What’s up guys?! Alright, as you can tell from the title, this post is going to be about cosmetic lenses. I got these samples from *Dream Eyes by SpookyEyes – an online contact lenses store who claims to be FDA approved and provides comfortable cosmetic lenses that are perfect for transforming your look. The particular pair that I’m wearing is called Violet Sparkle which you can get here.

Okay, let’s continue. I have been to an ophthalmologist before to get some colored contacts (they were grey and they were beautiful) when it became a thing at my workplace. A few girls were sporting them and they just looked really cool (specially the one wearing purple contacts). Long story short, I was curious to see what I would look like with them on. That was a few years back and I had forgotten how much I enjoyed wearing them.
The ones that I got from the clinic were definitely different than these Dream Eyes sample that I’m wearing right now. Makes sense seeing as Dream Eyes contact lenses are more appropriate for costume or editorial looks.
Upon receiving the lenses, I went to the store to get some items to properly store my new lenses. I got a simple case and a multipurpose solution at Walmart – both extremely cheap.
Ease: I had some experience with contacts in the past, so I didn’t think these were going to be a problem. Of course, as it was been a while, I did have a little trouble getting them in at first, but once I got the hang of it, everything was good. Taking them off was not a problem at all.
Comfort: These larger than usual lenses will definitely need some time getting used to. I wore them for a day and I wouldn’t say that they were as comfortable as regular contact lenses. After being so conscious of having something in my eyes for awhile, I started to forget they were there once the feeling got familiar.
Final thoughts: I would wear them when shooting an editorial or dramatic look to add more effect on a makeup that I’m wearing. Perhaps come Halloween, and it’s appropriate for a costume that I went with for the day. I know cosmetic lenses are pretty popular but I do not recommend them for everyday use without proper consultation with an eye doctor. Just always remember to use them with caution and always carefully read the manufacturer’s instructions on handling them.
