To those who knew me personally would know how I've always been on a safe side but wouldn't be surprised to see me try bungee jumping, sky diving or anything crazy! My heart would skip gazillion times but its something not impossible for me to do because I may not be the most adventurous type but I love to challenge myself!
Here's a funny thing about me though, would you believe that I would choose bungee jumping on top of the Macau Tower over putting on contact lenses? I think it has to do with my super bad eye allergies from an eye drops years ago that puts a huge scare to my "eyeball" life!
Me being the pusher, I put on contact lenses to be part of my "superficial bucket list", things to do superficially before I die! *laughs* Gosh, I've got nothing to do eh? hahaha
Anyways, on my Korea trip, I went to this Myeong-dong underground shopping and you can see shops after shops of Eyeglasses, and contact lenses. I told Mr. AMW that since I'm in the land of GEO lenses, I might as well purchase one since it could be cheaper there and it has 3 years shelf life! 3 years is enough time frame for me to muster up the courage to at least try right?
This whole set costs 25,000 Won (approx Php1,000/$23.00)
GEO Angel Grey Lens
Includes: All-in-one cleanser, portable case and eye dropper
I actually had it kept somewhere and I never had the courage to try it because...just because...I'm a weakling that way! hahaha I even thought of giving it away a friend who wear contacts! Yup, giving up!
Well, somewhere out there, the universe gave me a slap on my face by telling me to get this done and not wonder how it feels to wear contact lens or how it feels to touch my eyeballs! *laughs* I've said NO to a lot of contact lens reviews way back and I haven't had any coming my way for a year! Just when I was going to give away my own purchase of the GEO Angel Lens, Dashing Beauty Shop messaged me for a review of the GEO contact lenses she sells! And she sells it for only Php670.00 LOCAL free shipping but this one is PREORDER! I was told she gets this directly from GEO company and the retail price of this is actually Php750.00!

Doesn't this remind you of WALL-E? *tee hee*
Ok, here it goes! After a couple of YouTube viewing and tips from contact lens users, one fateful night, I finally did it! Gosh, you just can't imagine the happiness and contentment I felt when I first put it on! It was like winning a lottery! *laughs* Are you ready to see? Please bear with me as I look quite stressed! Hahaha it was done several hours before I go to bed...
I think I can be part of Twilight? Or locally...IMMORTAL? *laughs* A closer shot on GEO Angel Grey Lens. Sorry for the blank, soul-less eye expression, it's my first after 30 years, so please be gentle! LOL
It looks quite natural in person. The moment it was put on, I didn't feel a thing so it's all good...
Now, the hardest part is..removing it! Trust me, you wouldn't want to know how I look like trying to remove it! I actually did! And it's the feeling of winning a Lottery plus House and Lot plus Luxury Car! You seriously wouldn't want to see that! hahahaaha
Now, I wonder:
"Have you conquered your beauty-related fear?"
it could be eyelash extensions, eyelash curling, injections, etc...
