Pinky Paradise Colored Lenses

Disclosure: A sample product was provided to help facilitate the review. No other form of compensation took place. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

One of the things my teen daughter and her friends like to do is wear colored contact lenses. We order the no-prescription variety, but you can have them made with a prescription too.  She puts her lenses in for special occasions, like a trip to the mall (yes, to my daughter the mall is a very special occasion ;) ), and her & her friends ooh and ahh over each other's lenses.

Currently my daughter has a pair of purple lenses, and a pair of smiley face lenses, and she really wanted one more pair that were green. She takes good care of her things, so I told her okay (a little behind the scenes bribery went on there too, but I digress). She chose the EOS Dolly Eye Green lenses from Pinky Paradise.

Before the Lenses

With the Pinky Paradise EOS Dolly Green Lenses

Of course, I like her natural eye color. I guess that's a mom thing. But I don't mind her wearing contacts here and there for decorative purposes/a fashion statement either.

Pinky Paradise offers a HUGE selection of lenses. Literally most anything you can think of in terms of design, they have it. My daughter was 'this close' to ordering the Hello Kitty lenses, but in the end the green she originally wanted won out. There are also a lot of fun cases to choose from, to go with your circle lenses. We received one of the cute animal cases.  My daughter says the contacts are extremely comfortable, though she can feel them move from time to time, especially if she's moving her eyes up or down, which she hasn't noticed with other lenses. It doesn't bother her at all, but I thought I would note it for the review. Would we order again from Pinky Paradise?  Only five thousand times, if she had her way. There's something about going through the website and viewing all of the different lenses that makes her a very happy young lady. :)

  21. While I like the color and the statement, I do like her own eye color best. (Maybe I am so used to a natural look.) But, I would definitely try a blue if I had the chance. :)

  30. I used to wear color lenses when I was younger just because it was fun. And I loved the green ones because I felt like I had my dad's eyes. I was so naive. But I have to agree your daughter has beautiful eyes! Just beautiful! I had never heard of these but I might look into them. Just for fun I might want to get some for myself :)

  39. I would love to try out some crazy colored contacts at Halloween the only problem is that I do wear prescription and it's usually too expensive to bother getting prescription colored contacts to just wear once or twice. If only I wasn't 1/2 blind lol.
