I have something special for you today. I got the chance to review contact lenses from You Know It.
I've always wanted to try colored contact lenses, but I was to afraid of scratching my eyes out. =) Yeah, I have a weird phobia when it comes to my eyes. This is the main reason why I was so overwhelmed when I managed to put in my very first contact lense...
Here's what I got: 2 glass vials with contact lense in each and instructions in a nice (and very colorful) little box. These lenses are called Witches Eye by Funky Eyes.
Both my BF and my sister wear corrective contact lenses occasionally so I asked them for tips how to insert these babies. Well, it's not hard and there's also a 'How to' section on the You Know It website. A couple of minutes and voila... I managed to go from natural to Witches Eye! =) Of course, I had to add some make up (this could be useful for new users: you do your make up after you put your lenses in). ;D
I certainly wouldn't suggest these lenses for everyday wear, but they'd be perfect for Halloween or photo-shootings. I've never worn lenses before, so I can't compare them to other lenses, but I have to say these are quite comfortable. My eyes didn't get teary, it didn't hurt or burn. I really like the outcome, although it's a bit scary. But that's perfect for Halloween, no? =)
EDIT: I forgot about the polish. *blushes* I'm wearing Sally Hansen Fairy Teal topped with Essence Glisten Up.
I did a look with one lense only, because the other was torn (see the photo below). I contacted You Know It and they said it happens that some lenses get through the quality control, but don't worry if this happens to you - just take a photo of the sealed glass vial with the torn lense and you'll get a new one free of charge. I don't think it will happen anyway. I must have been very ''lucky'' to get a torn one. =)
So, if I could do it, you can do it too. If you're like me and want to try contact lenses but are afraid - don't be. It's really nothing scary (although you have to touch your eyes). You just make sure that you carefully read and follow the instructions.
Also: if you're a begginer like me and want to give it a go, you'll need three things - contact lenses, contact lens solution and contact lens storage case. That's it.
Hope this was at least half as fun for you as it was for me. And I have another lenses to show you...
