You may have seen me testing out some coloured circle lens contacts the last few months on Instagram (@LatherRinseRpt), and if you're a coworker, may have even partaken in the delightful guessing game Does Michaela Have Crazy Eyes Again Today.
Here's my regular, boring old eyes in their standard blue.
Here's a close-up of my right eye, which is discoloured due to partical heterochromia iridis. This means I have a patch of colour in my right eye that is different to the eye's dominant colour and
can see directly into your soul doesn't affect me in any way aside from physical appearance.
Welp, shit got weird real quick there. Huh. Let's not even speak of some of the gifs I found. So many....tentacles.
By the way, while I was looking through some of these gifs, Gangham Style started playing from one of my tabs, and I cannot work out from which of the 90 I have open the damn song is coming from. I thought he was saying open condom style for the longest time. It seemed appropriate.
Anyway, I was sent five different contacts, and am going to show you my three favourites from the online store Glow and Glamour.
EOS Diamond Green ($22.90) is a max size lens and definitely makes an impact. I do really like the green colour, and the multifaceted shading on this one is so pretty. The large lens would work far better on someone with a dark iris, as it does look strange having my blue bits peep through.
EOS Rosy Blue ($22.90) is the one that scares The Boyfriend. He hates them, but I like them for the intensity and how glassy they look.
3 Tone Goldish Violet ($22.90) was my favourite out of all the ones I was sent. It's smaller, and this gorgeous violet colour which does an almost ombre effect blending into my iris colour. The Boyfriend actually hasn't noticed when I'm wearing these, because it is more of a subtle look.
All of the contact lens I received from Glow and Glamour were really nice quality, true to my prescription and didn't irritate or dry out my eyes. Most importantly, the colour is on the outside of the lens and hasn't faded or come off since I've started using them.
Glow and Glamour have a great deal for Halloween on right now, offering 50% off all contacts. Use the code "HALLOWEEN" at check-out before Nov 15th to score this. I have my eye on these pink ones next, or maybe this tiger stripe-esque pair so I can dress up as kawaii for Halloween!
