Colorize Your Eyes!

“Almost nothing need be said when you have eyes.”
Tarjei Vesaas


I am a sucker for pretty eyes. My entire makeup routine revolves around enhancing my eyes – which are green; and when I meet someone, the very first thing I notice about them is…their eyes! The length of the lashes, the size, and, above all else, the color. Megan Fox has a brilliant blue, Elizabeth Taylor had an unusual violet, Kristen Stewart has gorgeous green, and Nicole Richie has the most stunning honey color on the planet. We often go out of our way to match our clothing to our eyes to make them truly pop. But getlenses.co.uk gives us the opportunity to do the opposite – match our eyes to our clothing!

GetLenses is a mail-order contact company that stocks contacts of a number of brands – Air Optix, Acuvue, and Focus Dailies, to name a few; as well as contact lens accessories like solution, carrying cases, and, one of my favorites, contact-friendly cosmetics. The clincher is that the prices at GetLenses are far lower than standard retail; so if you wear contacts daily, like I do, it makes them far less inexpensive.

The area that caught my eye is for Coloured Contact Lenses. I love the idea of having the ability to change your eye color from day to day – even if it’s just subtly. I find that it’s a versatile, painless way to change your appearance without extreme measures. GetLenses features super-stylish colored contacts in blue, green, violet, hazel, gray, brown, violet, and opaque.


What I love about the colored contact lenses is the fact that you can choose from a number of different colors from each category, based upon how intense you want the color; so if you choose hazel, you can select from pure hazel, hazel, or honey. And if you go for green, you can select from turquoise, gemstone green, aqua, green, or sea green. I personally love the look of the honey, and the amethyst.

Would you wear colored contact lenses? Which color catches your eye?

I definitely would! I think I'd stay within my natural hue - a hazel.

Lovely.
There are so many available contact lens these days that are not that expensive so no one has an excuse not to beautify their eyes.

The Sapphire is pretty! (Too bad I have a weird eye phobia and will never purposely stick anything in my eyes!)

I like brown and gray colors of lenses. They're so cool! *-*

When I was in sixth grade, I desperately wanted colored contacts. I begged my parents for them ALL THE TIME. Finally, in seventh grade my parents bought me green ones. And to my dismay, my dark brown eyes were simply too dark for the contacts. My eyes looked like a muddy greenish brown. Not unsimilar to something you'd see in a newborn's diaper. I was devestated. :S

Anyway, I wonder if technology has changed much since 1997 lol. Perhaps I should give colored lenses another try...? :)

Contact lens is the best way of changing the look of a person, that blue is very attractive. All the colours are amazing, especially the honey and true saphire.
