barbie lenses from lensvillage

There is something exciting about trying new things. Especially when it comes to beauty. As you know by now, I am all about testing new makeup, trying new brands, and incorporating new products into my day to day routine. But something I have never tried? Coloured contact lenses. This is something I have always wanted to check off of my wish list. More specifically? Blue contacts. Naturally, my eyes are a mix between blue and green. Sometimes they look sort of blue-ish and other times they look super green. I always wondered what it would be like to have straight up blue eyes. Especially because my twin brother has the most incredible blue eyes ever! 

I remember being in high school, asking my parents if I could have coloured contacts. They said no, no, and no again. Alas! Now that I am older, coloured contacts are still something I have thought about trying time and time again. I just hadn't taken the plunge yet. Until now. I was lucky enough to try a gorgeous pair from LensVillage. They have a massive selection of circle lenses to choose from. There were so many different styles, colours, and designs to choose from. It was amazing! 

What did I order? The Barbie Ash Blue Lens. That vibrant blue shade instantly caught my eye. I couldn't wait for them to arrive - or to try them out. Ready to take a look at my new lenses from LensVillage? Here goes....

The lenses were well packaged and came with a large contact case. Definitely a plus! Something else I really loved? In person, the lenses looked exactly as they did on the website. That was a major sigh of relief. There is nothing I hate more than ordering one thing and having something totally different arrive. LensVillage definitely delivers in that regard. Now for the actual experience. I found the lenses easy to put on and wear - and they were quite comfortable. I had no issues whatsoever. 

Now for the appearance. Let me just say, I am obsessed with these lenses! They can completely change my look in an instant. The colour is so beautiful. I had spent so many years wondering what it would be like to have blue eyes and know I know. That in itself was super exciting. Honestly? I just love these lenses. They made me feel like a million bucks. It was so fun being able to experiment with my look. I think that is the best thing about coloured contacts. You get to have fun and do something different. 

So without further ado, here are some pictures of me wearing my Barbie Ash Blue Lenses from LensVillage!

Overall I was very happy with my experience. The lenses arrived quickly, were well packaged, easy to wear, and looked great. What more could I possibly ask for? It was wonderful to try out coloured contacts....and enjoy having blue eyes for a while! For more information on LensVillage, be sure to check out their website
