Purple MAC Look

Today I wore the Circle Lenses for the first time. They’re actually really comfortable. They also don’t impede my vision like my red vampire contacts do. I could wear them for 6.5 hours before my eyes felt tired. By comparison though, I wear my normal contacts for 12 or more hours (even though I probably shouldn’t). The contacts look very unusual in the close up pictures. However, in person they look cool. Some people noticed right away, and others were like ‘what’s different about you?’

And some cute pictures of Phaedra.

      Whooooaaa. Trippy contacts! Want. <3

      I like the all-purple. Eyes, eyeshadow, lips. Really cool looking!

    • The Peach

      Those contacts are awesome!

      • Phyrra

        Yay thank you! I really love them and now want more!

      Your eyes look so cool with those!

      • Phyrra

        Yay thanks!

    • cinseven13

      You know I love the whole purple look!

      Are the lenses your prescription? My violet ones are only a -6 so I only wear them if I don’t plan on doing anything like driving. Now I’ll have to pull mine out for a FOTD!

      • Phyrra

        Yes, they’re -9 and -9.5 :)

        I really like them!

      The contacts look cool, but it made my eyes water to look at them. LOL The purples you chose were really good together.

      • Phyrra

        Aww, I really like the contacts though. They’re very similar to wearing my normal ones.

        Thanks! I really like the purples and I haven’t worn them much lately, and never together.

      I love the lenses! And you and Phaedra look beautiful!

      • Phyrra

        Thank you *hug*!
        I need to see if I can find some blue-teal lenses somewhere in my prescription. After searching last night I’ve only found up to -6, which isn’t strong enough for my eyes. Arg! I so need to get lasik.

      Love, Love, Love it!!!! I have non-script circle lenses (I’m wearing them in the Halloween pics on my site).I had, like, no peripheral vision with them on, which may be because I got them supercheap from an e-tailer…anyway, yours look great, and this is a great look to debut them!

    • http://aijuswhanakno.blogspot.com Mika chan

      Whoa that’s so crazy! I’m so used to seeing Japanese people wear them, and of course their eyes are dark brown. It gives a more interesting effect when the eyes are light like yours. I like it!

      • Phyrra

        Yay thanks! Yeah I really like the circle lenses! They’re so neat!

    • Saila

      Those contacts are cool! I like the purple look, too (surprise surprise :D)

      • Phyrra

        Yay thank you! Lol! I thought you might like the purples :)

    • http://beautifulwithbrains.com gio

      Those contacts look really cool! The makeup is very pretty too.

      • Phyrra

        Thank you! I had a lot of fun with this!

    • Invicta

      The contacts really make naturally light iris colors look especially interesting. I’m happy to know that they’re comfortable to wear & fit well. They look great with this eyeshadow look & because they make your eyes look more cool-toned, I’d definitely try wearing them with cool-toned eyeshadows.

      • Phyrra

        I will give them a try! I loooooove them!

    • Teaspoon

      Hey… did you cut your hair?
      You and Phaedra are so pretty together :3
      I love all of the purple! I see you’re having fun with it :p I bet a nice neutral look would be extra striking with the contacts, if you wanna try that sometime. Or, like they always say purple accentuates green eyes, try green to accentuate the purple eyes!

      I’d love to get a pair of fun contacts if you can really use them for a full year. I would have to wait for the ones I want to be offered with a prescription though, since I can’t leave the house without corrective lenses–mostly because I can’t find the door out :(

      • Phyrra

        Nope, I’ve been growing my hair out :) But I am curling it around the face.

        I may try a neutral matte look with these contacts.

        These are prescription, -9 and -9.5. I can’t see without my glasses or contacts. I can only see blurs without corrective lenses or glasses. So I feel your pain!

        • Teaspoon

          Having horrible eyesight is a real downer. I’m getting Lasik as soon as financially possible :( I LIKE glasses, I just don’t like depending on them!

          As for the hair, I like it. It looks really classy curled that way :3

    • http://papermoth.blogspot.com/ Kim

      I love circle lenses on you! have you seen the pink ones before? I think those would look stunning on you also <3

      • Phyrra

        I’ve seen the pink but I haven’t found them in my prescription yet. So if you see them in -9 and -9.50 let me know :)

    • http://www.beautyfrugalista.com Amanda

      Damn. I rushed over to look at these and they top out at -10.0. I’m -10.5. :( *grumbles* That .5 is enough of a difference that I can’t safely drive.

      They look great on you!

      • Phyrra

        I totally feel your pain. I’m so afraid of my prescription going up again! I just desperately want to do the lasik, but soo afraid of medical procedures.

    • http://www.beautyfrugalista.com Amanda

      YES! I’ve had so many “standard procedures” go south that I’m terrified of making my eyes worse.

      • Phyrra

        I feel your pain :( I had a nasty anxiety attack during my MRI. That was less than pleasant.

    • http://silhouettescreams.blogspot.com SilhouetteScreams

      The lenses look awesome :) usually circle lenses freak me out but these look cool

      • Phyrra

        Glad you like!

    • http://themoonmaiden-blix.blogspot.com/ BLIX

      The lenses look cool. I’ve never needed glasses so I don’t know how I’d feel wearing contacts. I like the colour of them. :-)
      They go very well with your beautiful makeup!

      • Phyrra

        Thanks! I wish I had better vision, but I love wearing contacts. Sometimes, it would be nice to go without them.
