Hey guys! I’m loving this heat so much! It feels like Summer is actually on its way. To be fair knowing London though, it will be raining again in a few days! (hehe!) As you know from my last post; the review on the Urban Decay Highligher Palette, I absolutely love holographic and iridescent things so much! They are just so satisfying to look at in the light. So when GlassesShop kindly offered to send me out a pair of their eyeglasses or prescription sunglasses, I selected a pair that kinda went along with my current iridescent obsession. They are so gorgeous and photographed so nicely. I have a nice lil review today on these cute sunnies and a 50% discount code for you to use so stick around ’till the end to see that!
For those who are unfamiliar with GlassesShop, they are a online retailer for prescripted and non-prescripted eyeglasses and sunglasses. You have the option to get clear lenses, if you want fashion glasses or have your prescriptive lenses fitted for you!
The glasses that I chose were non-prescripted sunglasses called the Edith Round – Multicolour. They were very securely packaged in a frosted glasses case, wrapped in a microfiber glasses cleaning cloth for extra protection.
Edith Round polarized sunglasses are made from durable TR material, round-shaped design and engraved metal temples fit most women who want to have a pair of fashion and beautiful polarized sunglasses. Prescription sunglasses and non-prescription sunglasses both are available.
As the description suggests, the glasses are very round, not completely circular but a nice balance in between. The main colours incorporated are purple-blue tones, with small accents of gold.
The sides of the sunglasses are what really drew me in. They have the most beautiful gold metal engraving, which creates a lovely almost dainty look whilst actually being incredibly strong. It complements the marbled colours on the main frame so well and adds a lil bit of pizzazz to the overall design. The gold engraving continues to the outer corner of the glasses frame. The nose piece is also gold but does not have the engraving on it which I personally like as I would find it too overwhelming if there were engraving everywhere.
I found the glasses to fit really well on my face. I have quite a small face and they weren’t too overwhelming on me, they were a comfortable size. They sat nicely on my face and I didn’t experience any tightness or irritation when wearing them at all. I do think that if you have a rather petite face structure that these might be a little bit on the big side but they are definitely wearable nevertheless and for me, create the perfect slightly over-sized look. Something that is definitely worth a try though, is using the ‘Try It On’ feature on the website. There you can choose different models to place the glasses on to see how they may look on yourself. You can even use a photo of yourself to test how each frame would look on you which I think is really helpful before buying.
Guys, do you see the lenses! My goodness they are incredible! GlassesShop designed these to have a kinda purple-green-blue mirror coating on the lenses. It acts in the same way something that is holographic would, as the colours alternate in different lightings. When wearing the glasses as well, the image you see through the lenses is slightly tinted purple which I think is really cool. It is not a heavy full-on purple just a mild tint, it may not be to everyone’s taste but I personally really take a fancy to it.
Eventhough I am a glasses wearer, I chose not to get my prescription put into these Sunglasses. However on GlassesShop you do have the option to input what you prescription is and they are able to put it in the glasses frames for you! This does not affect you delivery time either so it’s a win-win situation. Though, if I were to say one thing, is that the delivery can either be quite unpredictable. Upon receiving this pair of sunglasses, they arrived in around 7-9 days. However, when receiving my eyeglasses which I wrote about here, they took closer to around 17-20 days.
As a whole I’m absolutely LOVING the tortoise shell design on the main frame and the colours are right up my street! I really like my new sunglasses and I can’t wait to wear these all summer! Now for the bit you’ve all been waiting for….. GlassesShop given me a code for you guys so that you can get 50% off when you order! Use GSHOT50 at the checkout to slash your total by 50%! I hope you all have a lovely week and when I next speak to you all, I’ll be on my summer holiday! (Whoooooo!)
P.S: I’m so close to 0.5k on Twitter! Can we get there by the end of July? Byesies! Xxx
