone you’ve seen put them in before)
2. You know it’s in (or at least close) when it feels like there’s an eyelash in your eye.
These are thin soft Color Contact lenses that once you are used to them you won’t realize you have them on, unless of course you pass by a mirror.! Just be sure to keep a small purse size bottle of moisture drops with you the first few times (say 5) you wear them.
When you are trying to put them in (besides always cleaning your hands well) be sure especially if you have nails like I do, to be careful not to tear them.
1.Put a bit of the Renu solution in the lens (I am pretty sure that’s how it clung to my eye instead of my finger)
2.When you first get the whole lens in your eye as I previously mentioned, it will feel like there’s a lash in your eye. Just..
Ok I look a bit witchy in this like ‘I’m going to get you and your little dog too’
3. Keep your eye closed for a bit and let it tear, say up to 30 seconds then open. Take a few moment to get used to that one being in your eye then
4. try getting the other in (and try not to get distracted by your new eye color in the process). Once you have got the 2nd one in repeat #3
If these are the sort of lenses used in movie & TV the actors have to wear and they are complaining about them, I need to swat them all! If not then I scream out to Hollywood… These are the ones to use!
So, what do you think of me with blue eyes?
One more great thing about the site/company they offer care kits at great prices, as well as all in one kits with contacts & care kit !
