Pink contacts? Yup, when I first heard of them, my initial reaction was also -- wtf how freaky! They became popular in Korea a couple years ago and since then I have seen many beauty bloggers and Youtubers wearing them. In person it just brightens the eyes a little -- and looks mostly light brown or hazel unless you really closely examine the eyes haha.
Since Shoppingholics offered to sponsor me a pair of lenses, I figured I'd might as well give them a try. After all I'm here to experiment so you don't have to, right? The site is really awesome because not only do they have a huge selection of lenses, they also offer some of the most popular Asian cosmetics such as Dollywink, Candy Doll, Missha, My Beauty Diary, and more!
Shoppingholics is based in Malaysia and delivery took three weeks. They provide you with a tracking number which is definitely useful when you're excitedly waiting for a package. When it finally arrived, I was pleasantly surprised -- they have BY FAR the best packaging out of any of the contact lens companies I have dealt with!
I mean how adorable is this -- personal card and all! And they even included a Dariya Hair Magic Sheet which I've been meaning to purchase anyways! (For those of you not familiar with the fringe holders, it's a piece of velcro that you can slide over your bangs or fringe and it magically holds it back!)
They sent me the Adult Pink Circle Lens. It does look quite pink in the bottle but once I put them on, they just have a mostly light brown effect. The pictures make them look extra bright! They were quite comfortable -- I wore them out to lunch and didn't feel a thing. I think the purpose of these crazy colored lenses are to give your eyes the effect of wearing bright make-up. I'm not wearing any shadows in the pictures -- just eyeliner, but it still gave me a "colorful" effect.
Although I wouldn't wear these to my day job or a first date, I think they would be fun for a night out and I'm definitely open to trying out other pink lenses!
The Adult Pink Circle Lens is currently on promotion for $21.90 at Shoppingholics.com
