Too many people assume that the only way to showcase your snowflake-like individuality is to wear splashily sloganed t-shirts or grow a moustache in the shape of your ID-barcode. Find a better way to ensure your personality pops and pop your peepers with cosmetic contact lenses for R202.50 from Cosmetic Innovations.
A favourite ‘tis the season holiday for many South Africans is strolling through their neighbourhood and eyeballing the Christmas decorations and twinkling lights bedecking windows up and down the streets. Considering the eyes are the windows to the soul, it’s only fitting that you deck those out too. Though you could always strap twinkling lights to the frame of your glasses, you’d need to ensure that you’re always near a power-source, and that could become very frustrating.
Rather than pimp your glasses, pimp your peepers with either cosmetic colour or funky lenses. With colours like hazel brown and light or dark grey, you could ditch your normal colour for a whole year and see the world through different eyes. As they say, the grass is always greener on the other side and those with blue eyes want brown and vice versa. If you’re looking for more of a walk on the wild-side (or you want to terrify Santa when he comes down the chimney), the Black and Red Spider lenses or Yellow Cat Eyez provide a funky touch to even the most unexciting of irises. If you have a friend who lives for shock value, it’ll probably make a perfect Christmas gift too.
The contact lenses can be worn day-in and day-out for a year and come in glass vials to ensure they’ll look good under the tree or on the bathroom counter. Bonus points that delivery is within five days for those impatient to get their ocular appendages kitted out.Ocular Fact: A world-famous cosmetic optometrist invented what is now known as the world’s most irritating contact lens.
