Optometrist and MAC Eyewear Ambassador Elizabeth Yeowart-Montgomery tries and reviews eyewear from the first Specs by Prue collection. 
MAC Eyewear and Dame Prue have collaborated to create a brand new range of eyewear, Specs by Prue. Dame Prue is hands-on and involved in every step of the design and marketing process, from looking at the first designs to approving the final imagery.  
Specs by Prue are characterised by bold colours with strong, clean silhouettes. Each shape comes in a choice of colour ways to suit every preference. Ts an optometrist and eyewear ambassador, I am fortunate to review eyewear on a regular basis. These my favourites from the collection- but I admit that I was spoiled for choice! 
Style 22002 
This is a bold and unusual colour-combination in a universally-flattering silhouette. 
Style 22003 
A frame with soft angles. Here, the flash of contrasting purple makes the red sing. 
Style 22007 
The asymmetry of the colours makes this style stand out from the crowd. It manages to be both daring and eminently wearable. I can’t decide which colour way I like the best. 
Specs by Prue 22012 
I think this is my absolute favourite. I love the take on the cat-eye silhouette and the tortoiseshell and teal look beautiful together. This has made its way into my own eyewear collection.. 
Specs by Prue 22015 
This is such a fun frame which will draw all of the compliments. I wasn’t sure if the yellow would suit me, but I think it does. It’s surprisingly wearable in a very flattering shape. I adore it. 

Specs by Prue: My Thoughts on Fit and Comfort 

Every style I tried was supremely comfortable. This isn’t always the case with a chunky acetate frame- so I was pleased. They are beautifully finished too- smooth. Again, some acetates can be a little rough or even sharp. 
This is an excellent collection. I hope that I have shown how wearable they are too. Prue may be more than three decades older than me, but she sure knows how to rock a great pair of specs.
