Colored Contacts Review: Spooky Eyes
|CAUTION: EMBARRASSING AMOUNT OF SELFIES AHEAD|
|Contacts: c/o Spooky Eyes|
Today I'm posting a review I never thought I'd do, but when the opportunity came along, I figured why not?
Spooky Eyes sent me a pair of colored contacts to review, their Spiral Blue Contact Lenses to be precise.
Now, before I begin the selfie galore show, I must share with you a story from my youth.
"Mom, why are my eyes dirt brown?" I pouted.
"Hey, what's wrong with brown eyes!?" she exclaimed, narrowing her dark brown ones at me.
"They're not as pretty as daddy's..." I sighed longingly, gazing at a photo of my parents. Dad's cheery blue eyes peered back at me.
"Listen to me, Linda. Brown eyes are just as beautiful as blue ones. Don't listen to what others may say."
Since then, I've made peace with my dirt brown eyes, and have even come to view them as beautiful. However, the lingering wish of wanting different colored eyes hasn't completely left me. With these spiraling blue contacts, I'm allowed to mix both my natural eye color with the blue shade I used to wish it was!
It looks as if I've photoshopped my eyeball or something if you do a side by side comparison.
I walked into work, and my co-worker peered more closely at me.
"Are you stoned? You're stoned, aren't you?"
"No, she's wearing contacts!" another corrected her.
Haha, so yes, these contacts definitely enlarge your eyes. Creepily so, in my opinion. It's really creepy when you only have one in, so you can compare the size difference!
Buuuuuut when you have both in, the size difference balances out, and while you still look semi-alienish, it's an oddly, freaky, appealing sort of look. I can't decide if I look more alien or anime-like. What do you think?
I kept these contacts in my eyes for a solid 9 hours without discomfort, which is pretty remarkable! I ended up forgetting I even had them in, and only remembered when I passed a reflective surface and about crapped my pants when my eyes met...my eyes...
Haha, anyway, what do you guys think? Alien or anime?
Creepy or alluring?
Would you wear colored contacts? What color would you choose?
