When I got my NEW Circle Lenses from DHL I was super excited to try them out (~think hyper jumping and wondering how the hell I’m going to look with PINK eyes xP) ^^
They colour is amazing, but surprisingly in natural light (outdoors with the sun) it blends with my skin colour and looks freakishly natural! ツ
So I’m going to tell you my crazy experience trying to put them in my eyes ツ
Believe me it was funnay 😛
So my experience was this : Picked up my package from DHL – only took 6 days from date of order till I had them in my hands, and it was so embarassing but the person at the Collections desk asked me “I spoke to you over the phone, what’s in the package that you’re so excited and happy when I said it was available” I did NOT know what to say so /sheepishly giggle lmao
Got home, ripped the baggy open, and stared at the vile for about ~maybe twenty minutes while I was waiting for my Mum to be done in the garden (she was tending to her plant children lol) ^^ I was so hyper looking at them but I had no idea how long it would take to get them into my eye at this point.
It’s the first time I’ve ever used any kind of lens so this experience was totally new and foreign to me, albeit exciting till new and foreign. And I was glad I had my “real life” tutorial maker in my mum since she used to wear contacts ツ
The hardest and most important step : Putting the lens in ツ
Obviously putting the lens in is the most important step — I mean you got to wear what you bought! But, everyone forgot to tell me it’s seriously hard to put something so thin and slippery into your eye D: but after my mother showed me how to put them in, I realized and of course my Mum told me that it’s not something that can be taught exactly, you just have to keep trying till you get it ^^
Now — that took me about 20+ minutes. At first I started with my left eye and it was so difficult, I kept blinking every time I saw my finger getting closer to my eye (fear I guess hehe) – and then my sister held my eye open and I still blinked continuously (: which irritated her so much, her with her short temper “KAY STOP BLINKING ..GEEZ” but we handled it well, with her leaving me and telling me to do it on my own, and I did that.
Worked out well eventually — when I gave up on my left eye I took a little break (~5 minutes) then tried on my right eye, and it was only 3-5 tries and I got it in — but something really odd happened, my eye started to water continuously, literally it’s like I was crying and had no control over it in just the one eye, I didn’t panic about that because it was just about 2 minutes (even less) and I thought it was just because my eyes don’t know what in heavens name I’ve put in them xD after that minute or something it stopped and then I put the left eye in and that I did it 2 tries.
Then ta-da :3 lenses in~!!! just in case you want to know my natural eye-colour is dark brown ღ
Overall, it was hectic and fun all at the same time. I was so excited in the beginning I forgot all about actually putting them in, I assumed it would be doubly (its a word lol) simple and it really truly was NOT simple at all. Something I’ll have to get used to, because I love these and I want to try different colours. It’s part of my new interest 😀 wearing odd coloured lenses and trying out make-up (soon~!! maybe in like a month or two)
I’ll never forget the struggle of my first circle lenses— by struggle I mean how hilarious it was with me giggling and my sister telling me off (in that kind sisterly manner ♥)
More pictures to go with the post :3
My free froggy animal lens case ; and the vile’s that the circle lenses came in :3
With lenses you can’t take that many photos 흑 — but I have one more of the actually package it came in xD
That’s it :3 I’ll wear them for two weeks everyday and then I’ll write a review of these lenses on the blog :3
I already know I’ll be buying more so I’ll create a new category for Circle Lenses 🙂
