I’ve worn glasses ever since i was a little girl.. I distinctly remember being 8 and having a hard time making out words on the blackboard at school. Only my father wore glasses and so I think my mom really hoped that neither of her children would have to do so. But some secret midnight reading after lights out did certainly contribute to my worsening eye-sight. And so lo and behold at 8 i was proud owner of a new pair of pink glasses. I kid you not..they were pink ..which were all the rage when you’re 8 and varying shades of pink were your top 3 choices of favourite colour.
Anyways the glasses did not complement me… I have pictures that bear testament of a really geeky kid and that tag pretty much stuck with me throughout my childhood and it was a tag that I did not like. Anyways the moment I hit high school i decided i had to revamp the way I looked..I mean come on ..here i was trying very had to get the attention of a particularly cute fifth former and he just could not see beyond the glasses.
So at 14 i finally managed to persuade my father to let me get contact lenses and Whoa!!!, What a difference that made to my overall appearance. So needles to say I’ve been a very happy user of contact lenses from that day onward… Did the recipient of my attention notice? . yes, that happened many years later but that is another story to tell.
Fast forward umpteen years later and I still use both, I love the comfort of having my glasses on when I’m lounging about at home but always put on my contact’s when I’m out. Recently I’ve been toying with the idea of having some coloured contacts on to glam up my look. Coloured contact lenses seem to be all the rage and when I am absolutely drawn to the effect it has on making eyes look bigger and more intense. And so when I was given a chance to try some from Glasses Online, I was very glad to do so.
But first some background info on Glasses Online Malaysia.

Now I’m a big fan of online shopping…. a busy schedule and 3 kids in town do not bode well for trips to the shops and mall and so recently I’ve switched to purchasing my items from home. When I saw the huge array of contact lenses and glasses available on Glasses Online Malaysia in every shape & colour, from big brands to trending indie ones..I was so intrigued. What more..they also offer Nation-wide free shipping and 30 days return policy on all orders
So are you itching to see what I’ve picked out for myself….
I’ve been trying to inject some ‘glam’ into my look so I decided on something that would add some intensity to my eyes yet not steer too far from its original colour. Besides I’ve been really digging the bigger iris looks as it makes the eyes seem a little more dramatic without the need for mascara and eyeliner.
Was all too keen to try this out 🙂 but first I had to remove my regular contact lenses
So what do you think? I’m liking my new Blincon Coloured Contact Lens loads !!! I like that it makes my eyes stand out lot more. I do think it looks a lot more elegant and draws the attention away from the rest of my face to my eyes… The plus point is that they were really comfortable too.. I’ve always had reservations about the comfort and whether the contact lenses would slide around in my eye but I had no reason to worry, these stayed in place beautifully. I’m so geared that i’m already ready to take the next step and get some fancy colours and see whether they work for me ..and the great news is I know exactly where to get them from.
So if you’re shopping around for some new contact lenses, glasses or even sunnie’s head on to Glasses Online Malaysia, there’s sure to be something to tickle your fancy.
