Pink Paradise. What an interesting name for a website, right? The first time I looked at the website, I was quite overwhelmed by how pink this website was (hence the name, I suppose).
I bought a previous pair of contacts from this website (Venus Eye Brown) and so I decided to try out another pair from the website. I went with the Geo series – Bella Grey.
The contacts came in two separate vials with the prescriptions written on the top. My eyes are a whopping 5.25 (left) and 7.25 (right) – terrible eyesight, right? I picked the 5 and 7 since these were the closest to my prescription.
*Note: When buying contacts, make sure to get the prescription closest to your own (lower) or you may harm your eyes.
These contacts costed me a total of $19.90 from Pink Paradise. The diameter was 14.2mm (more of a natural look) with a base curve of 8.6mm. These contacts can be worn for a year and the contacts came with a pink macaron lens case
At first glance, the colour was definitely the grey that I expected it to be from the images I saw from the website. It is more of a medium dark grey colour. I’ve only ever tried grey contacts once before but the colour came out to be blue instead.
As you can tell from the above photo, the colour isn’t the same grey as it was in the vial, but this colour was a lot closer to grey than it is to blue. I’m not quite sure if my dark eyes change the colour of the contacts when worn, but this often happens to me. Be wary when you buy the contacts since it won’t exactly be the same colour as you expect it to be when worn, but it’s kind of a nice surprise when you do.
Coloured contacts are recommended to be worn for 6-8 hours (same as regular contacts). I occasionally wear my contacts longer (I know.. very bad..) but they stayed relatively moist when worn.
Overall, I thought these contacts were worth the cost and the colour was able to show a lot better on my eyes than the Venus Eye Brown contacts that I’ve previously bought.
