I’m a huge fan of coloured lenses. You’ll have seen them on the blog before when we posted about our Halloween night out here. I’d spent a while deciding where to get these from and ended up ordering from Amazon. Unfortunately for me I ended up with a eye infection after using them. I’m not sure if it was something I did but I have worn contacts previously and had no trouble.
I’ve had contacts before when I was at uni and loved them. I’ve got naturally blue eyes so usually pick green lenses for if I fancy a change.
Old photo of me. I love these but they weren’t too natural looking. Great for a statement.
On twitter recently we were followed by Beautifeye as I love lenses I instantly checked out there website for what shades of green they offered. I was lucky and they offered to send me a pair to try if I fancied. I picked these green ones as they looked natural and I thought they’d be better for everyday wear. They retail for £14.99 and last 90 days. I love that. As I don’t wear them everyday I find if I get ones that last 30 days I don’t get to wear them enough to make it worth while. I’m currently eyeing up the Dazzle Fusion Green Lenses (found here) for nights out to really make my eyes stand out.
When you order the lenses also come with a lens case and lens solution meaning you have everything you need to keep your lenses clean and in good condition.
The lenses arrive sealed in sterile solution and full instructions. I removed mine from the packet and placed them in the lens carries in solution for a few minutes before putting them in. Here you can see the colour. I like ones that contain multiple shades as they look really natural.
I used to really struggle putting lenses in and I’m still not great all the time and it really is something you get better with so if you struggle at first. Persevere they are worth it.
I pop them on the tip of my finger then use my other hand to hold my eye open. I make sure I’ve properly washed my hands and I’m sat comfy to apply then.

With the lenses in. I love how they make my eyes look a bit bigger and they are subtle.
With both lenses in. These are really comfy to wear and I’ve worn them for work and for nights out.
I love that they aren’t obvious so I can wear them for everyday for a subtle look.
I’ve recently dyed my hair darker and they look even better. I’d forgotten how much I like coloured lenses. Thanks to Beautifeye for sending me these out. I love them and will be ordering more. I’m tempted to order some violet ones for a change!
Have you wore coloured lenses before? What colour would you change your eyes to if you could?
