Eyes are the windows to your soul, so the saying goes. Have you ever yearned for different coloured eyes to the ones you were born with? I’ve always loved green eyes so when Feel Good Contacts * offered me the chance to try some of their coloured lenses, you can imagine my excitement. You can probably also guess which colour I chose as well (!) so how did I get on?
Feel Good Contacts
Feel Good Contacts are an online contact lenses retailer. They stock 96% of all lenses and offer a Price Match Guarantee on your standard and prescription contact lenses, colour contacts, contact lens solutions, eye drops, and eye care products.
They sell only branded contacts and the branded equivalent of many high street opticians’ own brand lenses, including Specsavers’ Easyvision, Boots Premium and Vision Express lenses. And in most cases, if you order before 8pm you’ll get your products through your letterbox the next day – how’s that for service?
My contact lenses
Having been a confirmed glasses wearer for most of my life, I realised I needed to look into contact lenses after having Flora. Toddlers and glasses do not mix well and I spent far too much time removing my glasses from her or from being embedded painfully in my face. To be fair, I only really need them for driving or (rare) trips to the cinema as I have astigmatisms in both eyes. Unfortunately, the colour contacts don’t come with a toric prescription so I opted for plain colour lenses.
As you can see, inside the box were the branded coloured monthly lenses from Fresh Look, some lens solution, a lens holder, and the loveliest of touches, a packet of Haribo Starmix!
The FreshLook Colorblends range comes in 12 colours. Grey, Green or Brown offer enhancement for lighter colour eyes, and Blue, Pure Hazel and Honey add a richer shade to darker eyes. Or you could go for Brilliant Blue, Gemstone Green, True Sapphire or even Amethyst for a more striking change update. Each colour blends three different shades together, creating a look to enhance your natural eye colour.
I opted for Green as I wasn’t sure how “green” they would be, and because it was my first time with coloured lenses. As you can see, they’re quite a subtle shade of green. And they are the softest lenses I’ve ever tried, which makes them slightly tricky to insert as they keep flopping over (!) But once in, they are incredibly comfortable.
My eyes are mid-brown so here’s my David Bowie shot with just one lens in, so you can see the difference between my natural colour and the lens colour.
And here I am with both lenses in. If we could all please focus on the stunning lenses and not my eyebags or wrinkles that would be amazing, thank you 🙂
Would I buy them?
In hindsight, this Green shade is more subtle than I was expecting but I actually really like it. The colour is billed as an enhancement rather than a complete change and that’s exactly what I got. I’m very much looking forward to getting my month’s use out of them. Because much as I love my make up, I tend to play it safe and stick with the same colours rather than experiment. So this is a far easier way for me to ring some changes. And next time (because there will definitely be a next time) I’m very tempted to try Honey (for some leopard eyes), Amethyst (channelling my inner Elizabeth Taylor) and, of course, Gemstone Green for some spectacularly emerald eyes.
If you’ve ever been curious about how you’d look with blue, green, grey, brown or violet eyes, then I’d highly recommend giving Feel Good Contacts a go. The online ordering process is really simple and the delivery is superfast. And if you use the code ‘FEELGOODTIME’ you can get 10% off your first order too. I’m so pleased with my Green lenses and I can’t wait to try my next new shade in a month’s time.
Which shade would you like to try? Let me know!
