Review: Great Glasses for Less from Glasses Shop!

Tired of paying high prices for prescription eyeglasses? Check out Glasses Shop! Glasses Shop is a high quality online eyeglass shop specializing in glasses in every size, shape, color and price range. They have glasses starting from $16.95 and up, which is awesome!

My husband was recently given the opportunity to try out the Mobile Rectangle Black glasses. He has a high prescription, but was able to customize his glasses to get a thinner lens. We really loved the look of these glasses - traditional but with a modern twist. They are also very lightweight and according to him,  comfortable to wear. And they start at just $29.95! My husband is normally mostly a contact wearer, but since getting the glasses, he's been wearing them during the day to work, etc! It's funny because he said people commented on the glasses and definitely felt like it changed his 'look'. I went through something similar last year when I had to wear glasses prior to having my vision corrected. People noticed something was different right away! And what better way to change your look then with some new glasses?  At prices like these, you could buy a couple of different pairs and switch your look up from day to day!



Choosing the right glasses is easy. You can start by searching by gender, price, frame type, and material. Not sure what your glasses will look like? You can try them on by uploading a picture of yourself on to the website.  It's quick and easy.

The ordering process is also easy, you pick your lens type (each pair of glasses comes with a standard single lens but can be upgraded to other lenses), add coatings and/or tints (if desired) and then type in your prescription. Nervous about buying glasses online? The Glasses Shop has a 90 day money back guarantee! 

Each pair of glasses from Glasses shop comes with a standard prescription lens and anti-scratch coating. You also will receive a glasses case and a microfiber cleaning cloth with purchase!

Verdict: My husband loves his glasses from Glasses Shop and we definitely recommend them! We will be ordering from them again in the future!

Get the Look: Bold Metallic Eyes!

I love a bold eye - so when my friends at Mary Kay asked me to recreate this metallic eye look from the Season Finale of Project Runway I was thrilled!

Mary Kay Global Makeup Artist Luis Casco created glowing silver eyes for the models of “Project Runway” winner, Sean Kelly which easily transfers from runway to real way.  I love this look because its fun but still wearable. It also really makes your eyes pop!

I started with a clean, moisturized face. I then applied Mary Kay Cream Eye Color in Glacier Gray all over my eyelids. You can use a brush, but for cream color I find it goes on well with just your fingers.  This acts as a base for the shadow so don't be afraid to go a little heavy.


Next I applied Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Sterling to the bottom part of my eyelids using an eye shadow brush. You want to coat the part of your eye near the lash line and blend the shadow up and out so it just lightly coats the top and outer parts of your eye. (This also helps if you are prone to creasing with cream shadow).


Next I used Mary Kay at Play Eye Crayon in Purple Smoke to line my lash line and along the crease of my eye, giving it a slightly smokey, metallic look:

I had to do this a couple of times to get the full effect of the purple. Then you want to lightly blend it all together:


I finished the look with two coats of Mary Kay Lash Love Mascara in black, a little swipe of mineral powder to combat any shine, and dusted my face and neck with Mary Kay Bronzing Powder in Light to Medium. I then used a coat of Mary Kay at Play Jelly Lip Gloss in Teddy Bare to complete the look.

The finished look: 


Verdict: I really like this look. It's really fun but still very wearable for everyday. I can see myself wearing this look to work and/or when I go out. I will definitely be wearing it to some upcoming holiday parties - how great would it look with a cute black dress?

The mix of cream and powder shadow is great because it's long lasting and high impact. I was also able to do this whole look in less than five minutes, which is also a plus especially on busy mornings!
The Purple Smoke eyeliner is a nice change up to my normal black or brown liner and it is actually very neutral looking on.  I also really loved the Teddy Bare lip gloss - it's a perfect nude lip color that goes on smooth and doesn't leave my lips feeling sticky.

Here is a picture of all of the products I used today (minus the bronzer/ mineral powder) :
