Snapchat, the time-sensitive social sharing platform that’s popular with lots of users slightly younger than myself, has announced a new set of lenses are going on sale as in-app purchases with a price of $1.49 each.

Lenses (or filters for those of us who use Instagram) were added to Snapchat a few months ago and are intended as a way to add a bit more fun to the platform.

Unlike the option to purchase replays of “Snaps” received (US$0.99c for 3 replays), each lens is a permanent feature on your Snapchat account once purchased, so you can use it again and again.

What do you think of Snapchat’s new lenses? Will you be buying them to send to your friends? Tell us in the comments!
