Let’s Get Intense.. Circle Lenses Review

Hey loves, I know I have been MIA. BUT, I had a good reason. A few weeks ago I wanted to get circle lenses SO BADLY! I mean don’t we all want bigger eyes? If you don’t know circle lenses are..they can come in prescription and nonprescription.  They are colored lenses that are usually bigger in diameter than most contacts. The ones I am wearing are 15mm in diameter contacts, where as my usual size is about 14 mm. There are a lot of benefits to circle lenses, such as they can make your eyes appear larger, there are more styles and colors to choose from, and there is no prescription needed to order them! SO I have been wearing them for 2 weeks now and really giving them a go, to serve you up my own most honest opinion and review of them! 😀

When you visit you optometrist, if you wear contacts, can recommend some colored contacts in the same brand that you already wear that are CRAZY EXPENSIVE. Yes, they have a range of colors that are all somewhat natural looking, and the most exciting color is light purple, and 3 pair will charge $175. Which is ridiculous. Being the cheepo I am I decided I was not going to pay that for colored contacts…I mean aren’t they just pieces of plastic you use and discard?! So naturally I googled. I found http://www.thedollyeye.com, and I read multiple reviews myself to see what their rep was. They are amazing contacts, that I have really grown to be in love with! Their site apart from contacts, has other beauty products as well, and is definitely worth checking out. Under the circle lenses tab, is where the fun begins!

They have so many colors, styles, themed, and sizes, and prescription/non-perscription lenses to choose from! The biggest challenge is figuring out from all the kinds which ones you want to buy, they are all wicked cool! I wanted like 20 pairs, for real :p On their site they also have links to pictures taken by real people wearing them so you can see better what they will look like in person, which is great.  AND they are only around  $25 per pair which is way better than the actual recommended ones from your doctor. In most cases always go to your doctor first, but in this case, I have been wearing contacts for 7 plus years now, and have tried many different contacts and brands, and as long as you buy them from a reliable source, know your script number, and use them correctly you are golden!

As you can see, this is what you get when you order your contacts! Two vials containing your contacts in solution, I bought the Twilight Green ones, because I already have green eyes and wanted a more fun intense green look! Mine are in a -3.75 prescription, as you can see on the lid, and they even give you a little carrying lens case to keep them in. So to be honest, you have to get used to them…at first if you already where contacts you know the drill, don’t sleep in contacts, keep them clean in refreshed daily solution, ect. Circle lenses however, since they are much larger, deprive your eyes of more oxygen. With this being said, NEVER sleep in these contacts. Regular contacts you can get away with this once in a while, but which such a large contact lens, this can really harm and damage your eyes while you sleep. It is pretty much eye murder by means of suffocation lol

When you first get them, take them remove them from the vile, by unscrewing the sharp (be careful) metal caping mechanism, and poor them into the lens carrying case and fill with fresh solution. If you have never warn contacts you can buy the solution at Target or anywhere for $3. It is hard to explain, but if you don’t know how to put a contact lens in, Youtube a video of it. Basically, what I do is gently pull down the lower lid, with head tipped somewhat down, and apply it to your eye while looking up, so you don’t touch your pupil, then let go and roll your eyes around till the contacts adjust to your pupil. If there is a lot of discomfort at first make sure they are clean, not bent, and are not in folded backwards, ha ha this happens sometimes…

AT FIRST, I got somewhat of a head ache…but naturally your body needs time to adjust to new things…as if you had a caffein headache. But after I got used to them, I have been absolutely loving them! 🙂 Mine are really intense but that’s just my style, but they have natural ones on their site as well! I recommend only wearing them for a bit when you start out, not to add stress on your sensitive eyes! Start off by wearing them for 6 hours maximum, and see how they feel. I don’t wear mine all day long, everyday. I wear them as more of a special thing, when I am going out, or want a dressed up look. I have gotten so many complements from people on these colored ones, it makes me just want more kinds. They are fun, and unique, and can really switch up your look. They are also great for people like me, who are always trying to make their eyes look bigger or more enhanced.

I love pairing these lenses with lots of eyeliner and mascara, even false lashes, to really play them up and give them that Barbie Doll look, I mean why not? I suggest if you want them to look more natural, pick a color somewhat close to your eye color. If you want natural looking blue eyes, but have dark brown ones normally, it will be a little difficult for you can slightly see your natural eye color underneath the pupil opening in the lens, but only if someone was really looking. I have been wearing them for a couple weeks now, and completely in love, they are just that interesting pop to my makeup looks! I suggest giving them a try since they are so affordable, and you can really choose whatever ones fit your life best 🙂 You can find them at http://www.thedollyeye.com

Here is an example of a makeup look I rocked to enhance the color of the contacts, since they are green I chose a warm gold tone 🙂 You can see my own green eyes a bit, but it is not so noticeable in person, I love love love these bad boys! :p

Makeup of The Day! Trying Out The Loreal Shimmer Mascara

Hello lovies, so in one of my lasts post I had a mini haul, you can check it out in the links below. In that haul, I bought the Loreal Paris 440 Black Quarts Double Extend Eye Illuminator. At first, I will admit I was a bit disappointed with the mascara, I didn’t think it did anything for my lashes or made them very shimmery. But then I read the packaging, and of course I was using it wrong! Derp! The packaging says you apply the black mascara end first, then when it dries add the sparkly end to your lashes on top of the black coat. Before I just used the sparkly end lol. So I grabbed my makeup remover and washed away the mascara and tried again! Finally, TA DA somewhat sparkly lashes.

It isn’t a crazy amount of shimmer, but that’s is kind of a good thing if I want to go out with a little extra something special and not looking like Lady Ga Ga on concert day. The mascara comes in a bunch of different shades, ones for blue, green, brown eyes, ect. I bought the brown eyes formula, even though I have green eyes, because I thought the color on this one was just so pretty!

After I applied the mascara I complemented it with a little bit of gold shimmer from the shimmer palette in the last June 2013 Ipsy bag. I also put on some brown eye liner on top and below my lids. I also put on some kiwi lipgloss from Bath and Body Works, they literally have the best lip gloss ever, and of course foundation, concealer, and face powder. I hope you guys enjoyed this look, please comment, like, and follow me for some more lovin’. Thank for reading and love always Pearlsnheels ❤

Want The Look? Green Liquid Eyeliner.

IMG_20130624_162310

Like the Look? Something as simple as green liquid liner above the lid, can really change up your everyday makeup look. Especially since I have green eyes, this green liner really makes my natural iris color stand out in the light. If you have blue eyes, I would suggest a brown liquid liner, for grey eyes a blue, and purple can work for brown and green eyes! There are lots of colorful liquid eyeliners out there but the one I used for this look is particularly one of my favorites; Milani Infinite Liquid Liner in 03 Eternal. This one is not very expensive and you can find it at CVS for around $6. Also, to finish off the look I put a white cream eyeshadow stick in white, on my waterline. This trick really opens and brightens up your eye. The white color stick I used is L.A Colors Jumbo Eye Pencil in Sea Shells, this one is a GREAT dupe for NYX eye pencil in milk, and is only $2, I got mine from Walgreens. Lastly, I curled my lashes with my Elf eyelash curler from Target I got for $1, and applied my favorite Jordana Best Lash Extreme Mascara in 301 Black, which is also from Walgreens for $3. (I have a full review of this mascara on my blog)

This is a great look for everyday, if you just want to spice things up! If you guys would like more “Get The Look” posts, let me know!
