It seems like I’m receiving more products to do with eyes, eye-wear and cosmetic eye changes lately. I can’t say that I’m complaining though, as they are the only feature that I like on my hot mess of a head. I would like to thank Spooky Eyes for sending me these aqua dragon contact lenses free of charge, in order to facilitate this review.
Creepy, aren’t they?!
I tried to make my eyes the main focus in this, so pardon my lack of eyebrows but I didn’t opt to dig them out or draw them back in after covering everything with powder, It’s a shame that I wasn’t sent vampire or zombie contact lenses, as I could have done the whole shebang with very little make up. My lack of sunshine does wonders for my skin but very little for its pallor. I own it.
I put in my dragon eyes contact lenses while my husband was out with the kids so that I could get some pictures without an audience, or without a toddler hand in the frame. They like to ruin every one of my blog pictures with the world’s cutest photobombs. Well, when they got home I just went to greet everyone like normal and was met with mass hysteria, crying and panicked inquiries like, “Mummyyyy!! Why your eyes look like monsters?!”
Clearly, they did the job.
I did find that these contact lenses, like the Hulk Eyes lenses that I reviewed for Spooky Eyes previously, felt slightly thicker than other coloured pairs that I have worn. They were, however, easier to put in. I’m not sure if that was the lens itself or it was simply my lucky day but application was very simple. I also found that they were worn for a longer period of time than the others, without my eye drying too badly.
What was weird about these dragon eyes lenses was the fact that the black slit turned around on its own free will. This did add to the creepy aspect of things, as I was google-eyed half the time, but they did not stay put as they should have.
I would recommend Spooky Eyes contact lenses for any short period of wear but, for longer periods of time, I suggest purchasing some Visine for every couple of hours. If you like the Aqua Dragon look, you can find the product page here.
