Taking your Halloween costume to the next level...

Do you know what's frustrating? You want to make an impression, take your fancy dress costume to the next level, go and make the effort and expense to buy some fancy coloured contact lenses and they're rubbish: You try them on and they look nothing like the picture, and they are 10,000 times darker and duller. If only you could see it on a real person. Unless contact lenses buyers/wearer start to blog their experiences share their real unedited pictures or videos, buying contact lenses is always going to be a risky business.


Whilst looking for some contact lenses yesterday, I stumbled upon eyesbright.com who have been going the extra mile to show us what their lenses look like on a real person. They have set a whole youtube channel full of normal people like you and me, men or women, showcasing the lenses in a video footage and it's quite simply genius! And and and they really made an effort to create a makeup look around the character to showcase the lenses.




Not all the lenses that eyebrights sell have got youtube videos for them but it's a start.


Fancy, for example, some Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter's eyes?
This is the official picture and this is the video for it.







Quite a difference huh?








If you're wondering, despite the strong 'advertorial' tone of this blog post, no one has contacted me to tell you about eyebrights. Probably the whole world already knows about them. I didn't personally and wanted to shout over the rooftops about their youtube channel, as I think it's simple, revolutionary and helpful.











Will you be getting some lenses for this Halloween?

I've already got some lenses! I like seeing them in videos as well, especially circle lenses.

Ace idea! I've been wary of buying lenses so far since the only pics shown are usually photoshopped templates.

I'm terrified of anything touching my eyes, so I would never try lenses, but these look so awesome! Still won't be trying it, but love looking at the pictures :)

I bought the white zombie lenses the Halloween before last. They were great and really scary, but they ruined my peripheral vision. I felt like I had blinkers on. But they looked so good it was worth it :)

Ohhh I love how contact lens look on other people but I don't like the idea of actually putting them in my own eyes! lol

I hadn't even thought of the drama associated with buying contacts and having them differ from the product photos, even though I've read blogs where they've complained about the colour being darker and such. Maybe I'm just slow in the brain, but I guess I'm not into contacts enough to notice these things XD this sounds like a great idea though!
