Frugal Family Fun: Eyebuy Review & Giveaway!!

Sunday, November 21, 2010

Eyebuy Review & Giveaway!! recently offered the opportunity to review a pair of prescription glasses for my blog!! I was excited to get to try some new glasses! I was really eager to see their selection and check out the site, and started shopping right away! I liked several different pairs before choosing the Alessandria frames:


Are you looking for a really beautiful pair of eyeglasses? These black frames could be the ones for you. Their semi-rimless oval lenses are stylish and elegant, while their side-arms are subtly decorated with ivy-leaf design. Delicate, chic, and attractive - what more could you want?

I really like the colors but unfortunately I didn't really like them so much on my face. That is the problem with shopping online sometimes!! I do wear them around the house and to give my eyes a break from contacts. has a virtual try on program, where they say you can try before you buy.  I tried this and didn't get the results I wanted. I tried with a webcam, I tried it with a pre taken picture, and neither way worked.  The glasses were way too in ratio to my face, and when I used a closer face shot, the glasses got bigger.  It didn't work.  So I tried to find one of their models with a face shape most similar to mine.  I liked them on her!  The funny thing is, I tried again and got it to work, but AFTER the glasses arrive!! And on top of that, they look cuter on the website than they did on me!! Maybe I just need to get used to them more!

I'm not sure why I had troubles the first few times I used the Try Before You Buy, but now that I have I think it is great! I love being able to try different frames, and you can even save the images and compare different frames easily!! This makes it easier to shop online and get something you like!!
