My New Frames // ft. Firmoo Glasses

February 2, 2015

These glasses were sent to me by Firmoo. All opinions are my own.

I was delighted when Firmoo asked if they could send me a pair of prescription glasses in exchange for an (honest) review on my blog. You have no idea how happy I was to choose a new pair of glasses, because none of the glasses I had were actually my prescription. I’m excited to have these in the correct prescription and be able to see things again. Like, leaves on trees and blades of grass.

Ordering glasses through Firmoo was quick and easy. I first looked at the measurements of my other glasses, since I know those fit my face, and found glasses on Firmoo with the same dimensions. I chose these glasses in the color “brown/clear.” Before completing check-out you enter in your prescription, choose the type of lenses you want, then they’ll be on their way to you!

I was more than willing to do this review, but I had to know if Firmoo offered quality lenses, and alas! They do. They cost a little bit extra, but it’s not much, and it’s totally worth it in the end (especially if you have a high prescription). Had I purchased these glasses myself they would have cost me $100, when a normal pair costs me no less than $500 at any retail store. In case you’re wondering, my eyeglass prescription lenses are -9.25.

I’m pleased to say that I can actually see things again. Without squinting. Aside from being able to see, I like how lightweight these frames are, and I think the coloring goes well with my complexion. I also loved that the glasses came in a sturdy case that reminds me of a map of Middle Earth (even though it’s Seattle, but I can pretend) along with a cleansing cloth. All in all this was a great experience I had with Firmoo, and I will be ordering glasses from them in the future.

Below is the makeup I used for these photos (minus the liquid liner I used). I wear glasses 6/7 days of the week, and this is my normal makeup routine when wearing them. For more tips on how to wear makeup with glasses, read my post here.

What do you think of my new frames? Have you ever ordered glasses online before?

    These glasses look amazing on you! You’re stunning! I love the frames, especially how they are clear on the bottom. I have a few different styles of glasses, but can’t seem to find a style that suit me the best! Also, I am loving the case, I’m with you on the Middle Earth, that’s immediately what I thought of when I saw it. Even the good people of Middle Earth need glasses!

      I’m sure any pair of glasses would look great on your beautiful face, Becky!

    Thanks for the review. I’ve had 1/2 of every pair of glasses I order work, as I am in denial about how abnormally large my face is. I’ll give them a shot! :)

      I’ve had to return glasses that I’ve purchased at Coastal TWICE because their lenses are so crappy :( It was so disappointing, which is why I didn’t want to get my hopes up with Firmoo. Luckily they have really nice lenses and I’m so so so happy that I can get glasses from them that can work… and that I can afford!

      Yay! Thank you so much! If you get any glasses from them, let me know how they worked for you! ^_^

      It’s amazing to think of all the details I’ve missed out on just because I haven’t been wearing the right prescription. Hooray for being able to see again!

    The one time I ordered glasses online it was not fun. They just didn’t work for my face and despite the company’s promise, would only give me 50% of my money back. I love those frames on you though!!

      Oh no! I’ve purchased frames from Coastal before, and had to return them because they didn’t work at all for me. It really made for a bad experience, and I didn’t want to purchase frames online again- until Firmoo contacted me for a review. I’m pleased to say they are great to work with, have wonderful customer service, and nice quality frames/lenses. :)

    I have always wanted to try ordering frames online and have thought of using Warby Parker, but will definitely try this company out. The glasses you picked look great on you!

      I’m not sure how Warby Parker’s lenses are- definitely make sure that they have a good option of lens types first!

    Those glasses look so great on your face! Firmoo sounds awesome too, I will have to check them out! I wonder how ordering glasses online works with eye insurance? Your makeup looks so fresh and clean – can’t wait to check out your post on your makeup routine for glasses since I wear mine a lot too!

      Hi! Firmoo didn’t ask me for eye insurance. All they needed was my prescription, which I already had!

  • Reply LindaLibraLoca February 4, 2015 at 2:17 am

    Those glasses really suit you well. I just can’t get used to wearing glasses, so it is contacts all day every day, except
    For very rare occaisions.

    • Reply Jenny February 4, 2015 at 9:42 am

      I wish I was the same! I started wearing glasses when I was 8 years old, then switched to contacts when I was 12, but within the past few years I’ve had to go back to glasses because I can’t find any contacts that don’t hurt my eyes (apparently my body is developing an allergy to contacts, according to my eye doctor).

  • Reply laura mitbrodt February 4, 2015 at 2:43 am

    Its funny how you mentioned the way I styled my hair. I honestly didn’t intend to style it that way. I usually only wash my hair twice a week and then blow dry it.

    Those are some lovely frames! They look so good on you :). I’ve personally been a little wary of buying glasses online because I’m so fussy with how they look/fit considering I wear them all the time. But after reading this post I might give it a go. It looks like there’s probably a lot more variety than what the local optometrist has.

      It’s rather easy with Firmoo. I’ve ordered glasses online through other companies before, and ended up having to return them because the lenses were too crappy for my high prescription. Firmoo gives the dimensions of each pair of frames, so if you look at the inside of your glasses you currently own you’ll see numbers on them somewhere. Those are your dimensions, and if you’re happy with how your current glasses fit, just find some glasses on Firmoo with measurements closely matching yours! It really is so simple, and a heck of a lot cheaper than going to the eye doctor for glasses!

    Hi Jenny, great review and glasses. They look so cute on you! I’m actually in the market for a new pair of glasses or just getting my new prescription in my old ones. So, I’ll definitely check it out. And, I like all of your make-up. I have a few NYX products, I think I have their mineral powder which is a dupe for Make UP Forever’s version. I’ve been wondering about the illuminating powder, I can see the slight glimmer and glow it leaves, VERY PRETTY! Hope you have a lovely day!
